Oak Grove Methodist Episcopal Church & School
It is thought this cemetery was near the site of the old Oak Grove M.E. Church which existed here in the mid-twentieth century. In Robbins, Century Review of Maury County, Tennessee: 1807 - 1907, this is said: Oak Grove Church is on the Natchez Trace, 2 1/2 miles northeast of Kinderhook. It was established in the 1840's and served by pastors of the Santa Fe Circuit. The organization disbanded some 25 years ago (ca 1881.) A school was maintained here from the 1840's. The frame structure was erected about 1892, and recent teachers (1907) have been Raleigh Elam, Bettie Potts, T. W. Rail, Savannah Priest, Florence Bassham, Allie Walters, Fannie Cowley & A. McKnight. Translated from Page 273.
