Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello
I am working exclusively in Hazel Wood Cemetery which is on the Rahway, Clark and Colonia borders in NJ
I believe the entire cemetery is now photographed, although we still occasionally find someone we missed.
All of the entries include GPS coordinates which are believed to be accurate within 30 feet. This depends on the accuracy of our GPS and YOUR GPS at any given moment.
In some cases similar pictures to an existing headstone picture have been added to a memorial. The added pictures have GPS information embedded them, which populates the GPS field for the memorial. The new mobile apps from FaG supports GPS enable smart phones.

Enoch Dunham Memorial# 178530029
Hi George,

The record for Enoch Dunham should have the death date as 1848 not 1948. He was born in 1814 so 1948 would make him 134 years old! :) Also...In your bio you say you are researching your own family in Hazelwood cemetery. Is Enoch Dunham a relative? I messaged the cemetery asking about any interment records and they can't find any for any of the Dunhams attached to Enoch. Bummer!

Thank you, George, from Alaska
Thanks so much for the lovely photo of my grandparents' headstone:

It was a gorgeous day -- thanks for your kind efforts, and I especially love the GPS coordinates!

Thank you so much for adding a jpg of my aunt's headstone to the FindAGrave page I created for her. I live in Florida and no longer have relatives in New Jersey who could go to the cemetery and take a photo. I am very appreciative.

After taking a second look, I deleted my memorial because I found memorial #80620186, created in 2011, which includes headstone photo. So it looks like yours in a duplicate of that one.

"170695671 Dewitt De Forest/DeForeest
Hi George. Source data is listed in Bio field. Funeral Home records had surname spelled as "De Forest". Based on your headstone photos of other family members, I changed the spelling of my memorial to "DeForeest". Please delete your memorial because it's a duplicate. Thanks.
