BUSH, PEARCE, PIERCE, QUACKENBUSH posted by Helen R. Herz on Saturday, December 6, 1997

Mark PEARCE (PIERCE) married Mary E. QUACKENBUSH in Newark in 1846. Mark was a tailor, the son of Henry Harrison PEARCE and Maria BUSH of Caldwell, NJ. Mary was the daughter of David and Mahala QUACKENBUSH. Her father, David, was a carpenter listed in Newark city directories from 1836-1864. David died in 1864 and Mahala in 1870. David did move the family to Jersey City for a few years in the 1850s, but returned to Newark in 1860. I am trying to trace the origins of this David QUACKENBUSH family, who may have migrated from Orange County, New York State. David was born in NY according to census records, though his wife, Mahala, and all children were born in New Jersey. It does not appear that our David QUACKENBUSH is directly related to the prominent hardware store owner David QUACKENBUSH from Paterson, NJ. Can anyone help me?

BUNNELL posted by Jacqueline Bunnell-Ogden on Friday, December 26, 1997

My ggrandfather, William Jackson BUNNELL, founded the Bunnell Funeral Home in Jersey City 1870. His son George BUNNELL took over when William died...probably in 1892-93 because he was listed in the JC Directory for the last time in 1893; the following year (1894) his wife Rachel appears. So, why can't I find a Death Certificate for him? Someone looked for me and there's no record of his death in JC or Hudson Co. Considering that the wake would be at HIS funeral home, isn't this rather peculiar? To add to the puzzle, the cemetery where we think he was buried has been moved... don't know where! The old location was at The Emory Methodist- Episcopal Church (no longer in existance) which we believe was located on Emory St. in JC in the 1890's, but later moved - not sure when - to 140 Belmont Ave. Then in 1945 a new church was built next to the site of the old one on Belmont. It is still there, but another Methodist Church has taken over ...and no one seems to know where the old cemetery is now! So where do I go from here? I would very much appreciate any help and/or suggestions.
