Search Old Saint Marys Cemetery:

St Mary's Catholic Church was the first organized church in Cone, Monroe County, Michigan, and its parishioners were primarily Irish by birth. It is generally referred to as the Cone Catholic Church. The congregation was organized in 1846, when Rev Pierre Smother established a Catholic church which was attached to the Ypsilanti parish. The church building was begun in 1848 and was located on Welch Road west of Dennison Road. Portions of the Hanlon and Johnston farms were used for the church and cemetery. This general area was then called West Milan though not incorporated until 1855. The church seemed to have been active at least until after the 1st World War. The church was later destroyed and there is no trace of it now. The cemetery has long been unused...the last burial appears to have been in 1925.
