Red Hook Cemetery for Persons of Color


The above map  (drawn 2012 based on 1849 map) shows a 1/3rd acre plot with a road to the south and a mill pond to the north. The adjacent landowners are Schultz and Elisha Fingar. I believe due to a change in the road, and an expansion of the mill pond to the south, the former cemetery is under water on Mill Road. The only thing that does not make sense is the mention in the west-most point, "stone set near Schultz barn" as I do not see how a barn would fit between the road and mill pond at that point, unless the barn is just across to the south.
