Directions: From Ellijay or Hwy 515, take Hwy 52 East for approx. seven miles to intersection with Roy Road. Turn left onto Roy Road. This old cemetery is on the left about one-half mile down Roy Road -- look for the sign on the left.

The land for a church and cemetery was granted to Cartecay Methodist Church in 1844 by Lewis D. Ellington. After that church was destroyed by fire, a new church was built in 1859 at what is now the intersection of Hwy 52 East and Roy Roy, on land donated to the church by Barnett Wilson. Descendants of Lewis D. Ellington continued to live on the property where the old cemetery is located for more than five generations, and continued active leadership roles in the Cartecay United Methodist Church.

There are more than 45 graves in this old cemetery. The 20 tombstones that may still be legible are included in the list of interments.
