|Ann Dunkleberger||RE: Harold and Gladys Martz|
Thanks Jeff. My long time friend is Sara Martz. We have been trying for years to find the connection in our family because she knows she is related to the Cox family. My husband's gggrandfather was David Cox who married Ruth French. They are buried at Pine Summit Cemetery. If you ever find a connection please let me know.
|Ann Dunkleberger||Harold and Gladys Martz|
Jeff, I saw you posted about Harold and Gladys and wondered when I saw your name if you might be related to my husband. His mother was Ocie Cox. We have been trying to find family members since we are now the oldest members of our family living. I have done a lot of family history and would love to share what I have. Please write when you can.
What is stranger is they just found this cemetery within the last couple years. There is no sign or road to get to it. My husband and sister wanted an adventure and they ot it. They had to cross a small river and walk through woods but i finally got them there. Luckily they had it shown good on a map. There is construcion going on near it an that is how it was found. So they kind of made their own road around it so people can get to it. But there isnt many who know of it. Thanks for the request and the adventure. My sister loved it.

I would like a copy if you would like to send it.
I was by the Swackhammer Cemetery the other day. I have been following the project in the papers and I also belong to the coalition that meets at the historical society along with a couple of your Swackhammer cohorts. I to have dozens of early ancestors buried in these little abandoned burial grounds in Hunterdon and Warren Counties.

Thanks for the information for Elizabeth "Hoppock" Cramer. I've updated her memorial and added the additional info to our cemetery records.
My goal has been to find as much information on the people buried here in Cherryville and thanks to people like yourself we are getting more info than I had ever hoped for. It has been a worth while project. Instead of a bunch of names and dates we now know the history of Cherryville, Blacksmiths, Carriage makers, Inn keepers and store keepers.
Thanks again and Happy Holiday's,
Cherryville Mountainview Cemetery

You're very welcome for the photo. Glad I could help. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

I took a picture of the plot but can'y seem to find it since I downloaded the photo from my camera to my computer.
For you information, a headstone costs about $5oo installed.

Yes, Jeff, that information is helpful in gravesites that were "close to one another" in 1912 should still be "close to one another" a hundred years later, although they have a whole new numbering scheme now.
The cemetery has a digital directory of all the gravesites they have found (meaning, mostly, according to the caretaker, that if the gravestone is flat, as they tend to be for "free" veterans stones, they may not appear in the directory). I have found some of these flat stones for other names, and often, they are VERY hard to find under overgrown lawn grass.
I was able to cross reference that list with all of the names on findagrave.com. That, and a walk through every known section of the cemetery with Woodruffs in it allowed me to photograph all of the sites that weren't previously photographed, compare and combine the known families and, through a process of elimination, I feel 99.999% confident that I have found the two Dawsons and Margaret. As far as I can tell, there just isn't anyone else these stones could belong to, Theodore being the name that the son was known by, which makes sense, and his mother and father who could not belong to any of the other stones in the graveyard.
I hope that you will be able to accept this result, and my belief that this is entirely true. Best Regards, Michael Cotton, Sparta, NJ
