According to the information in the book “The VanBunschoten or VanBenschoten Family in America” by William Henry VanBenschoten, the old Peter Fraleigh Burying Ground was located across the road from the Fraleigh farm which was 3 miles south of the Village of Rheinbeck on the Old Post Road at the intersection of what is now 308 and Rt. 9. At the time the book was written in 1907, the “stones were rough and unlettered.” The Berghs, Froelichs, VanBenschotens and Schryvers were buried in this ground and generally without tombstones.(page 679). Some, if not all, of the burials were later moved to the Reformed Church Cemetery in Rheinbeck when the road was widened.
