According to an article reprinted from the 1889 History of Moniteau . . . Counties, Missouri in the Recording of Linn Township Cemeteries:
The Bethel Methodist Church east of Jamestown, the first Methodist church in the county, dates back to 1840. Among the early preachers were Mr Wilbur, Thomas Wallace, Thatcher, Daniel Leaper, John Gray, J Monroe and Ben Donaldson. The old building stood on Section 2, Township 46, Range 14, until 5 years ago (1884), when the site changed to Section 28 on Bruce's Landing Road. James Miller, Jr, other trustees of Bethel meeting house, were given a deed for two acres of land, by the administrator's of James Miller's estate, in August, 1846. This denomination built a church at Jamestown in 1889.

 

James Albin and Alan Sparks re-visited this cemetery in April 2007. Pictures were taken in February 2005 and April 2007. Higher resolution pictures were taken August 1, 2009.
