Makemie, known as the Father of American Presbyterianism, founded a number of Presbyterian churches on the Delmarva Peninsula.
He died at his home in 1708 and was buried on the property that now is the park.
Among items found so far are buttons, nails, cow bones and teeth, colonial-era glass, clay pipe fragments and many types of ceramics, including fragments of rare green and yellow tiles experts think were used as a decorative feature around a fireplace.
