The Search for Those that are Lost or Forgotten.

This site is dedicated to all the lost souls of Dorchester County, Maryland. My family has been living here for well over 300 years and sadly finding their final resting places has been more of a challenge than I originally thought. In addition to the numerous unmarked family plots scattered across the county, there are also many locations that are now lost to time and tide.

Erosion has wiped away many of the smaller plots resting on creeks, branches, or river banks. Those on many of the smaller islands, the most famous of these is the now sunken Holland Island, are also slowly being washed away over the years. It is my goal to locate as many of these plots as possible and to map them, so that even if we gradually lose the fight with the Bay, we will at least be able to see where these souls were once laid to rest.
