Stackhouse Family Cemetery, Howard County

Private cemetery, National Road, Howard County, Maryland
This seemingly abandoned cemetery sits on the old National Road, two and a half miles west of Lisbon, in Howard County, Maryland. Last names include Stackhouse, Webb, Owings, Hood, Delawder, Burdette and others. Most are from the middle third of the 19th century, though I noticed some as recent as the second quarter of the 20th century.

Heyr Leyeth...
One of the more curious stones was this one, which appears to be carved from slate. I could not make out the inscription.

The cemetery is on the right side of the road, when traveling west. More photographs of the site can be found over on my Flickr account, in the set Stackhouse Family Cemetery.
