Katherine L. Perez
Katherine’s project is to locate and record the graves or markers of veteran's in the Union Cemetery in Washington Township. She led a team of volunteers into the cemetery and located and recorded all of the information on the grave stones. They were photographed and their GPS locations were recorded. Some graves were much deteriorated. They had to be researched in the cemetery office. When the field work was finished, the data was organized and given to The VFW, the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Hackettstown and Washington Township Historical Society and the Cemetery Office. This project is a living legacy to our veterans.
