Subject: RE: Origins: Folk tunes in methodist hymn books?
I don't know how you'd filter for Methodist hymns specificly, but the Cyber Hymnal (TM) website lists hymn tune names. In the Episcopal (US) Hymnal, the tune names are credited with things like "American Southern Harmony" "Welsh folk tune" "English Playford dance" and the like along with known composers and lyric authors. Getting hands on actual ink and paper hymnals and searching the tune name indexes in the back might give you some of what you're searching for.
