Notes
a. Note:   rical Society, 1984. Page 61. See Notes Section for paragraph. Pgs. 60-61. "Johannes Neer, born October 7, 1757, in Rhinebeck Flatts, New York, had married Christina Keller before he followed hisfather and the rest of his family to a rather dubious place of safety, just across the eventual boundary line between the newly-formed United States and Canada. Thirty years later, having finally been given title to the land he had claime, Johannes (now known as John) Neer built himself a sturdy log house on Dutch Road, not far from friends Peter Rosenberger and John Ploss. Moore's Corner (St. Armand) became the nearest post office, although at first mail went to Saxe's Mills (Highgate, Vt.) Here he and his wife Christiana, born in Hoosick River, New York, had their eight children, most of whom married other Palatine descendants, and settled nearby. His Uncle Frederick, who had wedded Anna Maria Krans, in Kinderhook, New York, in 1793, followed the rest of the family to St. Armand West, and John's seven cousins also greq up in the neighborhood. Before he died in 1840, John Neer built a larger home, this time of red brick, and several barns; he willed his property to his wife, Christiana. She, in turn, willed it to her grand-daughter, Harriet McDonald, and her husband, George Harvey Jones. Harriet was one of six daughters of Asenath Rosanna Neer, who had been born in the log housse on Dutch Road on May 27, 1800. Asenath's husband was Benjamin McDonald, the son of Jacob McDonald and Catherine Hauver, later Catherine Rosenberger. Another daughter, Hannah, Married George Jones' brother Edwin, and lived on the McDonald property, also on Dutch Road."
