To reach this cemetery from Rockville, travel north on Rte 355, Frederick Road, turn right on Redland Road, pass over the metro/railroad bridge, turn right, at the bottom of the hill, on Yellowstone Way. The cemetery is located behind the south side of the Redland Baptist Church.

This is a family and community cemetery with aprox 95-115 burials. Date range of burials are 1860s to the present. This cemetery is also known as the Ricketts Family Cemetery.

The cemetery is in good condition, some stones have fallen and some are illegible. A tree had fallen and the grass was high. A family member visiting the cemetery told me there is regular maintenance there.

I visited and walked this cemetery Aug 13, 2009, taking a picture of all visable headstones and markers, I have transcribed from these photos.
