Some years ago when I was researching my Patterson/Pattisons of Roxbury, Delaware,
NY, a researcher concerning the reason for our ancestor, Michael Pattison, coming to
Delaware County. If I remember correctly, many Scots-Irish came during the
Revolutionary War to fight and stayed with Dutch families in Ulster County.
Following the war, they were given land in Delaware County - especially Middletown.
Michael and his Dutch wife, Catherine Osterhoudt moved at some time to Roxbury.
(Although it's not proven that Michael was in the Revolutionary war, the idea still
applies to others.)
So, if you have a Scots-Irish ancester who came to America in the late 1700s and
subsequently married a Dutch wife, this my be your situation.
