Cemetery Reveals New Mysteries about Sargent Family

This past week I received notification from a Find a Grave volunteer, Jessica Thomas, that she had been in Evergreen Cemetery in Hillside, NJ, and had photographed all the graves in the plot in which the Ludeys and Trewins were laid to rest. [Note: William Trewin married Elizabeth Sargent so there are Sargents there as well.]

There was one big surprise. I had known that William Sargent Jr. (b. 1861) was buried there and that presumably the Sarah there was his sister (b. 1858). Curiously the photos revealed that the Sarah buried there was actually William Sargent Jr.’s wife: Sarah Jane Bowley. I’d no idea he had married for one thing, so that was quite a revelation. Now what was even more interesting to me were the following:
1) Sarah Jane was seventeen years older than William Jr.
2) The couple was married in 1890 when William was 29 and she was 46.
3) William died in 1896, of what I do not yet know, but it will be interesting to find out. Sarah died eight years later, at the age of 60.
4) Sarah Jane Bowley (b. about 1844) shared the same surname with William Sargent Sr.’s second wife Mary Bowley Pitt (b. 1839, widow of Pitt). Did father and son marry sisters?!

The Trewin-Ludey plot was purchased by William Trewin and Francis Ludey in 1886, yet Thomas Trewin Sr. (d. 1875) and his wife Mary Anne Phillips (d. 1878) are buried there. Perhaps they were moved there from elsewhere?

William Jr.’s sister Sarah is obviously buried elsewhere, I presume with a spouse. The photographs confirm that William Sr. and his first wife Mary Wills (d. 1877) and second wife Mary Bowley Pitt are definitely buried elsewhere. Perhaps there is a Sargent plot in Evergreen holding Wm Sr. and spouses, and even Sarah. (Update 4/29/12: see newer post about Sarah a.k.a. Sadie.) (Update: See Button hook post)

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
