Mt. Calvary Cemetery, Raton, New Mexico

This Page last updated on .

On 28 Apr 2004, I visited the Mt. Calvary Cemetery at Raton. It was my first trip there. I tried to find as many of the people whose names I recognized. Here are  photos of those tombstones. For a full report of the trip that Sally and I took to Santa Fe, Raton and Dawson, click here. For the Dawson Cemetery visit, click here.

In Aug of 2008 during the Dawson Reunion, I had a second chance to visit the cemetery. I've added photos from that trip.

The cemetery is well maintained and fenced. It is still in active use.

My great great uncle Teridano diTella.
Teridano's descendents live in Italy. I am in contact with his grandson, Giuliano Colajanni.

Then there was a row of Carlini graves along side of the entrance road.
Carmine Carlini (1881-1935) and Carmina diTella (1885-1965)
According to a report by the Phelps-Dodge Co., Carmine was listed
as a "Fatality at Dawson Mine 23 May 1935".
Mike Carlini
Son of Carmine Carlini and Carmela diTella
I found an entry in the St.Patrick's Catholic Church death records:
"Michael Carlini - Killed in France, buried there 8/20/44, born in Dawson, buried 9/18/44 #38124719, died of wounds 8/17/44, Staff Sgt."
Ernest Carlini and Lizzie (Elisabetta) Carlini
Children of Carmine Carlini and Carmina diTella
Records from Dawson show Ernesto, born 10 Apr 1918 and died 28 Jun 1918, 4m, buried in Dawson Cemetery
Ralph R. Carlini
Reusedo Raffaele Carlini
Son of Carmine and Carmina diTella
Born in Dawson, baptised in Trinidad, CO 1912.
Married Flora Mae Kukuk 23 Dec 1949 (from records of St.John the Baptist Church).
The records at St. John the Baptist Church in Dawson only go back to 1917.
Mary A. Carlini, daughter of Amico Carlini (brother-in-law of Carmine Frazzini) and Mary Ricci
Died 25 Dec 1942
I have a copy of her 1942 death certificate. Mary died at the Dawson Hospital. She was born 18 Jan 1920. She worked as a stenographer at the chain grocery office in Dawson. Death reported by Danny R Carlini, her brother. She lived in house #1205 in Dawson.
Alfonso Carlini and Ermina Carlini (daughter of Carmine Carlini and Carmela diTella).
I don't know if or how Alfonso Carlini is related to other Carlini's families other than through this marriage.
The marriage record from 19 Sep 1931 lists Alfonso's parents as Pietro Carlini and Filomena Colaizzi. Alfonso was born in San Pietro Avellana.
Ernesto Carlini
Son of Carmine Carlini and Maria Carmina diTella
Mildred Carlini, daughter of Carmine Carlini and Carmina diTella
There is no date of death on her tombstone so I don't know if she is buried here.
Mildred Carlini Ghiglieri died on 12 Sep 2009 and is now buried next to her husband. You can read her obituary in my family tree data base.
Carmine diLorenzo
I don't know how this Carmine fits in.
I don't think he is the Carmine diLorenzo that my grandfather went to live with in Aurora, MN in 1905.
 I did find him in the records from SPA:
Carmine Antonio diLorenzo; born 1 Aug 1878
    f: Giuseppe, 35y           m: Maria Domenica Carlino
Ellis Island has a 1909 record for Carmine diLorenzo, 30y, going to Pueblo CO.
(would have been born about 1879) Wife in SPA, Maddalena diCossi (?)
The 1920 census shows a 33y old Carmino Lorenzo, wife Elisabetta and daughter Antonetta (born in Minnesota) in Routt CO (Carmino would have been born about 1887). This is the Carmine diLorenzo that my grandfather, Emiliano Frazzini, went to live with when he come over to Aurora, MN in 1905.
The 1920 census shows a Carmine diLorenzo 29y, single, in Dawson (would have been born in 1891).
I have found that Carmine Antonio diLorenzo and I are 3rd cousins 2 times removed.  Our common ancestors are Michelangelo Carlino and Rosa Vincenza Morelli. Look at the family tree for details.
