St. Stephen's Cemetery
Baseline Road
Grand Island, Erie, New York

"Inscriptions on the remaining tombstones in the older burial grounds
of St. Stephen's Cemetery, Grand Island, New York."


History: This cemetery was founded in 1862, in conjunction with the formation of St. Stephen's Roman Catholic Church parish shortly before that year.

It is assumed the burials in this cemetery began coinciding with the establishment of this church;
however one or two graves were found indicating burials prior to that time.

Conditions of Cemetery: This cemetery is in very good condition; well maintained, well manicured. no visible signs of vandalism. little stone deterioration.

Directions: Take I-90 north to exit 19. turn right on Whithaven Road to first traffic light.
Then right on baseline Road....St. St. Stephen's is approx. 500 feet from the intersection, on the right side of Baseline Road.
During July 1997, I walked this old section and recored the tombtone inscriptions; This listing was updated July 2003

Unless otherwise noted all listings are tombstone readings, and the information has not been provided by any official cemetery source.
It is offered here as a tool to promote further research, and should not be considered as verified proof for genealogical records.
This information is to be used as a reference, please check with the source for conformation.
Readings have been doubled checked, but mistakes are possible.

I will do lookups, until I can type all the information and place it on line.
