Old Urbana Cemetery (Old Episcopal)
Frederick County, Maryland

8990 Urbana Church Road
Urbana, Maryland

Lat: 39°19'34"N, Lon: 77°21'19"W

Contributed by Anne Braun, May 01, 2003, last updated Sep 20, 2003 [annieb1961@comcast.net]. Total records = 109.

In Urbana, from the intersection of Interstate 270 and Highway 80, go north on highway 80 until you reach Urbana Church Road, turn left and go 3 blocks. The cemetery is on the west side of the road near an old church.

A very old church cemetery that is somewhat neglected. There are some of the headtones that are hard to read and some of the headstones are on the ground and buried as well.

The cemetery is next to an old Episcopal Church that is abandoned and partly standing. The last burial took place in 1965.

There was an article that printed in the Frederick News-Post on May 27 2003. The person who spoke about the cemetery is a descendant of a person buried there. According to the church and cemetery records, four people who are buried there willed some of their money into a trust fund to take care of the cemetery. I do not know if that money is still there.

There are also about 250-275 people buried here. This means that about half of the headstones are gone. This transcription includes only the headstones still there, so my readings will only reflect what I found.

I walked through this cemetery on Apr 26, 2003 for the first time. Final visits were Sep 15-16, 2003
