Greetings,

The petitions listed on your site in connection with this branch of the family provide a lot of new information thanks for the link. From the summaries it sounds as if John Dochstader5 Burnham ( Mary4 Dochstader, Captain John3, Georg Adam2, Johann Georg1 ), whose ultimate whereabouts were formerly unknown, moved to NY and sold the land he'd inherited from his grandfather to his second cousin George Henry5 Dochstader ( George Adam4 Dockstader, Henry3, Georg Adam2, Johann Georg1 ), who indeed lived on that property, and that this transaction didn't sit well with the Six Nations. I don't know if it's actually stated anywhere that Captain John3 had an older brother George Joseph Brant's letter indicates that he has an older brother Henry3; John4 Dockstader UE of Montreal had an older brother George4 Dockstader UE and these two served in the KRRNY during the Revolution.

As to the line mentioned on your site, this info likewise clears up some mysteries involving Upper Canada Dockstaders. The John Dockstader who married Margaret Hackeny had the patronymic initial N ( for Nicholas ) in both his marriage record and again in several of the baptismal records for his and Margaret's children. This John4 Dockstader, who was the son of Nicholas3 Dockstader, a patriot, and nephew of George Adam3, Captain John3, Henry3 of Caistor and Frederick3 Dochstader, all loyalists, was christened at the RPDCC ( Reformed Protestant Dutch Church of Caughnawaga ) in 1771, but no specific date of christening or birthdate was given, so it's conceivable he might have been born about 1765 when his parents were married. Below is his line, including the family of Jacob5 ( John4, Nicholas3, Georg Adam2, Johann Georg1 ) who is mentioned on your site. "UE" below signifies service or at least residence with the British during the Revolution, and "AR" signifies service of the individual ( or her husband ) in an American militia. The family of Georg Adam2 Dockstader was split down the middle, or better put, cleaved in three parts, with the two oldest and three youngest children being loyalists, three in the middle being patriots, and one ( Sarah who married Whitaker; her children seem to have stayed in New York, so this is not likely the family of Thomas Whitaker U.E. who went to Nova Scotia ) neutral or otherwise undetermined.

The other Dockstaders you list from Hastings County, Nicholas Doxtater ( b. abt 1792 US ) and Richard Doxtater ( b. abt 1807 New York ), belong to the following family which I've just put together using the 1851, 1871, 1881 censuses, and which settled in the same area. They seem to have used with great consistency the surname spelling in "X", but are not, as far as I know, related to the First Nations Doxtator lines.

The following births are recorded at Stone Arabia in New York ( but after 1800, thus not in Early Dockstaders post ):

1 Casper Dockstader
. . . + Marigreta Walradt
. . . . . . 2 Hendrick Dockstader b. 18 MAY 1802, chr. 1802 (RPDCC).
. . . . . . 2 Richart Dachstetter b. 06 JUN 1804 (LTC).
. . . . . . 2 Margaret Dachstetter b. 22 FEB 1807 (LTC).

Assuming there are only so many Casper / Gasper Dockstaders who married a Margaret and then had a son Richard born 06 JUN ( albeit 1804 rather than 1807 ), this would appear to be the primary Hastings Dockstader link. The DDR entry ( p. 101 ) for Casper reads: "Casper Dockstader was undoubtedly a son of Johan Nicholas and Darcus (VanDerWerken) Dockstader, and named for his mother's brother, although no baptismal record was found or any record of his marriage to Margaret Walradt (Walrath) as named at the 1802 baptism of a son at the Caughnawaga Reformed Church Montgomery County, New York." Indeed Casper Dockstader probably was named for Casper Vanderwerken ( there being only two or three Caspers in Stone Arabia ), but Casper Vanderwerken was also the cousin of Darcus Vanderwerken's sister, Catherine Vanderwerken, who is the wife of Nicholas Dochstader [ AR ], these in turn being the parents of John Dochstader of Hastings so, by this logic, it seems equally possible that Casper Dochstader, who was born abt 1768 according to the 1851 census, may have been the eldest son of Nicholas3 Dochstader, and therefore a brother to John4 Dochstader of Hastings who was chr. 1772 in NY. More research would need to be done to clarify who is who. If the John Dockstader that's mentioned in Captain Meyers' will was "John C. Dockstader" then this might have been another ( probably an older ) son of Casper Dockstader of Hastings, i.e. "John C. Dockstader" as opposed to "John N. Dockstader" of the same general area.


The other Dochstaders mentioned in the abstracts listed on your site, so far as I can ascertain, have the following lineages:

Both of these above are indian signees and thus likely Indians as named in various indentures between Six Nations granting 21 year leases for land in the Grand River area in 1834 to various individuals. One of the purchasers is Charles Myers.
[ Not sure Joseph might be Captain John3's son, but John3 has no son named William in his will; I'd guess these are probably grandsons of Captain John3 through his son John4 or Joseph4 of Mohawk Castle ]

Several long legal letters. One dated 15 Jun 1836, claim by Catherine Balm, heir at law of George Dockstader, deceased, to a tract of land on the Grand River granted by or on behalf of the Indians to Capt John Dockstader and after his death to his descendants Catherine Burnham and John Burnham. On the death of John Dockstader who died intestate, leaving by his Indian wife, a daughter, Catherine , the wife of Lyman Burnham, who had then a son, John Burnham, ... the Indians then granted a new lease to Catherine and John Burnham as the heirs of John Dockstader. The intention of the Indians was to provide for those of their blood and not for the heirs of the older brother <George Dockstader> of John Dockstader who are strangers to their blood.

