A copy of the first edition [second printing] of my genealogical
compilation, 'The BURGHARDT/BURGET Family In America,' was recently sent
as a gift to the Columbia County, NY Historical Society in Kinderhook
for the use of the BURGHARDT/BURGET and allied families.
This publication primarily includes information about my branch of the
BURGHARDT/BURGET family [with variations of the spelling of the
surname], who were probably
German but lived among the Dutch in the Hudson River Valley around
Claverack, Kinderhook, and Albany in what is now Columbia Co. and Albany
Co., NY and nearby Great Barrington, Berkshire Co., MA during the
Subsequent generations migrated westward to Middleburgh, Schoharie Co.;
Harpersfield [Kortright], Delaware Co.; and Smithville, Chenango Co. in
up-state New York during the 1700's; Harpersfield, Ashtabula Co., OH in
early 1800's; Livingston Co., MO by the 1840's; Kings Valley, Benton
by the late 1840's; Sutter and Meridian, Sutter Co., CA by the 1860's;
Forestburg, Montague Co., TX by the late 1850's.
The first of three soft-bound volumes includes a 150 page narrative
family and an alphabetical index of the names of individuals included in
narrative as of the first printing in 1996.
The second of the three volumes [Appendix] contains Descendants Charts,
beginning with the oldest BURGHARDT family member that I had documented
1996, as well as an alphabetical Name Sorted List of those individuals,
BURGHARDT/BURGETs and allied families who married a BURGHARDT/BURGET.
A Descendants Chart for the first seven generations, as well as for four
main branches of the the descendants of Jehoiakim6 BURGHARDT, Sr. and
WHITE are included. Those four branches were: Judith7 BURGET and Josiah
DODGE; William7 BURGET, Sr. and Abigail ANDREWS; Milburry7 BURGET and
[Sally] ANDREWS; and Jehoiakim7 BURGET, Jr. and his two wives, Katherine
DODGE and Catherine Anne Sarissa PATTERSON.
The third volume of the set contains a 'Locality Sort List' generated on
the LDS 'Personal Ancestral File' program of the places and dates of
birth, marriage, death, and burial of those individuals currently listed
in my data base.
Copies of the original printing were also sent to the following
and genealogical societies and libraries around the country in those
where BURGHARDT/BURGET families migrated and lived:
Berkshire Co. Historical Society Great Barrington, MA
New York State Library Albany, NY
Dutch Settlers Society Albany, NY
Old Stone Fort Genealogical Library Schoharie, NY
Ashtabula Co. Historical Society Jefferson, OH
State Library of Ohio Columbus, OH

Benton Co. Historical Society Philomath, OR
California State Library Sacramento, CA
Sutter Co. Historical Society Yuba City, CA
Texas State Library Austin, TX
Montague Co. Genealogical Society Bowie, TX
State Library of Oklahoma Oklahoma City, OK
In researching this publication, an extensive network of individuals was
developed; and I have also especially enjoyed communicating with many of
to whom I am also indebted during my subsequent research since that

I currently have information on about 300 families of GARDENIER and

the information is from Latter Day Saints data. I would be happy to
share my information with anyone who has an interest in Gardeniers or
the people listed below, if you are also willing to share what you
know. The following is a long list of every non-Gardenier spouse that I

that interest you in the list below, please email me. We may both learn
For some surnames, more than one person is listed. They are separated

You may know someone by Betsey or Elizabeth rather than the Lysbeth that
appeared in early records. Quotation marks around a name indicate
nicknames. Dutch surnames also suffered from numerous spelling
variations. If you are not sure about a name that you see, take a
chance and write. Children and parents of spouses (I know many) are not

I am writing with another request for Burkes' in Columbia Co. or Hoosic
My first query was for a William Henry Burke who married an Elizabeth Hannon.
I have found his name while I was looking for another relative in an Army
Enlistment book. I am not sure if this is him though. This is the
information I found, I was wondering if anyone can connect him as the right
man. Their son was Frank Burke who married Minne Mae Bunt.
William H. Burke - age 20 yrs. enrolled 8/8/1861 @ Troy to serve 3yrs.
Mustered as Corporal, Co. D 8/12/1861. Promoted to Sergeant, 2nd Lt.
1/1/1863. Transfered to Co. A from 7/26/1863 - returned to Co. I in 8/1863.
Mustered in as 1st Lt. Co. D 1/20/1864 - Acting Regimental Adjuntan in
2/1864, Mustered out 10/29/1864 @ Varina, Va, Capt., NY Volunteers by bruet.
Commissioned 2nd Lt. 1/14/1863 with Rank from 1/1/1863, vice HW Brown
promoted: 1st Lt. 2/13/1864 with rank from 1/12/1864, vice HW Brown
That is word for word - I don't understand all of it, but hopefully someone
does and hopefully someone knows who he is.
Thanks in advance,
I have a set of gx3 grandparents married in 1824 at St. John's Lutheran
Church, Manorton, Columbia County. Can anyone tell me if this church is
still exists? What town would that be now?

