PREFACE. 

C^ S time rolls on changes take place that we never dreamed of. To- 
^^ day family history and tradition are the prevailing topics. Realiz- 
ing the family of Lents to be a large and patriotic one, the 
author and publisher of this work attempted to collect information on the 
Lent family. After about seven years or more of hard work, entailing 
a large expense collecting the necessary information — both biographical 
and genealogical — to warrant the publication of a work of this kind, it is now 
submitted to the reader for his criticism. The family is one of the most 
widely extended in the United States. This fact made the preparation of 
the work very difficult. This being the first Lent family history ever got- 
ten up, made it a still greater undertaking, but " where there's a will there's 
a way." So after working diligently and energetically, tired often, dis- 
couraged at times, we kept at it. Finally the information came in rapidly, 
and this gave us new vigor, and at last we came off victor. 

Several persons had undertaken to publish a book of the Lent Family, 
but after a time they gave it up. It was too hard an undertaking — the 
work covering the very long period of two hundred and sixty-five years. 

As we perused the time-worn leaves from the old records, an impres- 
sion was left upon our minds that can never be forgotten. To know the 
hand that rocked the cradle of our ancestors, handled the pen that wrote 
the signature some two hundred years ago ! Some of the names in Dutch 
had to be interpreted, while others were clear and plain in English. If 
our forefathers could but arise from their long slumbering places of abode, 
and know the great multitude that have lived since their time, they would 
be amazed. 

The name was originally " Ryck Abrahamson," who took the name of 
" van Lent." The van signifying of or from the land of Lent in Holland. 



4 The Lent Family 

This name van Lent was retained by some of the family until the last cen- 
tury, when it was finally dropped, and they used the plain name " Lent." 
We find also one or two who spell their name with the final *' e" — Lente. 
The letter was placed there for reasons not known. The last and only one 
who spells his name " Lente " is the Rev. James Rapelye Lente, a retired 
Protestant Dutch Reformed minister residing at Washingtonville, N. Y. 

There may be errors in the book, but we trust not many, as we have 
been very careful to have it as accurate as possible. If errors are found 
we wish you would send them to the publisher, so that he can make a 
record of them, in case he should issue another edition. 

We trust the book will get into the hands of all the family of Lents, 
especially here represented, as we think it will be invaluable to them in 
the way of making known their family lines, &c. 

Outside of the Lent family we wish to thank Mr. E. M. Ruttenber, the 
historian ; Mr. Samuel Ritchie, Mr. Frank S. Hull, Mr. Hiram Lozier and 
Darwin W. Esmond, Esq., of Newburgh, N. Y., and Rev. Mr. Force, of 
Montrose, N. Y., and Franklin Couch, Esq., of Peekskill, N. Y., for valu- 
able assistance given us. 

To you, one and all of the family, we are indebted for the valuable as- 
sistance rendered in the compilation of this work, and my kindliest thanks 

are extended.

THE LENT FAMILY. 



--^^*<^ 



CAPTAIN JACOB SIMONS De RYCK, a wealthy corn merchant of 
Amsterdam, Holland, was the sen of Melchoir de Ryck. His father, 
Jacob de Ryck, was the father of Abraham de Ryck, who emigrated to 
the United States in the year 1638. He received in that year an allotment of 
land from Governor Kieft, for which he afterwards took out a patent, dated 
August 8, 1640. He died in 1689, leaving his farm by will to his son Abraham. 
He married Gertie, daughter of Hendrick Hermansen. Children : 

1. Ryck Abrahamson, born in 1637. 

2. Jacob, born in 1640. Died la infancy. 

3. Jacob, born in 1643, assisted his brothers in the purchase of " Ryck's 

Patent," now part of Cortlandtown, Westchester County, N. V. 

4. Hendrick, born in 1646. Died in infancy. 

5. Mary, bom in 1649, m. Sybout H. Krankheyt, of the Manor of Courtlandt. 

6. John, born in 1651. Married Margaret, dau. Jacobus Krankheyt. 

7. Aletta, born in 1653, m. Capt. John Harmansen, of the Manor of Courtlandt. 

8. Abraham, born in 1655. Died about 1690. 

9. Hendrick, born 1662, m. Catharina \/i*r^\ 

Because of some connection with an old noble family of Brunswick, bearing 
the name of " Lent," or perhaps, some portion of their family had resided in a 
place called " Lent " in Holland, it is said, the same was adopted (quite custom- 
ary in those days), is a probable reason, as in old records it is found written 
" Hendrick van Lent," &c. The Dutch " van" signifying "0/" or "from." 

