MIGRATION OF THE PALATINES TO THE MOHAWK VALLEY
Historians agree that the Palatines of Schoharie who migrated to the "Maquas (Moakes) Country" left Schoharie in 1722-23. While documentary proof does not appear to be available, it seems that a group of these people never went to Schoharie from the Hudson River site in 1712, but journeyed directly to the Mohawk Valley, via Schenectady. For instance: Martinus Dallenbach-who is referred to elsewhere in this record-together with Hendrick Young and others-enlisted in Col. Nicholson's expedition to Canada in 1711. The expedition petered out before the objective materialized and they returned. Nothing further is heard of Martin Dillenback (according to the "Dallenbachs of America" by Rev. Andrew Dillenbeck), except a baptismal record by Rev. Kocherthal in 1713, until he and twenty-one others secured a land grant of about 13,000 acres in Stone Arabia in 1722-23. This was the first patent issued by the Crown to Palatines of the Mohawk Valley of which there is any record, and suggests that a small group had settled in the Mohawk Valley prior to 1722 when the larger body arrived from Schoharie. It seems probable that these early settlers might have been in search of the "Great Flatts" site (German Flats) which had been under discussion as- a home for Palatines when they arrived in America in 1710.
Upon arrival at what is now Palatine Bridge, this small group must have found- the Frey settlement which antedated the Palatine emigration to America by approximately twenty years. Does it not seem reasonable that encountering a settlement of whites, speaking the same I language, they would abide at least temporarily in that vicinity, provided the land was up to their expectation? The likely thing for them to have done was to go up the slope from the river, two or three miles to what became Stone Arabia and squat on land which in about nine years' time would become their patent. It is true that some of the Palatines from Schoharie joined them in securing the land grant, which-could be expected, but it seems evident that the groundwork had been laid for securing this patent before the Schoharie group arrived in the Mohawk Valley.
Just prior to the time this patent was being negotiated, it appears from deeds recorded in the County Clerk's office in Albany that several Holland Dutchmen and others from Albany and Schenectady beat the Palatines to it, and just before their arrival from Schoharie these influential men secured land grants adjacent to the Mohawk River, extending from the "Nose" (below Sprakers) westward along both sides of the river. Some of these Albany and Schenectady land buyers were Harmon Van Slyck, Col. Philip Schuyler, Rutgar Bleecker, Stephannis Groesbeck, Francis Harrison, Abraham De Puyster, Philip Livingston, Hansen, Bradt and Van Home.
As the Palatines arrived in the Mohawks country from Schoharie they naturally associated with their brethren already settled there, and soon some of them were acquiring land in that vicinity and westward to the Great Flatts. Many of them settled permanently in what became the town of Palatine on the north side, and Canajoharie and Minden on the south side of the river. The Van Slyck patent extended from the Nose on the north side to what became Palatine Bridge. DePuyster had land adjacent along the river, and Groesbeck owned land on both sides of the river in that vicinity. The Harrison-Schuyler patent was just northwest of the land of DePuyster and began near what is now Nelliston. The Stone Arabia patent was northeast and abutting on the Van Slyck patent. The Bleecker patent, also known Otsquago patent, was located a few miles west on the south side of the river and embraced what is now Fort Plain and Frey's Bush as far south as what became the site of the Methodist church. The Livingston patent was located on the south of the Bleecker patent.
In 1730 Hendrick Young purchased 703 acres (Lot 14) from Col. Philip Schuyler, situated on the north side of the river and abutting property of Van Slyck and DePuyster. This tract must have been located between Nelliston and Stone Arabia and extended northeast. In 1732 Hendrick Young deeded this land to Stephanis Groesbeck. Theobald Young and Rutgar Bleecker witnessed the signature of Hendrick Young on the deed, which leads one to the conclusion that at that early date these two Young families were residing in the vicinity of what became Canajoharie and Fort Plain. In 1752 we find Theobald Young and three sons-Adam, Frederick and Andreas, securing the Young land patent of 14,000 acres at what is known as the Kyle or Chuyl and Little Lakes section in Herkimer county. The name of Theobald Young does not appear on the large list of names of those who secured the German Flats patent in 1725, as he was probably located at that time in the vicinity of Canajoharie, and probably remained there for several years, as the marriage of Adam is shown in the Stone Arabia church record in 1742 (born 1717), and Frederick became a road commissioner and one of the justices of Tryon county, appointed by Governor Tryon. While Frederick had an interest in the Theobald Young land grant, the record is not clear that he ever lived in Herkimer county, but rather south of Canajoharie. Adam did reside in the "Kyle" as elsewhere indicated. (See Theobald Young chapter).
