Blackwell's
Just in case they are in your family I wanted to let you know that I added some Blackwell's that are in the First Presbyerian Church of Ewing Cemetery. They came from the Titusville NJ area.

RE: Blackwell's in Pennington Presbyterian Church Cemetery
You will have to come back and do the cemeteries you missed. I guess you did, First Baptist in Hopewell, Highland in Hopewell, Pennington Presbyterian, Harbourton and Mt. Hope in Lambertville. I do hope you were able to visit the towns of Lambertville,NJ and New Hope,PA. Riverview Cemetery in Trenton is also a must visit if you didnt get the chance. I have lived in this area my whole life and the house my GGrand-father built still survives just outside of Hopewell boro. Did you get to walk in the Hunt Family Burial Ground? I have only driven by it. Cornell Burying Ground in NY? I dont believe I have any Blackwell's in the tree. I do have Hunt's for GGGGrand-parents. I really liked your website, my GGgrand-mother was a Cunningham from the Trenton area. Last two thoughts, you may enjoy a book from the Images of America series about Hopewell Valley, and if you havent already chatted with Donna(Lulu)47183637 she has many folks in her tree you might be interested in. Do come back visit the area again. I do volunteer to photo copy obits from the local papers also.

RE: Blackwell's in Pennington Presbyterian Church Cemetery
Thank you, so glad you like the photos. The answer to your question is Sunlight, that cemetery is one of the hardest to get good photos because of the trees. Best time there is between 12:30 and 2:00. When the sun is high it works with the stone and catches the outlines of the words, the difference is remarkable. I see you have photos from all over the country, this can be addicting. I hope you were able to stop and see the Hopewell museum. I take it that the Blackwell's are in your tree. There is a wonderful book my Alice Blackwell Lewis 67901698 about the folks in the area.
