Bio and Links
Graver who often tours through cemeteries in southern New Jersey in search of ancestors (mine & yours).

Will happily fulfill grave marker photo requests in Salem, Cumberland & Gloucester Counties (NJ) if I am able.

Will gladly make corrections to any memorials I may have transcribed incorrectly. Corrections will be made if you utilize Suggest A Correction under the Edit tab on the person's record.

Will gladly transfer memorials to family members or friends of the deceased. I prefer to see memorial records maintained by someone who knows (or knows of) the deceased.

I checked the birth records for 1906 in PA and found nothing for Walter so I'm going to stay with the information from the Social Security Death Index.

Fred, If you ever encounter Charles Ray Towles (1883-1948) and Lettie May Hites Towles (1881-1966) in Glouchester or Cumberland counties in NJ, please post them. These would be the parents of Silas Rector Towles. The death dates could be off. Thanks, Helen

Overlook Cemetery
Hi Fred, Many thanks for your info about Harry Freitag. I truly appreciate your efforts. I have the feeling that there are many more Freitags buried in the cemetery. If you take pictures of them I would be happy to create the memorials and make the connections. Harry was my husband's grand uncle. Sandy

RE: Lester & Myrtle White
Thanks for the note, Fred. I'm not actually sure--but I can ask her daughter, whom I know. I suspect Myrtle is buried in Utah, where she moved as a widow, but that after she died the family also had the inscription on the stone with her husband back in NJ finished (i.e., had the death year added).

I'll see if I can find out. Meanwhile, both #s for Myrtle can be linked either way. My guess is the one in NJ is actually a cenotaph.

Fred, you must have been in the cemetery to be so fast.
Thank you so much.

Hi Fred,

Found myself with info on the Harris family. Levi married Abigail Harris, daughter of Thomas & Sarah (Dayton) Harris of Fairfield Twp. sometime in or before 1774. Levi was born in Fairfield Twp. in 1774 and died at the age of 490 years. He and Abigail had two children:

Sarah Stratton (APR1775-07OCT1796) She was the 1st wife of Reuben Buck

Daniel Powell Stratton (07DEC1784 - 06JUN1840)

Levi had a second wife named Elizabeth as mentioned in his will of 14FEB1792. He and Elizabeth had a daughter Jemima.

Still trying to get the Swing/Old Presby/Old Stone/ and now Church of Christ cemeteries fixed, but major project with EHC Clerk has me bogged down since last June.
