“The New York State Constitutional Convention - The Foundation for a Nation”

On September 18 afternoon, at 2:00 pm in the Chancellor Livingston NSDAR Chapter House, (the General Richard Montgomery and Janet Livingston House in Rhinebeck: 77 Livingston Street Rhinebeck, NY 12572) guest speaker Paul O'Neil will discuss the NYS State Constitutional Convention in the City of Kingston NY.

On March 6, 1777, a group of extraordinary individuals met in Kingston to determine the future of New York. What they achieved led not only to the birth of New York State but laid the building blocks for a brave new nation. These men, whose number included the first Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, the author of the phrase “We the People...” in the United States Constitution and the man responsible for the Louisiana Purchase, pledged their fortunes, their futures, in fact their very lives, for the ideal that freedom and democracy should be the guiding precedent for all government. Come join us as we learn about this seminal event in our city, our state, and our nation’s history.

The public is invited.

Bio Blurb: Paul O’Neill is a amateur local historian who grew up in New Paltz. He graduated from George Washington University Law School and practiced law in New Paltz and then in Kingston for 15 years, including 14 years as an Assistant District Attorney for Ulster County. He is currently Commissioner of Jurors for Ulster County.

On May 15 at 2:00 pm, at the General Richard Montgomery & Janet Livingston House, 77 Livingston Street, Rhinebeck, NY 12572, Al Trezza will be discussing The Red Hook Society for the Apprehension and Detention of Horse Thieves, formed in 1796. Public immunized against Covid 19 are invited to attend.

The Red Hook Society for the Apprehension and Detention of Horse Thieves

Originated in what is now Upper Red Hook, The Town of Red Hook was formed

some 17 years later in 1813.)

By periodically posting and publishing the members names, the society sought to ward off potential rustlers. The theory was that a thief would keep clear of any horse belonging to a society member because pursuit would be certain.

WHAT HAPPENED IN 1796

* US President George Washington issued his Farewell Address (Which warns against partisan politics and foreign entanglements....)
* John Adams defeats Thomas Jefferson in US Presidential election
* Tennessee became the 16th State
* The Red Hook Society for the Apprehension and Detention of Horse Thieves is Born
_____________

The last time anyone called on the society to track a stolen horse was in 1917, while Henry Ford was busy causing stables to be converted into garages.

There has not been a horse theft in years.

A Columbia County mule went missing in the 1930s, but came home by itself. About 10 years ago, a couple of horses were stolen from a local breeding farm, but police didn't call on the volunteers for help. "I think they figured the troopers could do a better job," society secretary said. And "with the state of modern law enforcement we don't take things into our own hands any more."

It all started when eastern New York was still on the frontier and horse thieves roamed the farm country along the Hudson River. A horse then was practically part of the family, essential to both transportation and farm work. "You could probably get away with stealing a man's wife easier than stealing a man's horse.. If you lost your horse, you lost your heart." Unable to afford full-time posses, the farming villages formed societies--not unlike volunteer fire departments--to trail horse thieves. Each year, the societies elected riders who would be called in when a horse was stolen. The Columbia County society paid its riders $2 a day while they were on the trail. Red Hook riders earned more money the farther they rode. They got a bonus if they trailed a horse thief out of Dutchess County and brought the bandit back home. The societies also acted as insurers. They paid farm families to replace stolen horses. As automobiles and tractors replaced horses in the early 1900s, most of the horse theft societies folded. On today's thoroughbred farms there are few worries about stolen horse flesh. It's tough to launder a stud horse because its value depends on careful documentation of its parentage.The Columbia County society still has its noose for hanging horse thieves, but no member can recall when--or if--it was used. "I've always had the feeling they didn't hang them around here like they did in the Wild West."

LIFE LONG RHINEBECK RESIDENT AWARDED THE NSDAR HISTORIC PRESERVATION MEDAL

Nancy V. Kelly, a member of the New York State Daughters of the American Revolution Chancellor Livingston Chapter (Rhinebeck) since 1967, was awarded the NSDAR Historic Preservation Medal May 16 at the Rhinebeck Reformed Church. This is the most prestigious preservation award the National Society presents to individuals who have done extraordinary volunteer work in historic preservation over a long period of time. Nancy’s commitment to the historic preservation of the Town of Rhinebeck , the Hudson Valley and the State of New York, her efforts to preserve early records and organization of early town records is truly outstanding. Very few of these awards are presented each year through-out the United States.

The medal was presented to Nancy Kelly by Pamela Barrack, DAR New York State Vice Regent, Clare Kelly, her daughter, and the Regent of the Chancellor Livingston Chapter, Joann Schmidt.

According to her daughter, Nancy Kelly, an eleventh generation New Yorker, a graduate of Cornell University, and a retired Home Economics teacher, is an author (Rhinebeck’s Historic Architecture; A Brief History of Rhinebeck: The Living Past of a Hudson Valley Community).

She was a leader in the founding of the Consortium of Rhinebeck History, as well as a charter member and chair in creating an online digital database for digital records. She also established a Local History Room at the Rhinebeck’s Starr Library for manuscripts available to the public.

In addition, Ms. Kelly and her husband, Arthur Kelly, whom she met at Cornell University, started Kinship, a genealogy enterprise in 1968. They preserved vital church records of early settlers and subsequent generations. They became charter members of The Dutchess County Genealogical Society in 1972, and were founding members of the New York Chapter of Palatines to America in 1975 (German American settlers). She helped establish the Museum of Rhinebeck History in 1992, now housed in the 1798 Quitman House, and helped preserve the Palatine Farmstand. She also has served eleven years on the Rhinebeck Town Board, overseeing changes to the zoning code.

June 10th Meeting: Gale Sigloch, Owner of Golden Chances Antiques

The Chancellor Livingston Chapter of The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) is holding a meeting on June 10, at 7 PM in the Richard Montgomery Chapter House, at 77 Livingston in Rhinebeck. This meeting is open to the public and we are pleased to have Gale Sigloch, owner of Golden Chances Antiques as the speaker for the evening meeting.

Gale, a member of Chancellor Livingston, grew up in England accompanying her mother to various antiques markets and assisting in her shop and at shows. Gale developed a fascination for the Victorian era and how people lived during that time. That interest blossomed into her business of buying and selling English Victorian silver and silver-plate along with many other period items. Now primarily living in Texas with her husband, she is active in her business, exhibiting at many antiques shows, including Barn Star’s Antiques at Rhinebeck.

Gale has invited attendees to bring a piece of antique silver or silver-plate to the meeting where she will date and identify its original use. Light refreshments will follow the speaker segment of the meeting. For further information, find us on Facebook, or call 845-876-2765.
