    Notes 
    • THE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR
      The French and Indian Wars were the first series of actual military conflicts that we have records for and they affected the local Beekman Precinct residents in several ways. First, many of the local men were active in the various campaigns and several of them died. But secondly, this war and its eventual resolution helped pave the way for many of our local families to leave Beekman for other areas. When the local militia units went to the Albany area to do battle they saw good land that could be purchased (rather than leased) and when the threat of the Indian raids had subsided many of them took their billoting money and went north. Dozens of them settled in Schaghticoke, Stillwater and Half Moon and the listing of baptisms in the church records from the local to the northern churches is continuous. Those who were military and county officers at this time were required to take oaths of Abjuration and Fealty as prescribed by King George III, similar to those required by George II. The following men were of Beekman or from families that settled here, with the date they took the oaths:
      1760 1 April; Abraham Losee, Captain.
