Herman Knickerbocker

Herman Knickerbocker (also Knikkerbakker, Knickerbacker[1] ) (July 27, 1779 - January 30, 1855) was a United States Representative from New York. Born in Albany, he completed preparatory studies, studied law, was admitted to the bar in 1803 and commenced practice in Albany. He moved to Schaghticoke (near Albany) and became known as "the Prince of Schaghticoke" because of his hospitality and liberality.

Knickerbocker was elected as a Federalist to the Eleventh Congress, holding office from March 4, 1809 to March 3, 1811. He was not a candidate for reelection in 1810 and served in the New York State Assembly in 1816. He was judge of Rensselaer County. He died in Williamsburg (now a part of New York City) in 1855; his interment was in the Knickerbocker family cemetery, Schaghticoke.
