Gumaer Cemetery / Pioneer Knoll Cemetery*

The historic Gumaer Cemetery has now achieved a long term protected status through the Gumaer Cemetery/Pioneer Cemetery Fund, which has been fully funded by the Estate of Kenneth I. Gumaer Sr., DVM, through the Community Foundation of Sullivan and Orange Counties. It had been a long standing desire of Dr. Gumaer that the final resting place of his ancestors in Godeffroy, Deerpark Township, NY, be perpetually preserved and maintained. Dr. Gumaer held a lifelong interest in his personal and shared history with this community and subsequently with this Society, seeing both the urgency and necessity to facilitate the care of this site.

Historically, the Cemetery lies close to the heart of the 1200 acre Peenpack Patent, the precursor to the present-day Town of Deerpark. On October 14,1697, seven patentees received title to their land in the Magheckemeck Valley from the English Crown: Peter Guimard, Jacob Caudebec, Thomas Swartwout, Antoni Swartwout, Bernardus Swartwout, Jan Tys and David Jamison. This settlement evolved to become the American homesteads of the Swartwout, Gumaer, Cuddeback and Van Inwegen families, and has continued to be populated throughout the last three centuries and well into the 21st century.

This Peenpack area is the oldest continuously inhabited inland European settlement in Orange County. However, this settlement, significant at its inception and throughout much of its history, has a legacy which has become forgotten or buried.

In 1838 when the Peenpack community felt the necessity to incorporate a cemetery in their community, a meeting of subscribers was organized by Peter E. Gumaer. The result was that Peter E. Gumaer, along with his wife Esther Cuddeback Gumaer, deeded the acreage of the cemetery in 1839 to the Reformed Dutch Church of Deerpark. The 1842 deed, Orange County, NY Liber 74 page 385, was made to the Ministers, Consistory and Deacons of the Deerpark Reformed Church in consideration of $1.

Available research and current visits indicate that the earliest identifiable grave marker is circa 1720. Although the Peenpack settlement was present as early as 1690, an assumption can be made that earlier burials could be present, and it is also a fairly safe assumption that a majority of the remaining Patentees' burials are present as well. The main cemetery itself is approximately 2.4 acres with two adjacent plots that include a slave cemetery and the Godeffroy Family plot.

In the last 30 years, an increase in family and community awareness has shown more interest in the cemetery, which had up until now remained sadly neglected. The first documented instance of neglect appears in the History of Orange County by Ruttenber and Clark, published in 1881. Ownership of the main cemetery was clarified in the 1990's that the Deerpark Reformed Church indeed owned the site. Issues of access and right of way had in the past also clouded the mission of preserving the cemetery. These were in some part resolved with the intervention of The Nature Conservancy in recent years. Several Gumaer Family members, in addition to Dr. Gumaer, have made strides to further the cause, however, an in-depth look at the Church's records, and all available records, is imperative to clarify the occupancy of the cemetery.

An annual grant is awarded to Minisink Valley Historical Society by the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan through the Gumaer Cemetery/Pioneer Knoll Cemetery Fund. The grant is to be overseen by a committee of three with the express purpose of supporting the expenses of perpetual maintenance of the cemetery. The committee, headed by a member of Minisink Valley Historical Society, will also consist of a member of the Deerpark Reformed Church and a member of the Gumaer Family. Current members of the committee are Nancy Conod, Thomas Smith and William S. Gumaer. Email your queries directly to the Society, or volunteer coordinator Judy Gumaer Testa *the location of the cemetery hasn't proven to be actually located on "Pioneer Knoll."

Historic Cemetery Work Sessions

Once again we will be working at the Gumaer Cemetery/Pioneer Knoll Cemetery site. Through the generosity and foresight of the late Dr Kenneth Gumaer funds are available to ensure the perpetual maintenance of the historic site. These funds are administered by the Minisink Valley Historical Society through a committee consisting of a representative of the Deerpark Reformed Church and of the Gumaer Family to ensure perpetual maintenance of the historic site.

The families of Peenpack and interested community members are cordially invited to facilitate the care of this historic cemetery on Saturdays, April 20th, June 22nd, August 24th & October 19th 2013. 11 AM to 3 PM. Rain or Shine.

This year we are planning brief informative programs during the work sessions. There will also be a family historian and a cemetery preservationist available on site. Family members are welcome and encouraged to visit their American Homestead and pay their respects to their ancestors.

As the site is mildly remote in a rustic setting, please wear appropriate clothing and shoes. Tools are limited onsite, please bring hand tools, cameras, walking sticks, and tick/bug spray.

Pack a light lunch & join us!

