Red Hook Methodist Burial Ground

(Click here for Google map - not named on map - north of Cherry Street near center of image)

The Red Hook Methodist Burial Ground is a small cemetery located in the village of Red Hook, Dutchess County, NY, on Cherry Street.  This is northeast of the intersection of Market Street and Broadway and can be reached by going through the grocery store parking lot just north of the old Triebel's Garage building as the cemetery is just a block or two behind (east of) it.  Beware of the poison ivy growing around the edges of the cemetery and on the fence in some places.

Alternate directions from Findagrave member Julie Lake:

"From the main intersection (Market & Broadway), just head north on Hwy. 9 (N. Broadway) for one block, and take the first right (east) onto Cherry St. (Right is the only way you can turn onto Cherry.)  Go east, and in one block cross Graves St.  Go another half block east, and this cute little cemetery will be on your left."

I noticed this cemetery on a visit in May of 2002 and was surprised that there are apparently no surveys of it online.  I photographed some of the stones and uploaded them below.  On a more recent visit in October of 2009, Mom and I tried to do a more complete survey.  I am sure that we must have missed some as there appeared to be at least one or two whole plots where there was no trace of any markers.  The cemetery appears to be kept up, but not used recently.  The latest death date that I saw on any of these markers was 1946.

There may have been a Methodist Church on or near this spot at one time, but for many years the Methodist Church in Red Hook has been located on the road leading out of the village to the west.

As far as I know, I am not related to any of the individuals below.

Red Hook Methodist Burial Ground
Grave Stones

This was not originally a complete listing of all the stones in the cemetery, just the ones that I happened to have photographs of (I noticed the cemetery and happened to have some extra film to use up at the time).  Mom and I were in the area again in October of 2009 and tried to do a more complete survey this time.  Some of the photos have been digitally manipulated to increase contrast and make them more readable.  As far as I know, I am not related to any of these people and I have no further information on any of them.

    Rokeby servants' graves  Three graves of servants that worked at the nearby Rokeby estate.

  1. Mary Ellen Dalton  DALTON, Mary Ellen.  "A native of Washington, D. C. who lived for thirty years at Rokeby, dying there in June, 1923."  Inscription at the top of the stone:  "In quietness and confidence shall be your strength."

  2. Augusta Nord  NORD, Augusta, "of Gothenberg, Sweden, who died in December, 1927, having lived 35 years at Rokeby."  There is a two or three line inscription at the top of the stone that was too eroded for me to read.  " ... for they shall ..."  A previous visitor had apparently used chalk on the stone to make it easier to read.

  3. Mary Meron  MERON?, Mary Beva??  (died) " ... at Rokeby".  Stone is very eroded and difficult to read.

  4. George Andrews  ANDREWS stone.  Very eroded, lots of lichen, very hard to read.  I tried to bring the inscription out digitally, but it didn't seem to help much.

  51. David Kilmer and wife  KILMER stone, heavily encrusted with lichen.  The stone had been cleaned off and was easier to read when we returned to the cemetery in 2009, although I don't seem to have taken a photo of it on that visit.

    5. The fourth side (Daniel and his wife Mary A. are on the same panel) of this monument has a long inscription on it instead of an individual's name and dates.  I didn't get around to transcribing it.

  61. Nicks monument  R. B. NICKS monument - tall white marble column with draped urn on top.

    1. Richard Nicks  NICKS, Richard B., born Nov. 8th, 1825, died Oct. 3rd, 1875.  "(Our?

    3.  George Paulmier  PAULMIER, George, died Jan. 13, 1882, aged 40 yrs, 7 mos, illegible inscription.  Probably a Civil War veteran.  The only military records that I can find for a George Paulmier are for a George F.

    There is a soldier of this name listed in U.S. National Homes for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, 1866-1938 as having been admitted to such a home in Bath, Steuben County, New York in 1901 at the age of 65 years.  He had been in the Civil War in Company H of the 91st New York Infantry, discharged in Albany, NY on August 12, 1865. He was in the home due to disability contracted "since the war", but the handwriting is difficult to make out as to the nature of the disability.  He had been living in Red Hook after his discharge from the military and was widowed at the time of his admission to the home.  His occupation is listed, but I can't make out what it says.  His nearest living relative was his daughter, Mrs. Annie Possinger? Barringer? Roeninger? of Red Hook, NY. The record confirms his death date as February 9, 1902 of hemiphlegia? - daughter notified by telegram.

    Sherman - Showerman - Schowerman stones  SHERMAN / SHOWERMAN / SCHOWERMAN graves.  These may be three different spellings of the same family name.
