Saint Thomas Catholic Cemetery
New Windsor, Carroll County, Maryland

109 to 111 Springdale Ave
New Windsor MD 21157

Contributed by J Joshua Jenkins, Mar 14, 2003, last edited Dec 07, 2010 [josh@joshjenkins.net]. Total records = 4.

Specifically, Town 111, Map 701, Parcel 262. The last deed listed is from 1867, then owned by the Roman Catholic Archbishop. It was purchased on 19 Dec 1996 by Joan V. Bradford, who is also owner of the adjacent property at 111 Springdale Avenue. The lot is now listed as “County and State Cemetery (Church). It is 21,257 square feet.

All markers had been removed in 1930’s. Only 3 stones are know to have been found, they are near site. One of them is just a footstone. A row of trees have been planted by the neighbor, possibly overtop of the cemetery. There are probably a few more individuals buried here but research has proven most or all documentation has been lost/destroyed.

This cemetery is also known as (New Windsor Cemetery, and New Windsor Catholic Cemetery.) It is recommended you contact Joan Bradford at the Yellow Turtle Inn (111 Sprindale Avenue) before visiting site.

In Dec 2002 I transcribed all existing headstones and records for this cemetery, which has to be very incomplete.
