T&M Associates Foundation to Cleanup Historic Cedar View Cemetery in Lincroft on Wednesday

(LINCROFT, NJ) -- T&M Associates Foundation will clean up a historic cemetery in Lincroft that many residents may not even know exists.  It's the Historic Cedar View Cemetery, which dates back to 1850 and is an African-American burial ground. The cleanup takes place on Wednesday, August 17, 2022 from 8:30am to 12:00pm.

The cemetery, located at 58 Hurley's Lane in Lincroft, is over 2 acres of land, comprised of 24 family plots. It is estimated there could be over 200 individuals buried at the cemetery. Ten men whom are buried there, some born free, and other born slaves, served with the “Colored Troops” during the Civil War.

Friends of Cedar View is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was established to preserve and protect the over one hundred and seventy year-old African-American Cedar View Cemetery in Lincroft, New Jersey; to ensure the continued solemnity of this hallowed ground; and to bring increased awareness of the cemetery's unique historical and the overall cultural value that it brings to the public. 

Last year, T&M Associates of Middletown celebrated 55 years and to celebrate this they formed the T&M Associates Foundation. A big part of the Foundation is doing volunteer work. They also like to focus if possible on Diversity and Inclusion.

Performing volunteer work at Historic Cedar View Cemetery is the perfect fit. There will be members of the organization coming from various locations to take part in the clean-up. Mayor Tony Perry of Middletown was instrumental in bringing together T&M Associates with the Friends of Cedar View.

The Friends of Cedar View are in constant need of financial support to continue their research, maintenance, and restoration. They are hoping to raise enough funds in order to conduct Ground Penetrating Radar “GPR” Survey of the property, so they can accurately determine the number of graves and their locations. The Friends of Cedar View use the T. Thomas Fortune Community Center in Red Bank as their home base where there is a display and some donated artwork. There is presently a Cedar View Cemetery display at the Red Bank Public Library.

Donations are welcome at their website: cedarviewcemetery.org and checks can be made out to “Friends of Cedar View, Inc.” Mailed to: Friends of Cedar View; PO Box 371, Lincroft, NJ 07738
