The New Providence Cemetery (a.k.a - the Glades) has a map and index, which was completed in August 2013. Since the records disappeared more than 40 years ago, we have been establishing new records.
We have been working with the Office of Veterans Affairs to acquire military headstones to honor our Veterans whose headstones are illegible, non-existent or beyond repair. We have received some new ones, which have been put into place.
The officers of the New Providence Cemetery Company are: James Hartley, President; Paul McMinn, Treasurer; Shelley McMinn Anderson, Secretary. Paul McMinn and Jerry Ross do a wonderful job maintaining the cemetery.
Regarding the Laurel Point Cemetery - the records for Laurel Point are lacking in information or are non-existent. We (the Cemetery Board) are restoring those records and have added so far over 2500 memorials to f.a.g. for Laurel Point Cemetery. We will also be adding headstone photos to those memorials. A map and index will be made and hopefully available by sometime in 2017. Please be patient - this will take some time.
For questions regarding either cemetery, or if you would like a map and index of the Glades Cemetery, please email me at ShelleyA29@yahoo.com
