Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a law enforcement officer in Baltimore County, Maryland. I have been involved in documenting historic and abandoned cemeteries, with hopes to bring awareness to the plight that many of these sacred grounds are in danger of vandalism and destruction. I a working on my family tree, and have utilized the wording on many headstones tom add to my database.

I am an independent videographer, and hope to make a documentary of Maryland's disappearing family cemeteries. I hope to network with others to help preserve these hallowed grounds.

Westview Memorial Park
I have recently viewed your videos of this cemetery and would like to chat with you. I have an Uncle who is buried there and am interested in finding his grave. I would also like to do what I can to see if we can get this cemetery cleaned up by the state. I do not live in Maryland and only recently found out my Uncle's life history. Please let me know how I can contact you personally.

Spring Grove State Hospital

I seen that you had added names and photos for the Spring Grove State Hospital. I was wondering if you seen a Laura Margaret Sowers. She was admitted to the hospital in 1941. She was buried in the cemetery on 21 Jan 1942. She was married to Walter Carroll but she was admitted to the hospital under her maiden name. Any information would be helpful.

Thank You,
Katie Sowers

RE: Peerce Cemetery.
Directions to Peerce/Pierce Cemetery. From 695 take Dulaney Valley Road headed outside of the beltway toward Jarrettsville Pike. Stay on Dulaney Valley Rd (straight) when the Pike splits off to the left after the bridge. Loch Raven Reservoir will be on your right. You go 1-3 miles and Dulaney Valley makes a sharp 90 degree turn. There's a building/restaurant/somethinglikethat on the corner. There's some trees on the right and then it opens up some. The cemetery is on the right back off the road just after it opens up past the trees. I parked by the trees and walked up there. It's an area where the high voltage power lines run. If you need more specific info than that let me know. Thanks for what you do. I just happened to spot it one day coming from the other way as I was on my way to check out The Eagle's Nest on Jarrettsville Pike. The Eagle's Nest (historic) was built by Thomas Marsh in the 1700s, his son Joshua took ownership after his death. I descend from his daughter Elizabeth who married Joseph Winks. Peerce was in the area in the late 1700s. I remember running across his name looking at the tax rolls for that area (Valley of Jehosophat, later named Dulaney Valley). The census area for that location is Balto County Ward 2. I'd have to double check my notes to get the Hundreds names if you need them. Anyway, from the looks of it and the location of the power lines, it looks like the cemetery property most likely falls under the power company. If not, it's mainly wooded beyond the cemetery and I have no idea who owns it.
