I made an extra photo copy of the Merryall Cemetery Burial records; which I will get to you this coming spring. We are Florida snow-birds; so it will have to wait until we get back home in April or May. These records are fairly complete. Although; some in the very beginning may have used the cemetery and they may not have been recorded. I have also found where ashes have been buried by families and monuments later erected that were never recorded.
Merryall Cemetery is seldom used today. Most of the families that did use the cemetery now use the Camptown Cemetery. The Merryall Cemetery Assn. has not met in 20 years or so and outside of me the directors are all dead. I take care of its business which is mainly getting someone to mow it.
The Ballibay Cemetery that is near the middle of our farm does not have burial records. All that remains are a list of plot owners and a map. I also have the original association minutes and deed. The last meeting of the association was held in the early 1950s. All of the board members are long dead. The Township of Herrick takes excellent care of the cemetery. The association ran out of money years ago. The last burial was in 1953. Many of the families that used the Ballibay Cemetery now use the Camptown Cemetery. I believe that I have a copy of the map which I shall also send to you I might add that the Township also takes care of a small cemetery in the center of Herrickville and another in what they call South Herrick. There was a church, long gone, at the South Herrick site.
There are four other cemeteries that I am aware of in Herrick Twp. They are the Durand Cemetery, private, Overpeck Cemetery, private, The Catholic Cemetery in Mercur, and the East Herrick Cemetery, still being used.
