WHAT IS KNOWN ABOUT HARMONUS DUMOND AND JENNENKE BRINK?

Harmonus Dumond and Jennenke Brink had long lines of noteworthy ancestors. In fact, they share some of the same Dumond ancestry, and were second cousins. Jennenke's mother was Rachel Dumond, daughter of Walran Dumond, brother of Jan Baptist Dumond, father of Igneas Dumond (who, with Catharina Schuyler were parents of Harmonus).

Portraits of Harmonus's Schuyler and Rutgers grandparents give but a hint of his well established family tree. The portrait of his mother, Catharina Schuyler Dumond (1694-1747), is in the Henry Francis duPont Winterthur Museum, Winterthur, DE, while the portraits of his grandparents, David and Elsje (Rutgers) Schuyler are in the Albany Institute of History and Art, in Albany, New York (where you can also see the stained glass window from the old Dutch Reformed Church of Albany, dedicated to Elsje's father, Harmen Rutgers (Rutger Jacobsen)).

David D. Schuyler

David Davidse  was born in Albany in 1669. He was the third son of the eight children born to New Netherland pioneers David Pieterse  and Catharina Verplanck  Schuyler.

He grew up in his father's house on Market Street near the north gate of the Albany stockade. One of the leading Albany fur traders and landholders, David's father died in 1690 when the young man was twenty-years-old.

In 1694, he married Elsie Rutgers, the daughter of a prominent Manhattan merchant. The couple had six children all of whom were baptized in the Albany Dutch church where both parents were members.Like other seventeenth-century Albany Schuylers, David Davidse built his fortune in the fur trade  and was a prominent Albany merchant residing in the first ward. His status was recognized when he was elected assistant alderman in 1697. On behalf of the Albany government, several times he carried documents to the governor in New York. In 1699, he was elected first ward alderman and served for many years. He was an active council member and often was sent into the Indian country and to Canada on city business.

In 1705, he was appointed sheriff of Albany city and county. He served for a year and he was appointed mayor of Albany in 1706. During his mayoralty, Albany began to develop its landed interests at Schaghticoke.Superceded as mayor by Robert Livingston, Jr., David Schuyler was elected alderman for the first ward in 1710. He was re-elected for the last time in September 1715.

Perhaps because of the early death of his father and a relatively short life-span of his own, this third son was unlike other prominent Schuyler family members in that he did not acquire extensive investment lands. However, he would have been a partner in the Kaydaderosseras patent had it been confirmed before his untimely death.

David Davidse Schuyler died on December 16, 1715. He was forty-six years old.

Elsje Rutgers Schuyler Vas

Elsje Rutgers  was born on Manhattan during the early 1670s. she was the daughter of Harmen and Catharina De Hooges Rutgers.

On January 1, 1694 she married David D. Schuyler in the Albany Dutch church. At least six of her children were baptized there between 1695 and 1715. Like her husband, she was a prominent church member and a frequent baptism sponsor.

David D. Schuyler died in 1715 at age forty-six - leaving her with several small children.

In 1722, she married Reverend Petrus Vas in the New York City Dutch Church. Gerardus Duyckinck painted her portrait the next year.

She was still alive in 1752.

THE BRINK FAMILY

The Brink family is numerous in the Netherlands. The name is in various

forms as van den Brink (of the Brink): van Brink (of Brink); Ten Brink(The

Brink)Brinkhuis (Brink house); Brinkhorst (Brink Grove);Brikenberg(Mount Brink);

Brinerhoff (a paved square; Dolderbrink (Valley Brink).

The word Brink means "park, square, or village green".

Thes are records showing that Brinks lived in Gelderland province,Holland,

and were Burgomasters from 1515 thru 1683. Others were mentioned in 1437.

In 1503 another Lambert Brinck was master of the Sanct Crusis Guild.

The family in America (except those who have come since 1846,) are descended

from Lambert Huybertsen (Brink) who arrived in New Amsterdam in December

1659 with the Geloove(Faith). The entry upon the ship's books is "Lambert

Huybertsen from Wageningen, wife with 2 children." Also a son, Cornelius was

born at sea.Wageningen is a town on the right bank of the Rhine in Gelderland.

Lambert Huybertsen, son of Huybert Lambertse, while still in the Netherlands

married Hendrickje Cornelisse. After coming to New Amsterdam they went to

Esopus. In 1662 he leased for 5 years certain lands in Hurley, and at the

expiration of the lease in 1667, he purchased these and other parcels in

Marbletown. His name appears frequently in the records of Schout's court

in various capacities and he witnessed several Indian treaties. His wife

and three children were captured by the Indians, June 7, 1663, and were

captives for three months.

There were many skirmishes with the Indains and there were 2 Esopus Wars

with the Indians. Fried tells of the massacre at the Esopus on June 7, 1663.

