Historical Note:

Samuel Ludlow Frey (1833-1924), a resident of Palatine Bridge, Montgomery County, New York, was an antiquarian and writer on the Mohawks and the Mohawk Valley from its early settlement through the revolution. His publications include the annotated The Minute Book of the Committee of Safety of Tryon County (New York: Dodd, Mead, 1905).

Frey was descended from one of the early settlers to Montgomery County, Hendrick Frey of Zurich, Switzerland, who arrived to the Mohawk Valley in 1689. Hendrick's son, Henry Frey, Jr. (1712-1763), a surveyor, fathered Barent, Col. Hendrick (?-1820) (the ancestor of Senator Roscoe Conkling) and Major John Frey (1740-1833). John Frey was one of the founders and chairmen of the Tyron County Committee of Safety, a military officer (fighting at Oriskany), a member of both the Senate and Assembly, and a justice of the peace, among other appointments. Both Hendrick and John married relatives of General Nicholas Herkimer. Several members of the family were lawyers, including John, his son, Henry I., and nephew, Philip R. Frey. John H. Frey was employed at the customs house in New York City.

A touching family portrait emerges from the documents of the family of Samuel Ludlow Frey's grandmother, Elizabeth (Van Schaack) Frey, Mrs. Henry I. Frey. Cornelius Van Schaack, a merchant residing in Kinderhook, Columbia County, was descended from Dutch ancestors. He had seven children, among them Henry Van Schaack (1733-1823), an Albany and Kinderhook merchant and public official, and Peter Van Schaack (1747-1832), Elizabeth Frey's father. Peter Van Schaack was educated at Kings College (Columbia University), New York City, where in 1765 he married Elizabeth Cruger, daughter of Henry Cruger, a New York City merchant, against her parents' wishes. A 1767 letter from Henry Cruger, Jr., welcomes Elizabeth Van Schaack back into the family's graces. (See Elizabeth Van Schaack's correspondence.) Peter Van Schaack began his career in law in New York City, first with Peter Silvester, then William Smith. He joined the bar of the Supreme Court in 1769. In 1770, a discussion group was formed by New York City lawyers called "the moot" and included William Smith, John M. Scott, John Jay Egbert Benson, Robert R. Livingston, Jr., James Duane, Gouverneur Morris, and Peter Van Schaack.

In 1775 the Peter Van Schaack family removed to Kinderhook due to the ill health of some if its members, six of his children having died within four years, two of them in 1775. Peter Van Schaack refused to sign the Articles of Association in Support of the Revolution, opposing the use of force, which had dire effects on his family. In 1777, Van Schaack was banished to Boston and Leominster, Massachusetts, but he returned within a few months. Elizabeth (Cruger) Van Schaack was taken ill in 1775 and, because of security reasons involving the American and British conflict, she was denied, in 1778, permission to travel to New York City, a British stronghold, nor the attendance of her doctor, Dr. John McNamara Hayes, who served in the British Army. (See correspondence between Peter Van Schaack and John McNamara Hayes.) Elizabeth C. Van Schaack died in April 1778 after which Peter Van Schaack wrote an account of her final hours, attributing the cause in part to the effect of the loss of several children on her health, and of her forgiveness of John Jay for denying her permission to return to New York City where she was raised and where her friends and church were located. (See biographical and genealogical notes.)

In June 1778, Van Schaack appeared before the Commissioners in Albany, New York, in regards to the Banishing Act passed in 1778. He was granted, by Governor George Clinton, permission to travel to England for a cataract operation, embarking that October. Left behind were the Van Schaacks' three surviving children: Henry (Harry), Cornelius (Buck), and Elizabeth (Betsy). During this time he wrote of his concern for their education and of Elizabeth (Cruger) Van Schaack's wish that their daughter, Elizabeth, receive her clothes. (See financial and legal documents.) Fearing the volatile climate in America and the continuous deterioration of his eyesight, Peter Van Schaack remained in England. It appears that the children were in the separate care of various Cruger and Van Schaack relations, primarily Peter's sister, Jane Silvester.

