Birth: 10 DEC 1756 in New York City, New York.
Death: MAR 25 1826 in NY City, NY
Burial: St. Mark's Church, NY
Occupation: Sea Captain
Note: Cornelius Schermerhorn was a sea captain and was engaged in the general shipping business with his brothers, Peter and Abraham.
A newspaper item of Apr. 1, 1786, reads as follows: "For Savannah, the brigantine, Rock-a-hock, Cornelius Schermerhorn, master. For freight apply to Peter Schermerhorn, No. 73 Water St., opposite the Crane Wharf." Cornelius Schermerhorn lived at 39 Beekman St., New York City, from 1794 until 1814. He was a ship-master until about 1812, and then it appears he settled down to the occupation of a merchant, with office at 71 South St.
