Notes: From Find a Grave:

In 1797 William Henry Ambrose who lived near Bath, Virginia (present day Berkeley Springs, West Virginia) on the forks of the sleepy creek, deeded one acre of land for a free meeting house on his 200 acre farm. Shortly there after a small meeting house was built on the property for anyone who would speak the gospel of Jesus Christ. This chapel is located only a short distance from his home. During this time there were many people who spoke the word but there was no full time preacher. Typically the circuit riders would be the regular ministers. These circut riders were usually Methodist and it is very likely that John Wesley preached there.
This property is now know as Ambrose Chapel Church and Cemetery.

William Henry was also a veteran of the American Revolution he was a Captain in the Berkeley Co. Militia and family lore reports him as being present for the British Surrender at Yorktown, Va. He also gave supplies to the Continental Army as well. Listed in the DAR book of Patriots.