Peter Van Schaack's citizenship was restored in 1784 and he returned in 1785, resuming the practice of law in 1786 until 1832. Peter Van Schaack's correspondence with his daughter spans her years as a teenager into her early twenties, 1791-1798 (See correspondence between Elizabeth Van Schaack Frey and Peter Van Schaack). During this time Peter Van Schaack lost his beloved eldest son, Henry, aged 29, in 1797. Peter Van Schaack had a second family, marrying, in ca. 1789, Elizabeth Van Allen, who died in 1813 at the age of 48. They had several children, among them John, who died in 1811 at the age of 20; Henry Cruger, the family chronicler; Lydia; Peter; and David. Peter Van Schaack died in 1832 in Kinderhook, New York. The Life of Peter Van Schaack, LL.D., Embracing Selections from His Correspondence and Other Writings during the American Revolution and His Exile in England (New York: D. Appleton and Co., 1842) and Memoirs of the Life of Henry Van Schaack Embracing Selections from His Correspondence during the American Revolution (Chicago: A.C. McClurg, Co., 1892). Henry Cruger Van Schaack (1802-1887), an antiquarian, collected the papers of Henry Van Schaack, John Frey, Matthew Vischer, John Jay and others from the Revolutionary era. (See the Henry Cruger Van Schaack Papers (SC13564) which contains several papers of his father, Peter Van Schaack.))

David Ludlow, the grandfather of Samuel Ludlow Frey, settled in Kinderhook, Columbia County, New York, in 1784. He married, Phebe [Pheby] Baldwin and their children, Samuel (1791), Maria (1795), Henry Gilbert (1797), Maria (1798), and Caroline (1804, born 1803), were baptized in the Reformed Dutch Church of Kinderhook. Papers related to the Ludlows include an 1803 slave bill of sale for a woman named Mariana or Marayawn to Daniel Ludlow; Phebe Ludlow's record of stock (1821) in the Kinderhook Library; a record of marriages solemnized by H[enry] G[ilbert] Ludlow that includes a few deaths in Poughkeepsie, New York, for 1828-1840, which mentions John Frey's marriage to Caroline Ludlow on June 17, 1828. (See financial and legal documents.) The History of Poughkeepsie, from the Earliest Settlements, 1683-1905 by Edmund Platt, has Reverend Henry G. Ludlow dedicating the Presbyterian Church in 1851 and a cemetery in 1853.

Scope and Content Note:

The Samuel Ludlow Frey Papers consist of documents related to the Frey and collateral families as well as documents (primarily deeds, notes, and writings) he used in his research on the history of the Mohawk Valley. Several members of the Frey family were lawyers, hence, there is a strong representation of court-related papers, introducing personalities outside of the Frey family and Samuel Ludlow Frey's interest in early Montgomery County history.

The Biographical and Genealogical Series consists of a few genealogical charts of the Astor; Bingham; Kirkland; Schuyler, Van Rensselaer, Van Cortland, and Livingston; Cruger and Van Schaack; Washington; and Yates families. It is unclear whether these are related families or families that Samuel Ludlow Frey was researching in his writings of the Mohawk Valley. It has been written that Samuel Ludlow Frey published a Frey genealogy, but it has not been located at the writing of this finding aid. There is also a brief memoir by Peter Van Schaack on the death of his wife, Elizabeth (Cruger) Van Schaack who died in April 1778.

