Saturday, July 15: Matawan

Stanley Fisher and Lester Stillwell have separate funeral services. Both are interred at Rosehill Cemetery in Matawan.

The Fisher family used money from a life insurance policy ($7,500) Mr. Fisher had recently received – in exchange for work for a client – to purchase a stained glass window for the front of the Methodist Church. It was dedicated in July 1918 and damaged by a local blast five months later. In the 1970’s, the church was demolished and the window was auctioned off to the highest bidder to a private collector. Its current whereabouts are unknown.
