Kudos to both you and Agnes for making the 'Will Abstracts for the Town
of Kinderhook, Columbia Co., NY' available to the Columbia Co., NY
RootsWeb mailing list!!
The wills of Jan Hendrickse BURGHARDT and his son, Garrett, were among
the abstracts. The names of children, grandchildren, and in-laws listed
in these abstracts have answered many questions for me.
I have not yet perused the other abstracts, but expect that will also be
very useful, since the BURGHARDT families from around Claverack and
Kinderhook intermarried with many individuals of many of those
families--GOES, HALLENBECK, HUYCK, KITTELL, KLAUW, LEGRANGE, MOOR[E],
VAN DEUSEN, and VOSBURG.
Jan was a brother of my direct ancestor, Coenreat Hendrickse BURGHARDT,
who also lived in Claverack and Kinderhook before migrating to the area
around Great Barrington, Berkshire Co. [then Hampshire Co.], MA in the
early 1700's to help establish 'Housatonic Colony.'

> I have just posted 25 will abstracts for the Town of Kinderhook, Columbia Co., NY (1708-1786). All were proved in New York City at a time before a Surrogate's Court was established in each county in 1787. New Amsterdam / New York City was the capitol of New York Province/State until the capitol moved to Albany in 1797. [NYC even became the first capitol of the United States in 1789, but only remained so for a year. In 1790, the capitol moved to Philadelphia.]. Apparently, if a will had a value over 50 pounds, it had to be proved by the provincial government. That government had its seat in New York City. When NY became a state in 1777, the capitol did not change until 1797 when it moved to Albany.
> Agnes Cloninger typed the will abstracts, and I created the index of 328 names that were in the wills. Since I was born in the Town of Kinderhook, this project has been very special for me. My thanks to Agnes for her tireless efforts in this project that will increase our online knowledge of Columbia Co.

Thank you for answering this post. It is an old one and I have visited the Old Kinderhook twice since I posted it. Lovely old cemetery!
As for the Mulvey line, it is my husband's and his family comes from Boston, MA. His grandfather's name was Michael Mulvey from Roscommon, Ireland. Wife's name Delia Gumming. They came to the USA in the late 1800s or early 1900s. That is as far as I have been able to trace. My husband Gerard's father's name was also Michael Joseph Mulvey but went by the name of Joe. He was a Metropolitan policemand in Boston and had a brother named John. I have just started research on this line and this is about all the information I have.
Sarah WHITE and Jehoiakim BURGHARDT, Sr. had several of their children
baptized by the Rev. Gideon BOSTWICK at Nobletown [now Hillsdale],
Columbia Co., NY between 1770-1793 before migrating on westward to
Schoharie, Delaware, and Chenango Co.'s of NY and subsequently to
Ashtabula Co., OH ca. 1813.
Rev. BOSTWICK's records of St. James Episcopal Church of Great
Barrington, Berkshire Co., NY list the following WHITE individuals who
were also baptized and/or married by Rev. BOSTWICK.
Perhaps these individuals were siblings of Sarah [WHITE] BURGHARDT.
Has anyone on the List researched the WHITE family of Columbia Co., NY?
Thanks for looking.

Is anyone researching the CORNELIUS name in the Kinderhook area?
I have JOHN CORNELIUS (1758) who married CORNELIA JOHNSON (17??) on 31 May
1784 in Kinderhook, Columbia Co., NY.
I'm hoping that someone will recognise these 2, and give me some clue as to
who their parents were. Since John seems to have been born 'in America',
perhaps his parents may have come from Holland???
And perhaps his parents are in a cemetery in the Kinderhook area.
[John & Cornelia came to Canada during the Revolutionary war. Most of their
descendants remained in Canada.]
I eagerly await replies from anyone who can comment.
Thanks in advance.

