Generation: 4

  1. 12.  Lorentz Harter was born on 14 Oct 1698.

    Notes:

    "Lorentz was naturalized at Albany 28 Feb 1716 and a patentee at Burnetsfield on lot #37 in 1722. He wrote the birthdates for himself, his wife, and his children in the family bible, which is now preserved at the Herkimer Co. Hist. Society. In this 'Herrther Bible', Lorentz stated he had eight sons and four daughters, but gave the names and dates for only the five sons and four daughters now known. Perhaps he purchased the bible after the last child was born and entered all the data at one time, which might account for omitting details on children that had died young. [...] His will dated 1 Jul 1776 mentions wife Abelonia, eldest son Nicholas (who got 20 shillings for his birthright), and three other sons, Fredrich, Hendrix, & Lorentz, who were to inherit his property, including lot #12. Also mentioned were daughters Catherine, Elisabeth, and Margaret and an 'Abelonia Schuttin', who was to receive his loom (she was probably his granddaughter, age about 10 then). Probably the Lorentz Sr who had 3 adults and 1 child (under 16) on 1778 German Flats relief." [Early Families of Herkimer County, New York, citation details below.]

    According to Harter History (citation details below), he and his wife are said to be buried at Frankfort, New York, and a monument near Utica lists 21 descendants of Lorentz Herrther/Harter who served in the American Revolution.