John Burnham, now of Buffalo County, NY, sells the land inherited from Capt John Dockstader, deceased, that was leased to him for 999 years by Joseph Brant to George Henry Dockstader and dated 22 May 1834. Another dated 15 Nov 1819 states that both Capt John Dockstader and Joseph Brant are deceased and that the land was leased for 999 years. The various indentures record the disbursment of the original 2000 acres granted to John Dockstader and sold off by his heirs. An order in council 16 Jun 1836 declared these purchasers be granted "letters patent". Most of the sales are by Lyman and Catherine Burnham and their son John Burnham. (See this regarding Catherine).

Other Notes

------------

1) Jellis Dockstader, son of Henry and a Catherine Van Antwerp in DDR, alleged brother of Henry of Caistor

As mentioned in the earlier post Jellis Dockstader doesn't exist. The lone son attributed to him in DDR via the DAR record ( John Fredick Dockstader ) is the same as Johann Frederickse3 Dockstader, son of Frederick2 Dockstader and grandson of Johann Georg1. Part of the confusion comes from the use of multiple sources in DDR and some duplicate entries for the same person as a result ( cf. my own ancestor Frederick3, who disappears from the line he is born into only to reappear in another line without a birth record ). If you compare the two J.F. Dockstaders mentioned in DDR, Frederick2's son and Jellis3's son, you will notice the following:

- Both are named John F. Dockstader ( F = patronymic, Frederickse )
- Both were born in August of 1751 / 1753
- Both married "Barbara" ( this = Barbara Weaver according to baptismal records )
- Both died in 1839 one has the gravestone, the other has the tradition
- Both served in the Revolutionary war and have the initials "J. F. Dockstader" found on the butt of the rifle mentioned in DDR
- Both have a son Frederick born 1779 ( Church records indicate he was born 01 AUG 1779 to Frederick Dockstader and Barbara Weaver, and was baptized on the 14th )
- Only the John Frederick4 from Jellis' line is continued in the DDR volumes; John Frederick3 from Frederick's line is not continued ( because they are the same person )

The I. / J. used as the middle initial by J.F.'s two sons in DDR stands for Johannese or Janse, i.e. son of John. Whoever included "Jellis Dockstader and Mary Felter" as J.F.'s parents in their DAR record didn't know and made them up. The line for Jellis' descendants can be integrated into the line of Frederick2 Dachstader like so:

1 Johan Georg Dachstetter b. Abt 1679 Germany.
. . . + Anna Elisabetha
. . . . . . 2 Johann Frederich Dachstatter b. 14 MAY 1717, chr. 06 JUN 1717, Schoharie, NY. (Kocherthal)
. . . . . . . . . + Elisabetha Staring
. . . . . . . . . . . { 3 Fridrich F. Dachstaeder }
. . . . . . . . . . . . 3 Johannes F. Dachstatter chr. 01 AUG 1751 (RDC).
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . + Barber Weever
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 4 Fredrick Doxteder (I) b. 11 JUL 1777, chr. 13 JUL 1777 (RPDCC).
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 4 Frederik Doksteeder (II) b. 01 AUG 1779, chr. 14 AUG 1779 (RPDCC).
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 4 Peter Doxteder b. 26 AUG 1782, chr. 26 AUG 1782 (RPDCC).
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . { 4 John I. / J. Dockstader b. 05 SEP 1784 (GS) }
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 4 Margaretha Dachstaedter b. 31 OCT 1790, chr. 07 NOV 1790 (RDC).
. . . . . . . . . . . { 3 Nicholas F. Dockstader }
. . . . . . . . . . . . 3 Catharina Dagstett b. 14 MAR 1756 (LTC).
. . . . . . . . . . . { 3 Leonard Dockstader }
. . . . . . . . . . . . 3 Georgius Dachstaeder b. 27 DEC 1761, chr. 03 JAN 1762 (RDC).

2) Patience Decow who married Skinner

It turns out Patience was actually the second wife of Timothy Skinner of Stamford ( i.e. mother only to Job Skinner b. 03 DEC 1787 and Patience Skinner b. 13 DEC 1796 and not to the earlier children ), so she might well be a Generation 6 Decow rather than a Generation 5 Decow, i.e. daughter of Jacob UE rather than sister. The older Skinner family genealogies give the second wife of Timothy Skinner, who spent the Revolutionary War in Sussex County NJ, as 'Patience Slaght', but I'm informed by a Skinner family researcher that there is no actual evidence for the surname. Given the entry in the Decou Genealogy ( Patience, m. Skinner, 1 son ), this is probably the link. It will again mean seven children for Jacob Decow UE where his petition mentions only six. Parish records for Oxford Twp and Pequest NJ from the eighteenth century are as yet nowhere to be found but the search goes on.
