Nicholas Van Schaick
Perhaps he was the "Nicholas Van Schaack" who was accorded a land bounty right in conjunction with the Albany militia regiment. Another, same-named contemporary was associated with the Coxsackie regiment.
This individual appears to not have married (at least within his Albany context). However, his personal property was valued under the assessments of his father's household. His younger brother also was considered under their father's holdings but married in 1791 and set up his own household nearby.
In 1788, an inventory showed that he owed £2.7 to the estate of a neighbor.
In 1799, his personal property was valued under his father's first ward holdings. By 1800, this individual was no longer showned under his father's first ward household. At that time, he would have been about forty years old.
