RAINSFORD ISLAND CEMETERY - BOSTON HARBOR 3/31/2017
Burials have been posted from 1810 - 1896 (end of burial activity). Burial information indicates sad and tragic place.
GALLOPS ISLAND CEMETERY BOSTON HARBOR 7-3-2014 JAN 1871 -MARCH 31, 1873 JAN 1902 - MARCH 1902
CATHOLIC MOUNT AUBURN - UPDATE 6-19-2016
145 Civil War Veterans found, although there may be many more due to common names and occupation noted as "Laborer"
Completed adding available newspaper information for cause of death: 26 homicide, 698 accidents and 23 suicides.
Many burials at Catholic Mount Auburn are misidentified on the City/Town death records as being buried at other cemeteries. All area cemeteries are mentioned. The Mount Auburn Cemetery (noted at Cambridge) is incorrectly noted many times.
1854 - December 31, 1920 Edited using death certificates. Online death records end at 1920.
MISSING RECORDS: I HAVE VERFIED WITH THE CATHOLIC CEMETERY ASSOCIATION AND SEEN FOR MYSELF THAT THEY DO NOT HAVE THEM.
I ADDED BURIALS BY A REVIEW OF THE DEATH RECORDS OF BOSTON, CAMBRIDGE, SOMERVILLE, WATERTOWN, BELMONT, CHELSEA. --
June 1, 1882 - December 31, 1884 (Somerville & Chelsea records did not list a city or cemetery of burial and could not be added for that period.
Jan 1 1910 - June 30, 1911
September - October 1916
January - April 1920

|Denise||RE: Catholic Mount Auburn Cemetery inquiry|
Thank you. Thats too bad the other names are not engraved. It just looks strange to see Grace Mccolgans name and no others. :( Denise.

|Eala||RE: Catholic Mount Auburn- also in the lots|
Thank you for the information! I know you spoke last week at the Cambridge Public library, and I was dissappointed that I could not attend. I have found your work very helpful.

|Kathleen Ticknor Lawless||RE: Also buried with John Patten|
This is very kind of you to share! It means a great deal to the family. Would you have any record of the burial site of George A. Patten (son of John Patten) or his wife Annie (Burchell) Patten?
Obituary: "George A. Patten.
Funeral services were held Tues., a.m., at the Sacred Heart Church, Watertown, for Geo. A. Patten, 81, of 28 Aberdeen Ave., well known retired local policeman, who died Aug. 23 at the City Hospital, following a heart attack.
He had been a member of the Police Dept. for several years, and was well known in the East Cambridge section where he patrolled. He was a charter member of Cambridge Lodge of Elks.
Surviving are 3 sons, Major Raymond L. Patten, serving with the Military Police, a local police officer on military leave, Patrolman Leonard E. Patten of this city, Geo. A., Jr. and 2 daughters, Mrs. John B. Rogers of Detroit and Mrs. Edw. L. Grueby of Belmont."

|Christle R Jackson||Thanks|
I really appreciate all the research you have done. I knew my ancestor died on Rainsford Island from small pox. I felt so sad that he died away from his family at only sixteen years old. He must of joined the Mass 5th Colored Calvary to follow in the footsteps of his older brothers. They were Native Americans. Thank you for researching and posting the history of the island. At least now we know more about his circumstances and I can keep this history for my family. Maybe one day we can visit and pay our respects.
Thank you, I would've never known where one of my more mysterious ancestors was buried if it wasn't for your work!

|Jane Muir Sellery||Mary E Gatt, #114182195|
Thank you for creating this memorial for Mary Ellen Gatt, the eldest sister of my 2d great-grandmother, Jane Gatt.
Birth no. 271, Charlestown, MA, Mary Ellen Gatt, b 21 Jun 1860, daughter of James R & Mary (Downing) Gatt.
Death 393, Charlestown, MA. Mary E Gatt, b abt 1860, d 20 Oct 1865 at Charlestown, Massachusetts, Res. 12 Corey. Death Age: 5y 4m. Father Name: James J Gatt Mother Name: Mary Downey. Cause: congestion of the brain. Burial: Mt Auburn, Cambridge.
I was wondering if you could help me locate the location of her father's grave? Her father's death was recorded in Charlestown: James J. Gatt, 33 yo, d 17 Feb 1872 at Corey St, Charlestown; occupation--carpenter; parents--George & Marion; cause--heart disease; burial location--Malden.
I am assuming that the indication "Malden" could denote either Holy Cross or St. Mary. Any assistance you could provide would be most appreciated.

The John "Jack" O'Malley that I have a memorial for was my father in law. He was a truck driver.
