RE: Pleasantville cemetery location
Thank you . Yea, I found problems at the Oceanville, Nj cemetery. The index of graves on line have some people missing . I think that was based on who bought each lot and as I found there are family lots of 4 graves or so .

Pleasantville cemetery location
Hello ,

Really appreciate your detailed Bio. Can you tell me the address where I can locate this cemetery. I do not live in NJ.
I've been looking for my ancestor Thomas Dutch Leeds b. 18 Apr 1835 Oceanville, NJ
Death 24 Jul 1913 Oceanville,NJ
I did not find him at Oceanville cemetery nor at the Atlantic City cemetery nor Greenwood .

Pleasantville Evening Union wire news article on July 15 1913 . " Thomas Leeds, aged 75 an one of the oldest residents of Oceanville, died at his home last evening after a brief illness of several days. Death was due to the infirmities of age. He was a bricklayer and had followed this trade for nearly half a century. His wife died several years ago. Funeral services will be held at the Oceanville church on Saturday afternoon at 7 o'clock and interment will be made in the PLeasantville cemetery. "

Surrans in Brotherhood Cemetery
I see what you mean. I'll research the obituaries for the other Surrans as time allows this weekend, and see if, by added details/links to the other memorials, things get clearer.

If it weren't complicated, we wouldn't enjoy it as much!

Please correct the name of the spouse of Otto Keith. His wife's name is "Maidie" not "Maudie", as evidenced in the photo of the headstone.

You were not responsible for the link to Maidie's info, which wrongly has her buried in Texas County, MO rather than beside her husband here in Pike County, MO!!

Sorry to hear of your illness. Please make the change when you have a chance. And thanks for all your work!

Evelyn Pharo Cramer #46954818
I have removed links from Evelyn Cramer and infant son Robert Cramer to Nelson Lemuel Cramer. I have no additional information on the family.

Below is your message from earlier this year --

There appears to be in incorrect link of Evelyn Cramer to Nelson Lemuel Cramer (#12931430).
Having spoken with both Nelson Lemuel Cramer (#12931430) and his second wife Ida May Ford Cramer (#137625191) in the 1980s on the subject of our family tree, neither of them mentioned a marriage to Evelyn M Pharo.

Lynch Family Egg Harbor NJ Cemetery
Dear Mark,
I hope you are feeling better these days and getting stronger. I so appreciate the work you have done as I have now found my great grandparents at this cemetery -William J and Elizabeth F Lynch. I am in search of two sons. One though died in Newport RI in 1904 only 11 months old. but there was another son, Thomas Francis Lynch who lived in Washington DC and shows he died there but was in the service. his DOB 11-4-1889 and death April 1964. I believe he was married to an Annie E Lynch who was from Washington DC. I think her Birth Year was 1881
Can you help in finding my great Uncle Thomas. thank you!

RE: Smith & Wade in Grassy Creek
Your personal info was very interesting. My father was with the first aerial reconnaissance in WWII and my brother was in the last in Viet Nam. I am sorry to hear abt your health problem as I am a retired RN and am somewhat familiar with the difficulties you are facing. I wish you the best. As far as the records you quoted, I am not familiar with them as I am totally self taught in genealogy. My only answer to both of them being on the same headstone is that I have come across it when a couples deaths were close together, or when money was tight, as stones and engraving were out of many people's reach financially, or when it was requested on a last wish.

RE: Barto bio
The other problem I mentioned was that of Abraham Reppert who has a flat marker at Dryville but is believed to be buried at Lobachsville with his wife. I was told his marker might be moved to Lobachs. yesterday I inquired about any progress.
Be well,

I just wanted to say how much we truly appreciated your help via email and on the phone while trying to locate my great grandmother's grave. I would not have been able to do it without the "blob" photo you sent and most importantly you adding her grave to findagrave. You truly are one of a kind! Without volunteers like you and the others that helped work on this cemetery many people would never be found. Thanks Kelly

RE: Hannah Gale of Tuckerton
I have a Hannah Berry b1882 in my tree who married an Oliver Gale. He was buried in Tuckerton. I don't have a death date for her.

There are two other people who have the last name of Gale at Weymouth who have very similar stones: Martin Gale and Hazel Gale. The 1900 census record has a Hannah Gale listed as the mother of an Albert Gale living in Weymouth. There is a Martin Gale listed on that record as a boarder.

I wish I had more information for you, because the story is definitely interesting.

RE: Jacob Natter

Correct. The bottler must have been the blacksmith as he is listed as blacksmith on several birth certificates and documents. They came from NY and must have moved to Egg Harbor City, NJ around 1862. Jacob and Amelia's eldest child Jacob H. Natter was born in King, NY in 1860. Their next child Ludwig Natter is listed as being born in East New York, King, NY in March 1862 and dying in EHC in August 1862. The next sibling Emilie is born in EHC June 18, 1863 and dies there February 2, 1865. Next Edward William Natter is born in EHC in 1864 and dies there in 1865. Then several others siblings are born in EHC: Oscar 1866 (my great-great grandfather), Mary or Maria 1867, Frederick 1870, Edmund 1871, Emma 1875, and Charles 1877. Here is some information from the 1880 census where their last name was misspelled:

I did not take that photo but since it has my name attached I was able to change the date. I have no idea how it got under my name, I have never been to that cemetery and another person posted it. Glad I could help though.

Grave of John Caryl

Dear Mark,

I was excited to find the picture of my patriot ancestor on find a grave! Thank you for your many contributions!

I have a question. In the post their are two photos. Is the older monument the old gravestone or is it a foot stone? I can't read the inscription on the older one so I am curious!
