Woodlawn Cemetery

Thanks to the efforts of Joseph Mckenzie (formerly of Cumberland), and Byron Schulten of Cumberland, a vast amount of information pertaining to Cumberland's Woodlawn Cemetery is now located on the historical website, Find A Grave. This is the second Allegany County African American cemetery Joseph and Byron have taken the time to research and catalog, the first being Cumberland's historic Sumner Cemetery. Woodlawn was established some years ago in large measure due to Sumner Cemetery being almost filled.

This website, again through the efforts of Joe and Byron, identifies 211 gravesites within Woodlawn Cemetery. This not only includes the names, birth and death dates where known, but in many cases photographs of the tombstones and to the extent possible the obituaries and dates as they actually appeared in the Cumberland newspapers of that era.
