Book of the Freeholders
City and County of Albany
Johannes Van der Heyden
Over the years, this list has appeared in a number of formats. The transcription used above was made many years ago (probably during the 1950s or 60s) by my academic mentor, Sung Bok Kim - long-time professor of history at the University at Albany. He fixed the date as 1763 and noted that he copied it from the "John Tabor Kempe Papers" at the New-York Historical Society. His particular ranscription is included here for sentimental reasons and because it first made me think about the value of community surveys - way before I ever dreamed about systematically studying anything except all-you-can-eat buffets!
