WASHINGTON COUNTY (NY) POORHOUSE CEMETERY

NUMBERED STONES -- S - Z
Note: Information in the last column came from the entry in the actual interment lists UNLESS it is in parentheses. The interment lists gave "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 (198) on the interment list mention is also made of burial at Salem. 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.
214   WILLIAMS WARREN 70 8/24/1923   from JACKSON  
It must be noted that in this entry (214) on the interment list mention is also made of burial at Greenwich. 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.
18 01046 WINCHEL(L) (JASEN) ? 89 4/24/2895 OLD AGE   (NY)
244   WINCHELL ISAAC 85 2/5/1929     AMERICAN
It must be noted that in this entry (244) on the interment list mention is also made of burial at "Argyle Cemetery". (It is uncertain whether this meant the poorhouse cemetery or a cemetery in the town of Argyle where the poorhouse was located.) 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.
