      The Bethania congregation was organized in 1760 by the Moravian church and the first burial on this site was recorded shortly after. The cemetery has been in continuous service since then. The site is organized in traditional Moravian fashion as seen in this plat. Men are typically buried in the southern half and women in the northern half. Sites for cremains have recently been established in the northwest and southwest corners of the site. Within each plot rows are numbered west-to-east; graves are numbered with grave 1 closest to the center walkway. View of the entrance gate.

      Surveyed and photographed by Bill Mueller and Thomas McLain for the Forsyth County Genealogical Society in 2016.

      Much of the survey information and most grave locations are taken from Kearney, Elmer R. and Roger D. Snyder. 2009. "God's Acre Bethania Moravian Church Graveyard: a historical account April 23 1760 to December 31 2008" available at the Forsyth County Public Library. Locations of more recent burials may be approximate.
