Congers in Rockland County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Snedeker family occupied this portion of the Pond Patent from c. 1730 until 1909 – about 179 years. Part of this stone house was built c. 1747 by Tunis Snedeker’s son Johannes, a captain in the colonial militia. As patriots in the Revolution, he and his son Garret were captured by the British. Johannes died in Sugar House prison in 1779; Garret was exchanged and released. In 1793 he enlarged the homestead.
