Burial Site - Baylor Massacre River
Vale Road
River Vale, NJ
(Thanks Philip for submitting this information....)
Burial site for six Revolutionary War soldiers killed in the Baylor Massacre: "Six soldiers of those killed in the Baylor Massacre were buried here in 3 abandoned tan vats. The vats were part of a small tan yard which existed here before the revolution. The gravesite was discovered in 1967 and the soldiers were re-interred here in 1972." The plaque reads: "In memory of American soldiers killed during the Revolutionary War in the 'Baylor Massacre' on September 28, 1778. Lt. Col. George Baylor's 3red Regiment of Continental Dragoons took quarters for the night on several nearby farms. Tories betrayed their presence to a British force who surrounded the Dragoons during the night. A number of Americans were killed or wounded after they surrendered." A detail of Baylor's Continental Dragoons was
encamped at Haring's Tannery in River Vale. The bodies of several dead soldiers were thrown into 3 vats.

Saddle River Reformed Church and Cemetery
(also known as Old Stone Church)
Upper Saddle River, NJ
(Thank you Philip for visiting the cemetery and submitting the following information...) The Saddle River Reformed Church & Cemetery, known as the Old Stone Church, has been ministering to the area since 1784. Many Revolutionary and Civil War veterans are buried here. I walked through the cemetery and saw a lot of graves from the 18th & 19th centuries. The inscriptions on several tombstones are illegible. I spoke to the Church secretary and she told me they have incomplete records from 1784-1812. After 1812, the records of births, marriages, and deaths are quite complete. While walking in the cemetery, I noticed several illegible tombstones with
American flags. The secretary told me that the church records exist for all Revolutionary and Civil War veterans even though their tombstones may be illegible. The Hackensack Public Library has Old Stone Church records on microfilm. People can contact the Old Stone Church for records at 201-327-5242. It is located on the corner of East Saddle River Road and Old Stone Church Road in Upper Saddle River. Church offices are one block north on East Saddle River Road.
