Where

This historic cemetery in the Dutchess County Town of Stormville, New York is the resting place of around 100 slaves of the Storm family as well as other African-Americans. The graves date between 1760 and 1848. Many were originally marked with wooden crosses that have since rotted away, so there are many unmarked graves. Believed to be buried here is Epye Schouten, a slave to Patriot, Garret Storm. Schouten is said to have saved Storm when he was hanged in his attic by the British. Schouten interceded by cutting him down just in time to save his life.
