PREFACE 



The Hon. James G. Blaine, in his oration on the death of 
President Garfield, pertinently remarks in relation to the early 
settlers of America, that, "from the landing of the Pilgrims at 
Plymouth till the uprising against Charles I. about twenty 
thousand emigrants came from old England to New England. 
As they came in pursuit of intellectual freedom and ecclesias- 
tical independence rather than for worldly honor and profit, 
the emigration naturally ceased when the contest for religious 
liberty began in earnest at home. The man who struck his 
most effective blow for freedom of conscience by sailing for 
the colonies in 1620, would have been accounted a deserter to 
leave after 1640. The opportunity had then come on the soil 
of England for that great contest which established the author- 
ity of Parliament, gave religious freedom to the people, sent 
Charles to the block and committed to the hands of Oliver 
Cromwell the supreme executive authority of England. The 
English emigration was never renewed, and from these 20,000 
men, with a small emigration from Scotland and from France, 
are descended the vast numbers who have New England blood 
in their veins. In 1685, the revocation of the Edict of Nantes 
by Louis XIV., scattered to other countries, 400,000 Protes- 
tants, who were among the most intelligent and enterprising 
of French subjects — merchants of capital, skilled manufac- 
turers and handicraftsmen, superior at the time to all others in 
Europe. A considerable number of these Huguenot French 
came to America ; a few landed in New England and became 
honorably prominent in its history. Their names have in large 
part become anglicised or have disappeared, but their blood is 
traceable in many of the most reputable families, and their 



vi Pbefaoe. 

fame is perpetuated in honorable memorials and useful in- 
stitutions." 

It is a curious fact, that when we trace our ancestry back only 
a little over two hundred years, we find that we, of the present 
generation, have in that time descended from over sixty-four 
distinct individuals; and when we consider that mental and 
physical qualities as well as diseases are transmitted from gener- 
ation to generation, it is wonderful what a conglomeration of 
oddities mu6t be collected in the human race of to-day ! 

Most of the notes relating to the families comprised in this 
volume were taken by the compiler from the town and county 
records in different parts of the country, which were examined 
by him many years since while tracing the genealogy of the 
Talcott family, published in 1876. Great assistance in filling 
up and arranging them has been obtained from " Pearson's First 
Settlers of Albany County," " Bergen's Bergen Family," 
" Goodwin's General Notes," " Biker's History of Harlem," 
and contributions kindly furnished by the Bev. Simon G. 
Visscher, of Bome, N. Y., Miss Elizabeth Bogert (the author- 
ess), of New York (lately deceased), Messrs. Bobert Benson, 
Henry Brace, H. Q. Lansing, of New York, Joseph A. Shear- 
man, General Bichard U. Sherman, of Utica, Dr. Thomas Hun, 
Henry Lansing, of Albany, Col. Henry B. Bathbone, U. S. A., the 
Bev. Mr. Sellick, Bector of St. Paul's church, Norwalk, Conn., 
Mrs. M. P. Ferris, of Brooklyn, also to Mr. Bobert S. Talcott 
for the very voluminous and accurate Index of names contained 
in this volume, and many others. The Bible records were, with 
a few exceptions, copied directly from the Dutch manuscripts 
in the original Bibles. The record of interments in the Dutch 
church grave-yard at Albany was taken by the compiler f rom.the 
original book of burials kept by and in the handwriting of 
Barent Bradt, the sexton of that peribd, formerly owned by 
the late Hon. Harmanus Bleecker. The families of Dutch 
origin have been the most difficult to trace, from the fact that 
surnames were little used by the settlers in the early days of 
the Dutch colonies, although they had them, and the Christian 
names were so twisted and out of shape in spelling that they 
could be scarcely recognized. For instance, Bartholemew be- 



Pbeface. vii 

came Bartholomeese, and then Meese ; Sarah was Sartje ; 
Catharine, Kaatje or Caatje ; Nicholas, Klaus or Claas ; Matthew, 
Tewis, etc. Following, as a guide, the almost universal practice 
of naming their children after their grandparents, and with the 
help of the surnames found, all the aucient families can be 
traced out. 

It is proper to say in explanation of the orthography of both 
the christian and surnames found on the following pages, that 
they have not been carelessly written or printed, as would 
appear on reading the different ways the same word has been 
spelled, but are so written designedly. Most of the names 
have been copied from either thp State, county, town or Bible 
records, and the compiler has intentionally preserved the 
spelling found on the records. This work, as its name implies, 
contains genealogical notes pertaining to many families — not 
full genealogies — and the purpose of printing it is to preserve, 
as far as possible, the names as originally spelled and used by 
the families in which they occur. Many members of the same 
family spelled both their christian and surnames differently, 
and -some of thgm changed the spelling one or more times 
during their lives, and seemed to think they were right. So 
obstinate were they in regard to this matter of spelling names, 
that in one instance that came to the notice of the compiler, 
on a tombstone that had been set up by one member of a 
family, a letter was introduced by another to make the spelling 
accord with his views of the correct orthography of the name. 

Many families are only slightly represented in this book, the 
object of introducing them being to show the intermarriages, 
and, by the cross reference numbers, enable any person to 
trace the genealogy of their maternal as well as of their pater- 
nal ancestors. 

The " Taleott Ped." (Talcott Pedigree), often referred to in 
these notes, is a volume containing the genealogy of the Talcott 
family, published in ] 876 by the compiler of this work. 

In order to enable those who are not accustomed to trace 
genealogies, the following explanations are given : 

Three classes of numbers are used in these notes, viz. : 

1. Consecutive. — These begin at No. 1, the first known per- 
son of the name introduced in these notes, and ending with the 



viii Pbefaoe. 

last one mentioned. These figures are found in and constitute 
the left hand column of the book. 

2. Family. — These are taken from the consecutive num- 
bers and placed over the head of the family of the person 
they stand before in the consecutive column. 

3. Reference. — These are also taken from the consecutive 
column, and are placed in parentheses, before certain names, in 
order to show where such names stand opposite to the corre- 
sponding number in the consecutive column of the family 
before which they are placed. All intermarriages can be 
traced by these numbers. 

Take for instance the name of John Bogart, page 51, con- 
secutive No. 345. 

He is found to be in the family, under the family No. 290, 
of John Henry Bogart. 

Turning back to the consecutive No. 290, we find John Henry 
Bogart under the family number 200, of John (Johannes) 
Bogart. 

The consecutive No. 200 will be found opposite the name of 
Johanrfes Bogart, under the family No. 97, of Hendrick 
Bogart. 

The consecutive No. 97 will be found opposite the name of 
Hendrick I. Bogart under the family No. 25, of Isaac 
Bogart. 

The consecutive No. 25 will be found opposite the name of 
Isaac Bogart under the family No. 7, of Jacob Bogaert. 

The consecutive No. 7 will be found opposite the name of 
Jacob Bogaert under the family No. 3, of Cornells Bogaert. 

The consecutive No. 3 will be found opposite the name 
of Cornelia Bogaert under the family No. 2, of Cornells 
Bogaert. 

The consecutive No. 2 will be found 'opposite the name of 
Cornells Bogaert under the family No. 1, of Teunis Bogaert 
— the first known ancestor of this family.

Note — In consequence of many additions having been made to the genealogy 
of the Douw family, after the preceding pages had been printed, the references to 
intermarriages between the Beeck mans Bogarts and Dou ws wi II be found incorrect ; 
they are, however, properly entered in the Index or Intermarriages, to which 
reference should be made, as also to the " Errata."

NEW YORK STATE FAMILIES. 



BEECKMAN. 



There were two apparently distinct families of Beekman's 
who came to America. One, that of "William, settled in New 
Amsterdam and spelled the name Beekman, and the other, 
that of Martin Hendricksen, settled in Rensselaerwyck, and 
spelled the name as above. Descendants of both families 
removed to villages on the lower Hudson, and their respective 
genealogies became very difficult to trace. 

1. 

Martin, son,of Hendrick Beeckman and godson of Mar- 
tin Hendricksen of Fort Orange (Albany), who came from 
Hamelwaard, in the Duchy of Bremen, in 1638, in the service 
of the Patroon Yan Uensselaer, married Susanna Jans, and 
had (See Eiker's Harlem) 

2 Hendrick, m. (6) Annetje Qhackenbusii. 

3 Johannes, m. 1st (7), Machtel Schermbrhorn. 

2d (6), Eva Vinhagen, October 26, 1692. 

4 Martin, m. Neeltje Slingerland. 

5 Metje, m. 1st, Counelis van der Hoven, of Albany. 

2d, Jan Bebout, of Brooklyn. 

6 Neeltje, m. Jacob BennET, of Brooklyn. 

6J Engeltje, m. (prob.) (9) Teunis Egbertse Metselaer, Feb. 28, 
1716. 

And others, names unknown. 

Martin Beeckman died previous to June 21, 1677, when 
his widow Susanna petitioned to be free from paying his debts, 
on account of having eight children to provide for.

Robebt Benson was Assistant Alderman from 1766 to 1768. 

In 1770 the widow of Robert Benson, bis father, sold the 
property in Cherry street and removed to Maiden lane, and 
occupied the house and lot adjoining the north-west corner of 
William street, property inherited by Robekt Benson. Here 
they resided until the commencement of the Revolution. 

He and all his brothers united their fortunes with the " Sons 
of Liberty," and became active partisans in the cause. Their 
mother was removed to Dutchess county as a place of safety, 
and their home in the city was abandoned, and was occupied 
by the«enemy. 

He was a member of the first Committee of Safety and secre- 
tary of the first convention, and was continued as such by the 
several subsequent conventions until the State was organized 
under the Constitution. He was then chosen secretary of the 
State Senate, and was continued as such during the war. He 
was at the same time the confidential aid-de-camp of Governor 
Clinton, and came in with him and General Washington with 
the troops, to take possession of the city, November 25, 1783.

Henry, son of (71) Robert Benson and Catherine Tan 

Borsom, was born in New York,' November 17, 1741. He

sea, but was compelled to abandon that field of service, and 
then became actively engaged in the service of the Committee 
of Safety in the waters of the State and those adjacent thereto 
and commanded an armed vessel on the Hudson river. He 
assisted in placing the chain and other obstructions in that 
river at West Point.

Egbert, son of (71) Robert Benson and Catherine Tan 

fiorsom, was born in Now York, June 21, 1746. He never 
married, and died August 24, 1 833. In his early life he lived 
with his maternal grandmother on the corner of Broad and 
Beaver streets, New York. He attended an English classical 
school where he prepared himself for college. He was guided 
and much assisted by the Rev. Doctor Barclay, rector of Trin- 
ity Church, who was a connection by marriage. He entered 
Kings (now Columbia) College, August 10, 1761, was grad- 
uated in May, 1765, and took his degree of Bachelor and 
Master of Arts in 1768. He was admitted to the bar in 1769, 
and shortly after removed to Red Hook, Dutchess county, and 
there commenced the practice of his profession. 

In 1773, on the formation of the Committee of Safety in 
Dutchess county, he was appointed a member, and chosen its 
chairman. In 1775 he was chosen a member for Dutchess 
county of the Provincial Convention, which met in the city of 
New York, on tjie 20th of April of that year, for the purpose 
of choosing delegates to the Second Continental Congress. 
He was elected May 3, 1777, and appointed by the convention 
on the 8th of that month the first Attorney-General of the State, 
for which office, owing to the interruptions occasioned by the 
war, he did not receive his commission till January 15, 1778. 
From 1777 to 1781 he was a member of the State Assembly 
for Dutchess county. January 25, 1781, he was appointed by 
Congress to the office of Procurator, whose duty it was to pros- 
ecute in behalf of Congress all debts due to, or frauds com- 
mitted against, the United States. October 26, 1781, he was 
appointed a member of Congress from the State of New York, 
under the Confederation ; reappointed in 1784. And by virtue 
of his office of Attorney-General was a member of the first 
Board of Regents of the University. In 1788 he resigned his 
office of Attorney-General, and was appointed one of the 
Regents of the University. In the same year he was again 
sent to Congress. He held various important offices under 
Congress and the State of New York from this time to 1794,

when he was appointed, by the majority of the council of 
appointment, the fifth Justice of the Supreme Court of the 
State of New York, which office he held till March, 1801, 
when he resigned on being appointed Chief Judge of the Sec- 
ond Circuit of the United States Court. He was deprived of 
this office in 1802, by a repeal of the act creating the new 
court. In 1812 he was again elected to Congress, and attended 
through the first session, but on account of impaired health 
resigned in August. 

He was one of the founders of the New York Historical 
Society, and its first President, and filled that office for eleven 
years.

For a more detailed account of the Benson family, see the 
admirable work of James Biker, Esq., entitled " The History 
of Harlem," published in New York in 1881. 

Mr. Biker, in his excellent work, the " History of Harlem," 
says : 

"With those whose recollections of Harlem run back a 
generation or more, to the times when it yet retained all the 
charms of a quiet rural suburb — ' ere trade's unfeeling train 
usurped the land and dispossessed the swain ' — the name of 
this locality formed almost a synonym in that of Benson, so 
largely identified was this respectable 'family with the history 
and landed interests of the town." 

The foregoing notes relate chiefly to but one branch of the 
family. There are many descendants, both of the male and 
female branches, now residing in New York and the neighbor- 



Benson. 215 

ing cities, and aided by these notes and " Biker's Harlem," it 
would" not be difficult for any one, so disposed, to work out a 
correct genealogy of almost all the descendants of Dirck 
Benson, the common ancestor of this family. 



BOGAliT. 



This name with various spellings, and often with the prefix 
of " van den," " van der," or " wyt," was borne by Hollanders 
of -note in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. One of 
this name was Jan Wyten Bogaert, " Minister of the Remon- 
strants;" another was "Receiver-General of the Dutch Prov- 
inces," and is now remembered as the subject of a famous 
etching by Rembrandt as the " Gold "Weigher." In 1547 there 
was a Hendkick Boogaeet, " Regent van de Huyssetteu ann 
deOudeZide;" also in 1548 and 1549, in Amsterdam, Hol- 
land. 

William Jans Boogaeet was " Kirk Miester van de neuwe 
Zxts Koppel," from 1590 to 1606, in Amsterdam. Jan Willem 
Bogaert was " Commissioner of Small Matters," in Amster- 
dam, in 1611, and Joan Bogaeet was " Deputy Sheriff." 

Stiles, in his history of Brooklyn, says names were very much 
altered from time to time, and some were turned into Latin. 
Thus, Evert Williaime Bogaert became Everhaedits Bo- 
gardus, one of our earliest Dutch clergymen. 

The name in this country is still preserved as Bogart or 
Bogert. Many descendants of the early Bogarts adopted .as 
surnames the Christian names by which their fathers were 
known and called. Thus they became Cornelissens, Teunissens, 
Lourensons or Loueusons or Lausons, Jansens, Jacobsens, Pieter- 
sens, and Andriesens and Adriaansen. The family Christian 



BoGABT. 23 

names mostly used by the early Bogabts were Gysbert, Teunis, 
Cornells, Jacob, and Jan or Johannes. 

