Ray Brown's website Ray's Place has town histories as published in Landmarks of Rensselaer County by George Baker Anderson (Syracuse, NY: D. Mason & Co., Publishers, 1897). For Chapter XXXI, Town of Nassau, click here.

Nassau was formed from Petersburgh, Stephentown, and Schodack, March 31, 1806, by the name of "Philipstown"1. Its name was changed April 6, 1808. It lies near the center of the southern border of the county. Its surface is very broken. Snake Hill, in the southwest, is about 800 feet above tide. The principal streams are Kinderhook and Tsatsawassa2 Creeks, and Valatie Kill. There are several fine lakes among the hills, the principal of which are the Tsatsawassa and the Pattawassa. The Psanticoke Swamp, west of the center, covers several hundred acres. The soil is clay and gravel underlaid by hardpan. Considerable manufacturing is carried on in town3. Nassau (p.v.), incorporated March 12, 1819, is the seat of Nassau Academy. Population 300. East Nassau (p.v.) has 45 houses, Hoag's Corner (p.v.) 25, Alps (p.v.) 24, North Nassau (p.v.) 15, and Miller's Corners 10. Slab City4 is a hamlet; Brainards (p.v.) contains a female seminary and 20 houses5. The first settler was Hugh Wilson, who located on the site of Nassau Village in 17606. At that time a few Native American families of the Stockbridge tribe were living where Mr. Hoag's orchard now stands7. The Stockbridge conveyed to Joseph Primmer a tract of land north of Hoag's Pond8 and another tract south of it to Hugh Wilson, May 16, 17609. Within the last 20 years a considerable quantity of land has been allowed to produce a second crop of timber. There are seven churches in town10.

The following abstract is from Gazetteer and Business Directory of Rensselaer County, N. Y., for 1870-71, compiled and published by Hamilton Child in 1870.

Nassau was formed from Petersburgh, Stephentown and Schodack, on March 31, 1806, as Philipstown. It received its present name on April 6, 1808. It lies near the center of the south border of the county. The surface is very broken. Snake Hill,in the southwest, is about 800 feet above tide. The principal streams are Kinderhook and Tackawasick (or Tsatsawassa) Creeks; and Valatie Kill. There are several fine lakes among the hills, the principal of which are the Tsatsawassa and the Patawassa. The Psanticoke Swamp, in the western part of the town, covers several hundred acres. The soil is clay and gravel, underlaid by hardpan. Manufacturing is carried on to a considerable extent in the town.

Nassau, situated in the southwestern part, was incorporated on March 12, 1819, contains some manufacturing and about 300 inhabitants.

The village of West Nassau contains about 50 houses.

The village of East Nassau contains about 200 inhabitants.

The village of Hoag's Corners contains about 200 inhabitants.

The village of Alps contains about 100 inhabitants.

North Nassau and Miller's Corners are hamlets.

The village of Brainerd, formerly called Brainard's Bridge, is in the southeastern part. It contains about 200 inhabitants and is the site of the Transylvania Institute, established in 1838, as a boarding school for ladies and gentlemen.

There is a limited amount of manufacturing in most of these villages.

The first settler of this town was Hugh Wilson, who located on the site of Nassau village in 1760. At that time, a few Native American families of the Stockbridge tribe were living in the vicinity. They called their village On-ti-ke-ho-mawck, and their chief was Kesh-o-mawck. The Stockbridge conveyed one tract of land north of Hoag's Pond to Joseph Primmer and another tract south of the pond to Hugh Wilson, on May 16, 1760. Among the early settlers were Thomas Hicks, Henry Post, John McCagg, Daniel Litz, Titus Hemsted, Abraham Holmes, James Marks, John M. Schermerhorn, Major A. Brush, Reuben Bateman, Nathaniel Gillet, David Waterbury, and men named McNeil and Wiltsie.

William Primmer is said to have been the first child born in the town. The first grist mill was built on the outlet of Tsatsawassa Pond, by Mr. Schermerhorn, previous to the American Revolution. The first inn was kept a little before the Revolution, by a Mr. Hicks, and the first store, a short time after the Revolution, by Hoag & Vail.

Within the last thirty years a considerable quantity of land has been allowed to produce a second crop of timber.

The population in 1865 was 2,894, and its area 26,998 acres.

The number of school districts is sixteen, employing the same number of teachers. The number of children of school age is 953; the number attending school is 761; the average attendance is 292, and the amount expended for school purposes for the year ending Sept. 30, 1866, was $4,196.36.


The following abstract is from History of Rensselaer Co., New York by Nathaniel Bartlett Sylvester, published in 1880.

The town of Nassau was organized in 1806 as Philipstown, in honor of Philip Van Rensselaer. In its first few years, it was to undergo several name changes. During this time, it was known as New Stores, then Union Village, and finally, in 1818, Nassau.

Nassau Village, with its population of 300 and 57 houses at the time of its incorporation in 1819, was the social center of Nassau. There were hotels - the Kelly Hotel, later called the Kingman House, and the Homestead Hotel, built by Jonathan Hoag in 1792. It was said to have been one of the stops on the underground railway for escaping slaves.

Many distinguished visitors came to Nassau. In 1825 General Lafayette came with his friend Stephen Van Rensselaer. Joseph Bonaparte - brother of Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France - passed through on his way to Lebanon Springs. Martin Van Buren, former President of the United States, often ate his Sunday dinner at the hotel.

In addition to being a social center, the village was an industrial center, with its grist mills, carriage factories, card shop, candy factory, and shingle and lath factory. In the early 1900s, Nassau had a piano factory.

This next list is also from Sylvester's History of Rensselaer County, published in 1880; it was transcribed and alphabetized by Debby Masterson. Sylvester describes it as a "list of soldiers credited to the town [Nassau], prepared from the printed muster-in rolls of the State and from the census reports of 1865."

Lin Van Buren added that some names appear twice, perhaps because Sylvester's team of researchers found the name both on a muster-in roll and on the deaths list of the 1865 NY State Census. Although Sylvester is a secondary source, the original census pages survive, and if you find a name here in which you are interested, you can look at the original census pages yourself. It should also be noted that the census deaths list reports what the soldier's surviving family TOLD the census enumerator. It would appear from at least one Nassau soldier, Darius Morris, and perhaps also from others such as Ceno Och, that conflicting information about some soldiers' death exists. Here is what Lin found in researching Darius Morris, in case it may help other researchers who find conflicting information in primary sources about the death of their US Civil War soldier. Darius Morris's name appears in an article by the war correspondent of the Troy Daily Times that was published on 23 May 1864, only a few days after the Battle of Drury's Bluff in Virginia. This article was an eyewitness account of the battle, written at Drury's Bluff. Published with the article was a list of casualties, and among those reported as killed was Darius Morris. Either the newspaper report of his death in this battle was erroneous or the belief of his grieving parents that their beloved son starved at Andersonville was erroneous. Andersonville records do indeed name Darius Morris - but they also show that he was not buried at Andersonville, that his place of death is unknown and that no further information is given. In other words, the Andersonville records show that he was reported by a party unknown as having been there. You can find out more about Andersonville at the Andersonville website.
