bullet  General Notes:

22 Nov 1781: Counrodt Ham is executor of the father-in-law's will, Frederick Staight of Rhynbeck in Dutchess County

1790 Census lists at Livingston, Columbia Co., Coonradt Ham with 2 males over 16, 1 male under 16, 7 females.

1790's: Mr. Boyce writes: "My Conrad Ham...moved up to Nassau Lake in Rensselear Co., NY in the 1790's. I was born and raised on another farm only 1000ft. from where Conrad settled. 1000 ft. below where I was born, the Dutch Ref. Church was started in 1803. Some 20 years later, it was moved to Nassau, 2 miles south. There were a few grave stones standing up intil 50 years ago and I expect that is where Conrad was buried. His son and later generations are buried at Nassau"

1799: Conrad and his wife Christina were listed as members of the East Greenbush (Rens.Co.) DR Church.

1800 Census lists at Shodack, Rensselaer County, (Nassau was partly taken from Schodack in 1806) Coonrad Ham with 4 (?) males under 10, 1 male 10-16 years old, 1 male 16-26, 1 male over 45, 2 females 10-16. 3 females 16-26, 1 female 26-45, 1 female over 45.

Johan Conrad was known to his great granddaugher, Elizabeth Porter as 'Conradt Hamm', but careful examination of what she knew compared to the careful research of David Kendal Martin and Hank Jones makes it pretty clear that this is the same family group.

Johan's baptism record exists, as well as numerous records of his sponsoring children through the middle part of the 18th century. He evidently fought in the Revolution, although the records are not exactly clear given the number of Conrad Hams. About 1790 he moved from his father's homelands around Livingston, NY to Nassau, not far from Albany, where he and his wife Christina are shown as members of the East Greenbush Dutch Reformed Church and he appears on the 1820 census. His will was probated in 1808 and showed his residence as Schodack, NY.

While not much is known about them, the family may have been fairly well off. In about 1833, when she was five, Elizabeth Porter visited Johan's son's house in Schodack and recalled it as 'big, with shiny floors'. This she recounted in interviews taken about 1913 by her neices. 1 4 5
