Henry Stoner’s Home

This marker is unique as it is in the Town of Mayfield, although you have to travel through the Village of Broadalbin to reach it. it had been destroyed years ago and for years only the post was left. The Mayfield Historical Society recently took the initiative to replace this sign. The actual site of John Stoner’s cabin was just behind this marker (east). It is believed that the log cabin had no foundation. John Stoner was killed during the war for independence at a temporary farm site he was occupying during that war, out by F.M.C.C.. His son Nicholas became famous in later years after the war and many local stories have been written about him. The present marker was copied word for word, from the original. You can find some interesting stories on the Stoner Family in Donald William’s books, “The Saga of Nichols Stoner” and “Nicholas Stoner and the Sammons Boys”

Location: Take West Main Street in the Village of Broadalbin and turn north onto North Second Street. The marker is on the east side of the road, shortly after you cross the town line. The original marker was suggested by Robert W. Chambers and installed in 1932.
