Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in NJ. I have lived here all my life. I have been doing my family genealogy since 1996. I love walking through and transcribing cemeteries.

Some of the memorials I have created and manage are ancestors of mine, and many of them are not. I try to add as much as possible to the memorials so that others researching their families can get information on their families. I welcome any corrections to the memorials I have created. Sometimes information sent can be incorrect, the dates on graves hard to read, etc.

I think findagrave is excellent, but when you wish to add memorials, please make sure that someone else has NOT already added that person. Duplicate memorials are confusing to other researchers. I have found many cases where I have created memorials and someone else has created another one AFTER mine. If you discover a memorial has already been created by someone else and you are family to the person added, please contact the submitter for a transfer. Also, adding memorials to findagrave because you ASSUME the person is buried there is also confusing to other researchers. If you do not know do NOT add it. This website is to help others, not to see how many memorials you can add.

The cemeteries that I have added memorials from include: Canton Baptist Church Cemetery in Canton, NJ; First Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Salem, NJ; Baptist Church Cemetery in Salem, NJ; East View Cemetery in Salem, NJ; St. Mary's Cemetery in Salem, NJ; Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Greenwich, Cumberland Co. NJ; and Saint John's Episcopal Churchyard in Salem City, Salem Co., NJ.

I usually honor requests for memorial transfers if the memorial is a relative of the requester, but please do not expect large numbers of memorials to be transferred at a moments notice. I will transfer them as MY time allows.


**PLEASE USE THE EDITS FEATURE OF FINDAGRAVE TO SUBMIT INFORMATION OR CORRECTIONS TO MEMORIALS. I will NOT correct if they are not sent through the edits feature. Too many emails are jamming my inbox AND information being sent to correct is NOT for the actual memorial needing to be corrected/updated. I have no problem correcting memorials but I am NOT going to spend my time having to hunt for the correct memorial.

Thankyou Dawn!!
I really appreciate all the work you have done! It really helps people like me that can't get to the cemeteries! My family tree is scattered over most of the cemeteries you have posted on, and your relationship data has helped me put together a number of puzzles! Thanks again! If I can ever be of assistance, please let me know!

Albert Myers
In the First Presbyterian Cemetery in Salem, New Jersey, there is listed an Albert Myers and family with some info in the notes. Albert is listed as the son of (unknown)myers and Mary(unknown)1852-1924. Does this indeed indicate that both Albert's mother and father are also buried there.
Thank you so much.

RE: Frank Josiah Davis
Is her birthday 24 Feb 1867 in Salem New Jersey and her death date 27 Oct 1949 in Salem New Jersey? That is my person. Thanks for checking. Linda

RE: Frank Josiah Davis
Dawn, thank you. No hurry. When you can, will be fine. Could you possibly see if his wife Hannah Bell Pedrick Wright is close by? Don't know where she is buried for sure. Thanks again, Linda

The memorial number is: 11416313. Do you happen to have a photograph of his headstone and if you do could you please attach it to the memorial. Thanks, Linda

Seeley in Old Presby.
Ephraim Seeley is interred in Old Presbyterian Church Cemetery near Fairton, NJ. Thank you for notifying me about the problem. My entry contained a spelling problem (and added Esq.) that led to the duplicate entry, however, it does not explain the entry being in Old Stone Church Cemetery.

I personally located and photographed Ephraim's grave in Old Presbyterian Church Cemetery on Back Neck Road at Methodist Meeting Road. This cemetery and church has had several other names attached to it, including Old New England and Fairfield. The grounds of this Church/Cemetery became divided in the late 1770s when the congregation moved a few miles down Methodist Meeting Road (a name acquired after a Methodist Church was founded here by Rev. Swing). The new church is now known as Fairfield Presbyterian Church/Old Stone Church with its attached cemetery. With the founding of the Methodist church on Back Neck Roaad, the cemetery grounds were divided, with the burials in the rear remaining with the Old Presbyterian Church Cemetery and the new cemetery in front alongside the road going by the name "Swing Cemetery".

Many of the names (and spouses) have become spread between these two cemeteries. To add to the problem, a group of the congregation of "Old Stone Church" separated in 1838 and moved further down the road to Cedarville to found another Presbyterian Church and cemetery immediately behind the church, further splitting family interments. This has now become known Brick Church Cemetery, not to be confused with the Cedar Hill Cemetery which is operated by Brick Church.

All in all, you can find members of the same family in any of the here-mentioned cemeteries.
