Interments in the TOMPKINS GROUND

"Old Gravestones of Dutchess County, New York" by J. W. Poucher published in 1924, page 125.

Note: Some of Poucher's listings have been found to be inaccurate, so use these with caution. If you find any inaccuracies in this listing please send them to me so that I may correct them. Lynn Brandvold  Thanks. There are 2 Tompkins graves which have apparently been moved to the Union Cemetery in Hyde Park, so perhaps all 5 of these graves have been moved.
