“The Old Presbyterian Graveyard, Bound Brook, New Jersey: A Resource” documents a wealth of information and illustrates the need for the historic preservation of a fascinating graveyard.
This monumental study has been developed in partnership with Mary C. Nelson, Hannah M. Kerwin, and the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey (SCLSNJ). As part of its mission, SCLSNJ seeks to preserve and interpret historical documents, and make them broadly accessible. This work advances the Library System’s mission by presenting a historical context for the graveyard as an institution of the Bound Brook community, and by presenting verified genealogical information.
