Marine Cemetery

This page reflects the current status of an ongoing effort to collect information on Jefferson County cemeteries. The data below may change as additional information is gathered.

Between 1913 and February 1924 approximately 60 deaths occurred with burial noted as "Marine Cemetery." The deceased were males, foreign born. Most of the deaths occurred at the Marine Hospital, a few at St. John's Hospital, one aboard a Chilean ship.

Burials may have started before 1913. After 1924 those dying at the Marine Hospital were interred at Redmen Cemetery.

The location of the "Marine Cemetery" has not been positively established. One source said that the "Marine Cemetery" consisted of plots at Redmen Cemetery.
