Welcome to Old First Methodist Episcopal Cemetery, Wall Street, Eatontown, NJ
We have photographed some of the gravemarkers for the Old First Methodist Episcopal Cemetery, Wall
Street, Eatontown, NJ which according to Ed Raser's book entitled New Jersey Graveyard and Gravestone Inscription
Locators - Monmouth County is also known as "West Long Branch Cemetery,"
Branchburg Cemetery," and the "Mechanicsville Cemetery." This cemetery is very old and many of
the markers are in very poor condition. This project is ongoing but in the end we will
most likely not have more than 90% of the markers recorded.
The photography has been the work of my two daughters, Allison (10) and Kristen (8). Transcription
has been checked (or is in the process of being checked) against available historical recordings.
All photographs and page desing are copyright DistantCousin.com.
We offer this transcription and photographs as is for your use in family history research. It is not
provide completely accurate birth and death information for the individuals interred here. Nor is it
our intent to compile a genealogy of the families whose dead are buried here. Our goal was exclusively
to record the cemetery as is and provide you with photographs of the gravemarkers of potential ancestors.
We hope you find the information and photographs of use in your genealogy research.