"The marauders set fire to the south side of Wildwyck there being a southerly

wind at the time. When the flames had reached their height, the wind veered

and blew in from the west. Had this wind shift not occurred, the flames

would have been much more destructive. Meanwhile, the Indians had been

removing women and children outside the gates and guarding them as prisoners."

Hurley was burned to the ground. Besides 3 men killed, a man and 34 women

and children were captured, and the 4 Brinks were among them. In Wildwyck

12 houses were burned and besides those killed and injured 10 people were

taken prisoners.

According Fried, during the time these people were captives of the Indians,

a great search was made for the Indians who held them captive. Several

attempts were made to find their camp, or fort, but they hid themselves

well, moving on into the woods. Finally, they came on to their camp,

surprising the Indians and were able to free the prisoners on Sept.5th,

arriving home on Sept.7th.

When the English took over New Netherland, they sent soldiers to help keep

peace with the Indians. The soldiers became as big a problem as the Indians.

But before the decade was up,"the soldiers begin to be assimilated into

town life, Eventually, when the garrison is disbanded at the end of 5 years

of peace that followed the 2nd Esopus war, they are granted land at

Marbletown".

Lambert Huybertsen served as a soldier in Capt. Pawlin's Company in 1670.

His name is also signed as witness twice to the renewals of the celebrated

Indian treaty negotiated in 1665 by Gov. Nicholls. He had charge, for some

time, of the lands in the Esopus of Director Peter Stuyvesant, and at one

time leased one of his farms.

"On April 27th, 1689, he "makes over" to his sons Huybert and Peter 324

acres of land in "Horley" and on the 9th of March, 1702, he conveys to

Cornelis Cool, his son-in-law 63 acres of land at "Horley along the Esopus."

On the 12th of Feb., 1696, Lambert Huybertsen (Brink) made and executed

his last will and testement, which will was proved on the 11th of Apr.

1702. In which will he bequeaths to his youngest son Pieter'two horses

and also, that his house in which he lives shall be finished in garret,

floor, doors, windows, etc. out of my estate.`"

"To his other 2 sons Huybert and Cornelis, and to Cornelis Cool, the

husband of his daughter Jannetje, and to Arien Gerretsen, the husband of

his daughter Lysbet, he gives each one-fifth part of his whole estate.

Lysbet is to have one-fifth part of the land contiguous to that of her

husband and in consideration of "its fertility" his other 4 heirs shall

`have and enjoy ownership of my house, barn, etc. without paying therefor

anything to sid Arien Gerretsen, but they shall divide in equal shares

all other movable estate among themselves!" He also desires that his

son-in-law Cornelis Cool "shall have in 1 piece 2 shares of land occupied

by me, to wit, the 1 now made over to him and the other bought by him

from mu son, Lammert". The will is written in Dutch from which the

above is translated.

As was told on the previous page, the garrison of soldiers was disbanded.

They were given agricultural land and house lots in the village of Marbleton

for their service and they began the slow process of assimilation into the

community life.

On Sept. 11 1669, a special commission was appointed to settle various

affairs at Esopus and the 2 new villages. 6 commissioners were appointed.

One of the primary tasks was to make certain political arrangements for

Kingston, Hurley and Marbleton. A chief Magistrate for Marbleton & Hurley

was appointed. 4 overseers were appointed under him. Those for Marbleton

were Fredrick Hussey and John Biggs, etc.

This is a way of introducing our ancestor, Lt. John Biggs, who came to

Ulster County as a soldier.

NEW YORK HISTORICAL MANUSCRIPTS: ENGLISH, Vol.XXII, ed. Peter Christoph, Genealogical Pub. Co., 1980, p.42, gives an account of Captain Broadhead entering Walran du Mont's home on New Years Eve, when Walran and his wife were entertaining friends, and abusing Walran, throwing beer in the face of one of the women there, and taking her to jail. In September, 1664, the British took possession of New Netherlands, by a show of force, with a number of warships and 450 soldiers. Richard Nicolls was appointed Governor. After capitulation Nicolls sent troops to Fort Orange, which was re-named, Albany, and Wildwyck, which was re-named, Kingston. A company of soldiers was left at Kingston under the command of Capt. Daniel Broadhead. A series of events, connected with Broadhead and his troops occurred between 1664 and 1667, when the burgers, including Wallerand Dumond took up arms in protest. Broadhead declared that what they did constituted a mutiny. This was not resolved until 1669, when a

new Governor, Lovelace appointed a commission to settle affairs in the area.

** It appears that two of my [RAR] ancestors, one from each line were acquainted approximately 200 years before my mother and father met and tied these two lines together. The Dumonds and Rowes were from quite different backgrounds. The Dumonds had been in America since 1657 and were well established in a variety of businesses, and were quite substantial land, and slave owners. And they had intermarried with some of the prominent families. Nicholas Rowe, on-the-other-hand, arrived with the other Paletine immigrants in 1710, in a failed tar-making project, but somehow acquired enough capital to purchase land in Dutchess and Columbia counties, and was able to establish himself and his descendants as respectable landowners in that area. My Rowe line moved to Green Co. about 1790, and then to Delaware Co. in the 1850s. My father finally moved from Downsville to Margaretville about 1922 where he met my mother, the Dumond descendant.

