Palatines of Olde Ulster
NEW Electronic version
A Reprint of 8 articles from Olde Ulster Magazine (c1905-1914) on this early group of Hudson Valley settlers to whom we owe so much. Not just our names, such as Myer, Dederick, Overbaugh -- but our work ethic and belief in freedom from oppression. These early pioneers were sturdy, sensible people. It amazing how many genealogists from all over the country can trace their roots back here through them! Besides the chapters on the Palatines who settled on both side of the Hudson near Saugerties, there is a chapter on the Palatines of Newburgh and one from the Journal of Conrad Weiser - the trusted Indian negotiator during the French and Indian War who eventually settled in the Dutch region of Pennsylvania. New Edition includes the list of names of the settlers of both East and West Camp, compiled for the Saugerties Historical Society's Palatine Monument.