Some of the descendants settled in New Jersey, some on 
Staten Island, some in Albany, some in New York and some 
on the Hudson river. The compiler does not undertake to 
trace all these families back to the first one who came to 
America, but chiefly those who are descended from the Albany 
and New York branches. 

1. 
Teunis Bogaert, the first known ancestor of this family, 
was a resident of Schoenderwoert (so spelled on the records in 
the County Clerk's office, Albany), a small village in the south 
of Holland, situated very near Leerdam, where he possessed a 
homestead, and had children, one of whom was named 

2 Cornells, m. Beeltje . 



a. 

Cornells, son of (1) Teunis Bogaert, was born in Scho- 
enderwoert ; married Beeltje , aud had 

3 Cornells, in. Derkje. 

4 Guysbert, m. , 2d, Mary, widow of John Jochems K alder, in 1663. 

5 Louens was probably another son. 

Cornells Teunis Bogaert lived and died at the homestead- 
in Schoenderwoert, as did his wife, Beeltje, previous to 1661. 
Gpysbert, their son, then residing in Catskill, conveyed to his 
brother, Coknelis, then residing in Albany, "a child's just 
portion, being one-quarter of the homestead in Schoenderwoert 
in Holland, which came to him by the death of his father, 
Coknelis Teunis Bogaert, and his mother, Beeltje Coenelis, 
who died in that place."

Cornells Bogaert was buried in Albany, July 28, 1665. 
He came from Holland previous to 1640, and settled in Rens- 
selaerwyck, where he held lands under Patroon Van Rensse- 
laer in 1641, and owned lands in Beverwyek, now Albany. 

Cobnelis is the ancestor of all the Albany Bogarts. His son 
Jacob remained in Albany ; Cobnelis went to Coxsackie, and 
Hendrick and Jan to Kinderhook.

ttuysbert Bogaert was in New Amsterdam in 1640, where, 
in September of that year, he leased a part of a plantation on 
Manhattan Island from Jacob Yan Corlaer. He was still there 
in 1642. He was supposed to have been a widower at that 
time, and to have had the above children, who came over from 
Holland with or after him. He removed to Catskill previous 
to the antumn of 1661, where he married the widow of Jan 
Jochems (Kaldee) in 1663 ; no children. He gave to his step- 
son, while he resided in Catskill, his homestead and farm at 
that place, where it is supposed he died between 1684 and 1695. 



BoGART. 25 

His step-son, Helmer J ants, petitioned for a patent for this 
land February 9, 1698-9, and obtained it in 1703. This peti- 
tion " showeth that his step-father, Guysbert Bogaert, and 
Jochems, his mother, owned lands on the north side of Catskill 
creek for about twenty years last past — lands which they after- 
ward, on June 20, 1684, purchased of the Indians, as doth 
appear from deed in full'reeorded in Albany." 

Helmer J ants died without heirs, and the land escheated to 
the Province of New York.

Captain Jon>~ Bogakt was identified with the commerce of 
the city of Albany and the river at a period so early as to make 
him, at his death, the oldest mariner of the Hudson. He was 
in command of a vessel in the year 1776, and while in charge 
was sent with a flag of truce to convey the wife of a prominent 
general officer of the Hessians to the city of New York, which 
was then in the occupation of the British forces. He was 
identified with the incidents of the Revolution. He was a 
chosen friend of General Schuyler, and of the leading men of 
the day in this region, and shared the respect and warm friend- 
ship of the " Old Patroon," Stephen Van Rensselaer, during 
their mutual lives. Pie lived in the pleasant memories of a 
kind old age, of years far prolonged, but not diminishing the 
sound good sense, the distinct principle and refined courtesies 
which he possessed to the last, making him to all an object of 
honor and veneration.

Angelica, wife of General George Talcott, was attacked 
with apoplexy while coming out of the North Dutch Church, 
in Albany, about twelve o'clock on Sunday, September 1, 1861, 
and died the same evening at seven o'clock fifteen minutes, at 
her residence, 748 Broadway. 

" In the character of Mrs. Talcott was presented one of the 
finest exhibitions of the 'beauty of holiness.' Gifted by her 
Creator with an attractive person, an intelligent mind, an amia- 
ble temper, and manners of uncommon gracefulness and refine- 
ment, to all these was superadded the exquisite charm of a true 
and exalted piety, which gave increased beauty to all her nat- 
ural graces. She blended in her character, and her Christian 
life was, her character, the earnest and calm good sense, the 
firmness where others faltered, the act of kindness, with a per- 
vading and unceasing gentleness, which possessed the fineness 
of high cultivation, with the charity that thinketh no evil, and 
gives truth and power to the affections. In her this was the 
quiet, unvarying rule of life, which met some of the saddest 
of all human trials, and which knew what it was to lose 
what was among the dearest, and yet preserve its feelings of 
love to all around. The idea of the Christian lady could not 
have found better reality for all that is 'pure and lovely, and 
of good report,' than in her. Her life led her for a long series 
of years to mingle in the world in its most active scenes. At the 
seat of government, at important positions in the military 
defences of our country, she long resided. And from all these 
scenes she came the same gentle and true hearted being, inter- 
ested in every recital of others' sorrow, to alleviate, and assist- 
ing by the irresistible influence of sincere kindness, all who 
came around her for sympathy in joy or grief. 

" The counsels and prayers of a mother, eminent for her intel- 



BoGAET. 53 

ligent piety, and her knowledge of the Scriptures, were always 
remembered by her, and her union to the church in its visible 
structure, was only the progress of a union long before formed 
with it in the heart. 

" There were several elements in the Christian character of 
Mrs. Talcott which were peculiarly prominent and very beau- 
tiful. She was a Christian of a peculiarly Catholic spirit ; she 
was a cheerful Christian ; she was a devoted Christian." (From 
an obituary by the Kev. Dr. Rogers.)

ness and their friendship. He was one of the first, if not the 
very first, to introduce into the New York market the cele- 
brated and well known "Round Hoop" Ohio flour. Colonel 
Reed retired from the firm of Suydam & Reed and formed a 
partnership with Charles Schermerhorn and Robert B. Lefferts, 
under the name of Reed, Schermerhorn & Co. On the death 
of Mr. Schermerhorn Colonel Reed continued the commission 
business in his own name for many years, and eventually took 
into partnership James R. Turner, who has been with him a 
long time and in whom he puts especial confidence. The firm 
then became Isaac H. Reed & Co., and so continues doing a 
produce commission business at No. 5 State street, New York. 
There are but few merchants in that city who have been in 
business so long whose high standing and credit have been so 
continuous, and who have had the uninterrupted confidence of 
their consignors, and of those who have done business with them, 
which he has always held. Colonel Rekd, when a young man, 
was a member of the La Fayette Guards, a regiment of dis- 
tinction in those days, and became its commanding officer. He 
has been a director of the Bank of the State of New York, of 
the American Fire Insurance Company, of the Republic Fire 
Insurance Company, a member of the Chamber of Commerce 
and president of the Produce Exchange. He still remains in 
active business.

Dorothe, his widow, died November 22, 1701. 

Embracing the principles of Mennon, who was also a native 
of Friesland, Captain Volckert Janszen Douw was driven by 
religions persecutions to Friedrichstadt, Denmark, a city where 
religious liberty was extended to the Mennonites. About 1637 
the Calvinists again waged war against this hunted sect, and as 
the Holland colony of New Netherlands was already flourish- 
ing enough to attract emigration, many fled here for religious 
freedom, and among them Volckert Janszen Dotjw, his 
brother and two sisters, together with cousins and other rela- 
tives, which accounts for names that could not otherwise be 
placed. Volckert J. Douw held the rank of Captain in the 
Dutch army. He settled for a few months at Catskill, going to 
Beverwyck late in 1638. He was deacon in the church and 
guardian of the widows and poor in 1654, and was magistrate 
from 1654 to 1660. Was a wealthy brewer and real estate 
dealer. Owned much land at Esopus, N. Y., and was one of 



66 Douw. 

the original patentees. Held the office of commissary and 
continuously that of Indian commissioner. At different 
times he was attorney and guardian for large estates. Made 
his will in 1680 and died in 1681. In 1640 he received a con- 
veyance of lands from the Indians, which was confirmed to his 
widow in 1693; a portion of which is the site of Douw's 
Building, corner of State street and Broadway. His brewery 
was situated on the east half of the Exchange block, now 
occupied by the Government Post-Office, and extended to 
the river. It was sold in 1675 to his nephew Harman Rutgers. 
He is spoken of as the " Honorable Volckekt Douw, Burgher 
of the village and master (Heerschaps) of the Bouwery lying 
in the colony of Rensselaerwyck." His summer home was on 
Papsknae Island. In 1666 an extraordinary and frightful 
flood inundated the Island, sweeping away houses, breweries 
(of which he had two immense ones), cattle, and all his personal 
property, including his papers and records, the family barely 
escaping with their lives. Not a thing was saved but a small 
round table and a colt, which were carried by the current 
through the " Hoist-door " into the second story of the house. 
This accounts for the paucity of records. The same year he 
purchased the ground now known as "Douw's Point Wolven- 
hoeck," just below the village of Greenbush.

It will appear from the following article, taken from the 
" History of Hudson County, N. Y.," that Johannes Douw 
owned a Ferry across the Hackensack River. 

"Douw's Ferry. '- 

This ferry was located at the westerly end of Cherry Lane, 
about one hundred and seventy-five feet north of the present 
bridge of the New Jersey Railroad over the Hackensack River. 
It was probably set up about the time that Col. John Schuyler 
constructed the Belleville Turnpike during the French war, 
and remained in operation until, superseded by the bridge 
erected in 1794. It received it name from John Douw, a 
friend of Col. Schuyler. He had formerly operated the ferry 
over the Passaic at Belleville. The ferry house was on the 
west side of the Hackensack. Douw used it also as a public 
house, where he entertained travellers and guests. Bangs 
says that here June 27, 1776, by him and Schuyler, 'many 
decanters of wine suffered shipwreck and mony bowles of grog 
were poured down. Nor was egg pop forgot among 'our 
dainties.' It was at this ferry that boats had been provided, 



Douw. 71 

on the night of Lee\s attack on Paulus Hoeek, to carry over 
the troops on their retreat. Their delay induced those in 
charge to believe that the forces had retreated along the hill, 
and therefore the boats were taken away. Lee's advance passing 
down Cherry Lane, reached the ferry only to find it deserted.

HUN. 



l. 

The first known ancestor of this name was Thomas Hun, 
who resided, possibly, at Amersfort, in Holland. He had 

2 Harmen Thomas. 

It is not known if he had other children. 

It is found in the Notarial Papers, page 103, first part, on 
recoi'd in the County Clerk's office, Albany, that "On July 5, 
1661, his sou Haemen and his wife Catalyntie Beeuk,* gave 
a power of attorney to collect a certain sum of money from 
Angenitie Comelisen, of Amsterdam, in Holland, belonging 
to the aforesaid Catalyntie as an inheritance from the 
late Tryntfe Jansen van Eechter, her mother, late wife of 
Cornells Stoffelse Bui, of Amsterdam, and also from her 
brother, Hendeiok Beeck, a certain sum on an obligation " dated 
" March 8, 1656 ; " also to close up the estate of Wendeltie 
Haemense (maiden lady), late aunt, or father's sister, of the 
above-named (2) Hakmen Thoma.se. She being dead at 
Alckmar, in Holland. 

The christian name of the father of Thomas and Wendeltie

obituary. 

(Mrs. Thomas Hun.) 
A. great sorrow has fallen upon the hearts of many in every 
class and condition of life in this city in the death of Mrs. 
Hun, the wife of Dr. Thomas Hun. No one was better known 
than she has been during her whole life among us, for her 
earnest and efficient interest in all that could contribute to the 
good of others, and especially of the poor and the ignorant. 
She inherited from her father, the late Marcus T. Reynolds, 
much of the vigor and acuteness of mind and also of the 
energy and decision of character, for which he was so eminently 
distinguished ; and these marked natural endowments were 
enriched and strengthened not only by unusual advantages of 
early education, but by her life-long habits of reading and 
reflection, and perhaps even more, by the influence of the re- 
fined and cultured companionship and associations in which her 
lot in life was happily cast. Those who knew her in her earlier 
days, before her growing infirmity of hearing had shut her off 
from the intercourse of general society, will not fail to remem- 
ber the ease, graces and attractiveness of her person and man- 
ners, her quick and playful wit, her happy turns of thought 
and expression and the airy grace, vivacity and spirit of her 
conversation. And through it all there ever ran a vein of 
exquisitely delicate and most feminine sentiment that marked 
the lady, and gave an inexpressible charm to all she said and 
did. And yet one could not but feel that back of it all there 
was the woman of strong convictions and of deep conscientious- 
ness. In the qualities of her mind and character, she combined 
in a remarkable degree the theoretic and speculative with the 
practical. Few persons have ever set before them a higher 
ideal of duty in respect to living, not for one's self, but for the 
good of others, and still fewer have worked so faithfully and 
unwearied as she did to fulfil this duty. Her ever active mind 
found interest in every plan that promised to reform what was 
evil, and to help those upon whom the hardships of life press 
most sorely ; but this was no mere speculative or sentimental 
scheming ; on the contrary, she was eminently real and prac- 
tical in her aims, and very energetic and efficient in carrying 



Htjn. 101 

them out. To give liberally was the least of her well doing. 
She felt that the poor and ignorant needed far more than 
money — the hopeful advice, the foresight, the experience and 
the trained judgment of those in higher stations in life, and 
she, therefore, habitually sought to make her charities not 
merely a relief, but also an education in a better and more 
thrifty mode of life. At an early day she purchased and fitted 
up, and has since maintained, a sort of model tenement house, 
to be allowed to hire and occupy apartments in which came to 
be esteemed by the worthy poor a privilege and an object of 
ambition. Here she watched over them, encouraged them to 
form habits of neatness, order and economy, taught them to 
make small savings, and thus built up in them a sense of 
self-respect and of independence. To the very last and after 
she had given np all other cares in life, her thoughts and 
anxieties still followed " her poor," as she tenderly called them. 
She also labored, with some partial success, to establish in the 
neighborhood of poor and working people reading rooms and 
a place of cheerful and comfortable resort for them during the 
long evenings of winter. Surely such a life cannot fail of the 
benediction, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the 
least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me." 

But it was not among the poor alone that the influence of 
her character was felt. No lady in this city has done more to 
promote intellectual tastes and habits of good reading through- 
out the wide circle of her friends. The Ladies' Book Club in 
this city owes its establishment and success largely to her con- 
stant care of it and her sound judgment in the selection of books. 

But after all, admirable as she was in her life and example, 
her friends were bound to her by more tender and endearing 
ties. To have her for your friend was no common privilege. 
It was not lightly given, but when given it was something 
worth having and something for one to try to be, worthy of. 
It was to be believed in, to be trusted with a generous con- 
fidence, to be ever met with a smile and kind welcome, to know 
that your character and motives were in friendly keeping, that 
your successes would be rejoiced in and your errors and failures 



102 Hun. 

lovingly sorrowed for, and that among all the changes and 
chances of life you had a friend who would sympathize not 
less in your sorrows than in your joys. 

