Note: urch of Schenectady, N.Y. He joined the King's Rangers at St. John's, Quebec, on Aug. 9, 1781, at which time he was shown as being from Ballston, N.Y. His step-brother, Francis Van der Bogart, from Schenectady, enlisted on the same day. Joseph was listed on several muster rolls of the King's Rangers until his discharge at Cataraqui, Ontario, in Oct. 1784. He returned to the States to marry Catherine Bovee, on Dec. 3, 1787, at the First Presbyterian Church of Ballston, Saratoga County, N.Y. Both were recorded as being from Freehold. A footnote on the film on which this marriage was recorded stated that the Church of Freehold, located at the small town of Charlton, N.Y., had amalgamated with the First Presbyterian Church of Ballston, N.Y. Charlton is a small town located about midway between Ballston & Schenectady. Their stay in N.Y was short-lived for their first child, John, was baptized by Rev. John Langhorn, in Fredericksburgh Tp., Addington Co., Ontario, approximately ten months after their marriage. For his loyalty to the British Crown during the American Revolution, Joseph received a free grant of land on Con. 1, Lot 7, Fredericksburgh Tp., Addington County. He remained there until 1801 and then moved to Ameliasburg Tp., Prince Edward County, Ontario, where he received a lease for Con. 3 Lot 106. In 1818, Joseph bought more land on Con. 3 consisting of Lots 107, 108, 109 & 110. He sold Lot 106 in 1834 and in July 1836 his name was shown on the quit claim for the remaining property. The date of his death, or where he was living at that time, is currently unknown. It appears that he died sometime after 1836.
