EARLY CATHOLIC HISTORY IN ORANGE CO. NY  ( to be developed)
 
 

Early Catholic Burials:
    It was reported by ..... that catholics have been in the Newburgh Area since about.... (1818) and that St Patrick's Church was constructed in..... and the rectory constructed in....  followed by the St Patrick's Cemetery located on Broadway and "Stone St" now Prospect St. in 1852.  Prior to the establishment of the St Patrick's Cemetery early catholics had to buried in other cemeteries or family plots. The oldest cemetery is that generally known as " The Old Town Cemetery" on Grand Street in the city. It was probably used by the Palatine Settlers from the time of the erection on a part of the plot of the first church (the Lutheran). The cemeteries at Middlehope and Gardnertown are next in the order of time , St George's the fourth, St Patrick's the fifth, Big Rock the sixth" as stated by E.M.Ruttenber   pg 327.  It is believed that Catholics were buried in The Old Town Cemetery up to the establishment of St Patrick's Cemetery.
In The Orange County Genealogical Society publication, " Records From Newburgh, New Windsor, and Other Nearby Towns Volume TWO  Pg 151 in "Annotations" # (50) it was stated that " The sign of the cross or the letters I.H.S. on this and many other monuments indicates a member of the R.C. Church, which had no burial ground here at the time".

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):
Following are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about Catholic burial. The questions and answers do not necessarily reflect the opinion of our Church but are common in nature.

Who do I contact?
It depends if its a Church or Cemetery Matter.

Why should Catholics be buried in a Catholic Cemetery?
It is only natural that those who share the same faith in life will wish to carry on that sense of community in death. When it comes to the issue of death, the sensibilities and needs of catholics are unique and call for certain practices in the handling and care of the remains of the deceased. Therefore, in the sacred grounds of a Catholic cemetery there are safeguards - mandated by the Church's Canon Law - which guarantee permanence, reverence and respect for the remains of the deceased.

Who can be buried in a Catholic Cemetery?
Catholic cemeteries have a long tradition of dedicated service to the Catholic community including non-Catholic spouses, children, parents and other relatives.
If I'm divorced and remarried can I be buried in a Catholic Cemetery: or if a Catholic commits suicide, can he or she be buried in a Catholic Cemetery?
Yes on both counts. For more information, or if you have additional questions, please contact your parish priest.

Are there advantages to buying burial space before my family actually needs it?
Yes. By making arrangements in advance, Catholic families can avoid confusion at the time of bereavement and assure themselves burial with the location and arrangements they desire, and at a price they wish to pay. You will find our non-commissioned counselors knowledgeable and sensitive to your needs.

Should I buy space for the entire family?
Not necessarily. It has been our experience that generally, a husband and wife buy space for themselves. Children grow up, start their own families, and often move from the area. As a result, they usually make their own arrangements.
However, adult family members (such as parents and siblings) have the option to purchase adjoining plots to form a family group. Family plots for four or more people are also available and can accommodate larger headstones.
Crypts for full size caskets and niches for cremated remains may be purchased individually or in family groups.

Is there any chance my grave will be re-sold after a special number of years?
No. The purchaser has an exclusive and permanent right of use through an easement conveyed by the Catholic Cemeteries. This right passes to direct blood heirs immediately after the death of the recorded owner; although the spouse always has the first right of burial. This applies to all graves, crypts, and niches in the cemetery. Written permission of the heirs-at-law may be required for burial. It is advisable to secure permission in advance and place it on file in the cemetery office to prevent unnecessary stress at the time when permission is essential.

Do I Have to pay a monthly maintenance fee?
No. Cemeteries are under an endowment care system. A one-time endowment care fee is charged at the time you purchase a grace, crypt, or niche. The money is placed in a special trust fund, the proceeds of which are used to cover future maintenance costs throughout the Cemeteries.

If I move after purchasing, can I get a refund?
Yes, The Catholic Cemeteries the amount you prepaid. There is a nominal cancellation fee which is deducted from your refund.

Should I Choose a crypt or a grave?
Personal preference and/or family tradition influence choices in this regard. Above ground entombment in a crypt building appeals to many people, including those who aren't comfortable with traditional below ground burial. Indoor mausoleum crypts are conducive to visitation in inclement weather.

What is cremation?
Cremation is the reduction of the body of a deceased person to recoverable bone fragments through a process which combines intense heat and evaporation. The fragments are then pulverized and referred to as "cremated remains" or "ashes."

What is the Church's policy on cremation?
In 1963, the Catholic Church modified its long standing prohibition of cremation as a burial option. The new directives allow cremation to be chosen provided the choice does not reflect a denial or doubt about the Church's teaching or traditions about life, death, and resurrection. The Code of Canon Law (Can. 1176, No. 3) states: "The Church earnestly recommends that the pious custom of burying the bodies of the dead be observed; it does not, however, forbid cremation unless it has been chosen for reasons which are contrary to Christian teaching." In short, cremation is allowed to those who request in good faith.

How are services conducted for those choosing cremation?
Ideally, the vigil services and funeral Mass are offered with the body present. After the funeral Mass, the deceased is taken to the crematory by the Funeral Director. After cremation, the cremated remains are brought to the cemetery for burial or entombment. If cremation takes place immediately after death, Diocesan Policy on cremation states that a funeral Mass may be conducted, but without the cremated remains present in the church. In either case, the family may wish to have a committal service at the time the cremated remains are placed in one of our Catholic Cemeteries.

What about burial after cremation?
Many of the practices popular today - such as scattering of the ashes or the keeping of them in places other than a cemetery - are NOT in keeping with The Church's long tradition of respectful care and the proper burial of the bodily remains of our deceased. Cremated remains are buried or entombed in Catholic cemeteries according to the directives prescribed in the Christian Burial Guidelines of the Diocese. Our Catholic Cemeteries have garden areas for the ground burial of cremated remains, and marble niches are available in the garden courts. Many different types of marble niches are available in our mausoleums.

What kind of monument can I purchase?
Monuments must conform to the regulations which govern different parts of the cemetery. These regulations are not arbitrary, but are designed to both enhance the overall beauty and character of each section of the cemetery, and to facilitate the care of the grounds. Memorial benches are available in all our cemeteries.

