      Dorothea's death certificate (scanned to FamilySearch) states she is buried here (Palmer Cemetery). Dorothea "Dolly" B. Yates was the late wife of Lorenzo Yates. Her and Lorenzo had several children, and they lived in Philadelphia, PA.
      Before Lorenzo, she was married to Nicholas Painter, as her 1st husband.
      She had one son with her first husband, named Nicholas Painter, Jr.
      Dorothea is the daughter of Andrew Ketchum and Judith Ketchum (nee Jeffryes) of Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey.

      Dorothea's father died between 1833-1835, then her mom Judith remarried to Daniel Bueye/Booye, and he died shortly after they got married.
      Dorothea's mother, Judith, was a daughter of John and Judith Jeffryes (nee Steelman). Her father, John, served as Private in the Gloucester County NJ Militia in the Revolution.

      So, Private John Jeffryes is grandfather of Dorothea. In the Atlantic County NJ Deed Books, Dorothea's mom Judith quitclaimed her right of dower in 1845 to Dorothea

      Officially known by the name of Kensington Burial Ground, the local name of Palmer Burial Ground is known more widespread.

      Palmer Cemetery, AKA Kensington Burial Ground, was established early as a free neighborhood cemetery by the town's founder, Anthony Palmer (c. 1673-1749), an English Merchant. Although originally laid out in the early 1730s, it was not established as a public cemetery until after his death. In 1765, his heirs followed the terms of his deed of trust to establish a free cemetery for residents of the original town of Kensington.
      Located in what is now called Fishtown, the cemetery is bordered by Belgrade Street, East Palmer Street, Memphis Street and Montgomery Avenue.
