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. --

Yes. Catherine Clyde (Ravey) Burnham was my great-grandmother.

Hi Bill.

This is clearly a grave of my close relatives.
Not sure what your message means.

Sorry about that. I didn't realize the photo request was still up. I've removed it now.

Smith surname
Mr. McEvoy,
I am researching my surname, Smith. Your association with Find A Grave and Catholic Mount Auburn Cemetery led me to contact you.
My gg grandfather is James H. Smith (Memorial ID 67591641) at Common Street Cemetery. There are birth and death records to support him as my relative. However, the trail goes cold.
His parents are recorded as James Smith and Mary Smith. I believe they could be buried at Catholic Mount Auburn Cemetery.
My search has located James Smith (Memorial ID 98276214 ) on Plot LOT 57, ROW 3 EAST and two Mary Smith's on the same plot. Mary Smith (Memorial ID 102287098) and Mary Hoye Smith (Memorial ID 96347776).
Can you explain how the plots are laid-out? I find it odd that two Mary Smith's are buried that close to each other and to James Smith. Also, If you could point me towards any other documentation for the persons above, I would be grateful.
Any information you could provide concerning these graves would be appreciated. And thank you for your valuable contributions to Find A Grave and the local cemeteries.