How do I pay for my burial arrangements?
There are a variety of payment options and terms designed to give you the flexibility you need to remain within your personal budget. Cash, check, Master Card, and Visa are honored for your convenience. Terms may be arranged with a down payment made at the time of purchase, followed by monthly payments of up to one year interest free. Special terms also are available for persons in need. In special cases, when a family has no way to finance burial, the cemetery will inter the Catholic deceased without charge.

Does the cemetery have copies of the death certificates?
No. The document kept on file at the cemetery is called a "permit of disposition," and it is issued by the health Department Registrar in the country in which the deceased expired.

Record Keeping Histories:
NOTES ABOUT HOW THE RECORDS WERE KEPT:
ERRORS IN DATA ENTRY INTO DATABASE:
 
 

DATABASE Column by Column Descriptions:

Definitions & Terms:

 Single Plot:  Does not literally mean single, as in for single person but could mean for husband/wife and or infant children.
 Grave Full:  I believe this term is used to indicate that the designated number of burials has been reached. I believe that the number is determined by the number of burials per plot that are previously paid for (i.e. single plot compared to family plot) If  a person paid for two burials prior to interment then once two individuals (usually adults) are buried they would consider it a full grave.
 
 

Names may not be spelled correctly because of numerous reasons such as:
Entered wrong by caretaker  (Calvary: i.e. # 94 and 1063 same name but originally entered wrong “callahan, callan” )
Re-written wrong when transferred from old deteriorated books to newer books
Read wrong when entered into database
Hand writing was hard to read because of small print, old script styles, thick pen lines, etc..
The caretaker or whoever enters the information could only enter the information told to them. The information is only as good as what the family members tell the cemetery caretakers. They write down what they are told,,, so if a family member misspelled the name or gives the wrong age, etc.. then the information is wrong from the start.

The earlier entries are hard to read because of older script styles, and fancy writings.  Capital “L” looked like modern “g”,  and older “Q” looked like a number “2”, etc..

I have attempted to correctly spell the last names and to use the "  '  " accent mark when needed.  When you attempt to look for a last name that contains a ' mark such as O' Grady or O'Brien you must also look for OGRADY  and OBRIEN/OBREIN/OBRINE. I attempted to type exactly what was written on the documents but the care takers have not always used the ' mark when needed.

MY MISTAKES WHICH CONTRIBUTED TO WRONG INFORMATION:
1. Remark section cut off when I photocopied originals  causing a loose of information  as noted     “ ….missing info”   Some of the pages had bad copies or torn sections or cut edges.  REFER TO ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS FOR MORE DETAILS. ORIGINAL MAY BE FOUND IN EITHER CHURCH RECTORY OR CEMETERY OFFICE.

I placed the symbol “ ? “ near words that I could not read, had hard time reading or near words that I was unsure of their proper spelling.  I am not familiar with other nationalities last names and had hard time reading old style writing so some of the names that I am unsure of I placed a ? mark to indicate unsure of spelling.

2. Plot with numbers less than THREE digits should be suspect to entry error because plots numbers may have been cut off by bad photocopies.
3. I had entered data slightly different than originally entered.
Because in order to make it easy to “sort” by street names I had to enter house number after the street name. (i.e.. Originally written: 12 First St. was rewritten as  First St.  # 12)
If the original address was written as ( 12 lst St.) I rewritten it as First St. # 12.
Common abbreviations are sometimes elongated or shorted such as:
NYC: New York City
NW  : New Windsor  ( New Windsor could either be Village or Town of..)
NY: : New York NJ :    New Jersey PA: Penn.
N: North  S: South  E: East  W: West
Cor: Corner ….or intersection of two streets.
B.way:  Broadway lst: First St.  Dubois: DuBois R.R.: Railroad (I believe)
Wm.: William
WH: I ASSUMED this to be  WASHINGTON HEIGHTS known as “The Bluffs”

Month abbreviations were standardized to keep consistent and uniform.

Some of the Irish/English/Scottish/Welsh names could not be written as originally entered because of the database limitations. Such as  (i.e.…O’Conner had to be rewritten as Oconner)
Names such as McDermott could remain but the “ ‘  “ symbol could not be used in the database. It made sorting the information more difficult.

Age where written numerous ways so I took the liberty of standardizing them so that it would make it easier to read and “sort”  (i.e. one year 12 months 28 days was rewritten as 1.12.28).  The YEAR. MONTH. DAY old when died/buried.   The age at death could be convent when calculating individuals birthday.
The AGE original entries varied and hard to decipher:
 Such as (i.e. 6=20  more than likely 6 months 20 days  but I entered as 6 mth 20 dys)
 Such as (i.e. 9=9-24   which I believe was 9 yr 9 mth 24 dys)   YEAR  MONTH DAYS

You may observe that some death and burial dates are older than the cemetery. That is because some of the individuals may have been removed from other cemeteries and brought to cemeteries under St. Patrick's control.  ( It is only a theory but sometimes the cemeteries are formed around some preexisting burials or family plots. Some cemeteries are donated lands from wealth land owners).
Some names were originally entered out of order. The vast majority of the entries were originally entered LastName then MiddleInitial, Firstname, BUT sometimes they were accidentally entered First the Last. This made it difficult sometimes for those individuals that have First or Last names that could easily be reversible such as (i.e.. Kelly A. John,  or John C Brady, #1131 Thompson, Hart.Ella)  Which is the first name which is the last??  Therefore if you are searching for individuals it is sometimes important to try to anticipate what mistakes may have been made originally so that you could search for Kelly, then John as either first or last names.
The cause of death are very interesting. You may observe OLD DISEASE names, causes of death that have modern common cures, Terrible, Horrible causes of death, some job/occupational related deaths, Disease that strike and kill entire families, and you may observe that the disease almost appears to go house to house up and down the streets.
Many babies and infants dyeing as well as mothers during child births.

The Actual Original Books:
The original books measured 11” x 14” closed and 22” x 14 open.  Each of the 100 pages had only 13 entries. The entered information began on the left page and moved across to the right page.  The first page has the names of the board members, the priest at the time, cemetery personnel and other important information.
Each page was written on the front and back on “slightly blue colored lines”.

