  • Notes 
    • Capt. Daniel C. Schermerhorn lived in Schodack, Rensselaer Co., N. Y. He owned considerable property and was evidently of importance in the neighborhood, as in fact, were all Schermerhorns of Schodack at that time. He was the owner of Schodack Island, as is evidenced by a deed for this property granted to him May 24, 1775, by Barent H. Ten Eyck.

      He was an elder in the Reformed Church of Schodack.

      The old homestead of Capt. Daniel C. Schermerhorn is still owned and occupied by his descendents. His property is shown on the Van Alen map of 1785-90. It consists of three separate parcels of land comprising in all about 325 acres.
