Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born 1947 in Atlantic City Hospital. Egg Harbor City schools and Oakcrest High School. Graduate of University of Dubuque (C'1970) BS Chemistry. Retired NJ State Police Forensic Scientist Supervisor (Drugs and Toxicology) Jun.2012; member of the American Chemical Society, Mid-Atlantic Association of Forensic Scientists, and Society of Forensic Toxicologists. President of the Egg Harbor City Historical Society and Roundhouse Museum (www.ehchs.org). In February 2010, completed a book on early Egg Harbor City for Arcadia Publishing. In September 2010, selected "Citizen of the Year in appreciation for service to our community". Appointed Squadron Historian by the Edward H. "Butch" O'Hare Fighting Squadron Six (VF-6), Member of the Tailhook Association, Member of the USS Intrepid Association, Member of the United States Naval Institute, Life Member of 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 continue to compare our findings with the interment book of the City Clerk to locate 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. (grandson Calvin) 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 it.

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

Ahavas Abram cemetery
Hi Mark,
I noticed you have provided several of the photos for this cemetery.

I would like an address or directions to this cemetery and a phone number for the caretaker.

My goal is to provide my cousins (his grandkids) with the location so they can visit.
I would also like to get the plot location and a photo of the headstone.

Note:I have a photo of the gate that matches this cemetery and is attached to Frank Sigel
Thank you,
Stephen Fox

Mark,

You have George, Johnny, and Mary Henry for this cemetery. Thank you, They are my grandmother's siblings and I have always wondered where they were buried. George was killed while trying to jump a train and hitch a ride, Mary was killed by a hit and run driver in front of Spoony's Marina in Mays Landing, Johnny I am not sure how he died.

RE: Maschke family obits
Possibly. Is it listed twice? Which one needs to be deleted? I only see one when I do a search. Thank you. He is my uncle.

RE: Rupperts
Mark,
It was just a thought. There would be a lot of red tape involved with the two cemeteries and trying to find who placed them there in the first place, to get their approval for the move. I'm sure it's best to just leave it alone.
Thanks

RE: Rupperts
Thanks so much. I clarified his bio with a few things including the church razing. It was Lobach's church that was razed.
Something to consider- wouldn't it be nice for his stone at Mertz be moved beside Catharine. She looks so alone there. If you agree, I might be able to arrange it.
Best regards,
Neil

RE: Abraham Ruppert
Mark,
This is not the medium to continue this discussion but I need to inform you of certain facts.
The existing "old" cemetery was not the original "old" cemetery. The graves were moved when the building was expanded.
I have the full version of the "church" record you mention. It was done in 1986 and was merely a "reading" of the existing tombstones. Ruppert's "new" stone was probably there by then and was read. I doubt he is there but you have to decide how you want future generations to see it.

RE: Abraham Ruppert
Mark,
Did you not read his obituary which gives his burial as St Pauls.?

RE: Ruppert of Dryville?
Mark,
Lobachsville and Dryville are not that far apart. Many families of the two intermarried but never knew them to be separated in burial. Especially when they died close in age.
Enjoy your trip there. The most qualified historian there is Eleanor Dreibilbis but if you were to inquire about the cemetery she would probably tell you to see me. The person who has the cemetery records is Lloyd Hess who lives across from the church. Have not talked to him in years. Was not real co-operative.
