PHILIP MORIN FRENEAU CEMETERY

MATAWAN, MONMOUTH COUNTY, NEW JERSEY



Only two interments are known here, both on one monument. The cemetery is fenced in, well maintained and easy to find.

1. FRENEAU, PHILIP MORIN - died Dec. 18, 1832, a poet, aged 80 years, 11 months, 16 days;

He was a native of New York but for many years
a resident of Philadelphia and New Jersey

His upright and benevolent character
is in the memory of many and will remain
when this inscription is no longer legible.

Heaven lifts its everlasting portal high,
and bids the pure in heart
behold their God.


2. AGNES - died Oct. 18, 1817, age 91 years, relict of Peter Freneau, mother of Philip, widow of James Kearney.
