Description

Monfort Cemetery is in Port Washington, New York. The 1-acre property was separated from Rapelje's farm and sold in July 1786 to members of the Onderdonk, Schenck, Hegeman, and Dodge families. The earliest-dated markers date to 1731 and 1738. Other bodies reburied there before the Rapeljes' sale of the property and its official designation as a cemetery in 1796, making this cemetery well over 200 years old. .The Monfort Cemetery contains 118 graves of some of the earliest Dutch settlers of Cow Neck (as today's Port Washington was then known) and their descendants, buried from 1737 to 1892. The cemetery added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988 and is a small, nearly square plot surrounded by tall oak trees. It is fenced off and locked, not open to the public, and the graves are arranged in 13 rows by family.
