Location: St. Mary's Cemetery is located up on a bluff, on the north side of Main St. and along the east side of Lepper Rd (County Rd 20).

St. Mary's Cemetery is owned by St. Mary's Church of Amsterdam, NY. The present-day St. Mary's Cemetery was established in 1891. Prior to that, the church had used a cemetery in the southern portion of Amsterdam, on the other side of the Mohawk River, directly underneath where State Highway 5S now runs.

When the State began building Highway 5S in the early 1950s, workers discovered the cemetery when they accidentally unearthed some 30 bodies. Floyd Sorrentino, an Albany undertaker, was hired to disinter every body and reinter their remains at the present-day St. Mary's Cemetery. A total of 2,830 bodies were removed. According to the book, "St. Mary’s Parish A History" by Jackie Murphy, 770 of these remains were identified. She estimated another 2,000 remained unidentified.

    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.
