WASHINGTON COUNTY (NY) POORHOUSE CEMETERY

NUMBERED STONES -- D - F
Note: Information in the last column came from the entry in the actual interment lists UNLESS it is in parentheses. The interment lists gave quot;nationality"However, any information in parentheses comes from an Inmate Registration Certificate which gives only "birthplace".

Note: Six stone numbers were never assigned (possibly broken before use?): 128, 139, 140, 169, 199. Four stone numbers were assigned twice -- highlighted below: 45, 104, 149, 178.  The assignment of one stone (202) was too illegible to be read.

It must be noted that in this entry on the interment list mention is also made of burial at Kingsbury.  However, there is no reference to any other body being assigned this stone number -- and the stone still stands on a grave in the cemetery. It seems likely that, at the time the entry was made, it was assumed that burial would be elsewhere. However, that may not have happened and subsequently this stone was assigned and burial carried out at the poorhouse cemetery. That seems logical; but we will appreciate corrections if anyone has further information.

104 00002 DUTCHER CORDELIA 65 2/11/1908 SENILITY   AMERICAN
This number (104) appears to have been assigned twice -- also to someone whose name is illegible and who died in 1906. It seems logical to assume that the person who died earlier may have been exhumed and buried somewhere else.
102   DUTTON JAMES 42 9/27/1905 CONSUMPTION   IRISH
17 01387 EAGAN THOMAS 36 2/15/1895 DELERIUM TREMENS   (NY)
149   EDIE BENJAMIN 72 4/4/1915   from GREENWICH  
This number (149) appears to have been assigned twice -- see also ALEXANDER HOUSTON who died 2/8/1915. It seems logical to assume that the body of Mr. Houston may have been exhumed for reburial elsewhere. The stone with that number could then have been used for Mr. Edie.

186   FITZGERALD JOHN 73 10/9/1920   from HEBRON IRISH
It must be noted that in this entry (186) on the interment list mention is also made of burial at Hebron. However, there is no reference to any other body being assigned this stone number -- and the stone still stands on a grave in the cemetery. It seems likely that, at the time the entry was made, it was assumed that burial would be elsewhere. However, that may not have happened and subsequently this stone was assigned and burial carried out at the poorhouse cemetery. That seems logical; but we will appreciate corrections if anyone has further information.
