Josiah Hasbrouck (1755-1821) was born and grew up in his
grandfather’s 1721 stone house on Huguenot Street, known today
as the Jean Hasbrouck House. The Hasbrouck family whose
French Huguenot and Dutch forebears helped to settle New Paltz,
New York in the 17th century accumulated much of their wealth
during the colonial period as successful farmers and businessmen.
Josiah’s father and grandfather (both named Jacob) were
merchants, running their general store from the family home.
