Conrad Klock and his three sons bought the first tract of land in the Town of Lenox in the area which later became the Town of Lincoln. Arriving in 1792, they were part of an industrious Dutch emigrant group from the Mohawk Valley that also founded settlements at Canaseraga in Sullivan and Quality Hill in Lenox. The first small hamlet in Lincoln was called Shippeville but was later renamed Clockville in honor of its founders.
Conrad Klock, my 4th great-grandfather, was the father of eight children, and has several thousand descendants (801 of those descendants are presented here), many of whom remained in Madison County and the surrounding counties. Duplicate lines are created as the pioneering Madison County settlers merged through marriages. Conrad Klock's granddaughter, Peggy Klock, is my 2nd Great Grandmother, as well as my 1C4R. My Oneida grandfather is also my 1C2R, and 3C2R from two different lines as is my Oneida grandmother and both are descended from Conrad Klock, Sr.
Descendents of the marriage of Rozilda L. Yerton (Yorton) and James Congdon Gordon from the research of James Thalacker. Jim is a 5th great-grandson of Conrad Klock.
