Philip Jeremiah Schuyler
He was the son of Revolutionary War General Philip Schuyler and Catherine Van Rensselaer. The Schuylers were intermarried with other prominent New York families, including the Van Cortlandts and Livingstons, and his relatives included uncle Jeremiah Van Rensselaer.
He received his education through private tutors, and married Sarah Rutsen, a descendant of Wilhelmus Beekman and inheritor of a large portion of the Beekman Patent, which encompassed much of what is now Dutchess County. Schuyler lived in Rhinebeck, where he managed farms and estates throughout upstate New York which were owned by his and his wife's families. After Sarah Rutsen's 1805 death Schuyler married Mary Anna Sawyer. Schuyler served in the New York Militia and attained the rank of major before resigning in 1799.
- Although both father and son had a middle name beginning with the initial "J.", the father (Philip John Schuyler) was always known as "Philip Schuyler"; and the son as "Philip J. Schuyler".
