I am working on entering all graves in the Rhinebeck Cemetery that are listed in the two comprehensive books compiled by Arthur C.M. Kelly of Kinship, Rhinebeck, NY http://www.kinshipny.com/|
- Rhinebeck, New York : death records of the 18th and 19th centuries by Arthur C.M. Kelly.
- Rhinebeck Association Cemetery : 20th century deaths / transcribed and indexed by Arthur C. M. Kelly.
Both of these books correct errors that are found an older publication of the cemetery records - Old gravestones of Dutchess County, New York / nineteen thousand inscriptions collected and edited by J. Wilson Poucher, M. D. and Helen Wilkison Reynolds.
As I work my way around the cemetery I am photographing as many headstones that I can find. I am also adding any interments that are not listed in the Kelly book, basically those after 1999.
I have two databases of interment records for the Rhinebeck Cemetery. I will be adding some of this information to existing records and adding records for those who are interred but who do not have a headstone.
I am happy to transfer management of any record not in my family. Photos can be copied freely for private use.

I appreciate all that you do so much! I just ran across "Kerk Hof" Cemetery, and can't recall if I've brought this to your attention in the past, or not. Have we had this conversation before?
Some of the graves here are also listed under its proper name, "Van Wagenen Ground", and were added after you created this batch of memorials.
"Kerkhof" is a generic term for "cemetery", so this place has been labeled "Cemetery Cemetery". In the deed, the place was called "Evert Van Wagenen's Kerkhof" (=burying ground).
Source: "Genealogy of the Van Wagenen Family from 1650 to 1884:..,
by Gerrit Hubert Van Wagenen.
There's a description of its location here:
I've thought of the place, and of my ancestors who settled around there, every time I've taken the train over the years. I wish I could have visited it. (I moved to the other end of the continent a few months ago.)
From what I understand, burial grounds in NY state cannot be owned by private owners, so I assume it's landlocked by private property.
It's wonderful to see the place fully transcribed and put into memorials, and I feel it would be a tremendous service to descendants of Kips, Van Wagenens, Roosas, Eltings, Van Ettens, et al, if the more descriptive name were used.
Thanks again for all the wonderful work you do.
thanks for the info - much appreciated.

You're welcome and thanks for the info about the name variation - it's certainly something that creates a challenge for genealogists!

Yes, it is difficult when there are multiple marriages. You can't put it with the maiden name as it will show in italics, and to add it to the middle name puts it before the maiden name. Thanks for your consideration.
|Irisheyes||RE: Sarah Ann Spies Baker FAG 144575397|
Yes, you are correct. However, I think I said Kip Baker, not Kipp. The reason I did that was that I have seen her name that way in some newspaper articles, however, if you want to keep it just Baker that's fine. I understand it's to be the way it is on the stone.
Thanks for the clarification.

Thank you so much for the wonderful photos! Your time and effort is very much appreciated by our family!
|Daystcat||RE: Rhinebeck Cemetety stuff|
Glad to hear it! It's fun for me to remember so many people and places in Rhinebeck. I could almost smell the Schaad's butcher shop! I'm getting it from the newspaper collection held at http://www.fultonhistory.com.
