ST. ANDREW CEMETERY
St. Andrews CemeterySaint Andrew Cemetery was established in the mid eighteen hundreds on a hill overlooking the valley, which is now traversed by Saint Anthony Church Road. The cemetery once surrounded a church that was built in 1851.

The cemetery is maintained by Saint Paul Catholic Church and used as a burial gound by Saint Paul and neighboring parishes. The oldset markers reveal numerous German and French names. Birth dates going back as far as 1795 and deaths as early as 1858.

A new section with about 275 graves has been developed in recent years. Further expansion is still a matter to be studied.

Following the time-honored custom from the past, relatives and friends, weather permitting, gather at the cemetery on the first Sunday of November of each year for devotions. And to unite the past with the present, a new custom has been started. That is having a Mass on Memorial Day to honor the memory of our deceased loved ones.

When the present Saint Paul was built, those hand-quarried stones from the "Church on the Hill" were reused for the front walls and also for the altar and baptismal pool of the present day edifice. The large statues of Saint Paul and Saint Francis located in the present church once adorned the frame church on Dixie Highway, so in effect, the modern building in which we worship contains visible parts of our historic past.

This website has all the known names of those buried in the cemetery along with pictures of the tombstones and additional information.
