Peacock Cemetery, Chairville, NJ

Peacock Cemetery is a private cemetery at the intersections of Chairville Road and Route 70 and Skeet Road.  It is on the Northeast corner of the intersection behind a small house, currently a horse clothing business.  The cemetery is maintained and is active, containing recent burials.  The cemetery contains some broken stones, and some which are impossible or nearly impossible to read.  We were able to record all of the readable stones.

The cemetery bears a NJ historical marker, Number 16, which commemorates the death of Adonijah Peacock while making gunpowder in 1777 (for George Washington).

We were met by a descendant of one of the persons buried in the cemetery, who spoke of a church that had existed near the cemetery at some time in the past.  He also told us that there were fewer stones than in the past.
