Census records and family research support this indicating that the first Getman in the area was Johannes b. 1754 and his wife Margaret Loucks, who immigrated the in 1798. He in turn divided the land between his sons who remained in the area. His grandchildren born in the early 1800s began to spread out, most remaining in Columbia Township, several moving to cities in the Mohawk Valley and few joined the westward movement ending up in Illinois and Nebraska. The fourth and fifth generations followed the same pattern. Fewer remained in the Township locally more moved into the cities and several continued to head west. By the sixth generation no descendants bearing the surname Getman remained. A number of sixth, seventh and eighth generation descendants of Johannes and Margaret remain in Columbia Township, All of them being the result of Getman daughters marrying into families of other early settlers such as the Miller and Skinner