THE BRINK FAMILY The Brink family is numerous in the Netherlands. The name is in various forms as van den Brink (of the Brink): van Brink (of Brink); Ten Brink(The Brink)

 

Brinkhuis (Brink house); Brinkhorst (Brink Grove);Brikenberg(Mount Brink);Brinerhoff (a paved square; Dolderbrink (Valley Brink). The word Brink means "park, square, or village green". These are records showing that Brinks lived in Gelderland province,Holland,and were Burgomasters from 1515 thru 1683. Others were mentioned in 1437. In 1503 another Lambert Brinck was master of the Sanct Crusis Guild. The family in America (except those who have come since 1846,) are descended from Lambert Huybertsen (Brink) who arrived in New Amsterdam in December 1659 with the Geloove(Faith). The entry upon the ship's books is "Lambert Huybertsen from Wageningen, wife with 2 children." Also a son, Cornelius was born at sea.Wageningen is a town on the right bank of the Rhine in Gelderland. Lambert Huybertsen, son of Huybert Lambertse, while still in the Netherlands married Hendrickje Cornelisse. After coming to New Amsterdam they went to Esopus. In 1662 he leased for 5 years certain lands in Hurley, and at the expiration of the lease in 1667, he purchased these and other parcels in Marbletown. His name appears frequently in the records of Schout's court in various capacities and he witnessed several Indian treaties. His wife and three children were captured by the Indians, June 7, 1663, and were captives for three months. There were many skirmishes with the Indains and there were 2 Esopus Wars with the Indians. Fried tells of the massacre at the Esopus on June 7, 1663. "The marauders set fire to the south side of Wildwyck there being a southerly wind at the time. When the flames had reached their height, the wind veered and blew in from the west. Had this wind shift not occurred, the flames would have been much more destructive. Meanwhile, the Indians had been removing women and children outside the gates and guarding them as prisoners."Hurley was burned to the ground. Besides 3 men killed, a man and 34 women and children were captured, and the 4 Brinks were among them. In Wildwyck 12 houses were burned and besides those killed and injured 10 people were taken prisoners. According Fried, during the time these people were captives of the Indians, a great search was made for the Indians who held them captive. Several attempts were made to find their camp, or fort, but they hid themselves well, moving on into the woods. Finally, they came on to their camp,surprising the Indians and were able to free the prisoners on Sept.5th, arriving home on Sept.7th. When the English took over New Netherland, they sent soldiers to help keep peace with the Indians. The soldiers became as big a problem as the Indians. But before the decade was up,"the soldiers begin to be assimilated into town life, Eventually, when the garrison is disbanded at the end of 5 years of peace that followed the 2nd Esopus war, they are granted land at Marbletown". Lambert Huybertsen served as a soldier in Capt. Pawlin's Company in 1670. His name is also signed as witness twice to the renewals of the celebrated Indian treaty negotiated in 1665 by Gov. Nicholls. He had charge, for some time, of the lands in the Esopus of Director Peter Stuyvesant, and at one time leased one of his farms." On April 27th, 1689, he "makes over" to his sons Huybert and Peter 324 acres of land in "Horley" and on the 9th of March, 1702, he conveys to Cornelis Cool, his son-in-law 63 acres of land at "Horley along the Esopus." On the 12th of Feb., 1696, Lambert Huybertsen (Brink) made and executed his last will and testement, which will was proved on the 11th of Apr.1702. In which will he bequeaths to his youngest son Pieter'two horses and also, that his house in which he lives shall be finished in garret,floor, doors, windows, etc. out of my estate.`" "To his other 2 sons Huybert and Cornelis, and to Cornelis Cool, the husband of his daughter Jannetje, and to Arien Gerretsen, the husband of his daughter Lysbet, he gives each one-fifth part of his whole estate. Lysbet is to have one-fifth part of the land contiguous to that of her husband and in consideration of "its fertility" his other 4 heirs shall have and enjoy ownership of my house, barn, etc. without paying therefor anything to sid Arien Gerretsen, but they shall divide in equal shares all other movable estate among themselves!"

