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.

RE: thomas Harris, Jr.
Without a memorial number, I have no idea who you are talking about. Sorry.

RE: Griesemer family
Yeah one of my lines is Griesemer but I am not a Bertolet so not sure how to spell it. The names seem to change spellings as they get anglicized.

RE: Greisemer family
I agree with you especially since we have the will that lists her as Peter's daughter with husband's name. Hard to find another couple with those last names and correct first names and birth dates(timeframe) all to match buried in the same area.
On Abraham, maybe he had a daughter that married a Daniel Bertolet as well. I have to wonder about that though since another bio does not mention it. Maybe one day a grave will show linked in for her though. Thanks for working on this with me. Have a good night!

RE: Mrs. Daniel Bertolet/Bertolette
I also noticed it does not list the first name of Abraham's daughter "Mrs. Daniel Bertolette" so possibly that part is correct too and he had a daughter that married in the same Bertolet family. Her first name could be anything.

RE: Mrs. Daniel Bertolet/Bertolette
good find on the bio - yes Peter's will confirms Mary/Maria Griesemer-Bertolet wife of Daniel is Peter's daughter as stated in the will.

RE: Greisemer family
I have been studying the Griesemers there quite a bit and I have not come across a Stephen yet. I wonder if it is Peter's middle name. Peter's will lists Mary Bertolet (wife of Daniel) as his daughter. I saw a bio about Abraham that did not list a daughter named Mary so I am wondering if that was a mistake.
