Swartout Ground

 

Special Thanks to Holice Young for transcribing this work!

SWARTWOUT GROUND

CLASSIFICATION: Family ground.
LOCATION: At Swartwoutville, on the road between Brinckerhoff and Fishkill Plains.
CONDITION: Overgrown and deserted.
INSCRIPTIONS: 1 in number. Copied by J. W. Poucher, M. D.
REMARKS: Swartwout ground. A stone wall surrounds a large enclosure and also divides the space through the center. In one half are several unmarked field stones. In the other is a single large slab of slate, removed from its original position and leaned against a tree. The slab bears the one word: "Swartwout". It is probable that removals have been made from this enclosure. In the colonial period the Swartwouts were prosperous, early residents here. "Swartwoutville" was a name given to a locality rather than to a particular settlement.
