Pearson Chapel AME Church (Yanceyville, Caswell County, NC)

The Pearson Chapel AME Church is on Highway 62S in Yanceyville, Caswell County, North Carolina.

A quick look at the Pearson Chapel AME Church cemetery entries on Find A Grave showed the earliest grave marker dated 1913. Of course this may not be a complete survey, and markers with an earlier date may exist.

What is the genesis of the name: Pearson Chapel. Who was Pearson? Who owned the land on which the church stands? Who were the ministers over the years? Much of the land in the area was owned by Sally Womack Wiggins.
