|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The cemetery is located on the northwest side of Amsterdam Road SW (Ohio State Route 164) at the right angle turn (east to south) of the road about 850 feet west of the intersection of Amsterdam Road SW with Scio Road SW (Ohio State Route 322). The cemetery is located behind (to the north) and to the (west) side of the former Perrysville Methodist Church, currently owned by the Carroll County Historical Society. The church was founded in 1833 as the Perrysville Methodist Episcopal Church. In 1939, the Methodist Episcopal and the Methodist Protestant denominations united, and the church became the Perrysville Methodist Church. In 1968, the Methodist denomination and the Evangelical United Brethren denomination united to form the United Methodist Church. Since each denomination had a church in Perrysville, the Perrysville Methodist Church was vacated, and the former Evangelical United Brethren Church became the Perrysville United Methodist Church. Ownership of the Perrysville Methodist Church building was transferred to the ownership of the Carroll County Historical Society on 19 January 1972. The cemetery remains under the care of the Perrysville United Methodist Church.
