Lineage of the Christian Meyer Family.

Compiled by Theodore B. Meyers

    CHRISTIAN MEYER and wife came to America with the Palatine emigration in 1710, arriving in New York with Governor Robert Hunter June 24th of that year. The Palatines remained there during the summer and in the autumn were transported by the colonial authorities to West Camp and East Camp (Germantown) New York, in furtherance of a scheme to produce naval stores for the British government in repayment of the cost of their passage. The exact date of their arrival at West Camp is not known but Governor Hunter reported to the Board of Trade in London on October 3rd of that year the fact that he had bought 6,000 acres of land of Robert Livingston on the east side of Hudson and the Fullerton tract of eight hundred acres on the west side and had just settled the first party of the colonists there. When the Livingston tract was purchased it was not known by the colonial authorities that there was no depth of water off the eastern shore, and the west side was bought where the channel ran close to the bank. The most of the colon-

ists were settled on the eastern shore while many were located upon the western where the headquarters were. On November 14th, 1710, the governor reported "the Palatines have already built themselves comfortable huts and are now imployed in clearing up the ground."
    On this west side were three villages of the colony: Elizabeth Town, Newtown and Georgetown. The tract on the west side was a mile in length with Newtown in the centre. This was about the vicinity of the present West Camp railroad station. Somewhere here Christian Meyer built one of these rude dwellings for himself and his newly made wife.
    The naval stores project was a failure. On September 13th, 1712, it was definitely abandoned and the colonists were told to shift for themselves.
    The place of residence of Christian Meyer for the next few years is not definitely known. Governor Hunter and his wife had advanced to the Palatine project about $130,000. To secure part of this he had taken in his own name the title to the Fullerton tract on the west side of the river. There had been a change of administration in England and the new government refused to re-imburse Hunter. It claimed this tract as Crown lands. The title being in dispute the colonists sought homes, for the most part, a mile farther west upon the Kingston Commons at what was known as Katsbaan. How long Christian Meyer lived at West Camp, or if he was in Katsbaan cannot now be told. He next appears as the purchaser of the farm at Churchland, just west of the present village of Saugerties, on February 21st, 1724. Here he lived and died.

    Christian Meyer and his wife were from Wolferlingen, a village about six miles northeast from Coblenz in the Palatinate, on the west side of the Rhine. With them came Johan Jurge (George) Overbagh, Johan Pieter Overbagh, Peter Overbagh, Jurry (George) Snyder, John William Snyder and their families. Tradition has it that Christian Meyer was born near the river Rhine and had no intention of coming to America, but was a young man at the sailing of the Palatines and went on board ship to bid good-bye to Miss Anna Gertrude Theunyes, the step-daughter of George Overbagh, and was so long over the farewells that he found the vessel under full sail and the captain refused to turn back and put him ashore. During the voyage he and Miss Theunyes were married by the Reverend Joshua Kocherthal, the leader of the exodus, and thus they began their married life in the New World.
    The signature of Christian Meyer appears in the oath of abjuration and allegiance described in OLDE ULSTER in Vol. I, page 298. To the farm on the Kings Highway at Churchland he added a large tract which became the farms of his several sons, and built a mill upon the "Muddah kill," which ran across it. In 1728 he is named as one of the freeholders of Kingston; was an elder of the Katsbaan Church in 1730, in which year its records begin, and held that office repeatedly; was one of the builders of the stone church there in 1732 and his initials are still plainly to be seen on a stone in its walls "C. M. 1732." He was a member of Captain John Persen's Company of Foot in

the militia of the Corporation of Kingston in 1738; and in the census of slaves April 3rd, 1775, is listed as master of three, "Cuff, Bet and Jud." In June, 1775, he was a signer of the Articles of Association and was an ardent Whig, staunch patriot and supporter of the Revolutionary cause to which he contributed twenty-five of his sons and grandsons as soldiers. Such a record has not its equal.
    His will was executed March 15th, 1773, and proved May 8th, 1783. It bequeaths to his sons Willem, Johannis, Stephanus, Benjamin, Petrus and Tobias; the children of his son Christian, deceased; the heirs of his daughters Marytje, Christina and Catrina, deceased, and his daughter Geertje. It also liberates and provides for his old slave, Cuff, during his life.*

Lineage of the Christian Meyer Family

Annatje d. 16 May, 1813. Christian is buried in the old cemetery north of Saxton, N. Y. His home was on the line between Ulster and Greene counties along the road between Saxton and Kiskatom. At the battle of Saratoga he served under General Gates as an ambulance driver, using his own horse and wagon, in which he and his brother Johannes had driven to Saratoga. The box of this wagon is shown among the Revolutionary relics preserved in the old Senate House at Kingston. In 1779 he was Second Lieutenant of Captain David Abeel's Company, Eleventh Regiment Albany Militia. In 1781 he served in Lieutenant Tobias Meyer's detachment, First Regiment Ulster County Militia. He was an elder in Katsbaan church in 1786. He was a man of strong individuality and many stories of him were current for generations. One related to his marriage: Captain Wynkoop disapproved of his attentions to his daughter, Annatje, and he was forbidden the house. One Sunday when the captain and his family were at Katsbaan at church, and Annatje and Cuff, the slave, were at home, the captain returned to find Cuff alone. All Cuff could tell was that Christian had ridden in with a black horse and Annatje rode away with him a-pillion. Some time in the afternoon they returned. The irate captain met them but Christian waved before the captain's face a marriage certificate with the query "Op mijn donder wat doen gij nu?" (What will you do now?). They had been the twelve miles to Kingston, and back, in the interval. Another was that when the news came one morning that the militia were going to Saratoga the father of Christian had told his boys to cut the corn that day.

Flatbush, Ulster County, N. Y., engaged in farming. In July, 1827, he migrated to Cayuga county, N. Y., and settled in the then township of Brutus on fifty acres of forest land purchased the previous October of James B. Clarke, conveying his family and effects by team and wagon to this wilderness home, a small tract having been cleared of timber and a log cabin built by the previous owner; a few scattering pioneers had preceded them in settlement of this region; in five years he had a considerable portion cleared and under cultivation. In 1833 he built a frame dwelling gradually making improvements and adding by purchase, until he possessed a farm of 250 acres. Suffering from ill health in 1863 he sold this property and purchased a home in Port Byron village, where he died. His widow occupied the village home for six years after his death, and lived with her son during her remaining years. She retained her physical strength and mental vigor in a remarkable degree to her ninety-fifth year. Her tales of frontier life and happenings early in the century were many and entertaining. She was the last survivor of the early pioneers in that region.
    The longevity of her family was remarkable, the united ages of herself and three sisters being 351 years, 2 months and 18 days. Children:

Johannes Myer was usually called Johannes Myer, Jr., and was a signer of the Articles of Association in 1775 and was a soldier of the Revolution, serving in the regiment of his father-in-law. He was an elder in the church in Katsbaan, and resided west of the village of Saugerties along the present West Shore Railroad on the farm known as the "Wells Myer farm," which is still in the possession of his descendants. Here he long kept an inn, and among his frequent guests was Aaron Burr, with whom he had become acquainted while in the military service, and who took great pleasure in lodging with him on his joumeys by land to Albany along the "Old Kings Road." He was known as "Oom Hans," and he had, in after years, many tales to tell of nights spent with Colonel Burr exchanging stories around the open fireplace after they had lighted their pipes. He was a fifer at the battle of Saratoga. Pay abstracts preserved in the War Department at Washington show records of his services in 1779 and 1780. Children:
