  • Notes 
    • “Conrad” was acknowledged by Ripley’s Believe It or Not, 10 Nov 1935, for having 26 sons and grandsons serving in General Washington’s army. Another son, Jacob, was a tory.
      -----

      "Conrad Cunterman, with Hartman Windecker and Casper Leyp, was granted 2000 acres 3 miles south of the Mohawk in 1730 (NY Land Paper, Vol X & XI). A tract of 905 acres was granted to Coenradt Gunterman 13 Oct 1753 in the present town of Minden (History of Montgomery & Fulton Counties, NY, p 73).
      ------

      He came with his parents to America when he was about 9 years old. They landed on Nutters Island 13 jun 1710, with Rev. Kocherthal's second and last group of Palatine immigrants. He lived with his parents on the west bank of the Hudson River.
Later we find him in the Mohawk Valley, in the Conjaharie district, what was then Albany county, later Tryon, and now Montgomery county, at Minden. 12 nov. 1751. King George of England granted 200 acres of land in Tryon on the south side of the Mohawk river, to him and two other men, reserving for the crown all trees over 2 feet in diameter for shipmasts. The men divided the land evenly his share of the land; his son George later erected the settler's stockade and Fort Willet.
His last will was dated 1768 and probated 6 may 1777.
