Private burial ground of the Lansing family and their relatives. This ground was located in a lovely spot, overlooking the Hudson river, at what would now be the south west corner of Second Avenue and 109th Street: This location was only a short distance south of Abraham Lansing's Village home. This house, built in 1749, and now demolished, was one of the two houses that he occupied here in Lansingburgh. In later life he turned over this dwelling to one of his sons and moved to his farm home near Lansing's Ferry, at the north end of the Village. Here he died on October 9, 1791, one day after the death of his wife, Catherine (Leversee). Their double funeral procession wound south through the village to the family burial ground where they were interred and their graves marked by a very wide slab bearing the following inscription: In Memory of Mrs. Catherine Lansing, Wife to A.J. Lansing. She was born the 1st of March 1721 And died the 8th of Oct. 1791. Also; Mr. Abraham J. Lansing, Who was born 18 of April, 1720 And who died 9th of Oct. 1791.

Thus passed on the founder of the Village of Lansingburgh, whose foresight at that early date resulted in the rapid growth of a spacious and well planned village, with substantial homes and wide streets laid out in orderly squares, a credit to his memory. He had lived long enough to see his dream realized and the village he founded in 1770 growing and prospering. The issue of Friday, October 14, 1791 of the American Spy published at Lansingburgh, contains the following notice; "Died last Sunday evening at his seat, in the 72nd year of his age, Abraham J. Lansing, Esq., the original proprietor of this town. On Saturday morning preceeding, Mrs Catherine Lansing, his consort, died in the 69th year of her age."

At some date after February 23, 1865 their tombstone was moved to the Lansing-Lemon lot, No. 111, Sec. G., Oakwood Cemetery. The remains of the founder and his wife were removed at the same time and reburied in this lot. The original stone still marks their graves. Also removed from the Lansing burial ground to Lot 111 and reburied there were the following: (Their original tombstones were also removed and placed over their graves).

Row 1- extending across the front of the lot:
  • 1 - Erected To the memory of Catherine Lansing Consort of Levinus Lansing who departed this life March 26, 1822. Aged 70 yrs.,, 1 mo & 10 days.

Kind Angels watch her sleeping dust Till Jesus comes to raise the just Then may she wake with sweet surprise And in her Saviours image rise.
  • 2 - Erected to the Memory of Levinus Lansing who departed this life Oct. 16, 1836 aged 87 years, 2 mos. & 15 days. Son of Abraham Jacob Lansing and Catherine (Leversee) bpt. Aug. 6, 1749

  • 5 - In Memory of Abraham L. Lansing Who died May 30, 1837. Aged 62 years 3 mos & 18 days.

  • 6 - Levinus Lansing died Dec. 22, 1838. Aged 25 yrs., 1 mo. & 12 days. In prime of life I must step forth; And try the ways of all the earth; Though a short warning I must go; Death gave the stroke and laid me low.

Second row:
  • 1 - Susan A. Lemon wife of Maj. George F. Lemon and dau. of Abraham L. and Anna Lansing died Jan. 27, 1899, age 78 yrs. It was Susan who purchased this lot Feb. 23, 1865 and arranged for the removal of the remains of this group of people from the Lansing Cemetery to this lot. Note: Susan was buried in Oakwood and not removed from the Lansing ground. Her inscription included in this list to complete the record of this lot.

  • Lane Lot No. 99 Sec. D. Oakwood Cemetery, purchased Nov. 24, 1854. Among the people moved into this lot, it is difficult to determine which were moved from the Lansing Cemetery and which were moved from an early Troy Cemetery. The Lanes were first prominent merchants in Lansingburgh and later removed their business to Troy. Although the Oakwood Cemetery has excellent records, they do not include the names of the cemeteries from which removals were made. However, from a check of the obituary notices published at the time of their death, it is evident that the following were removed to this lot from the Lansing Cemetery.

    • 1 - This monument erected in the memory of Jacob A. Lansing, who was born Jan. 25, 1751 who died Feb. 25, 1801. Son of Abraham Jacob Lansing Founder of Lansingburgh, and Catherine (Leversee) Obituary for Jacob A.

LANSING Esq., formerly of this town, aged 59 years and on Friday his remains, attended by a large concourse of relatives and friends, were interred in the family burying ground in this Village.
    • 2 - Here lies the body of Alida Lansing, relict of Jacob A. Lansing, who died on the second day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand 8 hundred and twenty two aged 73 years & 10 mos. One record shows Alida as a dau. of William & Maria (Fonda) Leversee, Liversee, Lievense. Probably all the Leversees married into this family were related to each other. Alida appears in several Lansingburgh Town records in connection, with the ownership of slaves. Lansingburgh Gazette September 10, 1822. Died in this town on Monday the 2d inst. Mrs Alida Lansing relict of the late Jacob A. Lansing Esq., in the 74th year of her age.
    • 3 - This monument erected to the memory of Nathaniel J. Lansing born Dec. 19, 1778 died Jan. 18, 1805 26 yrs.

Cornelius died at his home in Lansingburgh, after a long illness and was first buried in the Lansing Cemetery. One record indicates that a family vault was located on the grounds of his home, and evidently the Lansings dying in the winter months were placed in this vault until the following spring.

  • Sacred to the memory of Mrs Abigail Bennet, mother of Mrs Cad. Golden, who departed this life in Pittstown (or in this Town), March 23, 1813 age 75 yrs. This stone is very-faded and it is not possible to be sure. The above inscription is from an earlier partial record. The stone certainly says Mrs. Abigail Bennet. I believe it says died in this Town and not died in Pittston. The year is 1813 or 1815. The age is probally 75 yrs. The most unclear part is the line saying- mother of Mrs. ....If Cad. Colden is correct, it would mean that Mrs. Abigail Bennet was the mother-in-law of Caldwallader Golden, who lived in Lansingburgh in the early 1800s. His name appears in a number of Lansingburgh records. Be was a descendant of the Caldwallader Colden who was Lieut. Governor of the Colony of New York from 1761 until his death. This interesting stone is down, and over in the section near the church building, close to a concrete walk.

He died of "Cholera" in a lovely old Dutch house on the present First Ave., Lansingburgh. Horatio was born 2/18/1778 at Tinmouth, Vermont. He lived Pittsford, Vt., Canaan and Lansingburgh, New York. Published genealogy gives death date as Aug. 7, 1832 in 55th yr. He married 1st- in Albany 5/10/1800 Hannah Bristol Married 2nd. Elizabeth Clark Hewitt.
