- Oct 8, 2002Yes he is related to the Spraker's. That's how he got his job at the bank.
J. Ledlie's father, Jacob, married the daughter of Daniel Spraker, president
of the National Mohawk River Bank.
While looking through the pick up I have on the name: his father was a
clothier in Fonda and obviously prosperous. In 1881 James L. Hees was
appointed teller at the MRB, he was fresh out of school. J. L. married in
1883 and was cashier of the bank at that time.
Interesting name usage when looking at the directors and officers of the
early Cayadutta. Jacob Hees is listed as VP and a director, not Jame
Ledlie. J. L. is mentioned after a while and is obviously involved because
it is he who is listed as the treasurer. Perhaps J. L. made his ascensions
through the business worl on the coat tails and purse of his father and
grandfather. Something else for me to explore now. I do not have a good
history of Montgomery County so I am unable here to report on the Hees
lineage beyond this cursory bit.