ROELOFF SWARTWOUT Son of Toomys and Hendrickje Otsen Swartwout, Baptized June 11, 1634 Amsterdam, Holland. He came with his parents to Beverwych, N.Y. in 1652. In 1657 he married Eva Bratt de Hooges, widow of Anthony de Hooges and Daughter of Albert Andriessen Bratt and Barentse Van Rotmers Bratt. The Children were: Hendrickje born in 1659 Beverwyck, Thomas, born about 1660 in Beverwyck, Antoni, baptized in Wiltwyck Jan 8, 1662, Antoni, baptized in Wiltwyck May 1664, Cornelia, baptized in Kingston, April 10, 1669, Rachel, born in Kingston, April 10, 1669, Barnabus, baptized April 26, 1673, Eva, born in Hurley(Note: It was the custom that when a baptized baby died, the next one of that sex, born was given that same name), Eva Bratt Swartwout had 5 children by her first husband. She died in Hurley about 1689. "On April 15, 1660, the directors in Holland infromed Stuyvesant that one Roeloff Swarthout, who now comes over with some young men and farmers, to settle at the Esopus and engage in agriculture, has petitioned us here for the office of Sheriff at that place`." And they had granted the petition. R. Swartwout was the son of Tomas Swartwout of Fort Orange. Roeloff had left Ft. Orange and made a trip to the Netherlands and was about to return and settle at Esopus. On June 25, 1660 Stuyvesant wrote to the directors refusing to accept the appointment, but the directors refused to change the decision; Swartwout's commision was dated May 23, 1661 and he held the office until July 1664. A footnote says that R. Swartwout may have received the appointment because of his wife's influence-the widow of Anthony de Hooges, who had served as secretary of the colony of Rensselaerswyck. Besides being the first sheriff of his town "he was a member of Gov. Leisler's Council in 1689 and Justice of Ulster County 1689-90. (As recompence he was to have 1/2 of all civil fines, except those impossed by virtue of ordinances of taxation, 1/3 of all criminal fines, 1/2 the costs of summons,& such salary as may hereafter be granted him. Could take no presents, must take oath of office before the directors and council, the term of office was fixed at 4 years unless otherwise ordered by the directors. The militia was organized in 1662 and R. Swartwout was an under officer. He owned a farm and lived there the last half of his life in Hurley where he died in 1715. Hendrickje, daughter of Roeloff and Eva Bratt de Hooges Swartwout married in Hurley, province of New York, on March 16, 1679, to Huybert Lambertsen(Brink) of Wageningen in Gelderland, Holland, then living in Hurley.

"The Bible was donated to the Association by Mrs. Katherine Keener, principal of Hawthorne School No. 5, Fycke Lane, Teaneck, NJ.

"The cover of the Bible is wood covered with leather. There are heavy metal pieces on the corners and it is held with broken metal hinges. The pages are of parchment, 9x11 inches. It is much worn and discolored by smoke or snuff. Most of the printing is in Dutch but some titles are in English. Each chapter is started with an elaborate letter. Many of the names are spelled as we spell them but some are different. The pages are numbered on one side only, one number for each leaf.

"In a few places, two pages of explanations are in English type but Dutch language.

"The picture above is of the Dumond family record. It is found about in the center of the book. Harmonus Dumond was one of the first settlers of Middletown, then in Ulster County. He was shot by a colonial troop from Scoharie. Since he was armed, they supposed that he was a Tory, but he was not. He died three days later on the twenty-ninth of August, 1778.

WHAT IS KNOWN ABOUT THE DUMOND FAMILY IN MARGARETVILLE?    
 
Having learned the truth a few years ago about what really happened on August 26, 1778,  the slander of the good name of my third great-grandfather, Harmonus Dumond, grew deeper and deeper into my heart, until it forced me to act to make the truth known. So, welcome to a web site dedicated to presenting as accurate an account of the death of Harmonus Dumond as may be possible at this time!
 
      I recently received words of encouragement from the author of the book about Major Thomas Posey who commander of the troops that killed Harmonus: "There is no doubt in my mind that Harmonus Dumond was everything you portray him to be, and that is why I feel so strongly that your mission of vindication would best be served by publishing a full account of his life, focusing particularly on his role as a patriot whose contribution to the cause was to live in a dangerous area among citizens apparently leaning to the Crown, and providing the Revolutionary authorities with information about the Tories and Indians operating in that area. The activities of such patriotic informers have not been widely reported by historians, and your research provides you with a uique opportunity to help fill that void in our country's history. I would be most interested in reading the final product of your work." (John Thornton Posey, author of GENERAL THOMAS POSEY, SON OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION)

It will be seen, on the MURDER OF HARMONUS DUMOND page of this site, that although Mr. Posey and I may not agree in our interpretation of the facts in this case, we do agree that the other side of the story should be told.

Most published accounts of the killing of Harmonus Dumond are incomplete, inaccurate, or both, telling only one side, or only a portion of the story. Some, I believe, have deliberately distorted the facts for their own purposes, which are usually, intended to glorify their particular "hero" in this event, or, at least, not to cast doubt on his heroics.

