You might look at the Mill Creek COB:

Jacob Harshberger (probably related) was buried there. This is near the Rockingham gap at Massanutten.

Jacob Harshbarger was my 4x great grandfather. I believe that he was a
Baptist minister. There are some old church records in "Massanutten" by
Harry M. Strickler. The LDS films "ministers returns" (#2167844, 2167845
and 2167846) give lists of marriages performed by each minister. The book
"The Brethren in Virginia" by Roger E. Sappington gives information on
early Brethren in Virginia. I hope this helps a little!
