About the cemetery

Mt. Angel Abbey Cemetery

Marion County
Established ca. 1884
ca. 173 burials


Located on the grounds of Mt. Angel Abbey, this cemetery is the resting place for members of the Catholic Benedictine community located at the abbey. While most of the burials are for clergy associated with the abbey, at least five burials are for lay individuals, including Peter and Sophie Stockel and Margaret and Andre Robl. Apparently, they were parents of clergy connected to the abbey.
