History

Davisburg Cemetery was established in 1844 when the founder of Davisburg, Cornelius Davis, donated the land upon the death of his wife Agness and fellow settler Mrs. Candace Morley.

The cemetery was affiliated with the Protestant Methodist Church which was organized in 1843. Thirty years later a church building was constructed on Davisburg Road opposite the cemetery. The church, known as the “Brick Church,” stood across the street from the cemetery for 43 years but was destroyed by fire in October 1916.

In addition to the Davis Family, Davisburg Cemetery is the final resting place of many prominent first settlers of Davisburg, a Revolutionary War soldier named Solomon Jones, veterans of the War of 1812, as well as many veterans of the Civil War, World War I, World War II and Korean and Vietnam conflicts.
