  • Notes 
    • The Grave stone of one George Yerdon who died July 2, 1860 Age 81 years, 7 months and 17 days old is in Brier Hill Cemetery. This writer believes this George to be the same George born Nov 20, 1778 in Stone Arabia, Montgomery County, New York, and who married Elizabeth Dygart (buried next to him in Brier Hill) and had 8 children listed as baptized from 1800-1817 in St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Minden, NY, and alternately is listed as "Johann George, and George" in these records, with Yerdon spelled variously. Records were abstracted by June Walker in October 1982 from copies in the NYS Library, and from Records at Fonda, NY.
      Baptismal record lists him as Johann George, son of "Johann George Jordan and Anna Maria". This was in Lutheran Trinity Church, Stone Arabia, NY. Baptized on Nov. 29, 1778, Godparents listed as George Pletz & Anna ; He was baptized under name "Jordan" despite his Father using "Yerdon" more regularly (Sylvia Wilson abstracts, 1990s)
      Johan George lived in Palatine Township in his early years. In 1810 census he is in Canajoharie Twp., Montgomery County, New York. In 1820 Census the family is living in Minden Township, Montgomery County, New York. In 1830 they are not definatively placed. In 1840 the family is in Morrtistown, St. Lawrence County, New York. In 1850 listed as George, our subject is listed as 71 in Morristown Census, with wife Elizabeth (72) and a Lena Yerdon (11) who may be a grandchild.
      While records exist for most of the children by their baptism, there is no baptismal record yet found for Peter G. Yerdon, so we cannot definitely link him as a son. This writer feels that the preponderance of evidence available---his middle name, the names of his children, where Peter moved to (Morristown and later Redfield and Back, always with the other families next door.) that he is most certainly a son of George and Elizabeth. We will go out on a limb and include the family record herein. One wonders if the first child "Johannes George" died -----or is in fact Peter? There most certainly were not two John Yerdons in the same family at the same time, maybe the second child John was named after the 1st one that died?
