It was to serve rectory for The Reverend John Beardsley, who ministered at Christ Church, Poughkeepsie and Trinity Church in Fishkill, and his family in 1767. Since Beardsley was a Loyalist, he and his entire household were forced to flee to New York City in December 1777 to seek protection of the British during the American Revolutionary War.” (Submitted on November 13, 2010.)
