Herkimer County



Tryon county was a county in colonial New York. It was created from Albany county in 1772. It comprised the area west of Johnstown to Lake Erie, south to Pennsylvania and north to the St Lawrence. It consisted of fives towns or districts, Mohawk, Palatine, Canajohorie, German Flatts and Kingsland. The name was changed in 1784 to honor General Richard Montgomery, slain at the Battle of Quebec. Herkimer county was split off in 1791, being much larger than it is now. In 1794 land for Onondaga county was split off, in 1798 Chenango county and Oneida county and in 1802 for St Lawrence county.

Several of the Veterans on this list were stated to have been born or died in Tryon county. I have listed them here, with the hope that they might have been buried in Herkimer or that the listing of their name should bring them to the attention of someone who may have more knowledge of their fate.

References are also made to Andrustown. This was a small village located eight miles south of the Mohawk river near the headwater of Fulmer creek. On July 18, 1778 the village was burnt to the ground and it's citizens killed by Tories and Indians under the command of Joseph Brant. After the war the fields were worked but the village never rebuilt. The surnames of the Andrustown included Bell, Crim, Frank, Hoyer, Lepper, Osterhout and Stauring. The Daughters of the American Revolution have created a memorial to be placed at the scene of the massacre.

The following table is my attempt at locating Revolutionary War burials in Herkimer county New York. It's taken the 1835 Pensioner Census and the Daughter's of the American Revolution website. It should not be taken as final in any way. DAR# is the number assigned by the Daughters of the American Revolution and FAG# is the memorial number on findagrave.com. The burials with a memorial on Findagrave have been collected into a virtual cemetery, that may contain more information and photos.
