Carmelite Cemetery (Defunct)
Charles County
Maryland  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
In 1790, the Mount Carmel Monastery was founded by Carmelite Nuns. In 1831 the Nuns left Charles County and went to Baltimore, but they returned to the Monestary in 1976. The first nun died in 1796, and eleven others followed her. When the nuns moved to Baltimore, ten of these were disinterred and eventually reburied at Bonnie Brae Cemetery in that city. The last two nuns who had died could not be moved, and are still here somewhere. The last private owner of the property refused to divulge the whereabouts of the graves, fearing that they would be disturbed.

The Monastery is located adjacent to the College of Southern Maryland at:
