Christ's Church at Cavetown

We visited the church and cemetery on June 13, 2015.  The cemetery is well maintained and has several old stones.  The transcription of the memorials photographed are below.  If you have any information or a memorial you would wish to add, please send it to germanmarylanders@gmail.com.

There are a few, marked with (*) where we do not have the photo.  We were unable to locate the stones.  The names were taken from Thomas Scharf's History of Western Maryland.
