It has been documented that the earliest settlers of the Tappan Patent owned slaves; indeed, Daniel DeClark owned two slaves when he lived on this site. These grave stones are attributed to a cemetery on farm land, once owned by the Mann family, located two miles to the east where the Palisades Interstate Parkway now intersects Oak Tree Road. These grave stones, marked simply with one to three letters, identified enslaved persons, probably of African descent, who worked on the Mann Farm.
