Pardee Family


I am a descendant of the Pardee Family. I understand that Calvin Pardee was a doctor in town in the late 1700s, and lived on Presbyterian Hill. Later, around 1813, Ariovistus (Ario and sometimes misspelled Aria) was the town clerk. Several Pardees are also buried in Stephentown – http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gsr&GSln=Pardee&GSiman=1&GScnty=2019&

I would love to find out exactly where the Pardee house on Presbyterian Hill was located and if it still exists. Or would be interested in any other histories. Thanks for any information! Regards, Ellen

    Ellen,

    The Pardees are actually one family that I know from Stephentown. Daniel Sackett (son of Benjamin and Phebe (Davis) Sackett and who died in Troy in 1845) married Sarah Pardee. Those two had no issue that I have been able to discover. (Weygant in his Sacketts of America misnamed my Daniel Sackett as the son of Benjamin and Phebe; I have since proven that Daniel of Troy was Benjamin’s son.)

    George Holcomb was a contemporary of the Sacketts in the early to mid 1800s, and his diary is in the possession of the Stephentown Historical Society (http://stephentown-historical.org). They were at one point creating a transcription to publish on CD; I haven’t heard any news on this lately.

    Contact the Stephentown Historical Society. They will have oodles of information and can possibly give you an extract of all the Pardee/Pardie mentions in George’s diary if the CD isn’t published yet.

    Cheers.

      Ellen,
      Property records show that Calvin & his wife transferred several parcels of land beginning in December 1827, including a transfer to Apollo Rollo. A map of 1854 shows the A.Rollo home located slightly to the West of School #5 (now Zema’s Nursery?) and on the South side of the road. An 1861 map shows J.A Rolle living in that house, and an 1876 map shows B. Nealon living there. The site now appears to be occupied by #201 Presbyterian Hill road. I doubt that any of the original structure exists.
