Thanks for the clarification; I've corrected the note.

RE: Isaac Martling
Greetings, Dee!

Thanks for your message. I've revised Isaac's bio to include the additional circumstances of his death, & have credited you in the "Notes" section as the source of this info. He's described as the older brother of Abraham "Brom" Martling on p.310 of "Permanent New Yorkers" by Judi Culbertson & Tom Randall (Copyright 1987, Chelsea Green Publishing Co.), which also states that Abraham was the probable inspiration for Irving's Brom Bones. The authors describe Abraham Martling as having "a natural aggressiveness" that led him to sail down the Hudson with several other American patriots and set fire to a Loyalist's house.

Best regards,

RE: Abraham Martling
No, the headstone doesn't have his parents names on it. That notation, along with others, was on an old list I found years & years ago. I wasn't able to find that exact list on the Internet but I did find a version of it on rootsweb. Below is the link.
I'm not sure where they got that information but I know, from walking the cemetery, that the information in some of the other notations (for other people) appeared on foot stones or neighboring stones. I would go there and check for you but I don't live near there anymore, sorry.
Maybe you'll be able to find out more on rootsweb.

Happy hunting! :)

RE: Abraham Martling
The only information I have came from Abraham Martling's headstone. See photo. I am not a relative nor am I doing any research on the Martlings. I went to that church as a child and grew up in Elmsford where the cemetery is located.
Sorry I couldn't be of any help.
