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

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.
