Important Notes:
The list below is incomplete, there are many other burials in this cemetery.
Because St. Mary's shares borders with the Strawberry Point cemetery, burials occasionally are attributed to the wrong cemetery - all burials should be verified - use the list on this page ONLY as a guide.

If you've walked St. Mary's, and have a transcription, please consider contributing your notes for this website.
