Oella Cemetery

Some Inscriptions from the Old Union Manufacturing Works Cemetery in Oella

Here are some inscriptions that are from the now abandoned cemetery located on Rest Avenue off Westchester Avenue in Oella, Baltimore County, MD. This cemetery was orginially maintained for the workers of the Union Manufacturing Company (Union Works) of Oella, MD. Since 1998, there has been some clearing of this hillside site, but most all gravestones have fallen and been covered with dense undergrowth. There have been no burials since 1943. A set of inscriptions for this cemeterty appeared in the Maryland Genealogical Bulletin of Winter 1979, Vol 20. # 1, however; according to the submitter of this data, the article did not include all the burials she has documented there and included below.