Although during her latter years her intercourse with gen- 
eral society was more and more restricted hy her increasing 
deafness, her buoyancy and sprightliness of nature never wholly 
forsook her, but threw a brightness over the comparative quiet 
and seclusion of her life. Great as is our loss, there is much 
to comfort us in our bereavement. The world has been the 
better and the happier for her life, and she leaves us remem- 
brances that will abide with us and be a blessing and consola- 
tion till we shall be called to join her again. M. 

Thomas Hun, M. D., now Dean of the Faculty of the Albany 
Medical College, was born in Albany. Losing his parents at 
an early age, he and his sister were brought up by their maternal 
grandparents — Judge and Mrs. Leonard Gansevoort, Jr. As a 
very small boy he attended a school kept by an English gentleman 
and lady, Mr. and Mrs. Upfold. In 1818 he entered the 
Albany Academy, where he remained until he had completed 
his whole course of academical preparation for college. He 
was decided in character, intelligent, studious and always main- 
taining a good standing in his classes. The academy was then 
as it still is, one of the best classical and mathematical schools 
in the country, and young Hun left it in the autumn of 1824 
and entered the junior class of Union College at the age of 
sixteen, with more than usual preparation for his college course. 
In college he had for his chum the late Prof. Isaac W. Jackson. 
Here he fully maintained his character for intelligence and 
scholarship, and graduated with . honors in 1826, taking his 
degree of A. B. 

Immediately after leaving college he commenced the study 
of medicine in the office of Dr. Piatt 'Williams, then a prac- 
titioner of considerable eminence in Albany. In 1827 he 
entered the Medical Department of the University of Pennsyl- 
vania and in 1830, having completed its full course of medical 
studies, received from that institution the degree of Doctor of 
Medicine. He then returned to Albany and began the prac- 
tice of his profession in connection with Dr. Williams. On 



Hun. 103 

the outbreak of the cholera, early in the summer of 1832, a 
cholera hospital was organized in Albany and Dr. Hun was 
appointed one of its physicians. He continued in this position, 
discharging the duties with marked skill and fidelity, until the 
disappearance of the cholera and the closing of the hospital in 
the autumn of that year. In the spring of 1833 he determined, 
with the view of the better prosecution of his studies, to go to 
Europe, and he went accordingly, and with the exception of 
two brief visits, during that time to this country, he remained 
abroad, residing chiefly in Paris, until 1839. 

During the six years of his stay abroad, he availed himself 
of the opportunities thus afforded him for a wide and liberal 
range of studies bearing more or less upon his profession. For 
the first two or three years he gave himself rather to the 
broader and more general lines of scientific and professional 
study than to those relating to practice. But after his last 
visit to this country, and when he had decided to return home 
and resume the practice of his profession, he devoted himself 
exclusively for several years, to attendance on the hospitals 
and all the varied means that Paris offered to students for 
acquiring a knowledge of practice. 

The Albany Medical College had been incorporated and 
organized in 1838, and Dr. Hun, previous to his return home, 
had been invited to accept in it the professorship of the Insti- 
tutes of Medicine. On his return he accepted the appoint- 
ment and entered upon its diities. His inaugural address ex- 
cited much interest and admiration from its philosophic treat- 
ment of his subject and its large grasp of principles as well as 
from its lncid style and its clear and forcible illustrations. His 
lectures and instructions as professor were always regarded, 
especially by the best class of pupils, as most interesting and 
instructive, and added much to the reputation, of the college. 
He continued to hold this class until 1858, when he resigned 
it and devoted himself wholly to his private practice, which 
had become large and of the best kind. 

On the incorporation of the Albany Hospital in 1848, Dr. 
Hun became one of the board of Consulting Physicians. Sub- 
sequently, on the organization of St. Peter's Hospital in this 
city, he held the same position on its medical staff. In 1862 
14 



104 Hun. 

he became the president of the State Medical Society, and as 
such delivered an inaugural address which attracted much 
attention from the profession from the boldness of its position 
and its opposition to the traditional ideas of medical theory 
and practice. He maintained that neither medicine nor the 
physician, although both were important in their place, ever 
cured disease. That the curative power was in Nature alone. 
That the function of the physician was not to cure, but to 
preside over, watch and aid the efforts of nature to cure, by 
recognizing the true character of the disease, its course, its 
processes and effects, also the accidents and dangers to wliich 
it is liable, and thns be able to secure, as far as possible, such 
favorable circumstances, aids and conditions as may be most 
contributory to the restorative powers of nature. On the re- 
organization of the Albany Medical College in 1876, Dr. Hun 
was unanimously called to be the Dean of the Faculty, but he 
declined undertaking with it the duties of any professorship. 
Dr. Hun's natural tastes and tendencies have always inclined him 
more to a studious and contemplative life than to an active and 
practical one. He has a rare power of abstract thought, and 
philosophical studies, especially in the line of metaphysical and 
ethical investigation, have always had much attraction for him. 
He has, nevertheless, been a careful observer of what was 
going on in the world around him, and has had very decided 
views in regard to all such matters. In his profession he has 
always been regarded as a skillful and successful practitioner, 
and in the knowledge and treatment of pulmonary diseases, 
no physician in Albany has ever stood higher in the confidence 
of the profession and of the public. As a practitioner he has 
been especially noted not only for his sagacity and accuracy in 
the diagnosis of disease, but also for his calm far-sighted wisdom 
and his large comprehension of the constitutional tendencies, 
habits and other circumstances specially affecting the case and 
calling for consideration in its treatment. M.

OBITUARY. 

(Dr. Bdwabd R. Hun.) 
The many friends in this city and elsewhere of Dr. Edward 
R. Hun have been deeply pained to learn of his unlooked-for 
death, which took place early on Sunday morning last, at Stam- 
ford, (Jonn., where he had been staying for some time past for 
the benefit of his health. From almost the very outset of his 
professional life, he had a very large, laborious and responsible 
practice, and the zeal and devotion which he brought to it were 
so unremitting and exhausting that his friends have for many 
years feared that he was laboring beyond his strength, which 
was never very great. Several years since he was thrown from 
his carriage and received a stunning blow upon the head and a 
general shock to his system, to which he himself attributed much 
of his subsequent feeble health. About a year ago he found his 
health so much impaired, that he came to the conclusion to 
withdraw from practice, only temporarily as he then thought, 
and to seek rest and restoration in absence from home. Accom- 
panied by his wife, be spent the spring of last year in Florida, 
but his stay was not attended with the benefit he expected, and 
he resorted during the summer to the more bracing air of the 



106 Hun. 

northern part of this State, and for the last few months he has 
been at Stamford, where he died. Until almost the time of his 
last and fatal attack, it was fondly hoped by himself and his 
friends that his health was slowly improving by this exemption 
from care and labor, and that in due time he would be able 
again to return to his professional work. Very recently, how- 
ever, he found himself not quite as well as he had been, and 
on Friday last he had been to New York to consult his phy- 
sician, and soon after his return he was suddenly struck down 
by apoplexy and became at once wholly unconscious and 
remained so till the time of his death. He had not yet quite 
completed his 38th year, and for so young a man his pro- 
fessional career had been qxiite a remarkable one. Probably 
no other physician in this city had ever had at so early an age 
so large and responsible a practice. From the very first, his 
abilities and acquirements were recognized, not less by his pro- 
fessional brethren than by the public, and he at once took his 
place in the very first rank of his profession. Those who have 
known his parents will be at no loss to know whence the rare 
qualities of his mind and character were derived. Much as he 
owed to his advantages of education at home and abroad, and 
to the hardly less valuable privilege of constant intercourse 
with a father eminent for learning, wisdom and experience in 
the same profession, he nevertheless owed even more to his 
own remarkable natural endowments and aptitudes for his pro- 
fession. He had an almost feminine quickness of perception 
and great facility in acquiring knowledge. What cost others 
painful effort, he caught on the wing and made his own. He 
had remarkable sagacity and accuracy in diagnosis. In detect- 
the characteristics of disease, his power seemed to be intuitive 
and to reach its results at a glance, rather than by any slow 
process of examination and reasoning. His maternal grand- 
father, who was one of the most eminent members of the Bar 
of this State, was distinguished in a different sphere for very 
similiar qualities of mind. Dr. Edwakd R. Hun's nature was 
an ardent and sympathetic one, and in a case of any interest 
and importance he would throw himself into it unreservedly, 
and with all his heart and mind. At such times he showed 
not only untiring vigilance, but great fertility of resource. 



Hun. 107 

There was about him in a marked degree that indescribable 
something that inspired confidence. He was a man of great 
kindness of heart, faithful, affectionate and of a high standard 
of integrity and honor. He had in a rare degree the faculty 
of winning the love and confidence of children, and of estab- 
lishing pleasant relations with them. To the old, the poor and 
the lowly he was always especially gentle and considerate, 
having ever for them a kind and cheering word, which, if he 
could do them no other good, left them the better and happier 
for his coming. While in the fullness of his powers, and be- 
fore the disease which overcame him had begun to throw its 
shadow over the brightness of his spirit, his presence was like 
a gleam of sunshine in a sick-room ; and many a household in 
this city will mourn the loss of their warm-hearted friend not 
less than of their trusted and devoted physician. 

This is not the place to speak of the traits that made the 
charm and happiness of his domestic life, nor of the unfailing 
love and fidelity that watched over him through all the long 
course of his declining health. Nor may we now dwell upon 
the quiet and unostentatious, but firm and decided religious 
faith and principle that underlay and gave its tone to his whole 
character. Now that he has gone from us and our anxieties 
for him are at an end, we can fall back upon the impressions 
of his honorable, useful and benignant life, which remain to 
us as a pleasant and cherished remembrance. Such lives are 
not to be measured by the number of their years, but rather 
by the good work well done which they have fulfilled M.

he had always found him to be a true friend, an able physician 
and a courteous gentleman. 

Dr. F. C. Curtis moved that a committee, composed .of Drs. 
Lewi, Boyd and Hailes, be appointed to draft resolutions ex- 
pressive of the feelings of the Staff. The committee reported : 

Whereas, It has pleased Almighty God to remove from our 
midst, by sudden death, our esteemed and lamented colleague,

Chancellor John Lansing left Albany for New York, and 
the last that was seen of him was on the 12th of December, 
1829, on the pier where the Albany steamboats landed, walking 
towards the boat. No event had caused a deeper sensation in 
the city since the death of De Witt Clinton. At an early period 
.of his life he entered the office of Robert Yates, afterwards 
Chief Justice, as a clerk in the study of the law. He became a 
member of the military family of General Philip Schuyler, 
and during the Revolutionary war was a distinguished member 
of the State Convention that conducted the civil and military 
operations of the State. Soon after he was appointed Mayor 
of the City and in 1787 was, with Chief Justice Yates and 
General Hamilton, delegated by the State as members of the 
Convention which formed the Constitution of the United 

States. The latter two withdrew from the Convention and

the Constitution principally because it did not more effectually 
secure the rights of individual States, and to those men and 
their co-patriots we are indebted for the ten amended articles 
which were subsequently made a part of the Constitution. On 
his return he was made a Judge of the Supreme Court, and 
finally Chancellor of the State. — [Munsell.

Gtdeon Hawley was born in the State of Connecticut 
in 1785, but removed to New York in 1794. In 1809 he 
graduated at Union College, and in 1812 was admitted to the 
Supreme Court. From that time until his death he resided at 
Albany, engaged in the practice of the law and in the dis- 
charge of various important trusts committed to him by indi- 
viduals and the State. But the great distinction of his life 
was his connection with the cause of education. He was always 
a leading trustee of the academies in Albany and of the State 
Normal school ; the first secretary of the Regents of the New 
York University, and afterwards one of its chief members. 
He was also from 1846 one of the New York Regents of the 
Smithsonian Institution at Washington ; and, as detailed in 
Randall's Digest of the Common School System ol the State, 
the person to whom that noble institution was chiefly indebted 
for its organization and success. As a man Mr. Hawley was 
distinguished by a noble presence, great personal integrity and 
practical sense. He was also of broad culture and most gener- • 
ous character, illustrated by a work on human knowledge 
written (not published) near the close of his life, and by the 
rare fact that for many years previous thereto he divided all 
of his surplus income among his children.

The following biographical sketch of Judge Lansing was 
kindly furnished by a member of the family : 

"JuriGE Jacob Lansing "was educated at the Granville 
Academy in "Washington county, N. T., and afterwards en- 
tered Middlebury College and was graduated with honor. 
When the war of 1812 broke out he was appointed Quarter- 
master of the Twelfth regiment, New York State troops, by 
Governor Daniel D. Tompkins, Colonel John T. Dalsen com- 
manding the regiment, and proceeded with the same to 
Sackett's Harbor where he was in service nearly twelve months, 
and from exposure contracted the seeds of disease which event- 
ually terminated in his death. After the war he studied law 
in the office of Philip S. Parker, Esq., and was licensed in due 
time as an attorney and advocate. He acquired such a dis- 
tinguished reputation as a sound and well-read lawyer that he 
was appointed Judge of the Albany Common Pleas in 1828. 



Lansing. 155 

In 1838 he was made first Judge of said court. During his 
term of office the decisions of that court were highly respected. 
As a presiding magistrate he was impartial, honest and capable, 
and gave character to the Bench." 

The Christian Intelligencer, in speaking of Judge Lansing, 
says: 

" As a man and a Christian he was without fear and without 
reproach ; as a man he was just and tenacious of his purpose ; 
as a lawyer, learned, logical, honest ; as a judge, inflexible, in- 
corruptible ; as a politician, settled in opinion, fixed and stern ; 
as a Christian, faithful, reliable, active; as an elder in the 
Middle Dutch Church, prompt, energetic, able." He was in 
all relations of life honored and respected.

The Army record of Captain Lansing, given below, will 
be found interesting and is valuable on account of the details 
it gives of the movements of one of the regiments engaged in 
the war of the Eebellion : 

AEMY BECOED 

Of Captain Spencer Stafford Lansing, Company F, Twenty- 
fifth Eegiment, Michigan Infantry Volunteers. Mustered 
in State service 15th day of July, 1861, and under orders and 
instructions from Colonel Gilbert of the Nineteenth Infantry, 
but that regiment being filled by transfer of Governor Blair 
of companies enlisted prior to mine, I reported to one of the 
four new regiments ordered, and selected the Twenty-fifth, 
Colonel O. H. Moore, commanding. 

The regiment was organized at Kalamazoo, Mich., and 
was encamped at that place for two months before we were 
ordered to the front or near the seat of war — Louisville, 
Ky. — about the 1st of November, 1861. Eemained there 
on Provost duty for one month, when ordered to Munfordsville, 
as Green Eiver Bridge was threatened by the Eebels, and Gen- 
eral John Morgan had given out notice that he would take his 



Lansing. 159 

Christmas dinner there, but not liking the appearance of things 
concluded to let the job out. Moved from there to Bowling 
Green, Ky., remained there during the winter, and was honored 
by the detail of chief officer commanding Patrols of the city 
and inspector of papers. The regiment ordered back to Louis- 
ville, Ky., in the Spring of 1862, but on arriving at Lebanon 
Junction disembarked from cars and ordered to pursue General 
John Morgan, with whom, after a forced march, we came up 
with and routed him at Hall's Gaps, recovering one thousand 
head of cattle he was conveying to the enemy. Soon after 
this, while stationed at Louisville, Ky. , Companies F, D, E. J 
and K ordered to Green River Bridge, after being encamped 
there about one month. The entire command, numbering 
about two hundred, was attacked by General John Morgan the 
morning of the 4th day of July, 1862, and here occurred one 
of the most memorable battles of the war, so stated by the 
leading generals of the army of the North as well as by gen- 
erals of the Southern army. 

