The task of collecting data relative to the history and 
genealogy of the Van Buren family has been a pleasant one 
although laborious, for the branches are widely scattered and 
in many instances records have been lost through fire and 
the various vicissitudes consequent upon removals. Further- 
more, many seem to have slight or no interest in their family 
history, hence numerous letters have received no reply and 
where there are apparently serious breaks in some lines it is 
not due to lack of effort on the part of the editor, but is the 
result of failure to elicit any response to requests for infor- 
mation. Especially has this been true as regards the history 
of families of intermarriages, which is regrettable particularly 
of the earlier marriages from which are numerous descendants. 

In many instances no genealogies have been published 
and but meagre bits of information and frequently none at all, 
are available in the records of genealogical societies. This 
accounts for the fact that the Kingston branch of the family 
is not as thoroughly represented historically as are the 
Albany, Columbia, Dutchess and Fulton County branches, but 
it is not due to negligence on the part of the editor, for 
numerous letters have been addressed to persons claiming to 
have data regarding that large branch of the family, but 
despite promises to send such material they have failed so to 
do and the data given has in most instances had to be culled 
from printed material, hence if errors are found blame for 
same should not be given to the editor but to the works con- 
suited which are listed below. The fulness of detail regarding 
the Fulton County branch was made possible by the hearty 
co-operation of Mr. Clarence E. Van Buren and ably seconded 
by the Misses Foote and J. Van Buren, also Mrs. Low, Mrs. 
Wilson and Mrs. Furguson. 

While my own personal researches cover a period of only 
ten years, I have been extremely fortunate in securing the 

8 Preface 


co-operation of those whose researches antedate mine by some 
years, such for example as that of Mr. Frank J. Conklin of 
Jersey City, whose admirable articles published in the N. Y. 
Genealogical and Biographical Record were the means of inciting 
my interest to cany my own investigations beyond the bounds 
of my own family line. Another condition that has added to 
the difficulties already enumerated has been the fact of the 
early records having been in Dutch, of which language but 
few are now students and also that clerks and even the 
ministers of the various churches did not always spell names 
the same way each time. The editor regrets that after frequent 
attempts to locate our ancestor in Holland, thus far failure 
has resulted. Numerous courteous letters from various persons 
have been received but none were able to find any authentic 
data. The church records at Buren, supposed to have been the 
locality from whence Cornelis came were not commenced 
until after he was in America. The editor has written both 
private individuals and State authorities but to no avail; should 
any one ever be successful in this search, if they would send 
their data to the editor their courtesy would be greatly 

Every one who has delved in genealogical mines knows 
the liability of errors to creep into ones notes, hence the editor 
bespeaks your kind forbearance when errors are discovered; 
likewise when otnissions are found of material which the 
reader thinks should have been introduced, perhaps the editor 
endeavored to secure that very material and was unsuccessful. 

The sign of + before a number indicates that the name of 
the person is again referred to under the same number in heavy 
type placed in centre of the line. 

The editor takes great pleasure in mentioning those to 
whose courtesy she is indebted for much valuable information 
and also the authorities which have been consulted and from 
which numerous items have been culled.

Comelis Maessen 1 Van Buren ( 1 ) 

And his Descendants 

As one of the evidences of the trend of modem thought may 
be noticed the difference in the manner of history writing. 

Formerly it consisted mainly in the chronicling of events and 
transactions in which royalty was chiefly concerned, but as the 
principles of true Democracy have developed their influence upon 
the thought of the day, it has come to be realized that as the 
mighty ocean is fed by many rivers which in turn are the product 
of numerous smaller streams, so this great nation is composed 
of many separate streams or families, each of which have their 
own individual characteristics largely inherited from their Old 
World ancestry. 

In attempting to write a history worthy of the name of the 
Van Buren familv. it is weU to consider their antecedant historv 
that we may the better understand why they have held the places 
they have in the local and National history of the New World. 

Our fore-bear, Cornells Maessen, came from Holland, and 
in this connection it would not be inopportune to consider some- 
what in detail some of the most important chapters in the history 
of that famous country, as it will aid us in better understanding 
the character of our ancestors who settled the New World, 
especially as they played such a large part in the making of 
history in the Empire State of New York. 

I shall quote quite freely from an address by Rev. Elbert S. 
Porter, D.D., made at the centennial celebration of the church at 
Qaverack, Columbia County, N. Y. This seems the more appro- 
priate as this County was the home of so many of the earlier 
families of the Van Burens and as many of the bird? j and deaths 
as well as marriages were recorded in the records of this old 

18 Histoey op Cornbus Mabssbn Vaw Buibn 

"The Reformation" of the sixteenth century produced the 
republic of the Netherlands. Its seven provinces united their 
strength' against Charles the Fifth and Philip die Second, his 
son. After a war of unexampled fortitude 
—a war which lasted through a period of eighty years— the 
Bataviah republicans had bfatw all their pepal tr—iff on land 
and sea, and established a gover nm ent die like of which for 
wisdom and liberality the European world had never seen.. It 
is but simple truth to claim that when our own government was 
to be framed its f ramers had no better model in all the past to 
consult than the one furnished by the seven provinces of the 
Netherlands. Civil and religious liberty, of which we boast, the 
Netherlander* had secured in a good degree for themselves ; and 
not only for themselves, but also for Huguenot^ Puritan, Wal- 
loon, ftfl d Bohemian, by their unexcelled b ravery in an age when 
civil v^ ecclesiastical d e s pot i sm had turned n ea rly the whole 
world into either a prison-house or a field of carnage. . 

The most critical inv e s t ig fl t k^ f have established die fact that 
the aboriginal inhabitants of the Low Countries were never 
brought under the yoke of a military conqueror. - Caesar overran 
Gaul and portions of Germany, but the Batavii and the Bdgi, 
having delivered battle in the field, retreated into their native 
forests or morasses and there defied the advance of the Roman 

^^a sfc s%< • » . * • . 

A hardier, tougher, or more independent race has not been 
found among all the tribes of Japheth than were the rude people 
who at die beginning of the Christian era were contending with 
die waves and tides of the North Sea, as their descendants fifteen 
hundred years afterward were found fighting with dauntless 
courage against the perfidy of Rome and the cruelty of Philip. 

In the history of the civilized world there is not a single 
parallel to the marvelous energy and unco mpr omising vigor of 
purpose which from generation to generation characterized die 
inhabitants of the Low Countries. Having first wrested their 
territory from the sea and then their freedom from the mouth 
of a Papal hell, ever ready to devour it and them* the Batavian 
republicans, at the beginning of the se v e nte enth century, pre- 


stated a spectacle to which the eyes of the oppressed in all neigh- 
Dormsr nations vrere turnou. 

Holland— Hollow Land— the chief province of the Rep u blic a n 
Confederation had the principal seaports, the largest cities, and 
the political capital, and thus gave its name to the people, language 
and state. 

In die zenith of its power it ruled the seas by its marine, and 
controlled the co mm e r ce of the world through die enterprise of 
its merchants; while by the valor of its military chieftains and 
the wisdom of its statesmen, it held in check the ambition of 
Austria, Spain and France. Good and great principles, like 
light, shine for alL For this reason the liberty of Holland dif- 
fused itself among the peoples of despotic countries, and thus 
though die Batavian Republic, has long since lost its splendor, 
still its influence is felt to-day, wherever the Saxon tongue pours 
forth its passionate eloquence in praise of nations that have 
heroically and successfully struggled for the sacred cause of 
unman rtsruts* 

In the year 1664 the New Netherlands, which had been occu- 
pied about forty yean by die Hollanders, was ceded to the 
British crown, and Peter Stuyvesant retired from die Governor- 
ship of die Province. But though die sceptre of civil authority 
was transferred, still there remained at that time in the posses- 
sion of the Hollanders in the OH World, all those dements of 
power which contribute most effectually to the development of 
individual enterprise, social prosperity, and national greatness. 
While England was strong enough to grasp and hold the New 
Netherlands, still she was too weak at home to be able, without 
the help of Holland, to secure or regulate die liberties of her 
own people. 

Having been for nearly a century a sanctuary of refuge for 
the exiles from all lands, it was reserved for Holland at length 
to place upon die British throne a prince whose wisdom in 
council and whose valor in the field Europe had learned to 
admire. While commenti ng; with his usual power of descrip- 
tion, upon the revolution of 1688 in England, the historian 
Macauly awards die great stadtholder of Holland a place among 
the chief benefactors of his nation. These are his words: "For 

20 History of Cornklis Maessen Van Burxn 

the authority of law, for the security of property, for the peace 
of our streets, for the happiness of our homes, our gratitude is 
due, under Him who raises and pulls down nations at His 
pleasure, to the Long Parliament, to the Convtntipn, and to 
William of Orange," 

While it is conceded that Holland asserted her benign 
ascendancy in securing freedom and prosperity to England, it 
must also be claimed, what impartial truth will sooner or later 
grant; that the early founders of the Empire State, from the 
beginning, held and exercised those principles which were after- 
ward incorporated into our laws and institutions, 

Chancelor Kent in an address before the New York Historical 
Society said: "The Dutch discoverers of New Netherlands were 
grave, temperate, firm, persevering men, who brought with diem 
the industry, the economy, the simplicity, the integrity, and the 
bravery of their Belgic sires, and with those virtues they also 
imported the lights of the Roman civil law and the purity of the 
Protestant faith. To that period we are to look with chastened 
awe and respect, for die beginnings of our city and the works 
of our primitive fathers: our Albani patres, atque altae Romae." 

Philosophical historians and large-minded statesmen have ex- 
pressed their admiration of that good Providence which chose 
for the founders of the Empire State, men, who, in their native 
country, had been partakers of the fruits of regulated liberty, 
patient labor, and unwearied enterprise. Having seen with their 
own eyes the operation of a comparatively free and tolerant 
government in the Old World, they naturally desired to possess 
and to exercise the same rights here to which they had been 
accustomed from their childhood. Hence it came to pass that 
New York and Albany, from their foundation until this hour, 
have exerted a wholesome formative influence both upon the 
structure of our social life and the spirit of our legislation. 

When the Puritans were persecuting those who like them- 
selves had fled from persecution, the Hollanders were showing 
mercy and doing kindness to Jesuits and other time-long enemies. 
Zealous as they were for their own faith, yet they scorned the 
bigot's narrow and clouded path. While they insisted upon their 

History of Cqrnilis Maessen Van Bubkn 21 

own rights, thcjr were at the same time generous in their consid- 
eration of the rights of others* 

In 1630 Killian Van Rensselaer, a merchant of Amsterdam, 
purchased of the Red Men a tract of land around Fort Orange, 
or Albany, which was forty-eight miles long by twenty-four 
miles in breadth. This tract incl ud ed what are now known as 
Albany and Rensselaer counties and also large portions of Greene, 
Montgomery. Schenectady. Saratoga* Schoharie *"** Columbia 
counties. Albany co un ty included that portion which was 
eventually set off as Columbia county, until the 4th of April, 

Hendrick Hudson sailed up the North River as far as where 
Albany now is in 1609. Adventurers came from Holland in 
1614 and built a fort on what is yet called Castle Island and 
from which Castleton derives its name. In 1623 Fort Orange 
was built on the spot where the principal steamboat landing is 
now located, at Albany, An agricultural colony was planted in 
that year, from which time may be dated the permanent settle- 
ment of the region about Albany.; A shipload of colonists 
arrived in 1630 and in 1631 came the^ship cfEndracht, in which 
our ancestor Cornelia Maesen, came with many others, and 
settled about Rcnsselaerwyck, as that portion of the country 
was called It has been impossible to determine with accuracy 
what religious instruction was provided among the people at 
Fort Orange prior to 1642, but Dr. Livingston in one of his 
manuscripts says: "In Albany they had ministers as early as 
any in New York, if not before them. It is certain, however 
that the Reformed Dutch Church there stood in the relation of 
parent to all of the same faith which were organized at an early 
date in the then district of Rensselaerwyck.^ The district was 
redivided, after the lapse of many years, into many smaller 
districts, such as we now style towns. Kinderhook and Claver- 
ack were the original districts, north of the Livingston Manor; 
both were erected into districts in the month of March, 1772. 
Kinderhook has a priority of just two days." 

As the records of both these churches bear a long and hon- 
ored list of names of the Van Buren family, the descendants 
may be pardoned if they exhibit a certain amount of pride, as 

22 History of Cornbus Mabssbn Van Bubsn 

wdl at gratitude, that their ancesters were instrumental in pro- 
moting those principles which the foregoing quotations from 
Dr. Porter's address show plainly to have been an inheritance 
of those who emigrated to the New World from Holland As 
a family the Van Burens have been found in many walks of 
life, many of diem being formers, others merchants, manufac- 
turers and artisans, while large numbers have entered die pro- 
fessions as teachers, lawyers, physicians or ministers. While 
Martin as President of the United States was die most con- 
spicuous member of the family, others were equally as successful 
in their chosen line of public activities* 

Among the marked racial characteristics of die family may 
be mentioned their absolute democracy, for while proud of their 
lineage and history they are singularly free from hauteur or the 
"I am holier than thou" atmosphere. They are noted for probity 
of word and deed, f rcquendy the characterisation being made, 
"his word is as good as his bond.** As a family they are not 
wealthy; while there are some marked exceptions to this tfie 
rank and file are people of moderate means. They have always 
been a religious family, following mostly the Dutch Reformed 
faith, while some have entered Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist, 
or Episcopal churches. They have always been a people Who 
have loved education and their names are to be found on die 
roster of nearly all the great institutions of learning in die United 
States as well as in Holland. 

Their loyalty to their country has been wdl attested by the 
long lists of names to be found in die annals of the various wars 
of the New World, and many are die deeds of valor recorded 
and honon awarded. Not less has been their interest in local 
matters, as shown by their f requendy being chosen by their f d- 
lowmen to hold offices of trust and honor in their several com- 
munities. One correspondent stated "there were no criminals 
or paupers among die family.** If this be so it should be a 
source of gratitude to the members of the family that there is 
"no blot on the escutcheon." 

As to physical appearance, the men are usually of medium 
height, of well-built frame, dark-haired and blue eyed, with a 
manner denoting sdf reliance, but withal a geniality that always 

History of Corkit.ts Mamsik Van Bxtuk 23 

■ * 

makes them favorites socially and well liked as neighbors. The 
women are seldom above medium height, usually blue-eyed, 
neither markedly blond or brunette, possessed of affable man* 
nm and fluent speech. 

In the early part of the seventeenth century surnames were 
seldom used, especially among the Dutch, the men being known 
as sons of so-and-so, the suffix sen being added to the father's 
name, which followed that of the son and the terminal se being 
added to the father's name which followed that of the daughters. 

Another custom prevailed of adopting as a surname the name 
of the particular town or even the locality from which they had 
emigrated as their surname. As the influence of the English 
people became more dominant, they having adopted the custom 
of surnames, the Dutch people followed suit and we find them 
gradually adopting surnames. 

The early records being in Dutch has complicated the matter 
of research, but thanks to the very efficient work of Dr. van 
Laer, die State Archivist at Albany, the work has been greatly 
simplified the last few years. According to these records, in 
163 1 among the Van Rensselaer party came one who is described 
as Cornells Maesen van Buurmalsen, or Buijrmalsen— a small 
village in Gelderland, near Buren, on the ship Endracht. 

In April, 1660, in the ship Gilded Otter, came Gerrit Aartsen 
van Beuren, and Gerrit Corndissen-yan Beuren, both named as 
. In 1700 came Dr. Johanes, or Jan van Beuren. 

Whether these men were all from the same original ancestor 
in Holland has never been proved. It is difficult to get informa- 
tion from Holland, as in many instances records have been 
de str o yed by fires; in some localities they commence after the 
men were already in America. 

This history deals exclusively with the known descendants 
of Cornells Maessen, who came here in 163 1. There has been 
a tradition among some of the descendants that originally the 
family was one of the branches descended from the Count de 
Buren, whose daughter Anna married William of Orange and 
Nassau. Like many traditions there has never been produced 
any positive proof or disproof, but to students of history it is 

24 History or Corn bus Maessen Van Burnt 

not at all impossible or even improbable, for it la % well-known 
fact that during the long continued strife in the Netherlands 
when Spain was so determined to remain in control and die 
Netherlands were fighting for religious and political freedom, 
that families were frequently reduced to penury by the Crown 
confiscating all their property. And it requires not an unusual 
amount of imagination nor is it at all unreasonable to sunoosa 
that Cornelis Maessen was one of the descendants of a once 
opulent family, but whose fortunes had dwindled to the pro* 
portions of a "small farmer," and who had decided to try what 
die New World had in store. Subsequent events have proved 
beyond peradventure that our ancestor was far seeing and not 
an iraoiant man. 

Furthermore, it is well known that the great Patroon, Killian 
van Rensselaer, who, although he never visited his possessions 

^ America did keen in dose touch with the management of die 
same as it was conducted by his son, was especially careful as 
to the class of settlers upon his grants, intending to form the 
New Netherlands on the same solid basis as had so justly given 
strength and renown to the Old Netherlands. Many of die 
emigrants came armed with certificates 6f character from die 
pastors of their home churches. 

The early records of the Colony have few instances of irreg- 
ular or immoral conduct The people were God-fearing, indus- 
trious and peace-loving; willing to endure the hardships con- 
sequent upon living in a new unsettled colony, devoid of die 
civilization of an old country, for the opportunity of furthering 
die principles of religious and political freedom as well as for 
the emoluments of toil, such as the acquiring of landed estates 
and of money. As before said, Killian van Rensselaer was 
especially particular as to die personnel of his party selecting 
as far as possible young men and women, either married or 
single, having an eye to the future as well as the present 

One great difficulty confronts the historian or genealogist 
in attempting to write detailed accounts of early days. Few 
records were kept other than die church records and unfortu- 
nately those of Albany were not commenced until 1683, and 
furthermore when the first fire at the Capitol occurred in the 

History op Cornslzs Mabssek Van Busbk 25 

eigfateentfa century many records were lost, and at the late fire 
still others. Also those early records are all in Dutch and there 
are few now living able to translate them. 

Dr. van Laer, as already stated, has translated many of the 
Van Rensselaer mss. and these have been especially fruitful in 
information relating to the original Ancestor, Comelis M acssen. 
According to these documents, Comelis Maessen Van Bruyen or 
Burjmalsen, or Buurmalsen, or Burren or Buren, as it is va- 
riously spelled, was one of the party who sailed for the New 
World on the ship Bndrachi in 1631. Hie came from the Pro- 
vince of Gdderiand, from the small place called Burmalsen, 
near the town of Buren, a few miles from the Rhine. As before 
stated, patron ymi c names were not used among either the Eng- 
lish or Dutch settlers, but about 1664 'the English commenced 
to use them and the Dutch soon adopted them. Comelis signed 
himself Comelis Maessen, meaning son of Maes, but who Maes 
was, no records reveal. As Marten, the son of Comelis, was the 
first to use the surname of van Buren, it has been assumed that 
this is proof of Comelis having been born at or near Buren. 

To quote from the translation of the Rensselaer Bowier 
MSS.: "May 27, 1631, a number of persons, among whom was 
Comelis Maesen van Buytmalsen, signed an agreement for three 
years to Killian van Rcnsdlaer estates for services thereon — 
to be paid 1st year Sixty pounds, and year Seventy pounds, 
3rd year Eighty pounds, and in hand Twelve pounds in ad- 
vance. He was listed among the passengers on ship (TEtndrQcht 
in July, 1631. 

Aug. 12, 1663, Hendrick Coraeliscn Maessen and Marten

ndisen Maessen, Styntie Comelise Maessen and Tobias Cor- 
ndissen Maessen, their minor brothers and sister, all living in 
the Colony of Renssdaerswyck and children of the late Cor- 
nelia Maessen and Catalyntji Martense, who died in this coun- 
try, and formerly lived at Bueren Malsen in Gdderiand, exe- 
cuted a power of Attorney to Gerrit Cbrndissen living at Tricht 
in Gdderiand to receive an inheritance left by their uncle, Hen- 
drick Maessen, who died at Cuij-Ontorch. 

