A Leverich Family Historian's Thoughts[edit]

From Tom Leverich of New Jersey, July 26, 2018

...I am pleased to hear from you. Your interest in the Leverich Family Burial Ground is appreciated. I am interested in any effort to preserve the burial ground site. Several previous efforts have not been successful, primarily because there is an ownership issue with the City of New York. I would like to see the site classified as a public historical site, with an application filed to qualify as a National Historical Site.

As a Leverich family historian, I would also be interested in seeing an archaeological survey conducted. Such a survey could include ground penetrating radar to locate burials, and DNA testing of remains which could provide significant information on early generations of the Leverich Family.

I can see that you have visited my web site, which also includes a narrative report of the burial ground, which provides significant additional info on the site.

So, what is your interest and your plans? I would definitely want to be part of any preservation efforts. You can add this email, or portions thereof, to your wiki at your discretion.

Regards
