The Book of Burials – The Vault

Below is a chronological list of burials in the vault of the First Dutch Reformed Church which stood on Broadway at the foot of State Street hill until 1806.

Many of these burials were removed to the Second Dutch Reformed Church where they were placed in a vault beneath the bell tower.  Later, some were moved to the Madison Avenue Reformed Church and, eventually, to the Church Grounds (see Albany’s Dutch Stones and Not The Right Stones). 

See The Book of Burials master post for further details on the list.

The list covers burials from 1722 and 1757 and was printed in Munsell’s Annals.  Burials in the vault end in 1746; after that date, interments are listed as “in the church.”  There may have been no room left in the vault and those wishing to be interred inside the church were laid to rest beneath the church’s floor.
