McCLESTER - EVANS FAMILY GRAVEYARD
Paul Willing writes, "This graveyard is on private property near the site of the former Waterview Hotel, in Waterview, MD. A neighboring farmer directed me to the site, after first phoning the owner to request permission for me to enter the property. The graves are in a raised ivy covered plot about 25 feet from the house. The plot was surrounded by a short picket fence. It was very nearly obliterated by the heavy growth of ivy, and the stones were difficult to see and hard to read. Unfortunately, allowing the continued growth of ivy is going to accelerate the deterioration of the site. Ivy is tenacious and destructive. It will grow into and through concrete, brick, mortar, wood, and eventually crack and destroy any of those materials."
