About a month ago, I sent in a request to te New Jersey State Archives requesting copies of Death Records of Jacob Green (1822/23 – 1897) and Michael Erbig (1814 – 1893) Both are my 3rd Great Grandfathers. About a week ago, I got copies of the records and here they are.
What’s great about these records is that it finally told me where they are buried. Micheal Erbig is in Flower Hill Cemetery in North Bergen, Hudson Co., NJ. I called the cemetery to confirm and they did have a record for him but no record of his wife Julia Arnold as being with him there. However, they admitted that the old records were incomplete so hopefully someone will fill the photo request I put in on www.findagrave.com and let me know if she is next to him there. Also on Michael’s record was the names of his parents, Michael and Anna.
Jacob is in Bay View Cemetery in Jersey City, Hudson Co., NJ. I’ve tried a couple of times to get a hold of someone in that office but no one is answering the phone when I call.
