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.

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!
