Interested in a Religious Freedom side project?

I found an interesting document on Ancestry and transcribed it to a Wikitree page. It is a petition written from the Occoquan Baptist Church to the Virginia Legislature 19 May 1776, at the beginning of the Revolutionary War. It is signed by 47 residents of Prince William County, Virginia. One of the signers is a 6th ggf to me, Hammond Morris-6140. Considering that religious freedom was indeed added to the Bill of Rights, I thought other people with ancestors who signed this petition might want to link their family, too.
