Trans-Allegheny Pioneers: Historical Sketches of the First White Settlements West of the Alleghenies, 1748 and After
Genealogical Publishing Com, 2009/06/01 - 330 ページ
The town of Schenectady and its surrounding district played an important role in the Revolutionary War, thanks to its strategic location along the Mohawk River. The early pioneers of the town were primarily Dutch, but a number of Irish, English, Scotch-Highlander and Scotch-Irish, and Palatine German immigrants settled in the region as well. Based primarily on the minutes of the area's Committees of Safety, this History is arranged in two parts. The first part, which details the Schenectady District's participation in the Revolutionary conflict, names numerous residents and is peppered with footnotes giving biographical and historical information. The second part, which comprises more than half of the volume, focuses on military service records.
