And an epitaph for Mary Thorne, wife of Langford Thorne. Also, John signed in 1856, what he called his family register and states "ON THE 25th AUGUST 1797, I MARRIED LUSANNA, THE DAUGHTER OF LANGFORD THORNE OF NEW CORNWALL, COUNTY OF ORANGE AND STATE OF NEW YORK.

> Your information of Langford and Mary living in New York and having a son Abraham and a daughter Susanna dying Feb 1820, the same month and year is too coincidental for it not to be them. The date of 10 or 19 February could just be an error and I came up with Lusanna, due to handwriting. The L in Langford and the beginning of the name for Susanna looked too much like an L instead of an S. But I have no proof otherwise unless you do. I'm very eager to hear further from you regarding this info. I too, have been in constant contact with Eilene Thompson in SLC, Utah, and a Dan Eastmond from South Dakota, regarding the family and they both are from Johns second marriage to
Margaret Lawrence. I have quite a lot of info on John and the family as my Great Great Grandfather Edward 1804 was Johns executor and he kept all papers of Johns. I grew up in Monmouth County, New Jersey and have found John's family burial ground, which was on the family farm, and have pictures of John's oblisque.
> If you would have any pictures, I am very interested and if you would, send me copies, which I'd be more than glad to pay for? I have a picture of John and if your interested I'll scan it to you. My family have never seen a picture of my grandfather Garrett Edward 1880-1937 on back. Except now for John and Margaret, which Eilene Thompson was kind enough to share with me. I would love to see Lusanna/Susanna or any of the family pictures if there are any that exist.

JOHN CAME FROM ENGLAND IN 1794-5 AND LIVED IN NEW CORNWALL AND THEN NEW YORK, AND THEN MIDDLETOWN, MONMOUTH COUNTY, NEW JERSEY. THAT IS WHERE I WAS BORN AND LIVED UNTIL 4 YEARS AGO. THERE IS A FAMILY CEMETERY IN MIDDLETOWN, OR PORT MONMOUTH AS IT IS NOW CALLED, AND JOHN ALONG WITH MARGARET AND 26 OTHERS ARE BURIED THERE. BUT NOT LUSANNA. I WONDER IF YOU WOULD HAVE HER BIRTH DATE AND PLACE OF BURIAL. IN SOME OF THE LETTERS I HAVE JOHN WROTE TO HIS SON EDWARD, AND LUSANNA WAS WITH EDWARD IN NEW YORK AND WAS VERY ILL, JOHN ADVISED EDWARD TO KEEP HIS MOTHER THERE UNTIL SHE COULD MAKE THE JOURNEY HOME. THAT WAS IN LATE 1819 OR EARLY 1820 AND SHE DIED IN MAY, 1820. I DON'T KNOW IF SHE DIED WHILE WITH EDWARD OR IF SHE DID MAKE IT HOME AND DIED. BUT SHE IS NOT BURIED ON THE FAMILY PROPERTY.

> FROM JOHN'S SECOND MARRIAGE, ONE OF HIS SONS (ELBERT) MARRIED AND LEFT NJ FOR UTAH AND THE MORMON'S. HIS FAMILY REMAINS THERE STILL AND I'VE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH A DECENDANT. SHE HAS BEEN GREAT.

VERY INTELLIGENT AND SPOKE AND WROTE LATIN, FRENCH AND ENGLISH. HE THEN BECAME AN
ACCOUNTANT AND THEN A LAWYER. HE PLAYED THE VIOLIN AND LOVED MUSIC, MATHEMATICS AND FARMING. SOMEHOW THEY DON'T SEEM TO GO TOGETHER, BUT IT WAS A GENTLEMAN'S FARM HE ENJOYED, PLANTS AND FLOWERS.

