St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery Cemetery is located at 92nd and Edgerton; near Forest Home
This is an older cemetery and difficult to find. Edgerton is the next road after Root River Parkway, when going west on Forest Home.
The sign in front of the cemetery reads: St. Mary's, the oldest cemetery in the area, has a recorded history from 1842.
The log church formerly stood on the present site of the cemetery donated by John Furlong, one of the original parishioners. At that time Father Patrick O'Kelley was the priest in attendance.
The second fram church, served until 1873. The third church was a steepled brick building and was used for 67 years. A school was built in 1953.
The earlist stone on record has a death date of 1842. Most of the burials are of people of Irish descent.