You may observe that some bodies are kept in “Vault” for unknown reasons for as long as 2 months before they are buried? (i.e. 1904 # 283 kept from Feb 01 to Apr 04). I do not know why?

Years ago the caretakers may have been  uneducated and illiterate like most blue color workers. Because this occupation may not have needed someone that could read/write then they may not have had the education that someone of today has. The early census’s have indicated that such people as policeman, trench diggers, carpenters, plumbers and masons did not know how to read or write but I would guarantee they knew how to do their jobs.
The original books had the work “cemetery” misspelled all over so I took the liberty to correct spelling of original document.  The word “bottom” was often written as bootom or botom such as # 798

While composing the database I had to use abbreviations of some names that repeat such as “Toohey” instead of Toohey Brothers, or “Donahue” instead of Donahue & Sons Parlor

I have observed that some years Donahue Funeral Home got the majority of the business and then other years Toohey got the majority of business.

I have observed that even though people are still being buried in Old St. Patrick's cemetery, some are being removed from Old St. Patrick's and moved to Calvary Cemetery.

I observed that the entering of parents names into the Parent Name Column runs in streaks because some years hardly any are entered other years almost every entry has something written in the column.

In the column “ Parents Names” the family members sometimes listed the mother under her maiden name or gave “in laws” and other living relatives.

I observed that, If a child died before the parent and the child was buried in Old St. Patrick's Cemetery that they may have been removed and brought over to Calvary Cemetery when the parents died. The Old St. Pats was the cemetery of choice for many years but once Calvary opened everyone wanted to be buried their so p one street with the same name or to show which side of the town border they lived.  Cause: Unknown

I have observed that the caretaker would note that the grave was full “Grave Full”  after certain burials. This would indicate that they may have been keeping track of the burials because some had been buried in same plot but separated by many years the caretaker was thorough enough to recognize that the Grave was Full.

I observed that many first names appear over and over and are very popular (i.e.. Mary, Michael, John, and even Nora)

The assumption in this entire database and all records is that the addresses listed are either Newburgh/New Windsor (Village or Town of) unless noted otherwise.  In the earlier records (1860s-1930s) the assumption was that they majority are “Newburgh” addresses with some possible addresses.
 

It appeared to me that people were more than likely to stay in the same house/area for entire life and not move.

Some references give names and locations that are not on many maps such as “W.H., or Snake Hill, etc..” so those people not familiar with the area may have a hard time locating them on maps, especially modern maps.

MISSING INFORMATION:
Calvary Numbers 380 to 400 AND 689-700   are missing or not entered. They do not appear and may have been skipped by accident. It appeared that number 379 was written right next too number 400. Don't know why???
If you observe “ … missing,  or ….missing info   This would mean that the original books have information that I was unable to read or got cut off by the photocopiers
Some of the entries may not have been complete and some information may not have been recorded.
Calvary Numbers 865 to 877 are missing grave numbers because of bad photocopy!! The dates and burials around these numbers may give a general burial site.
In Sept. 1913 of Calvary entries, the numbers goes from 1259 to 1230 for no known reason. Then # 1230 to # 1259 are repeated over again. Almost like they lost track of number sequence or just mistook # 1259 of # 1229 and just continued again without realizing that they are repeating the numbers again.
 
 
 

A good number of burial entries have middle initials given. This is not always the case in many cemeteries.

You may observe that the data given in this database MAY OR MAY NOT collaborate/coincide with what is written on the head stones (If any information is written on the headstones.)  To bury someone cost a lot of money not matte what year it occurred, then to have to pay for a headstone and writing on it, is sometimes too much to ask for those less than fortunate families.  Some people have intentions of entering information on the headstones when they get the money but the information's soon forgotten.  The headstone information is only as good as what the person told them. If you tell them the wrong dates, names they will carve the wrong information.
 

On some occasions information on a burial was written in but the crossed out as to delete it or remove it.  They did not give a reason for it. I believe they entered the information in the wrong book, or body showed up at wrong graveyard, or could not pay for burial,  etc..

On some occasion in the Parent Name Column the original was entered as “ wife of…” , “son of late…”, “Patrick & …”  but never finished never filled in blank.

Old style script hand writing was sometimes hard to read (i.e. a lower case symbol that looked like a “z” was actually a “G” ,  Capital “Q” looked like a number “2”.

It is sometimes hard to tell the difference between the words Mr. & Mrs. Because of small print and style of writing.

One composer of the original documents spelled moved as “mooved” and abbreviated November as “No” as well as Sex for Section.

I have heard and not sure of but,,,  If your relatives bought a plot many years ago and when they died, if they were buried in the ground without a vault, then once a certain amount of time has passed that others may be buried in the same exact spot because the body and casket would have deteriorated and the only remains may be metal objects (i.e. handles, metal nails, etc.). This is what was told to me.  I order for the cemetery to know if a vault is present they hammer a thin metal bar straight down to a predetermined depth. If the metal bar does not strike a object (i.e. vault) and the grave is very old (roughly 80 years old), then the cemetery would allow others to be buried in the same plot because they believe that the grave is full “on paper” but empty of bodies and vaults.

Cremations and spreading of ashes over cemeteries is hard to document. Though I have heard of it with other cemeteries, I have not seen it documented anywhere nor have I heard it occur in either of these two cemeteries.
 
 
 

QUESTIONS I HAVE:
1. What does the address of “ 280 ½ Montgomery” mean? Is it the top or bottom floor of  what appears to be a split house?
Does the disease the killed entire house stay inside the house and infect new owners?
Does the state govern either/or Old St. Patrick’s or Calvary Cemeteries?
Was their any regulations years ago and what were they??
Why did some families put down the funeral homes name/address as last residence (i.e. Toohey, Donahue, Perrott)?
 

CALVARY CEMETERY IS LOCATED IN NEW YORK STATE APPROXIMATELY 60 MILES NORTH OF NEW YORK CITY IN THE COUNTY OF ORANGE IN THE TOWN OF NEW WINDSOR ALONG THE WEST SHORE OF THE HUDSON RIVER WEST OF ROUTE 9W.

