MIDDLEBUSH CHURCHYARD

CLASSIFICATION: Churchyard.
LOCATION: Between Wappingers Falls and Fishkill Village, on the east side of the main highway.
CONDITION: Rough and unkempt.
INSCRIPTIONS: 97 in number. Copied November 21, 1912, by J. W. Poucher, M. D., and Miss Helen W. Reynolds.
REMARKS: Known as Middebush cemetery. Before the war of the Revolution there was a Baptist church at Gayhead in the town of East Fishkill. In `1782, this was abandoned and a new congregation was organized which erected a church at Middlebush. One pastor served for a time both at Middlebush and at the Union meeting house at Green Haven in the town of Beekman (q.v.). In 1826 the "meeting house lot" at Middlebush was sold and, in 1830, the church building was purchased by the Methodists. The building was used by the Methodists 1830-1869 and was finally torn down.
