_____EARLY HISTORY OF NEW CONCORD, NY 1760-1856 by Paul T. Veillette. This well documented history of an early Columbia county village presents evidence of the New England character of the early inhabitants. New Concord, located in the Town of Chatham, was founded in approximately 1760 by predominantly Connecticut settlers who brought with them their Congregationalist traditions. The community remained small. Even by 1860, French's "Gazeteer of New York State" records only 109 inhabitants and one church. This book is written from the point of view of the people and uses the resources of church records, cemetery records, and tax lists to establish relationships. Families discussed in great detail are: Beebe, Cady, Clark, Ingraham, Lovejoy, Palmer, Pratt, and Savage although hundreds of other surnames are included. Of special interest are the 26 pages of photographs of currently existing houses in this hamlet together with the history of their inhabitants. hardbound, 189 pages, 2 indexes #158 $39.95

CORTLAND COUNTY

To return to the top.

_____Pioneer History of Cortland County and the Border Wars of New York
H. C. Goodwin
. Cortland County is located almost directly in the center of New York State. Its mountainous and often inhospitable landscape posed various difficulties for its earliest settlers. Goodwin discusses in depth the tumultuous tribulations which faced those settlers in their mission to establish and maintain civilized life in the midst of colonial conquest, border wars, Indian raids and the like. Specific episodes addressed reflect the very violent and disconcerting nature of life on the New York frontier, and how the inhabitants of Cortland County persevered to found a thriving community in the Appalachian Mountains of New York. Of particular interest to the genealogist are the sections that concern the emigration to Cortland County, and the settlement and organization of towns there. The author's format is easy to understand and follow. Discussing each major settlement individually, he builds the town from the ground up, including: who the first homesteaders in the area were, what sort of business was carried out there, how local government was set up and administered, and who the most prominent families and citizens were. These chapters possess a bounty of information regarding family history: names of those who settled, what town they settled in, what their occupations were, where they came from, who their offspring were, who and how many family members still survived when this book was originally published, etc. Also helpful is the portion of the book, dubbed Biographical Sketches which discusses even more thoroughly the area's most distinguished citizens. A new fullname index will greatly assist those interested in researching Cortland County. 5.5x8.5 Paper 480 pages $34.50 #G552

Charles R. Street. The town of Babylon formed part of the old town of Huntington until the passage of an act in 1872 made it a separate town. This first volume embraces what may be termed the foundation history of the town. It tells us of the pioneers who first settled Huntington, where they first established their homes; how they acquired title to their lands; the character of the Indian tribes they found here and the treaties they made with them. It tells us when and where the early  settlers founded churches and schools; their long and bitter contests with rival communities to maintain the boundaries of their town; their methods of land division; their persistent hostility toward the Dutch government of New Netherlands, and their friendship with the New England colonies. In short, it affords a view of the social, political, religious and personal lives of our ancestors during this remote period of American history.

Orleans County

_____Pioneer History of Orleans County, New York
Arad Thomas. The early history of Orleans County, on the south shore of Lake Ontario (about 40 miles east of Niagara Falls) in western New York State, reveals the Iroquois Indians of what is now western New York at war with the Algonquins and Hurons of what is now Canada. Into this scene came the French explorers, following the St. Lawrence River and the Great Lakes westward many years before the English settled western New York. The French formed an alliance with the Algonquins and Hurons against the Iroquois. The Iroquois fared so well in this contest that they prevented any French settlement in New York, apart from a trading post at the mouth of the Niagara River and a few missionaries. The French continued to claim New York as French territory, and settlements near Lake Ontario would pass back and forth between French and English possession, depending who had the upper hand, until the territory was surrendered to the United States in 1796.

