Old Saint Ferdinand Cemetery (1790-1876) was closed to further burials in 1876. The first burial in the NEW Saint Ferdinand Cemetery was in March 1876.
In 1900 the Florissant City Council decreed that all remains must be removed from the Old Cemetery and reinterred in New St. Ferdinand Cemetery or Sacred Heart Cemetery. There were no records kept of which graves were moved, as relatives were responsible for this job. Many graves were left if there was no one alive to do this. The old cemetery still exists, as Spanish Land Grant Park, a passive park in the City of Florissant.
