In Port Tobacco, from the intersection of Highway 6 and Chapel Point
Road, go south on Chapel Point Road for 1 mile until you reach the address
of 7930 Chapel Point Road. Turn there and go up the road until you see
the cemetery. The cemetery is about 40 feet from the house.
This is a family cemetery that was once abandoned. Most of the people
who are buried there are descendants of the Ferguson- Mitchell Families.
The first burial took place in 1760. The last burial took place in 1938.
For many years, the cemetery was neglected. I tried a several times
in the past to go in there, but because of the poison ivy and thorn
plants, I could not do an accurate reading on the cemetery.
In early October 2006, some of the members of the Charles County Genealogical
Society with the help of Mr. Edelin (the owner of the property) cleared
and cleaned out the cemetery. Today, one is free to go up there and
take a look at this beautiful cemetery. Some of the headstones are over
six feet tall.
It is on property that was called 'Mulberry Grove', which was a plantation
at one time. The cemetery is also known as the Mulberry Grove Cemetery.
This includes all existing and legible headstone readings from when
I visited this cemetery on Nov 26, 2006.
