          Josiah Hornblower is buried in this cemetery along with his wife and many of Belleville's early settlers. Sixty-two Revolutionary soldiers are also buried here. It could be that no other town in the United States can make such a claim. Actually, there are at least three more Revolutionary vets that are not listed because they fought in other regiments. They are Col. Van Courtland, who is buried in the Van Courtland crypt, and Captains Robert and Gerard Rutgers, whose monuments are in the Rutgers plot, making a total of sixty-five Revolutionary vets. This is truly a historical fact, one of which Belleville should be proud. The Rutgers that are buried here are related to Col. Henry Rutgers for whom Ruters University is named.
