Search Link-Creager Cemetery:

This is an old family cemetery. It is located on Daysville Road between Walkersville and Libertytown, at Cabbage Run. Cabbage Run is a large stream running through Frederick County.

The information is from a 1956 gravewalkers list by Mr. Millard Millburn RICE of Walkersville, Maryland. His list has 14 names. Rice was a noted and respected genealogist and historian of the Frederick County, Maryland, area.

In the book NAMES IN STONE: 75,000 Cemetery Inscriptions from Frederick County, Maryland, Volume 1, copyright 1966 by Jacob Mehrling HOLDCRAFT, the cemetery abbreviation is "Daysv. Link 75." The fullname is listed as Link-Creager Family Cemetery, with the location as "Daysville" in reference to Daysville Road. The description is "south of Daysville Road, on hill behind barn at Cabbage Run." The book reports that there were 14 names found in 1956, indicating that Holdcraft's information was based on Rice's 1956 work.

Holdcraft's book includes a handdrawn map of the area, on which this cemetery is #75.

A graver who visited the cemetery reported in June 2002, "When I was there, the tenants of the farm stated there was a group that visited a short time ago, and are looking into restoring the cemetery. It is in pretty bad shape, in the middle of a cow run, in the woods, but it was blocked off by barbed wire fence."
