MT. PEACE CEMETERY BURIAL LEDGER

2004.011, Gift of Bryson Armstead

This ledger contains two decades of burial information for Mt. Peace Cemetery on the White Horse Turnpike in Lawnside, NJ. Covering 1937 to 1959, the ledger lists names, residences, burial dates, grave locations, and undertakers. It is part of a small collection of Mt. Peace records that were collected by Bryson Armstead during his work to document the long history and significance of the cemetery. The burial ledger has lost its cover and has water damage, but the information it contains is irreplaceable for family historians and other researchers.

The Historical Society compiled all of the burial data from the ledger and other cemetery records in the collection into a digital database to further improve access to this information.

The ledger is currently on loan to the Lawnside Historical Society for a special exhibit at Camden County Historical Society, opening soon!
