Bethel Lutheran Cemetery
Frederick County, Maryland

9664 Opossumtown Pike
Frederick, MD 21702
301-694-8280

Lat: 39° 30' 01"N, Lon: 77° 26' 30"W

Contributed by Anne Braun, Jan 08, 2004, updated Mar 13, 2004 [annieb1961@comcast.net]. Total records = 98.

From, US Highway 15, take the Rosemont Exit and turn west on Rosemont Avenue and drive 5 miles north/northwest. Rosemont Avenue turns into Yellow Springs Road and from there you go until you reach Bethel Road. Turn on to Bethel road and go north about 1 1/2 miles. The cemetery is on the southeast corner of the intersection of Bethel Road and Oppossumtown Pike.

This is an old church cemetery which had it's first burial in 1819. The last burial took place in 1926. It is owned and maintained by Bethel Lutheran Church. They do not use it for burials anymore, however it is well taken care of.

The name of this area at that time was Charlesville. This cemetery was first recorded for the records in 1951. About 30 percent of the headstones are not there.

I compared my findings with the "Name in Stone" book Vol 5, pub. in 1966, by Jacob Holdcraft.

I visited the cemetery on Nov 20, 2003, a work in progress.
