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 Mark, I read Alma's obit and did not see any reference to Wesley & Ida Barrett. Please send me the portion of the obituary that notes that Wesley and Ida Barrett are the parents of Howard W Barrett Find A Grave# 66860307. I have read and reread Alma's obit Find A Grave# 65642488. Sorry that I keep missing the info. Leo Shelley

Hello. Just researching some of my Lorah roots. Is the memorial #19423397 a duplicate of memorial #120970469?
