“THE MARY ELLIS GRAVE” New Brunswick, NJ
Mary Ellis’ (1750-1828) Her grave currently is in the parking lot of a Loew’s movie theater. Her family home use to stand at this location but eventually became the site for the Route 1 Flea Market, and later the Loews Movie Theatre. Her grave now sits in the movie theater parking lot, and now rests about seven feet above the level of the parking lot after the site was regraded for development.
According to oral tradition, Mary was seduced by a sea captain who vowed to return to marry her. He never returned and she would come to the spot where her grave now stands, each day, to look for his ship in the Raritan River in New Brunswick.
