HARRIS - OVERTON FAMILY GRAVEYARD

This little graveyard was transcribed by Mike Hitch during an August, 1998 visit to the Mt. Vernon area. Mike ventured down Harrison Landing Road towards the Wicomico River and saw, off in the field to his left, two old leaning tombstones. They were in a small grove of mature tress that is now being used as a cow pasture. To get to the stones, it is necessary to walk back into the field about 200 feet. These stones sit only about 100 feet from the river. On the 1876 maps, they are on the property of Mrs. Mary E. Overton in Hungary Neck District (District 5) of Somerset Co. next to the residence of Wm. A.D. Bounds. The property is just west of and on the opposite side of the river from Whitehaven. Thanks, once again, Mike, for providing this information!
