Vail Cemetery
Morris Co. Up


The Vail Cemetery (aka Parsippany Presbyterian Cemetery) is located on the corner of U.S. Route 46 and Vail Road in Parsippany. The inscriptions found on this page are only a sampling of stones that are contained in this cemetery. The condition of the stones range from stone dust and shards to very good, this is especially noted if you compare the information on this page (1999) with that from the transcriptions (1938). If you have additions to this page, please send me an email with the information and I will add it to the page. Click on the photo's to see a larger picture.