For further information please feel free to contact Nancy Conod, Executive Director of the Minisink Valley Historical Society or Judy Gumaer Testa, Coordinator of Volunteers

The Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan currently is custodian for the "Gumaer Cemetery/Pioneer Knoll Cemetery Fund". This fund was created by Kenneth Gumaer, DVM, to provide for an annual grant to the Minisink Historical Society for the sole purpose of overseeing perpetual maintenance of the Gumaer Cemetery/Pioneer Knoll Cemetery. Representatives from the Minisink Valley Historical Society, the Deerpark Reformed Church, and the Gumaer family were the groups stipulated by Dr. Kenneth Gumaer to jointly decide what will be done through use of the funds.

The designated Gumaer Cemetery has two adjoining burial sites which are included in the stabilization and maintenance, as circumstances allow.

Cemetery # 1 - Gumaer Cemetery (also known as Pioneer Knoll and Peenpack* Cemetery) contains approximately 2 acres, and was described as a "white person's cemetery" when incorporated. The property was deeded in 1840 to the Elders, Consistory and Deacons of the Reformed Church of Deerpark. It is situated on Peenpack Hill, overlooking the Neversink, about a 1/4 mile from Pioneer Knoll. Among those buried here, with earliest known field stones dating back to 1713 and 1720, are family members representative of the Peenpack Patentees. They are the area's early settlers Pierre Guimard and Gumaer family members, and members of the Swartwout, Caudebec, and Van Inwegen - as well as Benjamin Provoost.

Cemetery #2 - Slave Cemetery - Its size is implied on 1992 survey map and contains 4 marked graves in close proximity to the Gumaer Cemetery. There is no known or available written documentation.

Cemetery #3 Godeffroy Cemetery - The gravesite of Adolphus & Elizabeth Godeffroy sits immediately adjacent to the Gumaer Cemetery off its southern border. Not technically within the Gumaer Cemetery. {Godeffroy is named for Adolphus E. Godeffroy, who had a mansion and estate in the area.}

For those who are interested in graveyard art and cemetery history, the Society has compiled a bibliography of material. Click here to download SilentCities.pdf - 380kb - (free Acrobat reader required). The bibliography has a number of interesting epitaphs, books on graveyard art and its history, cemetery preservation and contacts.

The Society has only a few inventories of the area's cemeteries and visitors to our web site are encouraged to write the cemeteries directly for burial information. We do sell the records of the Laurel Grove Cemetery (Port Jervis) and the Pine Hill Cemetery (Sparrowbush) and you can go to the gift shop for pricing information. Here are several that we have recorded. Click Here to go to the Upper Mongaup Cemetery listing.

Mahackamack Churchyard

This churchyard, owned by the Deerpark Reformed Church of Port Jervis, New York, is one of the oldest graveyards in present-day Orange County. There are about 300 people buried here, many of whom were the earliest settlers in this area. The earliest burials date from the 1740s and continue until the 1850s. There are a number of Revolutionary War veterans buried here, including Martinus Decker, the man who built Fort Decker, a fortified house still standing at 127 West Main Street, Port Jervis.

This graveyard is currently being restored through the efforts of the Deerpark Reformed Church, the Minisink Valley Historical Society, the City of Port Jervis and many friends. For further information call the church at (914) 856-1946 or the society at (914) 856-2375.

Machackemeck Gravestone Inscriptions, Port Jervis
Orange County, NY
Reprinted from the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, October 1913

A copy of the gravestones in the Machackemeck Burying Ground was made by the Daughters of the Revolution in the month of June, 1908. This copy has been revised and corrected by comparison with the gravestones with the assistance of W. H. Nearpass. It is not a verbatim copy. All verses, epitaphs and words like "Sacred to the memory" are omitted. The punctuation has been made uniform. In the older inscriptions some of the pecularities of spelling and wording have been preserved.

A large number of the gravestones shown on the plan are footstones. They are designated by the letter F. and whenever possible the headstone to which each one belongs is indicated. A considerable number of the stones are without inscription; a few are so far gone as to be entirely illegible; these are omitted.

Upper Mongaup Cemetery

Upper Mongaup Cemetery is located not too far from the Rio Dam, in Upper Mongaup, Lumberland Township, Sullivan County, NY. From Route 97 turn at the Mongaup River onto County Route 31. Go approximately 3 miles and turn right onto the upper entrance of Knight road. The cemetery is 3/10 of a mile on the right hand side. This cemetery is in rather poor condition. Mongaup is near the Orange County line. Obits for many of the families can be found at the Port Jervis Library in Port Jervis, Orange Co., N.Y. They have micro film records of the Union Gazette that date to the 1850's. Another source of info would be the Minisink Valley Historical Society.
