This cemetery was named by the Zoar Regular Baptist Church that was located on this site in 1847.
Thomas Hamm called it the Lewelling Burial Grounds in his cemetery books.
Old rumors have it that there are Indian burial grounds on this site. A few years ago, Indian descendants from Florida use to come here and have a ceremony every few years. This area was populated by Indians in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
