From DAR, Vol. 7, 1926-1927: Unpublished Family Bible Records together with Genealogical Notes and Other Unpublished Data. Page 295--"My grandfather, George Schrembling was killed & scalped in his own house near Schoharie Creek. (Then called Fort Hunter), during the war. My mother & an older sister sat hid in some hazel bushes near the house, heard the yell & war-whoop, but were not aware that their father was in the house for he had once left it, but had probably returned to it for the purpose of getting something out he had forgotten. My grandmother died of old age & cancer of the upper lip; the rest of the family practically died of consumption." From: Henry Z. Jones, Jr., The Palatine Families of New York (A Study of the German Immigrants Who Arrived in Colonial New York in 1710). 1985, Universal City, CA. Pgs. 926-927. "Georg (Ehle Record, as the only s/o Henrich). Yurry Scrimling was a freeholder at Canajoharrie in 1763 (Albany Co. Freeholders). He md. Catharine Jung (Ehle Record). Papers in the estate of George Schremling of Tryon Co., were issued 19 Aug 1782. George inherited the old homestead, probably the one mentioned in History Montgomery & Fulton Counties, p. 95 (HJ). Mrs. Ehle's list of the ch. of Georg is given in her record. "Once again, the missing Mohawk Chbks., particularly Canajoharie registers, make a complete Schrembling family structure difficult. Mrs. Ehle's record adds the [sic] a d/o Henrich md. a Bowman and another d/o Henrich md. a Cramer. A Hendrick Schremeling was a freeholder at Canajoharrie in 1763 (Albany Co. Freeholders); perhaps this entry refers to Henrich at an advanced age, or to Henrich, whom Mrs. Ehle states was a s/o Georg (HJ). Serjeant Henry Shrimling and Private Henry Shrimling were in Lieut. Goshin Van Alstein's Company 8 Aug. 1763 (Report of the State Historian, Vol. II, p. 797); entries for two of the same name such as this one makes me wonder if Mrs. Ehle was correct in stating that Georg was the only s/o the emigrant Henrich, and that perhaps there may have been a Henrich Schrembling (HJ). A Matthew Schremling of Mohawk and a Theobold Schremling of Canajoharie both are noted in lists of Loyalists confiscated property; perhaps they were related to the Tory Schrembling mentioned on page 423 of Simm's History of Schoharie (HJ). The family is also noted in Maryly B. Penrose's fine " 'Mohawk Valley in the Revolution.'" A History of Otego by Stuart B. Blakey, Crist, Scott & Parshall, Cooperstown, NY, 1933. Page 37--"There is a tract of 1000 acres in the Wallace patent about the mouth of the Otego creek, about which there has been much speculation. It belonged to Sir William Johnson before his death in 1774. It was called his "Dreamland Tract," tradition saying that it had been given him, because of a dream that he had, by King Hendricks of the Mohawks. The author has made a special effort to trace the early history of this piece of land, but has been only partially successful. It was sold by Hugh Wallace and Gouldsbrow Banyar to Sr. William Johnson between 1770 and 1773. The reason why Johnson desired and bought his bit of land at this place is obscure, but would be the most interesting thing about it. On 5 March 1776 it was conveyed by John Johnson, son of Sr. William, to GEORGE SCRAMLING and Adam Young. The late Allen Scramling told the author that this tract of 1000 acres, 800 of which was on the north side and 200 on the south side of the river all finally came into the SCRAMLING family and was possessed by the three brothers as follows: What is known as the John Van Woert place and the west 100 acres on the south side of the river were owned by David; the land west of this place and also north on the Otego creek was owned by HENRY, the west line of his holdings being the west line of what is known as the Nelson Cole place, what is known as the Peter Van Woert farm, where Roberts and Tyler live, and the other 100 acres on the south side of the river were owned by George. The later history of the tract is very complex." Page 45--"About 1787 the tide of immigration began to come in. The first settlements were among the river and on its south side. It is to be marked that the first sesttlers were of Dutch and German extraction from Albany