St. John's (formerly St. Mary's) Catholic Cemetery, 26th & Duncan Streets, Louisville, Kentucky

The first burial at St. Mary's took place in 1851.  The Sisters of Charity of Nazareth deeded nine acres at 26th and Duncan to the Diocese of Louisville.  It was often referred to as the German Catholic Cemetery near Portland and the name was changed to St. John's sometime after 1869.  This cemetery today (2002) is in very poor condition and has been often vandalized.  Not all records of burials are available.  What are available are at the Catholic Cemeteries Office at Calvary Cemetery. - history contributed by Janis Fowler 

The layouts below may be difficult to see, but they give you an idea of how the cemetery is laid out.  Please email your coordinator if you have any questions or additional history regarding this cemetery.  Contributing names thus far come from Janis Fowler (JF), Sandi Whitty (SW) and Jane Slaughter (JS).   Additional names have been derived from the publication entitled, "Orena V. Grant Genealogical Collection from Southeastern, North & South Central States" (OG), originally published 1935 and reprinted by The Genealogical Society of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 1964, 409 pages.
