The Battle of Bennington was a battle of the American Revolutionary War that took place on August 16, 1777, in Walloomsac, New York, about 10 miles (16 km) from its namesake Bennington, Vermont. A rebel force of 2,000 men, primarily composed of New Hampshire and Massachusetts militiamen, led by General John Stark, and reinforced by men led by Colonel Seth Warner and members of the Green Mountain Boys, decisively defeated a detachment of General John Burgoyne's army led by Lieutenant Colonel Friedrich Baum, and supported by additional men under Lieutenant Colonel Heinrich von Breymann

This is probably the true grave of Gideon Braley (in Fulton County). The other "faux-headstone" placed in 1940 at the "Fort Avery Memorial" by the local-D.A.R., very likely is in error (both in the place of his death, and in the year of his death). The local-D.A.R. of Erie County during that era, made a great many errors in their military attributions. More info at these links:
