Search Andrews' Methodist Episcopal Cemetery:

Andrews' Methodist Episcopal Church was founded in the late 1820s, with meetings being held first in the dwelling-house of Henry Andrews, and then at a nearby schoolhouse. In 1831, a meetinghouse was built on a one-acre lot on the corner of Henry Andrews' farm, for which no deed was given until July 20, 1833. The church was sold to James Smith in 1856 and converted into a dwelling-house.

The graveyard across the Highland Ridge Road was reserved as such and was used through the 1880s as a burying place. By 1926, the cemetery was overgrown in a grove of locust trees, and many of the stones had fallen over or had been removed.

Today it is part of the Octorara Middle and High School complex, and may no longer be extant.
