Purdum Cemetery
Montgomery County, Maryland

10610 Watkins Road
Cedar Grove, Maryland

Contributed by Anne Braun, Nov 18, 2002 [annieb1961@comcast.net]. Total records = 8.

From Interstate 270 go north about 3 miles on Highway 355 until you reach Davis Mills Road turn east there and go 1 mile until you reach Watkins Road then turn and go north 1 mile. The cemetery is on the west side of the road ontop of a hill.

This little cemetery was in terrible condition, when I visited on Nov 14, 2002. As I walked through, I found sunken graves and headstones that were broken and off their foundation. Also many broken trees and overgrown vines and wild roses. It is a pretty sad sight.

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.