THE INFORMATION FOUND WITHIN THIS DATABASE WAS TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM THE ORIGINAL(OR PHOTOCOPY OF) RECORDS MAINTAINED BY SAINT PATRICK'S CHURCH AND CEMETERY. THESE RECORDS HAD TO BE RECORDED IN THIS DATABASE TO ALLOW EASY ACCESS AND TO MAINTAIN THEM FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. ALL EFFORTS ARE MADE TO CORRECTLY TRANSLATE THESE NAMES, DATES, LOCATIONS, AND OTHER INFORMATION TO THIS DATABASE. THE DOCUMENTS ARE MOSTLY HARD COVERED LINED AND BOUND BOOKS OF LEATHER MEASURING APPROXIMATELY 11"X17". THE ENTRIES WERE WRITTEN BY HAND AND INK WITH VARIOUS FORMS AND STYLES OF WRITTING. THE STYLE OF WRITTING AND FORMING LETTERS IS DIFFERENT THAN TODAY AND SOME ARE HARD TO DECIPHER AND TRANSLATE OLD ENGLISH INTO TODAY'S ENGLISH. THE INFORMATION PROVIDED IN THESE RARE DOCUMENTS WAS LIMITED AND AT BEST A THREAD INTO THE PAST. THE CEMETERY HAD NUMEROUS CARETAKERS OVER THE PAST HUNDREDS OF YEARS WITH DIFFERENT STYLES OF WRITTING, HAND WRITTING, VOCABULARIES, AND EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUNDS. SOME OF THE NAMES ARE MISSPELLED DUE TO GRIEVING FAMILIES, CARETAKERS, AND HARD TO READ PHOTOCOPIES OF THESE OLD DOCUMENTS. SOME FAMILIES ALSO CHANGED THEIR NAMES UPON ARRIVAL IN AMERICA. FOR EXAMPLE O'PHELAN BECAME PHELAN THE WHALEN AND WHELAN. OTHER FAMILIES JUST DROPPED A LETTER OR TWO FOR EXAMPLE O'CONNER IS NOW  CONNER.

IF FOR ANY REASON AN ERROR OR OMISSION WAS MADE PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO BRING IT TO OUR ATTENTION. THE CORRECTIONS WILL BE MADE AND NOTED. TO NOTIFY US OF ERRORS OR OMISSIONS PLEASE DO SO IN WRITTING SO THAT WE MAY HAVE SUPPORTIVE DOCUMENTATION ON THE CHANGES AND VERIFYING THE FACTS WILL BE MORE EASY.

THE CEMETERY IS DIVIDED INTO SECTIONS. EACH SECTION IS ASSIGNED A LETTER OF THE ALPHABET BEGINNING WITH THE LETTER "A". EACH SECTION IS FURTHER DIVIDED INTO PLOTS. EACH PLOT IS GIVEN A NUMBER BEGINNING WITH THE NUMBER ONE AND GOES UP UNTIL THE SECTION IS FULL OF ARRANGED PLOTS. EACH PLOT CAN INTERN AS MANY INDIVIDUALS AS PAID FOR. THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE INTERNED IN A PLOT DEPENDS UPON THE SIZE OF PLOT PURCHASED, THE DEPTH OF THE FIRST FEW INDIVIDUALS, AND HOW MUCH $$$ MONEY YOU ARE WILLING TO SPEND. THE DETERMINING FACTOR IN HOW MANY INDIVIDUALS CAN BE INTERNED WITHIN A PLOT IS THE SIZE OF THE PLOT WHEN FIRST PURCHASED. IF A PERSON IS PLANNING ON HAVING SIX PERSON PLOT THEN THEY MUST PURCHASE A SIX PERSON PLOT AND HAVE IT DEEP ENOUGH FOR ALL TO FIT. ITS NOT VERY LIKELY THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO BUY ADJOINING PLOTS IF PURCHASED AT DIFFERENT TIMES. EXAMPLE: THE FAMILIES OF WHALEN AND O'CALLAGHAN PURCHASED SECTION "A" PLOTS NUMBERS 285-286. MRS. DENNIS O'CALLAGHAN WANTED THE FAMILIES TO BE BURIED TOGETHER SO SHE PURCHASED TWO PLOTS ADJOINING AND EACH TO HOLD SIX INDIVIDUALS. EVEN THOUGH THE HEAD STONE ONLY STATES "O'CALLAGHAN OR WHALEN" THEY EACH HAVE SIX INDIVIDUALS BURIED WITHIN THAT 6'X10' PLOT.

WHILE ENTERING THE INFORMATION INTO THE DATA SYSTEM I OBSERVED THAT ON MANY OCCASIONS EITHER THE SECTION LETTER, PLOT NUMBER OR GRAVE NUMBER WHERE ABSENT. TO RECORD THIS LACK OF INFORMATION I HAVE ATTEMPTED TO PLACE "xxx" X'S IN ITS PLACE THE MEASUREMENTS OF THE PLOTS VARIES WITH THE NUMBER OF INDIVIDUALS IT MAY HOLD. A PLOT FOR A SINGLE INDIVIDUAL OR TWO PEOPLE ONE ON TOP OF OTHER MAY MEASURE 3'X10'. A PLOT ABLE TO HOLD SIX PEOPLE MAY MEASURE 6'X10'. A PLOT FOR 9 PEOPLE MAY MEASURE 9'X10'. A PLOT TO HOLD 15 PEOPLE: 5 PEOPLE ACROSS TOP 3 DEEP MAY MEASURE 15' WIDE BY 10' LONG.

CALVARY CEMETERY IS LISTED ON THE 1903 NEW WINDSOR MAP AS BEING 28 ACRES LARGE AND BORDERING WITH MRS. DENNIS MURPHY'S ESTATE

AN ATTEMPT WILL BE MADE TO TRY TO EXPLAIN THE VARIOUS WAYS THAT RECORDS WERE RECORDED TO NOTE THE EXACT LOCATION WITHIN THE PLOT THAT A PERSON IS PLACED. PEOPLE WERE BURIED IN FRONT OF THE HEAD STONE AS WELL AS BEHIND IT. IF YOU TOOK A PLOT AND LOOKED AT IT SIDE WAYS LIKE A CROSS SECTION THEN DIVIDED UP THE SECTION INTO GRAVE NUMBERS YOU WOULD SEE THAT OVER THE YEARS NUMEROUS  METHODS OF RECORDING GRAVE NUMBERS WITHIN A PLOT VARY. IN THE EARLY DAYS THEIR COULD BE FOUR PEOPLE STATED TO BE IN GRAVE NUMBER ONE ,FOUR IN GRAVE NUMBER TWO FOUR IN GRAVE NUMBER THREE AND SO ON. THIS INDICATED THAT THE NUMBERING SYSTEM OF GRAVE NUMBERS WITHIN THE PLOT WAS TOTALLY DIFFERENT THAN IN THE 1940'S OR 1990'S.
 

