Contributed by Anne Braun, May 08, 2003 [annieb1961@comcast.net]. Total records = 30.

In Rockville, from the Interstate 270/Highway 28 exit, go west on Highway 28 for 1 mile until you hit West Jefferson Street. The cemetery is in a white picket fence near the intersection of Highway 28 and 189, West Jefferson Street and N. Van Buren Street. it is on the east side of the intersection next to the Methodist Church parking lot.

The First Baptist Church was first built in 1823 and in 1864, the congregation replaced the church with a brick church that was used until 1914 when that was demolished. The cemetery was used from 1839 to 1896. In 1973, the church sold the cemetery to the Montgomery Historical Society who in 1983 sold the cemetery to the Peerless Rockville Group who maintains the cemetery for now. (The Peerless Rockville Group is a group of residents that is interested in the historical preservation of Rockville)

I visited and walked this cemetery May 6 2003, transcribing all existing headstones.

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.
