War of 1812 Service Records about Martin Ebert

I have been doing a bit of research on the record I found at, see the following
War of 1812 Service Records about Martin Ebert
Name:     Martin Ebert
Rank - Induction:     PRIVATE
Rank - Discharge: PRIVATE
Roll Box:     64
Roll Exct:     602
Source Information:
Direct Data Capture, comp.. War of 1812 Service Records [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations Inc, 1999.
Original data: National Archives and Records Administration. Index to the Compiled Military Service Records for the Volunteer Soldiers Who Served During the War of 1812. Washington, D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration. M602, 234 rolls.

I wrote the the National Archives (U.S.) today, by e-mail, inquiring how I could obtain the full record of the above War of 1812 record.  I am waiting for their reply, which may take up to a week, according to their website.

I also went to and found a list of the other men in the same company, 5 artillery and infantry reg't (Colden's) New York Militia.  I wrote down about 20 names and then looked for those names on the 1790 and 1810 US census.  There were several hundred names to choose from, I tried names that I thought were unique, or at least not too common.
Albert Bradt    found 1790 at Watervliet, Albany, New York
Cornelius Bradt  found 1790 at Schenectady, Albany, New York
William Canada found 1790 at Otsego, Montgomery, New York
Zephaniah Clark found 1790 at Berlin, Rensellaer, New York
Joseph Doolittle found 1790 at Bethlehem, Albany, New York
Eliphalet Cushman found 1810 at Halfmoon, Saratoga, New York

The areas above are close to Berne, Albany, New York, so at least there is a chance this Martin Ebert could be a son of John Ebert of Berne, Albany, New York.   Still no proof he is 'our' Martin Ebert, but will let you know what the service record says, if I can get a copy.

Berne, Albany, New York Website

There is a good genealogy website for Berne, Albany, New York at:

23 Sep 2011  I checked the Family Bible page of this website for Ebert entries, none found
but the Silvernail Bible entry had:
One family name which is part of my husband's mother's genealogy is West: Magdelena West (b. 1805) married to Peter William Shultes (b. 1801) Most of these families evolved in Berne, NY, but the West members appear to come from Wright in Schoharie County, NY. The Silvernails (George and Ida) were born in Wright, Schoharie County. The Eberle / Dietz / Finn side came from Schenectady, Schoharie (?) and Fonda, respectively.
(I realize Eberle and Ebert are probably completely separate names, but am recording it here anyways.  CJH)

Also, there are church records on this website.  Some have been extracted and put on the IGI at  I checked, and there were no entries for Ebert!  see the following:
How to access Berne Church records on the Internet with International Genealogical Index.
1. First,
2.   click on advanced search (I updated this info, as the website has changed slightly)
3. Enter the last name of the family you are researching
4. Look up the batch number below and enter it in the "Batch Number" field.

C511341 High And Low Dutch Reformed Congregation, Schoharie (no Ebert)
M511341 High And Low Dutch Reformed Congregation, Schoharie (no Ebert)

As the IGI only extracted births/christenings and marriages, but no deaths/burials these records may still be useful to look at.  Another thing to put on the 'to do' list.  The Ebert's may also be witnesses, or godparents, so I plan on finding these records and looking at them.

More on the Ebert family of Albany County, New York

I have been looking for information on the John Ebert family of Berne, Albany, New York.  I have not been able to find very much info on the internet, but I did find the family on the 1820 US census in Berne. had it transcribed as John Eberl (I put in a correction on 23 Sep 2011 to change to John Ebert)

1820 United States Federal Census about John Eberl
Name:     John Eberl  / John Ebert
(this is really Ebert, I checked the rest of Berne census, and the census taker doesn't cross his t's when they are at  the end of a name  ie  Robert, Bradt, Everet Bartley, etc.)
Township: Berne      County: Albany             State: New York
Enumeration Date:     August 7, 1820
Free White Males - 45 and over:     1  (John Ebert--I have estimated his birth as about 1755)
Free White Females - 45 and over:     1  (Mrs. John Ebert? or it could be a daughter or housekeeper)
Free White Persons - Over 25:     2
Total Free White Persons:     2
Total All Persons - White, Slaves, Colored, Other:     2

I did come across a Catherine Ebert/Ebberts who married Daniel Butterfield in 1797 in Berne, Albany, New York.  I think she is probably a daughter of the above John Ebert, but none of the internet family trees have parents for this Catherine Ebert.  She was born in 1777 in New York according to these family trees.  Interesting to note that one of her children, John Warren Butterfield (1801-1869) moved to Utica, Oneida, New York with his wife and children.  Elizabeth Catherine Ebert, daughter of our Martin Ebert was supposedly born in Utica.   Could be a coincidence?

