EHC cemetery entries have reconciled FindAGrave files with the records of the City Clerk. The EHC Historical Society has a spreadsheet of the original 8 blocks of the cemetery and digital copies of the Block/Section maps. We still get requests from families whose records indcated interment here, but no records can be found. There are also many headstones not recorded in the Clerk's records, which apparently are not complete between 1860 and 1900.

Family (Cavileers & Maxwells) in the Atlantic/Burlington County area since 1700s.
Married Patricia A. O'Brien (Longmeadow, MA). Two sons: Mark Jr., James; two grandchildren.

In OCT2014, I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. On 12OCT2015 I underwent an autologous stem-cell transplant at Jefferson Hospital. I am undergoing a maintenance chemotherapy that will be 24 x 21-on-7-off sequences of Revlimid ending in 2018. Spring 2016 has enabled me to return to most of my former activities, including Find-A-Grave, but travel distances are still limited to about 60 miles from home.

Among my family trees are:



Anyone who wants to use my info/photos for personal/family use GO AHEAD. Any others, just add a credit line below it.

Before you ask me to change an "unknown" birthdate to one that you calculated, know your degree of uncertainty. To change a year, the age on the headtone must include years AND months. Without both the uncertainty is +/- one year and will not be changed.

Please note: I do look at corrections sent to me, just not always the day you send it.

Hi, I was working on Frey's and I found a Find-A-Grave for Charles Frey b December 11, 1845 d Aug 10, 1930 Memorial # 21228762. On it it says Son of Carl and Catharine (nee Wolbach).
His father is listed so I went to him and he was born Sep 17, 1812 d December 31, 1876
Memorial # 21228716. On this memorial it say He was the son of Charles (Carl) Frey born 1794 Morristown, Pa His mother was Catherine Wolbach.
Are there two Catherine Wolbach's?

RE: Ezra Bierman
The older stones in the old graveyard are very difficult to read. I have been there many times. The parents of my grandmother Catharine Buskirk Scheidt are buried there. Perhaps I will return to look again in nicer weather. Whenever I go there I reflect on your pioneer efforts in bringing the little cemetery to light.
All the best,

RE: Ezra Bierman
Don't go to any trouble for Ezra, please. I saw your letter to someone about your health condition. I am very familiar with the affliction, which affected my sister. Keep in touch.
God bless and keep you steadfast.

[Send Reply] Mrs. Mildred Miller is in Zion Cemetery
On Sep. 23, 2013 and again on 14MAY2014 I sent you the following information about your entry for Mrs. Miller:

"Your entry has been incorrectly placed in the ZION UNITED METHODIST CEMETERY, which is on the opposite side of ZION ROAD and has not received burials since the mid-1970s. Please move your entry to Zion Cemetery and I have removed my duplicate that was created because of the mis-location."

Since then I have blown out my back, been diagnosed with cancer, undergone a stem-cell transplant and still remain in remission for over one year.

Please move her to ZION CEMETERY where she is interred.

Thank you.

RE: Mrs. Mildred Miller is in Zion Cemetery
Dear Mark,

I am sorry to hear about your health condition and pray for your strength. I have also had sadness, My son Brandon Dimick passed away on Feb 2014 and my husband Christopher Pat Kelly was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme Type 4 Brain Cancers in Jan 2016 and passed away May 31 2016.
I have been depressed since our sons passing and just started to come out from my depression only to care for my husband and have to go through the thought and knowing of losing him.
I have been at my daughters home for several months.
Only to find this letter that was written to me.
God bless you and keep you in his care. I only wish the best for you. We need to be kind to one another as one never knows what someone else has or is going through.
I will take care
of my Grandmothers findagrave as soon as I am able too emotionally.
