Andries Ritter, who lived in the Charlotte River Valley (near modern Oneonta), declared that his neighbor Christopher Service (or Servos) helped McDonald plan an attack on Schoharie in August 1777. Service “was Inlisted in the Service of the King . . . with the Indians,” and urged Ritter to join them. (His brother Daniel became a captain in Butler’s Rangers.)
