I too am investigating General John Bradstreet who served with British forces during the French and Indian War. I am familiar also with the discovery of the Bradstreet papers and his portrait found in a Schenectady, NY home.

Bradstreet was riding his horse one day toward the Schuyler home at the "Flatts" in what is now Colonie when he noticed heavy smoke coming from the home. He alerted Madam Schuyler to the fire and assisted in removing valuables from the home, which was badly damaged by the fire. Bradstreet then had his soldiers help to rebuild the home. I am very much interested in any papers that relate to correspondence between Bradstreet and others as related to the Schuyler Flatts during the French and Indian war era, especially 1758-59. Any persons with information can contact me at the e-mail posted on this listing. Thanks, K.Franklin, Historian, Town of Colonie, N.Y. Much information on the Schuyler Flatts can be found on the Internet.
