Cemetery notes and/or description:
Early in King Philip's War Captain Richard Beers and 36 mounted soldiers were ambushed by 150 Indians near Northfield, MA. Capt Beers and nineteen of his men were killed, and sixteen of the soldiers managed to escape. The Indians were led by Monaco, a Nashaway sachem. A marker on Beers' mountain identifies the area where Capt. Beers and his men were buried. Only Capt. Beers is identified by name on the markers.