A force of two hundred men compelled a force of four thou- 
sand eight hundred men to change their front, and by an 
oblique march pass their foe. " All honor to the boys in blue." 
I had the honor on this occasion to receive General Morgan's 
flag of truce, composed of Colonel Duke, Major Elliot and 
others, and after introducing them to Colonel Moore, he asked 
them the nature of their business, which was complied with by 
Colonel Duke, and presented him with a demand for the sur- 
render of our force unconditionally. Moore's reply was that it 
was the 4th day of July, that on any other day there might be 
a slight possibility of his entertaining it, but on that day he 
would see them dammed first. (I use the language the Colonel 
did, being angry, that the demand, as he expresed it, should be 
made on that particular day of all others, sacred to every 
American freeman.) After the battle ordered from the front, 
being the extreme outpost to Lebanon, Ky. Division then 
formed, Colonel Moore commanding, to organize at New 
Market, Ky. 

Marched through Hall's Gaps, a new military road over the 
21 



160 Lansing. 

Cumberland mountain to Lowden, Tenn. Ordered from 
this point to the state of Michigan for conscripts by General 
Burnside, receiving this order at the request of Colonel Moore, 
for gallantry at Green River fight, being second in command 
at that battle, and holding the enemy at bay with Company F 
alone, for the space of half an hour, while the Colonel was re- 
forming his new line of battle, after being flanked out of the 
first position. The second position held until the battle was 
over and the enemy retired with a respectful request to be 
permitted to bury their dead. Arrived at Grand Rapids, 
Mich., sometime in the month of November, 1863, and 
from that post was removed by order of "War Department to 
Niles, Mich., in the month of February, 1864, on recruiting 
service ; remained there until April 25th, when I was ordered 
to join my regiment in the field near Knoxville, Tenn. Joined 
regiment at Cleveland, Tenn., without delay, and after that 
participated in all the principal battles in the forward move- 
ment to Atlanta and the sea. 

Was at the battle of Stoney Face and complimented by 
General McLane for bringing the regiment in from the front, 
who had been ordered to lie down, they then being the only 
regiment charging — the line having broken on the right ar.d 
left under a withering fire of artillery from Rebel forts, and 
were flying to the rear for cover. Finding myself the ranking 
officer I ordered the men to remain in the order they were 
until we were supported by artillery, when the order was given 
by the right flank, as skirmishers at long intervals, to move to 
the timber so as not to attract the enemy's attention, and the 
command was soon restored to the lines. The good conduct 
of officers and men obeying orders saved the command from 
terrible punishment, the enemy not understanding the move- 
ment until the men were safe. 

First Brigade, Second Division, Twenty-third Army Corps, 
supported General Harker at Buzzard Roost, one of the hardest 
fights in the campaign. Wounded by a contusion at the battle 
of Besaca, received while storming the enemy's fort. The 
Twenty-fifth, the only regiment to reach the fort, when not 
being supported, were compelled to oblique march to a creek 



Lansing. 161 

on the east side of the fort, taking refuge in the water, where 
they remained until night-fall, not daring to show themselves 
in the day light for fear of being shot by the enemy in the 
fort, who were watching them. 

By record, was in one hundred battles and skirmishes for one 
hundred days, no day being out of the sound of cannon or 
musketry, with the Twenty-third Army Corps, Major-General 
Schofield commanding First Brigade, Second Division. 

The Twenty-fifth Michigan, after they had made their mark 
at Tibb's Bend, Green River, Ky., were always known as the 
" Green River boys," and always in marching in review re- 
ceived the compliments that every brave soldier does from 
soldiers belonging to other corps of the army — hearty cheers 
for their gallantry. Was mustered out of service at the end of 
the war, after going through many scenes and trials of danger 
which would fill nearly an entire book to give a description of, 
by being honorably discharged.

Captain Livingston Lansing, of the New York Seventeenth 
regiment, was with the Army of the Potomac for more than a 
year, participating in the various battles. In the Fredericksburg 
slaughter the vizor of his cap was struck by a ball which passed 
out through the cap cover ; a fragment of a shell tore a hole in 
his coat, another hit him on the hip and his horse was wounded 
in the foot. Colonel Stockton, commanding the Third brigade 
in the Fifth Army Corps, thus indorsed Captain Lansing's 
resignation when presented : 

" Respectfully forwarded and strongly recommended. Cap- 
tain Lansing has been my assistant adjutant general for most 
of the time since I assumed command of this brigade, and has 
always performed his duty most satisfactorily. He has already 
tendered his resignation a number of times for private reasons 
expressed. In the late bloody fight he was on the field through- 
out, ever efficient and prompt to carry my orders at all risks — 
fearlessly risking his life in the service of his country. I feel 
it but just that he should now be permitted to resign, as he can 
honorably do, I therefore recommend the same." 

Livingston Lansing is a lawyer and resides with his family 
in Buffalo.

QUACKENBUSH 



By some members of the family the name is supposed to 
have been derived from the dutch words " Quacken," to croak 
(like a frog) and " Boss," a bush or " Quackel," a quail, and 
Bosch, a forest. 

The name first appears on the Beverwyck and the New 
Amsterdam records, spelled Quackenbos and sometimes Quack- 
bosh or bosch, but the Albany branches of the family generally 
spell the name Quackenbush.

Judge Ira A. Eastman, died in Manchester, New Hamp-

" Judge Eastman was bom in Gilmanton, N. H., January 1, 
1809. He received a classical education and graduated at 
Dartmouth College in the class of 1829. Re, pursued the study 
of law with Judge Willard of Troy, N. Y., and upon admit- 
tance to the Bar commenced to practice in that place. He re- 
turned to Gilmanton in 1834 and opened an office there. In 
1835 he was chosen clerk of the Senate of the State of New 
Hampshire. In 18?>C he was elected a representative from his 



QaACKENBUSfl. 207 

native town to the State legislature ; was re-elected in 1837 and 
again in 1838, and during the last two years was Speaker of the 
House. In 1836 he was appointed by the Governor and 
Council, Register of Probate for Stratford County, and con- 
tinued to hold the position until 1839. In that year he was 
elected a member of the House of Representatives of the 26th 
Congress; two years later was elected to the 27th, serving with 
distinction as a member of that body from 1839 to 1843. 
After his retirement from Congress he was called to the Bench 
where he served continuously until 1859, as a Judge of Com- 
mon Pleas from 1844 to 1849, of the Supreme Court from 
1S49 to 1855, and of the Superior Judicial Court from 1855 
to his retirement from the Bench. 

In 1863 he was complimented by the Democratic party of 
New Hampshire with a nomination as candidate for Governor, 
and in 1866 he was supported by the same parly as candidate 
for United States Senator. In 1858 his "Alma Mater" con- 
ferred upon him the degree of LL. D., and in 1859 he was 
chosen one of fhe trustees of that institution, which position 
he continued to hold until his death. 

From 1834 up to the time of his decease, when not engaged 
in the performance of official duties, he was in the active and 
successful practice of his profession, in which he ranked among 
the strong men of the State. 

At the age of 27 the chosen representative of his native 
town in the Legislature of the State ; at the age of 28 Speaker 
of the House ; at 30 a representative from the Granite State in 
the National Congress ; at 35 a Judge of the Court of Com- 
mon Pleas ; at 40 a Judge of the Supreme Court ; at 50 vol- 
untarily retiring from the Bench and laying aside his judicial 
robes after fifteen years of honorable and distinguished ser- 
vice. For nearly half a century he was prominently before 
the public and an important character in the history of the 
State of New Hampshire. 

To whatever official position he was called he more than 

filled its requirements, and ever answered the just expectations 

of his friends. He was faithful to every trust. Unswerving 

fidelitv, tireless industry and marked ability were all illustrated 

27 



208 QUACKENBUSH. 

in his public life. From the beginning to the close of his 
career he ever retained the confidence and respect of the people 
whom he served so long and well. At the age of over three 
score and ten, ripe in years, rich in honors, he passed away 
without a stain to mar the fair record. Upon the Bench he 
never arrogated to himself a superior wisdom ; he gave to all a 
patient and courteous hearing ; he made the young practitioner 
feel that he had " a friend at court," and on the Bench, as in 
the Bar, he never forgot the amenities due to his professional 
associates."

Charles H. Davis, U. S. N., March 31, 1875. 

Dr. John Van Pelt Quackenbush died in Albany June 8, 
1876. 

His father John N. Quackenbush was trained to the pro- 
fession of Law, but his interests at an early period forced his 



QuAOKENBUSH. 209 

attention to other affairs, and he became largely concerned in 
the lumber trade — one of the most important departments of 
business in Albany. Dr. John Quackenbusii when a boy 
lived among his books and found his chief diversion in games 
that called into exercise his ingenuity or his love for fun. At 
school he easily maintained high rank. His preparatory studies 
for college were pursued at the Albany Academy, and he 
entered an advanced class at Williams College, joining the 
Sophomore class in 1S35; the same diligence, love of study 
and thoughtful manner characterized him in college that marked 
him at home. While in college he became a member of the 
" Sigma Phi " society. Of his studies he specially excelled in 
the Classics, and in the Junior year of his college course he 
was assigned the honor of delivering the Greek oration. He 
was honorably graduated at Williams College in 1838. He 
then commenced the study of Medicine in the office of Dr. 
Peter Wendell, of Albany, and received his diploma of Doctor 
of Medicine in 1S42 from the Albany Medical College. Dur- 
ing the period of his medical course he was noted for his 
earnest and energetic devotion to study. He opened an office 
at once, after being qualified for practice, and such was the 
early recognition of his powers that he was soon surrounded 
by a large circle of patients. It was the habit of close observa- 
tion of his' patients, the critical scrutinizing study of their 
conditions and symptoms that gave him his unequivocal con- 
fidence in his diagnosis. In 1855 Dr. Quaokenuush became 
Professor of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women at the Albany 
Medical College, where his suavity and tact made him exceed- 
ingly popular with the students. 'In 1 868 he became President 
of the Medical Society of the State of New York. He occu- 
pied the position of Surgeon-General of the State of New 
York, under the administration of Governor Seymour, for two 
years during the war of the Rebellion, which made his office 
arduous and responsible, but he conducted all its affairs with 
ability and faithfulness. He took occasion during his term of 
office to visit the theatre of war and to personally inspect the 
solders' hospitals. He took a lively interest in political matters 
and was well informed in public affairs. 



210 QuACKENBUSH. 

His latest position in his profession was that of delegate 
from the Medical Society of the State of New York to the 
International Medical Congress, to be held in Philadelphia in 
September of the Centennial year. He was famed for his 
intellectual quickness and discernment that seemed like the 
insight of genius and made his timely jndgments of great 
value. His love of justice and fair play came in to intensify 
his influence where differences existed. This love of justice 
always swayed him in matters of right and wrong. In his 
relations with his medical associates he was ever genial, affable 
and sympathetic. He early made it his rule to answer every 
summons that he could to render professional assistance and 
advice. He believed that he was responsible to God for the 
right use of his attainments in knowledge and skill in behalf 
of suffering humanity, and maintained that he would be acting 
unworthily toward himself, and contravening the humane 
spirit of a liberal profession by withholding assistance when 
invoked, because the sufferer had not recognized medical dis- 
tinctions and had become the patient of a practitioner un- 
associated with himself. — [Extracts from obituary by C. A.

. Stepheu P. Quackeubush is now a Commodore in the 
United States Navy. 

Commodoek Quackenbush entered the navy as midshipman, 
February 1840. His iirst cruise was in the Sloop of war 
" Boston," around the world, and since he has been actively 
engaged in duties pertaining to his profession. He partici- 
pated in the engagement (naval) at Vera Cruz during the 



QuACKENBUSH. 211 

Mexican war serving on board of the Sloop of war, ." Albany", 
as Passed midshipman. At the breaking out of the Rebellion, 
he was a Lieutenant on board of theU. S. Frigate " Congress," 
Flag Ship of the Brazil station. When war was declared the 
" Congress " returned home and during the continuance of the 
war he was actively engaged, commanding the following ves- 
sels, viz.: "'Delaware," "Unadilla," " Mingoe," " Pequot," 
and " Patapsco," which latter vessel was blown up by a torpedo 
off Fort Surnpter, and out of a crew of one hundred and four, 
sixty-one men were lost ; seven officers out of twelve. While 
commanding the " Unadilla," off Charleston Harbor, he cap- 
tured the blockade runner "Princess Royal," a most important 
acquisition for our government, as she was intended for a 
cruiser in the confederacy, and had on board steam engines for 
an Iron-clad ; Whitworth gnns, powder, shot and shell in large 
quantities, as also a machine for cutting steel-pointed shot. 
This was one of the most important captures for our govern- 
ment that occurred during the rebellion, and the loss to the 
Confederate government cannot be estimated. From the sale 
of this vessel and cargo, the treasury gained nearly one-quarter 
of a million dollars. While in command of the steamer 
' Pequot," he captured the blockade runner (steamer) " Don," 
having blankets for the confederate troops. His services in 
the sounds of North Carolina were recognized and appreciated 
by Flag-officer Goldsborough and General Burnside, as also by 
A r iee-admiral Rowan then captain, whose nag he carried on 
board of the " Delaware "' which ship Commander Qnacken- 
bush, then Lieutenant-commander, commanded in the battles 
of Roanoke Island, Elizabeth City and Newbern.

In 1660 Coenraedt Ten Eyck was assessed on two rods, two 
and one-half feet (Rineland measure (?), the width of his lot 
on the west side of, now, Broad street, New York, being the 
tenth lot and about twenty-five rods from the East river. The 
amount of the assessment was forty guilders (sixteen dollars) 
per foot for the building of the " Graff," or canal, which ex- 
tended from the river through the centre of Broad street 
to Beaver street. This canal was made by widening, deepen- 
ing, straightening and planking the sides of a natural rivulet 
that led from the swamp back of "Wall street to the river.

It was, however, soon ordered to be filled up, paved and made 
into a street. A sewer was laid through the street in 1703, 
from Exchange Place to Water street. In 1674 Mr. Ten Eyck 
was estimated to be worth $5,000 — a fortune in those days. 
After his death his sons Dieck, Tobias and Coeneaedt suc- 
ceeded him in business. 

2. 
Jacob,* son of (1) Coenraedt Ten Eyck and Maria Boole,

•There was a Jacob Ten Eyck in New York who, Valentine says, "married 
Neeltje Hardenbergh in that city, February 25, 1701. Nothing further is known of 
him. He had no children recorded in New York, and the probability is that it was 
a mistake in printing. Jacob of Albany was undoubtedly the son of Coenraedt, 
Sen., of New Amsterdam or New York, and removed to Albany."

