Calvary Cemetery of the Magyar Reformed Church of Perth Amboy, Fords, Middlesex County, NJ

The Calvary Cemetery of the Magyar Reformed Church of Perth Amboy sits next to the Ukrainian Catholic Church of the Assumption Cemetery.   The two cemeteries sit along Florida Grove Road in what my map tells me is Fords (an unincorporated piece of Woodbridge, NJ) right on the border of Perth Amboy, NJ.   The church is located in Perth Amboy but, as Florida Grove Road is the border between the two cities, the cemeteries lie just outside of Perth Amboy.

I am not 100% certain but the Magyar cemetery seems to be slightly older than the Ukrainian one.   And the two have interments of people sharing surnames.   My personal experience tells me that if you are unsuccessful looking for a relative in one, it is advisable for you to check the other.   Sometimes folks convert between local churches and forget to mention this to their relatives.

The cemetery seems to hold somewhere around 2,000 burials, give or take a few hundred.   There are many veterans interred here, particularly for World War II (WWII).   Where military memorial plaques have been placed, we photographed these in addition to headstones and other tombstones.   For simplicity, we note the military markers as such and all other stones are referred to as "tombstones."   Please take a look at all photographs pertaining to your person(s) of interest as they sometimes offer a more complete story than the mere information we have transcribed.

We hope you find this work useful and, as always, please let us know if you have any problems.