One of the recent accounts, in WAR IN SCHOHARY, by Edward A. Hagan (Middleburgh, 1980) gives the account this way: "The 26th of August, returning from a hunting trip, Hermanus Dumond was killed and John Barrow wounded on the flats near present day Arkvile (sic) in Delaware County. They mistook a patrol of Schoharie Militia for men belonging to the Tory Walter Butler. Refusing an order to halt, they were shot in an attempt to escape." (p. 14)

The statement by Mr. Hagan that Dumond and Barrow mistook the "Schoharie Militia for men belonging to the Tory Walter Butler" is accurate, as far as it goes.  But it excludes the fact that the Militia group was under the leadership of a Ranger commander,  Thomas Posey.  And it appears that this organization deliberately presented themselves as Walter Butler's Tories. Hagan is wrong in stating that "John Barrow [was] wounded," and that they were shot, upon "refusing an order to halt."  Dumond and Barrow did "halt" when commanded to do so, it was only after they had been questioned, and threatened, that they would be taken to "Butler," whom they suspected was the Tory Walter Butler, that they tried to escapt.  It is doubtful that Dumond and Barrow had any knowledge of William Butler, who had recently taken command of the troops of which the Posey Rangers and Schoharie Mititia were a part.  Hagan's use of distorted "facts' is only one of the many such interpretations in the years since that fateful day in 1778.

In 1991 Doris Yaple-Geist published THE YAPLE FAMILY OF AMERICA.  Many Yaple family members descend from lines of two daughters of Harmonus Dumond.  Anna and Nellie Dumond, married Yaple brothers, and moved to what was to become Ithaca, New York after the Revolutionary War, to become founding mothers and fathers of that community. This book, like most, gets the story of the death of Harmonus wrong in at least two respects when it reports: "It was on an occasion like this [disturbances on the frontier] that Harmonus Dumond [in a footnote it records: 'The father of Anna and Nellie Dumond, future wives of Christian and Philip Yaple.'] was shot August 26, 1778. He had returned from Hurley with John Burrow to secure a piece of grain. Having accomplished their purpose, they set out again to return to Hurley, and when about a mile from Dumond's former residence, they fell in with the Schoharie Guard. These mistaking Dumond and his companion for Tories called upon them to halt, which they refused to do. The Guard then fired upon them, and mortally wounded Dumond. His companion escaped unhurt. The soldiers were filled with sorrow when they learned their fatal mistake, but it was too late. Dumond died three days later, the 29th of August 1778, in Simon Van Waggoner's Hotel and was buried nearby in the clothes in which he had been shot." (page 25)

Although the errors in this account may seem small, and insignificant, they will probably lead to the repetition in nearly every genealogical report of the descendants, and will be propounded indefinitely, if they are not corrected.

In the first place, it was not "grain" that Harmonus Dumond was transporting back to Hurley, it was household goods. In the second place, the soldiers that met Harmonus and John did not mistake them for Tories and call upon them to halt. The soldiers may have suspected that they were Tories, because they were conditioned to suspect anyone they met to be British sympathizers, but the suspition was equal on both sides, and as John Burrow (Barrow) stated in his affidavit, he and Harmonus were certain that the soldiers were Tories. Further, the soldiers did not call upon these two men to "halt" -- which they refused to do, and therefore were shot at. As stated previously, Harmonus and John did halt as they were confronted by the soldiers.  They were questioned, and taken into custody. As was also stated above, it was only after the soldiers threatened to take their captives to "Butler," that they tried to escape, and Harmonus was shot, and John successfully escaped, to tell their side of the story. The soldiers, with the exception of two, later identified as Markle (Merkel) brothers, who had lived in Pakatakan, and knew Harmonus, were not "filled with sorrow." In fact the soldiers, and especially their officers, tried to justify the killing, and one of them -- and I suspect it was the commanding officer, Major Thomas Posey, returned to the Van Waggonen (Van Waggoner) house, threatened the dying Harmonus with a tomahawk, questioned him (apparently to gain, or "plant" verbal evidence to justify the action of his troops), and stole Harmonus' shoes, hat, and buckles from his clothes.

The second, and most recent account, published one year after the Yaple book, GENERAL THOMAS POSEY, SON OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, by John Thornton Posey (who, incidentally, is the third great-grandson of Thomas Posey, as I, Robert A. Rowe, am the third great-grandson of Harmonus Dumond) is a biography of the commander of the troops which entered Pakatakan on August 26, and killed Harmonus Dumond.  I am grateful to John Thornton Posey for bringing to my attention, through this book, the fact that the account of this incident is included in Papers of George Washington in the Library of Congress.  Previous to reading this book I was aware of the account only in the Papers of Governor George Clinton, in the published format.  The great benefit of the George Washington Papers is that they contain photocopies of the original hand-written letters, and are available on the internet, where they can be viewed and printed.  There are a few, slight, differences between the "original" hand-written records and the published version in the Clinton papers, but it appears that one or the other were the original and the other set was copied.

On this first page of this web site you will be able to read the various accounts in "History" books concerning this incident. On the page entitled THE MURDER OF HARMONUS DUMOND you will be able to read the documents, from Governor George Clinton's Papers, as well as view the actual documents in the Papers of General George Washington, concerning this event in American history; an example of the form of terrorism that occurred during the American Revolution.

