Ironically, after the World Wars pinhedz relatives tried to pretend that our Tryon-County-militia ancestors were Dutch, because they didn't want to be German (even though they still wanted to be in the DAR).

heggum hoggum, i mean shoot, the Palatine German settlements of Stone Arabia (about 1712) and of German Flats (about 1720-1725) form the two most important German settlements on the Mohawk, that of Stone Arabia being the first along that river and the German Flats settlements being the first white locations in the upper Mohawk Valley. It is probable that the Palatines settled on and opposite the West Canada Creek as early as 1720, as they are known to have skedaddled and made individual purchases of land from the Mohawks as early as 1720.

Palatine Germans settled along the Schoharie River and at Stone Arabia, Montgomery County, in 1712.

The Palatine settlement at German Flats is of great historical importance because for over sixty years (1722-1783) it formed the outpost of the old New York frontier and in that period it suffered terribly from fourteen years of warfare in the French-Indian war and in the Revolutionary war. In fact, as he said, Governor Burnet settled these Palatine pioneers there as an outpost to meet the first hostile French blow from Canada, by way of the Black River or Oswego. Governor Burnet died from illness contracted after his carriage overturned and dumped him in smelly water.

Some of the deeds say "Osquako."

... and then Chief Joseph Brant burnt Henry Walrath's farmhouse (which he called "Fort Walrath") while Henry was guarding the supply shipment on the way to Fort Stanwix, and Mrs. Walrath (nee Bauman) had to run to Fort Plain and shoot at Brant from there.

So, if you spell her name "Bowman" instead of "Bauman," does that make it less German? scratch

You can be in the DAR, or you can be Dutch, but you can't have it both ways. bounce
