Cemetery notes and/or description:
In 1822, some 43 years after the Battle of Minisink, the bones of the slain patriots were recovered from the battle field. The remains were interred in two walnut coffins and buried in a mass grave in the church yard of the First Presbyterian Church of Goshen. A memorial was unveiled at the site and an elaborate ceremony, attended by over 15,000 people, was held to honor the fallen.

The original memorial was replaced in 1862 with the current, more formal memorial designed and executed by John Vanderoot. This memorial was a gift from Dr Merritt H Cash whose father (Reuben Cash) survived the Wyoming Massacre (1778).
