We have a copy of the Hess Family Bible, most information came from the bible
starting with Nicholas and John Hess arriving in U.S.A. in 1710 Palentines from Germany .
In Columbia Co. NY book "At the end of the Century" vol 1 - page 27
says Nicholas Hess one of 60 families remained on land grant in Columbia Co. in 1724.
Nicholas Hess has a son, Michael Born in 1752, and mention in "American Ancestry" vol 1-2 page 54.
"Columbia Coubty, New York Record" - residents of Clarerack before the revolution- the Hess Family.
1st U.S. Census of 1790 shows that Michael Hess of Clarerack had one son under
16 years of age John born 1785-married Jane Miller.
John named his first son Michael for his father, one son Jacob for his brother and one William for his brother George William.
