Directions: driving north on 355 from the intersection of Route 355 (Frederick Road) and Shady Grove Road, follow Shady Grove Road turn right or east and continue for about 2.6 miles. Cross over Muncaster Mill Road, Shady Grove Road turns into Airpark Road at this intersection, and continue on Airpark Road about � mile, the gate for the nursery is on the left.

This is a small family cemetery, located within the Pope Farm. Access is granted by MNCPPC (Maryland National Capital Park and Planning Commission).

The cemetery is well maintained but many of the stones have fallen over or are illegible. There are field stones present which have no markings. There is a fenced area of stones within the cemetery.

I walked this cemetery on Apr 15, 2010. This includes all of the existing and legible headstones or markers.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
