Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 11, 1738
Hartford County
Connecticut, USA
Death: Feb. 18, 1787
Columbia County
New York, USA

Benjamin Newberry was the son of one of the original settlers of New England and was the owner of a silver mine. He was married to Sarah Drake and they had five children Sarah Newberry Ingersoll, Josiah Wolcott Newberry and Benjamin Newberry. Two children preceeded him in death: Abigail Newberry born 1771, died 1773 and Josiah Newberry born 1774, died 1776. Note: Cemetery Near the Canaan Line is located on a hillside in the woods bordered by Spencer, Middle and Fog Roads on the northeastern border of the Town of Austerlitz. It is an abandoned cemetery that is almost impossible to restore since the highway has been changed making this cemetery inaccessible for maintenance. It was once an open field. It is said that many of the bodies were removed to a West Stockbridge cemetery. The stones are marble and some are broken, some are half buried in the ground. L. Hasbrouck von Sahler copied the names and dates many years ago and sent them to Louise Hardenbrook. The earliest date is 1781, the latest 1824.
