Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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

- 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.

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

Rhinebeck Cemeteries
Thanks for the wonderful work you are doing Beverly. I'm coming to visit Rhinebeck next month from South Florida. My 6th great-grandfather was there in the 1790 Census but I haven't been able to figure out why or who his his wife was. Hoping to find some clues...

Kate T Bird 91093947
I was puzzled about Kate Bird's 1884 death and John T Bird's (121787033) obit
which said she survived him and several other paragraphs from the Gazette; November 23, 1895 the couple was contemplating spending the winter in Lansing, MI; July 23, 1910 "Mrs. John T. Bird since the death of her husband, has entertained her daughter-in-law Mrs. Thomas Bird of New York and accompanied her to remain in her home for a few days." Aug. 13, 1910 "Mrs. John T. Bird is disposing of her household goods and will go to Michigan to live with her people."

Finally found John T in the 1910 census for Rhinebeck with wife Esther. Evidently he remarried. I had inserted Kate's name in his obit. Would you change it to Esther?

RE: Emily Brown obit
I was puzzled by the use of her maiden name also. The only explanation I could think of was local pride in the Brown name, or one of the aging siblings wrote it. Emily was twenty when she married Levi and 73 when he died, and there's no mention of another marriage or adopted children.

There's a very interesting article about the Old Brown homestead, "The Orchard" in the Gazette from a DAR talk given by Mrs. Sumner (Genevieve) Spurling - her father was John C. Brown. I can't read the year on the microfilm but the issue was May 17 between 1916-1919 - I'll transcribe the article over the weekend and email it to you. The property was 3 miles south of the village and less than a mile east of the Post Rd. It also has a connection to Starr Miller- I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

RE: Roswell Beach
You're welcome. And to learn he's your 2nd great uncle is neat. It's too bad the photo with the article didn't reproduce - you have great photos with the other Beach's. The names definitely had me puzzled and I gave up trying to figure out who was who, never imagining you'd be related and know the answer.
