This cemetery is listed as "Shaffer Cemetery 5-2" in the book, "Sumner County TN Cemetery Records," published in 1981 by Margaret Cummings Snider, Joan Hollis Yorgason, perhaps after the earliest gravestone here. However, this is the old Methodist Church cemetery.

Located on the old site of First Methodist Church, this small, disused cemetery is sandwiched between the rear of a strip of shops at 109 Walton Ferry Road, and the rear of the H.G. Hill Food Store at 213 W. Main St. It is regularly mown and easily accessible. See map. The red marker is positioned precisely on the cemetery.

All extant gravestones are listed and photographed.

First Methodist moved from this site in the 1960s, and the old building was subsequently torn down. The church web site has a photograph of the old church building that stood here. The old parsonage, which was across the road, has also been torn down.

Always a small cemetery, according to members who attended the church at this Walton Ferry Road location, the most "recent" gravestone shows a death date of 1942. The oldest death date is 1899, shown on the marker of a young child, Daniel Robert Shaffer.
