  • Notes 
    • BIRTH:
      1. From the book "Compendium of Early Mohawk Valley Families," by Maryly B. Penrose, v. 1, p. 281, Birth/Baptism:
      "Frederick, Jacob and Maria/Maragrita (Young):
      Willem, b. 1777, bapt. 16 Apr 1777 (DRC:42) Sponsors: Willem Yong and Rachel Yong.
      Eva, b. 4 Apr 1782, bapt. 12 May 1782 (DRC: 62) Sponsors: Peter Fredk. and Alida Fredk.
      Maragriet, b. 12 Jan 1785, bapt. ? Feb 1785 (DRC:71) sponsors: Jacob Bossert and Maragrita Bosserd.
      Lodowyk, b. 23 May 1791, bapt. 26 Jun 1791, bapt. 26 Jun 1791 (DRC:98) Sponsors: Hendrick Severs and his wife.

      2. The booklet on the Frederick family by Mrs. Alida Reed of Gloversville, NY, 1957 (she died Dec 1966) with copies at the Montgomery Co., NY, Archives and a microfilmed copy on FHL film 1312457, item 4). Alida descends through Hans Jacob Frederick and Margaret Young and their son George:
      "Margaret, bp. 12 Jan 1785. Sp. Jacob Bosset and his wife, Margaret Bossart, md. John Guttermut (Goodemote). Children:
      Jacob, b. 7 aug 1804. Sp. Jacob Frederick and Margaret Young (grandparents). Jacob is the only child as far as we can find, and was mentioned int he Will of Jacob Frederick, who sponsored him."

      3. Montgomery County, NY, Archives 19 Sep 2007 visit: Mentioned in the book "Abstracts of Wills of Montgomery County, 1787 - 1831": "Frederich[k], Jacob, of Johnstown, will dated 1-13-1815; probated 5-24-1821. Mentions, - sons Lodowick and Phillip; grandson Jacob Goodemoot. Administratrix appointed, Margaret Frederick. Witnesses: Benjamin Rowland, David I. and Elizabeth Conn."

      BIRTH:
      1. The actual birth place is unknown. Both Jacob Frederick and Margaret Young were of Warrensbush (now Florida Township) in Montgomery Co. They both did eventually end up in Johnstown, which is about 10 miles max from Mill Point and north across the Mohawk River. When they moved is not known except that they did buy land there at Keck Center in 1792. They may have been paying quit-rent on the property before then since it was about the early 1790 when many of the landowners were finally selling the quit-rented land. Alida Reed in her booklet already referenced elsewhere in these note indicates she believes they moved there shortly after the birth of their first child Peter. She is confident that it may have been no later than when Margaret was born in 1785 because the sponsors at Margaret's birth were Jacob Bossert and his wife Margaret. She says, "In the geneology of the Bossart family (sometimes spelled Boshart and Bushart) we find the first of that family did live in the section of Johnstown that leads to Fonda. So they were probably neighbors." I currently use "of Warrensbush."

      CHRISTENING:
