The Bogues at New Cathedral

New Cathedral Cemetery, formerly known as Bonnie Brae or just as Cathedral, is a Catholic cemetery located in Baltimore, MD. It is a combination of three different cemeteries: St. Peter’s Kirkyard, Cathedral Cemetery, and St. Patrick’s Cemetery. The earliest interments are from 1770 from St. Peter’s. These were moved to Cathedral in 1816, and then Cathedral moved to a new location once space ran out in 1869 and the name was changed to New Cathedral. St. Patrick’s moved to New Cathedral in 1936.

This is a gorgeous cemetery and very, very large. I could get lost in there.

Many of my Irish ancestors are buried here, including the Bogues.

Below are Henry Bogue, his wife Margaret, and children. All his children are buried either in the same plot or one close by. Here are those graves, minus Henry Bogue Jr. and John.

Henry Bogue Jr. is buried with his wife and family, all in the same plot as his father. Only about half of his children are buried here.

Henry Jr.’s grandchildren, through his son Robert, are also here.

As are Henry Jr.’s wife, Ellen Tracy’s parents and siblings.

New Cathedral does offer genealogical searches through their website. For free, they will look up to see if someone is interred there and where the plot is. They will go into more detail and even take pictures of the grave for a fee. I have not used this service yet as I live close enough to visit, but it will be a good resource in the future to find the plots of those i do not know.
