Transcribed and submitted by Kevin Murphy
These gravestone transcriptions are from the Old Town Cemetery in Sandwich, which is an old colonial cemetery (oldest grave 1683). There is one small area with typical Catholic gravestones. There are only a few but they are quite early Irish graves. They were probably buried here before St. Peter's Cemetery opened just down the street.
