cemetery St. James R.C. (old) – Heritage Renfrew

cemetery St. James R.C. (old)

ST. JAMES ROMAN CATHOLIC CEMETERY (OLD)
MELANIE STREET & HWY. 41, EGANVILLE, ONT.
GRATTAN TOWNSHIP RENFREW COUNTY.

 

This aged cemetery originally covered a large lot directly behind the St. James Roman Catholic Church. In recent years a newer, larger cemetery of the same name was opened directly across Hwy. 41 and the old one closed for burials.
The stones were widely scattered so they were cemented in 3 rows at the back of the lot with a large brown wooden cross erected behind them. A small vault was erected to service area cemeteries. All the stones face the West but for one, that of the Bonfield family which obviously was never moved along with the older stones – it alone faces East. The oldest stone in the collection is #20 – Kelly, which dates back to 1839. The oldest person noted was Martin Egan at 97 years. The last date of interment is #44 Newell, in 1932. The cemetery is well-tended.
The caretaker is Mr. Archie O’Grady and the one who set the stones in cement.
The land was donated by John Egan & James Bonfield (“Lift Up Your Hearts”- Rev. Joseph C. Legree, p. 285)