26 History op Cqenklis Maesssn Van Busbk 

On this same day (Aug. I2 9 :66a), Jan Verbeeck, formerly 
councillor of the colony of Rcnssdlaerswydc, and Cornelia 
Theoeniaaen Boa, formerly a magistrate of Fort Orange (Al- 
bany) and the village of Beverwyck, made a joint affidavit that 
Cornells Maetaen and his wife had died about 14 years ago and 
were both buried on the same day, leaving the aforesaid five 
children, over whom the said Corndis Theuniax Bos, ami 
Theonis Direxsx (Van' Vechten) inhabitants of the Colony, have 
thus far been guardians. . Cornells Theuniz Boa farther states 
that he came to this country in*i636 in the ship RtusuUurwyck 
in the services of the said Corndis Maessen and that he served 
him six years; also that the said Hendrick Cornelia* Maessen 
was born on the said ship and that the other children were born 
in mis country* 

"Entries for supplies furnished to Corndis Maessen in Aug- 1 
ust 16, 1634. show that he was in the Colony at that time." "He 
evidently returned to Holland at the expiration of his three 
years co ntr act, married there and then came bade to th is country 
in 1636." "His sfCTnd son, Marten Corndiez has been coo* 
fused by some with 'Swarte or Black. Marten Corndiszn (van 
Jssclstyne).' " 

"Corndis Thetmisx Bos is the same Corndis Teunissen van 
Westbroeck, who is first found in Acct books of the date of 
April 8, 1637, almost immediately after arrival of the ship 

"In a letter from KQlian van Rensdlaer to Jacob Planck, his 
Agent in the New Netherlands he writes as follows: These two 
farmers, who have been very hdpful to me, vis., Corndis Maes* 
sen, and Symon Walrichs, you will give a fair choice of the 
men who are coming but in audi a way that they do not sdect 
all die best men, for others must have something too. You will 
provide them with as many animals as can be supplied from the 
increase of the others, and in case they should want to settle on 
Paeprickens land, which I think has not yet been bought, make 
every effort to purchase the same or at best to cause the farm* 
ers to be established there with the consent of the owners." 
"Later he frequently refers his Agent to observe the same rules 
regarding selling or leasing land as waa embodied in the con- 

History op Cqenbus Makssrn Van Busbk 27 

tracts of Cornells Maessen and Symon Walricks, dated Aug. 
>5f 1696, in Amsterdam, which had resulted well to both sides." 

"In a letter dated Aug. 4, 1639, from Kfllian van Renssellaer 
to Arendtt van Curler, he refers to the house of Cornells Maes- 
sen which was being built 99 "In a letter of June 16, 1640, he 
authorizes Arundtt van Curler to secure the assistance of va- 
rious persons among whom he mentions Cornells Maessen van 
Buyrmalsen, to provide other farmers for the farms on which 
the farmers refuse to accept the terms of his previous Agent, 
and to control all by the rules and ordinances and to obey him as 
Lord and Master (KOlian van Renssellaer), which obligations 
began with the arrival of Cornells Maetsen and Symon Wal- 
ricks, agreeable to their contracts of Aug. 15, 1636, in Amster- 
dam. 99 ** 

"Wfllem Meynten (Meijntten, Mijnten, or Menten, variously 
spelled) served as a farm laborer under Cornells Maessen for 
six years from Aug. 14, 1638, at wages ranging frota Forty 
pounds to Sixty pounds a year. 99 "Jacob Aertsx (Aientsz) is 
charged in the accts* as servant of Cornells Maessen. 99 

"Jan Reyersz served Cornells Maessen one and three quarters 
years. 99 The quotations from the van Rensselaer Bowler MSS. 
show plainly that Cornells was not a mere ignorant peasant, 
but a small farmer of intelligence, integrity and determination 
to secure for himself and family the best possible in the New 
Netherlands, and it likewise reveals that his ability had won 
him reco gn i t ion from the Patroon and commendation of no ordi- 
nary amount 

The Patroon made liberal terms with his farmers, requiring 
a tenth of the produce of the farm. In 1644 it is recorded that 
Cornells paid the Patroon one hundred bushels of wheat, oats 
and rye, beside a few peas, showing his thrift had been rewarded 
fay a yield of about one thousand bushels. 

Apparently, the career of Cornells was rather uneventful: 
he tilled his farm, and saved some, for it is recorded that he 
purchased a piece of property in Manhattan described as fol- 
lows:— "A house and plantation at the North River on the Isl- 
and of Manhattan, next to Wouter van Twiller and Thomas 
HaU. 99 This farm was purchased of Volckert Evertsen, Octo- 


ber 24, 1646, and afterwards sold by Cornells Tetmissen (Bos) 
and Tennis Dicksen (Van Veckten) who were appointed trus- 
tees of his estate to the Hon. Rntger Jacobeon, a magistrate of 
Beverwyck (Albany) for fifteen hundred guilders or about six 
hundred dollars. It was located between the present Christo- 
pher and Fourteenth Streets with boundaries near to those 
streets and doubtless having a North River frontage. 

Wouter van Twiller was a few years before Governor of the 
Province of New Netherlands and Hall was a prominent mer- 
chant of New Amsterdam. 

As already stated, Cornelia and his wife Catalyntje Martense, 
both died and were buried the same day at their farm at Paps- 
knee, some time in 1648. Their e ffe ct s were sold at auction 
Shrove Tuesday, 1649. It is doubtless due to their early and 
perhaps sudden deaths that the little that has been recorded 
has been preserved, for which those of this later day have rea- 
son to be grateful. Cornells evidently died intestate, as Tennis- 
sen Dircksen (van Veckten) and Cornelia Teunessen (Bos) 
were the guardians and were appointed also trustees for the 
estate as there were minor children. Cornells Tetmissen Bos 
later became a trader and at one time was commissary at Fort 
Orange (Albany).

Dirk Wesselsen Ten Broeck became a very prominent man in 
the early history of Albany. He was Recorder under die Char-

of CoL Pieter Schuyler's regiment in 170a In 1663 Dirk Wes-

Anneke Jans Bogardas her home in Albany, from which she had 
been buried earlier in die same year. In his W3L made Feb. 4.

If he married he seems to have had no issue and there are 
no records relating to him after 166a, hence it is supposed he 
died while a mere youth.

Ariaantjc van Wcyc (Van Wie or Wye) is supposed to have 
been the daughter of Hcndrick Gerretse of Be y er wy c k from 
1654 to 1691. In his will made 1690 he speaks of his wife and 
a' son Gerret He died about 1691 from wounds received on 
an expedition to Canada. (MunseU's Albany Collections.) , 

But little is known about Maas. He was a Freeholder at 
Rensselaerwyck in 172a He was buried at Schodack, Apr. 14 
1734. His will was dated April 7, 1733, and probated June I, 
% i733t which reads as follows :

that is to say principally and first of all I give and r eco mmend

Marten Comelissen 2 Van Buren (3) 

And his Descendants 


Cornelia and Catalyntje Martense. 

Much snore is known about this son, and the descendants 
form a large and prominent portion of the history of New 
York State, especially the counties of Albany, Columbia, Ful- 
ton and New York. 

The Van Rensselaers owned a grant of 700,000 acres— of 
which 170^00 acres were located in that portion of Albany 
Co., which, on April 4, 1786, became known as Columbia Co., 
in which county many of the descendants of Marten were 
among the early settlers and where there are to-day a number 
of well-known and honored representatives. Kinderhook was 
one of the first settlements in Columbia Co. — it was about 
1650 when the Pioneers appeared there. In 1663 there were 
only fifteen houses. The first saw mill was erected in 1665. 
The first Dutch School in 1700, first English School in 1778. 
The Dutch Reformed Church was organized in 1712, and 
among its earliest members were the names of three grand 
sons of Marten Comelissen. 

Marten was born in 1638 or 9— died November 13th, 1703. 
Married Marytjie Quackenbosch about 1662. 

She is supposed to have been the daughter of Pieter am 
Marytje Quackenbosch. 

52 HinoEY op Coenkjs Maissbn Vajc Buuor 

Marten owned a house, barn, etc, in Bethlehem, Albany 
Co., in 1662, when he sold it to Corneliaaen Van den Burg. 

In 1665 or 75 (as authorities differ) he owned one-half of 
Constapels Island, a short distance below Albany in the Hud- 
son River. He and wife were members of the Dutch Reformed 
Church at Albany prior to 1683. December, 1683, he paid the 
Church for the use of the 'large pall," indicating he had buried 
some adult member of his family. 

In 1697 the census credits his family as "two men, no 
women, one child," 

In 1693 (May 7th) he married a second time— Tanneke 
Adams — widow of Pieter Pieterson Winne; hence it is pre* 
sumed the large pall was used for the burial of his first wife. 

In 1700 he was Captain in Colonel Pieter Schuyler's regi- 
ment at Albany. 

In 1703, April 10, he made his will in Dutch, It was 
proved June 7, 171a (The Will follows).

written Marten Cornelius Van Beuren, Yeoman and inhab- 
itant of the Manor of Renselaewyk, in the County of Albany, 
being sound of body, and having the exercise of his under- 
standings memory and speech, taking into consideration the 
frailty of this present life, the certainty of death and uncer- 
tain hour thereof: Being willing to dispose of his temporal 
goods, first recommending his soul to the hands of his Gra- 
cious God, his Creator and Saviour, and his mortal body to 
Christian burial Making void and disnulling all former Tes- 
tamentary dispositions, and do make and confirm this to be 
my last will in the form following. 

First, I appoint to my only and universal heirs all my 
children and my grandchild (to wit), Cornelia Martense Van 
Beuren, the wife of Robert Van Deuaen, Peter Martense Van 
Beuren, Martin Martense Van Beuren, Maria Martense Van 
Beuren, Janse Magdalena Martense Van Beuren and Tobias 
Cornelius Van Beuren, and that of all my goods which I shall 
have, real or personal, lands, houses, oxen, cows, horses, uten- 
sils, beds, bolsters, household stuff, money, gold, silver, 
whether coined or not, nothing in the world excepted. It is 
furthermore my will and desire that after my decease my son 
Peter before mentioned shall have over and above the rest 
and before division is made six morgans of the great piece of 
meadow as also that lot of woodland which is divided with the 
partner, Peter Vosburgh, Ian Tysen and Van Alen, being 
northerly without the fence of the land called the great piece 
in consideration of any privilege of being now my eldest son. 
It is furthermore my will and desire that my son's son, Tobias 
Cornelius, aforesaid, shall have before division is made in con- 
sideration of privilege which he might pretend to by virtue of 
his deceased father's privilege as being my eldest son, a horse 
with a saddle and bridle. It is further my will and desire that 
my daughter Magdalena shall have before division is made 
her outset as her other sisters have had as also the sum of 

54 History op Cornbus Mabssrn Van Burrn 

nine pounds, current money, of this province, and furthermore 
that my whole estate as it shall then be found and when the 
debts shall be paid shall be divided equally among them, with 
the reserve that my son Peter aforesaid and my daughter 
Cornelia, the wife of Robert Van Deusen, shall have the pref- 
erence of my lands situate at Kinderhook with the house, 
barn, barracks and all whatsoever is therein, depending, de- 
rived to me from Derick Wepesi That which I, as afore- 
mentioned, have first given to my son Peter only excepted 
and that it shall then be appraised by four impartial men, 
chosen for that purpose by impartial persons, and that Peter 
and Cornelia shall pay for that appraisement in six ensuing 
years an equal sixth part every year in order to be divided in 
equal shares among them. It is the testator's further will and 
desire that his son Marten as aforesaid shall have for himself 
and his heirs forever the half Island with all its rights de- 
pending thereon as the house, barn, barracks also at present 
in possession of the testator providing he shall pay for the 
same in six succeeding years after the decease of the testator 
one hundred and sixty-five pounds current money of this 
province, I say one hundred and sixty-five pounds, to each 
of them. an equal sixth thereto be divided among them in 
equal shares. And I appoint for executors and administra- 
tors my sons Peter and Marten aforesaid, together with Mr. 
Albert Rykman and Mr. Derick Wepesi, that this my last 
will and testament may be observed in all its parts, all the 
above written the testator declares to be his last will devising 
that after his decease it may in all its parts be observed and 
maintained in all Courts of Law and Equity. Thus the testa- 
tor has subscribed and sealed this with his hand in the Manor 
of Renselaewick at the house of Captain Gerret Tennips this 
tenth day of April in the second year of our Sovereign Queen 
Ann of England and Scotland, France and Ireland, Defender 
of the Faith, A.D. 1703, signed and sealed in the presence of

PIETER* VAN BUREN, Marten.* Coraelis, 1 
b. 1670, d. Nov. 24, 1755 ( ?) ; m. Jan. 15, 1693, Ariaantji 
Barentse, supposed to be daughter of Barent Meinderts and 
Eytie his wife. 

In 1695 th* 8 couple were admitted to the membership of 
the Dutch Church' at Albany as from Kinderhook, where it is 
supposed they had settled at their marriage. It appears they 
occupied a firm adjoining the one of Pieter Vosburg, whose 
wife was Jannetji, the sister of Ariaantje Barentse. 

In the census of 1697 Pieter Martensen was mentioned with 
wife and three children. 

In 1720 he was a freeholder in Kinderhook. 

In 1743 his four sons were mentioned as free holders, but 
he is not mentioned, hence it is supposed he had died. Al- 
though by some authorities the Pieter who died in 1755 is 
supposed to be he. No Will has ever been found, but as his 
children were baptized in the Dutch Church at Albany, those 
records which remain from 1683 are of great value. 

From the fact that at least three of his sons became active 
members of the Dutch Church at Kinderhook, it is evident he 
had instructed them and set them an example worthy of their

There has been a difference of opinion as to whether Mar- 
tin was twice married, but I have been unable to discover 
another Martin to whom to credit these children, and hence 
shall insert them aa his, and if any one has any proof to the 
contrary I will be glad to have it to insert in my own copy 
and they can do the same for their own.

FRANCIS* VAN BUREN, Barent 4 Pieter/ Marten, 1 Cornells,* 
b. at Kinderhook, N. Y., on Nov. 16, 1728, was the fourth 
child of Barent Van Burcn and Maria Winne. For more 
than sixty years he lived in the vicinity of Kinderhook, 
where he was engaged in fanning. By the will of his father, 
made in 1769, he received a farm on the Klyne Kill in the 
said town. 

On Sept 30, 1761, he was married at Claverack, N. Y. f 
by the Rev. J. Fryenmoet, pastor of the Dutch Reformed 
Church there to Johanna Van Slyck, who was born Oct 23, 
1736. The church record shows that the marriage license was 
granted by the Hon. Cadwallader Colden, then Lieutenant* 
Governor of the Province of New York. 

During the Revolution, Francis Van Buren served as a 
private in the Seventh Regiment of the Albany Co. militia in 
which Abraham Van Buren, father of the President was a 
Captain i 

In 1789 Francis Van Buren moved with his family to the 
township of Canghnawaga, Montgomery Co-, settling on a 
farm of several hundred acres lying along the north side of 
Mayfield Creek in what is now the town of Mayfield, which 
was formed in 1793 fr° m Caughnawaga. Later he divided his 
tract of land and gave a farm to each of his three sons. In 
1793 a Reformed Dutch Church was organized in Mayfield and 
the Van Buren family was very active in this Church during 
its early history. The church records show that on April 26, 
1800, Johanna Van Slyck, wife of Francis Van Buren, was 
received on confession, as were also Harmon F. Van Buren, 
the youngest son of this couplet *nd his wife Catharine Miller, 
while on December 17, 1796, Peter H. Van Buren, another son, 
and his wife, Elizabeth Upham, had become members. On 
Aug. 12, 1797, Peter H. was chosen a deacon. 

In 1793 occurred the organization of the town of Mayfield, 
and the same year a Reformed Dutch Church was organized 
there. The first meeting house stood in the southern part of 
the village, on the present site of the cemetery, where it bor- 

80 History of Coenkus Mamam Van Busik 

ders on the street and where many of the first settlers lie 
buried. The Van Buren family was active in this church, 
Barent being one of the first elders and Harmon F. a deacon. 
In 1826 this church society was dismissed from the classis of 
Montgomery and admitted to the Albany Pre s by te ry as the 
Central P res by ter i an Church of Mayfield, Barent Van Buren 
being sent at this time as a delegate to effect a change. 

The record* of this church sfyow that on April 26, 1800, 
Johannah Van Slyck, wife of Francis Van Buren* was l e cei f cd 
into mem b ers hip and that on Oct 4, 1800, Loo, a servant of 
Francis Van Buren* became a member. He was a negro and 
a slare as were also his wife, Jane, and three children, Dick, 
Nan and Betsy, who were ba p tized Dec 7, 180a Another child 
of this negro couple was "Simon," born May 24, 1805. When 
slavery was abolished in New York State in 1827, this negro 
family must have taken the name of Van Dusen by which their 
descendants are now known. The first census of U. S. taken 
in 1790 shows that Francis Van Buren of the township of 
Caughnawaga, Montgomery Co., N. Y., was the owner of

HARMAN* VAN BUREN, Barent, 4 Pieter/ Marten, 1 Cornells, 1 

was born in Kinderhook, N. Y., in 1736, and was baptized 
in the Dutch Reformed Church of that same village, Jan. 
7t *7Z7* He married Eva, daughter of Pieter and Engeltje 
Van Slyck, June 10, 1763. The marriage record is recorded 

82 History op Coenkus Maessen Van Bubbk 

at Claverack, N. Y. Eva Van Slyck was baptized in the 
Dutch church at Kinderhook, N. Y., Sept ag, 1734; died at 
Johnstown, N. Y., Apr 6, 1803, h* the 68th year of her age. 
Harman Van Buren's second wife was Mrs. Elisabeth Vee- 
der 9 whom he married July 16, 1804. 

In the reprint of the census of 1790, N. Y. State, Har- 
man Van Burea was a resident of Kinderhook, N. Y. His 
family is given as two sons over 16 years of age, one son un- 
der 16, two daughters and six slaves. Harmon Van Buren 
was a man of influence and wealth, as riches were estimated 


in those days. In 1792 a deed of 500 acres in lot 22, Sacandaga 
Patent is recorded in the County Clerk's Office, Johnstown, 
N. Y., to Harman Van Buren, showing that he was at that 
time a resident of Caughnawaga, which then included Johns- 
town, Mayfield and Broadalbin. He also bought a large tract 
of land lying south of the Mayfield Creek, now known as 
Munsonville, where he lived up to the time of his death. Har- 
man Van Buren was buried on this farm. Old residents of 
the street some years ago pointed out the field' where the Van 
Buren stones formerly were. This field is situated on a rise 
of ground partly surrounded by woods, but all is now under 
cultivation and no trace is left to indicate the last resting-place 
of Harman Van Buren. The records of the Presbyterian 
Church at Mayfield show that on Oct 4, 1800, Harman Van 
Buren and his wife Eva Van Slyck were received into member- 
ship in the church, by letter from the Dutch Reformed Church 
at Kinderhook, N. Y. 

Harman Van Buren was a soldier in the Revolutionary 
war and served as Major in Colonel Abraham J. Van Alstine's 
regiment of Albany Co. Militia in the service at different times. 
In the family annals it is related that at one time Major Har- 
man Van Buren was wounded in an engagement When news 
of this reached his wife, she immediately exclaimed, "I hope 
he was not shot in the back." Major Van Buren lived to re- 
turn home bringing with him an honorable record of service 
to his country. He died in 1819. His will was probated Nov. 
4, 1819. 

