|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.

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

Hello! Regarding your entry for Ann Springsteen Brooks. I was wondering how you knew the name or death date of her husband (in 1828).

I thought you might want to use some of this info for Thomas' memorial. I found it interesting.
New York Herald, Tuesday, May 31, 1881, P. 10
General Thomas D. Hoxsey, an active and prominent politician of New Jersey, died at his residence at Haledon, near Paterson, yesterday, aged sixty-six years. He was born in Williamstown, Mass., and when about twenty-one years of age went to Paterson, and after serving as clerk in a dry goods store for some years, embarked in that business himself. He subsequently read law, and in 1846 and 1847 was elected to the State Assembly as a democrat. He was afterward elected State Senator for three years. He changed his politics in 1860, and as a republican, was elected to the office of county clerk, which he held for five years. He was the greenback candidate for Governor in 1877 and again in 1880. He received the appointment of General of the Militia of New Jersey shortly before the war and held that position for several years. He was counsel in a number of important lawsuits, prominent among which is the Van Houten will case, which has been in the courts for more than twenty years, and in which over $1,000,000 are believed to be involved.

I feel that by working with each other we can get this right. We each contribute from a different source allowing us to add more info than if we used just one of those sources. I think we are compiling a great store of information for relatives of the people who are buried in this beautiful, historic cemetery.
Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the info. Cindy & I have resolved the Henry Scott issue amicably (we are friends -- no problem there).
I had a memorial for Julia Scott Ward & her husband Martin Luther Ward. I linked Julia to the parents.

|deb michaels||Hird transfers!|
I just signed on and noticed I was managing many more memorials than last sign on!~After the first transfer I was not intending to ask for the rest but I agree they should be linked! Thank so much for your time & efforts! Looks like I will be a busy bee linking them all together~ hopefully attracting a few closer family members? So pleased to be on the site and again thankful for all you have contributed in other peoples honor!
|deb michaels||Henry Edward Hird b 1884|
THANK YOU so much for the transfer!~ I have added a short bio & additional information on site honoring Samuel Hird!~I would like to try to link the other family members buried here if possible & to add additional "bios" and information as they are a very interesting family! I have them in my virtual but since I do not manage any of them I cannot link so maybe you can add a link to Samuel's son who is Henry Edward? I will try to message other memorials of the extended Hird family who are also buried here:) Again much appreciation for all your efforts!
|deb michaels||Hird, Samuel b 1850|
I was surprised to find your Memorial to my Great Uncle's~Grandfather here! Although I am a distant relation I am recently involved in Geneology and have accrued many family members on my Tree on the GENI website. I am also trying to build Memorials to them here & before I begin adding names I am always searching!~Happy to find someone who has been kind enough to add their name already:)
I have all the information needed to "fill in the blanks" on Samuel's site (other family members are buried here as well)If you would like me to forward that information to you to add/update I will gladly do that~or you can do a transfer if you prefer!
Thanks again for your interest in those past~
|Wendy McLean ||Thomas McLean|
Hi there, I live in New Zealand and have been trying to trace my great great grandfather Thomas McLean. He was a mariner and married my gggrandmother Mary Brynn in New Zealand. They had a son in 1876 but Thomas then disappeared, believed to be lost at sea. Thomas was born in Scotland in 1853 to parents Margaret and Thomas snr who were both born in Ireland. I believe they emigrated to New Jersey and Thomas snr worked in the Silk Mill. I firmly believe the McLean family grave you have posted of Thomas and Margaret McLean are my ggggrandparents. I have found a census record of a Thomas McLean in 1930 whose details match my lost Thomas but have not been able to find a death or burial record for him. His daughter and son in law are buried in another cemetery in Passaic county.
I am wondering if Thomas jnr is buried in the McLean family plot at the Cedar Lawn Cemetery with his parents.
Sorry for the long message, but I wonder if anyone is able to help?
Many thanks, Wendy McLean

Thanks for the additional information AND the new photos! The restoration work is coming along nicely. I included the "history" of the headstone in the bio. I thought it might be of interest to anyone who is related to the Post family.
