Trinity Lutheran-Smithsburg


We are looking for details on the cemetery.  Any information you can provide will be helpful. 


We visited the cemetery in June, 2015.  The cemetery is well maintained and has many older stones.  Some of the stones were unreadable, but we did photograph.  It is a historical cemetery in that we found two Civil War fatalities among those buried there.  Many of the stones were early 1800s. 
The transcriptions below include those found in 'History of Western Maryland' by Thomas Scharf.  Those marked with an (*) were from his listing, however, we could not find the memorials  We did find many of those listed in his book.

The cemetery is located on the same grounds as the church.

To see the photographs taken during our visit, click here.

Our transcriptions.  We try the best we can to be as accurate as possible.  If you have a name or photo to add, please send it to germanmarylanders@gmail.com.
