|RAINSFORD ISLAND CEMETERY - BOSTON HARBOR 2-12-2014|
Currently posting 1850 - 1890 searching for
Civil War Soldiers. Burial information indicates sad and tragic place.

CATHOLIC MOUNT AUBURN - UPDATE 8-20-2014
MANY EARLY CAMBRIDGE DEATHS NOTED ON CEMETERY RECORDS DO NOT NAME A SPECIFIC FIRST NAME.IN SOME INSTANCES THEY MAY REPRESENT THE LOT PURCHASE AND NOT A BURIAL. I AM REVIEWING THOSE DEATHS TO CAMBRIDGE DEATH RECORDS & ADDING THEM TO FINDAGRAVE
Headstones are completed.
April 1854- June 30, 1882, compared to cemetery records and Ancestry.com death records. ****Also partial records July 1, 1882 - December 31, 1884. Missing June 1885.
There are many name errors on the cemetery records.
This is the final review and I am adding maiden names to Findagrave.com as I find them.
So far the municipal burial records for Catholic Mount Auburn are noted as:
Watertown, R C Cemetery Watertown, Mount Auburn, Cambridge, Calvary and a few as Dorchester
****May 1882 to December 1885 records have not been done. The Catholic Archives does not have them, however I have not checked with the Catholic Cemetery Association. That will be done at the end of this project.
I also have a list of 91 Civil War Veterans buried or memorialized. Please email if you want that list.
I am happy to transfer names.

Thank you for the transfer of of the memorial you created for this Civil War soldier of The Irish Brigade.
Thank you also for the tremendous work you've done in finding the 'lost' graves of others. You're a valuable contributor to the historical and geneogical record.
Thank you so much for the photo of the O'Brien lot. I truly appreciate your time.

I thought I was fairly sure (but not totally sure) that the person in this grave was my G-G-G grandmother, Julia Flynn Shanahan. How did you determine that her maiden name was Murray?

According to the MA Death Index: He died in 1909
born 1847 in Canada.
I wanted you to know that what you told be about David Splain be buried in the Fenton lot led me to look for his death certificate at the NEHGS. The vol and page they gave me was incorrect so I looked up one of the people on that page and it led me to the same page, different address. I emailed the NEHGS about the mistake I found and they emailed me back that they researched the problem and found the right page. They emailed it to me besides correcting it on their site.
So, what you told me solved another problem, just think I am only one person amongst the many that you have helped.
So how many problem have you really solved?

I couldn't believe how fast you responded to my email. Thank you for the transfers and "all the work" you have given me looking for the rest of the people buried in that lot. How many are buried there anyway? It would be nice if there was a plot plan for the lot, but I guess that would be too easy. If I get stuck you may be hearing from me again. If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.
