|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
In 1882 the Catholic Church bought an acre of ground at 401 South Zaragosa Road for the sum of $15.00 to start a cemetery.
The seven section that make up the Old Gardens are Saint Joseph, Our Lady of Mt Carmel, Out Lady of Sorrows, St Anthony, Immaculate Heart of Mary, Our Lady of Fatima, and Our Lady of Divine Grace.
6/14: Years ago Ysleta Cemetery was the original name and is now considered the 'old' section of the cemetery. Burial records were kept at the church. After a church fire, all the records were destroyed for this section and no burials are no longer done in the 'old' section. In 1956, the new section, separated by a rock wall, was established where burials continue to this day. Mount Carmel Cemetery Consultant Monica indicated that Mount Carmel IS the correct name for the 2 part cemetery and Ysleta is NOT in the name.
