Decker twins
It is very unfortunate that the infant rate (as well as the mothers) was so high back then. I guess we are lucky to be born when we were. My grandmother lost several babies..medicine just wasn't the same back then.

Tombstone Inscriptions from the Churchyard of the First Reformed Dutch Church of Fishkill Village, Dutchess Co., N. Y.,

There are two years of birth for her 1750 and 1756
Could please check it out and make the correction
on find a grave or on her memorial page. Much appreciated.

Isaac Holmes #67304336
Information on the Isaac Holmes family doesn't make any sense. You say that "Issac Holmes, died 3 Feb 1837" yet you have his year of death as 1847. Which is correct? Rachel Holmes #67304337 is connected to him as both his wife and his daughter. Caroline Holmes #67304335 is listed as Isaac and Rachel's daughter. If Rachel was born in 1758, she would have been 67 years old when she supposedly gave birth to Caroline in 1825, which isn't possible. Have you actually visited this cemetery to transcribe gravestones, or is all of this information based on a faulty transcript?

Hi Jay,

Thank you for your appreciation of Sophie Sherman's gravestone photo. Her Hebrew name and Hebrew date of death are on the stone. She is Slava daughter of Yisrael and she died on the 10th day of Tevet 5671.

Realized I had made a duplicate St Mary's Montgomery,Orange County,N.Y. on Michael J Fitzgerald
Memorial #93108503. I have additional edits I have submitted and added the grave photo. If you would be so kind to review the edits,I will go ahead and remove my entry. Thanks. I usually do a search before I make an entry....was not so good this time.

Elizabeth Hasbrook, Shear #76270772
When I found your memorial I was sure I found who I was looking for. But after I looked at the stone I have questions.
Do you know if this is actually Elizabeth Swartout, daughter of Rudolphus Swartwout (early spelling Swartoud) and Geradina 'Diana' Brinckerhoff?
Elizabeth Swartout was born December 04, 1752 and died November 11, 1841. She first married Francis Hasbrook # 115163180 and second married Abraham Shear # 132971372. Some of her children are buried with their father in Pilgrim's Rest and others are buried in Fishkill.
I am sure this has to be her, but the stone is confusing. They must have meant daughter of Rudolphus Swartout, not Rudolphus Hasbrook.
Pleas let me know what you think.
Thank you for all your wonderful postings.
