    1. [NY-CEMETERIES] New Data Base - St. John's Cemetery, Albany, NY
    2. Bill & Cathy McGrath via
    3. The latest addition to the transcription projects on the website of the Troy Irish Genealogy Society, www.troyirish.com are the recently discovered interment records of 12,731 individual from the long closed St. John's Cemetery in Albany New York. St. John's Cemetery was located on Delaware Avenue in Albany, New York. To see these records on the TIGS website, click on PROJECTS and then ST. JOHN'S CEMETERY, ALBANY, NY - INTERMENT RECORDS. It had been widely reported that the interment records for this cemetery, covering interments starting over 173 years ago, had been lost or destroyed. However, in a recent chance conversation with the Historian at St. Agnes Cemetery in Menands, New York, it was discovered that the mostly intact St. John's interment book was in the possession of a retired cemetery employee and the book was promptly recovered. St. John's Cemetery was opened in 1841 by St. John's Church in Albany in an area which was considered "country" at that time. However, with the growth of the City of Albany, the cemetery land was wanted for development and in 1878 and 1879, the Albany City Council ordered that no further burials were to be made there and the cemetery had to close. Burials, however, continued as late as 1888-1890 before the cemetery closed and re-interments of the thousands of individuals buried there was started in the early 1900's. This long closed church of St. John's was located on Green Street in Albany's South End and it's parishioners were mainly Irish famine immigrants that began pouring into Albany during the 1820's and 1830's. This "Irish" connection is shown in the following summary of burials of this first generation of Irish immigrants, which, for the most part are identified as to the "County" in Ireland where they came from. It can be assumed that many of the other 46 years of interment records in this cemetery were for the children and grandchildren of these early Irish immigrants. A breakdown of the Irish immigrants identified on the interment records with their home county in Ireland shows the following: Antrim -10 Armagh - 35 Carlow - 80 Cavan - 307 Claire - 62 Cork - 376 Derry - 22 Donegal - 28 Down - 39 Dublin - 52 Fermangh - 30 Galway - 39 Kerry - 76 Kildare - 38 Kilkenny - 195 Kings - 114 Leitrim - 28 Limerick - 160 Londonderry - 5 Longford - 143 Louth - 93 Mayo - 36 Meath - 116 Monaghan - 47 Queens - 114 Roscommon - 159 Sligo - 47 Tipperary - 458 Tyrone - 91 Waterford - 83 Westmeath - 138 Wexford - 131 Wicklow - 43 Ireland-No County - 500 TOTAL IRISH - 3,895 Other countries of origin identified in the interment records list Canada-89, England-30, France-8, Germany-198, Holland-7, Poland-2, Scotland-6, Spain-1 and Wales-2. Also identified were individuals from the following states; California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Virginia. A smaller number of records shows one or two individuals from all over New York State cities, towns and counties while three locations show a heavier concentration; Rensselaer with 106, Greenbush with 77 and New York City with 63. As would be expected, Albany with a total of 5,815 records was shown as the county of origin for the largest number of individuals. Of course this figure includes the second and third generations for those early Irish immigrants. These fantastic records from this recently rediscovered interment book is a wonderful find for genealogists, especially for those researching Irish surnames. As genealogists searching Irish surnames often find out, it is quite rare to find records that identify the Irish county of orgin. Bill McGrath TIGS Project Coordinator Clifton Park, NY

    1. Re: [NY-CEMETERIES] Union Cemetery
    2. Hi Fred, I was reading a bit about the history of Union Cem. & apparently when they were re-interring to Cedar Grove they found thousands of bodies that were never recorded ! Let us know what you find out from Cedar Grove. Regards, Sherri   I had discounted this cemetery because at the beginning of the description it indicated that it was for two protestant churches and the Borst family was Catholic.  Now, reading further down the webpage I see that the churches were small so they sold plots to individual families.  This is probably the right cemetery.  I will follow up with Cedar Grove.  Thanks,  Fred Kopfler