Riker, in his "Annals of Newtown," says : "This family is of common origin, 
(descendants from one family), with the preceding one being descended from 
Ryck and Hendrick, the eldest and youngest sons of Abraham Rycken, who, for 
some reason not clearly ascertained, removed their own cognomen, and assumed 
that of " Lent." And there is also reason for the belief, that it was their mater- 



>i

nal grandfather who came from Lent, and that he is the person intended in a 
letter to Governor Stuyvesant in 1654, from his superiors in Holland, where allu- 
sion is made to one " Hendrick Hermansen van Lent," a soldier sent to Curacoa, 
but who was not to be found there. 

A tradition exists, that their ancestors located at a very early period, at what 
was called the " Poor Bowery," (Bouwerij, Dutch farm) and purchased from the 
natives a large tract of land at that place. That having previously been an armourer 
in the Dutch service, he was accustomed to forge tomahawks for the Indians 
around about him, but that on a certain occasion, the savages, under a sudden ex- 
citement, assaulted him and one of them gave him a fatal blow, and terminated 
his life with one of the very instruments of death that he had made for him ; that 
after this his widow re-married and the property was disposed of to the Dutch 
Church. 

Hendrick Hermansen, the original proprietor of the farm mentioned, had a 
daughter and she married Abraham Rycken. 

Again it is said, the Rikers or Ryck's-Lents and Krankheyts were of common 
origin in Germany, and located at a very remote period in Lower Saxony, where 
they enjoyed a state of allodial independence, at that day regarded as constituting 
nobility. They there possessed the estate or Manor of Rycken, from which they 
took their name then written "van Rycken," indicating its terminal derivation. 
" Hans van Rycken, the Lord of the Manor and a valiant Knight, with his cou- 
sin, Melchoir van Rycken, who Hved in Holland, took part in the first crusade to 
the Holy Land in 1096, heading eight hundred crusaders in the army of ' Walter 
the Penniless.'" Melchoir Hved to return, but Hans perished in that ill-fated 
expedition. In time the descendants of Melchoir van Rycken extended them- 
selves from Holland to the region of the Rhine and into Switzerland. 

A tradition, which has been handed down from generation to generation by 
the Lents, as true, is as follows : " The ship left Amsterdam, Holland, May, 
1640, and arrived at New Amsterdam (New York), August, 1640. Peekskill, 
when first known to the Dutch, was inhabited by a tribe or clan of Delaware or 
Lenape Indians, and they called the place " Sachoes." The Dutch first called 
the place " Peak's-kill," from one of their early navigators, Jan Peak, who with 
his vessel was on his way to join the upper settlement. Fort Orange (Albany), and 
mistaking the channel ran his vessel on a sand-bar at a very high tide. That 
when the tide fell away the ship was almost on dry land, and it was impossible to 



The Lent Family 7 

get the vessel off without discharging the cargo. This they feared to do on ac- 
count of the Indians who came around the vessel in their canoes in large num- 
bers, but appeared to be very peaceable and not disposed to do any harm. They 
brought with them many things to eat, and by signs offered them to those on 
board the vessel, and very soon a trade was begun by both parties. Soon by 
signs which appeared friendly, two from the vessel's company volunteered to go 
on shore, the Indians coming around them in great numbers. One or two who 
had been out to the vessel, presented them to their chief, who with great dignity 
received them very kindly. When the boat returned to the vessel the Indians al- 
most loaded the boat with such as they themselves had to eat. Thus a friendship 
was established between the Dutch and the Indians, which looked to all coming 
time, and by the assistance of the Indians the Dutch moved their goods on shore 
and began the settlement of the place. 

