|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The cemetery is located on Church Street in the village of Silver Springs, NY Tax map ID #122.20-1-34.1. Sunday, August 19, 1928 the St. Mary's Cemetery was solemnly blessed by Father Peter Berkery of Buffalo who was selected and delegated to perform this episcopal act. He is the son of the late Berkerys of Silver Springs and the land holds many recollections of his boyhood days. The land was purchased from the heirs of John E. Lowing on August 18, 1892. King, Stenshorn (aka Stanchorn), Donlon, McQuire, Moylon, O'Brien, Fitzgibbons, McGurren and Baker were among the first lot owners in the four acre cemetery. Many more names can be found being added to this well kept cemetery.
