The Kocherthal Records

The 26 "Schoharie" Baptisms of January 1716

Baptisms of Reverend Joshua Kocherthal

Recently I had the good fortune to acquire several original issues of the scarce genealogical journal Olde Ulster. The August 1907 issue contained the installation of their own serialized translation (by the Rev. J. Christian Krahmer) of Rev. Joshua Kocherthal's extensive baptismal records that listed the "Schoharie" run of 26 Mohawk Valley Palatine children baptized in January 1716. Information about itinerant Pastor Kocherthal and a translation of the full Kocherthal baptismal records is available elsewhere on line and can be readily found by using a search engine.