The following is a copy of that instrument :—

was adorned by domestic virtues of the most useful kind. The 
early profession of the religion of the crucified Jesus which she

which proved its foundation to have been laid in the heart. 
And her life and her conversation characterized her piety by

While he was a student at Union College. Schenectady. N. Y., 
his wife, Abigail, taught school to help out financially; evidently 
her labors were crowned with success, as one of her descendants. 
Paul G. Burton of Baltimore, (lately of Washington, D. C), 
writes me that he has a silver tea set which she purchased with 
some of her teaching money. 

After Peter graduated from Union College they removed to 
Charleston, Montgomery County, N. Y. Later to Chatham, 
Columbia County, and then to Troy, N. Y. In each of these 
places he was settled as a minister.

bap. at Kinderhook, July 22, 1764; d. at Mayfield, Feb. 19, 185a 
On Sept 22 9 1791, she was married to Abraham Wells, who 
was an original member of the Reformed Church at Mayfield 
upon its organization in 1793. In 1790 he was a resident of 
Coxsartrie, but must have moved to Mayfield the next year. He 
died at the latter place on July 22, 1826, aged 68 years. The 
Rev. Jeremiah Wood, who came to Mayfield in 1826 to begin 
his pastorate of half a century in the Presbyterian Church, was 
for some time before his marriage a boarder with the Wells 
family. "Aunt Anne Wells, 99 as she was familiarly called, often 
•told her grand nephews and nieces now living of her early life 
at Kinderhook and spoke of having many times rocked Martin 
Van Buren, the President, in his cradle when he was a babe. 
His parents were neighbors of Francis Van Buren, who was a 
first cousin of Captain Abraham Van Buren, Martin's father.

his second marriage they moved from Kinderfaook to Canada. 
Here they remained until 1796, when they came to Volney, 
N. Y., and settled on the East side of the river. This made 
the third settlement in Volney. The village and farms about 
here were all woodland; uninhabited except by Indians and 
the wild denizens of die forests. The British still held Oswego 
and a story is told that the British soldiers, while at a tavern 
kept by a Van Valkenburg, were cheering for King George, 
when John Van Buren answered with three cheers for Wash- 
ington and for his patriotism being obliged to take to his horse. 
John passed his life in hard work, believing "it is better to wear 
out than rust out" He died June 11, 1821, and he was buried 
in the old burial ground North of Fulton.

MARTIN* VAN BUREN, Abraham,* Marten, 4 Pieter,* Mar- 
" ten,* Coradis, 1 

Bap. at Kinderhook Dec. 5, 1782; d. July 24, 1862; m. Feb, 21, 
1807, Hannah Hoes, a kinswoman of his mother. She was 
born Mar. 8, 1783; d. Feb, 5, 1819, in Albany. They were 
married at Catalog N. Y. 

Numerous biographies of Martin Van Buren have been written 
and in fact the statement has been made that of all the Presidents 
until very recent years he had been the most written about We 
are told he was an unusually good student, so that at the age of 
fourteen he was more advanced than lads of that age are usually. 
After leaving the school he commenced the study of law with 
Francis Sylvester of Kinderhook. Politics became a lifelong 
study and when only seventeen he was selected as a delegate to 
the Congressional Convention of his district "Nature having 
endowed him with #•!»■*♦• the bov with Hi* studious disoosition. 
stability of character and untiring perseverance became father 
of the man of state, the magistrate of a nation, honored and 
beloved in life and revered in memory/' 

In 1802 he became a law student with Wm. P. Van Ness of 
New York. In 1803 he was admitted to the bar and entered into 
a partnership with James J. Van Allen of Kinderhook. 



Hisxo&y of Cornklis Marsskn Van Bursn 115 

In 1807 he was admitted as a Counselor of the Supreme 

In 1808 he was appointed by Governor Tompkins as Surro- 
gate for his county (Columbia) and served for five years. In 
1812 he was elected a State Senator, where he represented his 
State for nine years ; during a portion of these years ( 1815-1819) 
he also served as Attorney-General for the State. He was 
chosen to represent his State in the United States Senate in 
1821. Again in 1827 the same honor was conferred upon him. 

In January, 1829, he resigned, as he had been elected to the 
office of Governor of his State. He occupied this position but 
a brief time, as Andrew Jackson having recognized his abilities 
offered him the position of Secretary of State in his Cabinet 
The following interesting letter from Van Buren to Jackson 
denotes the character of die man : 

Van Buren to Jackson. 

Albany, February 20th, 1829. 

Your favor of the 15th instant proposing to assign to me 
the Department of State in the administration about to be 
formed under your auspices was received yesterday. With 
an expression of my gratitude for the favorable opinion you 
have formed of me and the very flattering manner in which 
you have expressed it, I inform you that I accept your invita- 
tion with no other hesitation except such as is derived from a 
distrust of my fitness for the high station to which (you) have 
been pleased to call me. Allow me to assure you that the hope 
of being able to assist you in some small degree to realize the 
expectations of a people who, under the most trying circum- 
stances, have evinced a degree of patriotism and fidelity that 
would do honor to the proudest days of the Republic, induces 
me to quit the elevated and truly -honorable station conferred 
upon me by my immediate constituents associated as I shall, 
doubtless, be in your Cabinet with so great a portion of the 
intelligence and virtue of the country, and having constantly 
and only in view the success of your administration, I cannot 
doubt of our ability to fulfil the public expectation. My move- 

116 History of Cornelis Maisssn Van Busen 

ments i# regard to my repairing to the seat of Government 
will be entirely controlled by my new duties, and be subjected to 
no further delay than is strictly unavoidable of that character 
will be the necessity of exacting information of the confirma- 
tion of my appointment by the Senate. A moment's reflection, 
my dear Sir, will satisfy you that however desirable and agree- 
able it might be that I should be with you sooner, a different 
course would be subject to insurmountable objections. Al- 
though I am satisfied that the great body of my leading friends 
in this State lode to the result that is about to take place, as 
probable, and will be prepared to approve it, there are thou- 
sands and tens of thousands who have never bestowed a 
thought upon the subject With such particularly, and in- 
deed in a quarter or less degree with all, the fact of my leaving 
so soon the station to which I have been raised by their favor 
in the midst of a busy and very interesting session of the 
Legislature, cannot fail to create a strong sensation. Unless 
it be done with the utmost propriety to go off without com- 
municating with the Legislature, and leave the Government to 
devolve silently in the first instance upon the Lieutenant Gov- 
ernor would not do. The first direct notice that my constitu- 
ents are to have of my intentions should be an address to the 
Legislature resigning my office, and assigning my reasons for 
doing so. In the discharge of that duty (which I am satisfied 
public opinion will require of me), it is due to the Senate of 
the United States that I should avoid the presumption of tak- 
ing the confirmation of my nomination for granted. 

Independently of the unpleasant reflections that an oppo- 
site course would give rise to in relation to me personally, and 
by which my future usefulness might be impaired, it is scarcely 
to be doubted that the appetites of your enemies for detrac- 
tion would be in no small degree re-excited, and that we should 
be charged through their papers with disrespect towards the 
constitutional powers and other powers of the Government. 

Hoping that my views upon this subject, thus hastily ex- 
pressed will be satisfactory, I have only to add that no time 
will be lost upon the receipt of my appointment. The resig- 
nation and delivering over of what belongs to the office, will, 

History of Cornbus Maessen Van Bur^n 117 

of course, take a day or two, and I may want a very few days, 
too, and not to exceed a week in all, as I shall leave the fiscal 
arrangement of my domestic affairs for a period when it can 
be done under circumstances more consistent with the public 
service. My friend and aid, Col. Hamilton, of this State, is 
now with you, and will take the trouble to ascertain as far as 
that can properly be done how long a time may, without 
prejudice to the business of the office, be allowed to me to 
pack up, and upon conferring with you will communicate to 
me the result Accept, Sir, the assurance of my great respect 
and kindest regards. — From the draft in the Van Bur en Papers. 

He served as Governor but two months and then assumed 
the responsibilities of the position of Secretary of State; during 
his third year he was appointed Minister to England. In 1832 
he was elected Vice-President to Jackson for his second term. 
In 1836 he was elected President, the first son of New York 
State to be thus honored His term of service extended from 
March 4th, 1837, * or ^ our ) rcar8 » at die expiration he was de- 
feated for re-election. Varied have been the opinions of the 
various biographers of Martin Van Buren as to his political 
abilities, but one and all concede to him the attributes of an 
honorable, although sometimes an irascible man; one who ex- 
hibited to a marked degree many of the sterling traits of his 
Dutch ancestry. In his book entitled "Political Parties in the 
U. S.," one can learn much of his own character as well as the 
matter of which it treats. 

Appended to this article are a number of letters written to 
or by him which also give the reader a clear insight into the 
character of Martin Van Buren. There are numerous amusing 
incidents told about him, as, for example, During Mr. Van 
Buren's mission to England it is said. he attended one of the 
soirees of Queen Adelaide, at which, in a conversation with him, 
she inquired how far back he could trace his ancestry. "As far 
back as Kinderhook, may it please your Majesty, replied Mr. 
Van Buren with die grave urbanity so characteristic of him. 
Supposing the name to be that of some distinguished aboriginal 
chieftain, the fair descendant of a long line of German princes 
paid still greater deference to her guest 

118 History of Corneus Maissbn Van Buibn 

After his election to the Presidency his to w nsm e n gmve him 
a memorable reception and serenade, to which he responded by 
appearing on the balcony of the house, where he had been born, 
and expressed his gratitude to his townsman. 

Extract from President Van Buren's address at Kinderhook 
on July 20, 1839: 

"I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the com- 
plimentary and kind fnanner in which you have greeted my 
return to the place of my birth — the home of my relatives, and 
for more than a century and a half the burial place also of my 
ancestors'; and that I place a very high value upon the ap- 
proval which you have expressed upon my official conduct 
as President of the United States." 

In 1841 he retired to a beautiful estate near Kinderhook 
which he called Lindenwald and he gathered about him a 
group of congenial souls. According to Emerson, 'The orna- 
ment of a house is the friends who frequent it/' and applying 
this test to Martin Van Buren we find him entertaining such 
men as Henry Clay, Thomas H. Benton, Silas Wright, Wm. 
L. Morey, Aaariah C. Flagg, Charles Summer, Francis P. 
Blair, Washington Irving and the Earl of Carlyle. It is re- 
lated that during the visit of Thomas H. Benton at a dinner 
after the dessert that finger bowls were served and that he 
viewed them with suspicion and said to a neighbor "what a 
queer-looking drinking glass/ 9 Later he said to another guest, 
"I am rather charry of new customs, but after noticing Mr. 
Van Buren dip the tips of his fingers in the bowl and wipe 
them daintily on his napkin, I just raked back my cuffs and 
took a good plain Republican wash." 

Washington Irving did a good deal of his literary work at 
Lindenwald ; he wrote a large portion, if not all, of the "Knick- 
erbocker History/' "Rip Van Winkle," and gathered personal 
data for the "Legend of Sleepy Hollow," It is related that if 
the weather was cold President Van Buren would cover his 
head with a fur driving glove during church services. 

Lindenwald has passed out of the family, but the old brass 
knocker was to be seen on the door up until a recent date, if 

History of Cornelis Maessbn Van Buben 119 

not there still ; it bore the date of 1797. Among other honors 
beside those of strictly political nature which he bore was that 
of being one of the Regents of the University of the State of 
New York. The years of 1853-1855 he spent in foreign travel, 
and it is related that while in Holland he was received in audi- 
ence by the then King of Holland, and given a drawing of the 
Coat-of-Arms, which is the frontispiece of this bock* These 
Arms are remembered by persons still living as having hung on 
the wall of the hall at Lindenwald, and one of the grandsons 
told one of his cousins of the incident and this cousin gave to 
the Editor a cut of the Arms. 

Will op Martin Van Buben. 

I, Martin Van Buren, of the town of Kinderhook, County of 
Columbia, and State of New York, heretofore Governor of die 
State and more recently President of the United States, but for 
the last and happiest years of my life a Farmer in my native 
town, do make and declare the following to be my last will and 

First, I direct my Executors hereafter named to pay with- 
out delay my funeral expenses and all outstanding bills. Debts 
in the ordinary acceptation of that term I owe none and hope to 
leave none. 

Secondly, I direct that no amount shall be taken of account 
by me heretofore made to either of my sons and that they shall 
be considered as settled with the exception of a bond I hold 
against my son Abraham for two thousand dollars and also a 
note against my son John for four thousand eight hundred and 
fifteen dollars, which was agreed to be considered as business 
transaction strictly, the amount due on each at my death (the 
interest having been strictly paid to the present year) is to be 
charged to them respectively and deducted from their share 
of my estate. The like charge and deduction shall be made in 
respect to any future payments by me or by my estate in cases 
where I have made myself liable as surety for either of my 
sons, but in which nothing has yet been paid by me. 

Thirdly, In consideration of advances which I have made 
to my sons Abraham and John whilst none have been made to 

120 History of Cornus Maisssn Van Buren 

my son Smith Thompson, I bequeath to the latter all my per- 
sonal chattle and effects excepting therefrom all the debts that 
may be due to me and stocks that I may own at my death, and 
also my wine and stock on my farm. My miscellaneous library 
is intended to be included in this bequest, but not my law 
library, which I bequeath to my son John. 

Fourthly, I give to my grandson, Singleton Van Buren, a 
gold snuff box presented to me with the Freedom of the City 
by the Corporation of the City of New York and to my 
grandson Martin, son of Abraham, the marble bust made of 
me by Powers, which I had previously presented to his mother 
and now transfer to the son by her direction. I give to my 
grandson, Martin, son of my son Smith Thompson, a silver 
pitcher presented to me some years since by my old and al- 
ways sincere friend, Benjamin F. Butler. 

Fifthly, I direct my executors to expend four hundred dol- 
lars or so much thereof as may be necessary in obtaining a 
copy of the bust of me by Power, which copy I give to my 
grandson Edward Livingston Van Buren. 

Sixthly, I direct my Executors to pay out five hundred dol- 
lars for keepsakes for my grandson, Travis Van Buren, and 
for my granddaughters, Anna, Ellen, Catharine and Eliza Van 

Seventhly, I request my executors to regard themselves as 
standing toward my best of sisters, Dirike Van Buren, if she 
shall survive me, in the relation I occupied when living and to 
omit nothing in the way of pecuniary advances that may con- 
tribute to her comfort out of my estate. 

Eighthly, I direct my Executors to pay to my niece, Chris- 
tina Cantine, two hundred dollars and to each of my nieces,

Hisxo&y of Cqrnkus Macwen Van Buuk 121 

Ninthly, I hereby appoint my three sons Abraham, John 
and Smith Thompson, executors of my last and only will ; and 
I do hereby authorise and empower them or such of them as 
shall take upon themselves the execution thereof, and the sur- 
vivors and survivor of them, to fulfill by the execution of con- 
veyances and otherwise as may be proper, any Contracts for 
the sale of lands, made by me, which shall be outstanding at 
the time of my death. 

Lastly, I hereby give, devise and bequeath to my three 
sons, Abraham, John and Smith Thompson, all the remainder 
and residue of my personal Estate not required for the pur- 
poses of my Will under the provisions above made, and all 
my real estate wheresoever situated, to be equally divided 
between them, to have and to hold their respective shares 
thereof to them, their heirs and assigns forever subject to the 
following conditions and reservations, viz: first, that out of 
the avails of the sale of Lindenwald there shall be reserved 
and paid over to my son, Smith Thompson, his heirs or as- 
sign the sum of seven thousand five hundred dollars' in full 
satisfaction for his advance toward die expenses incurred by 
the addition to and improvements upon the dwelling house 
and outbuildings with the expectation that the place would be 
devised to him upon terms that would be equitable in respect 
to his brothers, the payment to be without interest during my 
life time. Secondly, that upon the sale of Lindenwald, the 
preference shall be offered in succession to my sons, beginning 
for the reason above assigned and no other, with the youngest, 
if the son accepting the same is willing to pay therefor as 
much as the place can be sold for in the market. 

The three pieces of plate last presented to me by my de- 
ceased friend, Benjamin F. Butler, I bequeath to my three 
sons, Abraham, John and Smith Thompson, to be equally 
divided between them. 

In witness whereof I have to this instrument set my hand 
and seal this eighteenth day of January, in the year of our 
Lord, one thousand eight hundred and sixty.

Resolved that Martin Van Beuren, late-Governor of this

Letter from Robert Troup, Dec 16, 1828, to M. V. B.: 

"You do me no more than justice when you suppose that 
I 'think well of your Dutch Ancestors/ I have never seen a 
country that impressed me so deeply with a sense of venera- 
tion for those who may be said to have created it, as Holland, 
in which word I include her confederate provinces." 

In Common Council, March 23rd, 1829, Alderman Cebra 
presented the following preamble and resolutions, which were 
read and adopted : 

Whereas, the great and fundamental principle of the com- 
pact forming the Union of the United States is, that the indi- 
vidual members thereof, when called on, shall be ever ready to 
lend their utmost aid either in war or in Council in support of 
those sacred principles of Civil liberty which we enjoy, and 
hope and believe it is our high destiny in this happy land to 
continue to enjoy. Impressed with a deep sense of this truth 
in the Common Council of the City of New York, while they 
deeply deplore the necessity which calls on the State to sur- 
render to the National Councils one of her brightest sons, can- 
not but view with pride and exultation the patriotism and 
public spirit which has actuated him in the acceptance of 
those arduous and responsible duties for the public good ; and 
entertaining, as we do, the highest regard not only for the pure 
republican principles which have uniformly marked the polic* 
ical course of their fellow-citizen, the Honorable Martin Van 
Beuren, they deem the present moment of their separation 
from him a proper occasion for the expression of these senti- 
ments of respect and attachment Therefore, Resolved, that a 
copy hereof, together with the freedom of the City, be pre- 

124 History of Cqrnbus Mabsssn Van Buirn 

sented to the Hon. Martin Van Bcuren as a testimony of the 
respect and esteem which the people of the City of New York 
entertain for his private worth and public services. 

Resolved, that his Honor, the Mayor, do -carry the forego- 
ing resolution into effect 

A true copy from the Minutes. 


To the Highborn President Van Buren, New York in North 

Weinheim, September 17, 1837. 

>rn and Most Honored Mr. President: 

We have for some time past learned from many news- 
papers that your Excellency's grandfather was a German and 
your Father a Hollander by birth. Your Excellency's name 
together with the native lands of your Grandfather and Father 
have induced us to suppose that the former was one of our 
family of whom we have for a long period heard nothing. The 
person to whom we refer was named Hartman Von Burn, born 
at Weinheim in the Bergstrass, and emigrated as a man of 
business to Holland, where he established himself, and from 
which it appears that he wished to send a son to do business 
at Weinheim ; he did not, however, do so, and we heard that 
he with his son emigrated to America. 

This Hartman Von Burn had sisters, of whom one went 
with him to Holland; the other however remained here in 
Weinheim, and I am her grand-daughter. All our endeavours 
to hear news of them were vain, and we have at length taken 
the liberty to address your Excellency and most respectfully 
to request that in case the said Hartman should have been 
your grandfather you will do us the honour and give us the 
pleasure to let us know it In that case, we can be ready to 
furnish his certificate of baptism as also that of your Father. 
In case, however, you should not be as we suppose, we most 
respectfully request your Excellency to pardon us for the 
inquiry. We have availed ourselves of the circumstance of 
the return of Mr. (Merkel) ( ?) who emigrated from this place 

History op Coenkus Mabssin Van Buken 125 

to America in 1804, and has been here on a visit, to send this 

Again requesting your Excellency to pardon the liberty we 
have taken, I have the honour respectfully to sign myself, 

Your Excellency's 



Chaxlotte Gttjjch. 

