The Aumack Family Burying Ground, Hazlet, Monmouth County, NJ
Researched and transcribed by Trevor Kirkpatrick / photography and page design by David Podmajersky
Located in the backyard of 15 Virginia Avenue, Hazlet, Monmouth County, New Jersey is the Aumack Family Burying
Ground. The cemetery was started in 1841 with the death of William Henry Aumack's wife Christiana. There are approximately
20 burials in this plot which measures 90 feet by 50 feet.
On June 1, 1811, William Henry Aumack purchased 42 acres from his father-in-law, John W. Hoff for 100 dollars.
According to his wishes, after his death in 1849, the farm was conveyed to his son, Jacob Aumack, on June 16, 1849. It was then
divided amongst the other children.
On July 29, 1852, William Hoff Aumack and John H. Aumack made a mutual exchange of deeds for 1.00 for 26 and half acres
of their share of the farm. According to the deeds "excepting and reserving a lot for a burying ground beginning at the south
corner of the present graveyard as fenced in Amos Walling's line thence westerly at right angles to said line fifty feet thence
northerly parallel to said line ninety feet thence easterly to said line at right agles fifty feet thence southerly along said line
ninety feet to the beginning which said lot is reserved for the use of the Aumack Family as a burying ground forever."
In 1933, the cemetery was located in the center of a field on the farm of Amelia Walling. By this time only 12 markers were to
be found, when Mrs. Jennie Wise of Newark, Essex County, NJ recorded the markers. She was the great granddaughter of
Thomas and Elizabeth (Aumack) Bedle. In 1928, Williard Wilson Aumack had plowed the wooded markers over for several of
the family members buried there to make more room for crops. In 1991, Trevor Kirkpatrick made a survey of the cemetery. It was located
in the backyard of 15 Virginia Ave. Permission had to be gained to view the cemetery. Of the original 11 white marble markers
only two were standing, that of William Henry and Leonard Aumack, and one very large granite marker belonging to Catherine Bailey
Aumack. The owners of the house take care of the plot when they can. When the author returned in mid 2000, the two white marble
stones were no longer standing. Below is a transcript of those buried in the cemetery from Mrs. Jennie Wise's 1933 survey and
additional information from the author's survey and research.
