John Conick and his wife, Abigail are buried at Schuyler Lake Cemetery in Schuyler Lake, Otsego, New York.  Photographs posted to Find A Grave and used with permission of Chuck Metcalfe.

Since I have just discovered new ancestors on my husband’s paternal side of the family, I thought it would be nice to highlight them today.  At least what I know so far.

John Conick or Coneck or McConnick (this name was spelled many different ways) was the son of James Conick and his wife Elisabeth (maiden name unknown).  

John Conick is the 4th great grand uncle of my husband.  John’s brother Jonathan is the direct descendant to the Hall family.

John Conick was the 4th son born to James & Elisabeth Conick.  John married Abigail Hartshom (sometimes shown as Hartson) on 13 Feb 1782 in New Hampshire.  

John fought in the Revolutionary War and was granted a pension for his service.

I’m excited to learn more about this branch of our family.  Right now, I’m just happy to have found new information.  I looked for many years for details about Elizabeth Conick, wife of Cornelius Clark Hall.  Cornelius and Elizabeth are my husband’s 3rd great grandparents.
