I just learned of Asbury M E Church/Cemetery. Does anyone have knowledge of the
cemetery? The remains, sorry to say were removed to Mount. Moriah Cemetery. From
the article I read on the history, it was circa 1887-1900.
The first congregation began to worship in 1827 in an old school house at the corner of Oak (now Ludlow)
and Thirty-third streets. In 1829 they purchased the lot extending through from Chestnut to Ludlow and built
a church fronting on the latter street. In the rear was a burial ground extending to Chestnut Street.
