I love the new website! It looks great! :)
Congrats on the new site! It looks great.
Thanks to John & Jen and weebly we now have a Great web site.
We enjoyed visiting Pennepack Baptist Church last Friday, . We were looking for the grave of my ancester John Wright, 1729-April 13, 1792 and possibly his wife Rachael (Marple) Wright 1729-Nov. 28, 1801. The published record lists a site for a Rachael next to him but the dates are 100 years off, so I was wondering if someone had mistranscribed them.
If there are paper records, I am also looking for a marriage record of their daughter Sarah to Jonathan Potts, supposedly in 1785. they were church members so I don't know why they would not have been married there, but I have never found a record.
The church is beautiful, even in the rain. We hope to visit again, and will be sorry to miss the celebration next weekend.
I think I found their Grave stone's, We are very busy right now with our 325th I will get back with soon.
I.m working on your request but I need your email address so that I can send you some photos and documents.Please use the Contact & Connect button and Submit a comment to the website maintainer.
I am also a descendant of John and Rachael (Marple) Wright. I visited the cemetery about 8 years ago looking for their graves but either I missed them or the stones were too worn to be able to make out the inscriptions. If possible, I would also be interested in the location of their graves. I'm planning to be in the Philadelphia area in late July and would very much like to stop there again. I am descended from John and Rachael's son, William and his wife, Eleanor (Northrop) Wright who, I believe, are also buried there. I would also be interested in the location of William and Eleanor's graves if known.
Sarah! Hi! I'm visiting the church on sat and looking for the same people as you! We might be related!
He is my ancestor also. My grandmother was Carrie Wright before she got married.
I know where the Wright family plots are, if you can please provide me with your email address I can take some photos this weekend while I'm there to make it more easier for you to locate them. Also if you can give me William & Eleanor's Death dates for my research. Please use the Contact & Connect button and Submit a comment to the website maintainer to leave a email address.
I am a descendant also of Harrie and Anna Mary Wright.
John Wright: b. Abt. 1728; d. April 13, 1792
Rachael (Marple) Wright: b. Abt. 1729; d. November 28, 1801.
William Wright: b. April 01, 1760; d. April 07, 1813

I am planning on visiting the church and cemetery this weekend. I have been doing geneaology research on my Hart family tree and I believe my 7x great-grandparents, John Hart (1651-1714) and Susannah Rush (1654-1725), are buried there. Is this so? Their son, John Hart (1685-1763), was a founder of the Southampton Old School Baptist Meeting House. Any information you have would be appreciated! Thanks.
Lisa, Please go to Contact and Connect so I can email you any info.
Working on it now
John and Susannah also my 7x Great Grand Parents. I visited the cemetery and church on Wednesday of this week along with my brother and our wives.
I was hoping to find something as well. Did you visit the Hart Burial Ground?
Would like info on the descendants of Elias Keach. How might I obtain it?
Enjoyed my visit 3 years ago. I was not able to see the inside of the church, but I will be back. My ancestor, Randle Morgan and his wife, Grace Ledyard left Pennepack to become founding members of Southampton Church.
Mike, Be glad to have you come visit. Let us know the dates so we can arrange to open the church for you.
I am searching for info on gggg grandparnets Peter and Sarah Taylor (married 1697) . Your church appeared somewhere in my research. I would greatly appreciate any information you might have on these folks.
Thanks, Barbara Novak, Beaver, PA
I'm also a desentant of Sarah Taylor the grand daughter of Malachi Taylor. Is this the same Sarah? If so she and her grand father are buried at the church.
Joy and joy today for grace are with us even today and that will inspirer me to greet you again in blessing and in the wells of living water to drink,thanks and bless and joy,keijo sweden
Thanks to all of you for visiting our website. All of the work it takes to keep this and the entire historic Meetinghouse and cemetery up to date is done by volunteers. Thank you, Tim!
If my counting is correct I am the sixth generation descendant of William and Charlotte Grookett. I found the headstones of Charlotte and her daughter Mary Ann on the back fence on the south side of the church. Thanks for the wonderful care of your beautiful church and graveyard. I hope to return when I can tour your church and learn and share more historical information. It was here for the day from SC.
like to contact with you.

If you would like to leave a mailing address, email, or would like us to send you more information please use the contact us button.
