Shreve's Cemetery

  • Near Corner of Blue Anchor Rd and Mays Landing Rd. (Route 73), Camden County, New Jersey, USA
  • 18 Memorials added (78% photographed)

The cemetery is located on the right side of Blue Anchor Road just before you stop at the intersection of Mays Landing Road (Route 73 South). This is probably all that is left from the original Blue Anchor Cemetery. Supposedly John Shreve put up a new fence starting with the row of gravestones of Maddox's and Albertson's, his relatives, and continued the fence out toward Route 73 thus creating a new cemetery. John Shreve added columns to the entrance of the cemetery and that has his name upon them. Rumor has it that a farmer nearby had cattle running through the cemetery thus destroying alot of the old stones so John erected a new fence creating a new cemetery.
Alot of folks on Findagrave have this cemetery mixed up with the Greenwood Cemetery which is also in the Blue Anchor area. The Greenwood Cemetery and the Blue Anchor Cemetery are the same cemetery but they are not the original Blue Anchor Cemetery that was once located in the area near the Blue Anchor Inn.
