This is a little cemetery from 1670 near the Jan Mabie House, the oldest house still standing in the Mohawk Valley in the US. The graves must be of the residents of the house during the centuries, I only could decode 1790 on a grave, the others are hardly visible.
The 300 year old Dutch farm was originally settled by Daniel Janse van Antwerpen, who established it as a fur trading post to meet Native American traders before they reached Schenectady. He received a deed for the property in 1671 from the English governor. In 1706, Van Antwerpen sold the farm to Jan Pieterse Mabie and it was handed down through the Mabie family for 287 years.