I have attempted to correctly spell the last names and to use the "  '  " acsent mark when needed.  When you attempt to look for a last name that contains a ' mark such as O' Grady or O'Brien you must also look for OGRADY  and OBRIEN/OBREIN/OBRINE. I attempte to type exactly what was written on the documents but the care takers have not always used the ' mark when needed.

Dear OCGS / Newburgh Bay and Highlands,
 My name is Joseph F Whalen, of New Windsor NY.  I am a 5th Generation Orange / Dutchess County New Yorker.   I am the 4th generation to be a part of the St Patrick's (extended) Church community and born / raised only 2 miles from the Calvary cemetery.  While conducting my family history research I became attached to Calvary and St Patrick's Cemeteries and very interested in the burials.   I was able to obtain a photocopy of a vast majority of its burial records and burial information documents.  I have in my possession a photo copy of burial records for St Patrick's Cemetery located on Broadway Newburgh from 1886 to 1970 and Calvary cemetery burial records from 1898 to 1970.  Plus I have plot purchase records for 1881 to 1910 for St Patrick's Cemetery.  Within the past 5 years I have developed a database system in which I have begun to enter all the data for easy research.
Last month was the first time I heard that you all also have burial records for St Patrick's and Calvary Cemetery. Then I learned that you publish books with some of the burial records. So I had just recently purchased them " Records From Newburgh, New Windsor and Other Nearby Towns" and have reviewed the St Patrick's Cemetery Records.  My true intent was to validate my database and determine how well I was reading and interpreting the old English Style Gothic Script hand writing. I wanted to see how accurate my information was.
 I have reviewed " The Historical Society of Newburgh Bay and the Highlands .. St Patrick's Cemetery Records dated May 1976"  Pgs 163 to 189 and have provided my comments for your review and consideration of possible changes to future publications.  By using your St Patrick Cemetery Records I was able to validate a large portion of my database and correct numerous deficiencies I had in my database. Previous to your publication I was really unable to double check the data I had entered into the database.  The databases are extremely flexible. ( I am able to organize them in nearly any way) (( First name, middle name, last name, Burial date, death date, birth date, Section, Plot, grave number, address, age, any information provided, etc..  PLUS I could do a word search so if anyone is looking for a particular word or street name I could find it in seconds.))

I am very grateful for all this wonderful information and all the dedication and hard work that someone before me has done to compile and organize this burial information. The St Patrick's Church Rectory and Cemetery are always considered primary sources of information and authority of the cemeteries. I have compared your records to my database and to the original documents and have enclosed are few suggestions and recommendations for your consideration to possibly be changed/added to future publications.   Many of the recommendations could be argumentative and petty but I am just keeping them accurate.

With great respect and at your service.

Sincerely,

Joseph F Whalen

NOTES:

The OCCS book had a few names out of alphabetical order ..

G.N.  “Grave Number” they stated may actually be the   “Number of Graves” Purchased not always exact grave number..

All the Death dates you have should be "Burial" dates because they did not record death dates in the original documents.

They elaborated abbreviations such as: Thos. , Jnr. , Jas. but I avoided that and put down exactly what was written.

1892 and 1894 are very hard to read because of faded writing, old English style swirling letters and large gothic looking letters.   The most difficult date to read is 1893. I am hoping that the originals would have a more legible and clear writing because many of the words appear to be in a very light hand or very light ink and nearly invisible.

We have enough information between your records, and my database with (Plot purchase records and burials) that we should be able to find deceased loved ones.

I wish I had a copy of the Newburgh City Directories so I was able to compare names with addresses for those in question.
 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My Suggestions and Recommendations for your consideration to future publications.

Archer, Margaret
Buried: 4/13/47  TO:   4/13/97   The cemetery was not open until 1858~

Bannon, Bridget  TO:  Her first name was spelled “Bridgid”  as compared to “Bridget” which was a name of another person who died 4 days later.  I visually compared them. A distinctive difference in how it was written.

Bannon, Bridget  TO: “Bridgid” written very clear and every letter visible.

Barret, May   TO: “Barrett” written very clear and every letter visible

Bermingham, Malcky  TO: "Malchy"  displaced more "H" characters then "K"
Bur: 07/05/1897  TO: 7/3/1897  The date was "The Third" of 1897

Biers, Bridget   TO: "Beers" written very clear and every letter visible. Plot record said "Beers"

Brady, Chris
150 Lander Street  TO: 15 Lander Street

Brennan, Mary E
D: 2/27/1893   TO:  about 27th 1893 because it occurred after Feb 27 but before March 01 1893.  Death occurred between Feb 27 and Feb 29th more than likely.

Brohen, Catheryn T
D: 5/15/1893   TO: 05/13/1893   Nearly positive it is 13th not 15th

Brophy, Michael
Age: 54   It could be either 34 or 54    looks more like 34 than 54 but could be either.
 

Burke, Mary C  TO: Burke, Mary A    A definite old hand written style "A"  as I compared it to the "C"

Buske, Mary   Hand writing hard to read. Appear more like "Burke"   A death date was not stated but I found it to be Nov 19 1896.

Caistel, Margaret  Hand writing hard to read.  It could be Caistel, or Caisted, or Caisteal. Hard to tell

Campion, James
P.N. 181/2 It appeared as 181/2  but more than likely should be 18 1/2 .  Plot purchase records stated it was 18  1/2 .  More than likely they only bought  a half a plot

Cantlin, Bridget
New York
Age: 78  TO:  Could be either 70 or 78  but hard to tell. Looks more like 70
D: 4/4/1892  TO:  Entry dates were written out of order.  It appears to be April 01 more then April 4

Carr, John J  TO: Appeared as Jnr or Jns J Carr
Carpenter Ave
Age: 58  TO: Very hard to read.  Age is definitely 5x something

Cashman, M.A
D: 6/9/1892 TO: Appeared as June 09  BUT these entries where written out of order and more than likely July 09 because of the sequence the wrote them in

Cassedy, Mary
Bur: 8/15/1897 TO: Died 8/14/1897  because death dates are not given within the original documents.

