I am looking for information about Christian Dockstader of Palatine, NY, who was married to Catrina Nellis.
Christian had a daughter, Magdelena Dockstader who married a John Backus in 1772. They had four children, one of whom was Christian Backus who was born March 21, 1786. I think that Christian might be my great-great-great grandfather. I need information that would tell who the children of Magdelena Dockstader and Christian Backus were. I would like to know if John C. Backus, born around 1826 in Livingston County, NY (possibly in the town of Leicester) was their son. He is my great-great-grandfather.
