S-----, "M. S. 1805." 1805
North of this line the property-owner has removed headstones from the enclosure and used them in fences, horse-block, etc. South of the line the owner is Mrs. Amos D. Baker. Mrs. Baker has a tradition that this burial ground belonged originally to a Lutheran Church, and she states that her father (John Williams, born 1803) attended services in the building in his boyhood, the building being torn down approximately 1815-1820. The several histories of Dutchess County make no mention of a Lutheran Church in Beekman but page 233 of liber 2 of deeds in the office of the County Clerk is recorded a deed, dated September 10, 1749, whereby Colonel Henry Beekman made a gift of site, church-building and burial-ground at this very spot for a Lutheran congregation. Further information about this congregation might possibly be gleaned from records of the Lutherans in New York City.
