Schoharie County, NY History

Schoharie County, New York

We are happy to offer our first items of genealogy and local history from Schoharie County, NY, and we plan to offer additional items of historical interest soon.


Now Available for Download


Schoharie County in Mather & Brockett's Geographical History of the State of New York (1848). 

This early gazetteer provides a point in time look at Schoharie County that comes at a decent interval before the more comprehensive French's Gazetteer twelve years later.  There are five pages specifically dedicated to Schoharie County, and in addition we have included the section about land grants and patents statewide.  5++ pages, in PDF format, download now for $1.75.

 Schoharie County, NY in Mather & Brockett (1848)


The Schoharie County chapter from French's Gazetteer of the State of New York (1860). Here is a look at Schoharie County a bit over a decade after Mather & Brockett's treatment of the subject.  The localities mentioned in boldface type in this chapter are: Blenheim, Patchin Hollow, Broome, Livingstonville, Franklinton, Smithton, Carlisle, Argusville, Grovenors Corners, Cobleskill, Cobleskill Center, Lawyersville, East Cobleskill, Barnersville, Conesville, Strykersville, Stone Bridge, Manorkill, Esperance, Sloansville, Fulton, Brakabeen, Fultonham, West Fulton, Watsonville, Petersburgh, Gilboa, South Gilboa, West Gilboa, Mackies Corners, Mine Kil Falls, Jefferson, Morseville, Middleburgh, Hunters Land, Mill Valley, Richmondville, Warnerville, West Richmondville, Schoharie, Central Bridge, Barton Hill, Seward, Hyndsville, Seward Valley, Gardnersville, Clove, Sharon, Sharon Springs, Rockville, Sharon Center, Sharon Hill, Leesville, Engellsville, Beckmans Corners, Summit, Charlotteville, Lutheranville, Eminence, Wright, Gallupville, Shutters Corners, and Waldenville.  9+ pages, in PDF format, download now for $2.00.

 Schoharie County from French's Gazetteer (1860)


A History of the Town of Jefferson, by Mildred L. Bailey (undated but presumably circa 1976).  Mrs. Bailey quite outdid herself with this history.  It is comprehensive, detailed, and complete.  We've seen quite a few town histories in this business, and this one stands out as one of the best.  Mrs. Bailey was the town historian of this Schoharie County township, and we feel the town was fortunate indeed to have her.  204+ pages, in PDF format, download now for $4.50.

 History of the Town of Jefferson, by Mildred L. Bailey


Schoharie County was separated from Albany and Otsego Counties in 1795.  You may also want to consult our Albany County page and our Otsego County page for locations that may have been affected by this transaction.
