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.

|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.

|Cheryl GT||RE: John|
The John "Jack" O'Malley that I have a memorial for was my father in law. He was a truck driver.
|JM||Birds and Peter Burke under RM's gravestone|
Thanks for clarifying!
I copied your note about who was buried under RM's gravestone with a flowers note I left for
each of the other RM let share his grave so you don't get this question again:
"Per manager of these memorials, also buried in this grave:
BIRD, MARGARET E
Thanks for keeping track of these many complicated details at this historic cemetery.

Thank you VERY much for the photo. I really appreciate it. Thank you for the effort that you took even though there was not a stone, and the careful way that you added the arrow to the photo!
All the very best to you,

|Neil D Scheidt||RE: LTC James Fleming|
There was a government stone ordered for him and shipped to his cemetery. The order was dated Nov 29, 1879. It was possibly never shipped, lost, stolen of is buried beneath the ground- which I have found very often. If you know his exact grave location you could probe around. Otherwise, contact the local Veteran group and place an order which will be made if you are a descendant or perhaps even if you're not.
