|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Old St. Joseph's Cemetery is located at the site of the first St. Joseph's Church and dates from the 18th century. It is located on Busy Corner Road, Morganza, near the juction of that road with MD Route 5. The current (1860) St. Joseph's Church is located at the crest of the hill, a few hundred yards to the north of this site. Old St. Joseph's was used until around World War II and then abandoned. It grew up into a forest. In the late 1980's, the cemetery was cleared and restored as the result of the efforts of a descendant of an old St. Joseph's family and a tremendous outpouring of community support. The cemetery is now well marked and maintained. The cemetery was used by members of both St. Joseph's and Immaculate Conception parishes. Address and telephone numbers are those of St. Joseph's Church.
