Eagle Scout Mapping Project
In May 2013 Benjamin DiBuduo, a Boy Scout with Troop 63 in Woodbridge, completed his Eagle Scout Project which mapped out the graves in the Old Section of the cemetery. Ben used stakes and strings to divide the land into a grid, then organized a group of scouts to locate and identify each grave marker within each marked section of the grid. He then drew a map in Computer Assisted Design (CAD) software and, with the help of Daniel Centore, loaded all the data collected from the scouts into one final document. In identifying gravestones, some of which are no longer legible, Ben used the documents created in the early 1930s as part of the federal Works Project Administration (WPA) to guide his work.
