The St. Mary Catholic Cemetery is located on the southwest corner of the intersection of US. Route 20 and SR 64 in the village of Assumption. The cemetery is on land purchased from the United States by M. Bunting in 1835. In 1867 ground for a church and a cemetery was donated by Jacob Berrens. A small white church stood where the cemetery is located until the new St. Mary church was dedicated in 1888. The cemetery lies west of the church and was originally about 27 by 11 rods. The Right Reverend Richard Gilmaur consecrated the cemetery in 1879. Several additions have been made to the cemetery. On November 29, 1919 some tombstones were damaged during a storm that took the steeple off the church and wrecked the twenty-two stall hitching shed used by members of the congregation.

The cemetery is located in Amboy Township, Fulton County, Ohio, and is # 3732 (Saint Marys Cemetery / Caraghar Cemetery / Assumption Saint Marys Cemetery) in “Ohio Cemeteries 1803-2003”, compiled by the Ohio Genealogical Society.

The cemetery is registered with the Ohio Division of Real Estate and Professional Licensing (ODRE) as St. Mary Cemetery with registration license number CBR.0000981944.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Geographic Names Information System (GNIS) feature ID for the cemetery is 1960511 (Saint Marys Catholic Cemetery / Saint Mary’s Catholic Cemetery).
