Derrick V. Leversee

Information on this page is from History of Rensselaer Co., New York by Nathaniel Bartlett Sylvester, published in 1880.

DERRICK V. LEVERSEE was born in the year 1814 in the town of Brunswick, Rensselaer Co., N. Y., on the farm where he now resides. The family of Leversee have occupied the farm since Jan. 8, 1773 - this being the date of the deed given by King George III, to his great-grandfather, William Leversee, the first settler.

The business of the four generations who have occupied this farm has been strictly as farmers, and a view of the residence on another page of this work shows the result of industry, economy, and thrift.

His father, Jacob Leversee, died in 1851. His mother died in 1861.

Mr. Leversee was married in 1856 to Mary Fonda, of Saratoga, N. Y. In politics he is a Republican, and both he and his wife are members of the First Presbyterian Church of Lansingburgh, N. Y.
