The Isaac Shoemaker family burial ground is 1/6 acre in size. When the Isaac Shoemaker family farm (established in 1839) was sold in 1923 (T.L. Dawson and A.E. Shoemaker, L368, F203), the deed of sale excluded the burial plot of 1/7 acre along the Perry Boundary line (now the border of Brookdale North with Wohlshire). When the land was subdivided for development in 1938, Parcel A (Plat 905 Block 4) excluded 1/6 acre, for the 1/7 acre burial plot as well as the right of way for Murray Road along the southeast side of the burial ground, which served as its access route.

The family burial ground is a memorial of the historic 140-acre Shoemaker family farm, established in rural Montgomery County in 1839 by a Quaker, Isaac Shoemaker, bringing new agricultural methods to exhausted tobacco land. The land was farmed by the Shoemaker family until World War I. Ms. Nancy Shoemaker Werner has lived in Montgomery County nearly all of her life close to the cemetery and has made visits to the cemetery, usually once a year or more often, to visit the grave sites of her ancestors.
