|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This cemetery was built in large measure by my wife's ancestor, Dominick Mattingly, who along with Meshack Browning and William Browning were selected to collect donations to build this church in what was called Johnstown, MD, about 1850. St. James Church was dedicated in 1853 under the passtorate of Rev. Wm. Lambert. In 1890, the "present" church was built under the pastorate of Romanus Mattingly. The name was changed from St. James to St. Dominic, the patron saint of Dominick Mattingly, who was a zealous Catholic. The cemetery contains the graves of Meshack Browning, D. J. Mattingly, and many of their families.
