Also known as Basil Waters Cemetery.

Basil Waters, 1761-1844, inherited a 490-acre estate from his father, William Waters, of Brookeville, Maryland, and named the farm Pleasant Fields, in the area now known as Germantown.

Basil's brothers, Zacariah and William, were also given land and established farms and homes nearby. A fourth brother, Ignatius, inherited the family home, Belmont, in Brookeville. Although many descendants of the Waters brothers still live in this area, only Basil's house, Pleasant Fields, still stands.

Here you will find the remains of the Waters family who lived in the house, "Pleasant Fields", on Milestone Manor Lane.

The Waters House was built in three parts, the oldest dating to 1798. Basil Waters (1761-1844), who built the small brick section of the house and named the farm Pleasant Fields, had inherited 200 acres of land (in the area now known as Germantown) from his father, William Waters, of Brookeville, Maryland. Basil's brothers, Zacariah, and William were also given land and established farms and homes nearby. A fourth brother, Ignatius, inherited the family home, Belmont, in Brookeville. Although many descendants of the Waters brothers still live in this area, only Basil's house, Pleasant Fields, still stands.
