acquired many items of family genealogy seemingly too 
valuable to be omitted, and they are included although 
not of the Dutch Congregation.

" Nathaniel Kalsey Suydam died at the home of his daughter, 
Mrs. Pitt, on 99th Street, Fort Hamilton. He was born at 
Centerport, L. I., nearly ninety years ago, and his father was 
the late John C. Suydam, a veteran of the war of 181 2. For 
over forty years the deceased lived in Babylon, where he fol- 
lowed his calling as a farmer. Twenty -five years ago, when his 
wife died, he retired from active business, and nine years later 
he went to live with his daughter. Mr. Suydam was a wonder- 
fully active man for his years. Until the day before his death 
he had not experienced a day's sickness in forty years. Yester- 
day morning he had a stroke of paralysis while sitting in his 
chair, and owing to his advanced years could not withstand it. 
He leaves two daughters, three sons, number of grandchildren, 
and four great-grandchildren. To-morrow morning the remains 
will be taken to Babylon, his old home, where the funeral ser- 
vices will take place."

November 2, 185 1, he married Hannah Elizabeth Willis, eldest 
daughter of Jacob B. and Phebe Hewlett of Cedar Swamp, now 
known as Glen Head. Cedar Swamp is the source of the stream 
of water which flows from that locality through a winding valley 
of picturesque beauty to the Glen Cove lakes, and thence into 
the waters of Hempstead Harbor. 

Mr. Titus had been a director in the Glen Cove Mutual Insur- 
ance Company for forty-four years. He had been the president 
of this company for ten years, having been elected to that office 
in 1893. His aid in the establishment of a permanent location 
for the Queens County Agricultural Society was invaluable. His 
tastes were largely toward agricultural pursuits, and he en- 
joyed the summer and the autumn fairs at Mineola with keen 
relish.

" Dear Sir, — While looking over the Fishkill Times yesterday, 
I saw a piece from you in regard to your visit to Fishkill last

Dean sent for me to come in the bank. I met you there. He 
wanted to know what I knew in regard to the Van Nostrand 
family, which was very little, as I was taken by surprise and at 
the same time had considerable on my mind, as I am a poor 
lone widow with a farm. My mind was not on my ancestors. 
He said you had as far as George, who married Hilche Dorland, 
that was my great-great-grandfather. He bought and settled 
on the adjoining farm to mine — then the town of Fishkill, now it 
is the East Fishkill division — but what year I do not know as the 
family now owning it have not the old deed. George had two 
children, Joseph and Helena. Helena married late in life a 
widower, Abram Du Bois of Glenham. Joseph married Elizabeth 
Mead and staid on the father's farm. They had six children, 
George (my grandfather) , Phebe Ann (Mr. Dean's mother), Sarah, 
Helen Maria, James (Mrs. F. R. Benjamin's father), and Cath- 
erine. After their father's death the farm was sold to settle the 
estate. The children remained in the town of Fishkill and East 
Fishkill except two, Catherine, who married Doctor John Clapp 
and moved first to Ohio, then different parts of the west; Helen 
Maria married an Adams and went to Ohio in 1835. 1836, they 
bought a farm of 86 acres for $600 in Berkshire township. I 
have the first letter she wrote home — is the reason I am able to 
give these dates. George (the second as I call him, was my 
grandfather) married Lavina Gildersleeve (who was of Long 
Island family). They had two children, both boys; the first

died in infancy, the second, Joseph Henry (was my father), born 
December ist, 1827, died February 29th, 1884. He married 
Mary Elizabeth Berry, June 9th, 1858. They had two children, 
Mary Lavina (that is myself), born May 28th, 1859, and Francis 
Seymour, born August 9th, 1861. He married Harriet N. Page 
of Syracuse, November 30th, 1897, and on October 5th, 1898, 
they had a son which I was allowed to name. It being the only 
one except my brother of the original Van Nostrand family, I 
thought it should be named after the first Van Nostrand we 
knew of, so I called it George and they added the Page to it. 
My brother lives in Syracuse, 203 Borden Avenue. He is a 
postal clerk running from Syracuse to New York. This is all I 
know in regard to the V. N's. Mr. John P. Lounsbury of Wap- 
pinger Falls has the V. N. bible, which has the dates, no doubt. 
I think I told you of its whereabouts. I have the watch that 
belonged to the first George, it has his initials on the back; also 
a chair made by him, even the seat is leather, his own tanning, 
and the tacks were made by him. I believe he was a black- 
smith. It is as good as when made; the second George put 
rockers on it and it has always been in the living room, as it is 
very comfortable. The first George carried on blacksmithing 
with his farm, his son Joseph was only a farmer, the second 
George and Joseph (my grandfather and father) were both 
wagonmakers and first class. They also had a farm (small one). 
Father learned my brother the trade, which he worked at some 
before going in the mail service. A few years ago my 
brother received a letter from a Van Ostrand in South Haven, 
Michigan. I think his name was Stephen. He had a drug 
store in South Haven, and a son Robert in the post-office at that 
place. He was born near Kingston this State, but moved out 
there. When in this state they spelled their name the same as we 
with two n's. He was quite positive we were of the same family. 
He had his family tree and offered to send it to my brother, but 
we knew nothing before George, who married Hilche Borland; 
I have heard George was of a family of ten children and he came 
from Long Island to D. C. ; so my brother did not send. If you 
are still collecting, this one at South Haven has his family tree, 
and perhaps 3^ou would know whether we were a branch of that

