St. Martin Catholic Cemetery of Milwaukee
Saint Martin Cemetery Granville, Milwaukee County, Wisconsin Appleton Ave at Villard Englewood, Town of Granville WI
The records of St. Martin Catholic Cemetery of Milwaukee (formerly Granville), Wisconsin were obtained from the original church records. St. Martin is located on the west side of Appleton Avenue near Villard Avenue. The church was torn adorn around 1924.
The cemetery is no longer in use, and is cared for by Holy Cross Cemetery. They are both Catholic. The records are kept at St. Agnes in Butler, Wisconsin.
The cemetery has about 35 graves. Most of the graves are marked by small gray tombstones that lie flat in the ground. Some are partially covered by earth and grass. Six graves are more elaborate, above ground tombstones.
The parish was organized in July 1846 by Father M. Antonius Meyer. The first resident pastor was a Father A. Urbanek, who served there until 1849. He was succeeded by Father P.J. Fander, who was pastor in 1850 and 1851.
A frame church was built in 1847-48 and was replaced by a brick building in 1876. The cemetery was on the southwest side of the church.
Priests from St. Catherine's Catholic Church on W. Brown Deer Rd. and present N. 76th Pl and from St. Anthony's Catholic Church in former Fussville (now Menomonee Falls) served this congregation in its early years.
Services at St. Martin's were discontintued in 1922, and the building was razed in 1924. The early church records (burial, marriage and birth) are kept at St. Agnes Catholic Church, 12748 W. Cameron Ave. Butler.
