|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Branchville Cemetery Association was organized in 1851, recorded in 1868.
An old burial ground is located within the cemetery, a section believed to be a pauper field. No records are available to name the occupants of the 68 six inch square numbered cement markers lined in rows.
There are also names of families that have dates prior to the opening of the cemetery in 1869. It is believed these families have been moved from their original burial locations to the Branchville Cemetery. (list in front of book) Some records prior to 1950, were either not kept or destroyed?
The Branchville Cemetery Association has published a book (134 pages)of names as complete as possible (some with additional information not on the cemetery stones)as of June 2005. A list of additions and corrections is planned for 2008. Please write to The Branchville Cemetery Association, P.O. Box 582, Branchville, NJ 07826-0582 - for cost & copies.
