Roxbury St. Joseph Cemetery (defunct)

Once of the oldest Catholic cemeteries in Boston  (located in Roxbury, which was a town by itself before it was annexed to Boston) was Saint Joseph cemetery located near the Roxbury highlands.   All those interred there were relocated   (see enclosed link)  about 2007 to Calvary Cemetery in Waltham.  I called the office in charge and they advised me that there are no cemetery burial records of any kind.   It was one of the earliest Catholic parishes in (what is now) Boston.  The parish consisted largely of Irish and German immigrants who had settled in Roxbury.
