The Turnbull family came to this area in 1836 and settled at what was to later become known as Turnbull's Corners, later it became West Essa. The Turnbull's donated land for building the Methodist Church. In the beginning the church was part of what was known as the Cookstown Circuit. The West Essa Circuit was later formed in 1879 but by 1889, the church was closed. The building was then torn down in the early 1900's and the cemetery became overgrown. In 1971, the Cemetery Committee of Essa Council cleaned up the lot, gathered all of the old stones together, and set them in a concrete base with a plaque commemorating the pioneer families, and enclosed the area with a steel fence.
