Sotheron Cemetery
Golden Beach, Saint Mary County, Maryland

29750 Allen Street, Golden Beach MD

Contributed by Anne Braun, Sep 09, 2005 [annieb1961@comcast.net]. Total records = 8.

In Charlotte Hall, from the intersection of Highway 5 and Golden Beach Road, go on Golden Beach Road for 4.5 miles until you get to Allen Street. Turn on Allen Street and go 1 block south and turn and go .5 block east. The cemetery is on the north side of the road with a brick wall around it.

This is a well kept, very old family cemetery. The cemetery was started around 1675 by the Sotheron Family. It appears it has not been used for burials since about 1835.

There are 6-8 indentions in the ground, indicating of unmarked burials that are there. A few of the headstones were well worn and very hard to read.

I walked this cemetery on Jul 11, 2005.

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.
