Bio and Links
I am very interested in the early history of the industrial cities of Paterson and Newark, New Jersey.

My ancestors were silk manufacturers in Paterson, New Jersey, and in Macclesfield, Cheshire, England during the 19th and 20th centuries.

Please feel free to use photographs or information if it is to benefit your family research.

It is my desire to transfer all memorials of those I entered in Cedar Lawn and Mount Pleasant Cemetery to their descendants and all those doing their family genealogy. I am glad to transfer memorials to any family members or descendants who request regardless of the general transfer guidelines.

Thank you for all your hard work and contributions! So appreciated.

I wanted to ask if the inscription on a headstone you contributed, DAVID A RIKER (1810-1899) #111245386 can be read or added to the site. This is my 4th great-grandfather and I would like to read the dates for his wife Elizabeth.

Also if you can update his birth/death dates for others searching for him. And any other RIKERS nearby, I would love to find out more about them too! I am on the West Coast (California) so this is a huge help.

Thank you so much, this will be a huge help in trying to go further back in my family research!

Memorial Management Transfer
Hello Friends of Cedar Lawn Cemetery,

My name is William Godwin and I am currently working on entering my relatives into Find a Grave. I cannot thank you enough for posting a memorial for both Abraham (109674459) and Martha Godwin (86557342). They are my 4th Great-Grandparents! I do have some information to add (Names, Relatives, Bio, etc.) and was hoping you might be so kind as to transfer management of the memorials to me for quick editing?

Many Regards and thank you in advance,

- William Godwin

memorial # 96743880
I want to thank you for all the work you have done for Find A Grave. I have a question for your about Eddy Pulhamus son of David and Hannah who died in 1871 at a very young age.

I have a death certificate for Edward Pulhamus who died at 4 months old on Feb 20, 1871 with his mother Sarah Pulhamus in Paterson. His father Aaron was David's father.

can you tell me where you got the information? and can I have a copy?
