Mountain Home Baptist Church

Mountain Home Baptist Church was organized in the 1890s in the Edneyville community.
The church is located on Gilliam Mountain Road near Sugarloaf Mountain Road and Little Creek.
Common surnames of families with graves in the cemetery include Jackson, Justice, Ledbetter, Spicer, Stepp, Laughter, Marshall, Gilbert, Jones, Owensby, Williams and Merrell.
There are four Confederate graves located in the cemetery.
Benjamin F. Justice enlisted in the 1st Battalion N.C. Junior Reserves, Co. C. His grave stone states that he served in the 1st N.C. Artillery, Co. C. Since he was born in 1846 he was not of military age to serve until 1864. Most of the Junior Reserves were transferred and re-assigned to other units. It is possible that he was transferred to the 1st N.C. Artillery, but there is no record of his service with that regiment. He died in 1917.

Hezekiah K. Laughter enlisted in the 56th N.C. Infantry Regiment, Co. G, Henderson Blues. Pension records are the only records available of his service. He died in 1941.
Samuel Carson Laughter enlisted in the 64th N.C. Infantry Regiment, Co. B. He deserted in 1863. He died in 1917.
Henry C. McKillop enlisted in the 25th N.C. Infantry Regiment, Co. A, Edney’s Greys. He was wounded in 1864 during the Siege of Petersburg. He was in Union custody in March 1865, confined by the Union in Washington, D.C., and released in March 1865. He died in 1916.
One Union veteran has a grave site at the cemetery.
John Alexander Merrell enlisted in the 12th Tenn. Cavalry, Co. L, in April 1864. He was ineligible for mandatory Confederate service until 1864. He died in 1912.