Clancy, Hanorah
Age: 67  TO:  Age is extremely hard to read because it was written very lightly and is unreadable.
D: 12/24/1894  TO:  The date is either 21 or 24  very hard to read because writing was very lightly done.

Clark, Mrs. Cath      : Stated no date of death or burial but I was able to find Aug 18 or 19 1897.  More likely 18th.

Colernan, Lena TO: " Coleman "   Hard to read     Other Coleman live on street those years using plot records
Age: 16  TO: Age is extremely hard to read because it was written very lightly and is unreadable

Colliton, Michael
P.N. 12  TO:  Plot number as written in Plot purchase book was C-92  not 12. Burial said " 92 " also

Connell, William
Age: 16  TO: " 13 "

Connen, Mrs.
D: 9 / 15/ 1893 TO She was buried in March  on March 15 1893 (3/15/1893)

Conners, Mrs.  Conners, Ann

Conray, Redmon TO: " Conroy " Redmond   I have first hand knowledge of this family history and individuals

Conray, Michael TO: "Conroy " Michael   I have first hand knowledge of this family history and individuals
P.N.: 176  TO: " 170 " not 176

Cooman, Michael TO " Coonan "  It was clearly written "Coonan" in burial books.  We have at least 8 other Coonan family member buried their and I have not yet seen any Cooman's.

Cooney, Matilda
South and Smith
Age: 24 TO: " 54 " years old not 24
D: 12/19/1891 TO: 12 / 29 / 1891  She was buried on Dec 29 1891

Coyle, Patrick
G.N.192 TO: “ 92 ”     He is buried in B-92 as stated in plot purchase records and burial records.

Cronin, Jos..T
G.N. “…Deg.” TO : new grounds 2th grave from north in Legheux plot

Cunnilen, Mary TO: Original Document very hard to read. Could be either  “Cunnilen” or “Cunnieen”

Dary, Mary TO: Original Document hard to read. Could be either “Dary” or “Daly”

Dillon, Mary
D: 1/12/1894 TO:  “ 1895” She was buried Jan 12 1895 per plot and burial records

Donaghue, Marg. TO: I have seen this surname spelled “ Donaghue” “Donoghue” “Donahue””Donohue”  I am hoping that with all the various that the family members should be able to find the individuals they need. The misspelling may be from poor penmanship or how well the document composer knows how to spell the name.

Donahue, Thomas
D: 8/18/1892 TO:  8 / 15 / 1892 He was buried Aug 15 1892 per original burial documents

Dougherty, John TO: The burial records stated  “Jns.” As name  it was not fully spelled out as “John”. It could be another name other than John
Dougherty, Susan
Bur: 8/21/1897 TO: 8/02/1897  Burial records stated she was buried between Aug 02 and Aug 05 with no exact date written next to her name. The entry before her name stated Aug 02 and then her date had the
 ( “ ) marks indicated probably Aug 02 as burial date.  Definitely not Aug 21.

Doulin, Frank
Age: 24 TO: The age is extremely hard to read. Too lightly written and nearly invisible. It appears as if he was 2x (twenty something) like 24, 28 or similar.  Unclear and not exact.
Doulin, Mary
Age: 35 TO: The age is hard to read. Too lightly written and nearly invisible. It appears as if he was 3x (twenty something) like 32,35 or similar.  Unclear and not exact.

Doulin, Rose TO:  It could be read as either “Doulin” or “Donlin”

Douiston, Catherine TO: The name was extremely hard to read because of the way written. Could be nearly anything resembling  “Dou…iston”

Dunn, Kate
D: 1/12/1891 TO: Buried: “ 1 / 12 / 1892”  She was buried on Jan 12 1892

Dunn, John
D: 6/28/1892 TO: Buried: “ 6 / 29 / 1892” He was buried on June 29 1892  He may have died on June 28 but I but the burial records do not give death dates only burial dates.

Dunnigan,.. TO: The surname was found spelled either of two ways “Dunnigan” or “Dunnegan”

Dureen, James TO: The name was actually written as “Jas. Dureen”

Dwitt, Cath
Age: 28 TO: The age is clearly written as “ 23 ”
Sec: A TO: The section is clearly written as “ C ”

Fale, Charles TO: It looks more like “Fole” than “Fale”  because of script connection between the  “O” and “L”

Falk, Mary TO: It is definitely “Fabk”  because someone entered this name twice (once Sept 3 1896 and then Sept 5 1896) and the name appeared to look the same. Its still possible they meant “Falk”

Finnegan I have seen this surname spelled mostly two ways “Finnegan” and “Finnigan” in same family

Fisher, Catharine
West Newburgh M.D.    I believe the M.D. referred to the undertaker because the composer was adding the funeral home names next to the addresses that month. On the same page you see Toohey and Donahue.

Fitzpatrick, John F TO: The composer was having a bad day that day and had a few names overlapping. I don’t believe the middle name was “F”  but that was meant to be the F for “Fitzpatrick”

Florin, Michael
Age: 26 TO:  “ 2.6.7    meaning 2 years 6 months 7 days” not “26 years old”

Fox, Patrick
D: 5/6/1892 TO: 5 / 10 / 1892  He was buried between May 10 and 12th 1892 not (6th)
G.N. 12 TO: He was buried in B-92   The Fox family are all buried in B-92 not (12)

Gaffney, Francis TO: Was actually written as “Gaffeny” but I believe this was wrong.
Age: 88 TO: The age was actually written as “ 3 m .88. ”  The age not accurate.

Gaffney, James Was actually written as “Jas”
Age: 72 Hard to read and may be “ 12 ”  but I agree that 72 is the more likely age.