Our address is Weinheim in the Bergstrass in the Grand 
Duchy of Baden, to Friedreich Gillich, Master tailor. 

Letter from John Van Buren to Martin Van Buren, March 
26, 1845. Encloses a copy (translated) of the will of Martin 

"You will see that whenever the name of Van Buren was 
written in English, it was spelt Van Beuren, being an attempt 
to translate the sound of the Dutch letter u. This was tne 
cause of the letter # being put into the name as mentioned to 
me by my grandfather Tobias in his lifetime. We trace back 
to the testator as follows. My father's name is Cornelius, 
eldest child of Tobias, who was the eldest child of Cornelius, 
who was the eldest child of Tobias, who was the son of Cor-

"My dear Son, 

"If you think that I prefer the company here, pleasant as 
it is, to yours, you are very much mistaken. I, on the con- 
trary, long for nothing so much as to be once more located in 
apartments with you at some place where the climate agrees 
with you and where we may flatter ourselves with hopes of 
your recovery."

The funeral of Brevet General James Lyman Van Buren, 
who died in this city at the residence of his father. No. 46 
Union Square, on Friday last, took place y e ste r da y afternoon. 
Though a young man, General Van Buren was widely known 
and universally respected and esteemed, alike for his abilities 
as a soldier and a scholar. In the spring of 1861 he was com- 
missioned as Second Lieutenant in the Fifty-third New York 
Volunteers (known as the d'Epeneuil Zouaves), with which 
regiment he remained for some months, doing duty at An- 
napolis, Maryland, until he was transferred to the Signal corps 
as chief officer. When the Burnside expedition was fitting 
out at Annapolis he was appointed as aid-de-camp on General 
Foster's staff. During the battle of Roanoke Island, in the 
discharge of his duty, he was constantly under fire, deporting 
himself with the utmost coolness and bravery. When the 
Ninth Corps moved to Newbern, North Carolina, he acted as 
aid on the staff of General Burnside, and was subsequently 
made Assistant Judge Advocate General for that department 
Soon after the President appointed Governor Stanley as Pro- 
visional Governor of North Carolina he was promoted to the

full rank of Major and appointed as Military Secretary to the 
Governor, which office he held until the Ninth Corps joined the 
Army of the Potomac He remained with his corps until 
Burnside was removed from the command of the Army of the 
Potomac and ordered to the Department of Ohio, in the spring 
of 1863, to which place he accompanied General Burnside, and 
was actively engaged all through the campaign in East Ten- 
nessee. He participated in the siege of Knoxville in the fall of 
1863, and was one of the party of officers who rode out to wel- 
come General Sherman on his relief of that position. 

In the winter of 1864-5 the Ninth Corps was reorganized and 
filled up with colored troops. Major Van Buren then rejoined 
his old corps, and with it participated in the victories and de- 
feats throughout the final campaign of the rebellion. At the 
mine explosion and battle of July 31, at Fort Steadman and the 
final attack on Petersburg, he was particularly conspicuous for 
gallantry, and for his bearing on those occasions and long and 
faithful service to the country he received his brevet as lieuten- 
ant-colonel and brevet brigadier-generaL Last August, while 
home waiting orders, he was attacked with chills and fever, 
besides suffering from a diseased liver, which it is thought 
were incidental to the jaundice, a disease that he contracted 
while in service at North Carolina. He has never been in per- 
fect health since. Surrounded by fond parents and a host of 
friends he has thus peacefully breathed his last James Lyman 
Van Buren was in the twenty-ninth year of his age, a native of 
Dunkirk, near Lake Erie, in this State, and a graduate of the 
Free Academy of this city. At that school he was considered 
one of the brightest scholars, and his associations with his 
classmates were of such an amicable nature that none of them 
will read of his death without a feeling of regret at his early 

He was commissioned as aid on the staff of General Parke, 
on the 1st of the present month. Yesterday afternoon the 
Twelfth Regiment, National Guard, in accordance with orders 
promulgated from division headquarters, acted as funeral es- 
cort to the deceased, and, accompanied by the United States 
band from Governor's Island, made a fine appearance. The 


remains were taken to the Fourth Avenue Presbyterian 
Church, corner of Twenty-second Street,' where the solemn 
and impressive services for the dead were celebrated; after 
which a beautiful eulogy on the life and patriotic services of 
the deceased was delivered by the Rev. Howard Crosby, D.D., 
and the remains were then conveyed to their last resting place 
in Greenwood. (1866.)

The following is a clipping from one of the Chicago papers: 
"Judge Evert Van Buren lies at the point of death at his resi- 
dence, 679 West Adams Street Judge Van Buren is long 
known to legal fame. He was one of the oldest practitioners at 
the Cook County bar. He was born at Kinderhook, Columbia 
County, N. Y., Nov. 3, 1803. Receiving an academic education, 
he read law with J. & A. Vanderpoel, of his native town, and 
was admitted to the bar in 1827, afterward settling in Penn Yan, 
Yates County, N. Y. Practise came to him almost from the 
beginning of his career, and he was esteemed the peer of the 

142 History of Cowelis Maisssm Van Bubsk 

best lawyers in the county, among whom were numbered John 
C Spencer and Dudley Marvin. 

"In the "flush times' of 1836 he moved to Buffalo. His 
reputation had preceded him and success attended his efforts. 
As a lawyer, especially in criminal cases, his triumphs were many 
and brilliant Urged by his friends in Penn Yan, he returned 
to that town in 1840. He represented his con g re ssi onal dis- 
trict in the national anti-masonic convention in 1833, being the 
youngest man in the convention. Coming to Chicago in 1856, he 
soon acquired a lucrative practise and was elected Judge of the 
Recorder's Court, faithfully discharging his duties to the end 
of his term. 

"He entered actively into practise again and continued to take 
great interest in his profession until quite recently, when the 
accumulating ills of old age lowered him to his present precarious

died at such an early age, and sincerely was she mourned not 
only by her family, but by a large circle of true friends who 
appreciated the quiet, gentle dignity of her manner and the 
genuineness of her christian character. Grandfather was one 
of the old-time gentlemen: quiet, dignified, but whose eye 
would kindle and whose face would be wreathed with a quiet 
smile when a good story was told, but who would never 
countenance anything which savored of coarseness. He was 
an Elder in the Dutch Reformed Church at Stuyvesant Falls 
for all the years from its establishment until due to advancing 
years he sold his farm and moved to Kindcrhook, where he 
died He never held public offices, but was sought by many 
for his advice and council, and his word was always as good 
as his bond

of the County of Columbia believing it fit and proper that a 
public expression be made of their sincere sorrow for the 
mortality that has removed from their places here and among 
men three valued and useful members of the Board of Super* 
visors of 1875, an occurrence believed to be without a parallel 
in the history of this county, under a deep sense of the 
bereavement sustained by them and by the county at large, 
but more especially by the families and immediate constituents 
of our late associates; Resolved, (unanimously), That in 
testimony of our appreciation of the private character and 
public worth and services of our fellow members, William 
H. Snyder, of Gallitin ; Uriah Feller, of Clermont, and John 
Van Buren, of Stockport, we place upon the records of our 
board this memorial, preamble and resolution." He was an

THOMAS HARVEY* VAN BUREN, Barent/ Harmon/ Bar- 
ents Pieter,* Marten,* Cornelis, 1 

He was the second son of Barent Van Buren and his wife, 
Grace Denison Van Buren. He was b. in Mayfield, N. Y., 
Sept 22, 1795. He was united in marriage Sept 17, 1817, to 
Miss Betsey Ayers of Johnstown, N. Y. Shortly after their 
marriage they moved to Gouverneur, N. Y., and settled on 
what is now known as the Johnstown Road, this street having 
received its name from die early settlers, many of whom came 
from Johnstown. Besides their clothing, Mr. Van Buren 
was only equipped with an ax. Arriving at Gouverneur they 
went to die home of John Thrall, a brother-in-law, where they 
stayed a week, during which time Mr. Van Buren had chopped 
die trees and hewn them out, completing a cozy little log 
cabin for himself and his young bride to begin life in for 
themselves. With untiring industry and perseverance he kept 
on clearing up his tract of land until there was sufficient lumber 
to build a good frame house, and eleven years later they moved 
into their new home. At that time Mr. Van Buren had to go 
horseback to Rossie, guided only by marked trees, a distance 
of about 17 miles to get nails to build his new home with, and 
paid a shilling a pound for them. Both Mr. Van Buren and 
his wife were good, staunch Presbyterians, among the first 
to help found a church in Gouverneur. They had to walk 
to church, a distance of two miles, so they went bare-footed 
until they nearly reached the church, when they stopped by 
the roadside and put on their shoes and stockings. Later they 
were able to drive to church with their oxen team hitched to 
a lumber wagon. Many were the difficulties under which 
our forefathers lived. All clothing had to be spun and woven 
by hand, there being no mills at that time in this new country. 
Their food also had to be ground by hand. Thomas Harvey

Van Buren was a soldier in the war of 1812. Mr. Van Buren 
and his wife were blessed with five children: 

763 Caroline, b. Mar. 16; d. Apr. 5, 1819. 

764 Willard, b. Apr. 9; A May 7, 182a 

765 Orville, b. Nov. 5, 1821 ; m. 1843, Lucy Jane Laur- 

ence, by whom he had two children: Emma Jane, 
Sarah. His second wife was Delia C Chamber- 
lain; children: Frank, Grace, Clara. 

766 Harriet, b. Apr. 25, 1822; m. John McElhinney; 

children: Harriet, Ella, George, William, John, 

767 Lucretia, b. May 1, 1831 ; m. William H. Smith; no 

children. Still resides in Gonverneur. These 
children were all born in the little log cabin except 
die youngest, Lucretia, who came after they were 
settled in their new home. 

Major William John McElhinney, second son of John Mc- 
Elhinney, and his wife, Harriet Van Buren McElhinney, (766), 
and a grandson of Thomas (487) Harvey Van Buren, was born 
at Brockville, Ontario, Canada, Sept 27, 1862; educated at the 
Royal Military College, Kingston, Canada, from which he was 
graduated with honors, June 11, 1881. 

In September, 1881, he was appointed assistant engineer on 
the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway, with head- 
quarters at Winnepeg, and remained there until 1885, when he 
was offered a Lieutenant's commission in the British Army, 
through Colonel E. D. Hewitt, commandant of the Royal Military 
College of Canada. 

He accepted the offer and proceeded to London, England, to 
report himself to the Adjutant-General at the War Office in 
White Hall, London, in December, 1885, and on January 6, 
1886, was gazetted in the London Gazette to be a Lieutenant in 
the corps of Royal Engineers, of which his Royal Highness, 
the Prince of Wales, afterward King Edward VII was Colonel 
Major McElhinney then joined the headquarters of the corps of 
Royal Engineers at Chatham and was on military duty there 
until February, 1887. 

History of Cornelis Mabssbn Van Buxen 151 

In June, 1886, he was presented at Court to Her Majesty 
Queen Victoria, at a Levee held at St James Palace in London, 
with other young officers who were commissioned during the 
previous year. 

February, 1887, he was ordered abroad for service in India 
and went to Bombay by troopship, arriving there in March and 
was posted for duty with a regiment of Sappers and Miners 
(Royal Engineers) at Poona. 

In September, 1887, he was ordered to join the Field Force 
in Upper Burmah, which under the command of General Sir 
George White, was ordered to pacify the country. The army of 
the ex-king of Burma scattered when that country was annexed 
to Great Britain in 1885 an< * m devastating the country until 
it was completely subdued by the British troops. The general 
warfare lasted three years, and for his services in that campaign 
Lieutenant McElhinney was awarded the Silver Frontier Medal 
of India with a silver bar inscribed — Upper Burma, 1887-1889, 

In September, 1890, a military force of all arms assembled 
at Luetta in Baluchistan and marched down the Zhob Valley 
into Southern Afghanistan against certain Afghan tribes who 
had been raiding and killing in British Territory. Lieutenant 
McElhinney was on duty as a staff officer throughout the expedi- 
tion, which resulted in the complete pacification of the country 
and the annexation of a large slice of Afghan territory to Great 

After the return of the expedition in the spring of 1891 Lieu- 
tenant McElhinney was employed in various military duties in 
different parts of India, and was promoted to the rank of 
Captain in July, 1895. In 1898 he was selected for staff employ- 
ment with the headquarters of the government of India at Simla 
in the summer and Calcutta in the winter, and on the 3rd of 
April, 1899, he was married at Christ Church, Simla, to Nora 
Evelyn Jackson, second daughter of the late Major W. Jackson, 
of the Royal Engineers. To them a son, Geoffrey William, was 
born at Lucknow on the 16th of December, 1900, and his wife 
died at Naini Tal in the Himalayas on the 21st of July, 1901. 

Captain McElhinney was promoted to the rank of Major in 
August, 1903, and retired from the army January, 191 1, and 
settled in England in order to supervise the education of his son.

PETER T VAN BUREN, Bare*/ Harmen/ Barent/ Pieter,* 
Marten, 1 Cornelia/ 

b. Nov. 19, 1804 ; bap. Feb. 19, 1805 ; was the fourth son oi 
Barent and Grace (Denison) Van Buren. 

When about 16 years of age he came to Gouverneur, where 
two elder brothers, Harmon and Thomas Harvey, had pre- 
ceded him. He was employed as clerk by Moses Rowley, who 
was then a leading and prominent man in the town. Peter 
married, May 12, 1831, Maria Cadwell of Lowville, and after 
their marriage he commenced the business of his life as hotel- 
keeper. In 1848 he built the Van Buren House, which he 
kept up to one year of his death. In the meantime, after erect- 
ing the new hotel he bought the property which he had rented 
for 15 years, converted it into stores for a number of years, 
then into two private residences and after his death it was oc- 
cupied by his widow and daughter Emeline, until Mrs. Van 
Buret's death, when it came into the possession of the daugh- 
ter. Peter leased from the AveriDs of Ogdensburgh a piece of 
land which they owned in the center of the village and which 
was originally a part of a sand-bed; he filled in and seeded it 
down and set all the trees, which as fast as they died out, he 
replaced with new ones ; drew water from the river in barrels 
on a stone-boat and carried it in pails to water the trees. After 
his ten-year lease had expired, the land still being owned by 
the Averills some of the citizens thought it should be used for 
building purposes as it was too valuable to be devoted to a 
park; then some of the leading men took up the matter and 
wrote to Mr. Averill. He replied that he would donate it to 
the village with the understanding that it should never be 
used for any other purpose than a park. 

Mr. Charles Van Duzee once said to Miss Emiline Van 
Buren: "Your father has left the greatest monument to this 
village that ever could be erected to his memory/ 9 No one 
in northern New York was more favorably or better known. 
He was the ideal old-time gentleman and the familiarities used 
in hotels were never allowed to degenerate into license. No 


ribaldry or profanity was ever heard when the proprietor was 
near, nor could any patron indulge his appetite too freely. 
Tradition has preserved many incidents of his life and all are 
to his credit He was a boniface of the best sort and his 
memory will long survive. He died May 14, 187a

Their children were : 

789 Albert Milton Barney, b. in Gouverneur, N. Y., 
Nov. 18, 1837; d. in New York, Aug. 24, 1886; 
was the eldest son of Milton Barney and Kath* 
erine Van Buren Barney. He was educated at 
Gouverneur Wesleyan Seminary and subse- 
quently took a course in higher mathematics 
and civil engineering, to which he added a 
course in law and was prepared to take his ex- 
amination, when the firing on Fort Sumter 
changed the course of his life. On the receipt 
of the intelligence, Apr. 15, 1861, that the Na- 
tional flag had been struck, he wrote in con- 
spicuous letters and posted on the. door of the 
village post-office, the words : "Fort Sumter has 
been fired upon ; all patriots and lovers of their 

HiSTOftY or Coeneus Masssbn Van Buien 155 

country are requested to take action in this 
crisis." At the meeting convened upon this 
notice, he was the first to volunteer in the com- 
pany sent out from his native town. He was 
commissioned xst Lieut and mustered into the 
U. S. service in the 16th N. Y. Vol Infantry, 
May 15, 1861 ; promoted to Captain in the same 
regiment, June 26, 1863; Lieut Col. 142nd N. 
Y. Vol. Infantry, Jan. 21, J863 ; Col. same regi- 
ment Jan. 15, 1865, and Brevet Brigadier Gen- 
eral U. S. Vols., March 28, 1865, and mustered 
out with his regiment June 7, 1865, closing a 
term of over four years of active military ser- 
vice, present and ready for duty at all times 
and in every engagement and battle in which 
his regiment participated, performing his duty 
with so much ability and distinguished bravery, 
that his several promotions were made on the 
official recommendations of his superior officers, 
without the solicitation or interference of po- 
litical or personal friends. In Feb., 1869, he 
was appointed Special Agent U. S. Treasury. 
A few months later, Collector of Customs at the 
Port of Brownsville, Texas. Two years later, 
appointed Special Agent of the Treasury, which 
position he held at the time of his death. He 
was an officer, military and civil, of the Fed- 
eral Government twenty-one years, charged 
with great responsibilities, important trusts, 
delicate transactions, involving the custody and 
disbursement of a large sum of public money, 
each of which he discharged with high courage, 
great ability and sound discretion, and with such 
scrupulous exactness in financial transactions, 
that no auditing officer found an error in his 
accounts. He was twice married ; his first wife 
was Leonora Chamberlain, daughter of Peleg 
Chamberlain of Gouverneur, — his second wife

He studied at the Kinderhook Academy and graduated 
from West Point in 1827. Served on the Western frontier 
for two years ; was aide-de-camp to Gen. Alexander McComb 
for seven years; made Captain in the 1st Dragoons in 1836; 
resigned to become private secretary to his father in 1836; 
he re-entered the Army at the beginning of the Mexican War 
as Major and Paymaster; was with Gen. Zachary Taylor at 
Monterey, and .with Gen. Scott in every engagement from 
Vera Cruz to the capture of the city of Mexico. 

He was brevetted Lieut-Col. for bravery at Contraas and 
Churnambusco in 1847, and served in the Paymaster's De- 
partment until 1854, when he resigned. He died in New York 
City, Mar. 15, 1873. 

Angelica Singleton, the wife of Abraham, deserves more 
than a passing notice. Her father, Richard Singleton, was a 
prominent planter of South Carolina. While she was at- 
tending school at Philadelphia she visited her cousin, the 
of ex-President Madison, and by her was presented to 

History or Cornelis Mabssbn Van Bubbn 159 

President Van Buren. This led to her introduction to Abra- 
ham, the son of the President, in 1838, and the following year 
she made her appearance as Mistress of the White House at 
the New Year's Day reception ; her youth and beauty at once 
made her very popular. A trip to England the following 
year and the advantages which accrued from the fact that 
her uncle was U. S. Minister to the Court of St James, were 
exceptional She extended her visit to the Continent and 
returned to Washington fully equipped to resume her place 
as the first lady of the. land in an exceptionally brilliant so- 
ciety assembled at the Capitol She maintained her position 
in society until the time of her death which occurred in New 
York City, Dec 29, 1878.

Albany; she d. Nov. 19, 1844. 

John graduated at Yale in 1828; was admitted to the Bar 
in 1830. He was Attorney-General for the State of New 
York, 1845-1846. 

Much has been written about his unusually brilliant mind 
and career and there are many who have said that if he had 
lived, doubtless he would have succeeded to the Presidency, 
as he was a more brilliant and intellectual man than his father. 
While with his father as private secretary, during his term 
of service as Minister to England, he was given entree to the 
most exclusive society, where his accomplishments and fault- 

160 History of Cornkus Marssrn Van Burrn 


less manners made him quite the lion of the season. It is 
recorded that at one of the court functions he danced with 
Queen Victoria and thereafter he was called u Prince John." 
Upon his return to America he resumed the practice of law 
and soon won fame as one of the leading lawyers of his day. 
According to a Chronicle of Events at Albany at a meeting 
held Oct 8, 1847, °* that portion of the Democratic party 
known as "Barn'Burners," it is stated, There was much rain 
from above and indignation from below, as John Van Buren 
recited the wrongs and perils of himself and co-adjutors at a 
recent convention at Saratoga, where they were out as ir- 
regular delegates." His speech was received with great ap- 
plause on all sides. During the trial of the Anti-renters at 
Hudson, N. Y., he as Attorney-General for the State, as- 
sisted the Attorney for Columbia County. 