In 1850, the revised Fugitive Slave Law not only threatened runaway slaves and black citizens living in free states with imprisonment and fines, but also the abolitionist sympathizers who helped them. In The Underground Railroad in Orange County, New York: The Silent Rebellion,  some of the brave and compassionate people who secretly put their own lives on the line to help fugitives get safe passage to Canada are identified. Roger King is a master tombstone preservationist, genealogist, teacher and author. He became interested in the Underground Railroad after the discovery of shallow graves in the cellars of some old houses situated near the Erie Railroad, and seeing tunnels that still exist under others. As he began documenting the information and pulling together stories passed down through local families, the secret trail emerged. Through The Underground Railroad in Orange County, New York: The Silent Rebellion, Roger A. King highlights some events in that secret rebellion waged in opposition to a horrendous law and the federal agents who enforced it. Using newspaper articles and local memoirs, he describes these humanitarian acts which serve to educate and enlighten readers of all ages, and boldly acknowledges these true American heroes. The ghosts of history that swirl through the cemeteries find that they encounter Roger King who captures their spirits and enlightens all of us.  ISBN: 0-912526-83-1, paper, 96 pages, index, illustrations, map, available October 1999

Mary S. Jackson and Edward F. Jackson. Beginning in 1880 in New York State, town clerks began recording vital records, prior to that date, local newspapers were "one of the best sources for these vital records."

The first half of the book contains marriage notices and the second half death notices. Each newspaper has its own section and the notices are organized chronologically within each. Generally the marriage notices contain the full names of both bride and groom, where each was from, the location of the marriage, and the date of the ceremony. The death notices, which provide a more varied assortment of information always contain the date of death or the date of the newspaper. Other information provided in death notices may include the date of birth, location of death, and names of relatives yet surviving. "AIthough these newspapers were published in Seneca County, they include notices for the surrounding counties" and "many notices for those people who moved to other towns in New York or to other states."

    _____The Fitch Gazetteer: An Annotated Index to the Manuscript History of Washington County, New York, Volume 1 - Kenneth A. Perry. Over three decades, from 1847 to 1878, Dr. Asa Fitch of New York state collected a series of articles towards a history and genealogy of Washington County and the surrounding region. This manuscript, part of the collection of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, has previously been available only on microfilm, but its contents have now been indexed and compiled here into an annotated, alphabetical list by subject, using the chronological form of the original manuscript. In collecting his data, Dr. Fitch combined personal interviews with the oldest settlers of the region and their descendants with primary source material including family records, unrecorded deeds, wills, cemetery records, early court proceedings and newspapers, and unpublished manuscripts, most of these prior to 1850. The numerous genealogical entries and family records featured in this manuscript trace the growth of the original families who arrived in the 1760s and the New England settlers who arrived just prior to the Revolutionary War, attempting to locate their places of origin, and carrying their descent into the 3rd, 4th and sometimes 5th generations. The complete contents of Dr. Fitch's manuscript are currently available only on microfilm, with a separate name index. Just short of a complete transcription of its contents, Kenneth Perry's The Fitch Gazetteer organizes the manuscript's contents by surnames, topics and geographic location, in alphabetical order. Entries are annotated, citing the original location of the article in the manuscript, frequently paired with direct quotes from the original. Entries are also cross-referenced to related topics.Dr. Fitch's original manuscript was divided into seven volumes, which Kenneth Perry's indexing has compiled into four. This Volume One contains the following: Champlain's discovery; incidents of the French and Indian wars; early Dutch settlers; the system of granting land patents; border disputes with the Hampshire grants; the massacres of Jane McCrea and the Allen family during the Burgoyne campaign; the great Burning of 1780; bestsellers in 1798; Dr. Clark's colony from Northern Ireland; Laughlin Campbell's colony from Scotland; colonial and Revolutionary War forts; the battles of Hubbardton, Bennington and Saratoga; Tory and Whig guerrilla activities; Revolutionary War prisoners, both soldiers and civilians; ferries across the Hudson river, German mercenaries; militia activities; Millerism; records of the Royal and Revolutionary War courts, 1773-1784; sheep raising during the early 1800s; Capt. Schuyler's journal, 1690; criminal offenders, 1798-1811; the War of 1812; and the Battle of Plattsburgh.

