I was going by the stories I had read in doing my research for a trip to the area.  I did read about thousands of pounds of gunpowder confiscsated from a British ship Little Carpenter and stored in the Church.  That this soon became a common occurrence leading to Major DeVeaux in May 1779 to drstroy not only the church but also the Sheldon Plantation

Jan 14, 1865 General Logan troops  part of Sherman's March burned it again.  The source I read which I can't find right now said it was due to arms stored there  But then who knows.  I know tales that have been told about California sites that are just legends that people quote as true.

Either way it is a beautiful ruin
