Hendrick6 BURGHARDT/BURGET, Kortright, Delaware Co., NY, 1790-1800
Posted by: Milbrey Burgett (ID *****9781) Date: May 20, 2002 at 12:51:53
  of 785

The names of brothers Hendrick6 Burghardt, as well as my direct ancestor, Jehoiakim6 Burghardt, appear as Heads of Households in both the 1790 Federal Census records for Kortright, Montgomery Co., NY and the 1800 Federal Census records for Kortright, Delaware Co., NY [Note: It was the same place, but the county boundaries had changed between 1790 and 1800].

For some time, I have been trying to determine the names of individual family members of Hendrick BURGHARDT of Kortright [now Delaware Co.], NY and to learn something about other descendants.

SOURCE: 1800 Federal Census Records for Kortright, Delware Co., NY

Data for Hendrick6 is as follows:

1 male 26-45 [b. 1755-1774] [Hendrick6]
1 female >45 [b. bef 1755]
[probably his wife, Lydia]
* 1 male 16-26 [b. 1774-1784] [probably Conrad]
1 male 16-26 [b. 1784-1790]
1 female 16-26 [b. 1774-1784] [probably Lydia]
1 female 10-16 [b. 1784-1790] [probably Priscilla]
1 male <10 [b. 1790-1800]

SOURCE: 'Remarkable Records of Rev. Gideon Bostwick 1770-1793, Great Barrington, MA,' Transcribed and Indexed by Arthur C. M. Kelly, Kinship, Rhinebeck, NY, 1998.

Rev. Gideon Bostwick was the itinerant, circuit-riding Minister of St. James Episcopal Church of Great Barrington, Berkshire Co., MA. He kept records of his baptisms, marriages, and burials in Great Barrington and the surrounding areas in MA, as well as NY, VT, and CT from June 17, 1770 to May 30, 1793, the year of his death.

When names from this source were compared with the sparse data from the above 1800 Federal Census for Kortright, Delaware Co., NY, the names of the wife of Hendrick6 as Lydia [maiden name unknown] and three of their five
children emerged as follows:

Coonrodt [# 937--bp. 19 Jul 1779],
Lydia [#1340--bp. 1 Jan 1783],
Priscilla [#1474--bp. 3 Aug 1784].

All three were baptized at Nobletown [now Hillsdale], Albany Co. [now Columbia Co.], NY, which is located over the MA/NY state line just to the West of Great Barrington, Berkshire Co., MA.

In trying to account for the other two children [both sons], it seems likely that one son had probably died [and may not have been baptized], and the other had not been born by 1793.

The parents of brothers Hendrick6 BURGHARDT and Jehoiakim6 BURGHARDT, Sr. were Conrad5 BURGHARDT and Judith VAN VALKENBURG. Conrad5 was a son of Hendrick4 Burghardt of the Great Barrington, Berkshire Co., MA area and Eva VAN VALKENBURG.

The names of Conrad, Hendrick, and Jehoiakim were traditional in the early BURGHARDT/BURGET family.

The older brother Jehoiakim6 was undoubtedly named after his maternal grandfather, Jochem Van Valkenburg; and Hendrick6 was undoubtedly named after his paternal grandfather Hendrick4 Burghardt

The oldest sons of both Jehoiakim6 and Henrich6 were both named Conrad, undoubtedly after their paternal grandfather in-common, Conrad5 Burghardt.

[Note: These records were discovered, arranged and classified in 1895, 1896, 1897, and 1898.]

Jehoiakim6 Borghordt, Sr. served in the Ninth Regiment of the Albany County Militia under Colonel Peter Van Ness and Major Jacob Ford during the Revolutionary War. His brothers, Hennerey6 [Hendrick] and Lambert6, also served in the same Regiment. Another brother, Milburry6, served in The
Line--Fourth Regiment under Colonels James Holmes and Henry B. Livingston.

Brother-in-law, Lemuel Cleveland, who m. his sister, Margaret6 also served, as did his brother-in-law, Abijah Ward, who m. his sister, Rachel6, a twin of his brother, Lambert. Abijah participated in the Sullivan expedition into Canada.
