According to the Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots
Josiah Beall, son of John and Verlinda Magruder Beall, is buried in the "Boxwood Lodge Cemetery" located on the old Elisha Beall home called Boxwood Lodge. However, the cemetery apparently has gone to ruin and the new name is called Old Urbana Cemetery which is next to an old Episcopal Church ruin which is only partly standing.
Josiah Beall died before the revolutionary war began, but his claim to fame was that he was one of the 12 justices of Frederick County, MD who repudiated the Stamp Tax, the first judicial official nullification of English rule in 1765. He was very active in the community as a planter, sheriff, constable, Justice and Coroner.
Josiah was born in 1715 to John and Verlinda Magruder Beall of Prince George's. He was widowed and his wife has not yet been documented, but believed to be Mary/Maezah.
