To reach cemetery from Pikesville take MD Route 140 (Reisterstown
Road) northwest. This is northwest of I-695 (exit 20). From the
intersection with I-695 it is .86mi, then right onto Stone Chapel
Lane, which leads to the cemetery.
This cemetery was established about 1919, by the Stone Chapel
Methodist Episcopal Church, with the first burial on Jan 01,
1920. The cemetery is on church property.
This cemetery is now owned and maintained by the Pleasant Hill
United Methodist Church, 10911 Reisterstown Rd., Owings Mills,
MD and is still active with 1-2 interments per year. We found
the cemetery in very good condition. It is kept mowed regularly
and there are only a few fallen stones.
The row designations begin in the southwest corner (left edge
of the parking lot) and work north and east. Rows 1 through
14 are at the left side of the front walk. Rows 15 through 23
are at the rear of the church and hall. Rows 24 through 30 are
at the right side of the front walk. The spaces do not necessarily
progress in a straight line, especially for family plots.
J. W. McGrain and I walked and read this cemetery in 1972,
and updated it in 2008 from tombstone inscriptions, sexton records,
previous transcriptions. This contains all existing and legible
stones and markers to this date.