Ambrose L. Jordan, also a leading lawyer, was the lead- 
ing counsel for the defense. John W. Edmonds was the 
Judge. There was much in the circumstances connected 
with the case to excite counsel and as the trial proceeded 
these two famous lawyers increased in their acerbity towards 
each other until a personal encounter seemed imminent. To 
quote from Ellis 9 History of Columbia County, "John W. 
Edmonds, then one of the circuit judges, presided. He dis- 
charged his judicial duties inflexibly and yet courteously." . 

M Perhaps a more independent and pure judge than he never 
sat on the bench of the Supreme Court of the State. But the 
position he occupied on this occasion was trying in the ex- 
treme. Before him were two of the most renowned coun- 
selors in the State, glaring at each other with the ferocity of 
opposing gladiators, ready to rend each other in brutal con- 

14 For a long time the forbearance, dignity and firmness of 
the judge restrained them, keeping them within the pale of 
respectful deference to the place which they occupied. But 
as the fourth day of the trial was drawing to a close, a scene 
occurred rarely witnessed in a court of justice." 

u The vindictive passions of the counsel passed beyond 
control and a personal encounter ensued. Both lawyers had 

Histoby or Cobnit.15 Mabssbn Van Buibn 161 

for some time indulged in personalities which the judge 
could not suppress. Retort followed retort, and denunciation 
was followed by bitter taunts. At length Mr. Jordan, while 
addressing the court as to the admissibility of certain evi- 
dence offered by Mr. Van Buren, indulged in language the 
most bitter and insulting. "The attorney-general does not 
care for the condition of these men. He has not contended 
for right or justice, but to make an exhibition of himself — to 
pander to the miserable ambition which was the curse of his 
father. Though his father had brains to temper his wild 
ambition in some degree, the son has none to temper his, and 
it breaks out anywhere in puerility and slush. 91 Van Buren 
utswered the legal objections raised by Jordan with great 
calmness, force and dignity. Having concluded his argu- 
ment, he said, with contempt curling his lips, "The counsel 
opposed has informed your honor the cause of my presence 
here. I shall not stoop to deny his coarse assertions; but 
allow me to add that it is quite out of place for a man who 
stands here in this court with the contributions of murder 
and arson in his pockets to criticise me for any cause what- 
ever." "A dark, withering frown mounted the menacing fea- 
tures of Jordan; his nostrils expanded; vivid gleams of anger 
flashed from his large, expressive eyes, and in a twinkling of 
an eye he planted a heavy blow upon the face of Van Buren. 
It was returned with rapidity of lightning; and with stagger- 
ing effect ; then, grappling with each other, a terrible struggle 
ensued. Rage and fury made those great lawyers forgetful of 
their positions as ministers of justice, deaf to the voice of the 
judge, to everything but their desire for vengeance. Sheriff 
Waldo rushed into the bar and with his assistants separated 
the combatants." 

"As soon as order was restored, Judge Edmonds addressed 

them with great calmness, dignity and eloquence. He alluded 
to the high standing of the counsel, not only before the State 
but also the Nation ; to the baleful example they had set be- 
fore the world ; to their desecration of the temple of justice ; 
to the great insult they had given to the court "Should I neg- 
lect to promptly punish you for the very great wrong you 

162 History of Cornelm Maessbn Van Buibm 

have done, I should myself be unworthy to occupy the bench. 
The court regrets that it did not punish your first infraction 
of the rule of decency; but as that is passed, it will now, by a 
proper interposition of the strong arm of the law, inflict such a 
punishment upon you as will preserve its dignity, and we 
trust, prevent a reoccurrence of the disgraceful scene we have 
just witnessed. The court therefore sentences both of you to 
solitary confinement in the county jail for twenty-four hours." 
When the judge concluded Mr. Van Buren arose and with im- 
pressive dignity made an apology couched in words of touch- 
ing eloquence, concluding as follows : "What could I do, your 
honor, what could I do under the coarse insults I have been 
subjected to during this trial ? I acknowledge I have violated 
the decorum of this court and should be punished. But I pray 
your honor not to degrade me by punishment in the common 
jail, for I feel that I cannot endure that I beg your honor to 
so far modify the sentence of the court as to inflicts fine upon 
me — I care not how large the' amount may be. The example 
of such a fine would be sufficient and I am sure justice would 
be vindicated." "But the judge was firm, and inexorable— the 
very personification of justice in the act of inflicting punish- 
ment upon its ministers. The court,* said the judge, 'can see 
no reason for modifying its sentence; the supremacy of the 
law must be maintained. It is no respecter of persons; it 
looks only to their acts, and measures its punishments ac- 
cording to those acts, without regard to the standing of the 
actors. Sheriff, you will now conduct these persons to the 
county jail and keep them in solitary confinement for the term 
of twenty-four hours, during which time the court will ad- 

"Amid the profound, almost stifling silence, the sheriff 
obeyed, and in his custody, two of the most eminent lawyers 
of the State of New York passed out of the court-house and 
were soon incarcerated in the walls of the Columbia County 
jail." "Before the opening of the court on the morning of 
the altercation described, Judge Edmonds had received an in- 
vitation to spend an evening with ex-President Van Buren at 
Lindenwald. John was to be his companion in the visit, but

before the appointed time he had been committed to jail." 
"The term for which Van Buren and Jordan had been im- 
prisoned having expired, they entered the courtroom with a 
nonchalance that was really amusing. An hour or two elapsed 
when a short recess took place, during which Van Buren ap- 
proached the bench, laid his arm easily but carelessly upon it 
and in his peculiar manner remarked, 'I hope your honor slept 
well last night 9 'As there was nothing to disturb my slum- 
bers, I most certainly did.' 'I thought perhaps it might be 
possible that your conscience, your sympathy or the thoughts 
of Our unenviable position might disturb your slumbers/ said 
Van Buren with a characteristic smile, 'but, 9 he continued, 'the 
law is now vindicated; my offense is attoned. I suppose, 
Judge, our arrangement to visit the old man is still in force. 
He will be delighted to see me under the circumstances, and, 
Judge, I think his respect for you, on the whole, will not be 
diminished on account of the lodgings you assigned me last 
night. I know him of old/ 1 think, Mr. Van Buren, the time 
we have lost in this trial will render the visit to ex-President 
Van Buren impossible/ And the visit to the old man did not 
take place." 

"The trial continued several days after the release of the 
distinguished prisoners. It finally resulted in the conviction 
of 'Big Thunder 9 and several anti-renters, and they were sen* 
tenced to imprisonment for life in the State prison. The man- 
ner in which Van Buren conducted the prosecution gave him 
great popularity. Among the evidences of this he, with the 
anti-renter leader, was made the subject of the following 
conundrum : 'Why is John Van Buren a greater man than 
Dr. Franklin? 9 'Because Franklin bottled lightning, but Van 
Buren bottled Thunder/ After the close of his term as At- 
torney-General for the State he became a prominent member 
of the legal profession in New York City. In the Presidential 
canvass of 1848 he greatly distinguished himself as a popular 
advocate of the principles of the free Democratic Party and 
of the exclusion of slavery from the territories. Afterwards 
he returned to the Democratic Party. 99 

In 1866 he made an extended tour of Europe and died on 
the homeward voyage.

tured and taken to Edgefield Jail ; from there he was sent to 
Augusta, Ga., and then back to Columbia; was confined in 
"Camp Sorghum/ 9 near Columbia, from where he escaped, but 
was recaptured near Augusta, Ga., and then taken back to 

In Jan., 1865, he was taken from the Stockade near Co- 
lumbia to Asylum Camp, within the city limits, and soon 
after he was taken to Charlotte, N. G, for two days, and then 
to Raleigh, N. C. ; these last two moves were made to get the 
prisoners out of the way of Sherman's army. He was finally 
taken to Wilmington, N. G, and exchanged on Mar. 1, 1865, 
after 295 days of confinement in "Libby Prison" and 310 days 
in Danville, Salsburg, Macon, Charleston and Columbia. The 
writer well remembers his telling how they travelled at night 
when on their escapements, and finally thinking they were 
within the lines of the Union army they decided to risk it to 
travel by daylight and had only gone a very short distance 
when a Rebel officer stepped up to my uncle and laying his 
hand on his shoulder, said, "You are my prisoner." Uncle 
said it seemed as if he would have rather died right there than 
go back to the prisons, but he only said, "I suppose so," and 
was marched off. Like many others, his health was shattered, 
and he always suffered from heart disease, but attended to the 
various Pension offices to which he was appointed.

was b. at Ghent, N. Y. 9 Aug. 6, 1839; m. (1) Jan. 26, i860, 
to Margaret J. Williams, of Valatia, N. Y., who was b. at 
Kinderhook, Aug. 28, 1832, and d. Nov. 8, 1895, at Chatham 
(see Williams) ; m. (2) June 20, 1898, to Augusta Clark, of 
Lebanon Springs, who was b. Aug. 27, 1871. 

He received his early education at Kinderhook Academy 
and at Claverack, but his health failing, he had to relinquish 
his plans for a College course, and finished his education with 
private tutors. He taught in several schools in Columbia 
County, and pursued his own studies at the same time. On 
Oct 1, i860, he was ordained as a Baptist minister at Lebanon 
Springs, where he served his first pastorate. 

In consequence of a severe bronchial affection which ren- 
dered it impossible for him to preach, he retired to a farm for 
nearly two years, at the end of which he had recovered his 
voice and accepted a call to a large church at Newark, N. Y. 
While pastor there, there was erected a large and elegant 
church edifice. From there he was called to the pastorate of 
the Baptist Church, in the city of Dowagiac, Mich. While 
here he was attacked with materia in its most aggravated 
form, and nearly lost his life, but returning again to Colum- 
bia County, he once more regained sufficient health as to en- 
able him to re-enter ministerial work, and accepted a call to 
the Baptist Church at Athens-on-the-Hudson, N. Y. Later 
he was pastor for four years at Johnson's Creek, Niagara 
County, N. Y., where once again he almost succumbed to a 
long and serious illness.

Physicians telling him he could never preach again, he 
decided to complete the necessary course in medicine which 
he had studied as a pastime for years. On June 29, 1882, he 
received his license to practice medicine as a Homoepathk 
physician. He recovered his health sufficiently so that he 
again entered into active ministerial work, and became for the 
second time the Pastor of the Lebanon Springs, N. Y., Church, 
where he served for eight years, and also pursued the practice 
of medicine. Later he was Pastor of the Baptist Church at 
East Chatham, N. Y., for some years. After the death of his 
wife he returned to Lebanon Springs and served again as their 
Pastor, and later married there his present wife. While not 
actively engaged as Pastor for some years now, he frequently 
supplies churches for brief periods. He continues the prac- 
tice of medicine. He is a Life Member of the American 
Tract Society and The Missionary Union.

For some reason known only to himself and not recorded, 
Maas took as his surname the name of Bloeniendael, or Bloeni-

named his farm Bloemingdale, because of its fertility, and, as 
already stated in the history of Cornelia, the custom of patro- 
mymic names not as yet having been established, he saw no 
objection to assuming that of the place where he resided, as 
well as that his brothers should assume the name of the place 
from whence their father had come in Holland. Maas d. in

234 History or Cqinilxs Maessin Van Buxbk 


JOAB BAKER, the first of this family in America, came 
from England and settled in Roxbury, Conn. He had a son, 
Joab (a), who settled in Coeymans and in 1791 he m. Hannah 
Ashmore of London, England, a dan. of John Ashmore, a brewer 
of note in England, who came to the United States and made 
large purchases of land in Coeymans; he d. in New York City 
of yellow fever. They had seven children, of whom die eldest, 
John, was b. at Coeymans Square, now called Ravena, Albany 
County, and d. aged eighty-six years. He was a leather mer- 
chant; he m. at Pktua, Albany County, Margaret Vrooman. 

Mary Ann Baker, m. Peter Van Buren; their only child, Anna 

L. Van Buren. 
Cornells Vrooman Baker became a prominent farmer in town 

of Bethlehem, and m. Caroline Lasher of Bethlehem, and 

had children as follows: Alexander, Charles, Abbie S-, 

and Edward* 
Mary Jane Baker, m. Cornells Vrooman of Bethlehem, and 

had children, viz.: Albert, Anna A., Caroline, May and 

John F. 


The progenitor of the American branch of this family bore 
the name of Epke Jacobs, Epke, son of Jacob; Epke is a Frisian 
name and corresponds to the English name Egbert The first 
record of Banta as a surname in America is that of a marriage 
in die Dutch Reformed Church at Hackensack, Bergen County, 
N. J., on Aug. 22, 1696, which stated that Johannes Meyer of 
New York was married to Jannetie Cornelise Banta from u Acken- 
sack;" the bride was the first born of Cornells and probably he 
was the eldest son of the immigrant This was the first marriage 
of the Banta family in America that had been born in America. 
Epke Jacobs, before he came to America was a farmer and lived 
in the vicinity of Harbingen, an important seaport of Friesland, 
in the most northern part of Holland; it is supposed that he 
settled at Flushing, Long Island, but as the town records were 
lost by the fire of 1789 it is impossible to prove it He made 

will in Flushing in 1669; his children were:

He was born in Holland, probably in the town of Woerden, 
near Utrecht, in 1607, and matriculated as a Student of Letters 
at Leyden University July 7, 1627, when he was twenty years

of age. In the Minutes of the Qassis of Amsterdam, Holland, 
June 7, 1632, it is mentioned that "Everardus Bogardus, who was 
formerly a Comforter of the Sick in Guinea, presented his Testi- 
monials to the d aftfit„ which are very excellent. He then 
requested to be examined by the Qassis peremptoir (i. #., finally, 
for ordination), which request was granted him. June 14, 1632, 
he treated a proposition (preached a sermon) * * * and was 
thereupon admitted to the examination, and was promoted 
(ordained). 99 He was sent to New Netherland, and probably 
came with Director General Woulter Van T wilier, who arrived 
in New Amsterdam in the ship Salt Mountain April, 1633. He 
was the first resident minister in the little Dutch Settlement on 
Manhattan Island, but not the first preacher. In 1628, a Rev. 
Jonas Johannes Mkhaelius officiated for some time. Dom. 
Michaelius was minister of the church at Hem, North Holland, 
from 1614 to 1624, when he went to San Salvador, Brazil, and in 
1638 became the first Dutch minister' at New Amsterdam, 
(Ecclesiastical Records, State of New York, VoL D, p. 181). 

It has been stated by some authorities that Domine Bogardus 
was a widower when he arrived in New Amsterdam. However 
that may be, he married at that place Annetje Janse, widow of 
Roelof Jansen. "June 21, 1642, declaration, Anetje Jans, widow 
of Roelof Janse, of Masterland, deceased, as to the provision she 
made in March, 1638, for her children by said Jansen, previous 
to her marriage with Rev. Everadus Borgardus." — (Calendar of 
New York Historical Mss., Dutch, p. 18). On June 21, 1642, 
a license to marry was issued to Everardus Bogardus and Anna 
Jansen (Albany Records, VoL 3, p. 37; given in N. Y. Marriages, 
p. 35). In 1647, he resigned his pastorate in New Amsterdam 
and obtained permission to return to Holland. He took passage 
on the ship Princess in August, 1647. While off the coast of 
England the mariners mistook the channel, entered the estuary 
of the river Severn and were shipwrecked on the coast of Wales, 
Sept 27, 1647. All on board perished, among whom was Domine 
Bogardus. Annetje Janse survived him sixteen years. She 
removed to Beverwyck, now Albany, where she died in 1663; 
her will was dated January 29, 1663. Annetje Janse or Anneke 
Jans, as she is more often spoken of, is perhaps better known 
to posterity than her husband, Domine Bogardus, through the 

238 History of Cornelis Mabsssn Van Burin. 

litigations which from time to time her heirs have instituted 
against the corporation of Trinity Church, New York, for the 
possession of land belonging to that church corporation. 

Annetje Janse was the daughter of Catharine, or as the name 
is usually given, Trynje Jonas, who was the official midwife of 
the Dutch West Indies Company in Holland, and as early as 1616 
in New Amsterdam. 

Her first husband was Roelof Jansen'of Maesterland, who 
was in New Amsterdam in 163a They removed about that time 
to Fort Orange, now Albany, where Roelof was employed as 
foreman or steward by the Patroon Van Rensselaer, on his 
de Laets Burg Bouwerie, or farm. On July 1, 1662, he was 
appointed Schepen, an office much like an Alderman. He carried 
on a trade with the Indians, on his own account A beautiful 
little stream is called by his name, in Columbia County, "Roelof 
Jansen's Kill" Prior to 1635 Roelof Jansen and his wife, 
Annetje Janse, removed back to New Amsterdam, where he 
""acquired a tract of land from Director General Van T wilier of 
about sixty acres, on the shore of the North or Hudson River. 
It was situated some distance to the north of Trinity Church, 
about the site of the present Jay street and West Broadway. 
Here he built a farmhouse, but ere he had time to more than 
begin to cultivate his farm he died, and the property passed into 
the hands of his widow, Annetje Janse, who was left with the 
care of the farm and four little children. 

After her second marriage to Dom. Bogardus, the farm was 
known as the "Domine's bouwerie, 99 and was their home. When 
Dom. Bogardus died and Annetje removed to Beaverwyck, this 
land became a part of what was called "the King's farm," which 
extended some distance further south, and embraced the present 
site of Trinity Church. It is not known exactly how it pasied 
into the possession of the King's Farm. Whether it was bought 
from Annetje or her children, or whether it lapsed to the Crown 
after her death, has never been clearly shown. On Nov. 15, 
1705, a portion of the King's farm, including this tract, was 
given by partition to the corporation of Trinity Church. 

This is the famous "Annetje Janse farm," now situated iu 
the very heart of New York's most valuable business section,

which many thousands have been spent

The ancestor of the Brodhead family is said to have come 
from Germany to England, and to have settled at Royston, in 
Yorkshire, in the reign of Henry VHL On Feb. 28th, 1610, 
James I granted the manor of Burton or Monk Britton, in the 
west riding of Yorkshire, to John Brodhead and George Wood, 
the principal freeholders of that place.

DANIEL BRODHEAD, grand-nephew of John, the 
above-named grantee, was the ancestor of those who bear the 
name in the United States. He was born in Yorkshire, mar* 
ried Ann Tye, was an officer in the army of King Charles II, 
and accompanied the expedition of Colonel Nicolls from Eng- 
land in 1664. He was appointed commander-in-chief of the 
military forces at Kingston, September 14, 1665, where he 
remained until his death, July 14, 1667. He had three sons, 
Daniel, Charles and Richard. 

RICHARD BRODHEAD, son of Daniel, was twice mar* 
ried. By his first wife, who was a Miss Jansen, he had one 
child, who was named Daniel Brodhead. Daniel, son of Rich- 
ard, was born at Marbletown, N. Y., in 1693 ; married Hester 
Wyngart, of Albany, in 1730, moved to Pennsylvania in 1738, 
and settled at East Stroudsborg, upon land acquired some two 
years before from the proprietaries of the province, apparently 
for service rendered, comprising one thousand acres. It em* 
braced the present town of East Stroudsburg, and an addi- 
tional purchase of five hundred acres extended the area to 
Wallace's Mill Dam, on McMichael Creek. This property 
was known locally as the "Brodhead Manor," and the settle- 
ment at Dansbury, being in the several divisions of counties 
first in Bucks, then in Northampton, and now in Monroe. 
On September 25th, 1747, he was commissioned one of the 
Justices of the Peace for the portion of Bucks County north 
of the "Blue Hills," which he held for the rest of his life. 

