Conrad Cramer (originally Conradt Kraemer) (or Kreemer) married Margaret Brisbin 1766 and was the father of James Cramer supervisor of Northumberland in 1822. James was ggrandfather of Henry C Peck and Van Wyck Burt who ran for the same office 100 yrs later. Wick won then and Peck became supervisor shortly after. Sarah Caroline Cramer was great grandaughter who married George Henry Peck. Thus Conrad is ancestral to most Bacon Hill Pecks. Conrad probably arrived from Germany 1760-1763.

James Cramer b: 28 JUL 1769
Conrade Cramer b: 07 NOV 1775 in Saratoga, New York, USA

Elizabeth Cramer b: 18 NOV 1767.
Sons, Conrade and James are both buried with their families in the Bacon Hill Cemetery.
Also this from the Schenectady History Archive Hudson-Mohawk Family stories: Conrad Cramer was of German descent. He was brought up a farmer by his father, who was descended from Jurgen Cramer, of the second Palatine emigration to New York, in 1710. Conrad Cramer settled upon a farm three miles southwest of Schuylerville prior to the revolution. After the surrender of Burgoyne in October, 1777, the Tories and Indians from time to time made raids on the settlers. In May, 1799, they raided the neighborhood of Conrad Cramer's farm. He hastily packed a wagon with such comforts as one team could carry, and started southward. Night overtook them, May 14, 1779, at a tavern south of Schuylerville, but it was filled, and they were obliged to remain in their wagon. The following morning they continued their flight to about three miles south of Mechanicville, where they obtained a small house, and resided there until it was safe to return to the farm. It was during the night of May 14 that their son John was born.
