This information was provided by: Sharon Murray.
While searching for my family roots I recorded many grave markers from two cemeteries in New Jersey. Holy Rood Cemetery is located in Morristown, New Jersey and St. Mary’s is located in Boonton, New Jersey.
I have grouped the stones to enable easy identification of family members. While the groupings are specific to my needs they should serve the needs of anyone researching these families.
All the notes specify the type of grouping and include the information on the stones themselves. If I knew, positively, of the relationship to others I have noted the relationships, all of my notes are in ( ).
This list will be expanded into a family bible, of sorts, as soon as I begin to trace and relate the individuals.
Holy Rood Cemetery, Morristown, NJ
MURRAY/POWERS, this is a two sided stone, on one side is MURRAY, the other is POWERS.
COONEY, this is a family grouping with one large family marker stone.

The following was supplied by Sharon Murray.
I have some additional burials for Holy Rood cemetery. These come from records I received from Assumption Church in Morristown.
What is nice about this listing is the cause of death is included for many, as well as plot information, therefore I will double up on my previous list.
