"Columbia County at the End of the Century" publised by the Hudson Gazette vol. 1 page 440 contains the following:
"At the rear of the house of grounds that extend in fertile meadow lands to the bank of the creek is a neglected burial plot. On a fenced in a monument of modest proportions, covered with moss and lichen is a faded inscription reciting that Peter Van Ness, who is buried there at the side of his wife, had served as an officer in French War, was in command of a regiment at the capture of Burgoyne in 1777, was a member of the State convention that adopted the Federal Constitution, was elected State senator, and was the first judge of Columbia County, Peter Van Ness died at Lindenwald in 1804."
