Blauvelt Cemetery (Old Burial Ground of Harrington Park)
Bergen County, New Jersey

12 Tappan Rd
Harrington Park NJ

Lat: 40°59'18"N, Lon: 73°58'25"W

Contributed by Richard Hrazanek, Nov 15, 2002 [rhrazanek@yahoo.com]. Total records = 95.

The cemetery is located on a hill, on the north side of Tappan Road, just west of Arcadia Court. The entrance to the cemetery is just left of the historical marker. There are stairs made of railroad ties that lead you up, to the top of the hill.

Once at the top, you will see the stones with tall trees and bushes between them. This old family cemetery appears to infrequently maintained. There are saplings and thickets that appear to be around two years old popping up every where. Someone had made small hand painted wooden signs for the graves that have become unrecognizable, but unfortunately they to have started to decay. Fortunately, there is very little sign of vandalism.

The cemetery is owned by the Borough of Harrigton Park. The address for the borough is 85 Harriot Ave., Harrington Park, NJ 07640.

This family cemetery contains the names of some of the earlies families that settled in Bergen County, like Blauvelt, Degraw and Demarest. The historic marker in front of the cemetery says that the first burial was in 1722 and that the cemetery contains the graves of veterans of the American Revolution and slaves. A small hand made wooden sign in the cemetery says that the land was once owned by Garret Blauvelt.

An asterisk * appears for the names I found on an old survey done by George Budke in 1916, where I did not find any evidence of the stones when I walked it in October, 2002.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