    _____WESTCHESTER COUNTY: THE PAST HUNDRED YEARS 1883-1983
    Various authors. In this work you will find a detailed and well-researched chronicle, authored by distinguished individuals, of Westchester's last 100 years. In addition, there are sections dealing with both institutions particular to the county government and with the particular state of things that people everywhere enjoy, e.g. the arts. Under the guidance of the Editorial and Publications Committee of the Westchester County Historical Society, the authors who have contributed to this work have painted a vivid picture of life in Westchester County during the past century. Picking up where nineteenth-century historian J. Thomas Scharf left off, the contributors have traced Westchester's evolution from a rural region to the nation's premier suburban county. Emerging from this story of Westchester's century-long transformation are colorful people, exciting firsts (e.g. the construction of the world's first parkways) and a glimpse of the county's future beyond the Tricentennial. Carefully selected illustrations enhance each chapter, making the book a visual delight as well as a comprehensive account of a lesser known phase of Westchester history. 7x10 368 pages index biblio Hardcover $24.95

    _____Westchester County A Pictorial History New and Revised Edition
    Susan Cochran Swanson and Elizabeth Green Fuller. In his Foreword, Richard Maass, Westchester County historian, writes. "This is more than a social history of a county. It is an engaging, well-written and documented record of three centuries of growth in an area which has always provided leadership for America, both in men and ideas." The county of Westchester was officially created by an act of the New York General Assembly on November 1, 1683. Though exploration of the region had begun with Verrazano in 1524 and Hudson in 1609, Westchester was still wilderness at the time of its official birth. There were few roads, the best transportation was by water, and most of the food consumed was grown in the county. Since that time, the county has undergone enormous changes in a history that is one of the richest in the United States. Visiting every town in the county, speaking to town historians, librarians and local historical societies, the authors have collected and painstakingly captioned hundreds of photographs, maps, and illustrations. The written capsule history of the county accompanies the photographs and provides the reader with a meaningful overview of the evolution and growth of the county. In celebration of Westchester's 300th birthday, here is a superb chronicle of the past, and a treasure trove of memories for future generations. 8.5x11 200 pages index photos Hardcover $35.00

New York forces were divided into Lines, Levies, and Militias, and these units, combined with men from coastal privateers, totalled 43,645, but if we add the 8,237 men named in the Land Bounty Papers in this second edition, a total force of nearly 52,000 men is arrived at, all of whom are conveniently located in the index to the first volume Some three years after the publication of the second edition of New York in the Revolution, the State Comptroller's Office published a second volume, or Supplement, of Nev, York in the Revolution, in effect, a compilation of the documents and records in the Comptroller's Office that were used in compiling the rolls and rosters in the first volume. In the reprint edition that we are now offering, these two scarce volumes have been combined into one and New York's contribution to the Revolutionary War is finally enshrined in a single, accessible and affordable volume, one we are confident anyone with an interest in New York history and genealogy will appreciate.

    The Holland Land Company was a stock corporation formed by six Dutch banking houses for the purpose of buying land in New York By the year 1797 the Company had purchased some 3.3 million acres of land in western New York, west of the Genesee River. Known as the Holland Land Purchase, all this land was sold off by 1839. This present work is an index to the records, the Land Titles, of the Holland Land Company from their inception in 1804 until the year 1824. Also covered are the land transactions in Morris' Reserve and a tract of land known as the 40,000-Acre Tract, both east of the Purchase. Touching on some 40,000 individual land transactions, the extracts given here provide the purchaser's name, the location of the purchase, the date of the transaction, the type of transaction, and a citation to the original source and microfilm The area covered in this work extends from Genesee County west to the counties of Erie, Chautauqua, and Canaraugus, covering such towns as Buffalo and Batavia.

    In this, the sequel and concluding volume to the work above, compiler Karen Livsey has extracted all useful genealogical data from the Land Tables of the Holland Land Company Working from microfilm copies of the original records now in the custody of the Municipal Archives of Amsterdam, Holland, Mrs Livsey-for each of the 70,000 transactions that took place between 1825 and 1835-supplies the name of the purchaser, the date of the transaction, the location of the land, the type of transaction (original article, subsequent receipt, or renewed contract), and a reference to the original source and the microfilm. Many of the settlers listed in the Land Tables ultimately moved away without ever recording a deed. Thus, this work not only identifies 70,000 pioneers of western New York, it also identifies thousands of people whose names were never recorded in official county land records. And with a date and a location, researchers can also examine other Company records on microfilm, such as correspondence and financial records.

