The Parker plot, high on the steep hill...

Our plot high on the hill...

MacPelah's Cemetery was in a lovely picturesque farming town called North Bergen, New Jersey. To the west of it there were rolling green hills  overlooking the New Jersey waterways, and to the east it was flanked by the majesty of the mighty Palisades. Its artistic landscape may have stirred up Cunningham's (my great great grandfather)memories of his beloved Ireland, and MacPelah's must have surely seemed a little bit a of Heaven and home to him.
