  • Notes 
    • Aaron A. Schermerhorn inherited from his father the property called the "Hook."He lived in Rotterdam and was a farmer. He served in the War of 1812. His son, Myndert A., was a soldier in the Mexican War and was one of the early gold miners of California. He also made several whaling voyages and served three years in the Civil War, enlisting first in the 134th N. Y. Infantry. He finally returned to Rotterdam, the home of his youth, and lived there for the remainder of his life. [4]
