  • Notes 
    • Camden County was formed on March 13, 1844, from portions of Gloucester County.

      Waterford Township was originally created by Royal charter on June 1, 1695, while the area was still part of Gloucester County. On March 13, 1844, Waterford Township became one of the original townships in the newly-created Camden County.

      The Ancestry database "U.S., Quaker Meeting Records, 1681-1935" at
      for New Jersey - Camden - Newton Preparative Meeting - Register of Interments, 1813-1885
      has the following entries
      3 Nov 1822 Parker, Ellis' child
      8 Jan 1826 Ellis Parke (assumed to be Parker)
      11 Jan 1846 Sarah Parker
      26 Jun 1862 Howard Parker

      I have assumed the Ellis Parker that died 8 Jan 1826 is the cirrect person based on circumstancial evidence that Sarah was his wife and Howard was their son.

      It seems likely he was buried in either
      Old Camden Cemetery (Also known as Friends New Newton Burial Ground, New Newton Meeting Burial Ground, Quaker New Newton Burial Ground)
      Find-a-Grave https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/100151/old-camden-cemetery
      or
      Newton Burying Ground (Also known as Newton Union Sloan Cemetery, Old Newton Friends Burial Ground )
      https://www.findagrave.com/cemetery/1275992/newton-burying-ground

      I could not find him in either and also note it's possible these two cemeteries are actually the same cemetery.
