To-Do [18 September 2011]
Currently, the surrogate and probate records, and the analysis thereof are at Surrogate Record for Daniel Sackett of Troy. Will need to make transcript page of Surrogate's record, transcript of Probate record, and move the analysis to Daniel's page.--Obstinatesnooper 14:23, 18 September 2011 (EDT)
Troy and New York St. Association [20 December 2012]
page 12 of his transcript contains the first mention of J.C. Hear[k]. Perhaps this is Jonas C. Heartt, who was involved in steamboats lines between Troy and NYC and for 12 years directed the River Steamboat Association?--Obstinatesnooper 21:18, 20 December 2012 (EST)
some history on the Troy River Steamboat Association and the citizen-owned steamboats of the Troy and New York Steamboat Association operational in 1844 (free e-book) "In 1844, eight steamboats, tentowing steamboats, twenty-four freight barges, and twenty-seven sailing vessels, owned by residents of Troy, were engaged in the transportation of passengers and freight.
At that time the offices of the Troy and New York Steamboat Association were in the building, No. 199 River Street."--Obstinatesnooper 21:25, 20 December 2012 (EST)
