Biographical/Historical Note

Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn (March 1, 1803-November 1, 1891) was the son of Jacob S. Schermerhorn (1773-1814) and Angelica (Engeltie; Engeltze) (Bradt) Schermerhorn (1775-1843) of Schenectady, New York. He was the grand-nephew of Daniel Campbell (1730-1802) and Angelica (Engeltie) (Bradt) Campbell (1733-1812), the daughter of Arent Samuelse Bradt. They had a son David Campbell (1768-1801) who predeceased them, and, upon her death, Angelica made Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn her primary heir on the condition that he drop the name Schermerhorn for his middle name, Campbell. His name was legally changed by the New York State Legislature on April 20, 1825 (Laws of 1825, Chapter 249). He frequently signs his name as D.D. Campbell.

Daniel Campbell (1730-1802) was of Scotch ancestry from Ireland who settled in present-day Schenectady, Schenectady County, New York, in 1754, building a house at 101 State Street. He was an Indian trader and merchant, forming partnerships with Samuel Tyms and Collins Andrews, and acquiring wealth and extensive land holdings. He counted among his close friends Sir William Johnson of Johnstown, New York. He was also a judge of the Court of Common Pleas for Albany County. During the American Revolution he was often in a precarious position, vacillating in his allegiance with the Americans, but was permitted to remain. Angelica B. Campbell was an active member of St. George’s Episcopal Church where she and her husband are buried.

Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn was a founding member and president of the Schenectady Locomotive Engine Manufactory, begun in 1848. He was also a land agent with inherited properties in Schenectady County and in the Kayaderosseras patent, Saratoga County, New York. In addition, he was a colonel in the New York State Militia, Horse Artillery Battalion attached to the 14th Brigade. He built a large home in Rotterdam (Schenectady) where he indulged in his interest in horse breeding and racing. He married Julia Sitterly and had, possibly, five children, among them John D. Campbell. He was also the guardian of the children of his brother James (Jacobus) Schermerhorn, including Angelica B., (John) Jacob, Bartholomew, and James Bradt Schermerhorn. His obituary in the Albany Morning Express stated he "was one of Schenectady Coumty’s oldest and wealthiest residents."

John D. Campbell (1844-1908) was a member of the New York State Legislature, a judge and an overseer of highways. He married Elizabeth (Libby) Clute, the daughter of merchant and sheriff of Schenectady County, Norman M.F. Clute (1810-?) and Lydia (Hoffman?) Clute. John and Elizabeth had four children: David J. (1873-?), Julia A. (1876-?), John D., Jr. (1878-?), and Bessie (1880-?).

Scope and Content Note

The Campbell family papers were compiled from various accessions and are arranged in two parts: the Campbell-Schermerhorn family, primarily that of Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn, and the Clute family, those of Norman M.F. Clute. The Campbell-Schermerhorn papers are strong in business correspondence and maps but do include some New York State Militia papers. The Clute papers contain family correspondence, account books, and diaries. Both contain documents on legal cases and estates.

The Campbell-Schermerhorn papers are those of Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn, Daniel Campbell, and John D. Campbell, for the most part. There do not seem to be papers for Daniel Campbell’s son, David, but it should be noted that the names Daniel and David, as written, bear a marked resemblance. It should also be noted that people outside of the family sometimes misspelled Campbell as Camel, or a variation thereof. There is also an Edward Campbell whose relationship to the family has not been determined but may have been Daniel Campbell’s brother. Archibald L. Linn and Alonzo C. Paige are frequently represented as lawyers for Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn. Sir William Johnson and Joseph C. Yates, governor of New York State, are represented in the correspondence. The maps of nine surveyors are present in the land papers. For further information on Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn see also the Stephen Gray Papers, 1827-1875 (Accession Number SC11026), a justice of the peace and a land agent of Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn.

The Campbell-Schermerhorn papers open with correspondence to Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn for 1816 to 1882. The correspondence is primarily of a business nature involving land transactions and horse breeding, and of politics and legislation. Some correspondence from family and friends are interspersed and it ranges from gossip to the loss of loved ones.

