EHC cemetery entries have reconciled FindAGrave files with the records of the City Clerk. The EHC Historical Society has a spreadsheet of the original 8 blocks of the cemetery and digital copies of the Block/Section maps. We still get requests from families whose records indcated interment here, but no records can be found. There are also many headstones not recorded in the Clerk's records, which apparently are not complete between 1860 and 1900.

Family (Cavileers & Maxwells) in the Atlantic/Burlington County area since 1700s.
Married Patricia A. O'Brien (Longmeadow, MA). Two sons: Mark Jr., James; two grandchildren.

In OCT2014, I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. On 12OCT2015 I underwent an autologous stem-cell transplant at Jefferson Hospital. I am undergoing a maintenance chemotherapy that will be 24 x 21-on-7-off sequences of Revlimid ending in 2018. Spring 2016 will enable me to return to most of my former activities, including Find-A-Grave.

Among my family trees are:



Anyone who wants to use my info/photos for personal/family use GO AHEAD. Any others, just add a credit line below it.

Before you ask me to change an "unknown" birthdate to one that you calculated, know your degree of uncertainty. To change a year, the age on the headtone must include years AND months. Without both the uncertainty is +/- one year and will not be changed.

Please note: I do look at corrections sent to me, just not always the day you send it.

RE: Charles H Caverly
I just noticed that I also have a memorial for Harvey Caverly in Fairview Cemetery, b. 1876, d. 1966 also with a grave photo.

RE: Charles H Caverly
I have a memorial #89005072 for Charles H Caverly in Fairview Cemetery, same year of birth, death in 1889 rather than 1900. I have an edit request to add the middle name Harvey, which I have so far not accepted, because I have no information that tells me this is the correct Charles H Caverly, although it seems like quite a coincidence to have two Charles Caverly's with such similar dates. He was married to Elizabeth R Gilmore. They are in the 1880 census of Pike county, MO. After his death, Elizabeth married Henry Tate Unsell. There is a grave photo of their grave in Fairview Cemetery. All this is to get to the question: what do you think? Is there two Charles Caverly's, or are your memorial & mine actually the same person?

Miller Cemetery in New Gretna. I edited the dates for her, but somehow I must have also hit the country born button. I was having slow computer issues and when I hit send for the edit, I noticed it also read Albania from the drop down menu where there was nothing before. It had already sent but I couldn't stop it. My edit is waiting approval (from you, I assume) and although the dates are right, Albania is wrong. Not sure if you can only approve half of the edit, or if you have to deny the whole thing and then I can resubmit it if you'd like. Sorry!

RE: Eleanor Hurley #115734072
Mark, please tell me exactly how you want me to edit her memorial. I'm not too good at guessing, and it is not apparent (at least, to me) in your message.

Thanks, Don

That is confusing for sure. There should be no Benneville DeWees with those dates and I removed him. It was supposed to be Benneville Hoch who was already there. Ann Wagner duplicated Benneville and Susan Hoch and I asked her to correct. I don't know about her memorial for Susan Dewees.

I sent an email with a pdf attachment to this morning. Did you get it? It contains an explanation for my rejection of your correction.
