In Pisgah, from the intersection of Highway 425 and Poor House Road, go south / southeast for 2.3 miles on Poor House Road until you reach Annapolis Woods Road. Turn right and continue south 1 mile. Turn right onto Bowieland Road and go west on a gravel road for .5 miles to the end of the road.
Next one needs to ask the owner of the property for permission to visit and also if they will show you where the cemetery is. It will be about .5 miles south / southwest from the owner's house in the woods.
This is a small, badly neglected family cemetery. It is overgrown with trees, weeds and other types of plants.
I compared my findings with the records that the Charles County Historical Society done in 1978, which is located at the Southern Maryland Community College Library. I found that there were 6 unmarked graves. I saw about 3 good size indentions in the ground while visiting. The cemetery began in the late 1800s.
I visited and recorded this cemetery on Jun 30, 2005.
