Maple Grove Cemetery (old), Hoosick Falls, New York

This entry is part 17 of 60 in the series Cemeteries

Maple Grove is divided into “Old” and “New”. This cemetery is located within the city limits of Hoosick Falls. The old and new sections are on opposite sides of the street.

Here is a picture of the old section as it looked in the fall of 2003 when we visited.

Through the gate, down the hill to the right we found the graves of my great-grandparents and two of their daughters who died young. Orlando William “O.W.” Palmer, 1846-1930, and his wife Libbie E. Winn, 1855-1921 have an impressive old marker on their graves. you can just see the GAR marker that was on the gravesite. My mother’s cousin was instrumental in seeing that the GAR markers were placed on graves of Civil War veterans in the cemetery.

Just right of OW and Libbie graves is a similar double marker on the graves of their daughters. Lillian is on the left, and Nellie on the right of the headstone.

There were stained glass windows to memorialize the children in the local Methodist church, which the family attended. I did not take photos inside the church, but I wish I had.

    I am looking for my great great grandfather, Thomas Dyer Davenport who died in 1852, we think in Hoosick Falls NY. His wife and some family members came to Wisconsin after his death. I am trying to find the cemetery where he was buried. I hope that you can be of some help. Thank you, David L Williams

    I live in Michigan, so I cannot do anything to help you with your New York research. I suggest you contact the Hoosick Historical Society at http://hoosickhistory.com/ . I hope they can help you, or direct you to someone who can.

    If you’re still looking, I found a THOMAS DAVENPORT, who died in 1852, buried at Waites Corners Cemetery, White Creek, Washington County, NY. White Creek should be about 13 miles from Hoosick Falls. Here’s the link: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=davenport&GSfn=thomas&GSbyrel=all&GSdyrel=all&GSst=36&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=41248070&df=all&

    I also found another online listing for DAVENPORT, ELIZABETH HULL, d. 4-8-1859, age: 73yrs 2dys, [LM] and DAVENPORT, THOMAS, b. 12-9-1776, d. 12-18-1852, [LM] at this link: http://www.interment.net/data/us/ny/washington/waites/corner_af.htm

    Good luck.
