Nicholas Northup Jr. was born the son of Nicholas Northup Sr. and Lydia Palmer (b. 1775) on Sept 22, 1797/1798 in Stephentown, Rensselaer Co., New York. He married Elizabeth Bentley. He fathered 14 children, 9 of whom survived to adulthood.
Nicholas Northup Jr. was reportedly killed in 1860, while returning from a trip to visit his son, Anson, who lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
From the Connewango Historical Site comes an article, that reads like this:

Two brothers, Nicholas and Thomas Northrup, came to this town in 1818, from Stephentown, NY. In 1860. Mr Northrup went West on a visit, and on his return was killed by the cars. Of his sons, George died in Georgia in 1862, and Anson moved to Minnesota and pre-empted the land and built the first shanty, and then the first building, where Minneapolis now stands, and afterwards did the same at St. Paul; Stephen is living in Illinois; J. Brock and his sister, Freelove, now live at East Randolph. Thomas Northrup also settled early in town. He built a small shanty, covering it with elm-bark. He was the first town clerk of the town, which office he held for several terms.
