Notes
a. Note:   George Rhicard descends from one of John David Reichert's children. Copied from the Stanbridge 1890-1990 book (Typed by Dianne Rhicard and sent to me.) The Rhicard (Reichert) Family written by Flora J. Primmerman Rhicard The name Reichert is of German origin. The first Joseph Reichert sailed to America on the Lion and arrived at West Camp, N.Y. in 1710. He was a widower and one of his fellow passengers was Anna Maria Travers whose husband died on board ship. On January 9, 1711 Joseph and Maria were married. They had two sons, both born in West Camp, the eldest dying in infancy. The second child, John David, was born in 1714 and that same year the family found a permanent home in Rhinebeck. John David married Elizabeth Schafer and had 11 children. The eldest, Joseph, 1738-1812, married Caterina (Catherine) Feller. During the American Revolution this Joseph, grandson of the first, was a lieutenant in the British Army in the Regiment of Col. Ten Brock. After the war, Joseph, like many United Empire Loyalists was determined to live on British soil. In 1786 he bought 306 acres of land from George Feller. This land supposedly in Canada, had been improved by Feller in 1784 and 1785. Later it was learned that it was "...two miles east of Missiskouie Bay, south adjoining the Province Line..." This put it in Vermont on the present road between St. Armand and Saxe's Mills. In 1795 Joseph sold this property to Nathaniel Coffin for 300 Spanish dollars. By that time he was lining north of Pigeon Hill where, in 1792, he paid Thomas Dunn for 603 acres. The date 1792 does not tell when Joseph came to Pigeon Hill. None of the local settlers were able to obtain a legal deed until 1792. Joseph and Caterina had 13 children, 12 born in Rhinebeck. Abraham (Abram), the youngest, is listed as born in Vermont. Over the years the spelling of Reichert changed. Descendants of Joseph and Caterina use the following spelling: Rhicard, Rychard, Richard, Rycard, Rykerd, Record, Rickert, Richert, etc.....
