I had some extra time, so I stopped by to take a picture of Samual Rusk grave site in the Haines Cemetery.

Here are some pictures:

I'll jump in and say this is the Haines family graveyard on the small knoll by the pond on the Mountaintop Historical Society campus in Haines Falls. It's on the right as you walk down the railroad bed, just before you come to the wall at the car dealership. Please note, it is not part of the MTHS campus, it is private property.

Samuel Rusk ran a hotel called the Claremont just in front of here.

Tim

Do know how his child died? She appeared to have been almost 4 years old. Did he have any other children?

This appeared to be the Haines Family grave yard. How is Rusk associated with the Haines family?

Samuel E. Rusk was the son of John W. Rusk and Lucy J. Haines Rusk. Lucy was the daughter of Aaron Haines, who owned the Haines Falls House. Samuel went into his father-in-law's business, building the Loxhurst in 1894 (where the MTHS visitor center is now). After selling the Loxhurst to C.A. Martin, he built the Claremont next door in 1905. Haven't been able to find anything on Winifred, and I find no other children listed in the census.
