References & notes

Basic information from State of New Jersey1. He has a stone in the Jesse Chew/Eastlack Cemetery in Sewell, NJ. He may have been reinterred in New Jersey, or this may be a cenotaph "in memory" of him. Thanks to Jeffrey Gellenthin for his work in the cemetery and photo of the stone on Facebook.
