A brief history as told by Mr. George Steiner, a parishioner,
and a member of DANK, a German-American group:

"Concord Presbyterian Cemetery is one of many located along Brownsville
Road. At the time it was founded (probably in the 1840s, judging from some
of the stones) only a few farms existed in the Carrick area. Most of the
population lived in Birmingham (South Side). The families buried in the
cemetery gave their names to many of the streets in the Carrick/Knoxville
area, eg, Nobles Lane, Stewart Street."

"The cemetery was vandalized a number of years ago. (You can see the repairs
that had to be made to erect the stones after they were knocked over.) It's
possible some of the stones are not in their original locations. The rear
section of the cemetery is filled in by broken gravestones. You can see
partial names, dates, etc."
