RAINSFORD ISLAND CEMETERY - BOSTON HARBOR 2-20-2014

Burials have been posted from 1850 - 1896 (end of burial activity). Currently searching for Civil War Soldiers. Burial information indicates sad and tragic place.

GALLOPS ISLAND CEMETERY BOSTON HARBOR 7-3-2014 JAN 1871 -MARCH 31, 1873 JAN 1902 - MARCH 1902

CATHOLIC MOUNT AUBURN - UPDATE 6-19-2016

145 Civil War Veterans found, although there may be many more due to common names and occupation noted as "Laborer"

Completed adding available newspaper information for cause of death: 26 homicide, 698 accidents and 23 suicides.

Many burials at Catholic Mount Auburn are misidentified on the City/Town death records as being buried at other cemeteries. All area cemeteries are mentioned. The Mount Auburn Cemetery (noted at Cambridge) is incorrectly noted many times.

1854 - December 31, 1920 Edited using death certificates. Online death records end at 1920.

MISSING RECORDS: I HAVE VERFIED WITH THE CATHOLIC CEMETERY ASSOCIATION AND SEEN FOR MYSELF THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE THEM.
I ADDED BURIALS BY A REVIEW OF THE DEATH RECORDS OF BOSTON, CAMBRIDGE, SOMERVILLE, WATERTOWN, BELMONT, CHELSEA. --

RE: Fife lot, Cath Mount Auburn
Thank You for the information! I hope you don't mind my sending alternate information.
The corrections I sent were from death and birth records.
Ann Fife; birth, 1859, V. 125, page 5. Death 1859, V. 131, page 64 Mass Vital Records 1841-1910.
Michael Fife death, 1855, V.95, page 65.
I have been to the cemetery and had a go at the records a while back. You have done a superb job with them and I appreciate all the work you have done with Catholic Mount Auburn Cemetery. I have been going back through my Family Tree, adding some records and correcting some of the source records. I can send the other sources for corrected/alternate records I have sent if you think it would be helpful to others.

Thanks you again. The information and pictures are much appreciated.

RE: Driscoll lot at Catholic Mt. Auburn Cemetery
Hi Bill. Thanks for the information on the Driscoll's plot. Jane Quinn Barnes is my 2nd Great Grandmother. Her husband (Thomas Barnes) is buried nearby in a different plot (no marker - I visited last month). If it weren't for your information on find-a-grave, I would have never located either of them. I really appreciate it.

RE: William McCarron-I added a bio. Is he one of yours?
Dang, how sad and definitely one of those MccCarrons. Thanks for putting the bio on findagrave. Your attention to that cemetery is just wonderful.

That probably makes his father the James there 96499023 but no proof of any of those relationships.
