— The William G. Pomeroy Foundation’s Roadside Marker Program has recognized the Gumaer Cemetery as a significant part of New York State history by awarding a grant to issue a historical marker. This designation honors the Gumaer Cemetery as an important and educational part of local New York history.

The cemetery is the burial location of one of the earliest settlements in western Orange County, N.Y. The Peenpack Patent (Magheckemeck) was founded in 1697, and contains the remains of some members of the original Consistory of the Reformed Dutch Church of Magheckemeck, now known as the Deerpark Reformed Church.

A brief dedication ceremony to commemorate the event will be held on Saturday, August 9th, 1:00 pm, at the Gumaer Cemetery located in Godeffroy, Town of Deerpark, N.Y.

The Gumaer Cemetery has been undergoing maintenance since 2010 through a trust made by the bequest of the late Kenneth I. Gumaer Sr., DVM via a grant from the Community Foundation of Orange & Sullivan to the Minisink Valley Historical Society.

For further information regarding the dedication ceremony contact Norma Schadt, Town of Deerpark Historian at 845-754-8070 or Nancy Conod, Executive Director of the Minisink Valley Historical Society at 845-856-2375.
