|Daughter of Dr. Forrest S. Chilton (born Herman, NY), and Elizabether Reik Chilton (born Roaring Springs, PA. Three brothers: Forrest S. Chilton III, member of the US Air Corps, killed over the English Channel in l944; Clive R. Chilton, minister in the Reformed Church of America, active in social programs in his area of Long Island - died in l992; and Thomas J. Chilton - missionary on small islands of the South Pacific prior to returning to USA and working in housing at Hombolt College (CA) and Rutgers University (NJ). Prior to retirement, he was home inspector in NJ for about years. Tom and his wife, Henrietta, have 5 sons. They now live in Deleware.|
Born in 1942 in Patterson, NJ, I have lived my whole life in NJ. The mother of 7 children and 28 grandchildren, I truly enjoy all types of family get-together. Retirement is near, but I still enoy working as a registered nurse at the local hospital that was founded by my parents almost 60 years ago.
My husband and I love to travel and do as much of it as we can. We are also very active in our church, and are just concluding a very busy year as our church turned 275 years old and we had many special activities throughout the year. For the anniversary I got to write a small booklet on the history of the church, and was very excited when an article I wrote was published in the Dec. (2011) issue of "COUNTRY" magazine!

Didn't realize you were so close! Take 23 north to the Newark Pompton Turnpike exit - just past Mother's park and Ride. As you go over 23 and bear to the right, its on your right at the entrance to Burger King. A beautiful old Dutch farm house.
Today I photographed what we could find at the Kip Corwin Cemetery. I am sure there is more just under the creeping myrtle and leaf debris but I didn't want to disturb too much.
In regard to the location...contact Carol D'Alessandro at the Wayne Historical Society. She is the town historian and a treasure trove of knowledge. The farm house is now a business on Newark Pompton Turnpike. The kids have off from school this week. I'll try and remember to drive by. There's not a lot of open land around it anymore - pretty much blacktop or road.

Thanks much for the gravestone photo of Eileen Bailey that I requested. Your photo is very clear, detailed, and legible. We all appreciate it very much.

Thanks for going out & taking a look.
If I understand correctly, many of the stones are weathered & illegible.
I'm going to be ammending my request to just a general overview photo of this area of the cemetery so I can at least see what it looks like and maybe locate it with respect to a Bing Maps bird's eye view or the map in the book on the cemetery that was put out by the Passiac Co. Historical Society in 2002.
I'll include names from Doremus' list for graves numbered before & after Garret's so that if maybe some of those are readable, it will help to zero in on the general area of Garret's grave even if his sone is unreadable.
BTW, since you're close to the history of the church maybe you would know this. I've heard that the church has a collection of Bibles from families in the area.
Since my ancestry in Pompton Plains goes back to the early 1700's many of my ancestors lived there. Is there anywhere that I can find a listing of the Bibles and what families they contain?
With the fire in 1937, listings of births, deaths & marriages in those family Bibles may be the only records that now exist & I'd sure love to know if any of the Bibles, assuming there is a collection of them, are my ancestors.
Thank you for the picture of Jane's headstone
