Harbeson UMC & Beaverdam Cemetery, Harbeson, DE

So, I'm not entirely sure of the situation here. The village (crossroads?) of Harbeson used to be called Beaverdam. On maps, the cemetery is referred to as the Beaverdam Cemetery. Whether or not the Harbeson UMC is a later day incarnation of a Beaverdam UMC, I do not know. (Assuming there actually was a Beaverdam UMC, pure speculation.) The cemetery & the church are across the road (Route 5) from each other, so it's possible that there is no relation whatsoever.
