Bio and Links
I am very interested in the early history of the industrial cities of Paterson and Newark, New Jersey.

My ancestors were silk manufacturers in Paterson, New Jersey, and in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Please feel free to use any and all photographs/information that have been entered. A credit to the "Friends of Cedar Lawn Cemetery" is a courteous and much appreciated gesture, but is not required if you plan to use any of the information and/or photographs for private or commercial purposes.

It is my desire to transfer all memorials of those I entered in Cedar Lawn to their descendants and all those doing their family genealogy.

I added your note about the restoration. Thanks for adding the new photo. I can't always "re-find" the grave.

Garret Van Dien
Mike,

I looked on the Passaic County Historical Society Genealogy Club's website and found a Garret H. Van Dien who died in the Civil War. His name is engraved on the Paterson Soldiers and Sailors monument which is located on the former botanical gardens site (behind Larry Doby Field, off route 20). The link to the website is http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~njpchsgc/mil/soldiers_mon.htm.

Garrett Van Dien #88923544
I did a little research and found Albert G. Van Dien who was married to Abbie Ann Van Riper. He died 10/27/1886. On the 1850 and 1860 census records, there is a younger person, probably their child, named Garrett who was born about 1840. There is also a Civil War soldier named Garrett Van Dien (aka Van Dine) on www.nps.gov. I don't see any headstone requests though related to him but if he died on the battlefield, his body may have been buried right where he fell. I have an ancestor who is buried somewhere in Springfield, Missouri who died in an early battle. It may be that the family made a memorial (cenotaph) for their son.

Other than the concrete facts I found and listed early in my first paragraph, some of this is speculation, of course, and unless you have some record of the family erecting a memorial, you would have no idea what it's purpose may be. FYI -- The first names Albert and Garrett (Dutch) are not usually interchangeable. Albert would have been Aalt in Dutch and Garrett would have been Gerrit in Dutch.

The only other thing I can think of is that there is someone buried in this plot with the first name of Garrett but some other last name. I assume you can check the plot card to see if there are any Garrett's buried there?

I hope this helps. If you want me to search further, I may be able to do so this weekend. I'll be at Lambert Castle (genealogy club) for a few hours.

Charles Otto Hermann Fritzsche
Hi Mike,

I found an article stating that Charles died Jan. 1, 1921 in Dresden, Germany, leaving a 5,000 mark trust fund, the proceeds of the income was earmarked to buy firewood for the poor people of Paterson. Apparently he was an engineer originally from Germany who became an American citizen.

I assume he is buried in Germany. I will remove his memorial and make a note on his wife's stating that he died in Dresden.

Thanks,

Vicki

RE: Rachel Beesley
Actually, this memorial was transferred to you from EOBFindAGrave, formerly EOBAncestry. She no longer lives in this area. Cindy had nothing to do with this one.

I thought she added the date incorrectly because her photo was not very clear. I would put whatever your records have and perhaps make a comment that the inscription on the headstone shows a different date and you are aware of the difference.

Jane Ann Shorrock #104235833
Hi Mike,

I made the change you requested, indicating that Shorrock Shorrock was the father of Jane Ann. This information is supported in the recently published book, "Early Paterson Newspapers: Marriage & Death Notices 1822-1867 Paterson, New Jersey..." (Passaic County Historical Society).

Thomas Scott d. 1870
Hi,
Do you have any additional information on Thomas Scott who died 1870. I know he married Jamima VanZile, 21 April 1816, the same day Nancy Scott md. Sylvester Stin(n)ard. I am looking for relationship between Thomas and Nancy.
Thanks for any help.

Thank you very much for adding Ann recently. Do you happen to have any other information about who she may have been buried with at Sandy Hill? I have been stuck on this branch of the family tree for awhile. Thank you again for your efforts. Jay
