Emmitsburg, Maryland

St. Joseph's Cemetery at the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton:  Here lie the remains of the Sisters of Charity, a religious order founded by Elizabeth Ann Seton. The idea of a life ordered by religious principles is reflected in the perfectly ordered graveyard where the sisters and their directors are buried.  The Very Reverend Francis J. Dodd was the Director of the Daughters of Charity for 33 years, until his death in 1962. [2010]
