Description

Excerpt from Schell, or Researches After the Descendants of John Christian Schell and John Schell South-west of Schenectady formed the county of Tryon, set off from Albany county, organized in 1772 and named after William Tryon then Governor of the Province. This county was later on subdivided and part of it became Herkimer county named after General Nicolas Herkimer who fell there in battle in 1777, and had his home in that locality. The Schell brothers, having arrived in America, made their way to the German Flats or the Mohawk valley, with the intention of settling permanently among their country men of that district. They bought farms joining and located upon them. Here they found their partners for their new homes. John Schell married Barbara and John Christian selected Maria who seemed to have been patterned after himself for Coolness. And bravery. Both had large families: John Christian Schell had three daughters and five sons, and in due time each of his sons raised five sons to add to the desirable citizens of this new country. The descendants of John Christian Schell moved to Canada and most of them later on to Michigan, Illinois.
