Old Irish Catholic Cemetery
Located at 245 East Third Street,
next to the Old Episcopal Cemetery.
Burials here date back to 1795, but wasn't officially established until the early 1820's.
The cemetery was closed in the late 1870's and some the bodies were moved to the Calvary Cemetery, the new Catholic Cemetery, on West Main Street and some left buried there. The stones were removed from their graves during the 1960's, so they do not stand with their graves. Unless indicated, the people listed on the stones are still buried there. They are gone but not forgotten.
