In Poolsville, go to the intersection of Highways 109 (Beallsville Rd) and Highway 107 (Fisher Ave). go 1 block east on Highway 107 turn and go on West Willard Rd. The cemetery is one block south.
The cemetery did belonged to the Methodist Church in Poolsville that was formed in 1826. The church remains standing however the cemetery is gone. All that remains are some broken pieces or fragments of headstones that are set in cement. Also, the village of Poolsville served as an outpost to both Union and Confederate Soldiers during the Civil War. There are 30 unmarked graves of both Union and Confederate Soldiers. Due to poor record keeping, they do not know the names of the soldiers that are buried there.
I walked this cemetery on Jan 30, 2003.