Another coincidence?  Nancy Ebert Hicock, daughter of our Martin Ebert says she was born in Albany County, New York  (1865 New York State census).  In some of the info I have found on the internet,  Cherry Valley, New York is mentioned as a possible birth/marriage place for  some of this Hicock family.  Cherry Valley is about half way between Berne, Albany County and Utica, Oneida County in New York state.  Berne and Utica are about 80 miles apart according to the map I looked at.  They are in what is commonly called "The Mohawk Valley".
I think this John Ebert of Berne, Albany, New York is worth more investigation.  Does anyone else have more info on him?

Nancy Ebert married Samuel Hicock

For many years all I had for Nancy Ebert was that she supposedly married a 'Haycock'.  A few years ago I found (on the internet) several postings about a Nancy Ebert who married a Samuel Hicock.  Could this be the same person?  After researching further I could find no proof that she wasn't the same person, but no proof that she was 'our' Nancy Ebert.  Then Laurie W., a cousin of mine, found Samuel G. Hicock, the son of Samuel Hicock and Nancy Ebert, in the 1870 US census in Iosco, Michigan with his aunt, Roxy Ann (Ebert) Kelly and 2 of her children, and 2 other Kelly cousins!  This is the only 'proof' I have so far.  If anyone else has more info, please let me know.  Or if you disagree, or have doubts, that is okay, too.

any notes in paranthesis () are my own notes, they are not found in the original record

following are some of the notes I have on Samuel Hicock, Jr. and Nancy Ebert

It is  possible that Samuel (Sr.) and Eleanor Hicok moved to Canada, had at least Sylvester born 1810 or 1818
(depending on what census info is correct) in Canada.  It is probable that Samuel (Jr.) married Nancy Ebert about
1831 in Canada, and that they had several children born in Canada, before both Samuel Sr. and Samuel Jr. moved their families back to the States, settling in Steuben County, New York.  Both children Eleanor and Martha have sources that indicate they were born in Canada.
The census data on birthplaces differs on each census.  It is not conclusive, and the 1880 census gives the birthplace
of both parents of Nancy (Ebert) Hicok as Canada, when they were both supposedly born in the US.
Nancy (Ebert) Hicok died in 1881.  Need to check death certificate for more info.(there are no government death records for that time period in Steuben County, New York (I emailed the county clerk's office)

Ebert Marriages in New York before 1784

from the book  "Names of Persons for whom Marriage Licenses were issued by the Secretary of the Province of New York, Previous to 1784" I found some Ebert marriages that we may want to look into. 
1.   10 July 1779  Ebart, John and Mary Elizabeth Pelletreau 
2.  15 April 1736  Ebbets, Ellenor and John Nevill
3.  12 September 1753 Ebbets, Richard and Jane Waldron
4.  4 October 1758  Ebbitt, John and Margaret Smith
5.  16 May 1781 Ebert, Catherine and William Powers
6. 14 December 1770 Ebert, Margaret and Charles Meal
7.  15 September 1762 Ebet, John J. and Mary Loman

