Spring Valley Cemetery (Behnke Farm Cemetery) (Sluck Up Cemetery)
Bergen County, New Jersey

Contributed by Richard Hrazanek, Mar 20, 2003 [rhrazanek@yahoo.com]. Total records = 66.

The cemetery is located east of Spring Valley Road and west of Behnke Brook. There is a Bergen County Historical Marker Sign on Spring Valley Road for the cemetery, but the cemetery can not be seen. Access is gained on Viola Road, through a path between 146 and 148.

This early cemetery contains sandstone and marble markers, many of which are illegible or broken due to time, pollution and vandalism. There are numerous holes do to ground hogs, further aiding in the destruction of the cemetery

The cemetery is owned by the Borough of Paramus. The address for the borough is Jockish Square, Paramus, NJ 07652 - (201) 265-2100.

This cemetery contains the names of some of the earliest families in this area of Bergen County, like Banta, Bogert, Demarest and Van Saun. The cemetery also contains the graves of two Revolutionary War soldiers and one Civil War soldier. The cemetery is on the land of the former farm of Gilliam J. Zabriskie, then later the Behnke family.

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 the cemetery in March, 2003.
