    Census and notes on McCREERY-McCRARY in Montgomery County
    Historical note for Palatine, Johnstown, St Johnsville and Montgomery/Fulton County
    Note:Palatine is between St. Johnsville and Johnstown.
    Johnstown is in between Palatine and Amsterdam
    (All within only a couple miles each other Today, but most of these McCrary's - McCreery's could have actually remained in the same place as the borders changed around them.)
    Part of Montgomery County became Fulton County,NY. part of Palatine ( Oppenheim on Route 29 near Crum Creek. (

    Part of Oppenheim became St, Johnsville in 1838).
    Johnstown became part of Montgomery County when the name of Tryon County was changed to honor the Continental General Richard Montgomery
    In 1838, Johnstown's county affiliation changed yet again when what by then remained of Mongomery County was divided into two separate counties: Montgomery and Fulton.

    St. Johnsville got its name.
    Originally called "Zimmerman's," in 1770.
    The name St. Johnsville was not adopted officially until 1838, the
    year Fulton County separated itself from Montgomery, forcing the
    creation of a new township, St. Johnsville, separate from the Town of
    Oppenheim across the county line. But the name St. Johnsville goes
    back to the year 1818, when Henry Lloyd, a West St. Johnsville
    storekeeper, newly appointed by President Monroe as postmaster, called
    a public meeting which decided to call the new post-office by that
    name named after St Johns Church. The site of this church was within
    the limits of the Palatine District. This district was formed as the
    town of Palatine, on March 7, 1770;
