Welcome to Rock Creek Cemetery

 

Welcome to Rock Creek Cemetery.  This site was designed to provide members of the Rock Creek United Methodist community with a place to remember loved ones that have passed away.  It is a place for stories and anecdotes about friends and family; it is a place to share and remember the rich cultural heritage of this area.  And finally, it is a place to ensure that these stories and anecdotes, memories and heritage are never lost.

What follows is a map and detailed listing of the people buried in Rock Creek Cemetery.  The map was graciously provided by Mr. Eldon Willing, Jr., a long time resident of Chance, Maryland.  This map has been broken down into smaller, more manageable pieces and then the graves labeled and numbered for easier recognition.  As much information as possible has been included from the gravestones and is listed in a corresponding page, one for each map.  We welcome any additional information you can provide about people buried in Rock Creek Cemetery.

To access the map, please follow the link below.  This will take you to a map of the entire cemetery.  From there, you can click on the area where your particular loved one is buried, and this will take you to a smaller, more detailed version of the large map.  From there, you can access a list of the people buried in that section and the information from their gravestones.  To add information, please contact Shirley Massey at <smassey01@comcast.net> with the information and the site will be updated. 

Enjoy the site!