The correspondence is followed by a financial series consisting of several boxes of the papers of Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn. This group includes accounts, bills, and receipts (a few filed by subject), account books for rents, a journal of an 1828 trip to Europe, a bank book, bonds and promissory notes, checks and drafts, and stocks. For Daniel (1730-1802) and Angelica Campbell there exist a few accounts, bills and receipts, bonds and promissory notes, and several account books in his capacity as Indian trader and merchant. Also present are some accounts, bills, and receipts for John D. Campbell.

Land papers include indentures (land titles), maps, and surveys from 1707 to 1886 for Campbell and Schermerhorn lands in Albany, Cattaraugus, Columbia, Fulton, Greene, Madison, Montgomery, Onondaga, Otsego, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, and Schoharie counties as well as a few in Ohio and Michigan. The majority are in the patent of John Glen and 44 others, and the Kayaderosseras patent in Saratoga County encompassing the towns of Clifton Park, Corinth, Galway, Greenfield, Hadley, Malta, Morgan, Providence, Saratoga Springs, and Stillwater. The towns in Schenectady County include Duanesburg, Glenville, Princetown, Rotterdam, and Schenectady. The maps of nine surveyors are represented: Seth C. Baldwin, Henry Martin, Berian Palmer, Thomas Romeyn, Jr., Alexander St. John, J. Scott, Jonathan Sepham, Nicholas Swits, and Charles H. Van Orden.

The legal series contains affidavits, papers related to cases, docket searches, estate papers, memoranda, petitions, and powers of attorney. There are also passports for Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn (1828-1829) and John D. Campbell (1871). The estate papers are appraisals, inventories, petitions, and wills for Daniel Campbell (1730-1802), John Delancey (1829-1830), John G. Leake, Norman McFarling, and Simon Schermerhorn (1864).

Papers of a more personal nature include the baptism certificate of Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn, a Christmas card, invitations, an article, plans, and proposals for Campbell homes, pedigrees of horses, the school notebooks, ca. 1817-1819, of Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn, a John D. Campbell (?) scrapbook of obituaries for 1880s-1890s, and papers related to Daniel David Campbell Schermerhorn’s trip to Europe.

Military papers for the horse artillery battalion attached to the 14th Brigade of Infantry of the New York State Militia include commissions, enlistment rolls, orders to "appear for military improvements" and parades, and muster rolls.

Printed materials (1827-1901) include two printed maps involving railroads, and subject clippings and advertising for charities, fraternal orders, political elections, horse racing transportation, etc.

Writings include instructions for the prevention and treatment of cholera and a travel journal by John D. Campbell (?) for 1871.

The Clute Family papers contain family correspondence primarily to Norman M.F. Clute on family matters, most notably the taking in of a boarder, Robert Tisdall, a possible cousin; the relationship of his daughter Zelia to the family; and son, Willie N.’s travels to the West Coast, with comments on the life of some Native Americans there, and to Asia in and about 1889.

The financial series includes some accounts, bills and receipts, account books (in Norman M.F. Clute’s capacity as merchant?), and bonds and promissory notes.

There are a few indentures (land titles) for the Clute family, most housed among the land papers of the Campbell-Schermerhorn family and set in Schenectady County, New York.

The legal series contains cases and docket searches involving Norman M.F. Clute, lists of prisoners of Schenectady County (some while Clute was sheriff in 1859), and miscellaneous estate papers for the Bixby family and John Hoffman.

Writings (1839-1896) are principally the diaries of Norman M.F. Clute (1856, 1873, 1888-1889, 1893, 1894-1896) which touch upon farming, the weather, modes of transportation, people on "a drunk," the snowstorm of 1868, and genealogical data on the births and deaths of family and friends. There are frequent mentions of the Hoffmans, Staleys, and the John D. Campbell families. From Zelia (Clute) Luckey’s correspondence to her father and Norman M.F. Clute’s diaries, Elizabeth (Libby) (Mrs. John D.) (Clute) Campbell, appears to have been the favored child. The correspondence and diaries also shed some light on Willie N. Clute, who traveled west to make something of his life only to meet an early death in 1889.