There were actually two settlements in what was known as Pakatakan. Since the East Branch of the Delaware River has changed its course several times over the years it is difficult to pinpoint the settlement between Margaretville and Arkville where some of the early settlers lived.  The settlement made by Harmonus Dumond can be more accurately placed, at the intersection of what in now called Fair Street and Southside Road.  Below is a link to a transcription of the original deed to the property settled by Harmonus Dumond.

The surveyor of this tract was John Cantine, who also plays a part in the story of the death of Harmonus Dumond in 1778. Cantine started his military career as a Sargeant in the Kingston militia. During the Revolutionary War he was promoted to Major, then a Colonel and finally a General. At the time of the death of Harmonus Dumond he was a Colonel in the Kingston Militia, with the responsibility for patrolling the East Branch of the Delaware River, in what was then Ulster, now Delaware, County.  It was he who first communicated with Governor Clinton about what had happened in Pakatakan, just two days after Harmonus was shot. He reported: The guard [militia] from Shandakan having fetch Down the inhapitants of Pakatakan with Some of their Effects Returned on the Evening of the 26th Instant....

IN THE BEGINNING

"So vague and uncertain are the traditions of the French settlers that we will be led by this topic back only to the spring of 1763. During the fall and winter previous a party was formed in Hurley, Ulster county, N. Y. to explore the Delaware valley, and, if expedient , to make arrangements for emigrating thither with their families.

Four families made the experiment, and bought four farms on great lot No. 7, on the Middletown flats in 1763. The deeds are dated April 9th of that year, and the purchase price was twenty shillings per acre. Harmonus Dumond bought the farm across the river from Margaretville, and his brother, Peter Dumond, took a farm up the river, near the present residence of Elijah A. Olmsted. Johannes Von Woggoner settled part of the Cockburn farm. The farm is so called from William Cockburn, a surveyor, who was in the employ of the Livingstons in 1774, and received this fine farm of six hundred acres for a part of his compensation. He also in 1797 made the survey and map locating the line between Delaware and Ulster counties. This line was resurveyed officially in 1874 and the marked trees were them standing, on some of which the date was still legible."

"Peter Hendricks located on the farm now owned by Noah Dimmick. Hendrick's wife was a widow Kittle, and her son, Frederick Kittle, has been spoken of as the fifth early settler, but the fact is he came with his step-father at the age of sixteen years. This farm is generally known as the Kittle farm, and in this way: Mr. Hendricks made a will giving his son a musket, and his step-son the farm. It is believed that this family purchased of one of the French Canadians, who had returned after the French and Indian troubles had subsided. THE HISTORY OF DELAWARE COUNTY, 1797-1880, W.W. MUNSELL, 1880, THE TOWN OF MIDDLETOWN, p. 256.

SETTLEMENT AND DEATH OF HARMONUS DUMOND AT PAKATAKAN:

"Between 1763 and 1778 at least forty families from Shandaken, Marbletown and the vicinity of Kingston had settled on the East Branch of the Delaware River in what is now Delaware County. These families came over Pine Hill by the route subsequently adopted for the old Sopus Turnpike. Their houses were scattered along the river southerly down as far as Downsville. The names of the heads of these first families in the vicinity of Margaretville were Harmanus Dumond, Petrus Dumond, Johannes Van Waggenen, Peter Hendricks, Peter Burger, John Burrows, Johannes Deyo, Peter Hynpagh, Frederick Kittle, James Markle, Albertus Sluyter, Simon VanWagenen and William Yaple. The first four came in 1763 and were the first white settlers on the soil of Delaware County. The name applied to the settlement made by them was 'Pakataghkan,' as it was written on Sauthier's map of 1779, or "Paghatakan,' as it was written on subsequent maps. The name of the Indian Village one-half mile below the mouth of the Bushkill, was written by Ebenezer Wooster in 1749 as 'Pawcawtocking.' Cockburn's map of 1765, which shows a road from Marbletown up Esopus Creek, over Pine Hill and down 'The Tweed,' gives the name of the settlement as 'Paughquataughcan,' and on the map of the Public Road of 1791 it is written 'Poughquataughkan.' The Indian village was an Esopus village, and various spellings and meanings have been suggested by the Bureau of Ethnology, the latest being 'Pachgandikan,' a Lenape or Delaware word now said to be confined to 'the flat piece of wood used in beating wash clothes.' Another possible and perhaps preferable derivation is 'Pawinquehikan,' to shell corn. The name is now written Pakatakan." CHAPTERS IN THE HISTORY OF DELAWARE COUNTY, NEW YORK, Delaware Co. Hist. Assn., 1949, by John Monroe.

