In Laytonsville, from the intersection of Brink and Highway 108 (Laytonsville Rd) go north on Highway 108 for .8 miles, turn east onto Griffith Road and go 1.7 miles until you reach the Old Griffth Place (a sign says "Maryland Centennial Farm". Turn north up the driveway and go about 400-500 feet. The cemetery is sitting on the east side of the property near a new garage.
A small family cemetery which is located on the Old Griffith Farm. The first burial took place in 1797 and the last one in 1902 according to the headstone readings.
The cemetery is kept up but some of the stones are faded and hard to read. It has an old iron fence around the cemetery and a stone wall.
I visited this cemetery on both Jan 16 and Feb 11, 2004.
Carroll, Mary C., d. Feb 9, 1889, age 59 years, w/o Thomas
