Kinghorn Methodist Episcopal Cemetery. King Twp.

Kinghorn Methodist Episcopal Cemetery, aka Episcopal Old Methodist Cemetery, Kinghorn. is located on the east side of Jane Street, just south of King Side Road, in King Twp. The cemetery was established in 1848 on land purchased by Caleb Bobbin believed to be an agent of the Methodist Church. One year later the church building was built.

In 1890 the church was closed and the cemetery was abandoned.  The church was turned into a home, then in 1906 was removed from the site to the farm of John Wade. The cemetery was fenced by a property owner in the 1960's, unfortunately some of the headstones have been deliberately damaged by vandals.  

The site today is in the care of  King Twp.
