Dockstader Johnson Connection
Posted by: George S. Dockstader (ID *****1469) Date: August 23, 2010 at 11:44:42

Does anyone know of an instance where a male Dockstader (pre 1778) actually changed his last name to Johnson? And could have been living or stationed in Massachusetts between 1770 to 1790? Maybe died at Bunker Hill? I know that there were some connections between Lord William Johnson (pre American revolution) with a George Adam Docksteder. And I have seen where later a Lt. Col. John Johnson commanded a British Royal New York regiment that relocated 700 Loyalist families to Montreal from the Mohawk river valley area at some point near the Revolutionary War period..and some Dockstaders were involved there. Any clues at all will be much appreciated. We are working on a very cool family project that has led us to believe this may be a missing puzzle peice. More on that later....
