Referencing Richard Bouvia's message on the book, "Early Families of Schoharie
What time period does this book consider as, "Early Settlers"? I believe that
Joseph McDonald, and possibly wife, Ann or Anna, were in Schohaire in the time
period of 1800 to 1808. Was the book only a select listing of local business
people, or was it truly a book of early settlers?
As I recall, and that may be faulty, wasn't Schoharie formed in 1795 from part
of Albany County? Would the early settlers listed in the book then be made up
mostly of Albany families that really never moved from their homes, but
suddenly by default became the earliest settlers of a new county?
Does someone on the Schoharie list have the book, or access to it? Are their
Scottish families listed, specifically Joseph McDonald and/or other McDonalds?
