#33.00 Corwin Cemetery, 2008
#33.00 Corwin Cemetery, 2008
.. cemetery was inspected by Marty Van Lith. He reports: "The Corwin Cemetery is very overgrown, probably hasn't been maintained in several years. Eliza Corwin's stone is the only one that is broken. Given the simple and very worn sandstone headstone for Revolutionary War Richard Corwin I think the Feds should spring for one of their monuments."

#33.XX Richard Corwin
His gravestone has not been found. The Town of Brookhaven Historian's cemetery inventory (c. 1939) recorded his gravestone as being in the Corwin Family Cemetery (B033), but it is missing from this cemetery. In 1975, his gravestone was recorded as being in the Nathaniel Hawkins Cemetery (B039) (see B. Kress documentation). When gravestone #33.07 is excavated, it may be discovered to be his, or perhaps another still buried stone nearby. While their are some family connections, there is no obvious reason for the gravestone being moved sometime between 1939 and 1975 -- except perhaps that of pranksters. From the Town of Brookhaven's cemetery inventory (c. 1939): Date of death: 5 Nov 1850 Age at death: 06-01-18 This entry is in agreement with the Kress transcription (c. 1975): Richard Corwin Son of Richard & Dency Corwin Died Nov 13, 1850 Aged 6 yrs 1 mo 18 days.

#081.Document: Osborn Shaw's hand written notes
.. .. In the late 1930s, the then Town of Brookhaven Historian Osborn Shaw conducted an extensive inventory of all the cemeteries and burying grounds in the Town. The principal objective was to develop a record of births and deaths in the Town prior to their mandatory recording by the Town Clerk in 1881. Therefore, any death after 1881 was not included in the versions of this inventory project that were eventually published as computer printouts.
