Service Cemetery was established in 1803 on land surrounding the church building that had been obtained from the Muhlenberg heirs of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. In 1902 Service Cemetery was named the "John Anderson Cemetery", as a memorial to the first "Seceder" pastor called to area.
Dr. John Anderson, the first pastor, came to his service charge in the autumn of 1792.
Burials began at Service Cemetery in 1803, and it is of particular interest to the writer that among the very first interments was that of his Great-Great-Grandmother Agnes Vance Campbell, whose death and burial occurred the same year the cemetery was established.
