"Butch" O'Hare Fighting Squadron Six (VF-6), Member of the USS Intrepid Association and the 11th Airborne Association. |
Kathleen Stadtmuller-Gad, Dennis Kolb and I teamed up on area cemetery entries and locations/maps. In June 2010, as part of expanding the information available to visitors of the Roundhouse Museum, we began a walk-through of the EHC cemetery, matching maps and records with local funeral home records. The retrieved information was added to Find-a-Grave. We still need to compare what we found to the interment book of the City Clerk to pick up any interments that do not have memorial monuments.
Family (Cavileers & Maxwells) in the Atlantic/Burlington County area since 1700s.
Married Patricia A. O'Brien (Longmeadow, MA) Two sons Mark Jr., and James.
Besides going to cemeteries in southern NJ, I occasionally get sidetracked to other areas by internet searches of local people. Then my favorite part is locating the cemeteries to create map coordinates and enter those not already in F.A.G. Of course, the best are the trips to places like Hampden Co., MA or Philadelphia and its surrounding counties.
Among the main limbs of my family trees are:
Paternal: ADAMS, CAVILEER, CRAMER, GALE, LEEK, LOVELAND, MAXWELL, McANNEY, SOOY, VANSANT
Maternal: CURRY, KRIEG, TOWNSEND, SCULTHORPE
In-laws: CRUM, O'BRIEN, HASSON, PLUMMER
Anyone who wants to use my photos for personal/family use GO AHEAD. Any others, just add a credit line below.
Please note: I do look at corrections sent to me, just not the day you send it.

Thanks for the transfer of Joseph and Eliza. I'll take good care of them. In case no one else has thanked you for all the good things you're doing, I'd like to thank you on behalf of family researchers. Your work is of great assistance to us all.
|pmac214||RE: Clarks in Folsom|
Hi, Mark. Thanks for the note. I am confused about exactly which cemetery my father and his parents are buried in as there are two small churches side by side. My grandmother, Margaret Clark was given her cemetery plot as a young girl, I think for confirmation. She and my grandfather, Gaston, and an infant child, Melvin, are buried in the very back of the church closest to the school (on the left if your back is to the churches). My father was buried in 2000 and is on the right side of the driveway toward the back. Do the two churches maintain the same name for all graves? If not, which one should I say is the correct site for my family. I apologize for any inconvenience or misinformation.

No problem Mark. Just came across it and noticed it. Thanks for fixing. And yes Yoos will be in your tree. As far as we know he was the only Sooy to land here so every Sooy in this country is related to him.

Thank you very much Mark.
Thank you for the transfer Mark. I appreciate all you do for me. Her daughter Genevieve, from what my Uncle Rollin would tell me, was the family historian back in the 70s & 80s. She died many years ago out west. Wished I would have met her.

Thanks for the transfer of Franklin Knauer. If you are looking to get rid of others, I'd gladly take:
Sarah Strunck Knauer (my ggg-grandmother)
Amos S Knauer (one of her sons)
|Cindy Elschide||If you happen to see|
I am in search of a few graves. If you happen to see the following pleae let me know:
Peter Cavis (Kappes, Kappais, Kappis) born in Germany October 6, 1752 and died in Gloucester County most likely around August 1, 1824. (A coffin maker had his name in a list of coffins made in that year on that date). Family bible states buried in PA Cemetery next to first wife whose name might also be Sarah Cavis. (Found second wife Sarah in Englington)
Daughter Sarah Cavis (1st Hendrickson or Henderson) Widerfelt born June 26, 1919 died June 10, 1850. Her first husband was Tunis Hendrickson or Henderson. I have a death date of 1843 but nothing more for Tunis. Have no idea where he is buried. Sarah had 2 children with Tunis, Sarah & Joseph. I cannot find them. Sarah born about 1839 and Joseph about 1842. 2 more children born to 2nd husband William that moved with their father William Widerfelto Illinois. I have tracked them.
When Sarah died her sister Mary Ann was living with her. Probably to take care of the 4 children. A few months after her death Mary Ann married William Widerfelt.
Mary Ann Cavis Widerfelt born November 5, 1821 and died June 24, 1854. Although I have her death date I cannot find her burial place. She had a daughter with William named Emaline born about 1852 and died September 8, 1857.
I am also looking for the burial place of Sarah & Mary Ann's sister Amy.
Amy Cavis born September 28, 1807 died February 2, 1890 in Camden. She married January 28, 1833 in Philadephia to Carson Swain. He was born 1810 in Lower Cape May County New Jersey and died November 6, 1893 in the same place. I have been unable to find either one.
If you run across any of these burials or info about them could you please let me know?
|Dan Kemp||RE: Arthur/Authur Cemetery|
Hi Max, yes, I created the Arthur Cemetery. My Great (3) Grandfather was Mastin Arthur and his grave is there. I think there's 9 or 10 people buried there and most are related to me in some way.
I've done a few other very old cemeteries that I think would just be forgotten if someone doesn't make a record of them somewhere.
I'm really disappointed in Findagrave.com's response to my e-mails. I've never heard back from them on anything I've written. I'll try it again and see what happens. Maybe since someone else did the Author Cemetery they'll have to be the ones who remove it. Dan

|Everlastings||RE: Eliz. Boies Jourolmon|
Thanks for all your help, Mark. The enlargement with explanation is greatly appreciated. I agree that the two Phelps girls were probably sisters.
According to his death certificate, Dr. Wright was buried in Blandford, but the cemetery name is not given. Please let me know if you locate him. But I see you are in South Jersey, which is where I grew up.
I have been intrigued with son Dr. Wright 81620136, since finding him in a Boies plot. See caption behind his portrait. Even purchased the book "We Have Taken a City" to learn more about him. Interesting bit of history.
|Lori Jo ||Hezekiah Corson at Petersburg|
This is confusing...there are two matching stones, one for Cinderella Corson and the other for Hezekiah Corson. Hezekiah has a bd of 9 sep 1883 (which I sent you an edit email for) and a death date of 26 sep 1907. Either the birthdate is wrong (yours makes more sense!) or this is a son. But...why would the birth and death dates the same as his father's?
I'll root a bit down at the genealogy library.
