I shall fear no evil,
for Thou art with me,
Thy rod and Thy staff,
they comfort me... -- Ps. 23
Mt Calvary Cemetery is associated with the Sacred
The cemetery contains 2368 burial sites, of which 886 are currently occupied.
The old books have names with no grave locations listed. They were indigent and
could not afford to purchase their own site: therefore, no monetary receipt was
written and the site was given to them by the Holy
Church. (The name of the
church was changed to Sacred Heart Church in 1907.) In searching the records at
Sacred Heart, over 300 of these unmarked and un-sited gravesites were found.
Some genealogy information is recorded in the Sacred Heart records. However, if
a person is searching for a certain name, they should keep in mind that some of
these things are written in Latin. In the records you can find information such
as birth dates, baptismal dates, marriage dates, Maiden names, Place of birth,
cause of death, parents' names, and so on.
