Van Duesen Cemetery, Great Barrington Mass.

The Van Dusen Burial Ground, sometimes called the Pelton Brook Cemetery, lies a little remote from the Housatonic highway and west of the home of Thomas S. Ramsdell. It originally was a private burial place of the Van Deusen family and was located on the land of Isaac Van Deusen. I. The first grave was that of Isaac's youngest daughter, Gesie, who died in 1738. On the south side of this ground and without the fence which encloses it, the negro slaves of the early Dutch set- tlers of that neighborhood are reputed to have been buried, but time and culivation have obliterated the unmarked graves, This burial place remained private property until 1819, when Joseph Pelton, into whose possession it had fallen, conveyed it to the town. In 1935, the stones in this cemetery were re-set and the ground ploughed and re-seeded. There are still burials in this cemetery.
