Jan Pieterse and the Schenectady Raid - 1690
Posted by: Jon von Briesen (ID *****5702) Date: January 06, 2009 at 18:45:58

Google books has the directory of members of Society of Colonial Wars in America, Dist. of Columbia Chapter, for 1897. One member has Jan Pieterse [Mebee, etc.] as his qualifying ancestor. Jan is said to have successfully defended his stone house, in Schenectady, during the 1690 raid by French and Indian warriors. I cannot find any comfirmation of this in online accts. of the raid. I have emailed the NY chap. of SCWA; as, the DC chapter has no web presence. I assume that records of evidences submitted by applicants might have been retained on file.

Anyone know of this story? Any SCWA members in the clan?

I descend from Jan's bro., Caspar.
