Here are photos of the cemetery  in Watsonville where Timothy Murphy was originally buried. He was later removed to the Middleburgh Cemetery. "Polly, consort of William Banks" was Timothy Murphy's daughter.

The cliffs in the distance are what is known as Vrooman's Nose.  That property is owned by a non-profit organization and there are maintained trails to the top.  It is open to the public and affords an impressive view of the Schoharie Valley.  The cemetery is located in the fields of the Barber family who run a dairy farm and also raise vegetables for sale to the public in the hamlet of Watsonville.