Hi, Old Kinderhook Cemetary is located abt. 1/2 mile out of the town on Albany Ave (County Rte 21). Go west from the four corners of Kinderhook abt 1/2 mile you can't miss it. It is the butial site of Martin Van Buren 8th Pres of US.
Are you researching the Mulvey line also? I have a been researching my mulvey line in Auburn NY c.1888 My paternal Grandmother was Mary Jane Mulvey b.1888 in Auburn and her parents were John A. Mulvey and Mary Lyons.
Any connections to your line?
I am trying to track my family heritage. Unfortunately both my parents have passed away and I have no information about my family other than they are from the Hudson/Stockport area. My grandfather was Martin E. Dunspaugh, his wife was Elmira Friss (Dunspaugh). My grandfather Martin had several brothers, I believe their names were Fenton and Wilfred but am not sure. My grandmother had several brothers and sisters - the only name I know for sure is Conrad Friss, who was her brother. I think I remember hearing the names Elmina or Elvira or both? Does anyone have any information about the Dunspaugh or Friss families that they would be willing to share? My email address is rd3287(a)aol.com. Thank you so much!
HI, The Old Kinderhook Cemetary is on Albany ave in Kinderhook. Just turn west onto Albany Ave (Route 21) and go for about 1/2 mile from the 4 corners of town and you will find it. Many promenant people are buried there including Martin Van Buren the 8th pres of US.
I am also searching the Mulvey sirname. My Grandmother was Mary Jane Mulvey b.1888 in Auburn NY. Her father was John A. Mulvey of Auburn. I know very little else.Do you have any links to that part of the country?
Phillip RASE was baptized on 23 Jun 1771 at Nobletown [now Hillsdale],
Columbia Co., NY by Rev. Gideon BOSTWICK of the St. James Episcopal
Church of Great Barrington, Berkshire Co., MA.
Abraham RASE and Catherine [MNU] were listed as his parents.
Does anyone on the list have information about the ancestors of Abraham
RASE and/or the maiden name of his wife Catherine?
Rev. BOSTWICK also baptized other RASE children of Abraham and
Catherine, as well as other RASE parents--perhaps siblings of Abraham,
Thanks for looking.
I have skeletal information on Lapes in Columbia Co., NY. I start with Samuel Jeremiah Lape born Jan 28, 1816 married Nov 3, 1836 to Eve Rossman (Feb 19, 1819 - Jan 31,1884). This is my "thin" side of the family. Any help would be appreciated. I will also gladly share what information I do have.
Looking for someone with information on MARTIN STICKLES, aged 27 in the
1850 census (therefore b abt 1823) in the household of LUTHER JONES, Town
of Macedon, Wayne Co, NY. This looks like a clue to the identity of POLLY
STICKLES, wife of Luther's uncle, OLIVER M. JONES. Oliver married Polly
in Hillsdale, NY, ca 1838. They are in the 1850 Macedon census, on the
same page, as are Luther's parents, JOHN and CYNTHIA JONES.
The Albany Co. Hall of Records has an online search engine to an index of their Naturalization records. The index has been completed for 1821-1906, and is partially completed for 1907-1991 (letters A-Q). If you think that your immigrant relatives may have lived in Albany Co. even a short while (or you aren't certain), they may have become a citizen (naturalized) in the city of Albany even if they didn't live in the city. Naturalization usually took place 2-5 years after filling out a Declaration of Intent (which could have been filed in some other county). In rare cases, both were filed the same day.
Search Our Database (at bottom)
The index headings will be as follows:
Last Name First Name Nation of Origin Residence in the U.S. Date Petition Number Book Page
I talked to the Albany Co. Hall of Records today to get a clarification of their service and the kind of information that was in their records.
The type of registers used and the information recorded varied with the time period. The earliest records (starting with the 1821) don't have much information, but will at least have the signature of the person (perhaps only an X which was their "mark"). At some later point, Naturalizations and Declarations of Intent were recorded in separate registers in which each record was on a single line two pages wide (I don't know when this began). There was no personal signature. The information is in different columns such as name, place of birth (usually only the country, but sometimes the county or province was included), the age of the person at the time of filing, the port from which they sailed, the person's residence or intended residence, date of filing, a witness, a judge's name and possibly a fee.
In the Naturalization register, it also tells the place where the Declaration was filed. This would be useful for finding the Declaration of the person if they didn't file it in Albany.
In the 20th century, the information for both events was entered into a single book. This may have been because most of the information was duplicated.
For a $14 per hour fee, the Albany Co. Hall of Records will send you photocopies of the pages of both kinds of records. If you have several people that interest you, they will send them all for the same fee (which is a fee based on the time spent, with a $14 minimum). This can be a real bargain if you have several people that interest you, or it can be expensive for a single record.
To get naturalization and declaration records, you must fill out the form provided on their website. You can copy and paste their Research Request Form (link found on the opening screen) into a word processor. I removed the header information, adjusted the margins, and it fit onto a single page.
Good luck finding those ancestors.
