Stoutenburgh Crest by Thomas Rawlings

Stoutenburgh Crest by Thomas Rawlings

 

 

WE GREATLY APPRECIATE CYNTHIA RAWLINGS MATTHEWS’ DONATION.

 

 

 

 

 

This striking rendition of the armorial design was created by Thomas Rawlings during the 1960’s as encouraged by his wife Thelma Stoutenburg Rawlings. To this day Cynthia still retains in her possession the crest which inspired this artwork,  painted on silk, which carries the name “Stoutenborough” previously owned by her grandfather Nathan Stoutenburg.

In keeping with Mr. Rawlings’ intention to benefit the Stoutenburg-Teller Family Association with his creation, our enterprising president Pat Fox has made it possible for our members to acquire this distinctive armorial as applied to a number of useful items.  In addition to making great gifts for your family members we hope to promote an awareness and interest to learn more about our family’s history.

In New York, the Hyde Park Post Office features seventeen painted panels of a historical mural project, one of which is of Jacobus Stoutenburgh clearing the land. These works are discussed in the book FDR and the Post Office by Tony Musso. Mr. Musso writes a weekly column for The Poughkeepsie Journal, and on November 19, 2014 our cemetery was featured in Dateline. Mr. Musso photographed the cemetery gates and wrote a very fine article, for which Gail Hotalling, of the Gilbert Stoutenburgh Memorial Trust, was interviewed.

The Poughkeepsie Journal has printed several articles over the years regarding the Stoutenburgh family of Hyde Park and their efforts throughout the years to maintain the Stoutenburgh-Teller Family Association. During his lifetime, President James Spratt was tireless in keeping the public informed of their projects.

You may hear Mr. Musso’s presentation about FDR and the Post Office at St. James Episcopal Church in Hyde Park in 2014.
