Restoring a Legacy .....
Restoration is greatly needed to perserve this landmark and to revive a "forgotten Legacy" in the neighborhood of Centerville.
PLEASE join Friends of Butler Cemetery Association in restoring the Legacy by making a donation through Heart of Camden http://www.heartofcamden.org/
OR you may donate building materials to replace hairpin fencing, benches, cemetery markers and walkways.
Thank you for your support!

Non Profit Awareness ---- THAT'S WHAT L3 COM EAST IS ABOUT!
Thanks to the research of Ann King, I was able to add to the display, Camden NJ Civil War Recruitment posters, copies of Pension records, and a copy of the original black and white photo of James Hardcastle's (interred at Butler) 25th Regiment (of which he just may be present).
Many had never heard of Dempsey Butler and welcomed the opportunity to learn more about his accomplishments and philanthropic contributions to early Camden City. One such visitor was Richard Stern shown below acquiring Cemetery literature and the MUCH sought after "Friends of Butler" 2010 Calendar!
