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.

Honest Household Scrolling down a member did some census searching and got some biographical information. I added the photo to Charles and Mary J-you may wish to rearrange the photo order. It is high resolution with amazing detail if you click on it

I am quite interested to see this when you upload it. Is it possible to let me know once you do?

Hello! As of yet, I have not found any Campbell's in my line. However, that's not to say that there aren't any.

In my line alone, there are multiple Frank McKenna's - but so far, all of them have been based in Rhode Island. So far, I have at least three generations of Frank McKenna. The memorial that I added today is verified, and backed up through a certified death certificate, as well as personal research.

As far as his wife goes, her maiden name is Searles/Surlis. I've seen this documented on a few different certificates. I have also been told that her last name was changed to Sullivan when she came over from Ireland. However, I haven't found anything that proves that. There is no marriage/death certificate for a Catherine Searles on file in the state archives, but these is one for Catherine Sullivan.

Honora Rosenberger
Hi Bill,

I was wondering how you found the date of birth and death if there isn't a tombstone for Honora Rosenberger. She happens to be my Great Great Great Grandmother and the dates don't match what I have recorded. Let me know!
Thanks Jody Lessard Molenda

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.
