A visit to the Saint Mary's Roman Catholic (RC) Cemetery ...



Introduction ...

Since our focus is on geography, we don't have burial or interment information. Nor do we have any contact information for the St. Mary's RC Cemetery. For information of that nature, we suggest the Find-A-Grave <1> website: The St. Mary's RC Cemetery (FG ID #2335436)

Note: We have organized the cemeteries in our Gazetteer based on a problem that we had while working on our own genealogy. Without specifying the cemeteries involved, we found an ancestor that we believed to have been buried in one cemetery was actually buried elsewhere.

We discovered that his burial had been refused at the last moment and the family had scrambled to make new arrangements. By looking at nearby cemeteries, the surrounding communities and in newspapers of the period, we were finally able to locate his burial site.

Should you find yourself in the same situation, we hope that our Gazetteer helps you discover your lost ancestor.

    <4>If we found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
    <5>While we have an extensive database of cemeteries (with over 200,000 entries), you can be assured that it's not complete and our list will be missing cemeteries.
    <6>To help visualize the location of the cemetery, we've drawn a straight line between the communities of Gores Landing and Centreton. The cemetery can be found near that line and roughly halfway between the two communities. Remember that this is just an approximate location.
