LASSIFICATION: Churchyard.
LOCATION: In the city of Poughkeepsie, on the east side of East Mansion St.
CONDITION: Good.
INSCRIPTIONS: 108 in number. Copied November 6 and 7, 1914, by J. W. Poucher, M.D.
REMARKS: This yard is the property of St. Peter's Church (Roman Catholic) and was in use from 1841 to 1884. About 1825-1835 emigrants from Ireland became numerous enough in Poughkeepsie to form a well defined fraction of the population and in 1837 they erected a church building. The burying ground an East Mansion street, a parochial cemetery, is the resting place of a number of the first generation of Irish Immigrants to this locality. The inscriptions of the later cemetery, owned by St. Peter's parish, on Salt Point Road a little northeast of the city of Poughkeepsie, are not included in this work as they fall within the period of more careful record keeping and are easily accessible.

Additional listings have been added thanks to Roberta McDonald.