Thank you for your interest in Pennepack Baptist Church.
As I was sitting at my desk and reading this blog it "dawned" on me that
my ancestors all the way down to my parents and my sister have been in on helping to start churches. There is also on my mother;s side an ancestor that has been named for bringing the gospel of Christ to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. My parents along with 6 other couples started a very large Assembly of God Church in Flint, Mich over 87 years ago. My sister and her husband gave money to start a church in Berkeley, Mi. It has a lot of Africans and Muslims that attend. This idea of helping to start churches must have come from the Eaton side of my ancestors. So happy and thankful to God that trait is in our family. Blessings to all of the people on this blog. My son is determined that we come to Philadelphia this summer. I so look forward to seeing this church and grave yard.
I am witness to seeing two identical images of Jesus Christ. Image of beast appears as image of Christ in worship buildings Dan 8:10-11;Is14:13-14;2Thess2:4;Matt 24:15;Rev 17:8;Matt24:24;Matt 7:22;Rev 18:22-24. I have testimony on video "Christ testimony of the churches around the world" All churches around world connected to mother church in Rome Rev 17:5;Dan7:23. 1st centuryAD roman catholic church change Torah Is 9:5 to Is 9:6 and Mary's conception into fable. this Rev22:18;Rom1:25;Rev 13:18.virgin birth teaching does not confess Christ came in flesh! True prophecy Christ born of man and woman to redeem both!Jesus was 14th great grandson thru sons of David 1chr17:11. John prophet of highest saw and heard God anointing Jesus from heaven! Message not a joke. Plagues coming to churches quicklyRev14:9-10;1cor 11:27;Rev 9. God calling his people to prayer come out of worship buildings and get ready for prophecy Joel then great trib Dan 12:10. Don't be spiritually trapped in these worship buildings under judgment of God luk 21:24;Rev 11:1-2;1pet4:17-18.
I read the history of Pennepack Baptist Church with great joy as I am a direct descendant of Thomas Dungan mentioned in your history who planted the first Baptist church in Pennsylvania. Like my ancestor, I am an ordained Baptist pastor.
Hello there Cousin.
I know my great grandma went to your church, when she was young. I have since researched my genealogy and found I have many ancestors buried in the graveyard. I hope to visit there the next time I come to the area.
I was delighted to find your website. Abel Morgan is my 8th great-grandfather. I will be by to see the church and will be trying to find his gravesite at the Mount Moriah Cemetery. I understand his headstone may be in the stairway at the First Baptist Church on S 17th St in Philadelphia. Any information regarding the Morgan family is greatly appreciated.
It would be great to have you visit. The name of Morgan is very popular in the Baptist History of this country. One of the Morgan brothers wrote the first Baptist history books here in this country.
Abel Morgan, who pastored this church was my 6x Great Grandfather, his son Abel Morgan, my 5x pastored Middletown Baptist in New Jersey. Contact me I will happily give you much of what I have found. I plan on writing a book on them this year.
My 6th great grandparents were members here. Randle and Grace Ledyard Morgan and baptized by Jenkin Jones in 1737. Haven't been able to find a connection to Able. What have you found that you would share? We made a trip to Pennypac a couple of years ago but it was closed.
Urgent alert advising all Jesus Christ believers -I am witness seeing two identical images of Jesus Christ. Testimony video "Christ testimony of the churches around the world". The spirit of antichrist was already at work and continues to this day until the coming of Lord Jesus. Holy scriptures were counterfeited during Roman Empire times by certain men who added and took away words of prophecy Rev22:18. they started Roman Catholic Church. They transferred tampered scriptures of original Torah into a book they called Holy Bible. Holy Bible book contains mixture of counterfeited and original scriptures. The original writings of prophecy found on Chabad.org 2Thess2:15. These men changed Torah Is9:5-6 to KJVIs9:6-7. this is Rom1:23,25 (1Pet1:23) and Rev13:18!
They change testimony of Mary's conception into a fable 2pet1:16. They change genealogy in the scriptures to deter the bloodline of David leading to Messiah Jesus. Joseph and Mary were married and intimate but Mary found without child (Baron). God only opens and closes the womb Gen30:22;Is66:9. God open Mary's womb to receive Joseph son of David's seed for natural conception Rom8:3;Rom1:3.
