This cemetery has an interesting history because it has belonged to 2 denominations as well as the town of Matthews. It originally belonged to the Pleasant Hill Methodist Church, then to the town of Matthews, and now Christ Covenant (Presbyterian) Church, which is a block away from the cemetery. The church has arranged with the Heritage Funeral Home to respond to questions concerning the cemetery.
