[2]While the Republican Assembly ticket was successful, their candidate for Congress, Guert Van Schoonhoven, was defeated by John W. Taylor. They published the following: "The republican candidates for assembly in this county have succeeded by a much larger majority than was anticipated, when it was found that a division of opinion existed among the party on the subject of a congressional candidate. To this schism is Mr. Taylor indebted for his election." Sentinel (Saratoga Springs). May 9, 1821.
[3]The Sentinel lists John W. Taylor with 82 votes.
