I am looking for documentation that proves that Ferdy I (the first VS to inhabit New Netherland, born about 1635) was a Lt. in the Gravesend, NY (ie Long Island) milita.
Does anyone have access to the following volumes to look this up for me?I am trying to avoid schlepping to Ft. Wayne for this.
Colonial records of NY, register of the NYS of Colonial Dames of America, pg. 403.
Calendar of NY colonial commissions, 1680-1770; abstracted by the late Edmund B. O'Callaghan
I have looked at New York Colonial muster rolls, 1664-1775, report of the state historian of the State of NY, but only found his SON, Ferdy II.
Naturally, I'd be glad to pay photocopying and mail fees.TIA!
