excerpts from July 28 1920 Fulton Patriot

The sons of Peter Schenck, Edward and Herman, volunteered early in the Civil war. Herman was killed at a spring while taking a drink of water, by a cowardly rebel. Edward fought
to the close of the war and remained for three or four years in Washington. Peter Schenck, and his brother, William Schenck, migrated up the Hudson and to Oswego Falls, now Fulton, in the early 19th century. Peter and William Schenck were two of the 12 trustees of Falley seminary at its erection in 1850. Peter Schenck, a highly regarded surveyor, with the assistance of Dr. Moses L. Lee, was employed in 1853 to survey, layout and map 12 acres on the northwest side of the property.

Jacob Schenck, who came to Oswego Falls in 1810, was one of the prominent pioneers, and his sons, John, William and Peter, had a like standing in the community. (History of Fulton NY)
