About the cemetery

Fern Hill Catholic Cemetery

Washington County
Established 1891
ca. 67 burials


The earliest burial in this cemetery appears to be for Francis Davis, who died in 1892. He shares a large
monument with Anne G. Davis, who died in 1904. Eight members of the Hulsman family are buried here, with interments dating from 1915 to 2009. More recent burials reflect significant Hispanic migration to
Washington County. Fern Hill Catholic Cemetery has been designated historic by the state.
