THE WYCKOFF BURYING GROUND

Copied Sept. 10, 1916, by Marian E. Beats.

This yard is in Readington Township two miles east of Flemington, opposite Rockafellow's Mill. The earliest mention I find of this as a burying ground, is in a deed from the heirs of Phebe Kline, deceased, to Jacob Dilts, dated Feb. 27, 1840 (Vol. 94, page 194), where the "one quarter acre reserved for a burying ground for the neighborhood people" is mentioned. The farm has been owned since 1889 by John P. Kugler. It is stated by old residents that there are at least fifty unmarked or unlettered graves. About twenty may still be seen.
