Cemetery History

The old cemetery is officially located at 60 Falconer St, but it is recognized as being at the corner of Grove Street and DePuyster Avenue, with its first burial dating back to 1866. There are no plots available for sale at the old cemetery.

In 1865, Rev. James Coyle purchased the first land (about 4 acres from James and Mary Jones) for St. Joachim's Cemetery. Fr. Coyle was the first resident pastor of St. Joachim's Church. In 1866, the first recorded burial was that of Ignatius Cooley, age 32, Feb. 16, 1866.

St. Joachim's New Cemetery was established in 1929, and located at 325 Washington Ave, in Beacon.

    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.
