The Holmanville cemetery is located across East Veterans Highway from the Holmanville Mormon Church
(Faith Bible Church). The cemetery which measures 113 ft. north to south by 96 ft. east to west does not
appear to have been the church's cemetery, but rather a family burial ground. The Faith Bible Church does
maintain the cemetery but says it is owned by an association and there are still burials conducted here.
The cemetery is believed to have been the family burial plot of Daniel Perrine, jr., son of Daniel and Mary
(Martin) Perrine of Freehold Township, Monmouth County, NJ. Daniel settled in the area probably about 1759
when he married his first wife, Sarah Holman whose family owned a large tract in the area. It is this family
for whom Holmanville is named.
The earliest grave marker found was a rather large ironstone field marker with
"SP 1805" carved into it. This stone along with about a dozen others were found piled in the southeast
corner of the cemetery. "S P" is believed to be Sarah Perrine, born 1738 and died August 4, 1805. Daniel
who was born about Oct 5, 1735 and died August 1, 1819 at Holmanville is also believed to be buried here
along with his second wife Susan Garrison.
Many of those buried here in the north part of the cemetery are are related directoty to Daniel Perrine, jr.
or are generally related to the Holman family. All new burials are in the southwest part of the cemetery.
