Pullett United Methodist Cemetery
Worcester County, Maryland
11904 Blueberry Road, Whaleyville, Maryland 21872
Lat: 38° 24' 17"N, Lon: 75° 18' 11"W
Contributed by Joshua Jenkins, Jan 04, 2008, last edited Dec 10, 2010 [firstname.lastname@example.org]. Total records = 142.
To reach the cemetery from the Whaleyville vicinity, take Sheppards Crossing Road N from 610 (Whaleyville Road), then make a right onto Blueberry Road in approximately 750 feet. Cemetery will be on right-hand side opposite church.
This cemetery is called Pullet Chapel Cemetery on the USGS map. It is also known as the Whaleysville Cemetery.
This is an AA cemetery and I found it in decent condition, however many stones/graves are unmarked, partially buried, broken/in disrepair.
Mr. Armstrong and his son spoke with me from across the way at the small church. He explained the church is not in use anymore but the burial grounds are.
When facing the cemetery, if you look to the left there is a small mound, which Mr. Armstrong explained was a small family cemetery for the Hammond family. It has been moved to a new cemetery in Pittsville, as Mr. Hammond did not like the location.
I walked and transcribed all existing headstones in this cemetery Dec, 2007.

** = f/s only found
*** = crude cement name marker on top of stone slab only "Hammo" part of surname shown but because of other graves/information on cemetery, I suspect and list as Hammond
**** = this was Mr. Armstrong's mother
*5 = wood cross with "Addie" in given name location. Rest of letters (potential middle name) and surname are all gone. No weathering spots on cross to indicate what the letters may have been. I searched the general area and found the letter "D" so this may be part of the surname. The funeral marker is completely blank.
