BURYING GROUNDS 



OF 



Sharon, Connecticut, Amenia and North 
East, New York 



BEING AN ABSTRACT OF INSCRIPTIONS FROM 

THIRTY PLACES OF BURIAL IN THE 

ABOVE NAMED TOWNS 




Walsh, Griffen & Hoysradt, Printers 

Amenia, N. Y. 

1903 



PREFACE. 



A few years since (in 1897) a little book was published, entitled : 
" Bom, Married and Died, in Sharon, Conn." It was a record of the 
births, marriages and deaths gathered from old books of land records 
in the Sharon Town Clerk's Office. So few deaths, however, were 
recorded there that the book was not exactly what its title implied, 
and the promise was made that another should follow, giving records 
found on the headstones in the several places of burial in the township. 

While the inscriptions were being collected, a friend suggested that, 
inasmuch as there had been frequent intermarriages between people 
residing in Sharon and those of the adjoining towns of Amenia and 
North East, in New York state, the inscriptions to be found in those 
towns should be added, since it would materially increase the value of 
the work. 

This has been done, and the book now offered contains the records 
found in the many places of burial scattered over an area of not less 
than twenty miles square, of adjacent territory, lying on both sides of 
the line dividing the States of New York and Connecticut. 

To the friend to whom we allude, the entire credit is due for that 
portion of the work relating to inscriptions found on the New York 



4 PREFACE. 

side of the line. It a source of regret to the writer that this friend 
may not be mentioned by name in order that the readers of this 
volume might know to whom they are indebted for this last mentioned 
labor. 

The full texts of the inscriptions are not given, since this would 
make the book too large and expensive. Care, however, has been 
taken to give the names, dates and ages correctly, and the book is 
believed to be as free from errors as the average of such efforts. The 
inscriptions from each burying ground are printed together, with a brief 
description of their locality, and the condition of the headstones at the 
present time. 

The only index thought necessary is one giving the names and 
localities of the several burying grounds. The names will be found in 
alphabetical order. 

It is hoped and expected that a sufficient number of books will be 
sold to repay the cash outlay. The labor has been one of love, for 
which no better remuneration is asked than that derived from the sat- 
isfaction of being the means of preserving valuable records, which 
would otherwise soon be lost entirely. 

To some it is impossible to explain why such a work is undertaken, 
but there are others who appreciate efforts of this kind. To the latter 
class this book is respectfully dedicated.

THE SHARON BURYING GROUND. 



The "Sharon Burying Ground," as originally laid out, is only 
a small part of what has since been called " Hillside Cemetery." 
Just when it was first used for a burying ground, or from whom the 
land was purchased does not now appear. 

The first entry in our first book of record reads : 

" THE FIRST TOWN MEETING. 

The Inhabitance of Sharon aplying Them Selves to the genral 
asembly in October Last Past for Town Priviledges Cap Dunham Was 
mad Choice of to Represent the Town to the Asembly to Warn the 
Inhabitance to meet to gather in order To Chuse town officers Which 
Being dune the Inhabitance being met on the ii Day of December In 
ye year 1739 at the house of Nath'U Skinner In Sharon And then 
opened the meeting as the Law directs." 

Among the recorded doings of the above said meeting is the fol- 
lowing : " Nath Skinner and Lew Jabez Creppen chosen a Com'tt to Lay 
out A Beuring Place." 

If this committee made a report the records do not show it, but it 
is quite likely that the plot of ground at the north end of Sharon Street, 
now called the old part of the burying ground was the one laid out by 
the above said committee, and not long after the above said meeting. 

From time to time, as necessity had called for it, the original plot 
has been added to, until it has assumed its present proportions. It is

one of ten or more different places that either have been or are now 
used as places of burial in Sharon Township. 

The site was well chosen, so well in fact that no one has been able 
to suggest a better one. It is beautifully situated and admirably adapted 
to the use for which it was set apart. Until 1851 it was a grazing 
ground for sheep, cattle and swine that ran in the streets. In that year 
the Sharon Burying Ground Association was organized, and the neat 
and well kept appearance of the cemetery is due to their efforts.

Sharon. "He \ras a Methodist and was buried from that church. 
The ministers from both the other churches attended and re-

in their turn gave testimony to the help and encouragement 
they had received from the words and example of this good old 
man. He was entirely self-supporting and at his death it was 
found he had laid by a sum sufficient to defray the expenses of 
his burial and to pay for the enduring monument which marks 
his grave in Hillside Cemetery.

THE PINE SWAMP BURYING GROUND. 



Having heard it called the Pine Swamp Burying Ground it is given 
that title, yet there is nothing about the neighborhood to suggest the 
name. It is located on the left hand side of the road as one goes 
from Sharon to West Cornwall, on ground high and dry. A more 
fitting name would be the Smith Burying Ground, there being many 
of that name buried there.

THE CARTWRIGHT BURYING GROUND. 



This burying ground is known as the Cartwright Burying Ground, 
from the fact that people of that name owned the land all about it, 
and many of them are buried there. It is on Sharon Mountain, and 
the road leading past it is known as Ellsworth East Street. It is well 
fenced and very well cared for, and is still used as a place of burial.

