Section 1

The Maplecrest Cemetery (formerly known as the Big Hollow Cemetery) is located along the west side of County Route 56, three-tenths of a mile from the intersection of County Routes 40 and 56, in the hamlet of Maplecrest, Town of Windham, Greene County, NY. The name of the hamlet was changed from Big Hollow to Maplecrest on May 23, 1921. Burials made prior to this date should be recorded in your genealogical records as having been made in the Big Hollow Cemetery, as this is what will appear on death certificates and in newspaper accounts. Burials made on or after that date should be recorded as taking place in the Maplecrest Cemetery.

The cemetery is enclosed by a stone wall across the back and left side, and a chain-link fence across the front and right side. There are two entrance gates. This section, located to the left of the first gate, was added to the cemetery in the spring of 1904.

The April 21, 1904, issue of The Windham Journal stated, "Work has begun on the new cemetery grounds. Manly Mallory is laying out three tiers of lots in good shape and has taken the wall away from between the new and old ground, and will lay a nice wall on two sides of the new ground. A committee has been appointed to try and raise money enough to place an iron fence front to both the new and old cemeteries, and to otherwise improve the old ground.

Many in this locality have friends buried there, and it is desired that all interested will do their part in contributing towards a long needed improvement. Wm. H. Moseman and J. F. Moseman are the appointed committee to raise and receive money from any desiring to give."

 I have only listed the gravestones found in two of the three tiers mentioned in the newspaper article. The third tier is located to the right of the gate and will be included with the old section. Manly Mallory was given his choice of burial plots in exchange for his labor. Ironically the first person to be buried in this section was his wife, Ella Joslin.

These inscriptions were read on August 26, 2000, by Patricia Morrow, the Windham Town Historian. Each row was read from left to right, starting at the front of the cemetery.

Section 3 (newest section)

Within twelve years after the plots in Section 1 had been laid out and sold, it became necessary to enlarge the cemetery a second time. This parcel, bordering the oldest part of the cemetery on the north, was purchased. It is located to the right of the second gate. Like Section 1, it too was laid out in three tiers. Full lots were ten by twenty feet and originally sold for fifty dollars. Half lots were ten by ten feet and cost twenty-five dollars.

These inscriptions were read on November 4, 2000, by Patricia Morrow, the Windham Town Historian. Each row was read from left to right, starting at the front of the cemetery.

Section 2 (oldest section)


According to page 406 of the History of Greene County, New York, with Biographical Sketches of Its Prominent Men, published by J. B. Beers & Co., 1884, reprinted by Hope Farm Press in 1969: "The present burial ground in the village of Big Hollow was donated to the society at that place by Harry Avery early in 1827, and consists of about three-fourths of an acre of ground. The first person buried here was Mrs. Avery, the wife of the donor, in April 1827. The cemetery is kept in nice shape and is surrounded by a substantial stone wall." Note that her gravestone says that Lydia, wife of Harry R. Avery, died on April 26, 1826.

The deed from Harry R. Avery and Charlotte, his wife, and Alfred Gardner and Hannah, his wife, of Windham, to Zalmon Hitchcock, Erastus T. Peck and Silas Beach, Trustees of the Second Presbyterian Society in Windham, was recorded at the Greene County Courthouse in Catskill, NY on February 12, 1838, in Liber Y of Deeds at Page 309. At that time the land was already occupied by the Second Presbyterian Society of Windham for a meeting house and yard, and contained about half an acre.

These inscriptions were recorded in October and November 2000, by Patricia Morrow, the Windham Town Historian, and supplemented by a list of inscriptions compiled in the mid 1950s. This oldest section is located between the two entrance gates. All rows were read from left to right beginning in the front of the cemetery. Gravestones with just initials have been omitted unless there were no other stones for that person.

END OF SECTION 2
Supplement to Maplecrest Cemetery

Individuals without gravestones who are known to be buried in the Big Hollow/Maplecrest Cemetery. Compiled from burial permits, death certificates, newspaper items and obituaries.

1. Andrus, infant son of Madison & Minnie (Payne) Andrus - d. 3 Apr 1885, 1m

2. Barnum, baby (male) - d. 30 Nov 1961, premature birth

3. Briggs, infant child of Alpheous & Emma (Burke) Briggs - d. 1 Apr 1886, 2m 20d

5. Gorsline, Margaret B. (Holcomb) dau of Homer & Margaret (Benham) Holcomb & wife of Richard P. Gorsline - d. 13 Jan 1872, in her 46y

6. Hitchcock, infant dau of Lemuel & Sarah (Phelps) Hitchcock - d. 23 Sep 1884, 12 hours

7. Hitchcock, John son of Lemuel & Sarah (Phelps) Hitchcock - d. 12 Sep 1887, 17y 6m 8d

8. Holcomb, Homer F. son of Lot & Susan (Barker) Holcomb - d. 20 Jun 1902, 79y

9. Joslyn, Palmer son of Levens & [unknown] Joslyn - d. 17 Sep 1894, 74y
his wife, Sarah "Sally" Ann Ham dau of Jacob C. & Catherine (Parkman) Ham - b. 10 Jan 1817; d. 28 Jun 1894
Palmer & Sally Joslin were attended by a physician who failed to report their deaths to the Windham Town Clerk. Delayed death certificates were filed on 15 Apr 1895 by their brother-in-law, Martin Ham, husband of Sally’s sister, Malinda Ham. Unfortunately neither certificate states where they were buried. They lived less than a mile from this cemetery, so it seems likely that this would have been the most convenient place unless they were buried on their farm or in the Windham Cemetery with their son, John M. Joslin.

10. Mallory, Irving son of Cyrus & Emma (Simmons) Mallory - d. 12 Oct 1955, 66y 5m 26d
