MACHACKEMECK GRAVESTONE INSCRIPTIONS, 
PORT JERVIS, ORANGE COUNTY, N. Y. 



Contributed by Royden Woodward Vosburgh. 



A copy of the gravestones in the Machackemeck Burying 
Ground was made by the Daughters of the Revolution in the 
month of June, 1908. This copy has been revised and corrected 
by comparison with the gravestones with the assistance of W. H. 
Nearpass. It is not a verbatim copy. All verses, epitaphs and 
words like *' Sacred to the memory " are omitted. The punc- 
tuation has been made uniform. In the older inscriptions some 
of the pecularities of spelling and wording have been preserved. 
A large number of the gravestones shown on the plan are foot- 
stones. They are designated by the letter F. and whenever 
possible the headstone to which each one belongs is indicated. 
A considerable number of the stones are without inscription; a 
few are so far gone as to be entirely illegible; these are omitted.
