nov 6 seminar

My husband, Bob, and I recently gave a presentation at the Hunterdon County Library about the cemeteries of the county for the Tricentennial. Included in this event is a county-wide “scavenger hunt” where participants will return on Nov 6 and collect prizes for their participation at the Main Branch Library. We wanted to make that return lecture an informal meet and greet where anyone interested in getting involved, whether it be in cemetery restoration, work at the Historical Society with cemetery records, working in support of specific cemeteries, or with findagrave. Whatever it may be, and offering a way for like minded cemetery folks to network, share resources, advice, and the like. I am extending an invitation, hoping you are available and would like to come out and share you own expertise with the group. It’s, November 6, 7-9 PM at the Hunterdon County Main Branch Library. If you can make it let me know, thanks.

I have a photo of Maine crew members posing with the ship. I cannot add as the photo quota is filled. See my profile for email address.

Lemuel Hockenbury my grgruncle
Hi Billy,
Wondering how you are related to the Hockenburys? Lemuel's brother is my ancestor, William C. Hockenbury. Do you know anything about their father William Henry Hockenbury's parents that came from Holland? Thanks, Diana

Hi Billy,

I have a relationship chart for you but I will need to send it to you from my e-mail account.

I deleted your response before I thought of what I was doing "Senior Moment" and I cleaned my deleted items. UGH.

Lemuel Hockenbury, inscription
Hi Billy,

Could you please try to read the stone of Lemuel Hockenbury, buried Flemington Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Flemington, Hunterdon, New Jersey.

I have some of it but not all so if you could help I would appreciate it.

Hi Billy!!

Would love to get in touch with you to compare notes. John Ziegler is my great uncle and I've been trying to find more information about him for many years as well.

My grandfather is Jake Ziegler, one of John's younger brothers.

I'm so happy to find you and all the research that you've gathered. Hope to hear from you soon!

Happy Memorial Day!!

Robert Ziegler

Greetings Billy! I so very sorry for the delay on updating your GRRRRUncles memorial. While researching his birthplace I googled his name & realized that you & your family were memorializing his burial in NJ. Congratulations on your success in getting a military marker! John Henry's FAGrave memorial is now yours to update with pictures & links. I have a special place in my heart for the solders & sailors of the "USS Maine" memorial in Key West Cemetery & say a little prayer for their ancestors & give thanks to their memory, for their service & sacrifice to their country. I also served in the enginerooms during my years in the USN aboard submarines on the east & west coasts. We did a few liberty ports in the Carribean, though of course we didn't pull into Havanna. Each year my wife, myself & some buddies go to Key West & we always make a point of visiting the Navy Memorial in Key West Cemetery.
Best Regards,
Thomas A Hawkins MM2/SS USN 79'-85'
