Looking over the right half of the entrance to St. Mary's Cemetery in Portsmouth, IA. It is located to the west of the church grounds of St. Mary Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church. The first Catholic Cemetery was located two and a half miles east of Portsmouth. In 1886, the original wooden church was moved to Portsmouth and in 1887 the cemetery consisting of five graves was moved to the present cemetery. (Research by Rita Ohlinger, December 2002.)
