EHC cemetery entries have reconciled FindAGrave files with the records of the City Clerk. The EHC Historical Society has a spreadsheet of the original 8 blocks of the cemetery and digital copies of the Block/Section maps. We still get requests from families whose records indcated interment here, but no records can be found. There are also many headstones not recorded in the Clerk's records, which apparently are not complete between 1860 and 1900.

Family (Cavileers & Maxwells) in the Atlantic/Burlington County area since 1700s.
Married Patricia A. O'Brien (Longmeadow, MA). Two sons: Mark Jr., James; two grandchildren.

In OCT2014, I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. On 12OCT2015 I underwent an autologous stem-cell transplant at Jefferson Hospital. Spring 2016 will enable me to return to most of my former activities, including Find-A-Grave.

Among 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 info/photos for personal/family use GO AHEAD. Any others, just add a credit line below it.

RE: Elizabeth Neill Mahon # 95828280
He was not with her when I reviewed the cemetery record transcription. It would be nice to know we're the second wife is buried. If there are typos here it is because FindAGrave keeps putting a pop up add were I am typing. Please drop this practice FindAGrave. Until then please do NOT donate to RIC!

Rosana Emmel, Find A Grave Memorial# 17804448
Hi Mark!

If you are not a relative of Rosana, would you consider turning over her memorial to me? She was my g-g-g-g-grandmother.

I transcribed and photographed her stone in 2004 (seems like it was clearer in 2004 than it is in the more recent photos.) Anyway, this is how I read the inscription:

In
memory of
ROSANA, Mother of
Phillip Emmel,
Who departed this life
March 28, 1823. aged 74

On Good Friday it is said I died,
The day my Saviour was crucified.

Children dear for me don't weep.
I am not dead I do but sleep:
If prepar'd we shall arise
And meet our Savior above the skies.