and Schoharie counties and the Mohawk valley. Among them are found such names as Winn, Mericle, SCRAMLING, Calder, Snouse, Wiles Vanderweiker, HESS, Overhuyser, Quackenboss, Bovie, Brimmer and Youmans." The Old New York Frontier, 1614-1800 by Francis Whiting Halsey, Chas. Scribner's Sons, NY, 1902: Page 334--"Van Der Werker had been in the valley with HENRY SCRAMLING before the war, and with SCRAMLING returned as soon as the conflict ceased. With SCRAMLING came his two brothers DAVID and GEORGE, and their brothers-in-law, David and John Young. During the war, the father of the SCRAMLINGS had been killed by the Indians, and David and George had been in Canada as captives. David's wife had also been a prisoner." History of Schoharie County and boarder Wars of New York by Jeptha R. Simms, A Heritage Classic, 1991 (reprinted) Page 423--"The citizens of Cadaughrity built temporary huts next day, and erected log dwellings soon after, in which they passed the winter. Leaving the Schoharie valley the enemy entered that of the Mohawk. They avoided Fort Hunter, from which they were fired upon, approaching no nearer to it in a body, than the present residence of Richard Hudson, distant half a mile or more. At the latter place there resided a German named SCHREMBLING, who, although a Tory, chanced to be outside of his house, and being unknown, was killed and scalped; his family were however left undistributed." _____________________ Pension Application for George Scrambling (Scremling) R.9323 State of Michigan Washtenau County SS.

(Signed) George Scremling Sworn and Subscribed the day and year first aforesaid before me. A. M. Gould Dept’y Clerk. Letter of inquiry dated August 15, 1938, in the pension folder. Reference is made to your letter in which you request the Revolutionary War records of Peter Scramling who was killed at the battle of Oriskany; Lieutenant Henry Scramling and David Scramling, both of whom served in the Tryon County, New York Militia and were buried near Oneonta, New York (their surname being variously spelled). The Revolutionary War records of this office have been searched carefully under all spellings of the surname Scremling and no claim for pension or bounty land found based upon service in that war of any of the soldiers named above. The only one of the surname found was George Scramling or Scremling whose record follows as found in pension claim, R. 9323, based upon service in the Revolutionary War. It is hoped that this record may prove of interest to you in your research. George Scrembling or Scremling applied for pension February 3, 1837, while living in Pitt Township, Washtenaw County, Michigan, to which he moved in 1833 from Otsego, Otsego County, New York. He alleged that while a resident of Tryon County, New York, he volunteered in 1778 or 1779 for a term of nine months, served as a private in Captain Gross’ company, Colonel Gansevoort’s New York regiment; that upon the expiration of that term of enlistment, he enlisted for another term of nine months under the same officers, stationed at Fort Plain and along the frontiers off the Mohawk River in Tryon County; that he next served a tour in Captain Saben’s Company, Colonel Wayne’s regiment, and in Captain Mabie’s company, Colonel Veeder’s New York regiment, that he was in the battle of Johnstown in Montgomery County, near the close of the war went on an expedition against Oswego Fort under Colonel Willett in the New York troops and was in an engagement at a place then called Turlock but later Sharon, in Schoharie, formerly a part of Montgomery County, New York, in which engagement Captain McKean was killed. He alleged that he served to the close of the Revolution when he was discharged by Colonel Willett. George Scrambling’s claim for pension was not allowed as he failed to furnish proof of service in accordance with the requirements of the pension law. It is not stated in the claim whether the soldier ever married. In 1837, George Scrambling’s nephew, David Scrambling, age not given, was a resident of Washtwnaw County, Michigan. _______ Upstate New York in the 1760s Tax Lists and Selected Militia Rolls of Old Albany Couty 1760-1768 by Florence Christoph, Picton Press, Camden, Maine pg. 134 Canajoharie, N.Y.
