Bates Mill Cemetery 
In Winslow Township, Camden County, New Jersey dates back to 1740 (the date of the oldest grave) and is the home of many Revolutionary graves.  Although it has about 20 lots still to be "filled" it is primarily a historic cemetery.   

Our goal is to keep the cemetery looking trimmed and neat!  David Harvey has done a great job of making it a cemetery that we can be proud of..he is so faithful to keep the lawn mowed and the fence in good repair.  Many times he has to dig up sunken stones and reset those that fall over. Others have been faithful caretakers of this little acre, and I am so thankful that Dave is filling that role now.  

This "little plot of land" harbors a wealth of information for us today and for future generations.  Our (my) intent is to preserve it for them.  We have a number of old sandstones with initials carved into them. You may go to our "Unidentified Stone" page to learn more about them.   Please take some time and check out all of this website.  And there is always room to add your tidbits of family history.

Although  the number is dwindling, friends and families of those who have gone before still continue to donate $50.00 per year/per lot toward the upkeep of this "little plot of land."

It is our hope, that just as my Grandfather, Frank Davis Bates and my Mother and Father, Glenda Bates Fitting and John Henry Fitting had planned, that we can convince more of the next generation to take an interest and continue to donate after "we" have passed on.  Would you please share this need with your children and grandchildren?  Thank you.....Jean
