Hi Bob,
Again thank you. My Asher Brown is buried in Glen Dale Cemetery, Bloomfield, Essex Co., NJ. He married his wife, Sarah Jane Van Sickle in Rahway, May 27, 1868 and she is buried there. I have nothing more on Asher Brown (b. circa 1846). He just appears and disappears so have no idea where to search for his family. He is not connected to the Hunterdon Co., NJ Asher Brown, also b.1846. Because of the Asher name in the Conn. Cemetery Brown line, I am looking for a connection there.

On the Old Rahway Cemetery list there is no listing for two of Asher Brown/Sarah Jane VanSickle's children who are supposed to be buried in the Van Sickle plot. I don't see them listed under the Brown surname on the list either. Perhaps they never had markers.
A Male son who d. Oct 1872 (unnamed infant)
Frank Brown - b.1869 d. Oct.31, 1874

I live in the Finger Lakes area of NYS so I'm not familiar with the Rahway area. I'll get more involved with research after the holidays.

Merry Christmas and Happy Health New Year,
