Clayton Thompson Cemetery - Lincroft, New Jersey

This cemetery, where many of my uncle's ancestors are buried is located on Hurley's Lane, near Newman Springs Road, in Lincroft, Monmouth County, NJ. To locate the cemetery from the Garden State Parkway, proceed into Lincroft on Newman Springs Road (Rt. 520) turning right at St. Leo's Roman Catholic Church. The cemetery is less than 100 yards from Newman Springs Road on your left just past the church's school.


Back in 2001, the Monmouth County Sheriff put convicts to work cleaning up many historic cemeteries around the county, including this one. What a great way to put convicts to work (there is a similar program here in the Austin, Texas area)!
