Also that same day I transcribed various fragments from a burial site East of the VanDenburgh stone house (with 1783 in metal on the wall) by Indian Ridge and south of Rte 81. The site was in the field scattered and broken. Some of the fragments were used as a foundation for a utility tower. I would think this site contained graves of the 2nd and 3rd generations of Vandenburghs. Richard Janse VD, the original settler, may have been buried in this area.
