New Jersey USA
|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Located Behind the Holiday Inn Express (North Bound Side)of Route 202 at the intersection of Route 202 and River Road in Branchburg New Jersey, 08876. Recent developments and encroachments have come very close to this secluded cemetery and I must thank the Town of Branchburg for keeping an eye on this Historic parcel of land. There are probably about 100-125 graves here, Many are unmarked. Anyone with information regarding additional burials,(names) please forward to me.
My name is Dennis Zavada. I have only been doing genealogical research for a couple of years, but I discovered that I have a few ancestors buried in the Vosseller Cemetery in Branchburg Park. Although I grew up in Passaic County, NJ I now live in Illinois. I finally had a chance to visit last week. I have seen your Find A Grave page for the Vosseller Cemetery and I wondered if you knew that quite a bit of work has been put into preserving it. I was surprised to find that a local Boy Scout conducted the preservation as his Eagle Scout project. All of the fallen trees and branches have been cleaned up and there is now a fence around the cemetery!
I have some photos of several of the headstones and also the plaque commemorating the preservation effort. I wanted to share these with you and you are welcome to post the cemetery photos on Find A Grave
