The Irish who came to this country during the famine years of the forties, some of whom settled at Addison, brought with them great respect for their dead. One of their first acts was to buy a small piece of land as a burial place. Actually they had their cemetery several years before there was any Catholic church in the place. Soon there was need of additional land. In 1902 four acres of land of the Bliss property was purchased for cemetery purposes. The new cemetery was located on the same street as the church but on the opposite side and about one-quarter of a mile from the church.
