105 Johnson St, Kingston, GA 30145

Est. 1852

Queen Chapel Independent Methodist Church was established in 1852. The cemetery adjacent to the church was used by many settlers who relocated to Kingston after the Civil War. Melvinia Sheilds, Michelle Obama’s great great great grandmother, also lies at rest within the cemetery. Melvina ‘Mattie’ Shields McGruder was a member of Queen Chapel Methodist Church. (I believe the unknown Confederate dead marker is located at this church, but cannot tell without visiting)