Gaffney, Marg.. TO: Her name was actually written as “Gaffeny” But I agree this may be a mistake and should have been  “Gaffney”   The document is clear and plainly shows it at “Gaffeny”

Gahran, Julia
Age: 20 The age was written as 20 or 70  BUT it appeared that one number was written over the other and only the original document would have the actual number more visible.

Gallagher, Hugh TO: “Gallager”  It was clearly written as “Gallager” but I agree it should probably have been “Gallagher”   The document was clear and every letter visible.

Glean, John TO: “Glenn or Glynn”  The burial records clear show it as “Glenn” but the plot purchase records show it as “Glynn”.  Other Glynn members are buried in same section/plot

Grady, Mary
321 Broadway The actual document shows one number was written over another. The address could be either
 221 Broadway or 321 Broadway. Only the original document would show the actual address.
 
 

Gray, Mary
Carter Street M.D. I believe the M.D. referred to the undertaker because the composer was adding the funeral home names next to the addresses that month. On the same page you see Toohey and Donahue
D: 2/28/1896 TO:  2 / 28 /1895

Gregory, Anna
GN: 30 TO: She was buried in B-20 per the burial records and plot purchase records.

Grey, Theresa TO: “Gray” The burial records clearly show her name as “Gray”
2nd.  Jas.Grey plot TO: “Jas. Gray plot”  The burial records clearly show it as “Gray Plot”
 

Guerny, Mary
Age: 72 The age is unclear and hardly visible. It appears as  x2  probably 72 years old but not sure.

Handerholt, Mary TO: “ Handerbolt”  It has more “b” characteristics than a “h”

Hannon, Mary TO: “ Hannan”  It appears more like “Hannan” than Hannon.  It has “a” characters not “o”

Harrm, James TO:  The name was written over and nearly unreadable. Could be a lot of names
  Maybe Carr, Karren, etc..  Hard to read

Horan, Cath
D: 1/1/1892 TO: 6 / 1 / 1892   She Died June 01 1892

Horton, Mrs.James
Sec: B
PN: 2
GN: 45 I fully agree with you that the burial record does state exact this , BUT it is my simple opinion that they reversed the numbers when it should possible be ( B-45 # 2 grave) . I highly doubt that it was grave number 45  but could believe    Section: B  Plot: 45 Grave: 2
 

Howak, Sophia TO: "Mowak"  I compared the M to other M surnames and the w to other names and it definitely was "Mowak" not Howak.

Hunt, Mary TO: "Hand"  but definitely not Hunt.   I compared the letters to other similar letters on the same page and it looks a lot like "Hand".

Hyde, Mrs. Joseph
B: not given TO: " July 24 1896 "

Keelan, James F TO: The original documents stated "Jas. F. Keelan"

Kelly, Bridget
Age: 76 TO: The age is not clearly written and is either 70 or 76,  but looks closer to 70.
D: 2/15/1893

Kelly, Joh H TO: The middle initial is hard to read. It could have been a " U " or an exaggerated "D" but an "H" is unlikely.

Kennedy, Julia
Section: A or C I fully agree that it is very difficult to determine exactly which Section.   It does say
 Either  " A " or  "  C "   I compared it to known other deaths and it appears to be the
Section: " A "   (for example: Oct 09 1894 Michael Conroy Section : A Plot : 170)

Kennedy, William
127 Broadway  TO: " 157 Broadway"  Burial records clearly indicates 157 Broadway
 

Kiems, Ellen  The hand writing is unclear if it said "Kiems" or "Kierns"

Lahey, Mary
Liberty Street
No burial given: TO: Dec 17 1894 as stated by burial records

Leahy, Cath
PN: 8 graves  TO: " 2 graves from south in plot "

Leanlan, Mary  The writing was very gothic and hard to interpret. Possibly it was "Icanlan" or "Scanlan"

Mahoney, Mrs.
No burial date:  TO: June 1892

Leroy, Jennie
Age: 24  TO: Is clearly stated as " 23 y " not "24"

Loffin, Patrick  TO:  The plot purchase stated " Laffan" the burial records stated " Laffin"
 

May, Mrs. Delia
D: 5/5/1892  TO: " May 05 1893 " per burial records

Minnick, Frank
D: 4/29/1895 This name appeared twice within a three day time. I believe that he may have died on Apr 29 and then buried on May 01 but unsure.

Mohan, Mary TO: On May 30 1892 Johanna McCormack died age 45 died and was buried in B-83
Then on May 31 1892 Mary Mohan age 2 years died
 This entry had wrong name

Monahan, James TO: Actual document stated as " Jas." Or " Jos."

Moran, Mrs.
PN: 93, 103 I agree it's confusing and unclear.  The burial record clearly stated  B  93, 103

Mulholland, Daniel
D: 1/12/1894 TO  " 1 / 12 / 1895 " He was buried Jan 12 1895.

Mulligan, John The burial record actually stated " Jns or Jnr "

Muraco, Giuseppe It was written more like " Muroca"   It was clearly written

Murphy, James Was actually written as  " Jas"

Murray, James Was actually written as "Jas"

McAtamany, Maria
No burial date: TO: Mar 30 1895 as stated by burial records

McCabe, Bridget TO:  " McCabe, Brigid " as stated in burial records. Clearly written and legible.

McCarthy, James Was stated as " Jas. McCarty  "  but I agree it possibly should have been James McCarthy.

McColland, Edward TO:  " Mc Poland, Ed" On Dec 24 1891 and Feb 3 1892 two McPoland Family members died both of the same address.  Ed Mc Poland is also listed on plot purchase records as living on First St.   The burial records indicate more of a " P " than a  "C" which is usually scrolling.

McDermott, Mary
209 Montgomery St TO: " 239 Montgomery" the burial record indicated is as 239 somewhat hard to read.
 

McDermott, Michael
No burial date given:  TO:  July 8 1893

McDonald, Alice
D: 4 / 18/ 1894 TO: " November 18 1894 " as indicated by burial records

McDonald, Daniel
B: 9/11/1896 TO: " November 11 1896 " as indicated by burial records

McGiveney, Thomas
Age: 53 TO:  " 55 " The burial records clearly indicated it was 55 y.

