Search Housel Family Burying Ground:

A family burying ground was mentioned in the 1761 will of John Housel: "...excepting thereout the burying-ground for the use of the family forever." This wording implies that the burying-ground was already in existence in 1761.

According to the Hunterdon Historical Newsletter, in the September 1889 issue of Dr. Larison's "Ringos" magazine J. M. Hagaman wrote, "Upon a knoll about 100 yards north of the northeast corner of my plantation was, a few years ago, a graveyard in which were at least 100 graves. The spot triangular in shape is upon a track owned by W.R. Smith. The plowman has encroached upon it, from year to year, until every grave has been obliterated." He thought it was the Hagaman graveyard. It seems also to have been the Housel graveyard previously. Late generations of Housels were buried nearby at Larison's Corner/Amwell Ridge.

The location is near the Hunterdon Fairgrounds and "the Lambertville jug handle off Route 202 South...just north of Frontage Road."
