[ Jarrett Family Graveyard ]

This small family burial plot is on the west side of Waterfront Road (Lane) in Bivalve MD. The lane parallels the Nanticoke Road approximately 1/8 mile east of the river, and 150 yards north of Bivalve Wharf Road. The plot is unusual. It is atop a rectangular concrete base, framed by a cinder block "wall" approximately 10' x 12' and 15" high. The entire top is concreted over, and the tombstones are embedded in the concrete. Brush and shrubbery have been cleared since 1997 when it wasn't visible. It is now cared for and was recently mowed, probably by adjacent property owners. Recorded August 4, 1998 by Ralph Willing and Paul Willing.