#1, on the face of it this marriage looks very promising(correct time frame of 1779), however, after doing some preliminary searching on the internet, the John Ebart/Ebert who married Mary Elizabeth Pelletreau is probably not the same John Ebert who lived near Albany, New York.  Descendants of John Ebert and Mary Elizabeth Pelletreau went back to Germany (at least one of the daughters did, according to a SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) record for Theodore Pelletreau Ebert Stein at
  I suppose they could have married in New York, had children born in New York, and then gone back to Germany, leaving some children behind.  I find that highly unlikely.  However, eliminating 'suspects' is just as important as proving descent, so if anyone else has thoughts, or more info, please let me know.
Following is some of the info I found on this couple:
Indiana. Residence, Indianapolis, Indiana. State No. 21 ; National
No. 1621. Son of Ernest Christian Frederick Stein and Catherine
Elizabeth Stein (nee Kurzrock) ; grandson of Ernest Christian Clem-
ens (von und zum) Stein and Maria Amalia Stein (nee Ebert) ; great-
grandson of Mary Elizabeth (Betsy) Pelletreau Ebert and John Ebert;
great-great-grandson of John Elias Pelletreau, who was a private sol-
dier in Captain Zephaniah Rogers' Company of the Suffolk County, N.
Y., Minute Men, commanded by Colonel Josiah Smith ; this company
took part in the battle of Flatbush or Long Island (now in the heart
of the city of Brooklyn) and also in the battle of Monmouth. A paper
containing the signature of John Elias Pelletreau pledging his support
to the patriot cause in May, 1775, is on file in the New York State
Library; see pages 166 and 167 of a manuscript volume, entitled "Vol-
ume 30 Associations" ; see also history of Southampton, Long Island,
by W. S. Pelletreau ; also page 20 of Volume 28 of Marriage Bonds
in the State Library at Albany, N. Y. It is of interest to note that
Mr. Stein's great-grandfather, John Ebert, was Assistant Commissary-
General of the Hessian Army on the staff of General Baron von Knyp-
(page) 112
hausen, participating in the Battle of Long Island with John Elias
Pelletreau, but on the opposite side. See "Our Allies," a Hessian work
relative to the Hessian Auxiliary troops, by von Eelking.
Commissaries of Stores.
John Ebert, 1778-82.
- Lorenz, 1782.

Hessian Soldier
1974 , The Gallimaufry Press
Johann Georg Ebert, Hessian Officer who served as a mercenary with the British during the American Revolution.
Johann is said to have been an officer, but this could be questioned because of his age.  Nevertheless, it should be pointed out that both military rank and marriage seemed to have been achieved earlier in the 18th century.  The Marquis de Lafayette, another participant in this war, held the rank of general at the age of 21.  Despite the Hessian soldier's allegiance to George III, the Hessians were reluctant defenders of the Crown.  This passage from The German Americans:  An Informal History by Richard O'Connor throws light on the role of the Hessian soldier in the Revolution:
"One of the few popular successes in fictional or dramatic form dealing with the Amercian Revolution was produced thirty-odd years ago by the Theatre Guild.  It was Lawrence Langner's play The Pursuit of Happiness and it dealt with a Hessian soldier who deserted his regiment, took refuge with an American family and learned the colonial custon of "bundling" with the daughter of the household and other delights of a free country.
"And that was exactly what many Hessians, as all the German soldiers involuntarily serving under the British colors were called, did the moment they found an opportunity.  Hessian almost became a synonym for deserter.  The muster rolls of the Hessian regiments showed that 29,875 were sold into British service in the Colonies and only 17,313 eventually returned to their various German states.  Of the remaining 12,562 many lost their lives fighting under the Union Jack, but thousands, probably much more than half, simply took to their heels and settled down as peaceful citizens of the Colonies they had been sent to subdue."

I have not investigated any of the other marriages as of 20 September 2011.

Where was our Martin Ebert born?

If not in Pennsylvania, where could our Martin Ebert have come from in the United States?  I have tried to trace most of the names from the 1808 Militia List in Hull, Quebec.  Most of them come from Massachusetts, Connecticut, or the state of New York.  These 3 states are where I think we should start looking for Ebert families.

I looked at the 1790 U.S. census and found several possibilities

1790 US census  possible families, not Pennsylvania
Frederick Abbert  Boylston, Worcester, Massachusetts 3     2     6     11

Adam Ebert     Frederick, Maryland     1     2     1           4

John Ebert      Rensselaerville, Albany, New York     2     2     5      9

John Ebert     Washington, Maryland     1     1     4           6

John Ebert      Stokes, North Carolina     1     1     5           7

Martin Ebert     Baltimore Town, Baltimore, Maryland     2     3     2     7

George Eberts      Frederick, Maryland     1     1     1           3

John Egbert[John Ebert]      New York City Out Ward, New York, New York 1     1     2         4

Submit Everts[Tuernet Ebert]      Litchfield, Litchfield, Connecticut         1     1

Cato Frost[Ross Ebert]      Falmouth, Cumberland, Maine       4           4

The numbers following the place of the census refer to the number of people in the household in various age categories
Number of Free White Males Under 16
Number of Free White Males 16 and Over
Number of Free White Females
Number of Household Members

I think the John Ebert from Rensselaerville, Albany, New York is a good candidate to investigate, I also believe the family below in the 1800 US census is probably the same family.  I have not been able to find anything more about this family from Albany County, New York.  I could not find them on the 1810 census.

1800 United States Federal Census about John Ebert

Who are Martin Ebert's parents?

