St. Joseph's Catholic Church Cemetery

Contributor's Notes

This registration of the St. Joseph Catholic Church cemetery was done as an Eagle Scout Project by Daniel A. Gonski, a member of Boy Scout Troop 883, Eldersburg, MD. This project consisted of cleaning the gravestones and cemetery grounds, copying the information from the stones, planting native perennials, laying mulch, making a map of the cemetery, preparing the stone information for the internet, and constructing a booklet containing the stone information and pictures of the stones. St. Joseph Catholic Community and the Historical Society of Carroll County will receive a map, a booklet, and a disk with the database in case there are additions made to the cemetery. The following organizations and people helped during the duration of this project: Tyco Fire and Security Company, Columbia, MD; Joseph L. Mathias Monuments, Westminster, MD; Haight Funeral Home, Sykesville, MD; Copy Post, Eldersburg, MD; St. Joseph Catholic Community, Sykesville, MD; Martins, Eldersburg, MD; Safeway, Eldersburg, MD; Rolls of Film, Frederick, MD; my aunt, a professional photographer; my grandfather, a Master Gardener; a local Master Wildlife Habitat Naturalist; the Historical Society of Carroll County, Westminster, MD; The Department of Public Works, Westminster, MD; Boy Scout Troop 883; my family and friends. All of these organization’s contributions and individual’s hard work and time have been greatly appreciated. Their help has gone a long way in the completion of this Eagle Scout Project.

The old St. Joseph Catholic cemetery is located in Historic Sykesville, MD on Mellor Ave off of Sandosky Road. This church is no longer used for regular Sunday worship, for the parish has outgrown this location. A new, larger church has been built at 915 Liberty Road in Sykesville, MD. At the new church, searchers will find the map of the cemetery, directions to the cemetery, and the booklet with the cemetery information. Thank you for visiting the registration of the St. Joseph Catholic Church cemetery by Eagle Scout Candidate Daniel A. Gonski.