About twenty years after the Theobald Young land grant was consummated, Jacob Young, son of Hendrick Young, in 1772, purchased several lots in the Bleecker patent (granted 1729). These lots were located in the western section of Fort Plain and in Freysbush. The two families mentioned-Theobald and Hendrick Jung (Young) appear to have been the only families bearing that name who came to the Mohawk Valley at the time of the early land grants mentioned, but there is some indication that Hendrick might have returned to Schoharie. Some of his children were apparently married in Schoharie as indicated by church records there, which was several years after his land deal mentioned above. If his family had been still living in the Mohawk Valley at the time of the marriages of the children, no doubt such marriages would have been recorded in the Stone Arabia church. In Hendrick's deed of lot 14 to Stephanis Groesbeck the words "him there into moving" appear. Theobald later located at Little Lakes (Young Lake) Herkimer county.
Johann Mattheus Young and wife remained at West Camp where he became a school teacher. Several of his children settled in Schoharie county in about 1760. (See Johan Mattheus Section-Part 2.) The historians, Simms, Beers, and Frothingham, maintain that a number of families came directly from the Hudson to the Mohawk Valley and did not locate in Schoharie, but that a few did come from the Schoharie Valley to the Mohawk in about 1717, approximately five years before the main body arrived. This, together with the foregoing facts, tends to prove that the town of Palatine was partially settled by some of these Germans before the large migration from the Schoharie Valley in 1722.

In the presence of us

In the absence of definite proof, one can only express the belief, based upon important evidence, that Hendrick Jung and wife, Anna Margaretha, were the immigrant parents of Jacob Young, who lived in the town of Minden, Montgomery county. The Rev. Joshua Kocherthal's church records show that on October 28, 1711, Maria Catharina was born to this couple, and on January 24, 1717, twins were born in Schoharie and named John Hendrick and Anna Margaretha Jung. Another child, Peter, is shown in the Schoharie records, but his birth date is not given.
The Simmendinger Register, prepared in 1717, as already indicated, shows that Hendrick and Anna Margaretha had four children up to that year. It seems apparent that Jacob Jung, (Sr.), who is given in the Fort Plain Dutch Reformed Church records (Sand Hill) as having been born in 1710 and died January 12, 1791, was the first child of Hendrick and Anna Margaretha. As 1710 was the year the Palatines arrived, Jacob may have been born on the high seas or in England before his parents sailed that year, and is not therefore shown in the Kocherthal Records. However, this Jacob Jung married Dorothy (perhaps Reichert) and his will on file in the Surrogate's Office at Fonda, N. Y., dated March 22, 1790, copy of which follows, bequeaths his property to his wife, Dorothy, and his children, Hendrick and Margaret (their grandparents' names;) Catharine, Elisabeth, Peter and Jacob, Jr. are also mentioned. Is it not reasonable to assume that Jacob Jung, Sr. named two of his children after their grand parents? And it will be noted that his other children bear the same names as those of Hendrick's, except Elisabeth, viz. Catharine, Jacob and Peter. Hendrick probably had an Elisabeth who, like Peter, was not recorded at the time of birth, or whose record at least has not been found.
Copy of Will of Jacob Young, Sr.
In the name of God, Amen. I Jacob Young, of the town of Canajoharie,
in the County of Montgomery, being of sound mind, memory and understanding
and considering the uncertainty of this frail and transitory life, do therefore
make, constitute and ordain this my last will and testament. Viz. principally
and first of all, I give my soul unto the hands of God who gave it, in hope
of a joyful resurrection and my body I recommend to the earth, to be buried
in a Christian like and decent manner at the discretion of my Executors hereinafter
named; and as to my worldly estate, I give devise and dispose thereof in the
following manner: First, I will that all my just debts and funeral expenses
Be paid and discharged. Secondly, I give, devise and bequeath all my estate,
real and personal within the County of Montgomery unto my two sons, Jacob
Young and Peter Young, their heirs and assigns forever, as Tenants in common.
Thirdly, I give and bequeath unto my daughters, Catherine, Margaret and Elizabeth,
their heirs, executors and Administrators, the sum of ninety pounds lawful
money of New York to be equally divided between them and to be paid out of
my estate, one year after my decease. Fourthly, I will and do ordain that
my said sons Jacob and Peter shall well and truly provide for and sufficiently
and comfortably maintain my beloved wife Dorothy and my son Hendrick Young
during their respective natural lives in meat, drink, washing, lodging and
apparel; and shall at all times give them such attendance as shall be necessary
in sickness and in health. Lastly, 1 make and ordain my said sons Jacob Young
and Peter Young to be | executors of this my last will and Testament, hereby
utterly revoking and disallowing all former Wills by me made. In witness whereof,
I have herewith set my hand and seal the twenty-second day of March in the
year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninety.
