From the History of Columbia County by Everts "In the employ of Colonel Van
Alen at the time of the proprietors arrival, was a young man not yet twenty four of age, who afterwards became well known in the annals of Hudson and of the country. This was Samuel Edmonds, he was born in New York City in 1760; entered the Revolutionary army when but a youth; served through the war, and became a commissioned office; was present at Monmouth and Yorktown; and on the close of histilities, started out to seek his fortune, being the possessor of a horse, saddle, bridle, two blankets, and a little Continental money. With this outfit he journeyed northward, and came to Claverack Landing, when Col Van Alen engaged him as a clerk in his store. He married Lydia, daughter of Thomas Worth. He afterwards became paymaster general of militia, member of Assembly, and sheriff of Columbia County."
