The early cemetery history of Brown County is one of my pet projects.The three oldest cemeteries in the county were Shantytown, St. John's, and what was know as "Old Green Bay". Shantytown was located on the Fox River just north of the area that is now occupied by Eve's Supper Club.In the late 1800's the river was starting to take its toll on the graves, (bodies were starting to float down river), so they were all moved.Almost 100 % of them were moved to Allouex Cemetery.No records were kept of the names or of where they were placed.
"Old Green Bay Cemetery" was located at the intersection of what is now East Mason and Webster Avenue.About 95 % of these burials were moved to Woodlawn Cemetery.These transfers began in about 1867 and were completed by 1892.
St.John's Cemetery was originally located at what is now the intersection of Washington and Adams streets.This is now the site of Green Bay Fire Station #1.There are two stones there to dedicate the site.This cemetery was in use from the late 1820's until about 1838.No records exist that indicate whaen these graves were moved or where they were moved to.
All transfers into Allouez Cemetery have no indications as to where they originally came from and many of them do not have markers.Those that do have markers may have them incorrectlly placed.
When you look at the older records of Woodlawn Cemetery you will see notations that it is an "Re-Interement". (spelling?)If these dates are between 1865 and 1898 then you can assume they were transfers for "Old Green Bay Cemetery".
When you look at the books in the Brown County Library you will have to remember that Allouez Cemetery is from an actual walking of the cemetery.Woodlawn Cemetery is taken from the actual records in their offices.Both were done by the Bay Area Genealogy Society in about 1976.
I wish my information could be more positive but such is the case with cemetery history in Green Bay.If I can be of further assistance please feel free to contact me.
