RE: Hughes family
Sure.

4300 Old Frederick Road, Baltimore, Maryland

Its inside New Cathedral Cemetery. The entrance is on Old Frederick Road. I suggest, when you enter, you stop at the office on the left and ask them for a map and directions to St. Patrick's. Generally you go straight ahead until you get to a stone wall, and keep right along the stone wall, then proceed straight to the fence.

RE: Hughes family
Sorry I was so long in replying here.

St. Patricks is is a part of New Cathedral Cemetery, at 4300 Old Frederick Road in Baltimore.

The cemetery is huge, but you need to go to the gate on Old Frederick road. Once in, the easiest/best thing to do is go to the office which is just on the left as you enter, and ask them for directions to st patricks. Thye are very helpful and will give you a map with directions. In greneral you bear right foorm the entrance, turn right at the stone wall, and then go straight until you get to the end of the cemetery..Its real easy to get lost, though so I recommend you get the map.

The cemetery itself is not in good shape, and basically I have taken pictures of every memorial that's there and posted them at find a grave. So if you do not see the memorials you are looking for online, most likely you won't find it eaither when you go. I do have about 30-40 pictures I have not posted though, because the stones are so decomposed its tough to make them out.

I too have ancestors in that cemetery, which I first visited about 30 years ago when I was doing genealogical research. Over the years I have een saddened at how the cemetery has fallen in disrepair, and how vandals and the elements are slowly destroying everything. In another 10-20 years I expect none of the pre 1900 stones will be left. SO I took it upon myself to preserve what is left online for future generations. I started with the memorials and am now in the process of adding the actual burial records. There are about 10 times as many people buried there as there are surviving memorials..I estimate there are about 10,000 people buried there, but only about 400 or so stones. Of course many of those buried were too poor to erect a memorial, and many infants. In the early 1800's infant mortality was very high, and there were many diseases such as dysentery, yellow fever and small pox that took many. For the area, "old age" was around 40 years old..
Anyway sorry tobalther on..please feel free to write back if you have any further questions
