Line 21  Mlotkowskie Stanislow  should be MLOTKOWSKI, STANISLAW                  19APR1827-19AUG1900        EHC Cem

                  (Other Mlotkowskis in Lines 19 & 20 are unknown.  May be mispelled duplicates.)

                                                                                           Lines 22 & 23  Morgenweek/Morgawick should be MORGENWECK

                         The only "H" Morgenweck in the area who served in the Civil War was Priv. HENRY MORGENWECK, Co. F

                         5th  NY Vols.   He died  23MAY1877, aged 39 years, and is buried in Egg Harbor City Cemetery

                                                                                            Line 24    Natter, Jacob         

 This entry poses serious questions. Some records show that Jacob is correct while others show the name as John Natter.

 To make matters worse the 1870 US Census lists three separate households of Natters in EHC with two Jacob Natters and

 two John Natters.One John Natter was 34 yrs old and a carpenter and apprently his father John was 85 yrs old. One of the Jacobs

 was 55 yrs old and lived with the aforementioned John Natters.  The other Jacob in a separate household was 35 yrs old and 

a blacksmith.The only grave maker in the Natter family lot is for John Natter, the 34 year old carpenter,

 that is marked by the VFW as a veteran.  Even his surviving family members aren't sure which is which.

Line 25     Obergfell, George                                                                                                 04JUL1828-31JUL1896      EHC Cem

                                                                                            Line 31    Schwickerath, John             

 We do not have a John Schwickerath in the cemetery records, but there is a large underground

                         burial vault with "J.L.Schwickerath" on a boarder threshhold stone. There are no records for this vault or its contents.

                         There is a Cpl. Peter Joseph Schwickerath,  Co. K, 23rd NJ Vol Inf.  (21NOV1827-20JAN1913). There is a notation

                         that the New Jersey Adjutant General records list him as JOSEPH.  This may be who is on the list. A search of online

                         NJ payment vouchers produces two hits for "Joseph" in Co. K, 23rd NJ Vol Inf,  nothing for John. 

                         J.L. and Peter Joseph are in two separate lots more than 140 yards apart.

Line 32    Sprecht, Charles   should be SPECHT                   Corp. Co. A, 1st NJ Lt. Art. Vols.      unknown-22APR1885 Germania

Line 35    Washow, Fred   should be  WASCHOW, FERDINAND                                     26MAR1825-02MAR1912   EHC-Cem

                        (many of our records have Ferdinand abbreviated to Ferd.or Fred. for the same person.)

                                                                                          Line 36   Weisserborn, Francis    should be WEISSENBORN, FRANZ   (Franz on headstone/aka "Francis")

                                                                                             Sgt. 2nd N.Y., Battery Y          22JAN1826-28MAR1887


Many of our Civil War veterans served in other states. We are fortunate that many included their units on the headstones. 

In some cases, such as William Hohneisen, a relative had his discharge paper. In the late 1880s it was found that many burial records were

 never forwarded to the state and the local records are also missing during this period. Shortly after this was discovered,

 the state removed the cemetery from the Glouscester Farm & Town Association ownership and assigned it to the City Clerk of the 

City of Egg Harbor City.

Thank you for taking the time to maintain this site. I know how much time is required.