The Correspondence Series (1761-1912) is primarily family correspondence involving the Frey (Montgomery County), and Van Schaack, and Cruger (Kinderhook, Columbia County) families. Justice Alfred Conkling and his son, Senator Roscoe Conkling, were second (by marriage) and third cousins, respectively, of John H. and Samuel Ludlow Frey. There is also a second grouping of the Bingham, Kirkland (Oneida County) and Shaduck families, primarily of Windham, Windham County, Connecticut. It is unclear how the two groups are connected. Jerusha Bingham Kirkland was the wife of Reverend Samuel Kirkland, missionary to the Oneida and Seneca. Some of the Binghams and Kirklands moved to central New York and may have married into the Frey family. Jerusha Kirkland traveled from her mission home to be with her mother in Windham, Connecticut, for the birth of her children, but was forced to have them at General Herkimer's residence in Fall Hill, Herkimer County. The Herkimers were related to the Freys. There are also some letters to and from the Jelles Fonda family of Caughnawaga, Montgomery County, New York. Jelles Fonda (1727-1791) was a merchant and early settler to the Mohawk Valley area and connected to the Freys through business and land dealings. Some correspondence concerns land matters.

The Financial and Legal Series (1725-1910) consists of accounts, bills, receipts, and miscellaneous documents concerning New York State and Montgomery County legislation; a statement by Peter Van Schaack on the dispersal of his wife's clothes upon her death in 1778 and again by Van Schaack on his wishes for his children's education; documents pertaining to the 138th Regiment of the New York State Militia in 1714; commission papers for Willem Van den Boetselaer (1725) and Carel Van Boetselaer (1786), in Dutch; a record of marriages solemnized by H.G. Ludlow, along with notes on deaths, in Poughkeepsie (1826-1848); and two slave bills of sale for women in Columbia and [Montgomery?] counties (1803, 1819). Various Frey family members were New York State lawyers and justices of the peace. The remainder of the documents in this series involves court matters: admissions to bail, affidavits, award, complaints, pleas, orders, summons, writs and four volumes of registers belonging to John Frey, Henry I. Frey and the firm of Frey and Van Schaack. A Peter A. Walradt is frequently mentioned in some of the documents.

The Land Papers Series (1706-1835) consists primarily of deeds with a few field notes and maps. The deeds are for the most part of Montgomery and surrounding counties arranged mostly alphabetically by names most prominent to the connection, including, Bingham, (Windham, Connecticut), Fonda, Frey, Van Schaack, and Van Slyck, on whose patent the first Hendrick Frey settled in 1689 in what is now Palatine, Montgomery County, New York. Some of the deeds appear to have been collected by Samuel Ludlow Frey for his research on the Mohawk Valley and feature signatures he deemed worth noting, being a prominent name or family relation.

Hendrick (Henry) Frey Jr. was a surveyor but only one map (Item 132) of the eleven in this collection is attributed to him. The maps are of the Alexander; Canajoharie; Caughnawaga; Gros, Fonda, Oothoudt, Livingston; and Van Slyck patents in Montgomery County; the Chase Patent in Fulton County; and the Henderson, Young, Lindsay, and Livingston patents in Herkimer County, New York.

The Miscellaneous Series (1748-1775) contains a hymn and an unattributed sermon as well as sermons from Stanford, [Dutchess County], 1748-1773. There is a sheet of paper with these latter sermons stamped with the New York State document number and penciled Augustus W[heelock?] Bingham. The only Augustus Wheelock Bingham in Theodore A. Bingham's The Bingham Family in the United States lived from 1764 to 1858.

The Printed Material Series (1800-1885) is made up of a few broadsides and hand bills regarding campaigns, elections, and a notice of the funeral of U.S. Grant.

The Writings Series (1826-1838) includes the poetry of an Anna C. to Elisabeth Frey of Palatine and by Nathaniel Shaduck, the brother of Hannah (Mrs. Ralph) Bingham. There is also a fragment of a letter draft, dated 1838, by T[homas] H[ulsford?] Bingham requesting the President to bestow an honor on Washington.

The Writings and Research Series (1888-1916) consists of correspondence, notes and papers by Samuel Ludlow Frey on the Mohawks and the settlement of the Mohawk Valley. It also contains a photograph of the Reformed Dutch Church in Stone Arabia and photographs of an archaeological dig at Garoga, [Fulton County?], New York.
