Burrying Ground of Major Harmen and Francais Van Buren

BURYING GROUND OF MAJOR HARMON AND  FRANCIS VAN BUREN SEVENTH  ALBANY COUNTY REGIMENT; REVOLUTIONARY WAR.  SETTLERS ON THIS LAND.

THE BURIAL SITE OF TWO REVOLUTIONARY WAR VETERANS:

This marker directs you up a narrow dirt road that leads to some summer camps. In the yard of one of these camps is a boulder with an inscription to two Revolutionary War Soldiers buried here; Major Harmon and Francais Van Buren, who had settled here after the Revolutionary war and who had served in the Albany County Militia. In seeking this site I would ask you to use caution and courtesy as this grave site is on private land.

Location: This marker is located on the old Vanderburgh Point Road east off Route 30. Follow Vanderburgh Point Road and just past the intersection of Perique Road (known locally as Perique Corners), you will discover this marker on the north side of the road just before you reach Vanderburgh Point, the Beach and the Sacandaga Reservoir.
