Judge John J. Dobler; Mayfield, Balto

Please see below in which Judge Dobler's name is mentioned. Any help would be appreciated.

After researching the Erdman’s of Baltimore for the past 10 yrs., I am desperately looking for any information on the family cemetery, which was, once located in the Harford Rd.-Montebello area of what is now Baltimore City. At one time I had recorded an address of 2231 Pelham Ave of where I believed the cemetery might have been located. Walking the neighborhood and using maps determined this. Upon closer inspection, I believe it could have been on the southwest side of the intersection of Kentucky and Norman Avenues. This is about two blocks east of Harford Road in the Mayfield neighborhood.

In an article about the Mayfield community, it states, “The neighborhood was mostly farmland, except for Erdman Cemetery. Most of it was owned by Judge Dobler, Charles Knox and Theresa Skirven.”

It is not known how early the cemetery was established, but re-interments, many of them to Druid Ridge Cemetery, occurred about 1912-1920 when the area was being developed. According to maps I have dated 1896 and 1906, owner properties around the cemetery at that time were: D.C. Erdman, G.H. Erdman and A. Reuter.

At this time, I would give a body part if there might be a burial register in existence of this family cemetery. If this sounds familiar to anyone and it hasn’t been thrown out, please check your basements and attics. This would be a rare find. I appreciate any help or information anyone has.
