|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This Worthington family burying ground is located on the old Worthington place on Kindler Road south of Rte 32 (east of Rte 29) in the 6th (Guilford) District of Howard County. The plot, on the edge of a woods several hundred feet behind the house, a hundred years ago contained five generations of Worthingtons. Presently there are many sunken graves and but few headstones remain. The house, of which the oldest stone section - covered with a mellowed pink plaster - dates back to the early 1700's, has undergone numerous changes and has been known variously as 'White Hall', 'Glenburnie', and 'Iris Hill'. In 1959 it is the home of Mr & Mrs Clifford F Shaw and has been rechristened 'Worthington's Quarter', a name which may have been used early in its history.
