- Land Transactions of Andrew Condlin
- Andrew Condlins first land transaction of 38
& 18 hundredths acres for the sum of $190.90 takes place in the
Town of Madrid, Mile Square 24, on 22 January 1841. This area later
became the Town of Waddington. Andrew makes his mark (X) as he can
neither read or write. The clerk who recorded the transaction
spelled his name Conglin. The seller was Joshua Wadington.
Andrews second purchase on 28 September 1854 from Walter &
Ann Wilson for 31 & 10 hundredths acres for $340 was also in
Mile Square 24. This piece of property a joins Andrews first
- On the 10 March 1855 Andrew gave all his property
in mile square 24, some 70 acres to his son, Bartholomew, who in
return was to look after Andrew & Julia Condlin if they so
wanted or Barth must pay the sum of $200 a year if they lived with
someone else. In either case the son must pay $20 a year spending
money = 4 equal payments of $5. Thomas Hughes witnessed the marks
(X) of both Andrew & Bartholomew. This indenture was signed 28
- A second indenture was made on the 22 July 1856.
Bartholomew returns the 70 acres of land back to his father for
$1.00. Bartholomews made his mark which was witnessed by Edward
Crary. The clerk who recorded both transactions spelled the name Condlin.
- Andrew made an additional purchase on 22 July 1856
of 33 & 43 hundredths acres in Mile Square 23 for $200 from
William Waddington & Jeremiah Van Rensselaer of New York.
- A year later on 17 September 1857 Andrew purchased
53 & eight hundredths acres from Ed McVicker in Mile Square 7 in
the Town of Louisville for $200. The land in Mile Square 7 is on the
border with Waddington. This is where James Condlin, Andrews
first born settled .
- The Will of Andrew Condlin
- The will of Andrew Condlin, Town of Waddington, was
signed and his mark made on 20 November 1861. He died shortly
thereafter on 31 December 1861 and the Will was recorded in St .
Lawrence County Clerks Office on 29 July 1862. The clerk who
recorded the Will of Andrew Condlin spelled his name Conlin.
The will makes reference to his wife Julia who must be provided for
during the rest of her natural life, his daughter, Margaret McKenna,
wife of James McKenna, his sons, James & Patrick of Louisville,
Bartholomew of Madrid, and his minor children at home, Bridget &
Andrew. Edward McKing of Gouverneur was appointed special guardian of
Bridget & Andrew. The property was to be left to Andrew when he
reached full age. Although from census records of this time period it
would appear that both Bridget and Andrew were at least 21 years of
age. Patrick Condlin was to receive property along the Franklin Road,
plus one cow, one heifer, and one mare.
- Patrick Duffy, brother of Julie Duffy Condlin, was
appointed executor of Andrew Condlins Will. Patrick Duffy lived not
far from the Condlins with his father, Patrick Duffy. As the executor
of the Will, he appointed James Martin and Owen Mallen as appraisers
of Andrew Condlin estate. They in turn did an inventory of Andrews
possessions - house & farm. The inventory was completed by 25
November 1862 and it is included to show the individual items on hand
in the home and on the farm and their respective value. It gives us a
picture of what our ancestors possessed after thirty five years plus
in the new world.
