|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Founded in 1911, this is the first and only cemetery of the Ukrainian Catholic Church of the Assumption. The cemetery is located on Florida Grove Road in Hopelawn (Woodbridge Township) NJ. The current church is located at 684 Alta Vista Place, Perth Amboy, NJ.
Earliest parishioners (late 1880s to ca. 1911) of the Assumption Parish were buried in the early part (back) of the original section of St. John the Baptist Cemetery which is located on the southwest corner of Pfeiffer Blvd. and Florida Grove Road in Perth Amboy.
Note: USGS and commercial maps have incorrectly labeled this cemetery together with the adjacent Calvary Cemetery as being composed of entirely the Calvary Cemetery.
In addition, the St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church Cemetery at the southwest corner of Pfeiffer Blvd. and Florida Grove Road in Hopelawn, NJ is incorrectly indicated on maps as "Ukrainian Cemetery."
This error regarding St. John the Baptist Cemetery as the NON-existent "Ukrainian Cemetery" has continued in Find a Grave as of October, 2012 but the error has been sent to FindAGrave for resolution by another contributor.
