William Forman


Community based resources tell us that one time Albany resident William Forman was born prior to 1755. We seek defining information on his origins and path to Albany.

Some sources reference him as "Dr." William Forman.

Probably at-risk during the struggle for American independence, we expect to document his involvement. Afterwards, a William Forman was listed among the recipients of a land bounty right in conjunction with the Dutchess County militia regimant.

In 1799, his real and personal property was valued on the city assessment roll for the first ward.

In 1800, his first ward household consisted of a man and woman born before 1756 and three younger males.

By 1799, these Formans belonged to the First Presbyterian church. In June 1805, his wife Mary was buried in the First Presbyterian cemetery.
