RE: Anthony Weber
I have become interested in the Revolutionary War era Presbyterian cemeteries. I'm helping one in Westfield NJ two document the websites it uses by providing copies of photos I've taken there. And I'm helping the one in Elizabeth, put together a display on some of its more interesting stones. Lately, I've taken to collecting photos of stones that have been signed by the artists that carved them. I find it all very fascinating.

RE: Anthony Weber Grave
Actually that spot is not as noisy as you might think since the roadbed is up much higher than even the top of the photo.

Interesting about you living in Newark and Linden, since I am in Elizabeth. We're practically neighbors.

RE: Anthony Weber Grave
As to the military marker, if one had been ordered at the time, there should be one, but it is not automatically put there by the government.

RE: Anthony Weber Grave
You're very welcome for those photos. It is disappointing to me when there is no marker. You should call the cemetery to see exactly which side of the numbered marker the grave actually is on. If I had to guess, I would say it is behind the Kolbash headstone where that reddish stone is. Sometimes a plot has up to 8 grave with 4 in front and 4 in back. Since Anthony's plot is W-423-6, grave 6 should be behind and perhaps to the left of grave 3. It is possible that Anthony is buried in one of the marked graves but without his name on the marker. That isn't uncommon.

As to having other ashes buried there, you'll have to find out who the owner of the plot is. If it is Anthony, then the executor or administrator of his estate would have to permit it, if it is at all possible.

The wall behind the plots is the foundation for the Garden State Parkway, which runs right through the cemetery. You can use Google maps for a satellite picture of the layout. Anthony's grave would be on the eastern side of the road about 50 graves from the back end of the cemetery.

I cropped out parts of the photo above the tops of the headstones because the wall is not the kind of background I would like for these photos.

If you need any more help, just let me know.
