Meet the man who brought an abandoned historic cemetery back to life

Posted Feb 07, 2020
By Peter D’Auria | The Jersey Journal

Before digging a grave, you have to make sure the ground isn’t already occupied. John Wilson, the caretaker at Jersey City and Harsimus Cemetery, has a tool for this very purpose: a thin metal bar, about four feet long, shaped like an upside-down L.

A funeral was scheduled for Feb. 3, and around 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 1, Wilson was testing the plot, jabbing the bar into the ground at different places to see if there was anything already buried there.
