A 1773 Christopher Family Cemetery. 50 acres of land was purchased by John Christopher in 1773. The cemetery is located under the tree tops with the entrance at the street's dead ending of the 3100 blk. of Royston Ave. Baltimore MD 21214 which was Baltimore County until 1918 when Baltimore City annexed the area surrounding it. Sold due to a family member dying and the unpaid taxes in 1964, the Cemetery is still threatened today in 2018 by a developer wishing to build Royston Gardens Project, a housing development.
One footstone still exists above ground showing Sarah nee Read d. March 17, 1864; 44 years old and James H. Christopher d. October 14, 1899 aged 82. James was the grandson of John Christopher Sr. the original owner of property. Due to the age of the cemetery, many family members from 1700s and 1800s are presumed buried here.
