The Condes distinctly trace their lineage from the great Conde of France and they have occupied eminent places among their fellow citizens in this county.

Adam Conde was high constable of Albany in 1724; from thence he removed to Schenectady, and November 30th, 1736, married Catharine, daughter of Jesse DeGraff. He was killed at the Beukendahl massacre, July 18th, 1848, and left surviving him two sons.

Jesse, the oldest son, born March 13th, 1743, on the 8th, of July, 1762, married Parthenia, daughter of Jonathan Ogden, and removed to what is now the town of Charlton, Saratoga County. He left surviving him the following children:

Alida, born January 16th, 1763, married James Boyd, once a member of assembly for Schenectady County, and a prominent politician and citizen of Glenville.

Jonathan, a son, born December 14th, 1766. This was the father of Wilnert, subsequently Mrs. Carpenter, a widow, well known to our citizens. The father died in Charlton, March 3d, 1843.

Albert, also a son, born June 9th, 1771, married Esther, daughter of Daniel Toll.

Isaac, another son, born August 21st, 1785.

Jesse, also a son, born September 4th, 1791, all of whom are deceased.

Adam, the other son of Adam, Sr., was born September 25th, 1748, and married, July 1st, 1770, Catalyntje, daughter of Peter Truax, and a granddaughter of Dominie Cornelius Van Santvoord. In 1770 he lived on the west corner of Church and Front Streets, on the property, or a portion of it, now belonging to the estate of Jeremiah Fuller, deceased. He served during the Revolutionary War, under the gallant Captain Jellis Fonda. He died in Glenville, September 22d, 1824, aged seventy-six years. His widow died April 15th, 1843, in her ninety-third year.

Peter, son of Adam, Jr., born July 25th, 1773, married, December 24th, 1796, Clara, daughter of Philip Van Patten. He died in Charlton, May 17th, 1843, leaving several children surviving him.

Catharina, a daughter of Adam, Jr., born October 3d, 1775, married Charles Taylor.

Eva, another daughter, born March 26th, 1780, married Simon J. Van Patten.

Cornelius Santvoord Conde, another son of Adam, Jr., born September 29th, 1782, married, July 13th, 1805, Sarah, daughter of Abraham Truax. He resided in Glenville; was for several years one of the judges of the Court of Common Pleas of the county of Schenectady, and subsequently, for a long term, Justice of Sessions. He was much esteemed by all who knew him, as a man of strict integrity, sound judgement and elevated Christian character. He died May 13th, 1869, in his eighty-seventh year. This worthy couple had lived together in married life nearly sixty-four years, and what seems unprecedented, had in that time thirteen children, all sons, never a daughter, all of whom arrived at mature age except one son, Andrew S., who died in 1837, aged about fifteen years. This case seems so remarkable that it is proper to insert the names and date of birth of each, as the family have so largely contributed to the population and prosperity of the United States, and some of its members are now to be found settled in various parts of the Union.