McGoldrick, Mack TO " McGoldrick, Mark "  the burial records clearly indicated it was Mark

McGoldy, Mary
103 William St TO:  I believe it is stated as " 113"  because the "zero" does not look anything like the other 70 zero's on the same page.  The middle  number one appears to be a double line. It looks more like a 113 than a 103.

McLean, John TO:  " McSean, John" I compared dozen capital "S" and " L" on the same page as John's and it  is definitely a " S " not an L.  The " S " from McSean looks just like the " S " from  a Smith member who died the same day.  I could be totally wrong on this one.
McLean Kath On the contrary  this McLean  " L " looks just like the " L " from "Liberty St and Lake St" and nothing like the "S" from the word "Street"
 

McLouglin, William TO:  " Loughlin , William "  the burial records are clear and easy to read.  The " Mc" does not appear.

O'Donnell, John   I believe that he is buried in D-12  Two other O'Donnells are also buried in D-12.
Section not given TO:  " D "
PN.  TO:  " 12 "

O'Donnell, Richard
D: 1 / 15 / 1984 TO:  " 1 / 15 / 1895 "  He was buried Jan 15 1895
 

O'Grady, Maggie
Age: 55 TO: " 5 "    the burial records are clear and visible.  It stated " 5 yrs "
 

O'Grady, Willie TO:  " Nellie "    O'Grady, Nellie Maria

O'Rourke, Stephen
Sec: D TO:  " B " Both the plot purchase records and burial records indicate B-27 is the burial site.
GN: 27

Puicell, Eliza TO : " Purcell, Eliza"  The burial records are clear and each letter visible.

Rashan, Mary TO: " Roohan, Mary " The burial record was clear and each letter visible Plus another Roohan also lived on the same street during same time.

Reilly, Bernard TO: " Rielly, Bernard " The burial record was clear and each letter visible.
D: 11 / 24 / 1892 TO:  " 10 / 24/ 1892 " He was buried on October 24 1892
 I have seen the surname spelled (Reiley, Reilley, Rielly, Riley)

Rielly, Mrs. Marg: TO: The burial record stated " Rielly " but the plot purchase states " Reilly"  Could be any of them.

Rogers, Mary TO: The Burial record stated " Mrs. Rogers"  Where did the "Mary" come from?
North Miller  M.D. TO: Remove the M.D. because it refers to the funeral home (MD) not the address
D: 2/18/1895  TO: The burial record did not state an exact date. Where did the exact date come from?
  She was buried between February 06 and February 24 1895

Roosa, Carment This entry was very hard to read and nearly invisible. Name may not be exact.

Ryan, Margaret
No burial date: TO: Apr 15 1897 per burial records

Ryan, Patrick
No Burial Date:  TO: Sept 28 1896 per burial records

Ryan, Patrick D TO:  " Ryan, Patrick S. "   Middle name is " S"  I compared it to other " S" words.

Ryan, Thomas
49 Carpenter TO " 59 " Carpenter    Burial records numbers are clear and visible.

Ryan, Thomas TO: Burial record stated " Thos. Ryan "

Ryan, Thomas W
D: 12/16/1891 TO:  " Dec 01 1891 "  Thomas W Ryan was buried on Dec 1 1891

Saults, Mary
Sec B
PN:  12 or 121 I agree it is unclear and I am unsure of exact burial site.  A "Sault" baby is buried in B-120  to confuse the issue more.

Schad, Barbara TO: " Schaad, Barbara " Both the burial records and plot purchase records clearly state the name as " Schaad "   The burial records stated 84 Chamber but the plot records stated 184 Chamber so that will be an open issue.

Selvin, Michael TO: " Slevin, Michael " The burial records are clear and every letter visible.

Shanine, Eva TO: " Shonine "  The burial records are clear and every letter visible.

Shanhan, William TO " Shanahan, William " The burial records are clear and every letter visible.

Sheridan, John W TO " Sheridan John M"  It is definitely a " M " I compared it to other words such as (Mary, Michael , Washington, Williams, West,  and Mathews"

Schultz, Marg TO: " Shultz "  The burial records are clear and each letter visible.  I know of three burials  with this surname thought it is very close to Schultz name.

Spiatt, John TO: " Spratt, John " Both the burial records and plot purchase records state Spratt. The burial records are clear and every letter visible.

Staffney, John H TO " Gaffney, John H" Both the burial records and plot purchase records state " Gaffney" as owner and burials in B-138.   The burial records are clear and every letter visible.

Tishe, Michael TO " Tighe, Michael " The burial records indicate " Tighe" but the plot purchase records indicated  "Tigh"  The burial records are clear and every letter visible stating " Tighe"
 

Topley, Nich
Sec C
PN 3
GN: 126 TO: C-126 grave #3   Both the burial records and plot records indicate its
  Section : C Plot# 126  Grave #3

Walsh, Gath TO: " Cath Walsh" The burial records appear to indicate " Cath" more than " Gath"  Plus a
  A Mrs. Catherine Walsh purchased the Plot C-41  5 graves.

Whalen, P
Age: 58 The age was very hard to read and nearly invisible.  I have first hand knowledge of this family
 The P as it was stated in the burial information, stands for Patrick Whalen. I unfortunately do not have an exact age for him.   His age is unclear  because of the way it was written. It is definitely something like 5x (fifty) 50 or 58 ?

Wilson, Honora
Age: 90 TO  I believe her age was " 80 " but the writing is so light and nearly invisible it could be anything.

Witzenbocker, Sahar  TO: " Sarah "   the burial records are clear and every letter visible. Her name appeared as "Sarah Witzenbocker "

  Message:
 The James Gaffney who emigrated to the USA,  ca. 1846, poss. as a passenger on the SUNBEAM  out of Liverpool, at age 28, who settled in
  New Windsor, NY, before 1849, and who was a  "butler", MAY have been my ggrandmother's  father. Believe that this man, with his wife,
 operated a boarding house in New Windsor for  many years, but drowned, at age 72, in the  Hudson River in late 1891. His wife (name
   unknown at present) may have then remarried  a WILLIAM MARA. James also had a son named  James, who died at 72, in 1933, and is buried in St Patrick's Cemetery    in St Patrick's Cem. in Newburgh, NY. He and  my ggrandmother also had two married sisters,  married names MCPHILLAMEY and MCDONALD. Any bells ring for anyone?
