[1142] ORIGIN: Dr. Fitzgerald writes: "There were two Adam W. Empeys, married at approximately the same time. One
was born at Stone Arabia, Albany (later Tryon and even later Montgomery) County, NYS, whose parents were
William Empey Sr. (1728-1803) and Maria Margaret Lauxs (Louchs). He married Margaret Von Steinberg 7 Feb
1804. She was d/o Henry of Osnabruck and Hannah Servos and was born at Albany, NY, c. Oct 1783. The elder
Adam was a yeoman of Osnabruck Twsp.
The other Adam William was born & bapt. 18 March 1789 of Wm. Jnr. (s/o Philip Snr.) and Catherine Von
Hildebrandt. The younger Adam was of Cornwall Town and a butcher. He married Ann __?;__.
Their respective children are difficult to separate for certain, but using their residences and occupations one can
be reasonably sure of oneself."
BIRTH: Stone Arabia, Palatine, Montgomery Co., NY USA, per Empey Famiy Family chart, compiled by E. Keith
Fitzgerald, 1988.
Birth date based on his brother William's UCLP of 1850, which said he would, "if living" be 88 at the time.
However, there is room for doubt here, as the petition was not accurate about the dates of any of the other children.
All we know is that his brother William lists him as the 2nd oldest living son of William, Sr.
OCCUPATION: Farmer. He was a yeoman of Osnabruck Twsp., Stormont Co., Ontario Canada. (EKF)
In 1784 he had gone to Montreal to get seed wheat. (Ed Kipp)
MARRIAGE: Williamsburg/Matilda/Osnabruck/Edwardsburgh Parish Record, 1790-1886,, MS 201 (6) Liber A,
Page 11: "Marriage, 7 Feb 1804, Adam Empey, son of William Empey of Osna and Peggy Steinberg, daughter of
Henry Steinberg of Osna."
MILITARY: During the Revolution he served as a private in the Kings Royal Regiment of New York and had land
confiscated in Stone Arabia as a Yeoman. (DKM)
Edward Kipp says "He was a private in the KRRNY, Battalion 1, and enlisted on August 15, 1777. He was in
Angus Mc Donnell's Company, 1777. He is shown as a member of Capt. John McDonnell's Co. of Grenadiers and
was age 22 on 24 December 1783 when 1 KRRNY was disbanded. He was a Grenadier from 1781-83".
In the 1786 Victualling List for Osnabruck Twp., he is shown as single." (EKF)
As a Loyalist he appears on list of land confiscated in Palatine Montgomery Co., NY, per J. Reilly, 1974: The
Confiscation and sale of the Loyalist Estates and its Effect Upon...etc," NYS Library, Albany, NY.
DEATH: Died 3 Apr 1824, aged 64 1/2, per Osnabruck Church Register # 36. (EKF)
