Van Buskirk Cemetery (defunct)

  • Constable Hook, Bayonne, Hudson County, New Jersey, 07002 USA
  • 104 Memorials added (1% photographed)

Once located in the yard at the rear of the Van Buskirk Homestead located at Constable Hook, Van Buskirk's Point (Van Boskerck) and Birds Point
Bayonne City (est. 1869), Hudson County, New Jersey.

Some histories and even stories of today confuse the two burial grounds that were once located at Constable Hook in the City of Bayonne. Although the "New Cemetery" or "Constable Hook Cemetery" still exists today the Van Buskirk burial grounds which was located by their homestead are longer visible. It is believed that between 200 and 300 Van Buskirk family members, friends and neighbors were buried at this site. Some of the remains were removed after Standard Oil acquired the property. But many of the unmarked graves and the graves of the families who were unreachable were left at the site. In a 1947 newspaper article remains were noted to be seen at the site.

Some removals were also made to the Moravian Cemetery in Staten Island.
