Saugerties Historical Society, June 13, 1998


Know O Traveler, within site of this hill on October 6, 1710, led by the Rev. Joshua Kochertal and the Rev. Johann Frederick Hager, there arrived on the east and west shores of Hudson's River nearly 300 families of refugees of the Palatine Region in Europe, who suffered many sorrows in the ravages of war, sickness, poverty and destitution, yet survived to settle these shores, sustained by their faith in the Lord and the sympathy of Queen Anne of England, whom they came to serve in the reduction of the pine forest for naval stores for her Majesty's Fleet. Do you wish to know more? Seek out their names on this tablet, on the pages of history their deeds.
