REMARKS: Zachariah Vlegelar of Wertheim, Franconia, came to the valley of the Hudson in 1709. He died in 1720 in Dutchess county, leaving three sons who are the ancestors of all the Fleglers in the United States. His son Philip Solomon Flegler built in 1736 a house, the shell of which is still standing east of the burial ground in the hollow under the hill. The house and farm passed to Philip Flagler (1731-1804), then to Solomon (1773-1850), after whose death the farm was sold. Philip S. Flegler (1701-1766) and his wife were first buried in this ground. In recent years their bodies were removed to the modern cemetery at Poughquag.
