    Notes:

    Name:
    James McCready was probably born before 1720 and was included on a list of men who had settled on the Philipse Upper Patent ca. 1740, per statement of Timothy Shaw dated March 1767. He was taxed in South Precinct from June 1743 to "farm" 1755 and farm was on list until Feb. 1759.

    James McCready probably left Philipse Upper Patent and was noted on a road dedication in Rombout Precinct 11 Sept. 1769. The road began at James McCreddy's(sic) door, at a place called Shanandore...thence about due south along a footpath, across a brook into the inclosed lands now in possession of Epraim Bartlett, (etc). He later moved into the Beekman Precinct where he was taxed 1770-1773 'on the Way place". James McCready Sr. and Jr. were witnesses in a trail held in the court of Common Pleas in DC 14 Oct. 1784. Joshua Fine was suing Nathan Hyat and the McCreedys were plaintiff's witnesses for Fine.

    James McCready Sr. was inSaratoga Town, Albany Co., NY in 1790 at 2-0-4 and James McCready Jr. was in the same town. McCready Sr. apparently died between 1790 and 1800.

    (There is no proof that Charled McCrady was son of James)

    THE MCCREADY FAMILY

    The earliest record we have found for this family is a Charles McCrady, yeoman of New Rochell, Westcheter Co., NY who wrote his will 9 Oct. 1754, proved 30 Nov. 1754. It is abstracted as follows: "In the name of God, Amen. I Charles McCrady, of New Rochelle, yeoman, being weak in body. "As to my burial, I desire it may be decent, at the discretion of my executors." I leave to my wife "this house wherein I now dwell, with all the furniture, and the land and tenements that lie round it, during her widowhood, and after she had done with it, then to my sons James and Charles, that is, if my executors think that my son Charles will be likely to make a good use of it. But if they think he will spend it, then my son Charles's eldest son is to have it." But if he should have no son, then my son James is to have it. I leave my daughter Ann L20, to be paid by whoever has the place. My executors are to sell a pair of oxen, 2 cows, six acres of wheat now on the ground, and 6 or 8 hogs, to pa debts. I leave to my wife the old grey mare and the fat cow and 11 hogs. To my dau. Molly a horse. To my grand-son Charles Correy, a young steer. to my son Charles all farming tackling, and my saddle and bridle. I make my wife and my son in law George Correy, and my friend, Joseph Haim, executors. Susannah and Sarah Hunt and Robert Graham witnessed the will.

    Note: Not sure which of his daughters married George Correy.
