The State of New Jersey is trying to complete a
turnpike project. In doing so the future of a
cemetery is at stake. A descendant of one of the 3500
or even possibly 9000 burials in the cemetery has been
fighting the various levels of government in order to
save the cemetery. It is my understanding that the
those involved with the project were going to remove
any remains and bury all in one great big mass grave
and not make any attempt to notify the
descendants/relatives. There is a website which has
numerous articles and other information. Your support
is needed. There are two ways to speak up and have
your voice heard: 1) download a printable petition
and obtain signatures, or 2) sign an online petition.
I hope that those who have ancestors in the State of
New Jersey will support the effort in saving this
cemetery. If you don't have ancestors or relatives in
New Jersey, then consider the fact that it could
happen to a cemetery where your ancestors are buried.

When I first heard about this a couple of months ago,
I was appalled and emailed a couple of letters. I
didn't think I would make a difference having no
connections to New Jersey, but evidently it helped in
some way. So if one can help do something, just think
what thousands can do as a group. If you are are
other mail lists, please pass this information on.
The more signatures, the better chance that the
officials in New Jersey as well as all other states
will see that we care about our ancestors and respect
their burial locations. Thank you for your support.

My Grandfather on his Civil Reg. Card lists the following
CIVILIAN REGISTRATION CARDS, 1917-1918--Van Buren Co. TN
Name Birthdate Race Birth
Luna, Willie 2 Apr 1892 W Jordon KY
I'd always been told he was born in Fulton Co. KY but never knew what prompted
the family to go there. Grandpa's brother that died the year before he
was born & died in Dekalb Co. TN. The other Children were all born in
Dekalb Co. TN and his siblings pretty much lived there until they were in
their 20s.and up.
Was wondering if there was something going on in Fulton Co. KY in 1892 that
might have prompted the family or at least his mother to be there. As far
as I know his mother didn't have any family there.
My Grandpa's Full name was William Richard Luna. He died in March 1994 a few
weeks short of what would have been his 102nd birthday.
His parents were David Enoch Luna and Nancy Pitman Luna. Nancy was the
daughter of David Pitman and Mary D. F. Adcock. Their parents were all
born and raised in Dekalb Co. TN.
