Search Cedarville Assembly of God Church Cemetery:

Grace Methodist Episcopal Church North Cemetery was built in 1879 with the land being donated by two sisters of the last name Hall. A stipulation that the land was to be used as a religious purpose or it went back to their heirs. Over the years the church fell upon hard times and closed for a year two because of lack of money, it was dissolved completely in 1908 and sat unused until 1925 when the Assembly of God found interest in it.

A tornado hit the church in 1926 causing great damage but it was repaired. A new brick church was built in 1974 and the old wood frame church was used for Sunday School classes.

The cemetery is divided into lots. One section is closed for burials because of evidence of unmarked graves which probably once had wooden crosses. Some people were being buried in the cemetery during the inactive period of the church so records are not accurate. The oldest marked grave appears to be 1883.
