Bethesda, Montgomery County, Maryland
Contributed by Frieda Klopfenstein, Feb 24, 2002 [firstname.lastname@example.org].
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).
