GENEALOGY:

Born July 28th, 1742, Stephen was a son of Patriot Johan Petrus “Peter” Fralick. He married Maria Van Benschooten October 23rd, 1764 at the Reformed Church. They had children Maria 1766–1831, Margaret 1767, Solomon 1768–1858, Peter 1770, Elsjen 1775, and Lena. Stephen died April 12th, 1820 at 77 years of age.

Stephen served as a private and was awarded Land Bounty Rights. At the time of the revolution, money was short but land was abundant. Privates and officers in the Continental Army (and militiamen who were drafted to it) were awarded “rights” to many acres of land. The land was generally in Central New York, not only far from a soldier’s family home and comprised of poor soil or rocky terrain difficult to farm, but also in virgin wilderness populated by Natives. Some families moved to these lands after the Revolution, but some opted to sell their bounties, instead. Stephen chose to remain in Dutchess County.
