New Elkridge Meeting House Cemetery (Graveyard On Quaker Hill)

3771 Old Columbia Pike
Ellicott City, Maryland

Lat: 39°15'56"N, Lon: 76°47'57"W

Submitted by Joshua Jenkins, Apr 24, 2003, last edited Dec 08, 2010 [josh@joshjenkins.net]. Total records = 32.

From Main Street in old Ellicott City (the heart of the city), take Old Columbia Pike less than 1/5 mile to 3771 Old Columbia Pike. You can either turn into this driveway or go another 1/5 mile or so and turn into unmarked alleyway.

Section 1 of the cemetery is on the hill (in view). Section 2 is hidden from view in the forest directly behind the hill.

Most graves are only single stones with no markings on them. There are approximately 103 of these that I was able to count.

"The Old Ellicott Family Burying Ground At Ellicott City, Maryland" by the Ellicott Family Graveyard, Inc.: "No doubt the Ellicott brothers also gave land for the very extensive town burying ground on the hillside east of the Ellicott Family Graveyard. This has long since been abandoned and is heavily overgrown. I do not think this burying ground was for Friends only, because some of the grave markers are quite ornate and elaborate, not in keeping with the customs of Friends."

I did these transcriptions 22 Jul 2002 and 1 Aug 2002. I also consulted a separate source "Tombstone Inscriptions From A Few Cemeteries In Howard County, Maryland" by Colonel Thomas Dorsey Chapter for verification purposes only. I have heard on several accounts that this is a Quaker burial ground and records may exist somewhere.
