In the Spring of 1992, Don and Clare Radz set out to copy the important data from the stones of cemeteries in the 14 towns of rural Rensselaer County. But it soon became apparent that they needed help. The Latham Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints agreed to join in the project. The result of this project was the compilation of the data into books that were presented at regularly scheduled town meetings to each of the towns. The following towns were included in the project: Berlin, Brunswick, East Greenbush, Grafton, Hoosick, Nassau, North Greenbush, Petersburg, Pittstown, Poestenkill, Sand Lake, Schaghticoke, Schodack, and Stephentown. Please note that Troy cemeteries are NOT represented here and will not be until the information is made available to me. There are 93,274 names at this time.
This project could not have been completed without the co-operation of many people. Thousands of hours were volunteered. The enthusiastic co-operation of Town Historians, Town Supervisors, Cemetery Managers, Pastors and Priests was evident and was VITAL to its success.
NOTE: Interments are listed alphabetically by surname. Information is presented in the following order from left to right: last name of decedent; first name of decedent; birth date; death date; age at death; name of wife; name of husband; name of mother; name of father; town of burial; name of cemetery; and comments. You will need to scroll right in order to view all the information provided. Not all information is available, and some spaces are left blank.
