One of my ancestors, Heinrich Jung, was a Palatine living on Livingston's Manor in 1709 listed along with 38 others from there for volunteers in the expedition against Canada in 1711. This expedition was organized to try and stop the frequent raids on Albany and surrounding areas by the French and Indians during King Hendrick's War. The expedition, under Colonel Nicholson had travelled only as far as Wood Creek near Lake George when they learned that a British fleet, sent to attack Quebec and fortify their force of 2,000 men, had foundered in the St. Lawrence River. The expedition returned to Albany in August of 1711, a failure. The lists of men from Annsberg and Queensbury can be found in "The Documentary History of the State of New York, Vol. III, by E.B. O'Callaghan, printed by Weed, Parsons & Co., Albany, N.Y., 1850. Most US libraries have the full set of O'Callaghan's history which runs to, I think, 8 volumes.
