The Kinghorn Methodist Episcopal Cemetery was established in 1848. It sits on a small hill and contains 30 headstones which most have now cracked with age. A church was built at this location in 1849 but was closed in 1890 and the cemetery was abandoned. The church was turned into a house and in 1906 was moved to a farm owned by John Wade. I have tried to research Mr Wade but have come up with nothing.

Unknown User Interesting place. A lot of the graves are of women and children I guess the women probably died in childbirth or shortly after..
