Cemetery History

Calvary Cemetery sits at the end of Collins Road in Collinsville overlooking the Farmington River on the site of the Sam Collin's mansion that burned down on January 30, 1912.  It has three sections surrounded by old growth trees:  Upper Calvary, Lower Calvary, and the Field.  Upper Calvary is unavailable for burial rights purchases. Lower Calvary and the Field, however, have graves and plots available for the purchase of burial rights.

In 1914, St. Patrick’s Church purchased the land from the Collins, Edwards and Codding Estates. Calvary Cemetery was dedicated October 3, 1915. The first burials were from St. John’s Cemetery, followed by Simon Munick on November 12, 1915.

When the Nepaug Reservoir was built in 1915, 174 bodies were removed from Nepaug Village, “St. John's Cemetery”, per the Sexton’s records, to Calvary Cemetery but there are no further records.

Calvary Cemetery is managed by St. Patrick's Cemetery Association, which also manages two other cemeteries nearby, including St. Patrick's Cemetery in Collinsville, and St. Patrick's Cemetery in the Town of Burlington.

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.
