Temperance Chapel Cemetery and Site of a Methodist Church South
"Madison Tate McGehee and his wife Lucy Cosby McGehee sold this 4 acres of land on June 13, 1854 for forty dollars to the trustees of the Temperance Chapel Methodist Church South. The trustees were S. Treadwell, S. Mathew, C.A. Standfield, C. Varnell and Thomas Chowning. A two story building was on this property at the time of purchase. The McGehee's specified the use of the lower floor by the Methodist Church and the upper floor to be used by the Masonic Fraternity and any Temperance Association. The remainder of the land was to be used as a public burying ground."
