This web site was started over 20 years ago to support the Knickerbocker Historical Society at Schaghticoke, NY and to provide a spot for sharing family information. The genealogy world has greatly changed from my publishing a paper family newsletter in the 90s to having massive commercial on-line sites and DNA based genealogy available today.
I have kept this site available to provide the base family genealogies and as a link to the Society. Research of a more general nature will always have a home here. Welcome Cousin.
Bryan just emailed me his latest study entitled “John P. Knickerbocker & Anna Couse”. Link
Mistakes are corrected in VanAlstyne from a series of bible transcriptions found by Bryan and George at Albany.
Studies that will be posted over the next several months:
· John Knickerbocker & Susan Pulver. This next one will be much more meaningful as it identifies men named Peter Knickerbocker, John Knickerbocker, and Benjamin Knickerbocker - and links to several entries in the 1850 census that I previously had in my "unknown" bucket (Bryan).
· Frederick, son of Hugh Knickerbocker & Rachel Schram
· Benjamin, son of Phillip Knickerbocker Jr. & Mary Snyder. This is a major addition to the “Benjamin” name study.
· The migrations and wanderings of the Lawrence2 families. This is a major addition to Bryan’s earlier investigations to bring this family to the 4th generation.
These - and all the previous studies - will be used to reconstruct the early Knickerbocker family and connect it to the 1850 census. The 1908 VanAlstyne genealogy will be corrected and expanded.
