St. Paul's United Methodist Church of Paulsboro
Broad & Delaware Street, Paulsboro NJ
history of Paulsboro stated, "The Methodist Church was incorporated in 1827
with twelve members. The first church was built of stone in 1838, Samuel Paul,
for whom the town was named, gave the land adjoining the church for a burial ground.
He was the first to be buried in the new cemetery." I have not yet been able
to determine if this is the same building, but the church is within one block
of "The Paul House," so it is possible.
READABLE stone, according to the USGenWeb transcription, is Mary M. Moore/Moose
b. January 19, 17??, d. July 1720. More commonly the burial appear to have begun
about the 1760's and continued on into the 1900's. There are other members of
the PAUL family in this cemetery, but I could find no inscription for Samuel Paul,
nor is here listed in the transcription list below. There were, however many stones
where the face was worn so that it was not readable.
This is not a collection of photographs of ALL of the stones in this
cemetery. You should probably view the TOMBSTONE
TRANSCRIPTION (USGenWeb) first, and then see if it matches up with
any of the photographs I've produced below. Many of these graphics are
high quality (large files) so you will see pretty much what I did when
I visited this web site in September of 2005.
If your ancestor/relative IS in the transcription but
you don't see their name below, it might be worth your while to look at the stones
that I could not figure out, and others here, as they may be shown next to the
primary stones that I photographed.
