|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Beall-Sheriff family cemetery was the burial ground for members of the Beall, Sheriff, Van Horn and McCormick families. It was located in the Benning/Anacostia area which originally was part of Maryland. There were three gravestones remaining in 1916 when an article appeared in the Washington Star regarding burials in the cemetery. One of those gravestones was for Eliza Van Horn McCormick who was disinterred and re-buried at Historic Congressional Cemetery with her children.
