It is believed that this is the headstone and grave for the John W Bennett that some records say was initially buried in the Red Meeting House Cemetery, also known as the Old Holmdel Yard, that is located elsewhere in Holmdel, NJ.

It is believed that he was reinterred from there to this location at the Holmdel Cemetery and Mausoleum. The book "New Jersey Graveyard and Gravestone Inscriptions Locators MONMOUTH COUNTY" states that numerous graves from Old Holmdel Yard were moved to Holmdel Cemetery because they were not being properly maintained at Old Holmdel Yard.

The headstone in located in the family plot for Albert I(J) Bennett, his wife, Matilda DRUM Bennett, and their sons, daughters and other family members.

I checked with the onsite office to try to verify matters but they have no records of what graves were transferred to their facility.

Albert I (J) Bennett was one of the sons of John W Bennett and his wife, Elizabeth Van Mater.
