NORTHERN NEW YORK
Genealogical and family history of northern New York: a record of the achievements of her people and the making of a commonwealth and the founding of a nation.

The name of Pardee (or Pardy, as many of the family came to spell it) has never been very common in America, but has included many prominent and useful citizens. Most of them now living in this country are of French descent, and the name was formerly almost universally spelled Pardee, afterwards Americanized to Pardy.
