Source Notes:

1. ^ Bergen County Historical Society historic marker

2. ^ The Closter NJ Historic Preservation Commission's Nomination Report for the Resolvert Nagel House and Farm Complex states on Page 1, "During the American Revolution all four male family members associated with this household served in the Bergen County Militia under George Washington. Their association with the American Revolution has been documented in pension records obtained through the National Archives."
This document is available online as a PDF here.

3. ^ The dates are taken from the gravestones of these five men. The information about their military ranks is taken from modern plaques that were installed in front of their graves. According to the Closter NJ Historic Preservation Commission's website, "In 1961 Ralph Heaton of the American Legion obtained official granite plaques from the Veterans Administration and placed them at the foot of five Revolutionary soldiers' graves." In the case of Joseph Demarest, the dates themselves were taken from his modern plaque, because the dates were no longer readable on his obelisk style grave marker.

It should be noted that for all four of the other graves, the 1961 plaques have dates that contradict the original gravestones. The dates on the original gravestones are used in the main entry above, on the assumption that the original stones might be more accurate.
For those who might be interested, here are the dates given on the 1961 plaques:
Garret Auryansen: February 8, 1749 - January 29, 1831
Resolvert Auryansen: Jan 4, 1744 - October 27, 1835
Barent Naugle: April 26, 1755 - October 17, 1836
David Naugle: Died June 2, 1831
