STORM
(American Revolution Marker 1775-1783)
Garrett Storm
Died April 14, 1801
Age 78 years, 10 months, 27 days

Stormville - It might be a small cemetery, but its signifigance just got a great deal bigger.

On a rainy Sunday afternoon, in the Town of Stormville, on Philips Road, at The Slave Cemetery of the Storm Family close to 75 people gathered. Here, under a tent, guests paid tribute in a Rededication Ceremony to approximately 90 lives which left indelible marks on those they touched. The Storm Family locale contains Gravesites of SLAVES who were buried as far back as 1760; the most recent date reads 1848. The historic cemetery began with General Storm, who buried his Slaves at the spot. Several branches of the Storm family's Slaves exist in the cemetery.

In fact, one of those Storm servants, thought to be buried at the cemetery, bears a heroic stature. Her name was Epye Schouten, and she resided with the General Garrett Storm family about a quarter mile from the Cemetery. Gen. Storm, a Patriot during the Revolutionary War, was tied up by a group of Tory Soldiers, who further ramshackled his house. As records indicate, one of his servants, Epye Schouten, saved Gen. Garrett's Storm's life, untying the rope that would have hung him.

History further indicates that Garrett Storm mentions Schouten in his will that he drafted 20 years later.