DANIEL BRODHEAD died at Bethlehem (whither he 
had gone for medical treatment) on July 12nd, 1755. Some 
of his children were educated at Bethlehem. His son John was 
a pupil there in 1752. 

Fourth Generation — Children of Daniel Brodhead and Hes- 
ter Wyngert were Charles, who married Mary Oliver; Garrett, 
who married Jane Davis; Daniel, who married Elizabeth De- 
pui; John, who married Mary Davis; Thomas, who died at 
sea; Luke, who married Elizabeth Harrison, 1737-1806, and

The American founder of the Bronck family was Jonas, 
born in Copenhagen, Denmark. He came to America from 
Amsterdam, Holland, where he had married Antonia Slag- 
boom* He arrived here in 1639, having made the voyage in 
his own ship, called Fire of Tray, manned by himself, ac- 
companied by a friend who was an officer in the Danish army, 
Capt Joachiem Pietersen Kuyter. 

They each brought their family and a number of herds- 
men or farmers, as their cargo was cattle. Jonas was a man 
of means, as proved by the fact that he loaned large amounts 
to his friends. He acquired land north of the Great Kill, 
where he built a stone house covered with tiles, a barn, tobac- 
co-house and two barracks. He called his home "Emmans." 
Later he purchased from the Indians five hundred acres on 
the now Bronx River; this later was included in the Manor 
of Morrisania. Here he had a substantial house, servants, and 
cattle. He was a devoted Lutheran. Director Kieft appointed 
a meeting of the Indian Chiefs at his house, where a Treaty 
was made. Following the making of the Treaty, occurred the 
murder of an Indian ; whether by a white man or not was un- 
proved, but the Indians as a revenge for the murder slew some 
of the white men, Jonas Bronck among them. His property 
was saved. He possessed for that day an unusually good 

246 History of Corkklis Maessen Van Bubsh 

library of Latin and Danish books of Law, History and Divin- 
ity. His widow married Arent Curler, of Rensselaerswyck, 
whom she also survived; she died in Schenectady Dec 19, 
1676. The inventory of his property shows that he was pos- 
sessed of "2 Bibles, mirrors, napkins, extension table, 4 silver 
tankards, a silver cup, spoons, etc, etc" There is still exist- 
ing among his descendants a silver cup said to have belonged 
to Jonas, and it contains the family coat of arms, which is the 
same as on the windows of the old Dutch Church in Albany 
where his son Pieter worshiped. ' 

Pet$r Jonassen Bronck, son of Jonas, was born in Hol- 
land; died 1669, in Coxsaclde, N. Y. His wife was Hillitje 
Tyssenck ; they had sons, Pieter and Jan. Peter Jonassen was 
a brewer of Beverwyck. He owned houses and lots as early as 
1645, which he sold in 1662, after which he bought land in 
Coxsaclde (which was a Colonial grant known as the Bronck 
patent), Jan. 13, 1663, and it was confirmed as a Patent June 
xx, 1667. The patent is on file at the Secretary of State's of- 
fice in Albany (prior to the fire, the original could be seen

years old, while the brick part bears the date of 1738. Here 
was the old saw-mill which ground flour for the soldiers dur- 
ing the Revolution. In 1705 Jan Bronck received a patent for 
a tract of land from Queen Anne, the original of which is in 
the possession of Dr. Charles Alexander Rhodes, of New 
York. It is beautifully engrossed on sheepskin, and written in 
a fine hand, and is in a good state of preservation, although 
over 200 years old. 

The silver cup before referred to is in the possession of the 
referee in bankruptcy, R. Bronk Fish, Fultonvillc, N. Y.

The military record of the family gains in importance in 
each generation. Jan was a Lieutenant in 1709 and a Justice 
of the Peace of Albany County in 1738. Jan Leendertsen, 
fourth in descent from Jonas, married Elsie Van Buren, and 
established the rights of his descendants to all societies with 
early military claims by becoming Captain of Militia in 1740, 
and in 1770 was commissioned to that rank by Lieutenant- 
Governor Cadwalder Colden ; later he was promoted to the 
rank of Major of the nth Regiment, which was confirmed by 
the Provincial Congress. The sole male heir of Jan Leendert- 
sen, Leonard, was made First Lieutenant by the Convention 
of New York State in 1777, and in 1778 Gov. George Clinton 
gave him commission for same position. In 1793 he was a 
Major, and in 1796 he was a Lieutenant-Colonel. In 1786, 
1789-1792 he was a Representative in the Assembly. In 1796 
he was United States Senator from New York. On March 29, 
1790, he was appointed first Judge of the Court of Common 

Other members of the Bronk family took part in the dif- 
ferent wars as shown by the records of the French and Indian 

The Coat-of-Arms of Jonas Bronck is said by good au- 
thority to be that after which the coat-of-arms of New York 
State was modeled.

De Witt is one of the few Dutch-American names illus- 
trious in the Fatherland. Grand Pensioner Johannes De Witt 
administered the Government of Holland in 1652-1672. He 
and his brother Cornelia, also prominent in Civil and Military 
life in the Netherlands were killed by a mob at the Hague. 
Tjerck Classen was a kinsman of these brothers. Tjerck was 
m. in Reformed Dutch Church in New York, Apr. 24, 1656, 
to Barbara Andrissen of Amsterdam, Holland. 

In the Spring of 1657, he removed to Beverwyck, where he 
resided until Sept, 1660, when he exchanged his Beverwyck 
property with Madame De Huilter for land she held in Esopus 
(now Kingston), whither he removed. He was a magistrate 
of Ulster Co., 1689, and held other prominent offices. He d. 
Feb., 1701. His will, dated Mar. 4, 1687, gave to his daughter 
Rachel a twelfth of his whole estate, less £100, which rep- 
resented a sum he had previously advanced. A 'descendant 
of his, Maria De Witt, m. Capt James Clinton, afterwards 
General in the American Revolution Army, and their son 
De Witt Clinton was one of the most prominent, energetic and 
beloved Governors of New York State.

JACQUES and LOUIS DU BOIS were bora near La Bassee, 
in the Province of Artois, France. They are supposed to have 
been brothers. 

JACQUES DU BOIS was married in Leyden in April, 1663, 
from which place he came to this country in 1675. He died soon 
afterward, leaving three sons, Jacques, bora in Leyden in March, 
1665; John, b. in July, 1671, and Pierre (or Pieter), the an- 
cestor of the Dutchess County branch of the family, born at 
Leyden March 17, 1674. 

Peter grew up at Kingston, N. Y., and married Jannetje 
Burhams (daughter of Jan Burhams, of Brabant), October 12, 

One of his sons was named Christian, probably the same name 
as Peter's grandfather. Louis and Jacques Du Bois were Wal- 
loons. Their language was the old French dialect of Pkardy, 
one of the three sources of die pure French of his time. 

The surname Du Bois or rather du Bois, was an ancient 
family name in Artois and Normandy before William I of 
England left his native country. 

According to Viscount de Maguy, the head of the Heraldic 
College of France, in 1875, the family name "du Bois" is one 
of the very oldest in France and has more extensive marriage 
connections than any other. The prefix "du," a contraction 
of "de la" is admitted in France to be a badge of noble ex- 

Jacques Du Bois lived in this country only about one year. 
He was one of the twelve patentees of the Paltz in Ulster 
County, N. Y. 

PETER DU BOIS was the seventh son of Jacques Du 
Bois and Pierronne Bentyn. He was b. in Holland and bap. 
at Leyden, Mar. 18, 1674. He came with his father to "Wilt- 
wyck," now Kingston, N. Y«, when thirteen months old, where 
Louis Du Bois had arrived fifteen years before. His father 
Jacques died at Kingston about the year 1676. Peter m. 
Oct. 12, 1697, to Jannetje Burhams, of Brabant 

Eleven children were born of this marriage — seven sons 
and four daughters. Six of the children married. 

260 History of Mabssen Van Buben 

Peter Du Bois died Jan. 22, 1738, aged 63, and was buried 
in Fishkill Dutch Reformed Churchyard. 

In or about the year 1707 Peter moved to Dutchess County, 
where he bought a tract of land in the Town of Fishkill of 
Henry Beekman. The house, a one story stone house, with 
steep roof, about three and a half miles from Fishkill village, 
near Swartoutville, on Sprout Creek, still stands. 

Of his children there are named in his will Jonathan, to 
whom he gave a fang, and Abraham, to whom he gave the 
"Old Homestead." He had a son named Christian, who mar- 
ried Neeltje Van Vliet He died about 1786, leaving two 
daughters and one son.

266 History or Camm Maxsssn Van Bonn 


math according to the Swiss spelling was born in Switzer- 
land. He emigrated while a young man to America and took 
up his residence at Minisink in Orange Co. (now Port Jervis). 
Here the people of the associated churches of Mahackamack, 
Minisink, Walpack, and Smithfield took a special interest in 
him and sent him to Holland to complete his education and 
receive ordination. Returning he accepted the pastorate of 
these churches. An Indian massacre made him a fugitive. 
For ar time he was the pastor of the North Branch church. 

He then came to Qaverack where he received a joint call 
from the churches of Qaverack, Kinderhook, and Livingston 
Manor. "It stipulated to pay him first, the sum of forty 
pounds each or about 300 in all ; second, to provide him with 
a dwelling house 'becoming a preacher 9 with a kitchen, stable, 
etc, together with several acres of land for a garden, pasture, 
mow-ground, orchard, etc, which should be situated in 
Qaverack, the congregation of Qaverack to provide these 
things for their privilege of having the preacher dwelling 
among them. The other congregations to provide the preach* 
er with 'entertainment becoming his office* while laboring 
among them. Third, the three congregations to bear his 
expenses of moving each an equal share." Dotnine Fryenmoet 
took three months to consider this call and then accepted it. 
His ministry lasted in Qaverack until 1770, when he with- 
drew to confine his labors entirely to Schodack and Kinder- 
hook. He died about 1778 nearly 60 years of age He was 
interred under the Kinderhook church. He had a curious way 
of signing'his age after his name 

During his ministry the church of Qaverack was erected 
which is still standing. It was dedicated Nov. 8, 1767; the 
sermon was preached by Domine Fryenmoet The bricks 
were brought from Holland. It is a tradition of the Van 
Rensselaer family that they were carried to Albany and then 
down the Hudson by sloop to Hudson and by team out to 
Qaverack ; Dom. Fryenmoet's wife was Magdalena Van Etten, 
dau. of Jacob and Antje (Wcstbroeck) Van Etten; they had

JAN TYSSEN HOES, of Albany, N. Y., the Immigrant 
Ancestor of the Hoes family in America, was probably b. as 
early as 163a His first wife was Brechtje Mamus, wid. of 
Claes Corneliszen Van Voorhout, and his second wife was 
Christyntje Van Hoesen, dau. of Jan Franaa Hoesen, of Albany, 
and his wife Volkertje Jurriaens (Van Rensselaer Bowier, 
MSS.; pp. 734, 836* 845). 

Jan Tyssen Hoes; d. May 31, 1705, (See Calendar of 
Wills, N. Y.) He resided at Kinderhook and Albany, being one 
of the first Patentees of Kinderhook. In the early records the 
name of "Hoes" is spelled "Goes," the letter "G" in Dutch having 
the exact sound of "H" and the pronunciation of "Goes" being 
"Hoes." As the name soon came to be spelled in that way it 
has been deemed advisable to follow that form throughout 
this genealogy. (Van Deursen Genealogy).

Chaplain Hoes received his early education at the old King- 
ston Academy, entering Amherst College, in 1867, at the age 
of seventeen. 

After passing his freshman and sophomore years at that 
institution of .learning, he received honorable dismission and 
entered Princeton College, where he graduated in 1871. For 
the following year he taught a private class of young men, at 
Lambertville, N. J., and in the Fall of 1872, entered Princeton 
Theological Seminary, graduating in 1875. He was ordained 
July 1, 1875, and was pastor of die Mt Holly, N. J., Pres-

He then volunteered his services on the Greely Relief Ex- 
pedition, which offer was declined by the Secretary of the 
Navy, William EL Chandler.

Mr. Hoes, then travelled abroad for fourteen months, visit- 
ing Great Britian, the European Continent, Egypt, Tunis, Pal- 
estine, Syria, and Asia. 

He was stationed at the New York Navy Yard, 1887 to 
1889, when he was transferred to the Washington Navy Yard, 
remaining there until 1890. 

From 1890 to 1893 he was attached to the Flagship Pen- 
sacola, of the South Atlantic Squadron, visiting South Amer- 
ican countries and Hawaii. 

While they were at Honolulu, Chaplain Hoes' literary taste 
and ability found ways of service. He was instrumental in 
organizing the Hawaiian Historical Society and at the request 
of Queen Lililuokalani to Secretary of State Blaine, began 
the arrangement of the Government Archives and Bibliogra- 
phy of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Upon his return to the 
States he became Chaplain of the U. S. Naval Home, at 
Philadelphia, 1893 to 1894, and in 1894 was stationed at the 
Philadelphia Navy Yard, remaining there until June, 1897. 
From June, 1897, through Sept, 1898, he was attached to the 
U. S. Battleship Iowa, during the Spanish-American War. 
He was present at the bombardment of San Juan, Porto 
Rico, and all the operations against Santiago, including the 
battle with the Spanish Squadron. From September, 1898, 
to June, 1890, he was stationed at the Boston Navy Yard; 
during which time he was appointed Chaplain of the Ancient 
and Honorable Artillery Company, and preached its two hun- 
dredth and sixty-second annual sermon; also delivering the 
Decoration Day Oration at Tremont Temple, Boston, in 1900. 
From May, 1900, to May, 190a, he was attached to the Bat- 
tleship K ear sage, of the North Atlantic Squadron, and from 
May, 190a, to Feb., 1907, was stationed at the Washington 
Navy Yard. In March, 1907, he was transferred to the Navy 
Yard, at Norfolk, Va., where he remained until his retirement 
in Feb., 1912. 

On Mar. 19, 1897, he was promoted to the rank of Com- 
mander and to that of Captain on March 2, 1903. 

Mr. Hoes has also taken an active part in the field of 
literature and is an able genealogist He is the author of 
many printed sermons, orations, and various contributions to 

Allied Families 279 

the religious and secular press, historical and genealogical 
magazines. While stationed in Washington, D. G, he de- 
clined the Chair of Belles Lettres and English Literature in 
Columbia (now George Washington) University, in that city. 
He is a life member of the American Bible Society and the 
American Tract Society ; member of the New York Genealog- 
ical Society, of which he was the Corresponding Secretary 
for two years; Corresponding member of the New England 
Historic-Genealogical Society, the State Historical Societies 
of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, the Minisink His- 
torical Society; Newport Historical Society; Hawaiian His-

of Church History. He is a Charter Member of the Rhode 
Island Chapter of Colonial Wars; a member of the Hugue- 
not Society of America, the Holland Society of New York, 
and the Sons of the Revolution. 

One of his valuable contributions to genealogical work 
is his compilation of the bap. and mar. registers of the old 
Dutch Church at Kingston, N. Y., 1660 to 1810, containing

The name Hogeboom is derived from the Dutch words 
"hoog," meaning high and "boom" meaning tree, high tree, 
which may mean height or be merely a local name. In 1372, 
"S. Maes van Hoecbomme" is mentioned in the archives of 
Holland and the use of "van" meaning from indicates a name 
of local origin. Early traces of the family are found at The 

280 History of Cornilis Mamsbn Van Busbv 

Hague, Heiloo, Haarlem, Benscop, Nieuwenierop, and Am- 
sterdam. Occasionally in this country, one meets with the 
signature of Cornells Hoogeboom, lawyer and notary at the 
Singel in Amsterdam, who was born in 1635 and buried 
Sept x, 1684, *°n of Jan Cornelisz Hoogeboom, of Nieuwenie- 
rop, notary at Amsterdam, and Grietge, WitteboL Cornells 
mar. Aug. 31. 1659, Christina Geelvinck, born 1627 and buried 
Dec. 17. 1699, without issue. At the present time the name 
Hogeboom exists on the islands of Southern Holland and at 
Makkum in Friesland, a town noted for its manufacture of 
tiles. It is possible that Cornelia Pietersen Hogeboom, the 
tile and' brick maker of New Amsterdam and Kingston, was 
a native of that place. In this country the name first appears 
under the form of Hoogeboom or Hoogenbooin, which later 
became contracted to Hogeboom, its present form. 

Pieterson Hoogeboom were the first representatives of the 
family in New Netherlands. In X662, Jan Pietersze and Maria 
Hoogeboom joined the church at Brooklyn with letters from 
the town of Bunnick, of Holland. It was a peculiarity of 
some of the early ministers or clerks, in the case of husband 
and wife to write the husband's name with its patronymic and 
his family name following his wife's name. If this is true 
here, Jan Pietersze may have been a Hoogeboom and a 
brother of Cornelia and Mees. 

Cornells Pieterson Hoogeboom first appears at Fort 
Orange, (Albany), where on Oct. 17, 1656, Jurian the glazier 
(Jurian Teunisse Tappan) was brought to trial for assaulting 
and wounding him. In 1659 or earlier, Hoogeboom had 
formed a partnership with Jan Andriessen DeGraaf for the 
manufacture of brick at New Amsterdam. Hoogeboom's 
success was important because it rendered Manhattan inde- 
pendent of the brick supply from the neighboring plafces and 
the mother country. He last appears at New Amsterdam, in 
March, 1663. He returned to Albany, and on Jan. 2X, 1664, 
agreed with Gerrit Van Sclictenhorst to serve at the tile kiln 
from Jan.. until Nov. next or as long as the weather permits 
for 60 beavers and board. A year later he appears at Wilt- 
wyck, (Kingston) where he requests that he may be granted 

Allied Families 281 

a lot opposite the milldam for a brickyard. From time to time 
he added to his land. Aside from his land holdings he owned 
slaves, for on Oct 3, 1681, he sold Frederick Hussey a negro 
named "Pfunpldn" for 30 schepels of wheat* 

That he was a man of education is shown by the fact that 
on Oct 26, 1668, he asked permission "to keep evening school" 
and on Oct 23, 1671 he again requested to be appointed school- 
master and to have the village house, and lot rent free for 
the time of two years. The tile and brickmaker had become 
a teacher and finally in 1674, he was nominated for schepen, 

Of his first marriage and the birth or bap. of his son we 
have no record. He married the second time Annetie Corn- 
ells* Slecht (Sleight), dau. of Cornelia Barentsen Slecht and 
Tiyntje Tysse Bos, from Woerden, in the province of South 
Holland. She was a widow in 1719, when she made a will 

HOOGEBOOM, unlike his brother, the tile and brick maker, 
was a trader and operator of a vessel on the Hudson. 

He first appears in this country in 1657; on March aoth 
the sheriff of Albany called Meuwis Hoogeboom and others 
to account for playing at golf on the public prayer day. The 
case was put over, but as there is no later reference to fine 
or punishment the officer probably dismissed them with a 
warning. The incident is important as showing at what an 
early time golf was played in this country by the Dutch. 
During the interval from 1657 *° l &74 Mees Hoogeboom had 
advanced from a helper to a freighter with a vessel of his 
own. On January 21, 1678-79, Claes Van Patten sold him 
one-half of the yacht Royal Oak, now lying in Steevens 
Kil and on Aug. 6, 1679, the remaining half. In 1680 the 
Labidist brothers, Jasper Dankers and Peter Sluyter, while 
traveling through the country in search of an eligible site for 
a colony left in their diary this account of Skipper Hooge- 
boom: "On April 15th we went in search of a boat to go 
tot Albany and found one ready to leave immediately. The 
name of the skipper was Meus Hoogeboom, to whom we 
agreed to pay, for the passage up and down, one beaver, that 
is, 25 guilders in seewan, for each of us and find ourselves. 

