. Hi Dick, I just today saw your post. It seems that we came from the same branch of the same tree. My 6th g-grandfather Pierre Parmentier b 1623 in France came to this country in 1663 to the same area, aboard the "Spotted Cow" with wife and nine year old son Michael Pieterse Parmentier b in France in 1654. His son Pieter Michael Parmentier b 1680 in Bushik, NY. It seems he was the one that began the Palmatier spelling. I know there are many Parmentiers in Belgium, I've found them on the web.Like you all of my family are Palmatiers.This may be the English version. I have LOTS & LOTS of info on this family. I can't begin to relay it all but will be glad to share and ans any questions I can. I have another bit of info I believe will be helpful. I am the daughter of Edgar Moses Palmatier a direct decendant of the above, he had a brother Frederick D. (my uncle) who had a daughter Jenet Adams Palmatier (my 1st cousin) who is a member of the DAR, ID No 112936. I am also thru the Palmatier line, but Jenet is a member thru her mothers line, Clara Fellows b 1864. She is decendant of 1st, Randolph Knight Fellows 1809-1910. 2nd, James Harlow Fellows 1809-1884. 3rd, James Fellows 1771-1847. 4th, Obel Fellows 1749-1833.5th Obel Fellows 1742-1809 Served as Private in Capt. John Stevens'Co, Col «harles Burrall's regiment, Conn Troops. He was b in Conn.
I hope this is helpful and I'm glad to have found you.If you like you can E-mail. Ruthy@gate.net Ruth Palmatier McClain
