Age at death: his 69th year
m. Rachel Van Wart 14 Apr. 1778

The following inscription on
the Isaac and Rachel Van Wart's
monument was raised 11 Jun 1829:

EAST FACE
"Vincit Amor Patriage"
Nearly half a century before this
monument was built the Conscript
Fathers of America had in the Senate
Chamber voted that ISAAC VAN WART
was a faithful Patriot, one in whom
the Love of country was INVINCIBLE
and this tomb bears testimony that
the record is true.

WEST FACE
The Citizens Of the County of Westchester
erected this tomb In testimony of the
high sense they entertain for the
Virtuous and Patriotic conduct of their
Fellow Citizen: And as a Memorial Sacred
to Public Gratitude.

Elmsford Reformed Church, "The most
prominent grave is that of Isaac
Van Wart, who with John Paulding of
Eastview and David Williams of
Tarrytown, captured Major Andre,
the British spy who carried in his
books the detailed plans of West
Point.

For many years Van Wart was
a member of the church. After the
war, he was awarded a farm in Putnam
County. Some time after the church
was organized and built, he returned
to this area (because his wife was
homesick)."
