St. Mary's Cemetery, Fall River MA
est. 1840
This is a complete transcription of all existing stones of Irish burials in the cemetery. The cemetery contains predominantly Irish, with just a few French-Canadian and others. There are relatively few stones, considering the large area of the cemetery, and it is likely that there may be many more unmarked graves here. We have learned, however, that probably during the 1920s, many graves were disinterred and moved to St. Patrick's Cemetery. There are no records available for the original burials at St. Mary's, and therefore, there is little, if any information for those that were moved to St. Patrick's. (Transcription completed 6/01)
