Loudon Park Cemetery, the 139-year-old resting place of H. L. Mencken, and more than 200,000 other Baltimoreans, is passing from local control and becoming part of a national chain.Stewart Enterprises Inc., a New Orleans-based company that describes itself as "the third-largest provider of cemetery and funeral home services in the United States," announced yesterday that it has signed a letter of intent to buy the historic burial ground, along with Druid Ridge Cemetery in Pikesville. Both are owned by the Primrose family, which founded Loudon Park in 1853 and acquired the 96-year-old Druid Ridge in 1913.
