Providence United Methodist Cemetery
Georgetown, Sussex County, Delaware

Shortly Rd (Rd 431) in Georgetown, DE

Lat: 38 38' 04"N, Lon: 75 23' 14"W

Contributed by Audra Hart, Jul 31, 2010, last edited Aug 03, 2010 [audramhart@gmail.com]. Total records = 28.

To reach this cemetery, in Georgetown exit the circle onto South Bedford Street (US 9 Truck) 2.0 miles cross US Rte 113 onto Shortly Road (Rte 431) proceed straight south on Shortly Road for 2.1 miles. The cemetery is on left side of the road beside the church.

Plaque SC 130 in the cemetery states this cemetery was registered in the Delaware Public Archives in 2004 as a Deleware Historic Place.

This cemetery is owned and well maintained by the Providence United Methodist Church. The cemetery is on the church property. All stones are legible and most are in very good condition.

I added information from the Hudson and Tatnall Cemetery Records of Sussex County, Delaware in cases where it was not on the stones.

I walked and read this cemetery on Jun 11, 2010. This transcription includes all existing and legible stones and markers at that time.
