    • A History of Schenectady during the Revolution states, "He lived near Haverly's in Glenville and died there. During the war he suffered much from the Indians and Tories, and was compelled to flee repeatedly from his home to Schenectady for safety. On one occasion a party led by Walter Butler came to Schermerhorn's house and after plundering it carried away two boys, one a German and the other a negro. The former of the boys was scalped but later recovered. Schermerhorn's name appears on the rolls of the 2nd Albany County Militia, Land Bounty Rights."
