Cemetery notes and/or description:
White Marsh is as close to a "birthplace" that the Roman Catholic Church in the United States has. R. C. Church in the new U. S. was organized here in the period 1783/1789. Jesuit priests & others worked "long-distance" with the Vatican in this organization - now the American church was free to operate "in the open." John Caroll, S. J. elected here in 1789 to be 1st Bishop; approved by Pope Pius VI. Baltimore Diocese covered the entire United States at the time. White Marsh {plantation}was est. in 1741 & was the 4th of the Jesuit Residences in Southern Maryland.
