Cane Creek Friends Meeting Since 1751
The first Cane Creek Meetinghouse stood about two miles east on land belonging to John Stanfield. The first of four meetinghouses on this site was built in 1764 on land given by William Marshall. The third meetinghouse was destroyed by fire in 1879 and the fourth in January 1942. Ten months later the present building was completed and services were once again held on this site. Cane Creek has accomplished much through the years. Sylvan Academy was established in 1866, a part time minister was hired in 1918 and in 1941 Elbert Newlin was hired as the first full time minister. The first parsonage was built in 1947 on land donated by Pearl Griffin. The present parsonage was built in 1990 on land donated by David Carter. Strength from our past, faith in the future.

Abigail Overman Pike
1709 - 1781
A charter member of the Cane Creek Meeting and a recorded Quaker minister, she lived her Christian faith as she practice her Quaker beliefs. The Pike home stood about two miles west. She and Rachel Wright were part of a delegation that traveled on horseback to Perquimans County to request the Quarterly Meeting's permission to establish a Monthly Meeting at Cane Creek. She traveled extensively to promote the growth of other Quaker Meetings and to represent Cane Creek at various meetings. Cane Creek relied on her judgment in many areas of the Meeting. She and John Pike married in 1731 and had 8 children. After John's death in 1774, she moved from the area and joined New Garden Meeting. She is buried at Muddy Creek burial ground. This marker made possible by the efforts of Cane Creek Quaker Men and Friends.
