This cemetery was established in 1747. A Historical Sign notes as follows: The first church in Rockingham County was built on this site in 1747 on land owned by Captain Daniel Harrison of the Colonial Militia. Serving as a "Chapel of Ease" for Augusta Parish, the first building is believed to have been built of logs. The chapel was replaced by a larger frame building some 20 years later. Following the Revolutionary War, the church was used by a Methodist congregation; it was sold and functioned as a barn until it was torn down about 1900.