As Monroe indicates, Harmanus Dumond, and brother Peter moved to Pakatakan from the Kingston area in 1763, Harmanus buying the farm across the river from what is now Margaretville Central School, where the sewage treatment plant is now located. Ethel Bussy, MARGARETVILLE, 1960, calls the Dumond homestead "the James Fairbairn farm," which was bought in 1763 "at twenty shillings per acre." Peter purchased the farm now known as the Howard Davis farm at the other end of the village.

"The little Dutch colony thus planted continues to increase by immigration, and within eight years numbered nine families. Of these, William Philip Henry Yaple came to the Elias Carpenter place in 1771. He evidently came to the settlement on more than one errand, for his fortunes were at once shared by Dumond's daughter Nelly. Other settlers were Simeon Von Waggoner, Slyter, Green, Hinebaugh and Bierch. All the settlers thus far had maintained friendly relations with the Indians, but during the first years of the Revolutionary troubles complications arose, by which the property, the freedom, and in some instances the lives of the colonists were sacrificed.

"The settlers were not all in sympathy with the colonists in their Revolutionary measures, and thus a feeling arose in which the Indians took sides with the tories, and many were the insults which the rebels - as they were called - had to endure. The first open quarrel growing out of these opposing political affiliations is said to have originated between two school boys, who were attending the Dutch school that had been established at Pakatakan quite early in the history of the settlement. One of Peter Dumond's sons, Isaac, was called a rebel by a young man named Markle, and the rising ire of the young Dutchmen culminated in fist blows, in which others of the larger boys took part, The result was the discontinuance of the school."

[This incident demonstrates the tension which existed at Pakatakan over the issue of "patriotism." Two of the Markle (Merkel) brothers come into play in the murder of Harmonus Dumond, a few years later, when, as part of the militia party under the command of Alexander Harper, they entered the Vanwaggenen home, where Harmonus Dumond lay dying, to tell him that they were sorry that he had been shot by some of their own company.]

There are a several versions of what took place in the settlements at Pakatakan during the American Revolution. One of the most recent, that was written as a result of local (Margaretville/Arkville - the current villages which share the site of what was generally called Pakatakan at that early date) residents requests for information about local history, is the book written by Ethel Bussy. She writes:

"During the winter of 1777-8, the Indians began a series of depredations upon the property of the settlers along the river as far as Pepacton. A body of Indians and hostile whites laid a plan to burn the homes of the white settlers at Pepacton and Pakatakan.

"By the warning of a kindly Indian, most of the settlers hastily gathered a few belongings that they could carry and retreated over the mountains eastward to the Great Shandaken with a guard who had come from the Great Shandaken to help them escape.

"Harmanus DuMond was one who would not leave with the guard and remained behind to secure certain property. The guard with his convoy had scarcely reached the Great Shandaken, when news came that Harmanus DuMond was shot in a raid by the Tories at Pakataken. He died a few days later on August 29th and was buried at Pakataken.

"Another man who refused to leave at that time was John Burrows, but he was able to escape by taking a pathless course over Dry Brook mountain into Shandaken."

(Margaretville, History and Stories of Margaretville and Surrounding Area, p. 3. Ethel H. Bussy, 1960)

Mrs. Bussy was not a careful historian, and her book was the most recent account (until the release, in 1992, of the biography of THOMAS POSEY) of the death of Harmonus (the spelling of his name from his family Bible) Dumond. She leaves the impression that Harmonus was killed by "Tories" (the English sympathizers in the American Revolution). Indeed, the first report that was carried to the Great Shandaken was that he had been killed, or wounded by tories, but he was really killed by troops from the "American" side (called "rebels" by the tories), and the documentation of the event shows clearly that the mistaken identity of the "military" group that killed Dumond was clarified. In fact, this early identification of the military group as "tories" appears to be deliberate on the part of that outfit, and was crucial in interchanges between Dumond and his killers, or, as I say, his murders. (I'm not alone, or the first to call it "murder." This term is used in the Governor Clinton Papers, as we shall see.) In her book, Mrs. Bussy relied quite heavily on the 1949 book by John D. Monroe, Chapters in the History of DELAWARE COUNTY NEW YORK, but in relating the account of the death of Harmonus Dumond, she must have relied on Jay Gould and W.W. Munsell.


