"It is proper to state, in connection with this, that at a later period, the date not known, a brick church was built on the road from Jamestown to Williamsburg, called 'Main Church', in which Bishop Madison preached in the concluding years of his ministry. He doubtless preached at Jamestown in the earlier part of it. The Main Church has recently disappeared. Underneath it was found a brick vault, containing the remains of some unknown ones who were buried there."*
"Since the above was written I have received the following information: - 'The last minister of the 'Main Church' before Bishop Madison was the Rev. Mr. Bland, afterward of Norfolk. His wife was a daughter of the Rev. William Yates, who was for a short time President of William and Mary College. When the church was taken down, a piece of timber broke the arch of a vault containing a coffin, with a plate on which was inscribed 'Elizabeth Bland,' with a vacant space sufficient for another coffin.'"
