Ernest Ludolph Meyer (August 26, 1828 - April 3, 1902) was a German American civil engineer, surveyor, and mapmaker. Born in Horneburg, Lower Saxony, Germany, Meyer arrived in the United States in 1851. Meyer served as City Surveyor of Elizabeth, New Jersey, for nearly thirty-five years. He planned Elizabeth's entire sewer system and devised the changes abolishing crossings at Elizabeth by the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Central railroads. Meyer's maps were recognized for their 'historical accuracy'. Meyer also designed Evergreen Cemetery in Elizabeth.
