From Petersburg, Virginia drive about 40 miles southeast to Windsor.
Go about three miles east on Shiloh Drive (Rt. 603). Shiloh Methodist
Cemetery is located in a grove of trees on the northwest side of
Shiloh was the name of an old Methodist church on Shiloh Drive
northeast of Windsor. Old maps show it to be in the Indika VA
community. The Shiloh Methodist Church built a parsonage for their
minister in Windsor in 1893. In an effort to bolster up its declining
membership after the congregation decreased drastically, they
decided to relocate the church to nearby Windsor on the property
adjacent to their parsonage.
In 1906, they moved the building to Church Street, where it remained
for about fifty years until it was torn down and the land sold.
Now there is no Methodist church in the Windsor area. Today, the
site of Shiloh Church is marked by a fairly large cemetery, which
remains in good condition thanks to the care of the Presson family
who lives adjacent to the site.
These information was compiled by reading the tombstone inscriptions.
Alexander Bischoff, Cory DeFreitas, Ben Delton, Brittany Evans,
Daniel Evans, Michael Henderson, Chaz Hornbaker, Jeff Irwin, David
Robertson, Peyton Robertson and I participated in the recording
of this cemetery, which is complete up to Oct 06, 2007. This file
contains all the known and visible burials. There was only one
completely unreadable marker.
