Dear Tom Randall: Please e-mail His236sek16alf re: Schermerhorn/Printup "Schodack Branch" connection. I note Daniel S. Printup, enlisted 05/17/1862 and served as a Major in S Co. 55th Inf Reg. GA. I assume, at my great risk, that this was one and the same Dan'l S. Printup who as part of a Committee on the part of the Senate, 1860 Session of the Georgia General Assembly, Resolution 14, Adopted 12/19/1860, expressed Georgia's sympathies with Mississippi in sending a delegate to Georgia regarding "the present crisis in our national affairs demands resistance . . ." etc. etc. AND who also is mentioned in the Saint Mary Rom. Cath. Ch., Rome, GA (Northwest Deanery, Archdiocese of Atlanta)thusly, "Mass would be offered in the home of Colonel D.S. Printup, a Protestant gentleman who as a Civil War prisoner had been cared for by the Sisters of Mercy. In gratitude for the kindness of the sisters, he made his home available for Mass and remained a lifelong friend of Saint Mary's parish." According to "Schermerhorn Gen. . and Family Chronicles" (1914), this same D.S. Printup after the Civil War was a friend of Sen. Roscoe Conkling. My Schenectady Branch Schermerhorns had a female married to Aurelian Conkling, Clerk of U.S. district Court in NY State (western), who was an older brother to Sen. Conkling. Have looked for more on Daniel S. Printup myself, but this is about all I've developed. How exactly are you related to Daniel ? I understand there is a Printup genealogy/history published maybe in the 1980s. Have never seen it though. If you know of it, does it have any more information regarding Daniel Schermerhorn ancestry (females)? From one source, I believe a brother of his, perhaps an Andrew Printup, had descendants who moved north and west. Respond when you can. Yours, Richard.
