Dear Friends of St. Patrick's Cemetery,
We had a tremendous response to the release of St. Patrick’s Cemetery: A Glimpse into its History and People Buried There - Volume II. We just presented the first wave of proceeds to the Cemetery Committee of $1,700, which was matched by a local foundation - for total of $3,400 for Volume II. With the proceeds of $2,600 from Volume I (matched for a total of $5,200), this book has now contributed $8,600 for the betterment of our cemetery! These funds will help "right" many of the monuments which have been toppled and other key maintenance efforts. Thanks for this tremendous support!
Let’s not stop here! Please forward this message to a friend or family member and ask them to help our cemetery by purchasing either Volume I or Volume II - or both. They also make a great gift.
Volume I and II are available at the Niagara County Historical Society Gift Shop, 215 Niagara St. They will ship anywhere in the country.
Thanks for your continued support. I am now working on a more complete listing of burials for Volume III!
