From Laytonsville, go north on Highway 108 (Laytonsville Road) until you reach the split for Highway 108 (Laytonsville Road) and Highway 650 (Damascus Road). Turn east on Damascus Road or Highway 650 and go southeast about 1.5 miles. You will see the cemetery on the north side of the road in a field. It has a black iron fence around it.
This is a small family cemetery, which is not in very good shape. There is alot of undergrowth in there and some graves that are sinking. The cemetery started in 1862, but there is someone buried as recent as 1993.
I walked this cemetery on Jan 09, 2004. This includes only the existing headstones.
Copeland, Milton, b. 1914, d. 1993
