Missing Records, Baptist Cemetery in Eldersburg, Maryland

If you have family members buried in an abandoned cemetery in Eldersburg, Maryland, you may have important information!  200 years ago a Baptist minister named Edward Choate started a church there.  Over a period of 40 years there were at least a couple dozen burials in the church yard.  Then the church died.  In 1910 it became a house.  Over the next century the tombstones weathered, were broken up, or taken away.  I have friends who are looking to buy the house and want to know what became of the cemetery and the people in it.  I found a genealogy of the Choates -- see link for Edward and his ancestors -- and created a category page for the cemetery containing everything I've been able to find on it.  (http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Patapsco_Baptist_Church_Cemetery%2C_Eldersburg%2C_Maryland).   If there's any chance you can connect your family to this cemetery, and would add to the record, it would be most appreciated.
