      Canvassed by Jessie McLam and Rancher `Doc' Preddy, March 2007.

      Berry and Barbary Preddy were the great great grandparents of Doc Preddy. He helped set their tombstone, and remembers having to push it in a wheelbarrow through the woods. The chain link fence surrounding the cemetery was installed by family members in the 1970s.

      Thomas Banks' grave is designated by a marker stating he is a Revolutionary Patriot. He gave the land for Banks United Methodist Church on Hwy 96 north of Wilton. He married Susannah Preddy, who was, some say, his 5th wife. (Information from Rancher `Doc' Preddy)

      The memorial marker in front of Banks United Methodist Church states "Thomas Banks Founder of Banks United Meth Church; Revolutionary Patriot; B - 1709 Va, D - 1789 Granville County. Is buried in Berry Priddy Cemetery, belonging to family of his 3rd wife Susannah Priddy Banks who left for Texas with son Thomas, d. enroute, was returned here for burial next to Thomas Sr. Plaque erected by Banks Asso., Thomas G.
