More Description

"Some of the most interesting monuments of bygone days have been found on out-of-the-way farms, and even where monuments are wanting, tradition often indicates the spot where some manor lord or Colonial Governor lies buried. The various stones, tablets, and traditions, still remaining serve to revive much of Maryland's primitive social life. Had it not been for the vandalism of some and the ignorance of others, much more might be found to supply missing links in county records, or to fill the gaps in carelessly kept parish registers....Isolated stones have been found in fields, by the roadside and beneath dwellings, also in use as doorsteps or as flagstones with the inscriptions turned under." This narrative account includes inscriptions appearing on tombstones in most of Maryland's counties and the District of Columbia. An index to full-names, places and subjects completes this work.