Unfortunately, I do not believe our Martin Ebert is descended from the Ebert family from York County, Pennsylvania.  I know there are lots of people who have linked our Martin Ebert to either Johann Martin Ebert born 10 March 1780 (parents Johann Martin Ebert and Anna Maria Smyser) or to his cousin Johann Martin Ebert born  1783 (parents Johann Michael Ebert and Elizabeth Rudisill).

 I believe I have traced both of these Martin Ebert families.

 York County, Pennsylvania records seem to show that Martin Ebert, son of Martin Ebert and Anna Maria Smyser, stayed in Pennsylvania, married Mary Eichelberger in about 1807 in York County, Pennsylvania and remained in Pennsylvania until his death.  According to several internet family websites, he died in December of 1854 at York, Pennsylvania.  This Martin Ebert does not appear to have had any children, at least none that survived to adulthood.   I am very confident this is correct.

 I believe the following 1850 census is this Martin Ebert (born 1780)
United States Census, 1850 for Martin Ebert (from
Name:     Martin Ebert
Residence:     York borough, South ward, York, Pennsylvania
Age:     70 years
Calculated Birth Year:     1780
Birthplace:     Pennsylvania
Gender:     Male
Film Number:     444807
Digital GS Number:     4205402
Image Number:     00723
Line Number:     38
Dwelling House Number:     570
Family Number:     615
     Household    Gender    Age
      Martin Ebert     M     70y
    Mary Ebert     F     60y
    Anna Beck     F     19y

I believe Martin Ebert, son of  Johann Michael Ebert and Elizabeth Rudisill probably went with some of his siblings to Adams County, Pennsylvania and then to Frederick County, Virginia.  He is probably the Martin Ebert who married Mary (Maria) Myers/Meyers.  This Martin Ebert's father died when he was just a small child.  Some trees seem to have him linked to either Johann Michael Ebert(born 1769) or Johann Jacob Ebert(born 1771).  These are in fact his older brothers. Several of the children of Johann Michael Ebert and Elizabeth Rudisill lived in Adams County, Pennsylvania.  Further research in Adams County church records may give more information and confirmation that this is indeed the same person.

The following is the 1860 census for this Martin Ebert (I believe)

1860 United States Federal Census about Martin Ebert(from
Name:     Martin Ebert
Age in 1860:     76     Birth Year:     abt 1784
Birthplace:     Pennsylvania
Home in 1860:     District 4, Frederick,Virginia
Gender:     Male
Post Office:     Winchester
Name     Age
William H Ebert     38 born  Penn
Anna Ebert     34  born Virginia
John E Ebert     7           "
Martin Ebert     6          "
Charles Ebert     1          "
Martin Ebert     76  born Penn
Mary Ebert     77 born Penn(?Mary Myers?)
Rebecca Ebert     50 born Penn

For many years I believed our Martin Ebert was from this York, Pennsylvania Ebert family.  I believe I may have shared this information (for which I had absolutely NO PROOF)  many years ago.  If anyone out there is using the info found on in the IGI, that was probably info that I submitted.  If anyone out there has proof for the parents of our Martin Ebert, please let us know.  As far as I have been able to find, all any of the records state is that Martin Ebert was born in the United States.

I wish someone could prove me wrong.  The Ebert family from York County, Pennsylvania is quite well documented, and there are original church records to verify most of the info.

Chronological Record

Archives du Pontiac Archives says that 'Judd family papers' give birth 1780

headstone says  1780-1873

Martin Ebert found in Philemon Wright's first account book in 1806, so he was
in Canada by 1806
 (check other names from the account book, maybe there are other people who came with Martin Ebert-may be the only way to 'prove' where Martin Ebert came from)
The Family History and Account Books of Philemon Wright by Diane Proc
Philemon Wright from Woburn Massachusetts made several trips to Hull Township and then settled in the area that became known as Wright's Town and later Hull. Several of Wright's employees and their families accompanied him. Wright recorded his business transactions in a series of account books. The names found in Wright's first account book (1801 to 1809) are listed chronologically, with transaction dates and page numbers. About 150 entries are listed. The list is an informal directory of early Hull settlers. The account books provide information about the sort of items the settlers needed, for example, cloth, thread, writing paper by the sheet, salt, sugar, and kitchen utensils. Tobacco and spirits were popular purchases. Other entries are for work completed, such as threshing or fanning hemp seed and mill work.