    PALATINES/HUGUENOTS

    To return to the top.

     

    _____HISTORY OF THE HUGUENOT EMIGRATION TO AMERICA
    Charles W Baird. This is the standard work on the Huguenot emigration to America, on which subject there is no higher authority than Charles Baird! Baird’s work is so thorough that there are few Huguenot names for which some new fact or illustration is not supplied. The bulk of the work is devoted to the important emigration of French Protestants (via the Netherlands and Great Britain) in the last quarter of the 17th century to the time of the Revolutionary War. Throughout the text, in both narratives and records, there is a profusion of genealogical detail on the early Huguenot families of Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and Virginia, later families having dispersed to Pennsylvania and other states. Some key material is provided in the appendices, which contain an important list of "Walloon and French Petitioners" (1621) who asked permission to settle in Virginia and who may have emigrated to New Netherland (New York) instead, and "Notes from the Walloon Records of Leyden," 1597—1627, which further identifies these same settlers. The names alone of such a large number of emigrants, recorded with painstaking care in text, notes, and appendices, are sufficient testimony of the book’s longstanding appeal and the reason it remains the basic source- book for research into Huguenot origins. 2 vols. in 1. 354 and 448 pp., illus., maps, indexed, cloth. (1885), reissued 1998 $45.00

    _____TRAIL OF THE HUGUENOTS In Europe, the United States, South Africa, and Canada
    George Elmore Reaman. Here is the fascinating story of the great exodus of Huguenots from France at the end of the seventeenth century and of their subsequent dispersal to places as widespread as the United States, Canada, South Africa, and Eu rope. While the digging out of family roots of other groups has already taken place to a large extent, it has remained for Dr. Reaman to gather this information about the two million French Protestants and their descendants and to present it in The Trail of the Huguenots as the first coherent account of the Huguenot Dispersion. The work examines the persecution of the French Protestants and traces their migrations through Europe and across the Atlantic to the United States and Canada, providing startling insights into the origins of many of our earliest colonial settlers. The largest section, comprising over half the book, is devoted to the Huguenots and their direct descendants in the U.S. and Canada, and an Appendix contains the names of hundreds of Huguenot immigrants with the dates and places of their arrival. The work also contains a list of English surnames of French derivation, additions and corrections by Milton Rubincam, and an index of names and places other than those mentioned in the genealogies and appendices. (1966). 318 pp., illus., indexed, cloth.  $25.00

    _____Palatine Roots - The 1710 German Settlement in NY as experienced by Johann Peter Wagner
    Dixon, Nancy Wagoner.

The Palatines of Olde Ulster is an 80 page paperback for $9.95.

    _____LIBERTY MARCH: THE BATTLE OF ORISKANY
    Allan D. Foote. The Battle of Oriskany is a history of three Mohawk Valley cultures, Native American
    Iroquois, Loyalist British, and Patriot Palatine, which would clash in the wilderness inferno at Oriskany. It is the true story of a column of citizen soldiers who entered a ravine in upstate New York as Palatine settlers and Oneida Indians, and emerged as American heroes.  . . . on the sixth of August 1777, seven hundred and sixty men of the patriot Tryon County Militia, allied with sixty Oneida Indian warriors, clashed with a mixed force of Iroquois and Loyalists in a pivotal engagement of the American War of Independence. The militia brigade and the Oneidas were marching to the relief of a besieged Fort Stanwix when they were ambushed by Iroquois warriors (primarily Senecas and Mohawks), Tory rangers, and a detachment of the King's Royal Regiment of New York. As a result, the ground called Oriskany was forever sealed in the annals of United States history. This generation can pay no better tribute to the pioneers of the Mohawk Valley than to rescue from oblivion the true import of the deeds they did.
