Historical and Genealogical Researchers!
- Do you enjoy learning more about the Revolutionary War than what you read in normal history books including those who fought for our freedom?
- Are you a subscriber to any online databases? If not, we can identify links, downloadable books and will have digitized records that need to be read and transcribed for a information about the Fishkill Supply Depot and the men who died and are buried there.
- Do you live near a state capital or Washington, D.C.; New York City; Philadelphia or Washington Crossing, PA; Boston; New Haven or Hartford, CT or Pittsfield, MA? Can you help us by doing on site research? (More cities will be identified at a later time)
- If you live near Dutchess County, would you like to join us as we do research day trips to local repositories, Albany or Pittsfield?
As a researcher and a vital part of our team, we ask that you read documents, take notes, source the material, copy or photograph documents if possible, and email it to us for future use in a digitized collection of material about the Fishkill Supply Depot.
At this time we are trying to identify as many men as possible who died and are buried in the cemetery. In the process of this research, we are learning so much about life at the Depot and during the Revolutionary War - you can too! It is fascinating research.
We look at Muster Rolls, Orderly Books, Quartermaster Records, Histories, Military Journals and Diaries, Service & Pension records and so much more. There could be important information in county histories or memoirs in small libraries or repositories anywhere in the country that might help us.
We need help researching the family trees of those who final resting place is the sacred ground at Fishkill Supply Depot and hopefully locating living descendants. Those descendants that we have found now have a profound connection to the FSD.
With your help we can honor those men who gave their lives for our country and have rested in Fishkill for so many years without the individual recognition they deserve. And with your help we can collect enough information so the country will know the importance of the Fishkill Supply Depot and help us save this historic landmark for future generations to come.
