      Adam Starings' name first appears in the parish register of St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church at West Camp, UL [Ulster County, NY], where Rev. Joshua Kocherthal wrote "Johan Adam Starring (son of) Joh. Niclaus Starring, born in Monsheim (sic) in County of Altzey in the Palatinate" when he recorded Adam’s marriage to Anna Maria Lifenius, widow. . . .

      On 24 Jan 1716 his daughter Maria Catharina was baptised & his name was recorded as Johan Adam Starring. On the same day he & his wife were sponsors at the baptism of Johann Adam Laux, son of Joh. Dietrich & Maria Catharina. One week later the naturalization of Adam Starn was recorded in the minutes of the Albany, NY Common Council after he took the Oath of Allegiance to the King of England.

      The UIrich Simmendinger Register of 1717 contains the name of Adam Stahring & Anna Maria his wife with three children living at Gerlacksdorf, one of the northern most Schoharie, NY settlements along Schoharie Creek.

      In the survey of the Burnetsfield Patent of 28 Mar 1723 Johan Adam Staring received lot 28 on the north side of the Mohawk River. It is located just east of Herkimer, NY & included three quarters of an island in the river, totaling 100 Acres.

      Mary Eva Staring, wife of John Adam Staring received lot 13, the most easterly of the patent lots & the first one in the survey. It is not known why she was given this lot; it has little arable land. It is located in Little Falls, NY on the north side of the Mohawk River & with lots 14 & 15, controls the mile-long portage around the rapids in the river there. Were these three lots intended to generate income to defray the cost of the quit rent for the patent? . . .

      This use of the name Mary Eva as the wife of Adam Staring has prompted a debate about Adam's wife - is Mary Eva the same person as Anna Maria? If Adam married a second time it would have been after 1717 when Urich Simmendinger enumerated the Schoharie residents & recorded Anna Maria as Adam’s wife. Neither his death nor that of his wife have been found in existing records.

      Adam Starring's name was assigned to lots 27 in the partition of Gertrude Petrie’s lot 17 in the Burnetsfield Patent. This was recorded 1 Nov 1793 in Oneida Co, NY Deed Book two, page one.
