SYRACUSE, N. Y.: D. MASON & CO., Publishers. 1893.

Among the white men who penetrated the wilderness in the western part of what is now Herkimer county as early or earlier than the Pala- tine settlements were made at Fort Herkimer (German Flats), was John Jurgh Kass (or Kast, as now written). He was one of the thrifty Germans who saw the possibilities of trade with the Indians, and it is known that he was among them in 1720 trading them ammunition and trinkets for their valuable furs. A tradition exists that he also sold them the coveted rum, and that for a keg of the " fire water " he bought about 1 1,000 acres of choice land, which he described, and that in 1724 his titled was confirmed to him by Great Britain. This was the earliest date of a patent in this country, although the Burnetsfield grantees (Kast being one) settled on their lands a year earlier. Some of the de- scendants of Kast are still living in this county.

The town of Schuyler probably sufifered but little in the French and Indian war, its situation on the west of the frontier saving it, in a large measure, from savage incursions. Permanent settlement began in the

eastern part of the town about the year 1764, when Peter Hasenclever, an enterprising and wealthy German from Wurtemberg, came to the colon}' and erected iron works on the Hudson River near West Point; he also established trading posts farther west, and obtained a site for settlement at what is now East Schuyler. During the period preceding the Revolution this was the extreme western settlement in this State.

While in Wurtemberg on a visit Hasenclever pictured to the German peasants the wonders of the new world in such glowing colors that a number of them consented to emigrate. Hasenclever provided them with means for their passage to his settlement, and agreed to supply them and their families with subsistence for three years in return for their service. He built an ashery, probably the first frame building, and the first manufactory of any kind within the present bounds of Schuyler. He also had a store (the first in Herkimer county), which was situated on land now occupied by the widow of D. I. Briden- becker. Potash and other products were shipped by Hasenclever down the Moliawk in flat boats, and merchandise and provisions re- turned in the same manner. He also began to build a saw-mill on a small stream flowing into the Mohawk. This settlement he named " New Petersburg." Over thirty log houses were built for tlie people employed by Hasenclever, among whom were families named Briden- becker. Staring, Bargy (formerly written Birchi), Clemens, Widrig, Oyer (formerly written Aiyer and Irer), Finster, Keller, Steinway, and others. Descendants of several of these families still occupy land on which their ancesters first settled.
