relegation to profane use


Little Hill Church in Broad Creek Hundreds near Laurel Delaware was sold and was made into a private residence.  For a church conversion they did a nice job on it.  How many old people remember the church conversion in the movie "Alice's Restaurant"?  It was here in 1897 that James M Gordy crawled under the church to hide from lawmen hunting him for killing his wife.  He was hung.  In 1858 a colored woman by the name of Purnal who lived close to the church left for market leaving her six children at home.  The children killed the youngest one with an axe and chopped the body up.
