John F. Meslck 


Years were spent in gathering the facts of this family record. 
The archives of the early history of the State of New York, in 
the Capitol library, Albany, were consulted ; and on a map of 
the Livingston Manor, the Miibick house, the home of the 
original ancestor, was found on the Claverack creek. In Doc- 
umentary History of New York, Vol. 3, p. 404, Veil Miisig 
(ii is sounded e,) Mesig, a German Palatine, from Hunters- 
town, is named as a volunteer for an expedition against Can- 
ada, July 16, 1711. From this scrap the inference is drawn 
that the first emigrant of this family came from the Palatinate 
on the upper Rhine, of which Heidelbergh was the chief city. 
In 17 19, during the reign of Charles Philip, the Reformed 
Church, at the instigation of the Romanists, was assailed with 
furious persecution, and thousands of its members were driven 
into exile, Iea\ing their houses and lands to be occupied by 
their oppressors, and taking with them the few worldly goods 
that ihey could carry ; and were forced for conscience 
sake to become refugees in Germany, Holland, England and 
America. The nucleus of this genealogy was furnished by 
Thomas Mesick, of Guilderland, Albany County, in 1840, then 
aged 86, born in Claverack, and endowed with good memory. 
John I. Mesick, of West Ghent, supplied from documents and 
traditions family lines that could have been procured from no 
other source. Miss Kitiie Mesick, of Claverack, furnished a 
large share of the records of the Hendrick branch. The books 
of the Claverack and Linlithgo Reformed churches have sup- 
plied several names and dates. By extensive correspondence, 


pcated journeys and personal interviews, the compiler has 
.lUed up gaps and secured reliable data. What is here pre- 
sented would have been lost irrecoverably in a few short years 
had it not been sought out at this time. 

Ffitz Muzigh, the original ancestor of the Hendrick branch, 
was born in Germany in 1694, immigrated in 17 19, landed at 
Germantown and settled in the Northern part of Livingston 
Manor, on a life leased farm of 168 acres, 7 miles distant from 
the head of Warren street, Pludson, i^ miles from Glencoe 
Mills, and i^ miles East of the Post road, between Albany and 
New York. Tradition says that he brought all his property 
on a wheelbarrow ; proof of the sacrifices made for religious 
principle. Here he built a small but substantial log house 
(125 years old in 1SS3,) still standing and inhabited. This 
farm passed into the hands of Harry and Waller Decker, of 
Peter N. Decker and of Zachariah Ham, its owner at the last 
date. Ffitz Muzigh's name appears- in a list of freeholders 
made out in 1720. — Documentary History of Neiv York, 
Vol. 1, J>. 424. 

In the double door of this log house is a bullet hole which, 
tradition says, was made by a shot gun in the hands of Tories 
who attempted to rob and murder the old man, who was re- 
puted to have some money in his dwelling. The Tories took 
him three times to the cellar and hung him from the beam 
overhead to compel him to divulge the hiding place of his 
treasure ; but his neighbors rallied to his rescue, and the Tor- 
ies were alarmed and escaped. This fact indicates that he had 
survived the date 1776, and had reached his 85th year. 


FFITZ MUZIGH. Born 1694. Died after 1776. Mar- 
ried Maria Catherine Emigrated 17 19. His chil- 
dren were : 

A. HENURICK. Born 1715. Died April 3, 1809, 

B. JACOB. Born 1717. Died March 19, 1774. 

C. CATHERINE. Daughter married Jacob Young. 

D. THOMAS. Born 1734. Died July 26, 1782. 

Doubt hangs over this relation, on account of the wide 
space between the birth dates. Yet Thomas Mesick No. 3, 
son of Thomas Mesick No. 2, said in 1840 that his Grand 
Father was Fiet Mesick ; and the solution of this difficulty 
may be that Ffitz Muzigh had a second wife. 



No. 2. HENDRICK. Born 1715. Died April 3, 1S09, 
aged 95. Married Catherine Dedrick, who died Dec. 20, 1792,

had a joint lease with his father, until his death. There he 
was buried, but his remains as well as those of his wife were re- 
interred in the grave yard of the Claverack Reformed Church. 
His name appears in a list of members of the Linlithgo Re- 
formed Church in 1755. He was in Consistory from 1753 to 
1767, and an Elder 1755. He received a Commission as 


Lieutenant of the Sixth Company in the Regiment of Militia

came a soldier in the Revolutionary Army, and fought in the

early age he married Christina Moul, wlio was born at Red 
Hook, April 12th, 1754. She was an intellectual woman ; was 
quite a controversionalist, and was noted for her fine conver- 
sational gifts, being able at any time to entertain a room full 
of interested listeners. 

This aged couple lived together more than sixty years, and 
died upon the same day, November 27, 1834, and were bur- 
ied in the same grave. The following inscription appears upon 
their tombstone in Clavcrack Cemetery : 

"Hcncrvlli this stone two reverent forms are laiH, 

\Vlio all the ills of four-score ye.irs defied ; 
Happy in life, in death were undismayed ; 

They lived together and together died."

Rev. John W. Messick, D.l)., of Georgetown, Sussex Coun- 
ty, Delaware, reports that that State is full of families, who 
spell the name as he does, that is with SS, who are of an inde- 
pendent origin, and separate extraction. A score of names 
with the same spelling is found in the Philadelphia City Direc- 
tory. Rev. John F. Messick, Dixon, Webster County, Ken- 
tucky, leports that his grandfather, George Messick, came 
from England to Rockingham Co., Virginia ; moved thence 
to Kentucky ; and had twelve sons and two daughters, the 
progenitors of a numerous posterity settled in Kentucky, 
Illinois and Missouri.
