|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
On the grounds of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Historic site . . . . immediately behind Bellefield Manor as you enter the Park. Park Rangers themselves are not certain as to the cemetery's origin or its occupants, but feel that they were likely servants of the owners of Bellefield Manor. Several stones, all broken, lay piled along one side of the original wall of the cemetery.
Follow-up: This is also known as "Crooke's Ground"
Charles Crooke (son of Charles and Ann Rutgers Crooke of New York City-, born 1735, died 1772, established a country residence at Crum Elbow, Dutchess County. The estate was known as "Crooke's Delight." Within its boundaries this family burial ground was laid out. The enclosure contained at one time a number of stones, of which only twelve were found in 1871 and five in 1911.
