This cemetery is located on the grounds of the
historic Bronk Museum, Rte 9W, Town of Coxsackie. The Museum is situated across
the road from the Coxsackie Correctional Facility. The cemetery is surrounded by
a white wooden fence and is very well maintained. About 20 yards from the family
cemetery is an area designated as the slave cemetery. Thirteen fieldstones mark
the graves of slaves of the family. In addition, two headstones are located here
and are detailed below.
