INSCRIPTIONS IN ST. DAVID'S CEMETERY. 

COPIED BY CAPT. W. H. D. BLAKE. 



What is known as St. David's Cemetery at Lincolndale, in the Town 
of Hamptonburgh, was primarily the burial ground established by St. 
David's Episcopal Church about 1773. It seems to have been chosen 
from its proximity to the family residence of Rev. Hezekiah Watkins, 
the first minister of the Church of England in Newburgh (1752), who had 
a station here. There is evidence of many interments, but the following 
are the only remaining headstones, which are all of red sandstones. 
Tbey stand in the following order: 

12 3 4 5 6 7 



The inscriptions read:

who departed this life on the 9th day of December, in the year of our