THE MALCUIT FARM BURYING GROUND. 



On the farm of Charles Malcuit, on Sharon Mountain, in a pasture 
field, are two headstones inscribed as below. There are evidences of 
many graves that are not marked, but no one seems to remember any 
more about it than can now be discovered by a visit to it. It is large 
in area for a family burying ground, and doubtless was a neighborhood 
affair, before the one in the " Cartwright neighborhood " was used. 

Cartwright, Samuel, s. of Samuel and Abiel, d. Feb. 9, 1774, ae. 11 

mos., 9 dys. 
Hutchinson, Mr. Ezra, d. Feb. 28, 1799, ae. 40. 



BURYING GROUND IN TICKNOR'S WOODS. 



On the north side of the road leading from Ellsworth, East Street, 
to Ellsworth proper, is the original burying ground of the Ellsworth 
society. 

When it was first used for that purpose is not known now. The 
last burial there was a daughter of Joseph Lord, Esq., and was probably 
not far from 1778. The grave being filled with water so impressed 
Mr. Lord with the necessity for a more suitable place of burial that he 
immediately gave the society the land for the present Ellsworth Ceme- 
tery. He died in 1778, and his headstone recites the fact that he was 
the first person buried in the ground he had given. 

A forest of trees now covers the old place of burial, among which 
the rows of graves yet show. Many of them are marked by stones 
native to the place, only two having headstones with inscriptions. It 
would be interesting to know the names of these silent sleepers, but for 
that we must wait till the graves are opened and the dead arise. The 
two inscriptions found are : 

Roberts, Mr. Mark, d. Feb. 17, 1767, in his 84th yr. 

Roberts, Mr. Nathaniel, d. Jan. 16, 1766, in his 55th yr. 

Mr. Samuel Everett of Ellsworth says that the following were buried in 
this place : Adonijah Maxam, Amos Sanford, Joseph Lovell, 
Nathaniel Chapman, Deborah Lord, wife of Isaiah Everett and 
dau. of Joseph Lord, Esq. 



THE AMENIA UNION BURYING GROUND 

CONNECTICUT SIDE. 



This distinction is made so as not to confound it with another bury- 
ing ground at Amenia Union, and which is on the New York side of 
the line. It is on the outskirts of the village, on the road leading to 
Skiff Mountain. It is new as compared with the one on the New York 
side. It is kept in very good order. The inscriptions are :

THE ELLSWORTH BURYING GROUND. 



This ground was given to the Ellsworth Society by Joseph Lord, 
Esq., and his headstone recites the fact that he was the first to be 
buried in it. 

It is the common place of burial for a large section of the country 
roundabout. It has the appearance of being well kept and cared for. 
The headstones are in an upright position and the few that have 
become broken have been neatly repaired. It lies on the south side of 
the road between the two churches.

THE SKIFF MOUNTAIN BURYING GROUND. 



This burying ground is in Kent, but near the Sharon line. Some 
Sharon people are buried there, and for that reason it is included 
among the Sharon cemeteries. 

There are as many, and perhaps more, graves without headstones 
as with, and no record has been kept to show who are buried in them. 
The ground is kept in fair condition, but several headstones have 
fallen flat to the ground.

THE AMENIA BURYING GROUND. 



The old Cemetery of Amenia lies about a mile north-east of the 
present village. The Church Society to which it belonged was called 
" Carmel in the Nine Partners;" the building went by the name of the 
" Red Meeting House." The land for both was donated by Stephen 
Hopkins. 

All traces of the old church have long since disappeared, but the 
men who built it, and who worshipped in it lie in the little crowded 
Cemetery. It is to preserve their names inscribed on the rapidly 
disintegrating stones that this record is made. 

With a few exceptions, there have been no burials in this ground 
for nearly forty years. At one time it was greatly neglected, but now 
it is in good hands, and will be cared for in the future. Even the 
best of care cannot restore the fading lines of the quaint old in- 
scriptions, nor bring to light the missing names on some of the broken 
stones. There are two or three so broken that nothing remains by 
which to identify them.

THE AMENIA UNION CEMETERY. 



In the beautiful sunny spot a short distance west of Amenia Union, 
lie many of the early settlers of the " Oblong " valley. The cemetery, 
though one of the oldest in the town, the earliest stone being inscribed 
1749, is still used for burials, being in excellent order, and well 
cared for. 

The -'Oblong" church, where Rev. Mr. Knibloe preached so many 
years, stood on the hill east of this burying ground, almost on the 
Connecticut boundary line, many of his congregation coming from 
Connecticut. Amenia Union is sometimes called " Hitchcock 
Corners."

This is a small enclosure on the hillside above the "Steel Works," 
on the old road, half way between South Amenia and Wassaic. Here 
was buried in 1746, Mr. Richard Sackett, the earliest settler of Amenia. 
The stone that marked the spot has long since disappeared. The 
whole place is shamefully neglected.

BURYING GROUND AT SOUTH AMENIA. 



