Information Requested for Sacred Heart (Sweetest Heart of Mary)/Greenwood Cemetery

The Polish Genealogical Society of Michigan is currently pursuing an ambitious project to identify and include in an ongoing database anyone buried in the Sacred Heart of St. Mary Cemetery, located at McNichols and Mound Road, Detroit. They estimate that the total burials are more than 40,000. Unfortunately, the original records of those interred have been lost.

If you have information on individuals buried in this cemetery including name, date born or years of age, date of death or burial, especially names and data on original burials between 1889 and 1900, please send the information to Mr. James J. Tye. Also looking for information on any legends or stories relevant to the cemetery, origin of name of Greenwood, and historic photos of the cemetery.
