Colver Family Burial Ground
Schooleys Mountain
Morris County
New Jersey  USA

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Located on the old Robert Colver farm, this was the Colver family's burial ground from about 1749 until at least 1858. The location was identified by Edward Raser who visited the site in 1971. He noted a residential home under construction on the property, and, at that time only one gravestone was found.

From a prior reading 12 Feb. 1938 there were nine gravestones found. Further, in 1948 John Colver's stone was found to be still standing. Considering the number of Colver generations and allied families who lived at this property there must be other burials unmarked and where the gravemarker has been lost. Relying on Edward Raser's description of the location given in Volume 49 #1 of The Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey, this old cemetery is found on private property at Latitude 40.790783 and Longitude -74.82355.