VISSCHER, 



The name of Visscher Las been known in Holland from 
very early times in the history of that country, and was borne 
by men of distinction as clergymen, artists, statesmen and 
soldiers, as well as by those in the humbler walks of life. 

While many other families of the emigrants who came to 
America lost their surnames on this side of the water, the 
Visschers have retained theirs, and, although the spelling has 
been somewhat changed in many instances, the original name 
is easily recognized. We find on the records Visscher, Visger, 
Visser, De Visser, Visselaer and Vyselaer. 

The tradition in the family is that two brothers only, of this 
name, came over from Holland and settled in Rensselaerwyck. 
That one of them being a Roman Catholic was dissatisfied 
with his surroundings and returning to Holland was lost sight 
of by his relatives in this country. 

Of the five sons of the other brother three settled in or near 
Heverwyck (Albany), one in G-reenbnsh and one in Schenectady. 
From these points they spread to other localities.

Bastiaen Visscher, of Hoorn, in Holland, who was 
■ ving there in 1675, had two sons who emigrated to America 
revious to 1644, and came to Rensselaerwyck

was built the grave-stones were laid down upon the graves and 
covered with earth to the deptli of three feet. The records show 
that before this, as soon as theground was wholly occupied, it was 
customary to add a layer of earth upon the surface and commence 
burying over the top of the last tier of coffins. After the lot 
was abandoned as a place of burial, the new church yard was 
located south of the Capitol park in the vicinity of State street. 
When the excavations were made at the head of State street to 
bring the ground to a proper grade the. remains found there 
were removed to the ground now occupied by "Washington 
park.

VlSSCHEK. 277 

Colonel Vissciier is justly entitled to be called the hero of 
the family. Several accounts have been given of his courage, 
and remarkable escape from death when the family mansion 
near Cauglmawaga was attacked by the Torys and Indians in 
I7s0, under the command of his bitter enemy, Sir John 
Johnson, the fullest account of which and probably the earliest 
will he found in "Sims' Border Wars of New York." The 
following extracts are taken from Sims' and from Sanders' early 
history of Schenectady families, a highly interesting work, 
lately published : 

Colonel Visschee was married and resided a short distance 
from the paternal mansion, the other brothers John and Har- 
mon, with their sisters Geertruy and Margaret, were unmarried 
and resided with their mother at the homestead. The Visschee 
brothers were uncompromising patriots and exceedingly obnox- 
ious to their Tory neighbors, headed by Sir John Johnson. 
Apprehending invasion, and a few days before Sir John John- 
son's terrible descent on the settlement, Colonial Yissohee 
sent by bateau his young wife and infant family to Schenectady 
for safety, and. took up his residence at the homestead. On 
Sunday night, the 21st of May, 1780, Sir John Johnson, at 
the head of about 500 men, British, Indians and Tories, entered 
the Johnstown settlements from Canada by the expected 
northern route. Dividing his forces Colonel Johnson sent 
part of them, mostly Indians and Tories, to Tribes Hill under 
the direction of Henry and William Bowen, two brothers who 
had formerly lived with the Johnsons in Canada. After sack- 
ing and burning the house of Barney Hansen, the enemy pro- 
ceeded to the house of Colonel Visschee and finding it un- 
occupied they plundered it and setting it on fire hastened 
onward to the Visschee mansion, where they arrived just at 
day light. There were in the house Colonel Visschee, his 
mother, two brothers and two sisters, mentioned above. The 
attack was commenced by twenty of the enemy, who arrived 
first on the ground, who were soon followed by the main body 
of 300. The brothers defended the house for some time after 
the enemy gained an entrance below, and while fighting on the 
stairs the sisters escaped from the cellar kitchen and fled to the 



278 VlSSCHER. 

wood not far distant. Their mother, about to follow her 
daughters, was stricken down by a blow on the head from the 
butt of a musket and was left without being scalped.- The 
brothers still continued to fight until their ammunition gave 
out and the house was no longer tenable, and as the enemy 
ascended the stairs Colonel Visschkr discharged his pistol and 
throwing it behind him in token of submission, called for 
quarter. An Indian running up struck him a blow upon the 
head with a tomahawk which brought him to the floor. He 
fell upon his face and the Indian took the crown scalp from 
Ills head, which entitled him to a rewai-d, then giving him a 
gash in the back of his neck turned him over and attempted to cut 
his throat, which was only prevented by his cravat, the knife 
penetrating just through the skin. His brother, Captain John, 
as the enemy approached retreated to a corner of the room that 
he might there repel his assailants. An Indian, seeing him 
armed with a sword, hurled a tomahawk at his head which 
brought him down. He was killed outright, scalped and left 
where h,e fell. Harmon jumping from a back window 
attempted to escape, but in the' act of leaping a garden fence 
a few rods off he was shot and killed and scalped. The house 
was then plundered and set on fire. 

After the enemy had left, Colonkl Visscher's consciousness 
returned, and he discovered that his brother John was dead 
and the house on fire. Descending the stairs he found his 
mother near the door faint from the blow dealt upon her head 
and too weak to render him any assistance. With no little 
effort the Colonel succeeded in removing the body of his brother 
from the burning house, and then assisted his mother — who 
was seated in a chair the bottom of which had already caught 
lire — to a place of safety. (This chair is preserved as a sacred 
relic by the De Graff family at the Yisscher house.) And 
having carried out a bed lay clown upon it,, at a little distance 
from the house, in a state of exhaustion, where he was dis- 
covered by Black Tom, a slave belonging to Adam Ziely. 
Tom brought him water from the brook which revived him, 
and under the direction of the Colonel harnessed a span of 
horses to a wagon and took him with his mother and sisters, 



VlSSCHKE. 279 

who came out of the woods on hearing the noise of the wagon, 
and the bodies of his murdered brothers, to the river at David 
Putnam's. The family was taken across the river in a boat to 
Ephraim "Wemp's, and the Colonel's friend, seeing that he rep 
quired proper medical aid, sent him forward in a canoe to 
Schenectady. 

Colonel Yisschee bore through life the broad scar left on 
his head by the scalping-knife, and on all public occasions this 
was covered by a silver plate made for the purpose. But pre- 
vious to this he was a notable hero in the battle of Oriskany, 
which occurred August 6, 1777. In June, 1782, when Wash- 
ington made a tour through this portion of the country, an 
elegant entertainment was given him in Schenectady, on which 
occasion he placed Colonel Visschek at his right hand in 
honor of his distinguished services. 

He was appointed Brigadier-General by Governor George 
Clinton February 6, 1787, but declining to accept this office he 
was on the 27th of March following appointed first Judge of 
the Court of Common Pleas of Montgomery county, which 
office he filled with ability and honor till January 24, 1801. 
He was also a member of the Legislature of 1782.

VAN DERBOGAEKT. 



1. 

Harmen, son of Myndert Tan der Bogaert, was born in 
Holland in 1612. He came to New Amsterdam in the ship 
" Endraght," May 24, 1630, as a surgeon of the ship, having 
sailed from Texel on the 21st of March previous. He married 
Jellisje, daughter of Claas Jansen Schouw or Switts, of 
Zierickzee, in Holland, and had 

2 Frans, bp. in New York August 26, 1640 ; m. Annetje Tjerkse. 

3 Myndert H., bp. in New York May 3, 1643 ; m. (10) Helena 

SCHERMERHORN . 

4 Lysbet^m. Harmen Janse Knickerbacker. 

No other children are found on the record. 

Harmen Yan der Bogaert, in 1G38, sailed for the West 
Indies, upon which occasion he made a will leaving his property, 
in case of his death, to his wife, " the daughter of Jellisen 
Claas Janssen, of Zierickzee, provided she gave to his relatives 
six carious guilders." In 1648 his property in New Amsterdam 
was sold, and he was at Fort Orange (Albany) that year hold- 
ing the office of commissary of the fort. He came to a violent 
death in 164S. 

The names of Bogaert, Van der Bogaert and Uyt den Bogaert 
have often been confounded in this country, so much so that it 
has been difficult to trace the descendants of tlie two families 
that came to New Amsterdam. They were distinct families 
and not known to have been at all related to each other in this 
country, whatever connection there may have been in Holland.

YAN DUIESSEN. 



Petrus Tan Driessen had two sons 

2 Petrus (Dominie), m. Eva Cutler, August 26, 1712. 

3 Johannes (Dominie), m., 1st, Margarita Van Strter, July 8, 

1727 (Pearson); 2d., (20) Margariet Oothout, October 22, 
1736. 

Nothing respecting Petrus, the father, has been found 
on the Albany records by the Compiler. It is probable he 
never came to America, but that his sons were educated in 
Belgium "and came over at different times, Johannes later than 
his brother. 

2. 

Dominie Petrus Van Driessen came to Albany 
April, 1712. He was the son of (1) Petrus Van Driessen. 

He married Eva, daughter of Hendrick and Anna Ouyler, 
August 26, 1712, and had 

4 Petrus, bp. January 17,1713 ; m. Engeltje Vrooman, June, 1738. 

5 Hendrick, bp. October 30, 1715 ; removed to New York. Of 

Hendrick, the Dominie says : ." This my son Hendrick was the 
first child baptised in the new church." 

6 Johannes, bp. September 29, 1717. 

7 Anna, bp. November 15, 1719. , 

8 Maria, bp. September 16, 1722. 

Dominie Petrus Van Driessen made a will January 29, 
1737-38, leaving all his estate, both real and personal, to his 
wife Eva, during her life time, with power to sell and dispose 
of the same. In conjunction with two of her children, 
Hendrick (Henry) and Annetje (Anna), she did sell, on the 
21st day of July, 1748, the whole of the estate to Philip 



Van Driessen. 319 

Lansing for a nominal sum, and he reconveyed it to her in fee. 
Later, March 9, 1754, Petrus conveyed his interest (whatever 
that might be) to his brother Henry. 

Dominie Petkus Driessen was buried in the church at the 
foot of State street February 3, 1738. 

Eva Cutler, widow of Dominie Petrus Van Driessen, 
was buried in the church August 10, 1756. 

Dominie Van Driessen was the seventh minister of the 
" Nether Dutch Reformed Congregation of the City and County 
of Albany," succeeding Dominie Johannes Lydius. To him 
belongs the credit of having a new church erected at the foot 
of State street of stone in place of the old and decayed one 
of wood. A petition was drawn up by him June 8, 1714, and 
signed by himself and the elders and deacons of the church, 
asking the approval of Robert Hunter, captain-general and 
governor of the provinces of New York and New Jersey, of 
their purpose of building a new church. He also obtained an 
act of incorporation for the church on petition August 3, 1720, 
which was approved August 10, 1720. 

4. 
Petrus, Jr., son of (1) Dominie Petrus Van Driessen 
and Eva Cuyler, was baptised in Albany January 17, 1713; 
married Engeltje, possibly daughter of Hendrick Vrooman 
and Marytje "Wemp (Glen), (b. September 27, 1713), June, 
1738, and had 

9 John, bp. March 11, 1744 ; m. Margarita Truax, June 22, 1770. 

10 Petrus, Jr., bp. October 2, 1746 ; m. Hanna Johnson. 

11 Mary. 

12 Anna, bp. December 2, 1750. 

13 Eva, bp. September 3, 1754 ; m. Johannes De Graaf. 

Petrus Van Driessen, Jr ; , resided in Schenectady for a 
time. He made a will March 12, 1751, mentioning the above 
children. 

9. 

Johannes, son of (4) Petrus Van Driessen and En- 
geltje Vrooman, was baptised in Albany March 11, 1744; 
41 



320 Van Driessen. 

married Margarita, daughter of Isaac Truax, of Schenectady, 
June 22, 1770, and had 

14 Catalyntje, bp. June 20, 1771. 

15 Hendrick, bp. March 21, 1773. 

16 Annalje, bp. September 10, 1775. 

17 Sarah, bp. July 4, 1778. 



There was a Hendrick Tan Driessen who was pos- 
sibly the son of (4) Petrus Tan Driessen, Jr., who had 

18 Petrus, bp. May 9, 1773. 

19 Willem, bp. October 20, 1776. 

20 Hendrick, bp. May 2, 1779. 

Hendrick Tan Driessen died before his last child was born. 

3. 

Dominie Johannes, son of (1) Petrus Tan Driessen, 

married (according to Pearson) 1st Margarita Tan Stryer 
July 8, 1727. If this be correct he married 2d (20) Margariet, 
daughter of (3) Hendrick Jans Oothout and (9) Caatje Yolkers 
Douw (bp. July 13, 1701), October 22, 1736, and had 

21 Catharine, b. April 15, 1738 ; m. Abraham Lansing ; no ch. ; d. 

February 11, 1823. 

22 Rachel, m. a Salisbury, of Catskill ; no ch. 

23 Maria (Mary ?), m. 1st, Thomas Ellis March 26, 1764 ; 2d, 

Hendrick (Henry) Grevenradt, February 24, 1773. 

There is much doubt as to the correctness of this family of 
Dominie Van Dkiessen' s. The marriage of Dominie Van 
Dkiessen and that of Mary are taken from " New York mar- 
riages " published by the authority of the State. The birth 
and death of Catharine is taken from a record in a Psalm book 
originally belonging to Catharine Van Driessen in which is 
written " Maritje Oothout her book, born March 11, 1690," 
and below it " August 15, 1738, is born my eldest daughter 
and is named Catharine." In another hand is written " Catha- 
rine Van Driessen, her book," and later "1823, February 
17th, Aunt Catharine died aged 84 years. (See Grevenradt 
Bible record in this book.) Maritje Oothout died single, and 



Van Deiessen. 321 

the inference is that the book passed into the hands of Mar- 
gariet, her sister, who married Dominie Jan (Johannes) Van 
Deiessen. In settling the estate of (3) Hendrick Oothout a por- 
tion was given to (20) Margariet, wife of Jan Van Deiessen. 
Letters about this estate were received by (25) Isaac Bogart and 
(19) Hendrickie Oothout, his wife, from Dominie Jan Van 
Deiessen (written from Aquickanonck, N. J.) as late as No- 
vember 11, 1748. That Eachel was the daughter of Dominie 
Jan Van Deiessen, and that she married a Salisbury from 
Catskill and had no children, the compiler believes to be correct, 
but unfortunately has lost the reference from whence the note 
was taken. As to the marriage of Catharine to Abraham Lan- 
sing that is also in doubt. 

The Rev. Johannes (Jan) Van Deiessen was a younger 
brother of the Rev. Petrus. He was born in Holland or Bel- 
gium in 1697. . He completed his education in the latter 
country and came to America probably later than his brother 
Petrus with whom he continued his studies for the ministry. 
He was given a license to preach by the Presbytery of New 
Haven April 1^5, 1727, after sustaining a thorough examination 
in the Halls of Yale College. He was acting as the Pastor of 
the Dutch Reformed Church at Kinderhook from 1727 to 
1738, but was never regularly installed as such in consequence 
of his not having been ordained and licensed by the mother 
church at Albany. He was officiating as Pastor of the French 
church at New Paltz from 1731 to 1736, supplying also Clav- 
erack, Livingston Manor and Germantown. He received a call 
from and removed to Aquickanonck, N. J., where he remained 
till 1748, and was alive as late as the 11th of November of that 
year.

