|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, and I have always held an interest in cemeteries. (I have since relocated to Bucks County, Pennsylvania). As children, we would picnic in them, pick wild strawberries when we could find them, play hide and seek and even take a sleigh ride down some of the steeper hills on snowy days! No disrespect was ever meant, it was just a way of life for us growing up here. It was where us kids would play and spend our summer days, and go to get a drink of cool water from one of the old hand drawn water pumps. |
Now as an adult, I love to walk through different cemeteries and look at all the different stones with their names and dates and inscriptions with their beautiful, intricate stonework. I find it peaceful and relaxing. It gets me outdoors and I even get in a little exercise walking along the winding roads and pathways with the stones tilting this way and that. And since I have an interest in photography and genealogy, this is a way for me to expand upon a couple of my hobbies.
It is my hope and goal, that I might be able to provide some comfort to those who have lost their dear loved ones by creating these memorial pages for each individual. They may not be able to visit the cemetery, but they can visit their loved ones and friends here, and leave a loving note.
If you see any errors on a memorial page that I created, please contact me and I will be more than happy to make those changes for you. If you have any additional information that you would like to have added to a record, I will do that too.
Additionally, if you would like to have a transfer of ownership of a memorial that I have posted, just let me know and I will transfer it to you.
A Stairway to Heaven...
If Tears Could Build A Stairway,
And Memories A Lane,
I'd Walk Right Up To Heaven,
And Bring You Home Again.

|Michelle Kirkham||Wondering if I could have a transfer|
First, thank you very much for your postings of both my grandfather, George Wilson, Sr. and my uncle, Jimmy Wilson. So, I've just become a member here and would like to manage both of their sites if possible.
I have already requested my grandmother, June Wilson, and Mindy was kind enough to do so.
Thank you in advance,
Oh their numbers: George 72019645
|Dee Winter||Harold Housman|
Jim, Thank you for posting up Harold's memorial. Just found out today(Thurday) that he passed away. Jennie is my 2nd cousin and I have known both for years as I was raised in Hampton. Blessings, Dee

Wow! Small world!! I remember those parties too!! In the later years Grandma would pay the grandchildren to help serve food at the parties but I'm pretty sure we were horrible. Thank you again for doing this and putting a couple of notes on Dads page :)
|Gretchen Furlong||Thank you|
I was randomly missing my Dad (George R Parker III died June 9, 2007) and I came across your site. Thank you for taking the time to make this page. It makes me happy to see. Gretchen Furlong
Thank you for your kind words on my Father's memorial.

|Fran||Re: Pvt. Charles Buck|
Just to let you know that Charles and Rachel had two daughters as well as the six sons. The two daughters were Carrie and Ella. I believe that Rachel is buried next to Charles but has no headstone. Carrie died at the age of 11 and Ella died in 1906. My link is thru Ella.

|Mindy||Welcome to findagrave|
Hi Jimmie, I've been working on the cemeteries in Whitehouse Station for a few years now and pretty much got them all photographed. I then moved to Clinton and trying to finish up photographing the stones in Evergreen across the street from the library. Next, I was going to move to the Flemington Cemeteries but if you plan on photographing a cemetery there, just let me know which one and I'll do another. There are two outside of Oldwick and one real big one on 202 or 206 going towards the back side of Flemington that I have been eyeing. I'll have to look at the name again. I find I photograph more in the Spring, Fall and sometimes the Winter. The nats like to attack me in the Summer time. LOL
I have a few secrets for the older stones. I brush flour on them with a big fat brush. I bring a baggie full of flour with me. It really helps identifying and reading the stones. It makes the names and dates stand out better for photographing. I think there is some law up here in NJ that you can't use chalk on the stones like they use down south.
I just transferred the Buck memorials to you. I have no problem transferring or making any changes to your family memorials. Pls do not hesitate to ask.
