In the town of Sharpsburg, go along Highway 34 until you reach the intersection of Mechanic Street, turn on Mechanic and go north 1 block and then turn west on West Chapline Road and go west 1/2 block. The cemetery is on the south side of the road.
This is a very old cemetery. The church was formed in 1774 and the cemetery shortly thereafter. The cemetery is in the middle of Sharpsburg. It has burials from German Immigrants dating back to the 1790's.
They used the cemetery until 1883 where the future burials were placed at the Mountain View cemetery east of town. Some of the headstones were very hard to read and someone or somebody put a pile of headstones in the middle of the cemetery so this one was kind of hard to read. It is a shame that they threw those headstones in a pile.
This is from my first walk through on Dec 7 2002. I hope to be going back as soon as the weather gets better to see if there might be stones that I missed.
