In January, the Carrollton Manor Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution celebrated the publication of The Forgotten: The Middletown African Methodist Episcopal Cemetery. The result of 17 months of research, this volume provides source material on the individuals located in a largely undocumented burial ground. The Forgotten can be used for genealogy research, to track a community’s history, and to develop a deeper understanding of a segment of Frederick County’s African-American population.
