Old Brick Church

The so-called "Old Brick Church" was organized by the Presbyterians before the Revolution and the existing brick building was constructed in 1788.  A branch of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian (A. R. P.) Church took over the site in 1803 and the building was in active use as a church until 1920.  The church is situated in Fairfield County SC near Little River, on a small hill just above the point where SC 213 crosses said river.  Many Revolutionary War veterans are reputed to be buried here, in the adjacent cemetery, including the well-known Whig partisan, Captain James Kincaid.  However, I was unable to find any gravestones with legible inscriptions for anyone of Revolutionary War vintage.