Jacob Young (LS)
Signed, sealed and declared by the said Jacob Young as and for

names as witnesses thereof at his request and in his presence and in the presence
of each other.

As previously indicated, Jacob Young, Sr. purchased several hundred acres of land from the Bleecker Patent in 1772, beginning at the Mohawk River and extending through the upper portion of Fort Plain (Sand Hill), and in Freysbush. This is shown by deeds on file in the County Clerk's office at Fonda. Following are copies of deeds which prove to be valuable family records, particularly one showing the transfer of Lot 17 of the Bleecker Patent in Freysbush from Jacob Young, Sr. down through the generations which followed. This lot finally came into possession of Daniel Young, grandfather of Clifford M. Young, and Daniel deeded it to John Plank, Jr. This lot contained one hundred acres originally, but was sold off until it finally comprised a single acre with the buildings thereon, and was later known as the "Peter B. Moyer place." Around 1875 Mr. Moyer built a new house on the site of the old one in which David Young, father of Daniel, died. Some adjacent land was added to the Moyer place and it is now the property of Raymond Failing, son of Fred and Bertha (Lambert) Failing.
Copy of Deed.
"This indenture made the 20th day of November in the year of our Lord 1811 between Jacob Young of the town of Canajoharie in the county of Montgomery in the State of New York yoeman, and Betsey, his wife, and Mary, relict of late Jacob Young, Jr. of the same place deceased, of the first part, and Frederick Young of the same place yoeman of the second part witnesseth: That whereas the said Jacob and Frederick Young, sons of Jacob Young deceased have been constituted tenants in common in fee in those two certain lots of land situated and lying in the aforesaid town in a patent granted to Rutger Bleecker, Nicholas Bleecker and others known and distinguished by the names Lot No. 5 and Lot No. 17 each respectively hereafter to be described by a public partition of the real estate of Jacob Young, the elder between the five children and heirs of said Jacob Young, Jr., their deceased father and their uncle Peter Young, as by the records of the court of Common Pleas for the county of Montgomery may be more fully seen and more particularly by the several ampleful and lawful. releases to them the said Jacob and Frederick made and executed and delivered by Lawrence Gross, Jr., and Nancy his wife, by Conrad Hahn and Catherine his wife and by David Young and Christina his wife, the children and heirs of said Jacob Young, Jr. their father as will appear by said releases in the care and possession of said Jacob and whereas the parties have judged that their interest would be better consulted by coming to an agreement for dissolving said comonry by releasing one another so that each may be sole and absolute owner of one of the said lots viz. said Jacob to possess in lu and his own right the lot number seventeen, wherein a release today to him thereof made will be fully determined and described, and said Frederick Young Lot No. five herein presently to be described and whereas said Mary, relict of Jacob Young, Jr., deceased is vested with the right of dower in said Lot No. 5 and has covenanted and agreed with her son Frederick to release to him the right so that said lot N9. 5 be clear and free and of her said right forever, she has for that end and purpose joined the party of the first part and will subscribe her name and affix her seal to these presents; that as aforementioned her son may be enabled to give a clear, tree, full and absolute title to said lot.
It will be noted that the Jacob Young, Jr. mentioned in the deed was a son of Jacob Young, Sr., whose will appears in the foregoing. Jacob and Frederick were sons of Jacob, Jr. and Mary -----.
Lot No. 5 contained 101 acres and Lot No. 17, 100 acres. The above deed was signed by Jacob Young, Betsey, his wife, Maria (Mary) relict of the late Jacob Young, Jr. deceased. Another deed recorded in Fonda, dated November 20, 1811; shows that Frederick Young deeded this lot No. 5 to George Nellis of Freysbush. The lot was located near the old toll gate and a short distance south of Fort Clyde.
Another deed recorded in Book 53, page 432 in the Montgomery County Clerk's office shows that Jacob Young deeded Lot No. 17 to David Young, his brother, under date of April 7, 1840. This lot is described as follows:
"Beginning at the public road leading from Fort Plain to Cooperstown westerly side at a point where the land owned by Joshua Webster, occupied by Joseph Smith joins the lot hereby conveyed, then along said line northerly about 250 feet, thence westerly about 250 feet as the fence now lies, thence southerly about 267 feet as the fence now lies to said highway near to an apple tree, thence along said highway 165 feet to the place of beginning, being part of lot 17 of Bleecker Patent is intended to contain one acre of land."
