This county is locally pronounced "why COM ick koh", although you will hear people on the western side of the Bay say "wi COMB ick koh" with the first syllable as in "with".

I came into Parsonsburg from the south, off of U.S. 50, so I leave that part as an exercise for the reader.

The point in the cemetery seemed obvious and was near the small fenced in area close to the church building. I say this because the names "Smith" and "Wimbrow" are fairly common here.

To get to the point north of town, the road desired is only signed as Parsonsburg Road. Otherwise, you should be good to go. The briars near the HP have come in with a vengeance, so long pants would be considered a must. Did not look for the grave site to the north because I was not having a particularly good time right then.

As for the manmade point near Hebron, it is at the dump (OK, the Wicomico Regional Landfill for those of us who are not dinosaurs). Per the folks in the office, it was started in the 50's or 60's (they couldn't remember exactly) and is currently 135 feet above sea level. I noted this point but otherwise ignored it.
