Johannes was a resident of Claverack, NY during most of his life, though he died at Coxsackie, Greene County, NY where he appears to have been at some point after the Revolutionary War, of which he was an active participant.  According to the testimony of his son Gloude, He was chairman of the Committee of Safety for the town of Claverack.  He resided in a large brick house which was used as a fort during the war.
