|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Cemetery for St. Paul's Roman Catholic Church of Ellicott City is located on the Frederick Turnpike, MD Route 144, 1 mile west of town. It is easily located by finding the Mile Marker 11, on the north side of 144, and then looking across the road to the hillside about 100 yards south of the road. The burial grounds were purchased in 2 separate transactions, 1841 and 1857, and received burials as recently as 1968. The cemetery fell into disrepair and was soon grown over with heavy brush and large trees. Recently, the cemetery has been cleared of brush and dead trees but there remains much work to be done to properly honor the dead buried there.
The burials listed here, for now, represent ONLY those with stones to mark their interment. The only exception being the burials of the 5 Christian Brothers which were noted in a book on St. Pauls written in 1910 and not listed elsewhere. There are other burials listed in a book of interments at the church but it has to be edited prior to submission.
