New Jersey USA
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Carmantown Church and cemetery lot, as it appeared on the Hamilton Township tax maps in the mid-20th Century. Note also the right-of-way allowing access to the lot from Harding Highway (U.S. Route 40), the north/south portion of which corresponds approximately to the first 540 feet of Brandywine Road. The size of the lot is shown as one acre. The "half acre for a burial ground" apparently occupied half the lot, and the church, the other. This would explain why the access lane leads to the center of the property. The lot is land-locked today, as the east/west portion of the right-of-way has disappeared from the map, along with the "cemetery" designation.
No tombstones were known to remain - most were originally made of wood or of a field stone which either deteriorated or were displaced or carried away.
At least one Revolutionary War veteran, Job Giberson, is known to have been buried here. Under his grave record, a map showing the cemetery location has been placed as there was no alternative method I could find to post it.
