Representatives of the Gen. Mordecai Gist Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution first transcribed this burial ground on the Lockard Farm, sometime before March 1936. [March 1936 Report of the Genealogical Records Committee, Maryland State Society, Daughters of the American Revolution compiled by Edna McClatchy Pearce, series 1, vol. 22, p. 50 Beaver / Bowman] The cemetery was described as formerly the Beaver Burying Ground containing the remains of a Revolutionary soldier, Martin Beaver. Later, George Horvath, Jr. transcribed 3 headstones (1978) and Harold J. Robertson transcribed 9 stones (1985). The Jan 2005 transcription by Robert M. Barnes identifies headstones skipped by the DAR as well as correcting minor problems within that transcription. The size of the unplowed area / trees in this field indicate many other unmarked graves probably exist. Two rough-hewn stones in the ground contain no writing, but could be additional headstones. Most headstones now are out of the ground, many leaning against trees.
