The graves from St. Peter's Cemetery were moved in 1930 to Calvary.

The first burial in the parish cemetery was on March 19, 1867 and the last burial was on Nov. 3, 1923. Located at the crossroads of Western Ave. and Wayne St. in Toledo, the city felt that the land would be better used to enhance traffic flow at that intersection. So, in 1928 the city purchased the cemetery land in order to 'round the corner connecting the two streets'. In 1930, some disinterred burials were moved to family plots in Calvary Cemetery. Other burials went unclaimed, or were unable to be identified through crumbling tombstones, and those burials were put in a mass plot in Calvary's section 1, with a headstone dedicated to all parishoners. All tombstones at St. Peter's Cemetery were discarded and there is no listing identifying those who were moved.
