St. Agnes Cemetery, Menands, NY
Lot Sale Book
St. Agnes Cemetery is a 108 acre Catholic cemetery located in the Village of Menands, New York. This data base of names from the Lot Sale Book for St. Agnes is the earliest book of records of this cemetery which was founded in 1867.
The Lot Sale Book is quite deteriorated and due to its condition is very difficult to use without further damage. The historian at St. Agnes Cemetery allowed the Troy Irish Genealogy Society to scan the book and transcribe and publish the data contained in the book on its website.
The above deed covers the Lot purchased by Thomas O’Brien and Maurice O’Brien on April 12, 1889 for the amount of $173.94. Both Thomas and Maurice were living in Albany.
As outlined in the Deed, the westerly half of the lot is under the control of Thomas O’Brien and the easterly half of the lot is under the control of Maurice O’Brien.
The following data elements are part of this new series of records as shown in the Lot Sale Book:
Surname – The overwhelming majority of names are Irish surnames.
Given Name – Names of individuals involved in a joint purchase of the lot will also be listed here. Many joint lot purchasers had different surnames which may be an indication of a family relationship.
Date of Certificate
Consideration – Shows the dollar amount paid for the plot.
Date of Deed
Square Feet of Plot
Remarks – If a different surname was mentioned in the remarks column, a cross-reference was made in the index to the name of the lot purchaser.
Page – Book pages only showed the alphabet letter at the top without a page number. In scanning the pages, numbers were assigned to facilitate working with transcribers and proof readers. For example, there were 11 pages of records for the letter “B” so
the scanned pages were identified as page B1 to page B11.
This new series of records will be of especial interest to researchers of the early Irish immigrant families to the Albany and surrounding area. A quick review of the surnames in the Lot Sale Book show an overwhelming number of Irish surnames as the early purchasers of lots in the then newly opened St. Agnes Cemetery.
