In Reply to: vital record lists burial place as: 55 St. Pauls -- where is this? by DM of 33541

I think from the location and timeframe it would be St. Paul's Cemetery in what is now Arlington, MA, which was taken over by the ever expanding Catholic population of Boston/Harvard/Cambridge/Somerville etc. area by the then St Paul's parish. I don't know the original cemetery name.

see this history: A History of St. Paul Church
Cambridge, Massachusetts

" After an initial decade of growth and expansion, the parish undertook its first burst of development in the 1880's, acquiring the cemetery on the Arlington line, building a school and substantially renovating the second-hand church."