Huguenot Church at New Paltz for further "information re- 
garding him.)

Maria (Mary), daughter of (3) Dominie Johannes (Jan) 
Van Driessen, and (20) Margariet Oothout, married Hendrick

VAN DER POEL. 



A. 

Tenuis (Anthony) Cornells Van der Poel, alias 
Spitsbergen, was in Beverwyck in 1660-87 ; married Catrina, 
daughter of John Croon (and probably sister of Dirk Janse 
Croon, who was a magistrate in Beverwyck in 1655-58 and 
60), and had 

b Elizabeth, m. 1st (5) Sybrant Van Sciiaick ; 2d, Benoni Van

Teunis Tan der Poel made his will June 17, 1687, in 
which he mentioned his wife, to whom he left a house in Am- 
sterdam, Holland, which she devised to her three daughters. 
Catrina, widow of Teunis Van dee Poel, made a will Decem- 
ber 11, 1694, in which she refers to the will of her late hus- 
band Anthony Goenelis Van dee Poel and to their three 
children above-mentioned. Teunis Van dee Poel owned half 
of " Constapel's Island opposite Paerde Hoeck." In 1671 he 
was one of the magistrates of Albany. He resided in what is 
now known as Water vliet. He seems to have left no male 
descendants. 

There was a Jacobus (James) Van der Poel married in 
New York to Margaret Jans July 25, 1693. Also a Geeeit 
Van deb Poel, widower, married Deborah Warren, February 
12, 1697. 

The Van dee Poel's were originally from Gorichem 
(Groningen ?) on the Rhine. In the year 1600 they dispersed, 
one branch going to Amsterdam, in Holland, from which those 
in America are descended.

Johannes (John) Van der Poel died in Kinderhook April

was a widower when he married Nautje Staats, and that his 
first marriage took place November 8, 1736, to whom is not 
known. He devised nearly the whole of his estate to his son 
Isaac. 

His wife Annatje (Nautje), the daughter of Dr. Samuel 
Staats, was a granddaughter of Maj. Abram Staats, surgeon, 
who came to Kensselaerwyck with Dominie Megapolensis in 
1642.

Br. Samuel Staats married, 2d, Catharine Howarden, in New York, May

Dr. Samuel. Staats was a prominent leader during Leisler's 
administration of the government, and probably left New York 
soon after its collapse, and settled in Poelsburgh. His tomb- 
stone was seen at the grave-yard in that place some years since. 

The Hon. Aaron Van dee Poel in a letter to his nephew 
S. Oakley Van dee Poel, M. D., of New York, dated Jan- 
uary 17, 1867, says in relation to Annetje Staats : 

" Johannes Van dee Poel married on the Flats between 
Albany and Troy, Annetje Staats, the niece and adopted 
daughter of l Aunt Schuyler? who has been called and distin- 
guished as the ' American Lady ' by Mrs. Grant, of Edinburgh, 



330 Van dee Poel. 

who was with her father, a British officer, stationed at Albany 
more than a hundred years ago, and who has written a book 
chiefly laudatory of ' Aunt Schuyler? On page 203 of the book 
my grandmother (your great grandmother), is mentioned as 
Mrs. Van der Polen. She was the daughter of a Doctor 
Staats who had married, I think, a sister of ' Aunt Schuyler? 
and who died at my grandfather's (Johannes Van dee Poel) 
house, and was buried at Poelsburgh. His headstone was seen 
there some years ago, but I suspect the old grave-yard is now 
obliterated." 

The Hon. Aaeon Van dee Poel was probably wrong in 
supposing Annetje Staats to have been a niece of "Aunt 
Schuyler ' The American Lady.' " She was, no doubt, her 
cousin, some twenty or more years younger, and her daughter 
by adoption. 

Mrs. Schuyler was called " Aunt " by every one, a compli- 
ment to her great kindness and generosity. Judge Van dee 
Poel probably received the impression that his grandmother 
was her .niece from this circumstance.

Isaac, son of (23) Johannes (John) Tan der Poel and 
Annatje (Nautje) Staats, was born in Kinderhook, Columbia 
county, N". Y., December 8, 1747 ; married Moyca, daughter 
of Jacobus (James) Huyck and Elizabeth Van Dyck (b. October 
17, 1758), in 1783, and had

lie was removed from this position for disaffection to the 
American government. He afterwards joined the British 
forces and commanded a company of Refugees on Staten 
Island. While acting in this capacity he was taken sick, and it 
is said through the influence of his mother with her relative 
General Pieter Schuyler, a pass through the American lines 
was secured for him. She brought him home, cared for him 
until his recovery, and returned him to his company on Staten 
Island. 

His estate was confiscated by the government and he was 
thus rendered almost penniless. He was a man of extraordinary 
intellect, and of a frank, noble arid generous nature, but he 
never enjoyed a day of peace after the mistaken step he took 
in the Revolution. After his marriage he purchased a small 
farm in Chatham over the hill, about a mile and a half from 
Kinderhook Lake. He died in Chatham December 25, 1807. 

Moyca Huyuk, widow of Isaac Van dee Poel, died in 
Stuyvesant, N. Y., November 20, 1827, and was interred in 
the Kinderhook cemetery. 

Her mother Elizabeth Van Dyck was the daughter of Arent 
Van Dyck and Heyltie Van Alen. She married Jacobus 
(James) Huyck, of Pompaonie. She had three children, Arent, 
Burger and Moyca, who married as above. 

Arent Van Dyck was one of His Majesty's justices of the 
peace for the colony. He was a gentleman of education and 
talents, and the general scribe for the region in which he lived. 
He was a lineal descendant of Hendrick Van Dyck, who was the 
attorney-general of the Dutch province of New York, and who 
came from the West Indies with Governor Stuyvesant. He 
and Stuyvesant were two obstinate Dutchmen, and seem to 
have quarreled all the way from the West Indies to New York.

Anna Doll, widow of Judge James Yan dee Poel, died in 
Albany March 14, 1855. 

" For many years previous to his appointment to the Bench, 
Judge Yan dee Poel had acquired a high reputation at the 
Bar and was prominent in public and professional life among 
eminent men of Columbia county. As circuit judge of the 
Third Judicial district of the State he was distinguished for 
learning, ability and promptitude, for rapid and clear-sighted 
views of the law and the facts, as he was also in his intercourse 
with his fellow-citizens for all manly and honorable qualities. 
But if his public life was honorable and elevated, his domestic 
life was eminently beautiful. He was truly the venerated and 
beloved centre of a family circle that appreciated the great and 
good qualities that shed a lustre over his life and sustained and 
cheered the long period of his illness. To all indeed who were 
allied to him by the ties of family or kindred, or who came 
within the circle of his friendship, he was an object of the 
highest respect and the warmest attachments."

" Dr. S. Oakley Van der Poel, late Health officer of the 
Port of New York, was born at Kinderhook, Columbia county, 
February 22d, 1824. His father was a physician of consider- 
able local celebrity, and other members of the family have be- 
come prominent in various departments of intellectual effort 
and business enterprise. His boyhood and youth were passed 
in his native place, and much out-doo'r life in that beautiful 
and healthful district contributed to the development of a 
vigorous and robust constitution. At an early age he completed 
his preparatory training in the Kinderhook Academy, and en- 
tered upon his collegiate course in the University of New York, 
of which institution the venerable and scholarly Theodore 
Frelinghuysen was then Chancellor. Bearing its diploma, he 
returned to begin the study of medicine with his father, and 



Van dee Poel. 337 

after a thorough course at home and in the institution, gradu- 
ated at Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, in the spring 
of 1845. For the next two yeai*s he was associated in business 
with his father. But he still regarded his labors as only pre- 
paratory to the real professional career he had marked out, and, 
in the fall of 1847, went to Paris to pursue his studies with 
the superior advantages belonging to that brilliant capital. It 
was a remarkable period. Paris was in the midst of profound 
agitation. The unpopular ministry of Guizot and the tremb- 
ling throne of the citizen king were tottering to their fall. 
This political ferment culminated in the violent revolution of 
February, 1848, ending in the abdication of Louis Phillipe, 
and the proclamation of the Second Republic. Dr. Van dee 
Poel witnessed these memorable and turbulent scenes, and, as 
the seething tumult was un propitious to the calm prosecution 
of studies, he traveled through the south of France and Italy 
witnessing at Lyons, Marseilles, Naples, Rome, Florence and 
Milan, the various acts of the revolutionary drama then ex- 
citing all Europe. Immediately after the bloody days of June 
he returned to the French capital and remained for a consider- 
able period. In the spring of 1850 he settled in Albany where 
he speedily acquired a remunerative practice, which continued 
thereafter flattering and progressive. . He was soon after mar- 
ried to Gertrude, daughter of Dr. Peter Wendell, Chancellor 
of the Regents of the University. In 1857 Governor King 
appointed him Surgeon-General of the State, and three years 
later he was chosen President of the Albany County Medical 
Society, being also re-elected the following year. In 1861 he 
was again invited to the office of surgeon-general by Governor 
Morgan. The position proved in this case not one of mere 
empty honor. The inauguration of the war, shortly after his 
term began, imposed duties and responsibilities »far more ardu- 
ous, delicate and important than had ever before devolved upon 
that or any other similar position in this country. It became 
necessary, without the guide of precedent or experience, to 
improvise a vast and systematic bureau, meeting every require- 
ment attaching to the complete medical organization of a great 
force. There were many militia regiments to be promptly 



338 Van dee Poel. 

provided with medical supplies and instruments as they hurried 
to the held. There were numerous volunteer regiments rapidly 
assembling, requiring immediate care for their sick and atten- 
tion to their permanent organization. There were hundreds 
of surgeons and assistants coming from every section of 
the State, representing every grade of the profession, 
whose qualifications were' to be examined and decided. 
New regiments were uninterruptedly organized and old 
regiments demanded constant attention, even after they 
had passed into the service of the United States, in order that 
a competent medical staff might be maintained. This last duty 
was made peculiarly harassing and exhausting by the crude system 
of the General Government during the first two years of the 
war. In many cases the medical officers no sooner became con- 
versant with their duties than the novelty and romance vanished, 
their resignations were offered and accepted, and the surgeon 
general required to fill the vacancies with such prompitude 
that the public service should suffer no detriment. The magni- 
tude of. the responsibility and the severity of the labor thus 
imposed, may be judged from the fact that there were between 
six and seven hundred positions upon the medical staff to be 
kept filled with competent officers. A. still more significant 
testimony is embodied in the statement that at one time the 
surgeon general was called upon to make over five hundred ap- 
pointments in the space of six weeks. Nor was this all. He 
was obliged to establish and perfect a system of promotion 
which should be just, without favoritism, and confer reward 
without impairing the efficiency of the service. His patronage 
was immense. With hundreds of officers in this department, 
upon whose respective merits none bnt himself could decide, 
it required a nice sense of honor and a wise discrimination to 
distribute the appoiutments in such a way that the good of the 
general service might be harmonized with a recognation of just 
personal claims. Nothing could put the professional acquire- 
ments and the executive talents of a man to a severer test than 
these varied, complicated and difficult duties ; and it is but to 
repeat the judgment of the highest authorities to say that they 
were performed by Dr. Van dee Poel with signal ability. His 



Van der Poel. 339 

successful administration elicited the official approval of both 
the Secretary of War and the Governor of the State, and con- 
stitutes an important chapter in the association of New York 
with the great contest. In 1867 he was appointed to the chair 
of General Pathology and Clinical Medicine in the Albany 
Medical College, which he held for three years, and then re- 
signed for personal reasons. About the same time he was 
appointed a manager of the State Lunatic Asylum at Utica, a 
position, still retained. In February, 1870 he was elected Presi- 
dent of the Medical Society of the State of New York, the 
highest recognition in the power of his professional brethren 
to bestow. Dr. Van dek Poel was in 1872 called by Governor 
Hoffman to take charge of the Quarantine Department of the 
Port of New York as Health Officer of the Port. The irregu- 
larities of this office for many years had been the theme of dis- 
cussion in legislative councils and commercial conventions, and 
nothing in the way of reform seemed effective. The antagon- 
isms of commerce and quarantine were developed to the fullest 
extent. In this field, with all its complications, there was full 
scope for the executive ability which Dr. Van dek Poel had 
displayed so often before. Taken as it really exists, and exe- 
cuted honestly, this is the highest medical office in the world. 
To Dr. Van dee Poel is due the credit of restoring it to its 
true position. His first action was to reduce the various parts 
of it to one system. The enormous expenditures, averaging 
more than a quarter of a million annually for some years, had 
grown into a heterogeneous organization without much system. 
Taking charge of it purely as a sanitary interest, Dr. Van dee 
Poel placed in the hands of those who owned merchandise and 
ships, the work which had to be done on their vessels, and 
which thus could be done by them under the ordinary business 
rules that controled such things elsewhere. The quarantine 
law, which had grown by successive enactments into an au- 
thority for oppressive administration, was codified and relaxed 
from some if its provisions, only retaining what was necessary 
of sanitary restraint for the public safety, and these changes 
urged upon the legislature. For the first time in the history of 
quarantine, we find commerce sustaining it. Mercantile as- 



340 "Van deb Poel. 

sociations passed complimentary and approving resolutions, and 
petitioned the legislature in favor of every change recom- 
mended by Dr. Van der Poel. Branches of trade which had 
left New York apparently forever, to avoid the expenses in- 
cident to their quarantine detention, are returning. In all this 
there is no relaxation of sanitary restraint necessary for the pro- 
tection of the whole northern and western United States, which 
depend upon this port for their immigrations, but sanitary 
regulations which the doctor considered as his legitimate care, 
were made more strict than before ; the whole success of his 
administration being the judicious " re- arrangement of the 
system under curtailed expenses, and the exercise of the same 
executive ability for which he had been distinguished in previ- 
ous positions. In January, 1876, he was elected to the chair of 
Theory and Practice of Medicine in the Albany Medical College, 
a position which, with his duties of Health Officer of the Port, 
he has since earnestly sustained. As a physician he is equally 
learned in theory, and skillful in practice. To large native 
endowments he adds the highest cultivation. An extensive 
library, whose ample stores are carefully enriched with all the 
latest publications, both American and foreign, keeps him fully 
abreast of the ripest thought and best achievements in medical 
science. He has also a keen taste for general literature, and, 
besides being a successful physician, is a gentleman of large 
public spirit and genial culture." — [From the Contemporary 
Biography of New York.]

Damen, widow, in 1664. 

3. 

Cornells, son of (1) Hendrick Gerritse Van Nes, was 

betrothed to Mayken, daughter of Hendrick Adriaensen 
Burchgraeff, July 31, 1625 (notarial papers county clerk's office,

8 Grielje, m. Pieter Claas, of Amertsfort, L. I. 

Mayken Burchgraeff, wife of Cornelis Van Nes, made a will 
June 12, 1635, and died probably about that time. He married, 
2d, Maria Damen, in 1664, widow, first, of Dirk Van Eps ; 
second, of Hendrick Andriese Van Doesburgh. By Van Eps 
she bad Jan and Elizabeth, who married Gerrit Banker. By

Martin Cregier. 

