WEST NYACK, N.Y. -- The long-neglected graves of Revolutionary War soldiers at a small church cemetery in Clarkstown have been spruced up in time for Memorial Day, according to a report by lohud.com.
Bert Dahm, a volunteer with Heritage of West Nyack, told lohud.com that folks from many of Rockland’s earliest families are buried in the graveyard off Germonds Road.
The group recently identified and cleaned up the graves of 23 Continental Army soldiers who served in the Revolutionary War and 18 who died in the War of 1812, lohud.com reported.
American Legion members from Post 1682 in New City will be placing American flags on those graves for Memorial Day, the lohud.com article said.
