The marker at the cemetery reads as follows:
On February 25, 1820, John Wright, Sr., John Wright, Jr., William Manifold, William Wright, John Gailey, David Hartman, and Henry Amos, acting as trustees, received a deed from Abraham Jarrett to "a lot of land lying on the north side of Deer Creek being part of a tract called Wild Cat Den, subject to the following conditions that they shall erect and build a house of worship for the use of members of the Methodist Episcopal Church in the United States of America." This marks the beginning of Fellowship Church. The assumption is that a small log church was built on the property where the cemetery is now located. In 1867, on additional land obtained from Rachel and Rufus Lowe, the congregation erected a large frame building with three front doors opening onto wooden steps extending across the entire front of the church.
The church was torn down in the early 1940's.
