Alsop family cemetery

May 29th, 2014

This tiny family burial ground, with its first interment dating back to 1691, has been swallowed up, and is entirely surrounded, by Calvary Cemetery (aerial view), making it a little enclave of Protestantism in a vast Catholic necropolis. This brings to mind the old Betts family burial ground, now encompassed by the Jewish Mount Zion Cemetery.
