                                SARATOGA COUNTY, NEW YORK  
Extracted by Jere Hagadorn from County Historian records.
  In a letter the Rev.Mr. Drummond is introduced as a spiritual guide for the Schuylers at
Saratoga, he was ordained in Scotland.  This meeting house stood 1/3 mile south of Fish
Creek fork of River Road and the Victory Road.  This old Dutch Church was built in 1771.
It was here after the services of April 30, 1775, the people of the neighborhood heard from
the lips of Gen Schuyler, the news of Lexington and Concord.  This was also used as a
British Hospital, and in this church a young lady sitting by a north window was shot by an
American Sharp Shooter and her blood stained the floor as long as the church stood.  This
church was damaged several days later by several cannon balls shot from British
batteries.  It was afterwards used as a commissionary depot.  It was re-organized after the
war and for the first time stoves were put in.  The church was taken down in 1822.
First list of members of the church (this I haven't copied completely as given) G.V. From
1790 on into 1880's.
