The 07-04-2020 Revised List of Burial Records for St. Vincent Cemetery in Clifton Park was uploaded to this Facebook Group. Many thanks to Archivist Joyce Erway and Michael Lewis for working on this Revision. Two people were transferred out of St. Vincent Cemetery to other cemeteries, and another person was buried at Holy Cross Cemetery despite an inaccurate Church record. A decision was made to keep the names in this revised list, but note that they were buried elsewhere and the name of that cemetery. This decision to keep the names on the list was made to enable future genealogists researching their ancestors’ burial sites.  Friends of St. Vincent Cemetery Baltimore, MD is a public Facebook group.
