    Notes 
    • Note #1:
      [Tier - Valentine v20t2356.FTW]
      In a note to Lewis Tier date 9/14/1926 someone writes him to ask if he knows if Valentine Tier fought in the Revolutionary War.
    • Note #2
      [V20T23~1.FTW]
      A letter written by Reverend Grant Von Blarcom (descendant of valentine) to Lewis Tier in October 1926 (copied by Carl J. Glaser) explains the following. Now as to Valentine Tier (Our Grant Grandfather) He was born in 1743 and died in 1825, the same year my father (George Hopper Tier) was born. Valentine came to America in 1755, being 12 years old. He came with a brother and a cousin. One of these evidently named Jacob as i have a transcript of a deed whereby Valentine transferred, to Jacob, two lots in New York City located at what is now Grand and Motts Streets. I was born on Grand Street. The two lots mentioned were deeded to Valentine by the Attorney General of New York State (Josiah Ogden Hoffman), they having been part of the Bayard Estate. Bayard was a Tory and his land had been confiscated by the State of New York. I also have a transcript of title, passed by the Attorney General,dated October 1, 1800.

      Valentine Tier married Elizabeth Hopper. How long he remained in New York, I cannot say but he eventually found his way into New Jersey and settled somewhere near Macopin, which is in Passaic County, near greenwood Lake. He also owned land on which the city of Utica is built. What disposition was made of this land I do not know.

      Valentine was a Alsatian and was French. Some members of the family spelled the name Tier with a final "s" and some do at the present time so the lady from Strasburg, that you mentioned, is corroborated.

      Note by Carl J. Glaser: Note--In an old book in my possession the name appears in several places as Thiers as well as Tiers and Tier.--C.J.G.)"
