  • Sacred Heart (Castleton, NY)
  • Blessed Sacrament (Hague, NY)
  • St. Pius X (Loudonville, NY)
  • Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Albany, NY)

Summary of Abuse Allegations against Father Cabell B. Marbury:

Father Cabell B. Marbury spent most of his 50-year career as an educator at Bishop Maginn High School in Albany. He served as assistant pastor at three area parishes in the 1960s. He also taught theology, was bandleader, theater director, guidance counselor and director of guidance, and vice principal. He stayed at the school as a volunteer chaplain and member of the school board after his 2009 retirement. He died in 2014.

According to media reports, Father Marbury was investigated for sexual abuse of minors at least three times from 1993 to 2015. The original allegation in 1993, resulted in an “agreement for counseling assistance,” the diocese said.  A Diocesan Review Board investigation of an abuse allegation made against him in 2003 found “no reasonable ground” to substantiate the claim. Furthermore, the board had “insufficient information to make a decision” in a 2015 case.

In August 2020, he was accused in a lawsuit filed under the NY Child Victims Act of sexually abusing a 9-year old boy, from 1974 to 1976, while visiting St. James parish. The abuse allegedly occurred in the sacristy, rectory and music practice room. 

In October 2020, Father Marbury’s name appeared on the Diocese of Albany’s list of clergy credibly accused of sex abuse of minors.

Summary of Sexual Abuse Allegations Against Father Eleuterio Ramos:

Fr. Eleuterio V. Ramos, also known as “Father Al,” admitted to sexually abusing at least 25 boys. During his tenure, he worked in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, the Diocese of Orange, and Tijuana, Mexico. According to media reports, when the Diocese of Orange was created in 1976, Father Eleuterio Ramos was already under the doctor’s psychological care. Multiple allegations of taking children to inappropriate movies and possessing pornography followed during the 1970s and 1980s.

In August 1985, Fr. Ramos was accused of abusing a 17-year-old boy. He was placed on leave in and sent to St. Luke Institute, an institution known for treating priests accused of child sexual abuse. Bishop Johnson provided him with a car and arranged for him to begin ministry in the Diocese of Tijuana, Mexico, where he was put in charge of a children’s ministry. In 1991, he was removed from ministry. In 2005, the Diocese of Orange settled several child sexual abuse claims against Father Ramos.

In 2017, a widow filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the Dioceses of Orange and Los Angeles, alleging that her husband killed himself in 2015 because of depression over having been molested by Father Ramos when he was a 10-year old boy from 1975 to 1978, while Father Ramos worked at St. Joseph’s in Placentia, California. The suit states that he was an altar boy and served sacraments during Mass with Father Ramos, who began sexually molesting him and warned him not to tell anyone.

Father Ramos, abusing his role as a priest and mentor, “entrapped (the boy) in his web of sadistic abuse while simultaneously alienating (him) from his family and support system,” the suit states. He carried with him a sense of violation and guilt “until he could not do so any longer” and killed himself in March 2015, the suit states.

According to the lawsuit, Father Ramos was ordained by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and had already admitted to that body that he had molested one or more boys before he was sent to St. Joseph’s in Orange County. Both archdioceses failed to properly supervise Father Ramos and provide warnings to the victim’s family of his “dangerous propensities and unfitness,” the lawsuit states.

Father Ramos died in March 2004 without being prosecuted. He was included in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles’ list of priests accused of sexual misconduct involving minors and was included in a press release issued by the Diocese of Orange in 2004 as a priest accused and removed from ministry. Church documents released in 2005 as part of a $100 million settlement between the Orange Diocese and 90 alleged molestation victims said that he had admitted to molesting at least 25 boys. The documents show the extent of the cover-up perpetrated by those in power, even dating back to when they were priests or auxiliary bishops.

Father Ramos was eventually dubbed the “King of County Pedophiles” by at least one reporter because he had so many victims. Father Ramos’ personnel file was released in January 2013. He was considered the worst-ever pedophile priest in the history of the Diocese of Orange, known to frequently invite other people to rape children while he took photos.
