    The first Catholic Cemetery in New York State was established in the year 1785 was located on the corner of Barclay and Church Streets, the present location of St. Peter's Church..."Ecumenism, a rare occurrence in those days, played a major role in the establishment of the first Catholic Cemetery in New York.  This tract of land which measured 100 x 125 feet was first leased and then sold to the Catholic Congregation in New York by Trinity Episcopal Church. Prior to 1785 a portion of the Trinity Church graveyard itself was reserved for the burial of Catholics.
    In 1786, a portion of the new cemetery was set aside for the erection of the first Catholic Church in New York, St. Peter's, and when the first Church building was replaced in 1836 with a new structure, most of the remains in the cemetery were moved to the cemetery at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral on Mott Street..."

It was also to serve as the cathedral church of the new diocese. The corner-stone was laid 8 June, 1809, but, owing to the hard times and the war of 1812 with England, the structure was not ready for use until May, 1815... It was then far on the outskirts of the city, and, to accustom the people to go there, Mass was said at St. Peter's every other Sunday. The ground on which it was built was purchased in 1801 for a graveyard, and the interments in it from that time until the cemetery was closed in 1833 numbered 32,153..."
