Old Detmold Cemetery – Lonaconing, MD
May 29, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Cleanup Day at the Old Detmold Cemetery. This is a secluded cemetery that hasn’t been cleaned in forever. We need:
- Weed Wackers
- Chainsaws, Fuel, and Bar Oil
- Work gloves
- 4-Wheel Drive truck
- and lots of help!
This is Memorial Day Weekend, and we will be honoring Revolutionary War Veteran Privet Samuel Jackson of the 3rd New Jersey Regiment, Continental Army (who is buried here).
We also need to attempt to establish the borders of the cemetery. This area will be strip mined likely in a few years. Borders need identified to protect the area during the mining process.
Please email me for directions, details, needs, and ways you can help!
