Contributed by Judith Williams, Jul 31, 2003, updated Apr 16, 2004 [rositatwo@aol.com]. Total records = 64.

Directions: take route 70 southeast out of Medford NJ for almost 2 miles, turning left onto Chairville Rd. The cemetery is on the right or east side of the road right after after you make the turn onto Chairville Rd.

The Peacock Cemetery dates back to the 1700's and was originally the Prickett Family burial plot. In 1772 one quarter of an acre was set apart by Elizabeth (Prickett) Peacock, widow of (John Peacock, who died in 1759 & buried in Saint Andrew, Mt Holly, N.J.)

In 1826 John Sharp and wife, Mary Peacock (granddaughter of John & Elizabeth Peacock) deeded an additional 78/100's of an acre to Adonijah Jr, John, and other male relatives who had married Peacocks, $5.00 was the consideration to have and hold forever for the sole use and purpose of a burial ground for future descendants.

The Peacock Cemetery first interment was James Peacock, according to family records but markers indicate that an Alexander Peacock was buried at the Peacock Cemetery in 1737. There were 89 recorded stones in 1928 by the NJ Genealogical Society. At present an ancestor to the peacocks (from the Abrams family) is helping to maintain the grounds seasonally.

Additional records and the history were provided Apr 16, 2004 by a Peacock family member, Les Wright, then combined with my records to help give us the most complete reading we can have at this time.

My readings were taken from all the stones that were readable on Jul 30, 2003. There were others which I could not decipher. The additional records were transcribed in Nov 1979, and last updated on Mar 24, 2004, by Jeanette Wright, wife of Wayne Wright and sis-in-law to Les Wright.