same tree. He wrote my brother it would be no disgrace to be 
a relative, a distant one at any rate. I am very sorry he has 
lost the letter. I do not know as any of this will interest you 
in any way. Should you at any time have a chance I would be 
pleased to know of my V. N. ancestors before George & Hilche, 
and should you have it in print please let me know. I was 
always very proud of my name Van Nostrand, although I gave 
it up before I was eighteen and my husband only lived three 
years. He had consumption, was sick about eighteen months. 
I still live on the farm and own it; the only burying since 1762 
was after my husband's death. I bought his brother out and 
the old Van Nostrand homestead is the adjoining farm. I have 
told all I know and you will really be tired and need rest. After 
I saw your piece yesterday I thought perhaps the family at 
South Haven might be a branch.

433, 441) and settled in the colony of Rensselaerwyck, where 
Jacob Jansz Van Nostrandt, on May 21, 1652, took the oath to 
the Patroon. The immediate locality was in the south eastern 
comer of the now Saratoga County, at a place called "Halve 
Maen," or Half Moon, as his daughter Jannetje on the marriage 
record stated that she was born there. He was by trade a 
brewer. 

Munsell's History of Albany, Deacons account book, Dutch 
Church, Albany. — The book opens with an inventory of the 
investments of the surplus money in the hands of the consistory 
belonging to the poor. 

" Aug. 16, 1651, Jacob Janse Van Norstrant, 72 guilders. 

" Nov. 4, 1654. Jacob Jansen Van Norstrant, 300. guilders. 

" Apl. 29, 1665. Jakop Jans van Norstran, 40. guilders. 

1676, Jacob the Brewer was referred to again. Obtained a 
patent for land in Albany in 1652, as Jacob Janse Van Nos- 
trandt the brewer , had a patent for a lot on the east corner of 
Beaver and South Pearl Street, 9 rods by 8^. This plot seems 
to have been divided into three smaller parcels, Nos. 1.2,3. I^ 
1680, he conveyed No. i to Hendrick Gerritse Vander Meulen. 



602 A DOCUMENTARY HISTORY. 

On the same block on Beaver Street, and at the other corner 
adjoining an alley on lots 5 and 6 was his brewery, which he sold 
in 1654, to Rutger Jacobsen, alias, Rut Van Woert, viz: Jacob 
Janse Van Noorstran's brewery and lot in Beaver Street, except 
the Horse Mill and brewers tools (nearly opposite the present 
Middle Dutch Church). In 1656 he was appointed inspector of 
beer barrels. 

June 7, 1663, occurred the massacre at the Esopus, when 
Jacob the Brewer appears to have been present. In Aug. and 
Nov. of that year he was present at two baptisms in Kingston 
as getuigenis. In 1676 Jacob Jansen signed a petition of the 
Inhabitants of Esopus for a minister. The Dutch Church was 
founded in Beverwyck, or now Albany, about 1640, and was the 
only one north of Esopus having a permanent ministry, until 
after 1700, save that of Schenectady. Unfortunately the rec- 
ords of the Albany church previous to 1684 are missing, or some 
particulars of the baptism of his children might have been found. 
From the records of the Dutch Church of Kingston and New 
York he appears to have had issue:

1687 as being an inhabitant for 29 years, and the record of this 
Pieter is being compiled by Mr. N. J. Ostrander of New Dorp, 
N. Y.

Nostrand. His will dated Sep. 19, 1769; proved Nov. 15, 1770

town, Montgomery Co., N. Y., where they settled on a farm, 
improved it, and planted an orchard. (I can remember eating 
fruit in it in 1834. — H. V. O.). He was a justice of the peace for 
many years. Died on the farm. About this time the name was 
changed from Van Northstrand to Van Nostrand. The Tarry- 
town record is "Noortstrand." The old homestead farm was 
about five miles north of Johnstown, Montgomery Co., now 
Fulton. 

(By H. V. O.). — I learned from one of my uncles that William 
was one of a family of 18 or 19 children, and made spinning- 
wheels. William the son was drafted to help guard the neutral 
lines between the two forces. His squad was surprised by the 
British and taken prisoners, and he was confined in the old City 
Hall in N. Y. for eleven months, where he contracted the small- 
pox, and was taken to the pest hospital. He was exchanged and 
sent home at about the close of the war. 

He had a cousin or near relative who lived near him by the 
name of Aaron, and my uncles often visited him, and always 
called him uncle Aaron. 

(By the compiler). — This Aaron was probably the son of 
Moses, mentioned elsewhere as Aaron of Connecticut.
