[Original headstone, lying on ground, in front of dedicated monument.] "In memory of Samuel Mapes who departed this life February 6th 1820, Aged 84 years 11 months and 11 days."

Notes: The historic Mapes Family Cemetery, located on the corner of Rte. 211W and Boorman Road, Howells, Orange Co., New York. Boorman Road is on the left, just before the entry road to Howells. The cemetery is located on land with a residence (white house) which was not a Mapes residence. The historic marker is on the corner, near the driveway. Enter at the driveway (hill) from Rte. 211, it is a public access road, even though it seems to be private property. The cemetery is on your left at the top of the driveway. It is unkempt and deserted; dangerous to walk in summer when the grasses are high. It is about a half acre in size. The Mapes family home, which was "out Boorman Road", has been torn down, according to this resident.

MAPES FAMILY TRACT: Text from the old marker: "The Mapes Tract was 664 acres, Minisink Patent, acquired July 8, 1886 and cleared from wilderness by Samuel Mapes (1735-1820), Revolutionary Militiaman". Source: Photo, Joseph Boyle.