This Burying Ground is on the south side of the road, about midway 
between Amenia Union and South Amenia, near the site of the church 
built in 1786, from the remains of the "Round Top Meeting House,'' 
of Amenia Union, which for some reason was taken down at that time. 
This Church has since given place to a third, called the " New 
Church of South Amenia." 

Some of the headstones in this burying ground bear an earlier date 
than that of the erection of the Church, but this may indicate re- 
movals from other places. 

The ground is well kept and cared for, and is one of the largest in 
the town.

From Smith's History of Dutchess County, pp. 252-3: "Nov. 6, 
1751, nine persons constituted themselves into a Baptist Church in the 
Philipse Patent, now Putnam County. Here they were much dis- 
turbed by outside trouble. They were invited to remove to North 
East Precinct. The pastor and others visited this locality, and were 
pursuaded that 'God was calling them to go up and possess the land.' 
Here the cosy log-cabin overflowed with plenty, and here no standing 
order could bind the conscience. The reasons for removal seemed so 



SPENCERS CORNERS BURYING GROUND. 171 

weighty, and the invitation so cordial, that it was decided the change 
should be at once made. Previous to removal, however, they dismissed 
several of their number to form another church in the vicinity, over 
which Brother Cole was ordained as pastor. On the ist day of May, 
i773> they held their first covenant meeting in Northeast at the home 
of Rev. Simon Dakin, pastor, near ' Spencer's Clearing.' Here again 
they set up their banner, and for three years held public, religious 
services. * * * In 1776, they prepared to build a 

sanctuary. Simon Dakin, their pastor, donated them the land now 
occupied by the old grave yard at Spencer's Corners and on this they 
laid the foundation. * * * After Elder Simon Dakin 
had served the church for nearly 30 years, he was permitted in 1782 to 
see the greatest revival known under his ministry. He baptized thirty- 
one candidates during that year. In 1786, a single case of 'woman's 
rights ' was brought before the church, and a sister was excluded for 
not obeying her husband, and usurping authority over him. A serious 
division of sentiment occurred the following year, and a council met 
at their house of worship to advise with them. As a result fifteen were 
dismissed to form a new church, which they did at what is now North-

followed sadly his remains to their last resting place."

MORAVIAN BURYING GROUND. 



Only two headstones remain, of the many that once stood in the 
burying ground near the Mission House of the " United Brethren," at 
" Sichem in the Oblong." The inscriptions on them read Mary, 
wife of James Alworth, d. Feb. 24, 1794, in her 80th yr., and Ezariah 
Smith, d. Oct. — , 1784, ae. 67. A friend has furnished another, 
copied some 35 years ago, but which has since disappeared — James 

Alworth, d. , 1786, ae. 73. This old burying ground was on the 

Hiram Clark farm, near the western shore of Wequadnach (Indian 
Pond). 

On the Connecticut, or eastern shore of the lake was the village of 
the Wequadnach Tribe, and here, exactly over his grave, stands the 
Monument erected by the Moravian Historical Society, to perpetuate 
the memory of David Bruce, an early Missionary among them. It 
reads: "David Bruce, A Minister of the Gospel in the Church of 
the United Brethren, from Edinburgh in Scotland, Died July 9, 1749, 
at the Wequadnach Mission, Dutchess County, N. Y." The opposite 
face records the death of Joseph Powell, a later Missionary, who is 
buried at Sichem, and reads : " Joseph Powell, a Minister of the 
Gospel, in the Church of the United Brethren, Born 1710, near 
Whitechurch, Shropshire, England, Died Sept. 23, 1774, at "Sichem in 
the Oblong." 



VAN ALSTYNE BURYING GROUND. 



In the absence of any name it is given the above, which may be as 
appropriate as another, from the fact that the family owned the farm 
of which it is a part, and were among the first to be buried in it. 

William Van Alstyne was the first of the name in Dutchess County, 
and at one time his descendants were numerous. Only a memory of 
them remains now ; not one bearing the name, and only one descend- 
ant by any name is to be found in the County today.

SMITHFIELD BURYING GROUND. 



The burying ground at Smithfield, or " The City," as it is called, is^ 
situated on the opposite side of the road from the church of the same 
name. It is quite old, many of the inscriptions being nearly illegible. 
A large sum of money has been spent during the last few years in 
clearing the ground from underbrush, setting up fallen head-stones, etc., 
showing a great interest in preserving these old records. There was 
formerly another burying ground, older than this, adjoining the church.

of Millerton.

BETHEL CEMETERY. 



The four burying grounds at Bethel belong properly to Pine Plains, 
but as a few Atnenia people are buried in them, it seems fitting that 
they should be included in this list: 

The ground on the east side of the road is called the " Rowe 
Cemetery," and belongs by deed of gift to the " Rowe Family.'' It 
includes the site of the " Round Top Lutheran Church." The small 
enclosure adjoining it on the east is a private one. The ground on the 
west side of the road is used as a burial place for the neighborhood. 

The Quaker burying ground is a small one lying east of the old 
Quaker Meeting House. For further description of these Cemeteries 
see Mr. Isaac Huntting's " Little Nine Partners."
