St. Mark’s Community Cemetery and Columbarium

St. Mark’s Community Cemetery and Community Columbarium

St. Mark’s offers two different ways to meet the needs of families at the time of death. Our cemetery began in the 1844 as the traditional place for burials. It is the final resting place for more than 6,000 persons, some of them Revolutionary War veterans. Since you may wish to search our, we have uploaded the oldest ones (1844-1980 or so) as PDFs. Feel free to search them.

We offer burial niches for any family in our community at a very modest price ($1,500).

As Christians, we recognize both the reality of death and the promise of resurrection. May our loved ones rest in peace and rise in glory.
