  • History: Grandson of the founder of Gordon, Patick A. Bergin (1888-1964). While transcribing this cemetery, I met the wife of the last curator of this cemetery. Her name is Donna M. Burke. Her husband, Robert Wilcox Burke (1916- 2000), traced back through all the musty papers to find as many of the unmarked graves and who was buried within. He placed on each grave a headstone labeled UNKNOWN for each grave he could not put a name on. So, if anyone out there knows of a burial that is not marked, you can email me or contact Gordon at the number above and give that information. Your help would be most welcome.
