Yatesville Cemetery: Notes

Yatesville cemetery This cemetery, though adjacent to the historic and beautiful Yatesville Methodist church is older than the church. It belongs now to an association which was incorporated in 1865, but served the local community many years before that. Some of the burials were reinterments from private cemeteries on local farms.
