Inscription: DICK Slave of John F. Pruyn, Died Nov’r 15, 1799 aged 16 Yrs, 8 mos. Albany Rural Cemetery Old Church Section "Nothing is known about this young man beyond the inscription on his gravestone. John F. Pruyn, a well-known skipper and merchant, was the owner of at least six slaves whom he began to gradually emancipate not long after Dick’s death. Exactly why Dick was provided with a headstone in an era when most slaves and even freed blacks were buried in unmarked and now lost graves is also unknown." Short bio of John F. Pruyn I met the state historian at the cemetery years ago to show him this stone. Mr. Zielinski thought it was significant that Dick had a marker. John Pruyn had no children of his own, so perhaps he looked upon Dick with some favor. This is a repost of an old scan.
