Interments in Dutchess County Cemeteries before 1880

The following are just a few of the old cemeteries located in Dutchess County. Most of the listings are taken from Poucher's "Old Gravestones in Dutchess County" which does not have listings for the more modern cemeteries. The following are listed under the closest town and then alphabetically by cemetery name. PLEASE NOTE: I have no information about these cemeteries, their exact locations, or who has the burial records. If you know of any errors in these listings, please e-mail me with the corrections. Lynn Brandvold.

 Added May 6, 2002Ginny Buechele has posted modern cemetery inscriptions which she has transcribed herself on Ginny's Genealogy Home Page. Scroll down to the middle of her page to see the links to these cemetery inscriptions.

The American Local History Network (ALHN) also has listings for Dutchess County Cemeteries, some are duplicates but most are not. The site coordinator for the ALHN Dutchess site, Debbie Axman and myself have put a search engine on both sites which will search all the cemetery listings at both sites with one search.
