This active cemetery is located on the grounds of the Redemptorist Fathers' Seminary at 327 Lac La Belle Drive, just west of the intersection of Pennsylvania Street on the norther shore of Lac La Belle, Village of Lac La Belle, in the Southeast 1/4 of Section 19, Oconomowoc Township.
Redemptorist Fathers' Cemetery was established by the Redemptorist Fathers, December 28, 1918. It is a private cemetery only for the Catholic Order of the Redemptorists. The Seminary has also been known as the Immaculate Conception Seminary.
In 1924 a bell tower was erected at the location with an 18-note instrument installed by Deagan. The tower and bell were lost when the buildings were razed.
UPDATE: On October 8, 1988, the St. Clement Health Care Center opened in Liguori, MO (near St. Louis). The Oakland Province Redemptorists moved there from Oconomowoc. It has been reported that later the monastary was torn down to make way for a subdivision and the graves were moved to St. Louis to their new health care center location.
There are cemetery records 1918-date. There is a chart of the cemetery and all records are in the Provincial House in Glenview, Illinois. For any records contact:
Glenview, IL 60025.
There are no records at the cemetery.
At the Waukesha County Museum there is information on the Seminary.
There are no transcriptions of tombstones online to the best of my knowledge.
