Somerset Cemeteries Project


Located on Backbone Road in the Princess Anne District and shown as the "Mrs. Pullett" residence on the 1876 maps. The cemetery is in an overgrown grove on the east side of Backbone Road, several hundred yards back in a field, just south of where modern-day Peggy Neck Road terminates. This cemetery was transcribed on New Years Day 1999 by our dependable cemetery transcribing pal, Mike Hitch.
