a. Note:   e 3, 1914, pages 54-56. The Dumont family burying-ground is located on the south side of the Raritan river about one mile southwest of the village of Raratin. Peter Baptist Dumont received, by inheritance from his father, John Baptist Dumont (who inherited it from his father, Peter), the land on which the burying-ground was laid out. Peter the first, who died in 1744, is the oldest interment there. He purchased, June 10, 1702, a large tract, containing 2,000 acres (see Quarterly, Vol. I, pp. 110, 111). As the Dumonts married into the Vroom, Frelinghuysen and other families, the tombstones represent not only those of the Dumonts, but also others of the Elmendorf, Frelinghuysen, Loomis, Van Arsdale, Van Middlesworth, Vroom, Waterman, etc., families. The grounds are surrounded by a substantial brick wall, and is the best kept family burying-ground in somerset County of which we have any knowledge. The wall was built by Peter B. Dumont in 1827, and in 1911 was repaired by the Loomis family. At the latter date, as an extra protection, the wall was covered with plaster. The date of the wall appears on the outside of the west wall. Cox, Magdalen Van Middlesworth (wife of Robert), d. June 4, 1826, in 32nd yr. Cox, Sarah (dau. of Robert and Magdalen), d.
