Shoemaker Cemetery
Bethesda, Montgomery County, Maryland

Contributed by Frieda Klopfenstein, Feb 24, 2002 [klopfensteinf@msn.com]. Total records = 8.

It is just north of Western Avenue (Washington, D.C. line) and the nearest intersection is Allan and Jamestown Road, in Bethesda MD.

The cemetery is located off of a grass alley, not on any street front. It is enclosed by a wrought iron fence and the gate has the word "Shoemaker" embedded as part of it.

None of the markers is located in place - all were propped against the fence. The base locations for the markers were still in place, but the markers had been removed from them.

I walked and transcribed this very small cemetery on 2 Feb 2002. It appeared there could have been more burials here, but I recorded all the stones, including the footstones (also propped against the fence). Broken stones not readable
