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:

Lewallen-Old Ashley cem.
Thanks for connecting John to his mother.

I have been slowly photoing all stones in the Old Ashley cem. And adding them to all your's and other memorials. I would like to thank you for all your time and the hard work you have done on the cem's. It's helped us and I'm sure plenty of other people. Thru the years we had passed Old Ashley cem. on our way to Ashley. Never noticing the cem. in the woods. We knew the Lewallen family had to be there some where.

There are some corrections to be made to your memorials. I'll start pointed them out over this winter. I have done whole cem's before. I know the work it takes. And have made plenty of mistakes.

Thanks and have a nice Thanks giving,

Found the gps, sorry
Hi, I hadn't known to look at the tab on the cemetery's main page, I found the gps coordinates. I should be able to get there with them. Thanks anyway and sorry to have bothered you.

Would you please help me find cemetery in Port?
Hello, I noticed that you have helped create memorials from the southern NJ area. I'm trying to locate Union Cemetery in Port Republic, Atlantic County. Googling sends me to Mays Landing instead, and OnStar has gotten me lost on two separate occasions, trying to find it. There are no gps coordinates or any info on its location on the cemetery's page, and I'm at a loss. This is the cemetery, I have family there.

Thanks so much for your time.

Sarah Hand
Hi, I was looking at the Hand Family cemetery. Sarah Hands site says she's the wife of Jesse Hand 1738 but it also says she was born in 1726. Everything I find says his wife was born in around 1744. Was wondering if you're sure about the dates. If it is his wife her maiden name is Leaming. Thanks Mary Jane

Per the History book of Port Elizabeth, New Jersey page 35 it lists Elizabeth's date of death as 25, Nov is the web address to check it out....

RE: Fratz
Thank you so much! The next time I am in the area, I will definitely stop by and check out the museum. The Fratz family migrated to Egg Harbor City from Philadelphia, probably as part of the German influx, but then tragedy hit, and many of them died, and most of the rest returned to Philadelphia within ten years. I find that whole bit of history fascinating. Thanks again for the transfers!
