There are also Peatross graves in the Wortham/Peatross graveyard behind The
Grove which is located in the very southern tip of Caroline County. This is
a private home and the cemetery is included in Herbert Collins list of
private cemeteries. A Peatross chart appears below (mostly a compilation
from Wingfield's book rather than original research).
