COX - MUIR FAMILY GRAVEYARD

The original transcription of this graveyard used to be accessible on a web site called "Backeast.com". However, that site, and the transcription, disappeared from the internet years ago. In the interest of making the data once again available to researchers, I am posting the information under the auspices of the Somerset Cemeteries Project. What follows is a paraphrasing of the original web page from backeast.com:

This is located on Nevitte Muir Road in Upper Fairmont. For many years Nevitte Muir has been caring for this family graveyard without assistance from others. Now he is getting old and needs help with the care of this wonderful historic graveyard in Maryland's Eastern Shore.
