Martin Buck

Martin BUCK (1689 – 1743) was Alex’s 8th Grandfather; one of 512 in this generation of the Shaw line.

Martin Buck (Booken) was born in Germany, most likely in the Palatine.  His father, Paul BUCK, was born in  Germany. He married Elizabeth Becker in 12 Nov 1708 in Kirchberg, Rhein-Hunsrück, Germany.

Martin Buck’s name appears on the Second Ship List of 1710 of Palatine Refugees, arrival from London by 30 June 1710. This list is made up of the second half (62 names) of the 30 June 1710 subsistence list along with any who appear to have been part of their household. Interestingly, a Margretha Schmid appear immediately following Martin on this list.  Martin Buck’s name also appears on a list of  Palatine Heads of Families From Governor Hunter’s Ration Lists June, 1710 to September, 1714

After Elizabeth died, he married Maria Gertrude SCHMIDT. Many genealogies say the married about 1720 in Rhinebeck, Dutchess, New York, but several of the childrens birthdates are earlier so I think an earlier marriage is likely.  Martin died in 1743 in Dutchess, New York.

Maria Gertrud Schmidt was born in 1698 in Germany.   Her parents were Anthony SCHMIDT (1664 – 1711) and Margaretha ERINGER (1668 –  ).  Her parents were born in Weilburg, Limburg-Weilburg, Hessen, Germany. She first married about 1710 to Nicholas Hamm (b. 1684 in Palitinate, Germany; d. 1710 in Along Emigration).  Maria died 18 Oct 1742 in Dutchess, New York.
