I realize that your post is a few years old, but, nevertheless, I thought I'd post a response, hoping that you are still reading posts on this forum. My mother, Helen J. Sims (née Kanouse) showed me where the cemetery is located, but now I'm not able to remember exactly how to get there. I know the road, but not where the path is. We went there in the early '80's. She was a direct descendant of Jacob Kanouse. Jacob and his brother came alone from Germany as very young boys in the early 1700's. As the story goes, they were to be met by someone when they arrived in NYC, but the person never showed up. Another person "took pity on them" and brought them to Newfoundland where they grew up and later made their home. Jacob's brother moved to Michigan and Jacob built a house up the road from the current Kanouse homestead in Boonton Township. The original house was abandoned and only the foundation remains. My mother passed in May, 2010 a week before her 91st birthday. She lived her entire life in the Kanouse homestead in Boonton Township. Her father was Frank Kanouse and her mother was Edna Kanouse (née VanDuyne) from Montville, NJ. She and her sisters Elizabeth "Biddy" Bott and Olive "Ollie" Stickle were the ninth generation of the Kanouse family to live there.
