Originally named the Klinefelter Chapel Cemetery, it is located near the site of the old Klinefelter chapel. The chapel was built by Michael K. Seitz, William Klinefelter, Thomas Hunt and others in the community in 1860 as an United Evangelical Congregation. By 1930, the congregation had dwindled considerably and was dissolved. The chapel was donated to the town of Bonaire Maryland by Michael Seitz. Today only the cemetery remains. It is located on land originally farmed by John Klinefelter, who along with his nephew were veterans of the Revolutionary war and are listed on the York County Militia Rolls. Both John and his wife Margaret nee Gerberich are buried here. Michael K. Seitz purchased the land in 1842. Descendants of the Seitz Family own the cemetery today.
