Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born 1947 in Atlantic City Hospital. Egg Harbor City schools and Oakcrest High School. Graduate of University of Dubuque (C'1970) BS Chemistry. Retired NJ State Police Forensic Scientist Supervisor (Drugs and Toxicology) Jun.2012; member of the American Chemical Society, Mid-Atlantic Association of Forensic Scientists, and Society of Forensic Toxicologists. President of the Egg Harbor City Historical Society and Roundhouse Museum (www.ehchs.org). In February 2010, completed a book on early Egg Harbor City for Arcadia Publishing. In September 2010, selected "Citizen of the Year in appreciation for service to our community". Appointed Squadron Historian by the Edward H. "Butch" O'Hare Fighting Squadron Six (VF-6), Member of the Tailhook Association, Member of the USS Intrepid Association, Member of the United States Naval Institute, Life Member of 11th Airborne Association

Kathleen Stadtmuller-Gad, Dennis Kolb and I teamed up on area cemetery entries and locations/maps. In June 2010, as part of expanding the information available to visitors of the Roundhouse Museum, we began a walk-through of the EHC cemetery, matching maps and records with local funeral home records. The retrieved information was added to Find-a-Grave. We continue to compare our findings with the interment book of the City Clerk to locate interments that do not have memorial monuments.

Family (Cavileers & Maxwells) in the Atlantic/Burlington County area since 1700s.

Married Patricia A. O'Brien (Longmeadow, MA). Two sons Mark Jr. (grandson Calvin) and James.

Besides going to cemeteries in southern NJ, I occasionally get sidetracked to other areas by internet searches of local people. Then my favorite part is locating the cemeteries to create map coordinates and enter those not already in F.A.G. Of course, the best are the trips to places like Hampden Co., MA or Philadelphia and its surrounding counties.

Among the main limbs of my family trees are:
Paternal: ADAMS, CAVILEER, CRAMER, GALE, LEEK, LOVELAND, MAXWELL, McANNEY, SOOY, VANSANT

Maternal: CURRY, KRIEG, TOWNSEND, SCULTHORPE

In-laws: CRUM, O'BRIEN, HASSON, PLUMMER

Anyone who wants to use my photos for personal/family use GO AHEAD. Any others, just add a credit line below it.

Please note: I do look at corrections sent to me, just not the day you send it.

RE: Fratz
Thank you so much! The next time I am in the area, I will definitely stop by and check out the museum. The Fratz family migrated to Egg Harbor City from Philadelphia, probably as part of the German influx, but then tragedy hit, and many of them died, and most of the rest returned to Philadelphia within ten years. I find that whole bit of history fascinating. Thanks again for the transfers!

Caroline M. Fratz - 133672975
Aaaand... I hit "send" too soon. I am 99% sure that the Caroline M. Fratz (133672975) listed in Egg Harbor City Cemetery is the wife of John Fratz, and my g-g-g-grandmother, and that Frank Fratz (133672841) is their son.

If you're amenable to transferring John Fratz to me, perhaps you'd like to send Caroline and Frank over, as well?

(If it's a pain to do this, I understand. And thank you again for your work!!)

John Fratz - 133672154
Mr. Maxwell,

I was thrilled to see my g-g-g-grandfather (John Fratz - 133672154) listed in the Egg Harbor City Cemetery. I've suspected for a while that he was buried there, but had no evidence. Clearly, you found the record, and that's fantastic! Thank you for typing it up for me to find!

If you are not terribly attached to this particular record and would like to transfer it to me, I'll gladly take it, as I hope to find more information about his wife, etc., and link up family members.

Best,
Jennifer

Very clear photo.
I hope you were able to get the key to the gate.
I hope the link to JewishGen will help you with the headstone translations.
Thank you so much.

Ahavas Abram cemetery
Hi Mark,
I noticed you have provided several of the photos for this cemetery.

I would like an address or directions to this cemetery and a phone number for the caretaker.

My goal is to provide my cousins (his grandkids) with the location so they can visit.
I would also like to get the plot location and a photo of the headstone.

Note:I have a photo of the gate that matches this cemetery and is attached to Frank Sigel
Thank you,
Stephen Fox
