Bio and Links
A short walk through Trinity Churchyard in 2004 got me interested in older cemeteries. A few years later, I found it difficult to research my family geneology. I started adding names here to maybe help others with their research. I'm also a big Revolutionary War buff and I have been searching for graves of anyone who somehow participated in the Revolutionary War.

Dear Dan,
Thanks so much for posting the photo of Mary Ward Doyle's head stone. She was my ggg grandmother. The stone gave me information about her son's death and a grandson I didn't know existed!
Best regards,
Nancy Gannon

Joshua Mundy (# 19133649)
Good Morning, Dan!
It has been a while since I last contacted you...I hope all is well with you! I'm still working on adding photos of all of the headstones to all of the memorials at First Presbyterian Cemetery in Metuchen; I now have about about 61% complete!

I have been working with a Veteran (for about a year), originally from the area, now living in Florida, to connect with some of his family members. He made a surprise visit to NJ several weeks ago. I took him on a tour of First Presbyterian, Old Colonial and Hillside Cemeteries in Metuchen.

While looking at Joshua Mundy's memorial this morning, I saw that he is listed with his wife Phebe Cutter Mundy (his 1st wife according to Phebe's bio), and his daughter Lovicy (Mundy) Mundy. When I clicked on Lovicy's memorial, it said that she was the daughter of Joshua and his 2nd wife Phebe Ayers. I know that Joshua is yours and that the other memorials were made by Alice LaRue, but she has been off line for several years and may have passed away.

I was wondering if you had any info on Joshua Mundy's other wives? Thanks so much!

Enjoy your day!

Hi Dan
Many thanks for doing his memorial.
Henry Lyon is the brother of my G-Grandfather X8.
Would it be possible to have this memorial transferred to me? As I'm working on our family history. Thanks

Hannah second wife of Philomen,
My second message. They are right next to each other tucked under a now large shrub. Haannah, born Hannah Sturges, married first John S Badgley and then Philomen as his second wife. She is also a gggrandmother. Would you please transfer her to me also?
A sincere thank you for all that you do.

Hi Dan, Thanks for all you do. This grave is now almost illegible so the pix that you took is precious. This is my 3rd great grandfather. Would you please transfer him to me?
Thank you, Kathy

Veghte Burying Ground
Hi there Dan. You were actually at Dumont Burying Ground ( when you photographed the photos you added to memorials in Veghte Burying Ground ( The location is mislabeled on Google Maps. So, the memorials you created are actually duplicates of memorials that had already been created in Dumont.
