Elmwood Cemetery
I'm planning on visiting Elmwood Cemetery in North Brunswick within the next few weeks to take pictures of some graves for Find A Grave. com
If you call the cemetery office and get the plot and lot number of the person you would like a picture of their grave stone, I will try to get it while I'm there.

I have added information regarding her parents into her bio but, I'm sorry, I cannot link to your memorial because the burial information is unknown. Find A Grave isn't a genealogy site for linking all known members of a family together. It's a place where people can come to FIND a GRAVE. Creating memorials that don't accomplish that goal defeats the purpose of the site. I hope you understand.

I had entered a record for Jacob Beamer in 2001, but entered it on Clove Cemetery, instead of old Clove. If it is alright with you, I will transfer my record to you, and perhaps you can incorporate the two ?? Please let me know. Thank you.

Richard -

I tried to give you an edit recommendation from his memorial, but the Find A Grave functionality for doing so seems to be missing.

Frederick Theodore Frelinghuysen's memorial is:

Find A Grave Memorial# 8170338

Could you link him to his mother, Dinah Van Bergh:

Find A Grave Memorial# 124578012

Thanks. Charlie