Hi Kari: All the info is correct, except John Eastmond's middle name. You have it as Allen and it's Allin after his maternal grandmother. Thanks for everything. What site is John Thorn on? Also, John Eastmond wrote Thorne with the E in his letters and that dates back to 1820-1830. Just thought you would like to know that. Talk to you soon. I'll be off for a week or so, going to NJ and visit my children and relatives. Regards, Ginny
The Eastmond Burying Ground, Port Monmouth, Middletown Township, Monmouth County, NJ
Researched and transcribed by Trevor Kirkpatrick / photography and page design by David Podmajersky
The Eastmond Burying Ground is located at the end of Wood Ave. and York Ave. in Port Monmouth, Middletown Township, Monmouth County, NJ. The burying ground is on a wooded lot and has been badly vandalized to a point that very few grave markers still exist. The first survey of the lot was conducted by Dr. John E. Stillwell about 1860. The author's first survey was conducted in a heavly wooded lot in May 1986 and again in the Spring of 1990. Only six grave markers could be found and several footstones were still in place. The author had been informed that several garve markers had been removed in the past by people in the area using the stone for fill. The author could not prove this except the fact that very few stone fragments could be found.
The burying ground was first started by Jacob Covenhoven Jr. of Middletown with the death of his son Jacob in 1802 and was located on the east side of the family's 159+ acre farm. On July 3,1818, Jacob made his last will and testiment and stated the following "son William to have use of farm and other sons and daughters to have home with him for three years which it is to be divided between them." The will was executed on November 9, 1818.
On February 21,1831, William sold the farm for $2500.00 dollars to John A. Eastmond, an accountant from New York City. The farm consisted of two lots which ran alog Pews Creek on the west side near Shoal Harbor (Port Monmouth). The first lot consisted of 88 acres and the second lot consisted of 71 acres and the burying ground. The deed states the following "Saving and reserving out of the tract last described one quarter of an acre of land for a burying ground to be laid out in a square form at the place at present occupied for burials."
On August 7,1856, John A. Eastmond died and made his oldest surviving son, Edward Eastmond of New York, the executor of his estate. The last will and testiment of John, made March 13, 1845 and, set forth on August 7, 1856, instructed Edward to "sell the land at his option." So on December 4,1856, Edward sold to his brother John S. Eastmond of Middletown for $3,714.75 dollars approximately 46 26/100 acres of the farm tract with the family burying ground. The deed states " reserving out the above description of farm twenty five hundredths of an acre for a place of burial where the burying ground is now located." The farm and burying ground remained in the family, being purchased by Franklin H. Eastmond from John S. Eastmond in 1861 for $6,637.08 dollars and remained in the family of John Franklin Eastmond at least up though the 1960's. In May 2001, the Monmouth County Sheriff's Department, using convict labor, cleaned the cemetery lot and placed a fence around the entrance area off York Ave.
Some of the burials in this Cemetery are:
Mary Eliza Willett, daughter of John and Euphemia (Covenhoven) Willett of Port Monmouth, Middletown Township, Monmouth County, NJ, born March 8,1790 in Port Monmouth and died January 10,1872 in Port Monmouth aged 81 years, 9 months and 2 days.
John Allin Eastmond, son of Edward and Martha (Farrendon) Eastmond of Kintbury, Berkshire, England, born January 16,1772 in Kintbury and died August 7,1856 in Port Monmouth aged 84 years, 6 months and 21 days. He was a Teacher when he first came to America on October 15,1794 from England and settled in New Cornwall, Orange County , New York where in 1797 he married his first wife Susanna, daughter of Langford Thorne of New Cornwall. He soon after went into banking and was an accountant, as well as, an attorney . John resided, after his second marriage to Margaret Lawrence, in Staten Island from 1822 till early 1831. He then moved to Port Monmouth in February 1831 with the purchase of the Jacob Covenhoven farm. Epitaph: " Beneath this stone to worms to prey; Himself as poor and low as they; John Eastmond lies in hopes of rest; He denied all further hope a jest; and near on fancy's wing could rise; to heav'n built mansions in the skies; Content from whence he spring to lie; Nor wish's to live nor fear'd to die." ~ Photo
Margaret Eastmond, daughter of Silas and Miriam (_____) Lawrence of Flushing, Queens County, NY and 2nd wife of John A. Eastmond of Staten Island, Richmond County, NY, born February 3,1777 in Flushing and died April 17,1836 in Port Monmouth aged 59 years, 2 months and 14 days. Epitaph: " Underneath this stone doth lie as much virtue as could die, which when alive did vigour give, To as much virtue as could live. She was Margaret Lawrence the wife of John Eastmond. She died on the 17th April 1836. much repretted." "Spectator No.33" (reference to the newspaper obit) ~ Photo