They change Sabbath to a Roman sun god worship day. They change the wording of the mystery of God to cover up the true testimony of Jesus Rev10:7. I am witness to seeing image of beast and mystery of Iniquity coming from inside these worship buildings. The Lord calling his people to truth study original Torah and compare to Holy Bible scriptures you will see where holy scriptures were tampered 2Tim2:15. the chosen disciples knew men were teaching another Jesus and changing word of God Acts20:28-31;1John 2:18-19. Must come out of worship buildings. get into prayer for coming prophecy Joel God's Spirit pour out upon all flesh then immediately follows Great Trib Rev7:2-3. Again people of God get into prayer to escape plagues coming to any building set up for worshiping God 2:thess2:4. Many believers who read this message will see the image Matt24:15; Rev17:8. Jesus knew about the image and overcame it by the true Spirit of God Luke4:9.
love the new website... Gary and I will be stopping by soon... love to all.
Dear brothers and sisters:
We would like to offer you a free book for your daily study and meditation about the future prophesies of the world, economy crisis, the planet ecological disaster, how and why the increasing of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis and typhoons around the world and the end of humanity.
Hercolubus or Red Planet written by V. M. Rabolu is a book which speaks about the most imminent events to come. In this small book, the author tackles serious topics of actuality that are happening nowadays like the atomic tests in the ocean and the fatal consequences causing the unbalance changes of the climate around the world. He describes the controversial question of the existence of conscientious beings in other planets of the universe. Likewise, he confirms the existence of an enormous planet, six times bigger than Jupiter, which is approaching our planet in an alarming way. He describes the consequences for us.
In his book, V. M. Rabolu teaches the system to eliminate the psychological defects and the techniques of the astral unfolding to be the only existing key to escape from the coming cataclysm.
V.M. Rabolu (1926-2000) was born in Tolima (Colombia). In 1952, he found the true knowledge by means of many years of practising what he teaches in this book. He managed to develop his extraordinary capacities that transformed him into a spiritual guide of international renown.
In 1998, he wrote "Hercolubus or Red Planet" based in his direct and conscientious experience. V.M. Rabolu describes the terrible events that will happen in a short term. He teaches the way to obtain a deep transformation of the human being. Nowadays, the statements in his book have been recognized by a large number of readers around the world who are getting many benefits from his teachings.
V.M. Rabolu is one of those few souls with awakened Conscience, and his teachings have become indispensable in these times when materialism and the lack of moral values have transformed our society into a madness and chaos full of wars, alcohol, drugs, sexual abuse, misery, painting a very dark future for new generations.
Hercolubus or the Red Planet is written above all with a great dose of sensibility and love for humanity. The assertions contained in the book will draw the attention of society as the events unfold in the near future.
From the table of contents:
Hercolubus or Red Planet
Nuclear Tests in the ocean and the ecological disasters
Elimination of the Psychological Defects or Egos
Astral Unfolding and its techniques
The mystery of life in other planets
The Book synthesizes our work with three factors: The elimination of the psychological defects, with which every person can achieve scientific chastity and the love for humanity and our planet.
V.M. Rabolu’s message is clear and conclusive: "Human beings must increase their level of conscience to overcome the forthcoming worldwide calamities."

That's great news, Thanks for Sharing it with us.
So happy you have a website to see pictures and records. I'm a direct descendant of Griffith and Bridget Miles and their line of Joseph and Benjamin's. I know they left Wales 1683 on Penn's 7th ship and left the Quaker church upon arrival. I also know they practiced "hands-on healing'' according to records. Obviously there are no family pictures this far back but I do have a picture of my greatgrandfather Benjamin Cottman
Miles in horse drawn carriage with his wife and children, my grandfather, taken in front of Pennepack. I believe they were
buried at your church as well. Thank you. Pictures are wonderful. Peace.
I am so excited to see your site, I have just learned that my 6 x Great Grandfather, Abel Morgan, pastored your church until his death in 1722. I have been planning a trip out this summer to see the Middletown Baptist Church where his son, my 5 x Great Grandfather pastored, as well as the one in Delaware where his brother Enoch and my 7x Great Grandfather Thomas Griffith pastored. Any suggestions you may have, how I could see and look around causing the least possible disruption to you, your staff or church family would be appreciated.