Cornelis Van Nes and his first wife lived, when first mar- 
ried, in 1625, upon the Hazendyck, in Holland. His wife's 
mother, Annetje Jansc, of Loeckervelt, in 1630, left her a 
44

legacy of three morgens of land in Scherpenwyck. March 24, 
1664, he was "Kaets Persoon" (magistrate) of Rensselaerwyck 
and still widower of Mayken Burchgraeff. He, with Hendrick 
Burchgraeff, Roelff Cornelis (Yan Houten), husband and 
guardian of Gebeitse Coenelis Van Ne6, (1) Jan Jants Oothout,

Van Nes. 345 

Maritje Teller, wife of Gerrit Van Nes, died about 
1707. She had a son William by Van Alen, and probably a 
daughter. In a will made by her and her husband Gerrit 
Van Nes, December 6, 1707, they refer to a contract made 
February 14, 1676-7, before they were married, according 
to which William Van Alen," mariner, was to have property 
belonging to his mother, wife of Gerrit Van Nes, at her 
decease, provided Jannetje, the wife of Lourens Van Schaick, 
a daughter of (1) Jan Jans Oothout (niece of Gerrit Van Nes), 
and (4) Mayeke (another daughter fo (1) Jan Jans Oothout), 
the wife of (6) Thomas Harmense Hun, have an amount of 
equal value in clothing. 

Gerrit Van Nes made a will March 10, 1715, proved July 
2, 1715, in which he mentions his deceased wife Maria, William 
Van Alen and niece (Mayeke), the wife of (6) Thomas Har-

have been born eight years after the records say Captain Drayer was married.

VAN YECHTEN. 



In " O'Callaghan's History of New Netherlands" mention 
is made of Tennis Cornelisseu Tan Vechten as succeeding 
Miehaelse Jansen on his farm in 1646, and as living in 1648 at 
the south end of Greenbnsh, Rensselaer county, N. Y. Also 
of Tennis Dircksen Van Yechten who came to this country 
with wife, child and two servants in the Arms of Norway, 
and had a farm in 1648 at Greenbush, north of that occupied 
by Teunis Cobnelissen Van Vechten. He is referred to 
in 1663 as an old inhabitant. Of the former nothing further 
has been* found on the record. The children of the latter 
settled in Rensselaerwyck and on the banks of the Hudson 
below Fort Orange. The following notes relate chiefly to the 
Catskill branch of the family, and were furnished in part by 
Henry Brace, Esq., of New York. 

1. 
Teunis/' son of Dirckse Van Vechten, as stated above, 
came to this country in the " Arms of Norway," with wife, 
child and two servants, in 1638, and settled in Greenbnsh. 
They had living in 1700 : 

2 Dirck T., m. Jannetje Michielse Vrklant. 

3 Cornells T., m., 1st, Sara Salomense Goewey, in 1668; 2d, 

Annatje Leendeutse ; 3d, Maria Luoase, widow of Jacob 
Claase, July 3, 1689.

daughter of (1) Volckert Jans Douw. 

5 Pietertje, m. Mtndert Frederickse Van Yveren, in 1663. 



♦The defendants of Tennis Dirckse Van Vechten, with the exception of the 
family of (2) Dirck Teunise Van Vechten, were taken from Professor Pearson's 
" First Settlers of Albany."

3o4 Van Vechtkn. 

of ray executor hereafter named, nothing doubting, but at 
the general resurrection I shall receive the same again through 
the sorrowful sufferings, painful death and joyfull resurrection 
of my Blessed Saviour and Mighty Redeemer Jesus Christ, 
being thereby fully persuaded to obtain full pardon and re- 
mission of all my sins and to inherit everlasting life. To which 
the Holy Trinity one eternal Deity, be all honor, power and 
glory, world without end, Amen.

seized of fee and in actual possession of and as touching all

366 Van Vechten. 

" This distinguished lawyer and statesman was the youngest 
son of Teunis Van Veciiten and Judith Ten Beoeck. Few 
men have been called to so extensive a sphere of usefulness and 
tilled it so long and well as Abraham Van Vkchten. He en- 
tered upon the scenes of active life shortly after the Revolu- 
tionary war. He received his elementary education at a public 
school in Esopus, which has been the nursery of many of our 
distinguished men. He pursued his prof essional studies under 
the direction of the late Chancellor Lansing, and began to 
practice law in the county of Montgomery, but was soon in- 
vited to occupy a more extensive field in the city of Albany. 
The high places of the bar were then filled by a gifted race of* 
advocates, among whom were Hamilton, Harrison, Burr, Jones 
and Livingston. But the brilliancy of the bar could not cast 
young Van Veciiten in the shade. He soon ranked among 
his illustrious seniors as an equal and a competitor for the 
highest professional eminence. Untiring in his efforts, the 
powers of his highly-gifted mind were continually developed 
and expanded. His intellect was formed to grapple with the 
most abstruse and difficult of judicial investigations, and he 
early inured himself to the most intense application of mental 
industry. In acuteness and the ready comprehension of any 
subject presented for his investigation, he had few equals. 
And nature seemed to have furnished him with powers emi- 
nently adapted to the illustration of legal principles. He made 
no display of legal lore, his learning seemed to be incorporated 
with his thoughts. What he had once read was well digested 
and remained ever ready for application. A large portion of 
his life was spent in the discussion of legal questions in onr 
highest tribunals of law and equity ; there he was always 
listened to with profound attention by our most eminent judges. 
His arguments were calculated to elucidate and instruct, and 
greatly to aid the tribunals to which they were addressed, in 
forming correct conclusions. His style was remarkable for 
purity, perspicuity and strength. His train of thought was 
un impassioned, yet earnest and forcible. His talents were too 
conspicuous to allow him to confine his efforts to the bar. He 
was repeatedly chosen to represent his fellow citizens in both 



o 



Van Vkchtkn. 367 

brandies of the Legislature. The Senate chamber was the 
theatre of some of his highest intellectual efforts. As a mem- 
ber of the court for the correction of errors, he has left behind 
him enduring monuments of his legal wisdom. For a number 
of years he filled the office of Attorney-General with distin- 
guished ability. At an early period of his life a seat on the 
bench of the Supreme Court was offered him by Governor 
Jay, a similar offer was made to him at a later period. He de- 
clined these proffered honors, preferring the labors of the bar 
as more congenial to his habits and feelings. The causes in 
our books of reports, in which he took part as counsel, numer- 
ous as they are, give but a faint idea of the amount of pro- 
fessional labor performed by him. For more than half a 
century his brilliant mind was constantly shedding its light 
over the jurisprudence of the State. The bar had long de- 
lighted to accord to him the highest honors it could bestow. 
To the younger members of the profession he had greatly en- 
deared himself by his kindness and courteous manners, and by 
all he was venerated as an illustrious model of professional 
excellence. In his daily consultations with his clients he was 
emphatically a peacemaker. It was his constant habit to advise 
the settlement of disputes whenever it was practicable. He 
allowed no sordid motives to influence his advice nor to bias 
his mind in giving his opinions. He was Recorder of the city 
of Albany from 1797 to 1808; State Senator from 1798 to 
1805, and from 1816 to 1820 ; member of Assembly from 1805 
to 1815 ; Attorney-General of the State for the year 1810, and 
was again appointed in 1813, and served two years, and was a 
member of the Constitutional Convention of 1821. His char- 
acter as a citizen in the private walks of life afforded a model 
of excellence. He constantly displayed in his intercourse with 
his neighbors and acquaintances the most amiable social qualities 
which adorn the human heart. To his other traits of character 
was added one which is justly deemed of far the most impor- 
tance, he was a sincere believer in the Saviour of the World, 
and a venerated member of the Dutch Reformed church. In 
her judicatories his paternal counsels were listened to with 
reverence, as eminently calculated to promote the peace and 
47

prosperity of the church. His disinterestedness was a promi- 
nent feature in his character, and was the foundation of that 
unbounded confidence which was reposed in him by all who 
knew him. In his domestic circle he was remarkable for kind- 
ness and affectionate attention to the feelings and wants of 
those who were dependent upon him." — ['Munsell's Annals of 
Albany.

"Hon. Teunis Van Vechten died at his residence in Broad-

city from 1837 to 1838. He graduated with high honors at 
Union College and commenced the study of law in the office 
of Chancellor Lansing. He continued the practice of the pro- 
fession, at different times, with Recorder Baldwin, John Davis, 
Daniel Cacly and Charles M. Jenlrings, until his illness, in 
February, 1S50. Upon the deatli of his uncle, the venerable 
and distinguished Abraham Van Vechten, he became the 
counsel and adviser of General Stephen Van Rensselaer (the 
Patroon) in the" manorial controversies. He had the deserved 
reputation of being a sound discriminating lawyer, and was in 
all respects a man of mark. He was a representative man of 
his race and nation, cherishing the traditional traits of his 
Holland ancestry, their scrupulous integrity, industry, economy, 
family devotion and hospitality. He was proud of his native 
city and true to its interests. He might have aspired to the 
positions due to an extended reputation and liberal fortune, but 
he was contented to bo an Alderman or Supervisor or Mayor 
of the city of his birth, a director in its moneyed institutions and 
a manager of its charitable and religious societies." — [Albany

WENDELL 



The following genealogy of some of the branches of the 
Wendell family was compiled from documents left by the late 
John L. Wendell, Esq., in possession of Mr. William Wen- 
dell, of Albany, N. T., at whose expense they were arranged 
by Dr. C. B. O'Callaghan, and from Prof. J. Pearson's " Albany 
Families," and from other data obtained by the compiler. The 
greater part is taken from the documents above mentioned, as 
being the most reliable, from the fact that Mr. William Wen- 
dell had access to all the records in the hands of the different 
members of the family and devoted much time and study to 
perfect its genealogy.

year 1642 ; married, 1st, Susanna, daughter of Du

ing her widowhood, but in case she should remarry the estate 
was to be divided, whereof she was to receive one-third and 
the children two-thirds, share and share alike without prefer- 
ence of sex, to be paid to each on attaining majority. To each 
of his daughters he gave in addition a Psalm-book with silver 
clasps, and to Elsje a silver cup marked " J. W. " ; to Har- 
manus the new Bible, a fowling piece and fourteen dozen silver 
buttons attached to the testator's clothes ; to Evert his chest 
with his .name thereon and his silver shirt buttons. What 
further belonged to the testator's body was to be divided among 
his sons. Tc^Johannes he left a silver goblet with the testator' s 
name thereon. By a codicil dated March 3, 1690-1, he 
ordered the just half of all his real and personal property to be 
given to his wife, to whom he left also a special legacy of 
twenty-five heavers (beaver skins).

Jacobus Wendell died September 7, 1761. He removed 
from Albany to Boston, Mass., where he became a merchant. 
He was, in 1733, a Director of the First Bank of Massachusetts, 
Colonel of the Boston Regiment in 1742, member of the 
Governor's Council from about 1737 to 1750, and Commis- 
sioner from Massachusetts to the conferences with the Indians 
at Albany in 1744, 1745 and 1750. 

Sakah Oliveb, widow of Jacobus Wendell, died in Boston 
July 22, 1762. 

Sir Jonah Barrington says : " Dress has a moral effect on 
mankind. Let any gentleman find himself with dirty boots, 
old surtout, soiled neckcloth and a general negligence of dress, 
he will in all probability find a corresponding disposition, by 
negligence of address. We should perhaps feel the force of 
this could we but see one of the ' solid men of Boston ' of olden 
times, as he came down State street at the hour of high change, 
then twelve o'clock. His appearance would cause as much or 
more excitement than that of the Turkish Ambassador, who 
recently made us a visit. Col. Jacob Wendell, merchant, 
who died in 1761, is thus described : ' His dress was rich, being 
a scarlet embroidered coat, gold-laced cocked hat, embroidered 
long waistcoat, small clothes, with gold knee buckles, silk 
stockings with gold clocks, shoes and large gold or silver buckles, 
as the importance of the occasion or business demanded, full 
ruffles at the bosom and wrists, and walking with a gold-headed 
cane.' Now we have a portrait of one of the old school gentle- 
man of a century ago."

Invert Wendell was a lawyer and Commissioner for Indian 
Affairs from 1724 to 1734, also Commissioner for receiving 
fines under the Oswego act of 1727. He made a will dated 
July 29, 1749, which was proved June 20, 1750, in which he 
gives to his oldest son Johannes all his surveying instruments 
and law books in lieu of all claims he may have to his father's 
estate, whether real or personal, "for reasons to him best 
known " ; to his other surviving children he gave all his real 
estate in the town of Schenectady ; to his " dear, trusty, faith- 
ful, beloved, honest son Abraham," he left all his lands, houses 
and premises on both sides of the Beaver Kill, Albany, with 
the saw mill, dam, saws, grist mills, grinding stones, brew house, 
kettles, orchard, etc., horse, cow, pleasure sleigh, and large 
Holland gun, marked with his name on the lock ; also two lots 
in the south part of Albany ; one lot in the north part of said 
city on condition that he pay his father's debts, if he keep said 
lots ; also a farm on Norman's Kill on condition of paying the 
tenth of the produce to the lord of the manor, according to 
the custom of the Colonie of Rensselaerwyck ; to his youngest 
son Philip he bequeathed his dwelling-house and lot in the first 
ward of Albany, with all his pasture land on both sides of 
the Rutten Kill, with right to his, the testator's widow, and his 
two unmarried daughters Elizabeth and Engeltje to occupy 
said house and lots whilst sole. Philip was also to remain 
with his sisters as long as he remained unmarried, and the 
testator's meaning is " that they shall never be put out of 
doors as long as they remain unmarried." He is also to have 
free grinding of his bread corn at the mill left to Abraham, 
two chocolate pots and pans, and he and Abraham are to build 
a chocolate mill in which Abraham may grind fifty pounds of 
chocolate yearly ; he is likewise left his father's wearing apparel 
and one gun and his large clock ; to each of his three daugh- 
ters Ariaantje, Elizabeth and Engeltje lie left one-third of a lot 
of pasture in the south part of the city of Albany " just behind

the stockades." The remainder of his estate, real and personal, 
negro slaves, horses, cows, gold and silver plate, debts and 
bonds, were to be divided, share and share alike, among his 
five aforesaid children, viz., Abraham, Ariaantje, Engeltje, 
Elizabeth and Philip. The executors to his will were his 
son Abraham and his daughter Engeltje. 

The names, dates of births, marriages and deaths of Evekt 
Wendell's children, etc., were taken from the family record 
of Philip Wendell, Esq., by Dr. O'Callaghan. This is the 
Evert Wendell that Prof. Pearson supposes may have been 
the son of (4) Johannes Wendell, and who appears in this 
record under Family No. 31.

While workmen were making excavations for the piers to 
support the main floor of the addition to the Public market on 
Beaver street, in Albany, November 8, 1882, they came across 
a head-stone and a number of human bones. The tablet is of 
brown stone, similar to the others taken out, and bears a fan- 
tastical face in the scroll work on the top. On the slab is 
the following inscription : 

Hier Leydt Het Ligliaem 

Van Harmanis Wendell 

Out 57 taer Obit den 13 

February, Anno Domini 1771. 