Gould writes:

"From the few reliable reminiscences I have been enabled to gather, it appears that at a very early period, a few Low-Dutch families from Marbletown and Hurley, followed up the Esopus or Shandaken creek (the latter being the Indian name signifying swift waters,) and crossing the hills that divide its waters from the east branch of the Delaware, located themselves in a small settlement upon the fertile flats that skirt the latter stream. One of these settlers, a Mr.Van Waggoner settled near the present residence of Colonel Noah Dimmick, to whom the author is indebted for the above information. Another settled a short distance above, by the name of Kittle - this place was afterward familiarly known as the "Kittle Farm." Several other settlers were scattered along at intervals for several miles down the river, among whom were Hermanus Dumond, about a mile below Margar- etville, on the opposite side of the river, who was shot during the Revolution under the following painful circumstances:

"Dumond, in company with John Barrow, a neighbor, who occupied and owned the present residence of Warren Dimmick , Esq., in Middletown, had been - as my informant Colonel Dimmick recollects, and which somewhat differs from a subsequent recital of the same event in this chapter - up the river on a hunting excursion, and when returning and while near Arkville on the flat, they unexpectedly fell in with a company of Schoharie guards, who had been sent by Colonel Vroman, of Schoharie, to scour the head waters of the Delaware, and to arrest certain disaffected persons, and to destroy supposed Indian settlements, and who were now on their return to Schoharie.

"The Guard perceiving them armed ordered them to "halt." Dumond and Barrow, from the best authority I can command were favorable to the cause of the colonies, although from considerations of personal safety they had been prompted to maintain, as much as possible, a neutral position. It is therefore probable, that in their haste they mistook the character of the troops, and supposing them to be Tories and Indians, disregarded the injunction, and immediately attempted to flee. Perceiving their retreat, the commander of the troops ordered his men to fire upon them, when Dumond fell mortally wounded, surviving his fall but a brief period, while Barrow, more fortunate than his companion, escaped unhurt and unmolested, to carry the painful intelligence to the family of the deceased. The guard dismounted, and gathering around the expiring man expressed in heartfelt grief their sympathy at his untimely death; raising him gently upon their locked arms, they conveyed him to a house near by. No physician was at hand to render efficient aid, and indeed none was necessary, for it was apparent to all as they watched the tremulous pallor of his countenance, the glazed and fixed expression of his dark eye, and the cold drops of sweat that gathered upon his icy, but manly forehead revealed in unmistakable language,

"That the golden bowl was broken,"

and that life hung for a time but by a flickering and disserved thread. It was indeed a time for mourning; that little band of brave men had wives and children and hearth-stones of their own, and it was for these, the dearest and tenderest of all human interests, that they had come forth and taken upon themselves the armor of war, to protect and defend them; and when the expiring man with his last accent breathed sweet counsel to his wife and children, who depended upon him for their daily bread, there arose spontaneous in every bosom, the reflected counterpart of their own homes; perhaps at that instant the ruthless savage has raised the fierce war-whoop, and with tomahawk in hand has passed the threshold of his own domicile to drink the heart's blood of his own kindred, or if they escape death, to be carried into a captivity, if possible, worse even than death. A rude and shallow grave is prepared, in which, without coffin or shroud, or monument to mark his resting-place, they placed him with his arms slightly folded, and without removing his clothes.

"The death of Dumond was an unfortunate circumstance for his family. He was the father of a large family of children, most of whom at that time were small. My informant, Cyrus Burr, Esq., knew three of the sons, John, David and Hermanus, all of whom are now dead, and two daughters, both of whom married men by the name of Yaples. One of them, the widow of Philip Yaple, deceased, resides at present in Plattekill, in the town of Middletown."

Mrs. Bussy, unfortunately, relied too heavily on Munsell's history. The account in this source reads:

"The whigs having left the settlement, there remained only those who were in sympathy with the English, and Pakatakan thus became an uncontaminated tory community. No further attempt was made by the settlers to establish themselves here until after the Revolution, but the refugees made frequent visits to their former homes to secure other of their personal effects, or to gather the crops that they left growing. On one of these occasion Mr. A. Yaple was taken prisoner by a band of tories, among whom was Blanch, one of his former neighbors. He was taken to Pepacton, and there detained in custody until the crops he had intended to gather were secured the tories and Indians, when he was released and allowed to return with some few of his goods.

"These outrages had so aroused the attention of the Americans that during the summer a company of militia was sent from Schoharie to scour the upper valleys of the Delaware and to arrest or drive out the disaffected persons, and to destroy certain Indian villages where aid and comfort were being given to the British enemy. While here they came upon John Burrow and Harmonus Dumond, and seeing them armed and refusing to halt, the guard were ordered to fire. Dumond was mortally wounded, and died in Simeon Von Woggoner's hotel three days later, on the 29th of August, 1778; but Burrow made good his escape, by taking a pathless course up Dry brook and over the mountains into Shandaken. It is claimed by the descendants of these men that they were both whigs, but tried to escape supposing the soldiers were enemies of the colonists." THE HISTORY OF DELAWARE COUNTY W.W.

If Bussy had studied the most accurate document to date, John Monroe's account, and examined to documents in Governor George Clinton's papers she would have arrived at a far different conclusion, than that: "he was shot in a raid by the Tories..."

Monroe gives the details of events leading up to Harmonus Dumond's death, but even he does not include a very important document - the actual message that Dumond gave to the "American" military officials, that ended up in Governor Clinton's papers. Governor Clinton utilized the information provided by Dumond, and responded to it on more than one occasion.
