Ponds Reformed Dutch Cemetery

In Oakland, Bergen County, New Jersey

Orange Beads

NOTE: Since the baptismal and marriage records for the Ponds Reformed Dutch Church in Oakland, Bergen County, NJ have been destroyed, any cemetery list involving this church is most beneficial. The following was a list done around 1909 and explains why some of the people in the cemetery do not have death dates. They were still living at the time of the transcription. My thanks goes to Ruth Romaine, historian of the Ponds Church, for supplying me with this list.
