Zion Methodist Cemetery

This cemetery was used by the church. It was abandoned when the church relocated to its present site in Cornelius. There were only 2 markers visible in 1983-Samuel Kerr, who died in 1829, and Dovey J. Kerr, who died in 1850. In 1983, the description given by William J. Charles to its location was approximately one half mile west of I-77 on Hwy. 73, south to Brinkley Spring on McDowell Creek. The cemetery was on top of the knoll above the spring site.
