The Catholic Church of St. Mary of the Assumption in Lancaster is surrounded on three sides by a cemetery. The information contained on this page is from notes made by walking through the cemetery and reading the gravestones. I made note only of gravestones of potential interest to my genealogy. The walk was performed in June 2003. We walked through the cemetery from east to west. We added some additional information in a visit in September 2004.

Some of the older stones are in German. In some cases, I have transcribed the German text as is (or as well as I could read it). Here are some common terms or abbreviations:
