Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Craver, P. H., was born in East Greenbush, N. Y., May 20, 1828. He is the son of Jacob and Catherine (Shaver) Craver, both of Rensselaer county. He was born on the farm now owned by Mr. Craver, and which was settled by the great grandfather of our subject. Johannes Craver came from Germany to New York city prior to the Revolution, thence made his way to the farm in East Greenbush, which has passed down to Jacob and Rebecca (Spoor) Craver, Jacob and Catherine, and then to P. H. Craver. Johannes and son, Jonathan, joined the American army and fought in the Revolutionary war. Jacob Craver spent his life on the farm. He died March 26, 1886, and his wife July 25, 1872. P. H. Craver has always resided on the Craver homestead except four years which he spent near Albia, North Greenbush. In 1868 he married Elizabeth, daughter of Barney U. and Eva (Hayner) Sharp of Wynantskill, by whom he had two children: Chester B., at home; and Willie H., who died aged four years.
