|Bio and Links|
|Thanks in advance for anyone photographing graves for me. It's really exciting when you find an ancester and then the grave, often the last link to that person.|
I have alot of relatives from Mays Landing, NJ area (Adams & Lake) and also from Newburgh (Tobias, Samuels) and Peekskill (Travis, Odell, Morton, Anderson, Tuttle), NY.
If you need a picture and you can give info on the plot section that would be most helpful. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

|Mark Maxwell||My typo|
If she was born in late 1763.....
|Mark Maxwell||Elizabeth Babington|
The year of birth cannot be calculated without knowing at least the number of months. If Elizabeth was born in the end of 1863 she would still be "81 years" of age. Likewise, the date of birth cannot be calculated with out knowing the number of days, and that changes due to the crossover between Julian & Gregorian calendars (currently -13 days difference) which continues to increase as time passes. If you had asked George Washington what his birthdate was when he was 10 years old he would have said February 11, 1732!!!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
I really appreciate all of your work to locate Rebecca's stone.
She is my 6th Great Grandmother and now I know where she is.
You went above and beyond the usual volunteer photo to find this.
I hope that someone can return the favor to you. And, maybe it could be me!

Wish I had more information, and photos, for you, but I can't help. I used to work near that cemetery, and visited it from time to time out of curiosity. I'm delighted to hear of the restoration efforts, as it was basically being used as a dump/party site when I used to go there. You're more than welcome to use any photos I may have taken in the event that those markers no longer exist.

Genealogical archeology is a never ending search for clues and facts. We sift through data hoping for the 'big find' to prove our ancestral connections. Bit by bit we piece our history together. It is frustrating at times. We get impatient for answers, but somehow never want to quit. Keep looking. I am sure, some day, you will find your relative.
Let me know if I can help in any way. As a retiree, I have the time to search local records.

Thanks for all the additions. I know very little about this cemetery--just happen to drive by it often on my way to work. Alan Steinfeld (member 47126671) has been doing a ton of research on the cemetery and the people buried there--he's your best best for more information about specific people and their relationships. Good luch with your search!
