|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Belair Mansion, located at 12207 Tulip Grove Drive in Bowie, Maryland, is owned by the City of Bowie and functions as a museum as does the nearby Belair Stable Museum.
Belair Mansion was built in 1745 as the Georgian plantation home of the Provincial Governor of Maryland, Samuel Ogle. The home became the home to another governor, Benjamin Ogle, Sr., of Maryland and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
At the edge of the mansion grounds is a small cemetery containing the grave of Benjamin Ogle II whose tombstone states that he died on April 4, 1845 while other sources have him dying in 1844 and some of his family.
