Regarding the Glades Cemetery - Since 1934 there has been little record keeping of the cemetery and those records disappeared many years ago. |
The New Providence Cemetery Company was formed in 1976 to oversee the care of the cemetery, after the church was sold.
As of August 2013, we now have a new map, which lists all known burial locations at this time. We have an Index to accompany the map to make searching easier.
We have spent the last three years working diligently on the records, erecting headstones, etc. The earliest burial known at this time is in 1791.
We have been working with the Office of Veterans Affairs to acquire military headstones to honor our Veterans whose headstones are illegible or no longer standing. We have had 3 news ones approved so far.
The officers of the New Providence Cemetery Company are: James Hartley, President; Paul McMinn, Treasurer; Shelley McMinn Anderson, Secretary.
Regarding the Laurel Point Cemetery - the records for Laurel Point are lacking in information or are non-existent. We are restoring those records and are adding over 3,000 memorials to f.a.g. for Laurel Point Cemetery. We will also be adding headstone photos to those memorials. A map and index will be made and hopefully available by sometime in 2015. Please be patient - this will take some time.
