In my recent genealogy research I have come across individuals who listed Doodletown as either where they lived or where they were born. I knew it was a part of the Town of Haverstraw in Rockland County New York, but I didn’t know what happened to it. I never heard of it as I was growing up. This article gives some background as to where it was and what happened to it. https://www.atlasobscura.com/articles/new-york-ghost-town-growing-graveyards
There are other records that list people as living or being born in Bear Mountain. These could have been in Doodletown, or other hamlets that were taken over by the Bear Mountain State Park or Harriman State Park.
I will need to do more research on these locations.
Anybody have any information to share?
