Coxsackie in the Revolution


Transcribed by Arlene Goodwin. From the book entitled, "Ye Olden Time, as compiled from the Coxsackie News of 1889" written by Robert Henry Van Bergen, together with notations by Rev. Delber W. Clark, and edited by Francis A. Hallenbeck, 1935


Coxsackie in the Revolution

The story of Coxsackie’s share in the Revolution is one that must be patched together from several sources. The list of soldiers is a composite of two different lists, one from the Beer’s History of Greene County, and the other from one in possession of Miss Eleanor Heermance. The latter was preserved by Dr. Andrew Van Slyke in the back of his copy of the Baptism Register of the First Reformed Church. The list of officers of Colonel Anthony Van Bergen’s Regiment is from the County History. The lists of soldiers is alphabetically arranged from both sources. Those in the Beer’s County History are as followed by B. and those in Miss Heermance’s list are followed by H.
