Maureen McEveley - died age 9 ,Sept 1963
Posted by: Jill Date: February 11, 2001 at 12:26:04
  of 12

Long story short, a distant cousin of mine was a witness to a car accident in which her best friend (they were 8 at the time) was hit and killed crossing the street. This girl's family soon moved to Ramsey (from Westwood, Bergen co). When the girl was killed my distant cousin was obviously distraught, and more so because the family of her dead best friend did not want to see her. This all happened a long time ago (sept 1963)

She remembers that the girl's father was an attorney. Their last name is very uncommon: McEveley

The girl's name was Maureen McEveley and the accident happened in early Sept. 1963 in Westwood, Bergen County at the intersection of Lafyatte and 4th Ave.

Would it be possible for anyone to look up a newspaper obituary and an article on this event? Apprently the driver of the car was an off-duty police officer. My cousin would very much like to contact the family.

Thanks.