This interpreted means : " Here lies the body of Hermanis 
Wendell, aged 57 years, died the 13th of February, in the year 
of our Lord 1771."

Cornelius Wendell died October 9, 1870, at Northampton, 
Mass. 

Coknelis Wendell had been during all his life-time a con- 
spicuous man in his business avocation, in the political world, 
in the social sphere, and in the many associations with which 
he has been connected. Starting in youth as a humble ap- 
prentice in the typographical calling, he rose steadily to the 
proprietorship of a prominent daily journal, to the responsible 
position of government printer at Washington, and to the oc- 
cupancy of several other public trusts, and in all these stations 
he so distinguished himself by his energy, fitness, talent, and 
social qualities, that he had acquired a fame throughout the 
country, exceeded in extent by but few men. He learned, or 
at least the rudiments of the " art preservative of all arts," in 
the printing office of Denio & Kichards, who then published 
the Daily Morning Chronicle, commencing his indentureship 
in 1828. It was a political newspaper, established to promote 
the re-election of John Quincy Adams to the Presidency. Upon 
leaving that office he was employed in the extensive establish- 
ment of Obadiah Van Benthuysen, where he finished his trade. 
While still at work as a journeyman, he, with several others of 
like position in the craft, started a newspaper entitled The 
Albanian, which, though ably managed, did not long survive. 
In 1840, associated with Mr. George Vance, he published a 
vigorous Democratic campaign paper called The Plaindealer. 
In 1840 the Albany Atlas entered upon its busy life and event- 
ful career, under tutelage of Vance & Wendell as proprietors, 
and William Cassidy as editor. M r - Wendell's connection 
with that journal ceased upon his removal to Washington, in 
or about 1851, to assume a leading position in the government 
printing office, and of which he subsequently became the head. 
He never held any public office except the one last mentioned, 
though during the administrations of Presidents Buchanan and 
Johnson he was assigned to the discharge of several missions 
of importance and of intimate relationship to the government. 
In these positions, as well as in all his other relations in life, 



4o8 "Wendell. 

Mk. Wendell so demeaned himself by his courtesy, his intel- 
ligence, his candor and his generous instincts as to extort the 
good . opinion and the warmest admiration of all to whom 
he became known. He was, perhaps, best known in this city, 
where lie spent the earlier period of his life, and with which 
he has ever kept alive and fresh his social attachments. With- 
out being in any wise obtrusive in disposition or manner, his 
presence every where and at all times, by the charm of his ad- 
dress, assuredly brought to hi in a circle of friends who delighted 
to join in the presence of his society. He attached himself 
while here to several associations, in all of which he was 
assigned to an active and prominent part. He was one of the 
projectors and first members of the Albany Burgesses Corps, 
and so long as he could, continued to be an active member. 
When his relations to that company were necessarily sundered 
by his removal from the city, he continued to retain all possible 
connection witli it. Several years since he inaugurated a plan 
of giving each year, as a prize to the best soldier, an elegant 
medal, and upon each recurrence of the day of the organization 
of the company that medal has been bestowed. He has warmly 
kept alive all his social relations in this city, and his death now 
will awaken a sentiment of sorrow as fervent and as wide-spread 
as would the announcement of the decease of any person that 
ever lived among us. Though during nearly his whole life- 
time he has been more or less actively employed in the business 
of politics, he has never, by speech or conduct, given offence. 
Towards political adversaries he has ever been courteous and 
magnanimous. And so it will transpire that the remembrance 
of his political sentiments or action, will never endure in their 
memories to lessen in the least the regret that his deatli shall 
awakeu. — [Albany Morning Express.

Fifty Years in Business. 
Announcement is made elsewhere of the retirement from 
active business pursuits of Mr. William Wendell, who 
thus terminates a career in the prosecution of the jeweler's 
trade, extending over precisely half a century In a series of 
articles published in The Journal on " Old Albany Firms " Mr. 
Wendell's methods and movements were discussed at some 
length, and the moral pointed that honest endeavor and strict 
adherence to rigid rules must result in the meeds of prosperity. 
Fifty years ago Mr. Wendell, than an ambitious youth in his 
teens, was bound out to Henry Hoyt, a jeweler, whose humble 
shop occupied the present site of the Argus building. At the 
bench the young apprentice proved himself an expert at his 
trade. Subsequently entering the establishment of John H. 
Mulford on State street, now occupied by Gray's book store, he 
was received as a partner in 1842. The principle which ad- 
vanced his prospects at that time, became his own guide in 



410 Wendell. 

business thereafter. Whenever Mr. Wendell found behind 
his own counters a spirit which had justified sufficient con- 
fidence, he never hesitated to reward it with an interest in his 
business. William P. Feltman, Richard H. Roberts and James 
H. Leake, the latter his present partner, were at one time and 
another elevated from clerkships to association with him, where 
they shared the profits of his business. During Mr. Wendell's 
protracted career, he has at no time failed in the respect of the 
people with whom he dealt. His retirement, the rest and 
relief of which has been earned by arduous toil, will be passed 
in the enjoyment of a competency got by strict integrity. —

" He was a prominent citizen and a member of the firm of 
Griimell, Minturn & Co., of which he was the master spirit. 
He was in its best and broadest sense a ' merchant prince,' 
an enterprising citizen, a practical philanthropist and a devoted 
Christian. He rendered efficient aid in the establishment of 
Castle Garden as an emigrant depot, and was one of the Emi- 
grant Commissioners. He took an active interest in establish- 
ing Central Park in New York and was one of the first pro- 
moters of the object. In the palmiest days of New York's 
commercial prosperity, he was one of those distinguished alike 
for enterprise, intelligence, public spirit, patriotism, liberality, 
and last but by no means least, for their bountiful and refined 
hospitalities.' '

BOGART. 



285. 

(See page 45.) 

Henrietta Bogart, widow of Abraham S. Bkixckebhoff, 
died November 28, 1882. 

Entered into rest on lier 85£/t birthday, 
Mrs. Henrietta Bogart Brinckerhoff. 

Few among us are called upon to live bo continuously a life of self- 
denial as Mrs. Brinckerhoff did, from first to last, thinking always of others 
and what she could do for their real good. Her devotion to a large family 
circle and to her invalid sister for many many years, in the midst of cares 
and responsibilities as the head of a prosperous school, called forth always 
my admiration and caused others as well as myself to exclaim that Mrs. 
Brinckerhoff was the Saint. " Faithful unto death " must surely have 
been her watchword as she patiently bore her cross on earth waiting for 
her crown in Paradise. 

And so it came to pass that late in the evening of her unselfish life, in 
the darkness of night the " Angels came and tenderly bore her for whom 
they had waited long, knowing that even here she was learning their 
blessed song." 

" They bore her soul away 
Beyond the fading stars . 
To the brightness of the day."

(Year gone) (1662?) The 27th of June on Tuesday, between 6 and 7 o'clock 
in the evening, was I (25 Van Driessen) Hendrick Grevenradt born in 
New York, and baptised in presence of Samuel Drisses and Engeltje 
Jeverient (probably Van Yeveren.) (He was the son of Isaac Greven- 
radt and Lysbet Juriaens, who were married March 24, 1652, in New 
York, where he resided.) The New York records show he was born in 
June, 1662. 

1667, the 5th of September, being about — o'clock in the evening I, Sara 
Sanders, was born at Albany and baptised in presence of Jan Harper- 
dinger and Sara Sanders. (She was the daughter of Robert Sanders 
and Elsje Barents, and granddaughter of Thomas Sanders, of Amster- 

' dam, Holland, and Sarah Cornelisse Van Gorcum, of New Amsterdam.) 

168G, the 5th of May, was I, Hendrick Grevenradt, married to Sara 
Sanders in Albany. 

1687, the 20th of December, was born my first daughter Elizabeth, bap. 
tised in Albany in presence of Robbert Sanders and Elsse Sanders. 

1690, the 24th of March my daughter died in New York.

venradt. 

1692, the 5th of June, on Saturday at 6 o'clock in the morning was born 
my third daughter Elizabeth; baptised in New York in presence of 
Andries Grevenradt and Maritje Silius. 

1695, the 27th of Jnly, on Saturday between 11 and 12 o'clock before noon,

Van der Speighel and Mayeke Harperding. 

1697, July 24, was my fourth daughter, named Maria, baptised in New 
York in presence of Barent Sanderse and Ameleya Sanderse. 

1698, August 8, my daughter Maria died. 

In another hand is written (probably by his wife) : 

1699, July 21, was my (laeste) youngest son named Hendericus (born), and 
in presence of Anna Van der Spiegle and Tomas Sanderson baptised by 
Hendrickus Seleynis. 

1699, March 16, my (Hueysman) husband died, and on the 3d of August

Saturday night about midnight, and was buried on Monday. My dear 
mother was 58 years old when she rested in the Lord. (This appears to

be a repetition of the death above as occurring a year later. The latter 
is correct, as the record of interments shows that Sara Grevenradt was 
buried on the 12th of June, 1727, but the age 58 years does not tally with 
the record of her birth by one year and nine months.) 

In another hand (probably that of his son Isaac's wife and 

inserted here out of place, as it should have come in later and 

after the death of Isaac, her father) is written : 

1761, April 8, my daughter, Else Greverat, rested in the Lord on Thursday

EEOOED OF BU REALS. 



Copy of a book kept by Barent Bradt of the burials in the 
Reformed Dutch Church graveyard and upder the church in 
the city of Albany, from 1722 to 1757 inclusive. Previous to 
1703 Hendrick Roseboom was clerk or sexton, and was suc- 
ceeded in that year by Anthony Bradt, father of Barent. The 
first burial recorded under Barent Bradt's administration was 
that of Teunis (Anthony) Bradt, his father. 

This copy was made from the original book owned by the 
Hon. Harmanus Bleecker, by the compiler of this work, and 
subsequently, at bis suggestion, was published in Munsell's An- 
nals of Albany. 

The compiler has introduced, in parentheses, only such 
explanations as were found necessary to show the relation to 
the families in this work.

HAMLIN. 



Tlit' Hamlin's are of trench origin ; they caine to England 
alto lit luSO. Tradition says that two brothers came to New 
England and settled at Barnstable Mass. Jamkb, probably the 
eldest, brought his wife and at least one child with him, and 
remained permanently at Barnstable (iii.ios, a sen captain, 
soon went to Middletown, Conn., and made that place, his home. 
.Tamks, with his family, came to America in 1640. Gilkb, his 
brothel', a single man, probably came later, though this is not 
known. To the Barnstable family is traced the lineage of

John H*amlin, in the year 1770, at the age of thirteen, re- 
moved with his parents to Cnnimington three years before it 
took the municipal rank of a town. It was among the most 
distinct of his recollections that while at Northampton, on his 
way to (Jummington, the news of our country's Declaration of 
Independence reached that town, surprising yet rejoicing the 
inhabitants. At the age of sixteen lie entered the service of 
his country for the maintenance of this declaration, in which 
service he continued about tix months. For this he was subse- 
quently moderately pensioned by the government, and was, at 
the time of his death, the last of the Revolutionary pensioners 
in Plainfield. At the age of twenty-eight ho .married and re- 
moved to Plainfield, then a district belonging to Cuinmington, 
thus becoming one of its earliest inhabitants, though it was not 
incorporated as a town til! about seventeen years later. As a 
citizen Mr. Hamlin was respected and honored, having received 
many offices of trust by the suffrages of his fellow citizens. 
For nineteen years he was one of the Selectmen of the town, 
and was five years, including ten sessions, a member of the 
General Court, as a representative of Ms town. He was also 
early appointed a Justice of the Peace, but steadily declining 
the legal qualifications, he never exercised the functions of 
that office.

Hollistee. 553 

He is said to have been bom in Glastonbury, England, but 
Mr. Alpiieus Hollistee, of Hollisterville, Pa., says: "The 
Hollistees were from Bristol, England, a good old family as 
early as Henry VIII. There was a John Hollistek, Lord of 
the Manor of Stinchcombe in 1608. Dennis Hollistee was a 
member of Cromwell's Privy Council after the Protectorate 
was established. The name is derived from two words, " Holly " 
and " Ter " or u Terre," which means Holly land or the place of 
Holly trees. There is still a hamlet in England bearing the 
name of " Hollester " or " Hollesterre." From this it would 
appear that the name is truly English and of Somerset county, 
England."

Fidelia Elvira Field, wife of Leverett Joseph Ives, is 
thus spoken ofni the " History of Summit Co., Ohio : " " Prom- 
inent in the early history of Akron, was the wife of Leverett 
Joseph Ives — Fidelia Elvira Ives. She traces her lineage 
through a number of original settlers of New England, among 
whom may be mentioned Samuel Wright, of Springfield, Mass., 
Elder John Strong, of Northampton, Mass., (1) Lieut. John 
Ilollister and (I) Richard Treat, both of Wethersfield, Conn., 
and Zachariah Field, of Northampton, Mass., grandson of John 
Field, of England, the astronomer, who in 1556 wrote the 
first astronomical work in England, ever published, based on ■ 
the tables of the Copernican system. In consequence of which 
he has become known to history as the ' Proto-Copernican, of 
England.' Like her ancestors, Fidelia E. Tves, possesses energy, 
activity, and strength of character. Through' all the years of 
her residence in Akron her gentleness of spirit, and large 
benevolence secured her many friends." 

Leverett Joseph Ives removed about 1833 from Western 
New York to Hamilton, C. W. In the spring of 1837, owing to 
the Canada Rebellion, being unwilling to swear allegiance to 
the British Crown, he removed to Cleveland, O., and in the 



56-J TTOLLTSTER. 

following autumn went to Akron, thirty miles distant, where 
he settled as a druggist, remaining there for twenty-three years. 
In 1860 he removed to Chicago. After remaining in the west 
a number of years, he returned east, and died September 20, 
1876, at his residence in East Orange, N. J., se. 70 years. 
The "History of Summit County" says of him: "He was 
honest and upright in his dealings with men. A good citizen, 
a kindly friend and neighbor, his manners were pleasing and 
full of hospitality." In politics he was a firm Republican, 
sympathizing largely with the cause of freedom to the slaves. 
When " Old John Brown the Martyr " went to Kansas, he pre- 
sented him with the rifle he carried with hiin. 

Leverett Joseph Ives is a descendant of William Ives, one 
of the original free planters of New Haven, and according to 
Savage came over in the ship " Truelove" from London, in 
1635, to Boston, at the age of 28. In 1 639 he is recorded ax 
one of the original signers of the " Fundamental agreement of 
Quinnipiack." lie died at New Haven in 1648, and soon 
after his widow married William Bassett. Joseph Ives, son, 
of Willlidm, married Mary Gale and had a son, Ensign and 
Deacon Samuel, xoho married Ruth Atwater • they had a son 
Capt. Jonathan, who married Thankful Cooper; they had a 
son Jeremiah, who married Hannah Bassett {the great grand- 
daughter of William Bassett, the second husband of the widow 
of William Ives); they had a son Joseph, who married Sai'ah 
Bishop; they had a son Leverett Joseph, xoho married Fidelia 
Elvira Field.
