Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been the superintendent of the Cherryville Mountainview Cemetery in Hunterdon County, New Jersey since 1991. My Father was the superintendent from 1980 to 1991. I worked for him as a caretaker during that time. Our cemetery was opened in 1850. As of Dec. 12, 2010 the entire cemetery is listed here. If you are a family member or have more info for anyone buried here I'd be glad to add it or transfer the memorial to you if you are a descendant.

My families are: McCrea, Bunn, Porter, Welch and Schamp/Schomp

RE: Allegar and German
They look really good. Regarding Elmer German, I usually put the place of death in the pull-down slots instead of the place of residence. It's what would appear on his death certificate. The details explaining Trenton are in the obituary to explain that he didn't live in Trenton. Just a suggestion....

RE: McConnell's
Thanks for letting me know. I also type in the entire obituary into the older ones for the same reason. I've actually been looking for someone in the Frenchtown Cemetery, as I found that cemetery needed help bringing it up to date in Find A Grave. As I find other obituaries, I can't resist capturing them and passing on the information. I believe it's a matter of bits and pieces. Every bit we add is a contribution. Hope you're out enjoying the sunshine today! Rhonda

RE: Annie Bryan
I don't know if they are brothers, but likely. These are spouses to my people, so I didn't research their line.

Transfer memorials...I don't see any reason why not?
I have about 40 or so now. What's a few more? This Marshall line has been tough. Just so many of them. And likely when I move up one more level to siblings of John T, I will find that all the Marshalls are related. Just working each of his children forward has been a challenge, but I think I've got most figured out.
There is still that John Barton thing. I've sent a note asking about the basis for the memorial, but no reply yet? Think he's buried at Nixon / Craven Burying Ground and again, this just doesn't fit. Most everyone else is buried at Cherryville or Prospect Hill. I do have at least one couple buried at Nixon, so there is still a possibility?
Transfer do you want to do this? Should I left you know which ones?
And if you would like to check out my family tree, Ward Family Tree (3,850+) folks. I've attempted to keep up with making links to siblings / children, but there are just so many. Hell...I'm surprised you're not a Marshall. Haha

Trenton Evening Times - Sep 16,1965
Mrs. Annie D. Bryan
Flemington - Mrs. Annie D. Bryan, a former resident here, died Tuesday in Boca Raton, Fla.
Services will be held Saturday at 2pm at the Holmombe Funeral Home, 147 Main Street, with the Rev. Edward C. Dunbar of the Baptist Church officiating. Interment will be in Cherryville Cemetery. Friends may call Friday evening.

Bill...note the Fla connection. Also, several of the obituaries of her sibling (or at least sibling of Mrs. Robert Bryan) indicated she survives them and reference Miami.

I have not been able to find obit for Robert!

And I should say hello...
We met on one COLD day last year I think. I was wandering the cemetery and I called you on my cell. Your house was across the street and you were kind enough to take me to see the grave to John Trimmer Marshall (1807-1872) and Charity McPerson (1818-1898), my 3x grandparents. I was most appreciative of your help.
Just wish I live a bit closer to make the pilgrimage. If you recall, I live in Annapolis.
Thanks again for taking your time and energy to help me.

RE: Annie Bryan
Sounds good...I'll do my best.
Sep 22, 1954 PAge 4, Trenton Evening Times
Obit - Mrs. Zenas Polhelmus, Flemington - Mrs. Minnie A. Polhemus ....survived by four sisters, Mrs. Howard "Higgins," Mrs. William Evans of Flemington, Mrs. William Bryan of Belleville and Mrs. Robert Bryan of Miami....this is KEY!
I am positive this is Minnie A daughter of Albert C Marshall.
Researching the 4 sister, I've been able to match them all....having identified Robert's spouse Annie as one of Alberts missing children.
Mrs. Howard Higgins is Alice (1876-1955)
Mrs. William Evans is Alberta (1894-1977)
Mrs. William Bryan is Mary (1888-1959)
Mrs. Robert R. Bryan is Annie D (1884-1965)

Then I found Trenton Evening Time article July 7, 1917...First Reunion of Marshall Family. In attendance...Mr. & Mrs. Robert Bryan, Miss Evelyn Bryan, Master Robert Bryan, Jr. along with the other folks I've mentioned above.
Then I found Trenton Evening Times article Sep 12, 1920, page 14...Marshall Family Reunion and again these folks are in attendance. In fact, I've identified all 78 folks except Amy Duckworth who must be married daughter of someone?
Finally, Cherryville Mountainview Cemetery is where John T Marshall is buried, although Albert is buried at Prospect Hill.
Finally there is census records 1910, 1920, 1930 and 1940 that reflect the family unit of Robert, Annie, Evelyn and Robert, Jr.
Do you need more? Seems I came across something else, but have been working this for about a month. How'd I do? I can provide copies of the PDF of the above articles, but I don't know how to attach?
As a side-bar: The is a J Barton of California in attendance and Find-A-Grave suggests this fellow died when he was 9 years old....I don't think so. Obit of Reuben indicated son living in Califorina too. I haven't been able to come up with more, but I feel strongly this is John Barton Marshall, son of Reuben Marshall. I still have more work to do on this before I can say without reservation.
