St. Francis Xavier

I took these photos in September of 2017, and set them aside to post here but never got around to it. This cemetery is called St. Francis Xavier. It didn't used to be called this. The sign is new. Even on Find-A-Grave, it didn't used to be called this. But I'm having trouble recalling what it was called.
