The Mary's Cemetery is the combination of research done by Harriet Vaught in 1963 and a booklet titled "A History of Mary's Chapel Methodist Episcopal Church" printed in 1973
"On the hill
just east of the church in the cemetery bearing her name, Mary Carey was
the first person to be buried. The land for both church and
cemetery was given by her son, George W. Carey. It is said that no
one was ever charged a fee for burial privilege in this cemetery and no
records were kept -- people just went in and selected a place and
proceeded to bury their loved one.
