Text of marker: "WHITESVILLE METHODIST CHURCH CEMETERY (Continued from other side) The adjacent cemetery predates the church building. It has several types of burial markings from the earliest stacked stone and brick graves to metal mail-order grave markers. There are numerous family plots defined by retaining walls, copings and iron fencing. Many graves are unmarked as uninscribed field stone markers were inadvertently removed. The earliest burial date on a marker is 1844 for Reuben Mobley, one of the church founders. ERECTED BY THE HISTORIC CHATTAHOOCHEE COMMISSION AND WHITESVILLE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH 2002"
