This cemetery lies adjacent to the Mound Cemetery, located on the outskirts of Pana, a mile to the west. The plot covers about 5 acres. It was first known as St. Patrick's Cemetery, but in later years (exact date not known) was changed to Calvary. The cemetery is owned and supervised by St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church. Ellen Burke, wife of James DeLane, who died in 1865, was the first interred there.
During the early days, St. Patricks was used by Catholic residents of both Nokomis and Shelbyville.
