See my book: Ravenscroft School in Asheville, published in 2013. The "Leicester Episcopal Church Yard" was originally connected to St. Paul's Episcopal Church (Protestant Episcopal-NOT Methodist Episcopal). St. Paul's was a mission church founded by Trinity Parish Asheville and maintained by the Ravenscroft Associate Mission and Training School. The church parishioners either moved away or died by 1914-the last year services were held there. In 1920 the church was demolished and sold for lumber. The "church yard" cemetery remained, and in 1938 it was incorporated as the "Leicester Episcopal Church Yard" and a board of trustees was established, and then re-established in 1996.-- Dale Wayne Slusser
