St. Joseph Cemetery
Durbin Cemetery
The original land on which this cemetery lies was
recorded on June 13, 1836, by Elizabeth Durbin, wife
of Joseph Durbin Sr. Records show that John Durbin
was buried on this land in 1831 and Joseph Durbin Sr.
was buried on this land in 1836. The land was later
passed on to Joseph P. Durbin (Squire Joe), his son.
This land was later sold to Elijah Duncan, all but one
acre which was reserved to be used as a cemetery,
which on March 21, 1859 was deeded as the Durbin
Cemetery. On October 17, 1943, the name was
changed to St. Joseph Cemetery. A committee was
formed to maintain the cemetery through donations
made by family and friends of those buried here.
Memorial Donated 1990 by:
Paul and Marilyn Durbin
