Born in Somerset County, New Jersey in 1793, and moved to Farmersville, New York in 1816, with his home near this cemetery. Peter T. Tenbrock and his immediate family are buried in this plot. Peter T. Tenbroeck was a successful farmer, was a county judge, gave generously to the public of his funds and time during his life and at the time of his death left a trust fund of $60,000.00 to be used for the building of an academy to provide free education for high school students in the area and to be known as Tenbroeck Free Academy. At that time few scholars had oportunity of continuing with their education past fourth grade. Later Tenbroeck Free Academy became a part of the Franklinville Public School System.
