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 by location and then alphabetically. NOTE: I have no information about these cemeteries or who has the burial records. However if you know of any errors in these listings, please e-mail me with the corrections. Lynn Brandvold.

The American Local History Network (ALHN) also has listings for Dutchess County Cemeteries, some are duplicates but many are not. Check this site for listings you don't find here.

To see photos of some of the Dutchess County Cemeteries visit John Dux's Dutchess County Cemeteries.
