Burial records – St. Patrick’s Cemetery
A sandstone church built by Irish immigrants who quarried the stone by hand and hauled it with teams of oxen, St. Patrick’s Georgetown has anchored the faith and memories of its people for 150 years. The history of the church is etched not only in the carved sandstone of the building but in the granite and marble stones in the nearby cemetery. This book includes the most complete list available of burials in St. Patrick’s Cemetery since it was established in 1860.
