Regarding Burial Place. Inside the Carlisle Rural Cemetery there are additional and separate markers
John M. Brown, 1745-1838, Captain of Militia during Revolutionary War. Appointed Judge of first Court of Common Pleas in Schoharie County. Author of "A Brief Sketch of the First Settlement of the County of Schoharie by the Germans."
It must be pointed out that the dates given on the Burial Place marker for John M. Brown , 1771-1823, do not coincide with the dates on the grave site marker or the gravestone itself, which lists 1745-1838 for Brown. The reasons for this discrepancy remain unclear.
Thomas Machin, 1744-1816, Captain of Artillery and Engineer of national renown during Revolutionary War. Supervised the making and laying of The Great Chain across the Hudson River near West Point.
