St. Marks Roman Catholic Church, Radcliffe Street, Bristol, Pennsylvania, Churchyard Cemetery, 1845


Dublin Core


From the primary author, Hazel Lamon, February 29, 1996:

"This book is divided into two parts. The first part contains a short history of the St. Marks R.C. Church at Radcliffe Street, Bristol, Pennsylvania, taken from 'History of Bristol, Pennsylvania' by Doron Green - 1911. A history of St. Marks School is taken from 'History of Old Homes on Radcliffe Street, Bristol, Pa.' by Doron Green - 1938.

Many of the tombstones in the churchyard cemetery have been in the ground for one hundred and fifty years and some are illegible. They are a monument to those who came from Ireland in search of a better life and made their home here in America.

I have relied on the record for a list of those in unmarked graves.

The second part contains the St. Marks R.C. Cemetery on Bristol Pike, Pennsylvania. Ground was purchased on April 1, 1892 from the Bristol Cemetery Land Company, Inc. by the Rt. Rev. Patrick J. Ryan, Archbishop of Philadelphia.

See page #37 & etc. for details of the graveyard in part two of this book."
