The following was added on 11 Aug 2009 by Pat Tuminello.

May 22, 1950 (What I have in my files is a copy of the article which was clipped from the paper with the date hand written on the top.  This is what I have figured out when I looked at a perpetual calendar:   May 22, 1950 was on Monday.  Since the article says he died on Monday, then May 22, 1950 would be the date of death.  The burial would have taken place on Wednesday, May 24, 1950, again based on the article.)

William Keegan

Funeral services for William Michael Keegan, 70, who died suddenly Monday at his home at the West End, were held at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday from the home of Mrs. Williamson, conducted by Rev. J. B. Spivey.   Interment followed at the Broxton cemetery near Leonia.  Mr. Keegan had lived here for about 6 months, coming to this place from near Westville.

Survivors include a son whose address is not known.   Page Funeral Home in charge.

I believe this may be the last burial in Broxton cemetery.   The grave is not marked; however, I have spoken with several elderly residents in the area who attended this funeral.
