St. Mary's Garden Cemetery is owned by St. Mary's Catholic Church of Fredericksburg.

Cemetery History

Often referred to just as "St. Mary's Cemetery", this is the primary cemetery of St. Mary's Catholic Church. It was established in 1875 after the Church determined its original Pioneer Cemetery was too far from the town's center.

The oldest part of the cemetery is found in the northwest corner. It was originally enclosed by a rock wall laid without mortar. Later additions were enclosed with cast-iron fencing by Rogers Fencing Company of Springfield, Ohio, which was reused from the 1882 Gillespie County Courthouse after the new courthouse was completed in 1939.

The most recent expansion of the cemetery is at the south side.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
