Description"The Argyle Cemetery is adjacent to the Argyle Bible Church, north of Colchester on road 1250N, just off road 550E. It was established in the 1830s and was used for many years primarily by Bersheba Cumberland Presbyterians, who erected a church there in 1854. As this photograph shows, the cemetery includes a bell that is a monument to that early church, which changed its name to Argyle Cumberland Presbyterian in 1884."
