Funeral services have been set for James Cropsey, who died on Friday. The family farm that bore his name had been operated by him and his family in New City since the late 19th century through the 1990s, and was in existence before the Revolutionary War. The 25-acre farm, located on South Little Tor Road in New City, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2017. In a post on Facebook, Sue Ferreri, Executive Director of the Rockland Farm Alliance, which runs a community farm at the location now, said Jim paved a path of true community by providing jobs, guidance and support for area young people. He was active in the local Rotary Club, the Historical Society of Rockland County, and other organizations. He served in the Korean war and studied Agriculture at Cornell. A visitation will be held Saturday, July 29th from 10:00 AM to noon at the Michael J. Higgins Funeral home in New City. A funeral service will follow, and he will be buried at 1:30 Saturday afternoon at Germonds Cemetery in New City. He was 94 years old.
