Zion Church & Cemetery, Urbana, MD

Click on this link for really interesting photos from before the church restoration.

Of interest: a small wooden peg utilized as some sort of marker. I rarely see wooden markers of any kind in the Mid-Atlantic region. I have no idea how old the wooden marker is, why it is so close to the larger headstone, or indeed if it is actually marking a burial.
[Maddy: note wooden marker]


  1. Are there any records that identify who is buried in Zion Cemetery (especially identifying those for whom markers have long since become part of the dust of history)?

    1. Hi there, I have never done research here. Have you tried contacting the church directly? Many of the older churches have their records on site (or at a trusted congregant's home). Good luck!!