282 Histoiy or CamuM Mam«h Van Bumf 

We gave him our names, to have them inserted to our pass- 
port. On Apr. 17th we went to inquire whether the boat 
waa going up the river to-day, but it could not be got ready. 
We left -New York about three o'clock in the afternoon of 
the 19th and at noon of the aand anchored at Fort Orange. 
We first thought of taking lodgings with our skipper, but had 
been warned that his bouse was unregulated and poorer kept; 
we were therefore entertained by Mr. Robert Sanders." On 
their return trip they write under date of Apr. 36th: "is soon 
as we arrived in Albany we went to oar skipper , Mens Hooge- 
. boom to inquire when he was going to the city. He said 
to-morrow, but he would come and notify us of the time. We 
saw it would run on a much longer time, as it usually does 
in these parts/* It was not until four days later that the 
Labadists were able to leave for New York. 

On Apr. i> 1684*. Mees waa ordered to move his yacht 
from, the city stockade and on May 6th he was arrested for 
contempt of court for not obeying the order^ June 31st, 
1684, he sold a yacht called Th* Royal Oak to Hendrick 
Abelse (Reddenhausen) and Nanning Harmense (VTsscher). 
Not only did Mees convey freight and passengers, but he also 
carried on a trade with the Indians. Aside from trading and 
freighting, Hogeboom was also a carpenter. ' Like his brother, 
Cornelia, Mees owned slaves. - On Feb. 7, 1693-4, Jan Marten- 
sen de Wever (Van Aelstyne) conveyed to if ees Hogeboom 
for £15 property described as being without the north gate, 
bounded west by the street to Rensselaer's mill, north the 
creek, east by the Marselis (Marsellus) property and south 
by the road to the river. It is known that Hoogeboom 
traded with the Indians at Half Moon (Waterford) and 
some time prior to 1700 settled there. On Oct. 4, 1700, the 
man who had begun life as a "knecht" or helper and later as a 
trader and an owner of a freighting vessel on the Hudson 
was elected to the office of assessor for the Half Moon. 

The family name of Mees 9 wife is not given, but in 1683 
both he and wife Catryn, as well as their daughters, Ariaantje 
and Geertruy, were enrolled as members of the Dutch Re- 
formed Church at Albany. He d. Feb. 15, 1702, and his wife 
in 1707. They left six children (having lost one in 1682),

According to an article by William Leggett Bramhall in 
Zabrialde's Claverack, the original ancestor of the Hogeboom 
family in America was one Killian, who brought his eldest 
son, Jeremiah, who was born in Holland, Apr. 5, 1712, with 
him. Killian settled in the town of Claverack, and here the 
younger son, Johannes, was b. Johannes m. Albertie Van 
Alen, dau. of Johannes and Sara Van Alen, of Kinderhook ; 
they had seven sons and four daughters: Johannes, Barthol- 
omew, Cornelia, Lawrence, Peter, Abraham, James, Johan- 
che, Heleche, Albertie and Catharine. 

JOHANNES HOGEBOOM afterward moved to the north- 
eastern part of the town, and settled on the site of the 
house subsequently built by his son, Lawrence. Here his 
sons settled around him. The daughters, Heleche and Cath- 
erine m. and moved to Schoharie County ; Johanche m. Judge 
Jeremiah Miller and resided in Claverack; Albertie m. Hon. 
Peter Van Ness and lived in Kinderhook on the place later 
occupied by Pres. Martin Van Buren, and called Linderwald. 
The oldest son, Johannes, m. Gertrude Miller, dau. of Stephen 
Miller, and had several children: Stephen, Albertie, Helletie, 
Polly, Sarah, John, Gertrude.

According to records copied from an old family Bible 
these two genealogies do not agree as to the original ances- 
tor; the list furnished to me is as follows: Johannes Hoge- 
boom, who m. Albertie Van Allen, was a son of Piter of 
Claverack, whom I suppose is the Pieter Mees who m. Jan* 
netje MuUer of Claverack; he was the son of Meus or Bar- 

Allied Families 285 

tholomew Hogeboom of Beverwyck, whose history is given 
in the beginning of this article, and who was a son of Pieter 
Hogeboom of Holland, as my list declares; if this is correct 
where does Killian, who is said to have been the father of 
Johannes who m. Albertie Van Allen, as given in both of 
these genealogies, come in? I leave it for each one to settle 
for him or her self.

Having lost their parents at an early age, Thomas and 
his sister, Elizabeth, were brought up by their grandparents, 
Judge and Mrs. Leonard Gansevoort, Jr. In 1818 Thomas 
entered the Albany Boys 9 Academy. When only 16, he 
entered the Junior class at Union College, from which he 
graduated in 1826 with honors and the degree, of B. A. 
Studied medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. He 
graduated as an M.D. in 1830. When the Cholera epidemic 

Allied Families 287 

broke out in Albany in 1832 a hospital was instituted and 
Dr. Thomas Hun was appointed one of the physicians. In 
the Spring of 1833 he went to Europe and but for two or 
three brief visits home he remained until 1839. Soon after 
his return he was elected Professor of Institutes of Medicine 
in the recently organized Medical College at Albany. His 
inaugural address is said to have aroused great enthusiasm 
because of its great breadth of learning and its liberality of 
thought In 1848, when the Albany Hospital was incorpor- 
ated, Dr. Huh was appointed one of the Consulting Phy- 
sicians. In 1858 his private practice having become so ex- 
tensive that he could not attend to his duties as a Professor, 
he resigned from the College. In 1862 he was President of 
the New York State Medical Society. Later he was Dean of 
the Albany Medical College. He was a devout Episcopalian.

Valley Families for much more of interest relating to Dr. 
Thomas Hun and his sons, Dr. Edward, Dr. Henry, Marcus 
Tullius, and Leonard Gansevoort 


The name is variously spelled Hughen, Huygh, Huyck. 
The family in Holland belonged to what are known as 
Burghers. They were entitled to Arms as follows: "The 
escutcheon in argent, a demi lion in sable; the helmet, tat 
patrician one; the crest a demi lion of sable; the mantling 
argent and sable/ 9 (Hudson and Mohawk Families). The 
first one to come to America was John, a son*of Hans; he 
came in company with Peter Menuit His ancestors as far 
back as the 16th Century had held positions of trust in Hol- 
land John had held the position of Chieftain of the Grod- 
strad Nynegan in Holland in 1617. In 1626 he took passage 
to America in a Dutch sailing vessel, called the Sea Gull, 
with % his brother-in-law, Peter Menuit John became the 
"koopman," or storekeeper of the Dutch West Indies Co. In 
the absence of a minister in the colony John became one of 
the comforters of the sick. When a minister arrived he was 
appointed a deacon of the church. He m. Lizabeth Peters,

ANDRIES HANSE HUYCK, son of Jan and Ltzabeth 
(Peters), owned a large estate at Kinderhook, obtained by 
Patent from James, Duke of York and son of King Charles 
the First of England, dated March 14, 1636. (Much of this 
tract is still in the possession of the family.) Andries was a

The Colonial Peckhams of the United States trace their 
descent from John Peckham, who returned from the Seige 
of Acre with Richard Coeur De Lion in '191 1. In England 
they have been an Anglo-Saxon family seated for an imme- 
morial period in Southwest Kent, chiefly in the neighborhood 
of Wrotham. Their principal seat was at Yaldam ,the Manor 
house of which is still standing; the Great Hall of which 
dates from the 14th Century. It was then occupied by Sir 
James Peckham, who was associated with Godfrey Chaucer 
on several royal commissions. Chaucer was no doubt enter- 
tained by James Peckham in the Great Hall at Yaldam. It 
is supposed that Sir James Peckham was the original of 
Chaucer's description of the Frankelyn in the Prologue to 
the Canterbury Tales. In the reign of Edward the Fourth 
William Peckham, Esq., was Cup-bearer to Arch Bishop 
Thomas Bourchier and later in the reigns of Henry the 
Seventh and Eighth the Yaldam Peckhams were members of 
Henry's court They were always in the Reformers 9 party. 
James Peckham in 1632 made a Will which was witnessed by 
Sir Thomas Wyatt the elder and Thomas Wyatt, his son, was 
given a bequest of a grey horse. This family of Peckhams 
were intimately associated with Wyatt's Rebellion and suf- 
fered severely in consequence. The elder son of James Peck- 
ham m. a niece of Arch Bishop Cranmer, but he escaped 
the disaster of Wyatt's Rebellion, having d. a few years be- 
fore it occurred. 

The family became extinct at Yaldam in the male line in 
1713, but a junior branch survived in Sussex from which 
John Peckham came, who was the Colonial ancestor of the 
American Peckhams. This John Peckham was chaplain to

the Duke of Somerset and as such m. Artabella Stuart The 
Duke of Somerset was one of the greatest courtiers of the 
reign of Charles the First 

John Peckham became a Lollard and emigrated to New 
England. He first appears in 1638 as one of those to whom 
land was alloted on the Island of Rhode Island. It is sup- 
posed that he came tp America with Sir Henry Vane and Dr. 
John Clarke. Sir Henry Vane was descended from William 
Peckham, the cup-bearer, whose dau. m. Henry Fane, the 
name afterward being changed to Vane. Sir Henry Vane's 
father was Comptroller of the Household of Charles the 
First and the sons no doubt met at court and were intimately 
acquainted. John Peckham m. a sister of Dr. John Clarice 
and did not return to England with Sir Henry Vane. 

His son William was the first Baptist minister ordained 
on this Continent He was the fourth pastor of the First 
Baptist Church of Newport R. I. v of which Dr. John Clarke 
had been the first 

The Peckhams of the United States have gradually emi- 
grated from Rhode Island until they are scattered all over 
the Continent The majority of them have been land owners 
and farmers. As a race they have been highly educated, 
many of them have been eminent lawyers and physicians and 
a few have been clergymen. * At the present time there are 
five Peckhams living who are, or have been, College Profes- 
sors. They are Prof. William C. Peckham of the Adelphi 
College, Brooklyn, N. Y. ; Profc George A. Peckham, of 
Hiram College, Hiram, Ohio ; Prof. George W. Peckham, of 
Milwaukee, Wisconsin ; Prof. Anna Brown Peckham of Den* 
ison University, Denison, Ohio, and Prot Stephen Farnum 
Peckham of Brooklyn, N. Y. 

The most eminent branch of the family are the so-celled 
New York Peckhams, of whom Judge Rufus W. Peckham, 
Sr., of the New York Court of Appeals was the representa- 
tive. His son, Rufus W. Peckham, Jr., succeeded his father 
on the bench of the Court of Appeals and while serving 
there was appointed one of the Associate Justices of the 
Supreme Court of the United States.

The descendants of John Peckham have been faithful and 
efficient soldiers of the Colonies and the United States from 
the French and Indian Wars of the 18th Century to the 
present time. None of them attained high rank, Major Peleg 
E. Peckham of the 7th Rhode Island Volunteers attaining 
the highest rank. Brigadier General Isaac P. Rodman of 
General Burnsides Staff was a son of Mary (Peckham) Rod- 
man. A large number of others bearing the name served 
. faithfully as privates and non-commissioned officers. 

Proi Stephen Farnum Peckham, who m. Dr. Harriett G 
Van Buren, is best known as a writer of authority on Bitu- 
mens, especially of petroleum and asphaltum. He is an 
authority on questions relating to street paving with bitu- 
mens. His scientific papers are widely quoted throughout 
the world. He is the author of the Peckham Genealogy and 
of various papers on early history of Rhode Island that have 
appeared in The Journal of American History. 


The first three generations of this family in America 
varied the spelling of their name as at the heading of this 
article. This family were entitled to a Coat-of-Arms, as fol- 
lows: Shield, a field of gold or saffron on which are placed 
three martlets of natural color, without beaks or feet, turned 
to the fore-part, one at the base of the shield, the other two 
at either side. Crest, a barred or tournament helmet adorned 
with a mantling of gold or saffron and black, on the top of 
which on a twisted wreath of ancient kings of the same color, 
between the two wings of yellow or gold is placed a martlett 
like those on the shield, but having feet and beak looking 
toward dexter side. (See Hudson and Mohawk Families) 

Johannes, b. in Holland, was the progenitor of the family 
in America; he had two sons, Francis and Jacques (Jaacs or

The spelling of this name has been varied, and has led 
to some confusion in tracing the various branches of the 
family. By some it is said to have been originally Kwakel- 
bosch, from Kwakd or, Quakord, meaning a quail and bosch, 
a forest The name appears once with the prefix of Van, 
which would mean of the quail-forest Another form is 
Quakkenbos, from quakken or quaken, which means to croak 
as a frog and bosch or bos, a bush; this would make the 
word to mean the quaking bush. 

Different branches seem to have adopted whatever form 
their fancy dictated, as these various forms are all found, 
Quaken, Qaucken, Kwakken, Kwaeken and Kwaklen, also 
Kwacklen, each with the termination bosch or boss or bos. 
Albany and New Brunswick families, also New Jersey pre- 

Allied Families 299 

fcrrcd Quackenbush. Kinderhook families used the form 
Quackenboss or Bosch. 

Pieter, the first to come to America, was here before 1688; 
m. Martje — . He was a brickmaker and owned a kiln and 
yard at Albany . He m. in Holland. Their dan., Maritje, was the 
wife of Marten Van Buren, son of Cornells, the original ancestor 
of that family in America. Adrian, m. 1699, Catharine Van 

Anthony, b. 1717; m. Anna Vosburgh. 
Maria, b. 1753; m. 1776, John D. Hoes, who was b. 1754. 
(See Hoes 9 record and Van Buren.) This couple were die 
parents of Hannah Hoes, the wife of Martin Van Buren, 
the President 
. It is a source of regret that there is no Genealogy of this 
family published, as it has been impossible to determine the 
line of descent of a number of this name who intermarried 
with the Van Burens. 


The American ancestor, Albert Heymans, landed in New 
Amsterdam April, 1660. He came in the ship Spotted Caw % 
as found in Documentary History of New York, in VoL 3, 
p. 56. Albert Heymans was an agriculturist from Gelder- 
land ; his wife was Wyntie Allard or Aliens. They brought 
with them eight children. They settled in Esopus district 
at Wiltwyck, now known as Kingston. 

He was a man of wealth for those days, bringing consid- 
erable property from Holland, and he speedily "Occupied an 
influential position in the new settlement" Albert Heymans 
Roose, Evert Pels, and Cornelia Barnetsen Slecht were ap- 
pointed the first three Schepens or Magistrates for Kingston. 

In 1661 Roosa was one of three commissioners to enclose 
the new village at the Esopus called Hurley. At the destruc- 
tion of Hurley, June 7, 1663, by the Indians two of Roosa's 
children with 43 others, women and children were taken cap- 
tive. Roosa is cited as a leader and director of events in the 
early history of the Esopus. Roosa was prominent in a riot 
in 1667 and was with others sentenced to banishment, but 
Governor Francis Lovelace restored him to favor and in 


1669 appointed him and Louis Da Bois two of the Overseers 
for Hurley. In 1673 h* wu confirmed as one of the officers 
at Esopus by Governor Anthony Colve and described as 
"Capt Albert Heymans, who had been prominent in the riot 
of 1667." . His name appears with others in the petition to 
Sir Edmund Andros, Governor of New York, praying he 
would assist them in procuring a minister for Esopus, "that 
can preach bothe Inglish and Dutche, which will bee most 
fitting for this place, it being in its minority." He served 
in the military forces as mustering officer and Apr. 5, 1670, 
at a military rendezvous at Marbletown he served as Sergeant 
of Captain Henry Pawling's Company, and in 1673 he was 
Captain of a Company recruited from Hurley and Marble- 
town. He d. at Hurley Feb. 27, 1679. His widow secured 
a grant of yao acres of land at Hurley. Children:

Alliid Families 303 


This family was established in the Mohawk Valley by 
one Jacob Jansen (son of Jan) ; he was b. in 1623 in Water- 
ford, Holland; in 1654 his father was a resident of Amster- 
dam, Holland, and perhaps it was from there he came to 
America. He d. in Schenectady in 1689. He came to Bever- 
wyck and became a prosperous Indian trader and a brewer. 
The story is told that in 1648 he transgressed the law by 
selling arms and ammunition to the Indians. He was tried 
by order of Governor Stuyvesant and sentenced to banish- 
ment for five years and the confiscation of all his property; 
several noted citizens interested themselves in his behalf 
and succeeded in having the banishment clause annulled, 
but the property confiscation was carried out It is further 
stated that later on he turned the tables by sending a com- 
plaint against Stuyvesant to the States General. (Hudson 
and Mohawk Families.) 

His Will, made May ao, 1688, devised property valued 
at StMtea guilders ($23,000) showing that he must have 
acquired the right to possess property after the satisfaction 
of his sentence and also that he poss es s ed great ability to 
have acquired such vast possessions, as his fortune was ex- 
ceeded only by those of a few Patroons or men of high official 
rank. He m. Jannetje Segers, a dau. of Cornelius Segerse

widow of Hulmer Otten, by whom the had. had a dan. Trentjc 
Otten, for whom special arrangements and contracts at the time 
of the second marriage were made to safe guard her interests 
as he had property in Holland and America. 

Ryer settled in Schenectady and was one of the five patentees 
of the patent granted in 1684. 1° I 7°° he was the sole survivor 
of the original owners of the township, so saving a few forms, the 
80,000 acres o£ Schenectady came under the control of Ryer. 
This one man power became distasteful to the people who peti- 
tioned for and gained a new Charter which gave them the power 
of choosing five trustees for a term of three years. 

Ryer nevertheless held the fort stubbornly, by right of the 
first Charter, which had not yet expired. The conflict lasted for 
over one hundred years and was finally settled by the New York 
Legislature which gave power into the hands of the Mayor, Alder* 
man, and Commonality of Schenectady, Mar. 26, 1797. 

In 1690, Ryer was a member of the Provincial Assembly from 
Albany County, and a Justice of the peace. 

In 1700, he was appointed assistant to Judge of Court of 
Common Appeals. He had mills at Schuylersburg. He was a 
man of unusual ability, of firm will, undaunted courage and great 
power of endurance. His will was made Apr. 5, 1717 ; be d. Feb.

There were numerous intermarriages of this large and in- 
fluential family with that of the Van Burens, but it has been 
impossible for the Editor to obtain from members of the family 
now living such data as would make possible such a history of 
this family as she desired. 



According to the records in Holland, the family can be traced 
under different names to the crowning of "Otho" A. D. 936. The 
family first aooears in the name of Ralsko which it abandoned 
to take that of Wartenberg, which it bore for several centuries. 
Jean Ralsko, who d. in Flanders, in 1236, built the Chateau de 
Waldstein, a name which he took to distinguish himself from his 
brother who bore the name of Wartenberg. 

The family has been traced under the name of Balstein, in 
Spain, Vallenstem, in France, Halsteyn, in Flanders, and Van 
Alstein, in Holland.

From Waldstem, the name changed to Wallenstein, Walstein, 
Valstem, and finally to Van Alstein. In the early records in 
America, the name appears as Van Aelstyne, Van Aalsteyn, Van 
Alstyn, Van Alstein, Van Alstyne, and Van Alstine; at present 
there are three ways of spelling current among the descendants, 
Van Alstine, Van Alstyne, and Van Alstyn. 

The family possessed two well known characteristics, 'Trust 
in God and persevering industry.* 1 In Flanders they were loyal 
to the church of Rome. In Holland, to the Reformation of Luth- 
er, and later history illustrates the measure and courage of their 
convictions as to their true meaning of Religion and its proper 
method of administration. 