Note: This lot originally contained 100 acres, but at the time of the last mentioned deed it contained one acre with buildings thereon. The other 99 acres were purchased by Simeon Tingue.
David Young of Freysbush deeded Lot 17 in question to his son, Daniel Young, who in turn deeded the lot to John Plank, Jr., under date of 1850 for the sum of $260. The property is then described as follows:
"Beginning at the public highway leading from Fort Plain to Frey's Bush on the northwesterly side of said highway to a point where the lands of Simeon Tingue and now occupied by Peter C. Dunckel join the lot hereby intended to be conveyed, thence along said line northerly about two hundred and fifty feet at right angles southwesterly about 250 feet as the fence now lies thence at right angles south-easterly about 267 feet, as the fence now lies, to said highway, thence northeasterly along said highway about 165 feet to the place of beginning, being part of Lot No. 17 of Bleecker Patent and is intended to contain one acre of land be the same more or less, together with all hereditaments and appurtenances, etc."
Jacob Young, Jr. was a Revolutionary soldier and lived in Freysbush. He married Mary or Maria or Nancy Maria (maiden name not found) and they had children as follows:
Jacob, who married Elisabeth Cummings or Cumins, Dec. 15, 1810.
David, who married Christina Van Deusen, Feb. 2, 1806.
Frederick, who married Elisabeth Younglove.
Catharine, who married Conrad Hawn, Jr.
Nancy, who married Lawrence Gross, Jr.
Unfortunately, because of the destruction of the Sand Hill Dutch Reformed Church (High German Reformed) in Brant's raid on Wednesday, August 2, 1780, and because the Sand Hill cemetery records were lost, few dates have been found of births, marriages and deaths of those mentioned in the foregoing.
David Young, the great-grandfather of Clifford Marvin Young, was born in 1783 and died June 4, 1851. He is buried in the old part of the Freysbush cemetery. His wife-Christina Van Deusen- died in 1829 and her burial place is unknown. Her death occurred too early for interment in the Freysbush cemetery and her remains were not placed beside those of her husband. She was a sister of Martin, Barent, George, Catharine, Lydia, Maria and Gitty Van Deusen. The Barent (Barney) Van Deusen Bible is in possession of DeWitt Wiles and sister Abbie of Fort Plain, and records the year of death of Christina. Barent (tollgate keeper in Valley Brook) unfortunately did not give the names of his parents but entered in the Bible "Father died 1834; Mother died 1833". The writers of the Van Deusen family history apparently were without information as to the names of the parents of the Van Deusens mentioned. Washington Frothingham's "History of Montgomery County" gives the family history of Barent Van Deusen and also fails to identity the parents. He states that they lived in Greenbush, Rensselaer county, and moved to Montgomery county. Barent's wife was Nancy Yerdon. The will of Martin Van Deusen, dated Feb. 7, 1834, mentions his wife Nancy, sisters Catherine Wagner, Lydia Van Deusen, Maria Cramer and Gitty Plank, and his nieces Catharine Young and Maria Plank, and nephews Peter, Daniel and Jay Jacob Young, the last three and Catharine being the children of his sister Christina (Van Deusen) Young, deceased. This is the only record found of Peter Young, son of David and Christina Young, the other children's names appearing in baptismal records or were personally known to relatives still living. As David Young and Christina were married in 1806 there was ample time for the birth of other children between that date and the birth of Daniel, the first child of record, born in 1814.
A tracing of this Young family follows. Starting with Hendrick young and wife Anna Margaretha, the writer has endeavored, so far as possible to find and record dates of birth, marriages and deaths to the latest generation. This is followed by a story of Old Freysbush and a tracing of related families, such as Diefendorf, Lasher, Cook, Dillenback, etc.
From Jacob Young, Jr., down through this particular line of Youngs, there appears to be very few late descendants. The sons in each generation to a very large extent were either bachelors or had no sons to continue the name. In fact, no living descendants have been found outside of the family of the writer and his brother, who has no children. As will be observed by the Young genealogy which follows, Daniel Young and Sally had only one son, Marvin, who survived (two sons died in infancy) and he married Irene Lasher and they had two sons-Samuel L. and Clifford M. Young. The last named has two sons, Arthur D. and Harvey C. Arthur has a daughter, Margolyn and Harvey has a son, David. So from there on it rests with David, lest the family becomes extinct.
