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. I am undergoing a maintenance chemotherapy that will be 24 x 21-on-7-off sequences of Revlimid ending in 2018. Spring 2016 has enabled me to return to most of my former activities, including Find-A-Grave, but travel distances are still limited to about 60 miles from home.

Among my family trees are:



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

Before you ask me to change an "unknown" birthdate to one that you calculated, know your degree of uncertainty. To change a year, the age on the headtone must include years AND months. Without both the uncertainty is +/- one year and will not be changed.

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

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. "

Thank You
Dear Sir,

As I was going about my regular research. I happened on to your Find-A-Grave bio page and thought I would just say "Thank You". Your history is impressive and your dedication is remarkable.

With sincere respect,
Tanya Reed-Bush

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.
