Apparently there is some form of cemetery on the back part of our property. It probably dates from 80+ years ago when this was all farmland ...

Possibly a family plot. Somebody surely has a record of it.

That is my thinking ... I know that in the early 1900's there was a family farm around 200 acres that covered our neighborhood, and 2 or 3 others owned by the Davidson family (now called Davidsonville).

We own 6 acres of which about 2 acres is really developed / landscaped and house ... the other 4 is pretty wooded and I have a ravine and stream. I had previously found the foundation / partial stone wall of an older structure and I suspect the 2 tombstones I found while cutting a path to get to the watershed are some type of family plot. There are some families in the area that have been here for several generations, will be asking around.

I sent an email to the local historical society to see if they had any info or interest in it.

The Maryland Historical Society confirmed it is from a family that used to live in the area ... there used to be a house at the back of our property that burned down in 1917 ... this is from then and at least 2 generations back ...

Is it a pokestop or gym? It would be like private and place where only you could get to so it would be like the strongest gym ever.

Interesting...do you plan to do anything with it?

My daughter's house has a small cemetery just beyond her fence...she didn't even know it was there. We peeked over the fence one day and there is was in between a corner of four houses...dating back to the civil war. Can't recall if it were civil war soldiers, but she is in TN where there was a battle, so it's possible...it's not on her property though.

Curious...are you really creeped out by it?

Probably won't do anything with it, am not really sure how many plots are out there. It is so far back that we really don't go back there (total property is 6.15 acres shaped like a slice of pie ... This is all the way back).

Not overly creeped out ... But probably would be if a dog came trotting up from back there with a femur in its mouth.
