This cemetery was used by members of both St. Joseph's and Immaculate Conception parishes. Burials date between 1800 and 1940. At about the time of the second World War, Old St. Joseph's was abandoned and it grew up into a forest.
Old St. Joseph's Cemetery is located at the site of the first St. Joseph's Church and dates from the 18th century. It is located on Busy Corner Road, Morganza, near the juction of that road with MD Route 5. The current (1860) St. Joseph's Church is located at the crest of the hill, a few hundred yards to the north of this site.
In the late 1980's, the cemetery was cleared and restored as the result of the efforts of a descendant of an old St. Joseph's family and a tremendous outpouring of community support. The cemetery is now well marked and maintained. All the grave markers and the unmarked burials from church records are listed
Address and telephone numbers are those of St. Joseph's Church.
