Boonsboro Cemetery is a non-profit organization operated by the Boonsboro Cemetery Association and is comprised of board members from Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church and Trinity Reformed Church (United Church of Christ), both of Boonsboro.

Cemetery History

In 1810, Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church and Trinity Reformed Church (Church of Christ) joined together to consecrate a church building called the Salem Church.  It was located on Potomac Street in Boonsboro and both congregations used the building for services and church activities. The land for the church came from the farm of the William Boone family, founders of Boonsborough.

At the time, the original cemetery was established behind the Salem Church, which includes the Boone family burial site.  This cemetery still exists today and is still maintained by the Boonsboro Cemetery Association, comprised of board members from both churches. 

The larger Boonsboro Cemetery, the subject of this article, was established by the same congregations a short distance away. It was to succeed the original cemetery.

In 1870, the congregations out-grew the facilities of Salem Church and both built a new church.  The Lutheran congregation sold its share in Salem and purchased property at 64 South Main Street.  The new Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church was dedicated in January 1871 and the Reformed Church constructed a new building on the site of the old Salem church.   

The Boonsboro Cemetery is located behind the current Lutheran church, on Cemetery Lane.

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.
