Four houses of worship have served the Thyatira congregation. The first, called "Lower Meeting House," was constructed of logs approximately 100 yards west of this site around 1749. The name was changed to "Cathey's Meeting House" around 1755. The second, a log building, was built at the same site sometime later in the 1700s. The third, a frame structure, was erected on the site of this marker during the pastorate of Dr. Samuel Eusebius McCorkle, 1777-1805. The present sanctuary was built in 1860.

Thyatira Presbyterian Church, four pirate graves in the old cemetery
Thyatira Presbyterian Church, four pirate graves in the old cemetery
These four stones, three of which bear skulls and crossbones, and the fourth bearing only crossbones, are a source of great interest to the children in the church.

"According to legend, the pirates were executed, and court allowed their burial only if their stones carried the pirate symbol, and bore no names."

Due to the distance from the coast, some have speculated that these men may have been highwaymen instead. Some have said that the men were former pirates who moved to the area, and that they were found out, and hung for their past crimes. Also, some say that the elders of the church were the ones forbidding the names on the stones. It would be interesting to find the court records for this case, if this is the truth. Yet others have said that the images actually indicate deaths from an epidemic disease. Without the dates for the deaths, it is difficult to verify the information.
