A New Book From The Enoch Crosby Chapter

Gravestones of Revolutionary War Patriots in Putnam County, NY

Each year more of the gravestones of Revolutionary War veterans buried in Putnam County become unreadable. In an effort to preserve these stones for future generations of Americans, the Enoch Crosby Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution has completed a project to locate and digitally photograph as many of these gravesites as possible.

The book contains color photographs of the gravestones of proven and suspected Revolutionary War patriots buried in Putnam County, NY. Of the 403 patriots listed, 325 have been found and photographed. Those with proven service have been marked with a star. The description of each stone includes name, birth and death dates, spouse's names and DAR number.

All 52 cemeteries that contain Revolutionary War patriots are included. The work is sorted by cemetery name for each town and includes an index.

This work is dedicated to all the Revolutionary War Patriots buried in Putnam County whose dedication to American principles contributed so much to the founding of our great country.

The publication of this book has been timed to coincide with the celebration of the 200th anniversary of Putnam County on June 12, 2012.
