Brief History of Cemetery

On May 10, 1872, JACOB SAINE deeded two acres to the UNITED METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH SOUTH (Deed Book R, page 316, 317) The church was originally a log cabin built on rock pilings, which was used for a school also. Jacob Saine died on November 21, 1887 and his land was passed down to family members. There are 27 marked graves and lots of unmarked graves with 4 confederate soldiers buried at Shady Grove. Abee, Black, Edmondson, Gaddis, Head, Mincy, Morgan, Pitner, and Saine are the ones with readable markers.
