  • Notes 
    • Of the wife of Jacob D. Schermerhorn, familiarly called "Aunt Nellie," a grandson writes as follows: "She was a woman of lovely disposition and her kindness to the people who had settled in the wilds of Sullivan Co. was proverbial. Many a night she was called to attend a case of sickness, and she and her husband, my grandfather, would get out of good warm bed and he would hitch up his horses, and they would drive fifteen or twenty miles, as the case might be, on a cold winter's night, that she might assist in alleviating the distresses of the suffering one."
