Brinckerhoff Cemetery is presently privately owned.
What has been known since the 1930s as the Brinckerhoff Cemetery in Queens was once the burial ground of the rural Flushing township crossroads community of Black Stump (later Union Place), which developed around the intersection of the Black Stump Road, leading eastward towards Hempstead, and Fresh Meadow Road, which connected the villages of Flushing and Jamaica.
The burial ground, in use by 1730 based on the earliest dates on grave markers, was located on the border between two farms -- the Brinckerhoff-Skidmore-Schleider Farm and the Noorstrandt-Hendrickson-Purdy-Eiseman Farm.
The first listing of visible gravestone inscriptions, compiled in 1900 by Josephine C. Frost as part of her manuscript Long Island Cemetery Inscriptions, included the names of inter-related Dutch families of many of the surrounding farms, including Adriance, Allen, Anthony, Bloodgood, Brinckerhoff, Hoogland, Montfort, Rapelye, Ryder, Ryerson, and Snedeker.
