WIMBROW CEMETERY
Wango, Dennis District #6

GPS location: 38 18.147' N ~ 75 27.190' W

"This Cemetery", says submitter John P. Kelley, "is located on Bear Swamp Road, a dirt road that begins at the end of Johnson Road, in Wicomico County. It is located 5 tenths of a mile on the left side of the road. It is located in the edge of a new-planted wood and right on the edge of the road. It is surrounded by a cement post and metal pipe fence. It looks as though someone is occasionally taking care of it. I would rate it as being in fairly good shape with very little growth on it and that being small grass and weeds."

"Most of the tombstones are in great shape; some are very old and are lying on the ground. I tried to get all the information that I could from them. Almost all of the tombstones have verses written on them. I did not copy these due to the length of some of them. Some are very beautifully worded. Also, as you will notice, I could not get some of the information because of the condition of the older tombstones. Rubbings would probably get that information from them."

"I started at the front row, from the left hand side. I hope this will be of help to someone. These were listed on May 15, 2003." Thanks to Mr. Kelley for sharing this information!
