Sarah C Walton - death SALEM, NEW JERSEY 1887
« on: Wednesday 19 September 18 06:37 BST (UK) »
Hi,
My 3x great-grandmother, Sarah C WALTON (née SCHOCH) was living at 26 1/2 Hedge St, Salem, New Jersey when she died on 22nd January 1887 - aged 75.

Her death certificate (which I have a copy of) states she was buried in the Baptist Cemetery, Salem.

Would anyone be able to tell me whether this cemetery still exists and how I might go about contacting them to see if they hold any further information.

Thank you

It looks like it still exists.  This transcription was done in 2007, so not too long ago - http://www.interment.net/data/us/nj/salem/salem_bapt/index.htm  This picture looks fairly recent, too - https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/641086/baptist-cemetery

This page gives a link to the Facebook page for the Memorial Baptist Church in Salem - http://www.standupforsalem.org/component/sobipro/155-memorial-baptist-church?Itemid=0  The Facebook page has an obit of someone being buried there in 2012, so maybe they're connected?

Thanks Shelley. I have seen the first site but no mention of Sarah.

I have emailed the church and will now wait for a rep,y.

Thank you
