Green Grove Cemetery, Keyport, Monmouth County, NJ - Plot #460


The following is provided to us by Janet Matthews who can be reached via e-mail at the following address:

Horace B. Matthews and Walton P. Willis purchased Plot #460 within Green Grove Cemetery, Keyport, Monmouth County, N.J., June 3, 1889.   There are Ten Grave Sites, in Plot #460.   [Source: Deed came from County of Monmouth Archives and Records Center.]

There are only Three Burial's listed at Green Grove Cemetery for Plot #460 and Headstones for these 3 People listed below.   [Source: Green Grove Cemetery.]

    Grave 1 - Joseph L. Matthews - 1873 - 1959

    Grave 2 - Lidia T. Matthews - 1885 - 1978

    Grave 5 - Bessie, Daughter of Horace B. & Lottie D. Matthews   Born 1872 - Died July 18, 1887 Aged 15 years 7 Months Overcome with heat while picking berries.

Here is my guess as to who are buried in the remaining Seven Grave Sites. Since this is only a guess, there is the possibility that these people were not buried here, and the name does not necessarily fit with the number of the Grave. If anyone trips over an Engraved Headstone for these people, please e-mail me, at the address below.

Children of Horace B. & Charlotte D. are Sarah H., Frank, Carrie, George, Irving, Annie and Bessie above. I don't have any information on Joseph L. & Lidia T. Matthews.
