    [A painting of COL Johannes Knickerbocker Jr. and his wife, Rebecca Fonda, appeared in from Harper's Magazine, Vol. 54 (Dec. 1876), p.42; reproduced from a painting in the east room of the old Knickerbocker Mansion at Schaghticoke; [Johannes Sr. built the Knickerbocker Mansion (25 miles northeast of Albany) after 1709 with boards from his own sawmill; Johannes Jr. is in the SAR Patriot Index Edition III; he is the younger brother of Wouter Johannes Knickerbocker b. 1712, who married Elizabeth Fonda (Rebecca's cousin) in 1735; Johannes was a COL, commanding the 14th Albany Co. Regiment of NY Militia, Gen. Ten Broeck's Brigade; he was wounded at Saratoga, 16-Oct-1777 and he died in 1802; This is J. F. Knickerbacker's account of his great grandfather: "He was engaged in several of the Indian wars of the Colony and was attached to the staff of Lord Howe in the expedition against Ticonderoga in 1758. He was Commissioned COL October 20, 1775, and fought under General Arnold at the Battle of Saratoga where he was wounded in the right arm. He was a member of the State Legislature in 1792 and died August 16th, 1802."The present register of the Dutch Church at Schaghticoke begins with the date of marriage of Col. Knickerbacker taken from some older book saying that he was married by Rev. Theo. Frielinghuysen and that his wife was the daughter of Col. Claes Fonda. No military record higher than that of sergeant seems attached to the name of Claes Fonda, but he was Constable in Albany in 1706 and High Constable the following year, so perhaps "Col." should read "Con." Of Rebecca Fonda, the church record states that her life was full of "good works and almsdeeds which she did." The stones of both these excellent people are in good order over their graves in the family graveyard at Schaghticoke, close to a quiet road which is too far from the center of things to be much of a thoroughfare.]
