“Jones Doremus Cemetery” (Wayne)

 

In the summer of 1931, Mr. Edwin DOREMUS compiled a listing of seven cemeteries in Passaic and Morris County, NJ. Doremus copied these inscriptions onto individual slips of paper and indexed and numbered them in a stone-by-stone sequence. His handwritten slips were microfilmed by the by Genealogical Society, Salt Lake City, Utah at Newark on 28 Nov 1973 by J. Norton and were most likely destroyed afterwards.

Mr. Doremus’s original microfilmed slips and index can be seen on LDS microfilms #0947150 and #1016883 (index). The individual inscription records below were extracted from these microfilmed records by Mr. George VAN RIPER in late 1999.

Edwin Doremus writes the following, taken in part from his “Cemetery and Burial Records of Pompton Plains, NJ and Vicinity,” dated September 6, 1937:

“The accompanying records, dating back as far as 1768, were compiled in the summer of 1931 from eight sources.

“These records are numbered and arranged in the order in which the stones are found in the respective cemeteries. However, several items carry the same number with the subscript A, B, C., etc. If either (1), several names appear on one stone, or (2) one stone bears a family name with various markers bearing individual names.

“There are two exceptions to this arrangement: (1) stones which have fallen and have been covered over have no numbers allotted to them, and (2) by mistake in numbering the items, some numbers were skipped. The latter omissions have all been indicated in the proper place.

“To aid the researchist, where a wife is not buried adjacent to her husband, a cross reference has been included on the transcript of the husbands record. The same procedure has been followed in the case of children. Also, notation has been made on the transcript of any Lodge or Service Organization Insignia found by a headstone.”