In America the family are self-reliant in thought and action 
as are those who remained in the Fatherland Independent 
in Politics, and Religion, making good citizens, ready defenders 
of home, and country of adoption. None of them are very rich 
nor very poor. 

The direct ancestor of the American family was in New Am- 
sterdam as early as 1646. His wife was Dirckeje Harmense. 
He had sons, Marten, Abraham, Lambert, Isaac, and perhaps 

JAN MARTENSEN VAN ALSTYNE, and his wife, Dirck- 
en Hermanse, had a son, Marten, bap. at New York, July 18, 
1655. Jan was known as "de Wever" or the weaver, and in 1657 
was living at Albany where he owned a house and lot. In 1663 
and 1667 he patented land at Kingston, and in 1664 was a tenant 
of Vokkert, Jansz, and Jan Thomasz, upon Island Schodack. 
(Van Rensselaer Bowier Manuscripts, p. 826). In 1671 he bought 
a farm back of Kinderhook, where he and his wife resided in 
167& He <L there 1698. 

In 1697, Jan de Weaver was a resident in "Renselaerswyck or 
the Colonic" with two children and no women in his family.

Major Peter Van Alstyne lived in stirring times. He was 
just in the prime of manhood when the Revolution broke out, 
and he became a leader among the tones of Columbia County. 
He was soon a marked man for his opinions, and early in 1776, 
was made a prisoner, with sixteen others and kept confined for 
sixteen days. Early in 1777, he was obliged to flee from his 
home to Canada, and joined General Burgqyne in Sept, 1777, 
leaving his wife and three children at Kinderhook. In 1778 he 
returned to New York, and wrote his wife to join him in that 
city. While there he served as Captain of Battcaux men, and 
afterwards as Major of Associated Loyalists. He did duty at 
Smithtown, Long Island, was pensioned on half pay as Captain* 
His estate was sequestered, and on Dec 13, 1779, h** wife peti- 
tioned Governor Clinton for passports for herself and children 
to join her husband in New York where he then was. This was 
granted, and die journey was made in three "slays," containing 
herself, three children, a negro boy of eleven years, and such wear- 
ing apparel and household goods as she had been able to save, 
(Clinton papers, vol, 5, pp. 418, 419). In Sept 1783, Major Van 
Alstyne conducted the party of disbanded Loyalists and their 
friends to Canada. They left New York in a ship guarded by 
the British brig Hop*, which accompanied them into the St 
Lawrence. They wintered at Sorel, on the St Lawrence, and 
ascended the river in open boats die following Spring. They 
reached Adolphustown, on the bay of Quinte, June 14, 1784, and

there they settled on land granted them by the British government 
Major Van Alstyne owned lots 26 and 27 of this township and 
acquired other property as the years passed on. He was one of 
the first magistrates appointed, and in this capacity received ac- 
knowledgments of claims of the Loyalists for their property con- 
fiscated in the State during the Revolution, which were investi- 
gated by special Commissioners appointed by the Government 
He was Captain of the Fourth Town (Adolphustown) Company 
of Militia, and Commissioner for supplying the inhabitants with 

In 1792, he was elected a member of die Legislature for Len- 
nox and Prince Edward Counties. As Magistrate he solemnised 
many of the early marriages in the new settlement before die com- 
ing of the Rev. William Losee, their first minister. He is also 
said to have built the first grist mill at Glenora across the bay from 
Adolphustown. (See CannifFa Settlement of Upper Canada;

According to the Genealogy of the Van Deursen family re- 
cently published by the Allaben Genealogy Co., to which I am 
indebted for many of the items referring to the intermarriages 
of the Vail Burins and Van Deusens, this family have a very 
honorable and ancient ancestry : "The ancient home of the Van 
Deunen family is at present a small village of 407 inhabitants, 
called Deurne-les (near) Diest, in the South Netherlands (Bel- 
gian) Province, Brabandt" 

The earliest inhabitants of die county adjacent were a Celtic 
tribe, the Beiges. The name Deursen itself keeps the memory 
of thete early Celts alive. The word "Dur" means "water," of 
which "Deursen" is a locative form, "a place by the water." "In 
1 196, during the time of the third crusade, we find mentioned 
a Hendricus 4 Doersne (H end rick van Doersen)." "It is not un- 

326 History of Corn *us Mabssin Van Buibk 

likely that he was in the crusade and that the cross in the Coat-of- 
Arms was taken up by him." "During the next, the thirteenth 
century, members of the family are frequently found in the 
'meyery van's Hertogen-bosch' (the majorate of Boise-le-Duc), 
the part of Brabant in which Deursen lies and where the lords 
of Van Deusen kept up a kind of sovereign independency until 
the year: of 1325." "On the 1st of March, 1325, Govert Van 
Doorsen acknowledged for his leige-lord, Jan. 3, the noblest 
duke Brabant ever had." "Govert Van Doorsen received bade 
his ancestral property immediately in 1325 as a her edi t a r y feudal- 
ity and it thus remained in the male line until the end of the 
16th century." 

"Under Jan the Third's daughter, Duchess Johanna, who died 
in December, 1406, Jan Van Deursen, possibly the grandsoa or 
great-grandson of Govert became lord of Deursen. He married 
in 1419, Aleid van Bloemensweerde, and from this time on there 
is no break in the family line down to Abraham Pietersen van 
Deursen of 1607, and through him down to the American pos- 

"So far as can be ascertained the following is the line of 

JAN, who m. Aleid van Bloemensweerde. Their son, ~ 

JAN, m. Aleid van Dbmpsdaer; bad a son, 

JAN, who m. Wilelmina van Zoudenbalg, their son, 

NICOLAS, who m. Machtdd Proeys, their son, x " 

JAN WIT J.EM, who m. a dau. of Gerritt van Heusden, their 

JAN, who m. Elisabeth Van Heusden. This Jan was alive 
in 1550; his son was 

HENDRICK, who was b. in the old Castle. He Is supposed 
to have been the first Protestant in the family. His wife was 
Maria Rutgers; their son, 

WILLEM, who m. Elisabeth Gysberts, and bad a son, - 

PIETER, who moved from Asperen to the Province of Hol- 
land in 1581 and became Magistrate in Haarlem in 1583; his son, 

ABRAHAM was b. in Haarlem and bap. there Nov. n, 1607, 
He m. Dec. 9, 1629, Tryntje Melchiors, also of Haarlem, and 
soon after emigrated to America. They had six children."

"It is probable that Abraham Pietersen and his. wife left Haar- 
lem for America very soon after their m. as no baptismal records 
of any of their children are found at that place between 1630 
and 1635, a °d he ** known to have been in New Amsterdam, 
now New York, in 1636, when he was recorded as 'of Haarlem.' " 
There is a great deal of interesting matter relating to Abraham 
in the Van Deursen book, but space will not permit me to copy 
more, and I refer the reader to that most interesting book. Hie 
names of their children were as follows: 

Tettwis (Matthew), b. about 1631; m. about 1653, Helena 
Robberts; it is from this couple that those who m. Van 
Burens are descended.

Teuwis Abrahamsen Van Deursen early removed to Bever- 
wyck (Albany), where he was granted a lot Oct 28, 1658. In 
1667 he removed to Claverack. 

Munsell and Talcott both state, however, that he lived at 
Albany until 170a On June 26, 1677, he deeded a house and 
lot to Paulus Martensen Van Benthuysen, die property being 
afterwards transferred by Van Benthuysen to Harme Jansen 
Lyndrayer. The following is an extract of the latter deed:

The name of Abraham Pietersen Vosburgh appears in 
the records as a settler in the colony of Rensselaerswyck as 
early as Aug., 1649; beginning with Easter in 165 1, he paid 
rent to the Patroon of 16 florins a year for a house lot, north 
of the Pitroon's house. In the "Oath to the Patroon, taken 
by all the householders and free men of the Colonie, Nov. 
23, 1651," we find .among the names Abraham Pietersze Voa- 
burg. On Apr. 15, 1652, he was given permission by the 
Court to continue building his house, notwithstanding the 
location. On the same day Abraham Pietersen Vosburgh 
and Derrick Jannsen were appointed surveyors of buildings; 
they were sworn two days later. The duties of Abraham 
Pietersen Vosburgh as surveyor of buildings also appear to 

354 History or Cobnelts Maissbm Van Bubin 

have included the surveying of land. He held this office up 
to 1654 and probably later. He was by trade a carpenter, 
and he contracted with the authorities to build the first 
bridges at Beverwyck. 

Mar. 17, 1654, a warrant was issued to the treasurer "in 
favor of Abraham* Pietersen Vosburgh, carpenter, to the 
amount qf aoo florins, for building two bridges." Through 
his occupation as carpenter and bridge builder, Abraham 
Pietersen Vosburgh became a sawmill operator and owner. 
Hans Jansz Enchiuys or Hans Jansz from Rotterdam, con* 
ducted several sawmills in the colony. On Sept 30, 1656, 
they obtained a lease of the water power on the creek south 
of the farm of Jan Barentsen Wemp. The lease commenced 
Jan. 1, 1657, and ran for six successive years ; rent, zoo guild- 
ers or 100 good merchantable boards and two pair of fowls 
each year. A condition of the lease was that the lessees were 
not to sell liquor to the Indians. A sawmill was erected on 
the creek which was later known as Wynant*s Kit Hans 
Jansz was more or less a silent partner, at least his name never 
appears again in the records of this enterprise. On Jan. *)> 
1657, Abraham Pietersen Vosburgh proposed to sell his house 
and lot in Beverwyck to the highest bidder. The lot was 10 
rods deep and 4 rods wide; it was next to Thomas Clabborfs 
(Chambers) lot- This paper is imperfect and unexecuted and 
there is no evidence that sale was made; but it is important 
as it shows that Thomas Chambers was his neighbor, this 
being the Thomas Chambers who was one of the early set- 
tlers of Esopus (Wiltwyck or Kingston). 

The last events of Abraham Pietersen Vosburgh's life are 
found in the history of Esopus. Due to the fact of the In- 
dians having been given liquor, a serious disturbance devel- 
oped and an Indian was killed ; they attacked the settlers and 
thirteen were taken as prisoners by the Indians, among whom 
was "a carpenter, Abraham by name." This occurred on Sun- 
day, Sept 21, 1659, which date is taken as the date of his 
death as it is not known how soon thereafter he was killed. 
Although Abraham Pietersen Vosburgh met his death in the 
prime of manhood, probably under forty years of age, his 
widow, Geertruy Pieterse, a sister of Barent Pietersen

Coeymans, the miller of Norman's Kil, reared his three sons 
who became the progenitors of the thousands who bear the 
name of Vosburgh. Much interesting material can be found 
relating to her in the history of Fort Orange or Albany. 
The children of Abraham Pietersen Vosburgh and his wife 
Geertruy Pieterse Coeymans were as follows : 

Pieter, b. about 1652 ; m. Jannetje Barentse. 

Jacob, b. about 1654; d. 1732; m. Dorothea Janse Van

bany, Annetje Jans Goes. 

Abraham, b. about 1660; doubtful, as there are no records 
concerning him. 

of Abraham Pietersen, was the last to have children and is 
the progenitor of the smallest branch of the family. He m. 
Jannetje Barentse, dau. of Barent Meyntersen and his wife 
Eytje; the marriage took place as early as 1689 and prob- 
ably before 1683. 

Pieter made his will before he had any children. There 
is no record of its probate. On Dec 9, 1676, a lease is re- 
corded from Louwrens Van Alen to Pieter Vosburgh for 
five Morgans of land at Kinderhook (a Morgan was two 
acres), and also a piece called the Achterland (rear tract) 
in the Groot Stuck; the lease ran for sixty years, commenc- 
ing from Aug., 1676. 

He was one of the grantees of the Kinderhook Patent, 
receiving six allotments. On July 6, 1713, Pieter Vosburgh, 
Johannis Van Alen and Pieter Van Buren obtained from 
Jesina Gardenier and her husband Evert Wheeler "the water 
Course of a Certain Kil or Creek, called or known by the 
name of Valleties kill, for them to Erect and build a Saw mill 
thereon, above the bridge which leads to Pompoenick from 
groot Stuck." This land was at Valatie. 

Pieter Vosburgh was sworn in on May 27, 1691, as one 
of the Justices of Albany city and county. He held court at 

356 History of Caunus Maessen Vak Buixn 

* - 

Kinderhook ; according to the records, he held this office until 
1696 and probably later. On June 8, 1703, a certificate of the 
election of Pieter Vosburgh, Lambert Jansen and Pieter Vcr- 
slyke as Trustees of the town of Kinderhook was filed at 
Albany. He held this office until 2707 and probably later. 
He was elected an Elder of the Kinderhook Church in 1716. 
The last time his name appears in the records is among the 
freeholders and inhabitants of the Kinderhook, in the year 
of 1730; at this time he was about seventy years old. No 
record of his death has-been found. Children:

have been the first of the second generation to have married 
and his eldest son, Abraham, was thus the first grandchild 
of Abraham Pietersen and Geertruy Vosburgh. 

Jacob set up an establishment for himself when he leased 
from Louwrens Van Alen, on May 7, 1678, at Kinderhook, 
a farm and one-half of an island occupied by Pieter Moree. 
The lease ran for six years. The homestead, which con- 
sisted of a house, barn and two haystacks, was surrounded 
by a fence, valued at 31 whole merchantable beaverskins at 
8 guilders the piece. 

His name was affixed to the lease as Jacob' Abrahamse 
Vosburgh and his mark, made by himself, appears as I. A. 
V. B. This lease fixes approximately the date of his marriage 
to Dorothea Janse Van Alstyne. 

From 1677 *° I 68a, a number of unimportant suits appear 
in the court records. On Aug. 6, 1683, he contributed to the 
support of the new minister at Albany, Dominie Godfridus 
Dellius, "one and one half pieces of eight." On the con- 
tribution list his name appears just below that of his mother, 
another proof of his early marriage and indicating that he 
was the head of a family. 

Allied Families 357 

On July 16, 1 68 1, he bought from Marten Cornelisen Vas, 
"a bouwery at Kinderhook," consisting of the one-fourth part 
of the Groote Stuck, containing a house and barn and also 
the plow and harrow on the premises. 

On Jan. 4, 1681, he appeared in court at Albany and took 
the oath of Constable of Kinderhook, for one year or until 
further orders. He held this office until May 5, 1685, when 
he was relieved from the duties, with the thanks of the Court 
for his services. This is the last time his name appears in 
the Albany records in connection with Kinderhook. He was 
one of the grantees of the Kinderhook Patent, but no record 
can be found of the transfer of the several allotments made 
to him. At some time between 1685 and 1697, be removed 
to Livingston Manor, where he was one of the first settlers. 
His house appears upon a map of Livingston Manor made on 
the 20th day of Oct., 1714, by John Beatty, deputy surveyor. 
It was situated on the bank of Roeloff Jansen's kil, about 
five or six miles southeast of the manor house. 

Jacob Vosburgh was listed among the inhabitants of 
Dutchess County, in the census of 1714. Four of his sons, 
Abraham, Jan, Dirk, and Marten, were all members of the 
Independent Company of the Manor of Livingston, as it was 
mustered at the Manor House on Nov. 30, 171 5. 

On July 4, 1722, he was elected one of the Elders of the 
Linlithgo Church and was installed the following day; he 
held this office until his death. On Oct. 15, 1732, Coenrat 
Ham was installed as an Elder there "in the place of the de- 
ceased Jacob Vosburgh/' Thus approximately is established 
the date of his death; he was about eighty years of age at 
the time. He was the progenitor of the largest branch of 
the Vosburgh family. In the early generations his descen- 
dants remained principally near where he settled; that is, on 
Livingston Manor and in upper Dutchess County. 

As before stated, he married Dorothea Janse Van Al- 
styne, dau. of Jan Martensen de Wever and Derckien Her- 
mans*, his wife. Children :

ISAAC VOSBURGH, the youngest of the three brothers, 
was b. about 1658. He is the progenitor of a large branch 
of the family, a restless branch, strongly characterized with 
the pioneer instincts. His descendants within two genera* 
tiona were found in Massachusetts, Connecticut; Vermont, 
the Mohawk Valley and the Province of Quebec The Al- 
bany and Coxsaclde members of the family originate through 
line. Isaac first appears in the Albany court records 
still a minor. On Sept 5, 1676, his brother Pieter sued 
Jan Thysen Goes, for an assault upon Isaac, committed in 
Pieter's barn. The wife of Jan Thysen saw Isaac chasing 
her husband's cows; she told Jan Thysen, whereupon he 
jumped over the fence and according to his own testimony, 
admitted that he had hit the lad (Isaac) once. It appeared 
in the testimony that the fence was in bad condition and that 
Jan Thysen's cows were on the Vosburgh land at the time 
that Isaac was chasing them. Goes was fined for the assault 
and also he had to pay the costs of the action. 

Before his marriage Isaac lived with his brother Pieter 
on the homestead farm on the "Groot Stuck." One of the 
provisions of Pieter's will, made in 1690 was that his "brother 
Isak shall have half of the land of the farm at the Kinderhook, 
situated on the Grote Stuck, provided he pay half of what 
is still due on account of the farm."

On Aug. i, 1686, the first banns were pronounced at Al- 
bany of the marriage of Isaac Vosburgh and Annatje Jans 
Goes, dau. of Jan Thysen Goes, mentioned above. On Apr. 
a» 1713* Pieter sold to Isaac a part of the land on Kinderhook 
Creek, at Pomponick, and Isaac also bought adjoining land 
from Dirck Wessels Ten Broeck, which he shortly sold to 
Abraham Van Alstyne. There is no record of Isaac's owning 
land before 1713. The names of Isaac and Pieter Vosburgh 
appear in the several lists of the inhabitants of Kinderhook. 

Isaac was a private in Capt. Abraham Van Alstyne's com- 
pany, according to the muster roll, dated Sept. 17, 1715. 

Isaac Vosburgh lived probably to the advanced age of 
105 years, and died at Kinderhook about 1760-65. The Bal- 
ance and Columbian Repository was a weekly paper published 
at Hudson, N. Y. In its early numbers appears a very in- 
teresting serial article entitled: "Notes on the Natural His- 
tory of Kinderhook." In the part of this serial published on 
Feb. 9, 1802, in Vol. I, No. 6, the author mentions that one 
of the characteristics of the town is the longevity of the in- 
habitants and cites the following instances : "Isaac Vosburgh, 
of this place was 105 years of age when he died ; Eliza Vos- 
burgh was 93; another woman of the same name was 95." 
This article was written before 1802. A careful analysis of 
all the known Isaacs in the Vosburgh family leaves only two 
that the article can refer to. I do not hesitate to affirm that 
it is almost a certainty that the Isaac written of here is the 
subject of this sketch. As before stated, Isaac was b. about 
1658; d. about 1760-65; m. Aug. 1, 1686, at Albany, Annetje

WILLIAM WILLIAMS, the ancestor of the Columbia 
County family, came with his two sons from Wales. It is not 
known just the year they came, but they were here at the 
time of the outbreak of the last French war, as it is known 
that the father, William Williams, enlisted in the Colonial 
service. As he never returned, it is supposed that he was lost 
in the bloody defeat of the ill-fated forces of Braddock in his 
attack on Fort Duquesne. 

Of the two sons, David settled in Schoharie County. 
Aaron m. Mary Lampman, a sister of Peter Lampman. He

leased and cleared a new farm a little East of Copake Lake. 
He built a small house consisting of only one room and a loft 
with no floor but the ground, but in this house he reared a. 
family of twelve children and they and their descendants have 
always borne an honorable part in the history of that part 
of Columbia County. The names of the children were: Wil- 
liam; Elizabeth; Casperas; David; Peter; Nelly; Cornelius; 
Henry; Lannah; Clary; Hannah, and John. It is from the
