Introduction | Agency History | Order of Microfilming

 Introduction

The records of the Catholic Cemeteries, Diocese of Toledo, 1843 - 2004, were transferred for microfilming to the Center for Archival Collections, Bowling Green State University, Bowling Green, Ohio 43403, in August 2004, with the cooperation of Jack W. Hoeflinger, director of Catholic Cemeteries, Diocese of Toledo. Additional records of mount Carmel Cemetery were microfilmed in November 2004.

The collection consists of the records of Mt.Carmel Cemetery (1843 - 2004), Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery (1929) and Calvary Cemetery (1887 - 1994). A brief history in the Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery file indicates that the first burial was March 19, 1867 and the last burial was November 3, 1923. Due to inconsistencies in pagination and transcription of data, researchers are encouraged to refer to all volumes within each series.

This register and this collection was prepared by Kathleen M. Gardner.

 Agency History

Mount Carmel Cemetery

Mount Carmel Cemetery, originally known as St. Mary's and St. Francis de Sales' Cemetery is the oldest existing catholic cemetery in Toledo. Located at the corner of Lagrange Street and Manhattan Boulevard, Mount Carmel Cemetery has been in existence for more than 100 years.

Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery

Sts. Peter and Paul Cemetery was located in South Toledo at the corner of Western and Wayne Streets. According to the Catholic Cemeteries, burials took place there from 1867 - 1923. In 1928 and 1929 the city of Toledo negotiated with the parish to purchase the land and consequently the bodies were removed and re-interred at Calvary Cemetery.

Calvary Cemetery

Calvary Cemetery is located at the corner of Dorr Street and Parkside Boulevard. It was founded in 1886 and serves as the resting place of more than 102,000 interments.
