DAUGHERTY FAMILY GRAVEYARD

Submitted by Edward Bloxom Daugherty III

This graveyard is located about 100 yards northeast of Daughertytown Road, north of Crisfield, MD. It is on private property currently owned by Steve Cullen. It can be seen from the road by looking in a northeast direction for a cedar tree and holly tree after making the first hard right turn in the road. The vegetation has been kept under control since the mid 1990ís, prior to when it became an overgrown jungle which had been totally abandoned. Some graves were damaged many years ago by machinery used to maintain the ditch next to it. Some of the headstones have been re-erected, and efforts are underway to restore as much of it as possible. The first and third rows of graves are listed in order from south to north, and the center row is listed north to south. (The notes in parenthesis are relationships, and are not inscribed on the grave stones).

Annie E. BLAIR, wife of L. W. BLAIR, b. Oct 9, 1860, d. Feb 15, 1889
   Day after day we saw her fade
   And gently pass away
   And often in our hearts we prayed
   That she might longer stay
   Farewell, farewell our Annie dear
   Our life is sad without thee here
   Oh may we meet in heaven above
   Where all is joy and peace and love

   And though the body molders here,
   The soul is safe in heaven.