Hello! Enjoyed reading your comments.
My Miles ancestors played a major role in establishing Pennepack Baptist, Baptist Church of the Great Valley, and Welsh Tract Baptist Church. I believe Abel Morgan had a son, Abel Morgan Jr., who must have been a friend and/or business associate of my gggg Grandfather, David Miles (1735-1805) because his name shows up as a witness/signator to land transactions involving David Miles. Any further info would be most appreciated. I am visiting Pennepack Baptist in late July. Were you able to arrange a tour of the church/grounds in advance?
Thanks in advance,
James A. Miles
Thank you! Yes, he had a son, Abel Morgan, my 5 x Great Grandfather who pastored Middletown Baptist in Middletown NJ, he also wrote a book published by Ben Franklin, I have read it. Middletown Baptist also found a document in the church in 2016 during a renovation where Morgan and his senior leadership had cast out all the Tories from their church and declared themselves as patriots for the new free and independent nation. I have not made it out yet, still hoping to this summer or fall.
If Mr. Fred Moore is unable to met with you, let me know, I will see if I can. I work 5:30 AM to 2:00 PM.
firstname.lastname@example.org. I have lots to share with you if interested to learn about my Miles ancestors who were certainly all around yours.
Jim Miles (1946---)
Jim Miles and Jim Morgan - Please email me at email@example.com to discuss visiting Pennepack Baptist Church and Graveyard.
I have to figure out my schedule, my plans are this summer of fall. I need to see Pennepack Baptist Church where my 6x Great Grandfather Abel Morgan pastored, then I also need to go to Middletown Baptist in New Jersey to see where my 5x Great Grandfather Abel Morgan II pastored and the Welsh Track Baptist Church in Delaware where Abel first arrived in America, met my 6 x Great Grandmother and where her father my 7 x Great Grandfather Thomas Griffith pastored followed by Abel's brother Enoch. I have already been to Little Pigeon Creek Baptist in Southern Indiana, not same building but on same site, started by my 4 x Great Grandfather and Grandmother along with others including the Thomas Lincoln family around 1810. I don't know who the first pastor was.
At some point, I want to go to Wales to see where Abel was from, and see what else I can learn about his father, my 7 x Great Grandfather Morgan ap Rherrdych who was a early Baptist pastor, who defied the King of England when commanded to quit preaching, was arrested, imprisoned and tortured for four years before being released. He continued to preach underground for what I believe was the rest of his life.
Just reading through your comments, and wondering about Abel Morgan. Can you determine which Abel Morgan was instrumental in the founding of our church, Montgomery Baptist Church, in 1719. He visited there from Pennepack Baptist to lead worship services. The first Pastor of our church was Benjamin Griffiths, in 1725.
Any information you can provide is appreciated, as we are gathering background for our 300th anniversary.
Ken, Jim Morgan is trying to contact you about your reply to his message. Please reply to his last message. I think someone needs to leave their email address or contact info in the message field.
Nice blogg post
My seventh-great-grandfather, Thomas Bibb (1669-1701) was a member of your church. Kinda proud of that.
I recently came across a land deed in my father’s attic from Enoch Edwards dated 1792 and I am trying to determine how we are related to him. If it is possible, I would like to visit the church cemetery. How do I go about arranging this?
I got a notice someone answered me but I fat fingered the message and accidentally unsubscribed.
I am studying Baptist History this Spring with Dr. Karen Bullock at B. H. Carroll Seminary. I am fascinated with the story of your church. I hope to visit someday! May God bless your congregation.
I am researching my family tree and am a descendent of John Wright. There are many Wright's buried in the south cemetary. My husband and I are planning a to visit the church next summer. Is there a map of the cemetary so we can locate the grave sites? Also does the church hold any documents of families who belonged to the church?
I am the 6th great granddaughter of Rev Joseph Eaton, son of John and Joan of Wales, he was 7 yrs of age when arriving to Penn. in 1686, their is proof the family came earlier, Rev George Eaton his brother's descendants had DNA testing that matched with my brothers 36 of 37 marks. I have a great deal of information on this Eaton line. Would like to read the minutes written back then to see if there was more news of this family , I understand there may have been a daughter born to John and Joan by the name of Magot.
