Thank you for posting information I found for some of my ancestors. Can you please connect and add information for a few buried in the Route 23 burial ground in Hudson, Columbia Co, NY:

Mary Harder and Jacob Harder were husband and wife.

Elizabeth Harder Delamater was their daughter.
She was married to Charles Delamater also buried in same location.

Thank you!

I noticed that Hannah's gravestone (Find A Grave Memorial# 50277784) is very dirty and leaning. If you would like a free estimate for a cleaning and straightening let me know. I am fully certified and trained in dealing with historic gravestones.

Jacob Harder
Hi Keara,
Thanks again for posting these folks. Bio of Jacob below.
Jim Harder

Jacob Harder is the first person of the Harder surname known to be born in America. He became a successful farmer and acquired substantial land holdings near Claverack, Columbia County, NY. He is accepted by the DAR as a Revolutionary Veteran, although it is doubtful he actually served due to his age. It is very likely that five of his sons did serve.

Jacob HARDER (or HERDER), youngest child of Palatine immigrant Johann Michael HÄRDER (1672-1716) & Maria Lucia TULLIUS of Klosterkumbd, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany. Born on 7 Mar 1714 at Queensbury (Germantown), Columbia Co., NY. Died on 24 Feb 1792 prob. at Hudson, Columbia Co., NY; he was 77. Buried at Burial Ground, Route 23, Town of Greenport, Columbia Co., NY.
A tombstone of Jacob Harder is next to State Road 23 near Hudson, NY, with the tombstone of his wife Mary Harder. This is the only record we have of their birth and death dates. The will of Jacob Herder, yeoman of Hudson, was dated December 1790 and probated 8 Aug 1799. The will names his second wife Catalina, deceased son John and surviving sons Michael, Peter, Jacob and Nicholas, and daughters Maritje, Jannetje, and Elizabeth. Jacob left farms at Squampamock (Ghent) and Hudson to each of his sons.
Jacob first married Maria VAN HOESEN, daughter of Jan Jurrian VAN HOESEN (~1678-Dec 1731) & Jannetje VAN SCHAAIK, on 3 Aug 1738 at Zion Evang. Luth. Ch., Loonenburg (Athens), Greene Co., NY. Born on 5 Mar 1717. Baptized at Klinckenberg; rec Luth. Ch., New York, NY, on 31 Mar 1717. Died on 21 Apr 1775 at Columbia Co., NY; she was 58. Buried at Burial Ground, Route 23, Town of Greenport, Columbia Co., NY. They had 10 children.
Jacob second married Catalina DELAMATER, daughter of Claude DELAMATER (28 Jan 1692-) & Christina LEGGET (1690-), on 27 Jun 1777 at RDC Claverack, Columbia Co., NY. Born in 1724. Baptized at RDC Linlithgo, Columbia Co., NY, on 18 Oct 1724. Died in 1801 at Claverack, Columbia Co., NY; she was 77.

Havens family
Hi Keara

I went to Mt. View, but there is still no sign of a fresh burial in the family lot. I did make note of the other graves there; there are 2 rows behind the large stone as follows: Row 1-Thomas J. Sheehan #68640592, empty, empty, Elayne H. Simpson #68640745, H. Lynn Simpson #68640746. Row 2-Genevieve Tracy Havens, Eliza M. Havens, J. Meryle Havens, Sr., Helen L. Havens, James H. Havens.

If you would like any of the Sheehan/Simpson memorials, just let me know. Maybe you as a relative can check with the funeral home in Corning to find out what has happened to James, Jr. that he's not here yet.

Thanks so much for taking the photo of Dr Darius Stoddard's headstone. I can't believe what great shape it is in - Thank you, thank you!

Havens in Mt. View
Hi Keara

I've made the transfers, and was very happy to do so. My aim has always been to put the memorials I add in the hands of family. I always wait about a month after death to see if family adds a memorial, so I was pleased to see you had already created one for James, Jr. I went to the cemetery that day to find his grave, had no trouble finding the family plot, but could see no sign of a recent burial. I asked the head of the cemetery crew, who assured me hadn't been buried in another lot. Maybe he's being cremated?

I'll go back again today to see if he's arrived yet, I'm just waiting until it gets warmer than 38. I live only 5 blocks away so it's too short a distance to drive, but too cold to want to walk. :>( I'll let you know what I find.