Noticed some chatter about a Burget family. I have a loose end with a
family consisting of Henry (Harry?) Burget, b. 1800 whom married Magdelena
Mandeville. They lived in Stockport or Stuyvesant Falls and several of the
family died c 1850. A daughter named Catherine Elizabeth, b 1824 married
Arial Camwell. She died 1850 but I do not know whether there were any
Daughter Magdelena Burget (sister of Catherine) born 1827 leaves no history
nor burial record.
Does anyone have info on this family grouping.
I am fairly new to the group and new to researching genealogy. I have shared
information with others AND located unknown family members as a result! It's
been a wonderful experience.
However, I was asked if my children <all under age 12> could be added to
someone's records <not a problem> and if the information could be freely
passed around to others who are inquiring into the family ancestry.
My husband and I are not comfortable passing our children's full names and
birthdates around to people whom we have never had contact with, those who
have become close as a result of our search, it is not a problem.
Am I censoring data unfairly? How do other parents handle the passing of
this type of information?

Subject: NEW LEBANON MARRIAGES
Dear List Members,
Seeking marriage record of Harry/Henry CROW and Thankful WHEELER who married ca 1826 in New Lebanon, Columbia Co, NY. Both were born and lived in Montgomery, Hampden Co, MA. Thankful was later a member of the Presbyterian Church in Porter Co, IN.
I purchased to no avail MARRIAGES IN NEW LEBANON, NY performed by Rev. Silas Churchill, 1795-1851 and Ira Hand, J.P, 1832-1852 and wrote to and did not receive an answer from Rev. Ernest Smith, Town Historian.
What other avenues of research can list members advise?
Responses will be appreciated.
In a message dated 7/23/99 11:01:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time,
<< In a couple of papers I have, I see reference to my ancestors moving to
the area at or near Kinderhook. Further, they say that they acquired
"landed property" there by a patent granted by King James II, March
Does anyone know where I might find out more about this? Are these
patents recorded somewhere? Would it be possible to find out just where
the property was?
Ellis' History of Columbia County states as follows on p.20:
" Burgar Huyck and others received a patent for six thousand acres,
Oct. 2, 1731 from Rip Van Dam, president and Archibald Kennedy and
Cadwallader Colden, counsillors, for lands on "both sides of Kinderhook
creek, and running north to the south bounds of Rensselaerswyck, and east
along that line 70 chains""
Hi I am new to this list and am hoping some one out there will be able to help me. I am trying to locate my Grand father. Selim Romine Sheller. He was born in the late 1880s or early 1890s and died I believe in the 1940s in Kinderhook NY which is in Columbia County. Does any one have any information on this man. I am trying to find out where he is for my mother. she is on her death bed and I would like her to know we located him before she passes. She has not seen him since she was a little girl. I think this would help her rest better. Thank you very much for any help that any one may be. Grateful Marlene Bassett, lena(a)baldcom.net.
Thought I'd pass on info from an article in the July 22, 1999
"Independent" (local Columbia County newspaper). Some photos - or
negatives - taken of WWII recruits right after they were inducted were
found in an old photo studio. Unfortunately, there are no names on the
pictures, but the date of induction is on the picture. These are group
photos, not individuals. From the article:
"Veteran Service Agency Director Benjamin Murell has a handful of manila
folders crammed with the photo negatives of men inducted into the armed
services from 1941 to 1955. The county..had contracted with Rowles
Studios to take the photos. The soldiers were captured on the steps or
in the lobby of the county court house the day they left for active
"The negatives were gathering dust in a closet at 441 Warren Street, the
former home of Rowles Studios, until the current owner, a Long Island
City man, gave them to Mr. Murell. Mr. Murell says he will hold the
negatives for now and give residents a chance to go through them. 'They
can make a print from the negative as long as they promise to return it
for the other families,' he said. Anyone interested in looking at the
photos should do a little research first....The negatives are in no
particular order but are dated with the day of induction. That date
should be on discharge papers.
"The negatives can be seen at the Veterans Service Agency Office at 401
State Street [Hudson]. For information call that office at

Do you know of any possible connection between the BOGERT family and the
family of Hendrick Coenradse BURGAART [b. abt 1645; d. 16 Jun 1703,
probably around Claverack, Columbia Co., NY]?