    2. Hi Fred, This site has a detailed description on the history of Union Cemetery: http://nycemetery.wordpress.com/2011/04/20/union-cemetery/ And, the site for Cedar Grove (where Union was re-interred): http://www.thecedargrovecemetery.com/ There is an interment search at the above site, but it appears that it does not cover the 1850's. Perhaps try contacting Cedar Grove directly. Cedar Grove Mailing Address PO Box 228 Flushing, NY 11352 (718) 939-2041 Regards, Sherri The husband of my great great aunt, John Borst, kept many personal notes in a small day book.  Included on a page of deaths of family members were the following entries about two of their children: Union Cemeterie in New York Rest Maria Amalia Borst born 25 Febr 1853 in Germanie died, 20 Sept, 1856, Henrich Borst, born 1 May 1856  died 7 Sept, 1857 in New York.  I do not know where this Union Cemetery is located.  The family arrived in New York on October 15, 1853, on the ship, "Orphan" which had sailed from Bremerhaven.  The earliest record of their being in Springfield, Louisiana, is February 15, 1858.  Another note indicated that the family had relatives in New York City.   Any help in locating records for this cemetery would be appreciated.

    3. Hi, not sure if you already googled “Union Cemetery, New York” or how much research you have already done, but this is what I found. A long story short, Union Cemetery is now under a high school with the remains reinterred elsewhere. Cedar Grove Cemetery might have the records. http://nycemetery.wordpress.com/2011/04/20/union-cemetery/ Angela On Mar 9, 2014, at 7:29 PM, Fred Kopfler <kopfler.fred@charter.net> wrote: > The husband of my great great aunt, John Borst, kept many personal notes in a small day book.

    2. Bill & Cathy McGrath
    3. ANNOUNCING NEW DATABASE BOOK 4 - INTERMENT INDEX ST. MARY'S CEMETERY, TROY NEW YORK INTERMENT YEARS - April 1935 - November 1952 A. Book 4, part of a multi-volume set of Interment Records at St. Mary's Cemetery, Troy, NY, which includes 5,112 names, has now been added to the Troy Irish Genealogy website. You can view these interment records by going to the Troy Irish Genealogy website at: www.rootsweb.com/~nytigs/ click on TIGS PROJECTS and then click on ST. MARY'S CEMETERY, TROY, NY - INTERMENT RECORDS. B. This new data series of interment records list an individuals name, date of death and age at death. In a large number of records, the age is reported in years, months and days. Some entries without a date of death, are re-interments to or from another cemetery. It should be noted that these records, like most of the TIGS data series, cover the general population in the area and are NOT restricted to Irish surnames. C. Researchers having relatives with a CAPITAL DISTRICT area connection, will be interested in these on-line, name searchable, records of names of individuals who were interred in St. Mary's Cemetery in Troy, NY. If you live in a nearby county or even further away, you might want to check out these names. Take a look at the data base, you never know what you will find. D. The TIGS website has a PRINTABLE FORM that can be used to request more information from the Albany Diocesan Cemeteries. Mailing instructions and fees (only $5.00) are on the request form. Additional items that may be available from the full interment record may include: 1. LATE RESIDENCE: While many of the records in Book 4 show only the name of the city as the late residence, 1,348 of the records will show a house number and a Troy street address. 2. INTERMENT DATE: The date of interment in St. Mary's Cemetery may be another clue which will be helpful to genealogy and family researchers. 3. SECTION/LOT#: The section and lot number may be another clue which will be helpful to genealogy and family researchers. 4. UNDERTAKER: The name of the undertaker may be another clue which will be helpful to genealogy and family researchers. E. There are now 17,009 interment records in the four Books of St. Mary's Cemetery records now on-line on the TIGS website. Book 5 of St. Mary's interments records is now being scanned. Hopefully you will find some of your ancestors listed in these interment records or in the 200,00 Irish and Non-Irish names in the various other data series on the Troy Irish Genealogy website.

    3. I know some of you noticed something new had been added to SAMPUBCO http://www.sampubco.com/cemetery/index.htm Right now, only the New York Gravestone Photo Project name lists at the moment, which will be updated monthly per county as needed. There will be other cemetery lists that are not of this particular project, particular the old lists which were recorded 1940s or before. The reason for the cemetery burial lists - they provide clues to where the probate records may be. The link to NY GPP is provided on each county page for quick search for full details and to see photos. To obtain photo, you need to contact the submitter for permission (they own the photos, not me, under copyright law.) W. David Samuelsen SAMPUBCO

