|UPDATE 3-12-2013 |
The spreadsheet for the names of those recorded as buried is complete. There are a bit less than 22,000 people Heavy editing remains, which I shall do as I add new names to Findagrave.com
I am going to add beginning at Grave #1 Range 1 East.
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 have taken a break from uploading to Findagrave as I am working on placing the data on a spreadsheet. That will enable me to answer requests for burial locations. I have 1859 - 1878 to complete. I shall begin uploading by the middle of February.
I have obtained, from a generous researcher, a spreadsheet of lots purchased.
It now appears that there are 21,000+ burials.
Today, at the Archdiocese, I obtained the records of burials from 1854 to 1882. There is a gap from 1883 to 1884.
I intend to transfer that information to an Excel Spreadsheet and begin working with the data to post to Findagrave.com In the meantime I shall attempt to answer any questions about that period.
Catholic Mount Auburn Cemetery, Watertown, MA.
The vast majority of headstones have been posted. Less than 100 require further work.
6,000+ records of burials from 1885 have been uploaded and the other 3,000+ names, before 1885, were obtained from headstones.
I shall review my uploads for errors and duplicates. Please advise of any corrections to be made.
The Archdiocese's archive at Braintree has the record of burials before 1885 and it is my intention to add those names and locations this winter. I also have a list of 76 Civil War Veterans buried or memorialized. Please email if you want that list.
I am happy to transfer names.

I am trying to determine if this might be Nancy Cronin instead. The memorial page notes that the burial location is not on the record.
I wonder how accurate the record is that you were provided with?
Can you determine if perhaps this might be Nancy Cronin, born 1805 and died APRIL 11, 1889? Her death record states that she was buried in Watertown. Is there perhaps another name (perhaps the owner of the lot) on the record that you reviewed?
I am NOT suggesting you have made a mistake at all. I am just wondering if the record is accurate.
Thanks for all you have done. Your work is incredible.
Do you visit the cemetery often? There is a marker that I can't read and I wonder if you might be able to decipher it for me?
Thanks for your time.

Thanks very much for the transfer.
I have begun to update the information.
You are doing great work on Catholic Mount Auburn Cemetery.

Bill, Thank you for transferring Francis J Walsh to me & for asking whom else I might be looking for.
I haven't been able to locate his parents: David H & Josephine (nee: O'Brien) Walsh. She died before the 1940 US Census & he after; both were born in late 1860's. If you should run across them I would so appreciate finally being able to break that brick wall down.
Again thank you for taking the time to place these memorials here for us all. Lori
