This cemetery is not publicly accessible and permission should be sought before visiting. Many early Methodist residents of the area were laid to rest here, on land given for the purpose by pioneer Isaac Davisson, Jr (1790-1851). When Greenlawn cemetery in South Charleston was opened in the latter half of the nineteenth century, those families still in the area stopped using this cemetery. Many, perhaps most, remains and monuments were moved to Greenlawn.
This cemetery is very well maintained by the Warrington family, descended from Isaac & Sarah (Curl) Davisson's daughter Mary, who married Rev. Charles B. Warrington. They purchased the farm in 1956 from the estate of Myrta (Davisson) Herrold, and so the farm remained in the family of the original settlers.
Of the few stones remaining, many are broken and worn, and nearly all have been set in a row near the gate; they continue to function as memorials but it does not seem likely that the latter continue to mark particular graves.
