St. Paul's Wurtemburg Cemetery Revolutionary War Veterans 
Pomeroy Sign Dedication


St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Wurtemburg in Rhinebeck was recognized as the final resting place of veterans of the American Revolution as part of a collaboration between the church, the William G. Pomeroy Foundation and the Sons of the American Revolution. A historical marker identifying the churchyard as a Patriot Burial site was placed along Wurtemburg Road and unveiled and dedicated on November 12, 2023.

The St. Paul’s Lutheran Church at Wurtemburg congregation dates to 1760 and the current church building was constructed in 1802. Extensive research through 18th and early 19th century primary records and archives verified the Revolutionary War veterans and their final resting places. The Revolutionary War veterans are Martinus Ackert, Johannes Marquart,
George Burger, Abraham Traver, Bastian Traver. Also buried in the church yard are probable veterans, yet unable to find definitive proof of service, are David Traver, John Peter Wallace, Michael Pultz, Frederick
Cookingham, Solomon Traver, George Ackert, Garret Dedrick and Jacob Traver.