    3. Hi David, This is Angela Munro from the Ogden Deaf Branch and would like to ask for your help for our NY relatives. I'm trying to find the parents (both grandfathers and grandmothers) and marriage records for the following ancestors: Collins Clark (my husband's 3G paternal grandfather) - dob 14 Feb 1802 bp: Otsego/Oneida, NY. Died 27 Jan 1875 in Palmyra, Wayne, NY. He lived in Lee, Oneida, NY from about 1825 to 1850. Married to Hannah Perry dob 21 Oct 1805 in Oneida, NY, died 21 Oct 1868 in Palmyra, NY. Both Collins and Hannah are buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Lee, Oneida, NY. Robert L Perry (my husband's 4G paternal grandfather) - Estimated year of birth 1776. Died 19 Feb 1832 in New York City, NY. He married Mary Fennell around 1799 at the Trinity Epis Church, New York, NY. She was born around 1777. I have no death information for her. If you can find the information for me that will be great or can let me know where to search and I'll do the rest. These two sets of grandparents have been my biggest brick walls!

    1. [NY-CEMETERIES] New Data Base - Nail Factory Cemetery, Troy
    2. Bill & Cathy McGrath
    3. To view this new data base, go to the Troy Irish Genealogy website - www.rootsweb.com/~nytigs/ click on PROJECTS and then click on NAIL FACTORY CEMETERY. There are over 700 names in this new data base, most of them young children. In some cases the cause of death is shown. The Sixth Ward Cemetery in Troy, known also as the Nail Factory Cemetery and the Iron Works Cemetery, was opened in 1836. As reported by Arthur James Weise on page 178, in his book Troy's One Hundred Years - 1789-1889" published in 1891; "The Sixth Ward Cemetery, on the west side of Vandenburgh Avenue was conveyed by the Troy Iron and Nail Factory Company to the city on May 17, 1836 for a burial place for the use of the people in that part of the city. It comprises about an acre of land." Despite numerous inquiries, no records on when this cemetery closed and on where the remains were removed to, have been discovered. The only remaining symbol from the cemetery is a large concrete cross laying on the former cemetery grounds area which is now the property of Hudson Valley Community College. Previously, the grounds were the site of the Franciscan Monastery which acquired the property from the Burden family which owned the Troy Iron and Nail Factory Company. The following description of the Troy Iron and Nail Factory Company explains that the complex was comprised of the factory and related building, extensive housing for the workers and the cemetery where many of the factory employees and their children were buried. The purpose of the company, disclosed in the articles of incorporation, was the manufacture of bar-iron, steel, nail-rods, hoop-iron, sheet-copper, machinery, tools and implements. The works are described in Spafford's Gazetteer of the State of New York, published in 1824 "Among the manufacturing establishments of this town, the Troy Iron and Nail Factory claims distinguished notice. It stands on the Wynantskill, in the 6th ward, 2 1/2 miles s. of the city, and is owned by an incorporated company, principally in Albany. These works embrace a rolling and slitting mill, a very extensive nail factory, sundry shops for other mechanical business, and about 50 houses, making a busy sequestered manufacturing village.... The Nail Factory is a stone edifice of great extent" There are no complete records of interments in the Nail Factory Cemetery. The records in this data base are mostly compiled from a listing found at the Troy Library. This listing of burials was compiled by Frances D. Broderick and Warren F. Broderick, Lansingburgh, New York dated May 1977. The Broderick's compiled the records from the Old Troy Burial Books at Troy City Hall. Prior to 1850, the city owned burial grounds were usually all called "the Corporate Grounds" and for this reason it is impossible to identify the early Nail Factory burials. Starting in 1850, the burial books identified the cemetery by name, and those records mentioning the Nail Factory Cemetery were copied for the Broderick's document. Several additional burials at the Nail Factory Cemetery that were not on the Broderick's list were obtained from records on the Rootsweb Rensselaer County website. This website, run by Lin Van Buren from London, is working on a major transcription project involving the Troy Burial Records. To see some of the completed work on this project go to: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nyrensse/cemetery.htm Many of the records of interments at the Nail Factory Cemetery indicate that the person "resided at the Nail Factory" In addition to the factory housing at the Nail Factory, this statement seems to have covered a whole area or section of Troy generally around the Factory itself. Of note also, is that the great bulk of these interment records are for small children. It may also be of interest to know that the 169th Regiment, New York Infantry organized in 1862 had a Company I principally recruited from Troy which was also known as the Nail Factory Company.)

With the help of the Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War, a government headstone has been placed on Lucy's grave. On Saturday morning, November 13 at 11 o'clock, all are invited to pay tribute to this courageous lady, so long forgotten.
