6.HENRIK6 TURCK (BENJAMIN5, JOHANNES4, JACOBUS3, PAULUSJACOBSZEN2, JACOB1) was born 1756 in Kingston, Ulster County, New York, and died March 12, 1833 in Lapeer, New York.He married JENNEKE (JANNETIE) BRINK. Notes for HENRIK TURCK: Henry signed the Articles of Association at Kingston in 1775. From Pension Record Nr. R20203 on file at the Nathionla Archives, Washington, D.C., we find that he served with the First Ulster Co., N.Y. Militia having enlistes as a Private and assigned to Capt. Hendrick Schoonmaker's Company of Col. Sniders Regiment.On December 5, 1828 he submitted a claim for eight ollars pursuant to an Act of Congress.In this claim he indetified himself as a resident of Kortrigh, Delaware Co., N.Y. and stated he was not on the Pension Lists of the United States at the time. A deposition his brother Benjamin made to support this claim is shown here as a way to show what military service Henry might have performed. STATE OF NEW YORK, DELAWARE COUNTY: Benjamin Turck of Roxbury into said county being duly sworn deposeth and saith, that he the said deponent is a brother of Henry Turck of Kortright and known of his serving in the Revolutionary War as a soldie in said war, in the year 1776 and that he enlisted as a minute man at that time that he the said deponent confident of his brother Henry Turck's serving in different times and places off and on for the space of six years next thereafter enlisting, that altho the said deponedt being a younger brother, he has not the positive knowledge of the saide Herny Turck's unceasing service- that at one time he knows of his lying at Ft. Montgomer for the space of two months.Just previous to its having been taken by the British that at another time this deponent recollects of his brother come home at his fathers house sick and that he remained home in consequence of his illness for three or four wekks; and them left home again for the service, but at what place he does not know - - that he recollects of his brother taking Hyn... out of Col. Butler's Raugers prisoner and having him confined in Kingston Jail.This was nearly the close of his service. Further this deponent saith not__. Sworn to & subscribeds/s Benjamin Turck this 8 Sept. 1828 befor me (signature illegile) J.P. Henry Turck is shown in History of Delaware Co. as having buil a mill on Betty's Brook, Kortright Township, and was a prominent member of a Society of Christians in the early 1800's. On November 5, 1806 Hendrick Turck and his wife Catherine signed a Mortgage for $204.10 to Peter R. Livingston of New York, N.Y.This was for 199 acres, described in deed as: "all those two several lots of land at Roxbury, Delaware Co., Lot 3 and 4 (excepting 174 acres previouls sold or retained by Livingston) "Later described as Lots Nr. 3 and 4 in Lot Nr. 42 of the Great of Hardenbugh Patent. On December 4, 1834, John L. More, and agent for Peter R. LIvingston of Rhinebeck Dutchess Co., N.Y., certified that the Mortgage ($204.10) was "redeemed, paid off, satisfied and discharged" on that date.As Henry had died previous to this redemption it is not clear who paid off this mortgage. On January 17, 1807, Hendrick and Catherine Turck sold to Robert More of Roxbury for $140.oo, 2 parcels of land, on Lots 3 and 4 of the Stamford Purchase, totaling 55 acres.(This was adjacent to property Robert More had purchased from Peter R. Livingston at an earlier date) and left 144 acres in Henry and Catherine's possession. On March 17, 1825, Henry and Catherine Turck sold their remaining porperty (143.5 acres, MOL) to James MOre for the sum of five hundred dollars. From these deeds we can see that after march 12, 1825, Hendrick and Catherine no longer had property at Roxbury.(Original purchase - 199 acres less 55 acres to Robert More on January 17, 1807 and 143.5 acres to James More on March 17, 1825, totaling 198.5 acres more or less) As the last deed dated March 17. 1825 had both Henry Turck and Catherine (her X mark) Turck signatures, it would indicate she was still alive at that time. As henry is bur. at Lapeer, where his son Pilip was residing, we can only be sure he either moved there or was visiting Philip when he died in 1833.