The place was Roe-ya-hook, and the Indian village was on and near the land 
now occupied as a military parade ground, known as the " State Camp." It was 
there the white man first placed his feet and on that ground the settlement began 
and in perfect peace with the Indians. By the help of the Indians they began to 
build themselves houses, and were always careful to deal justly, truthfully and 
honestly with the Indians, giving them an equivalent for their services rendered. 

The Dutch soon learned the Indian language and the settlement increased. 
The Indians proposed to sell the Dutch a tract of land especially for the use of 
the settlement, and July lo, 1641, a council was held and the chiefs of other clan 
united and an agreement was made and the boundary of the land designated. It 
lay east of Annsville Creek, taking the land east and south of where Peekskill is 
located. April, 1643, the Dutch paid for their land in goods as follows : 8 guns, 
9 blankets, 5 coats, 14 fathoms of daffel cloth, 14 kettles, 40 fathoms of black 
cloth, 40 fathoms of white wampum cloth, 2 anchors of rum, 5 half vats of strong 
beer, 6 earthen jugs, 12 shirts, 50 pounds of powder, 30 bars of lead, 18 hatchets, 
18 hoes, 14 knives, i small coat, 6 fathoms of strong water cloth, 6 pairs of stock- 
ings and 6 tobacco boxes. For the above the Indians sold them seven thousand 
two hundred acres of land, and on this land the Dutch lived in peace and harmony 

with the Indians. 

Richard Abrahamson afterwards took the name of " van Lent," and became 

the principal owner of this vast tract of land— eighteen hundred acres. The 

family became numerous in this vicinity, and from here they went out and settled 



8 The Lent Family 

throughout the country and even into Canada and Nova Scotia. The Lents at 
this period were in the midst of the red men of the forest, and wars were waged on 
all sides by the Indians, the French and afterwards with Great Britain. It is very 
evident that they Hved friendly with their surrounding natives, as no records are 
found that any trouble ever arose between them. 

In after years the title of this land was made good to the settlement by the 
government of England, giving a charter grant and patent which was called Ryck's 
Patent, (Richard Patent in Dutch), so called after Richard Abrahamsen, the prin- 
cipal patentee, who later assumed the English name of " Lent." Substantially 
the tract passed to Hercules Lent, Richard's son, about 1730. Three hundred 
^ acres of this land fronting on the inner and upper part of Peekskill Bay, was deeded 
< to Jacobus De Kay, April 25th, for the value of 400 guilders, which ultimately be- 
^ came the property of John Kronkhyte, the ancestor of the Cronkhites. Ryck's 
'^ Patent remained a separate political division for representation in the Assembly 
until divided into township by the New York State Act of 1788. 

After many years there came a time for a division of this land, and Hercules 
Lent (no) purchased eighteen hundred acres of this land, paying ^^150 ($750), 
on which this branch of the Lent family have lived from the first settlement down 
to the prenent time, dividing and dividing until there is left but sixteen acres oc- 
cupied by Harlan Luther Lent, a great-great-grandchild. This property has 
never been out of the ownership of the family. 

I. RYCK (RICHARD) ABRAHAMSON van LENT, born in New Amster- 
dam (New York City) in 1637, and was christened in the old Dutch Church in 
the Fort, now the Battery, was the eldest son of Abram Rycken, and adopted the 
name of " van Lent." He married (Tryntje) Catrina, daughter of Harck Sybout- 
sen. They became the early members of the old Dutch Church (Sleepy Hollow) 
at Tarrytown, N. Y. Children : 

10. Elizabeth, born 1672, m. Thomas Heyert (Hyatt). 

11. Abraham, born March 10, 1674. Died February 5, 1746. 

12. Ryck, born 1678. Died 

13. Harck (Hercules), born 1681. Died in 1766. 

14. Margaret, born about 1683, m. Thomas Bensen. 

15. Katharine, born about 1685, m. Joseph Jones. 

Ryck (Richard) van Lent, with his two brothers, Jacob and Hendrick, settled 
in the Manor of Courtlandt, and became sole owners of Ryck's Patent. This

Patent passed by purchase to Hercules Van Lent (13), as appears by a certain 
release, the first bearing date April 20, 1715 : " Whereas, Jacob Abramsen, of ye 
Upper Yonkers, one of the original patentees, for the consideration of ^150, con- 
firms Hercules van Lent, yeomanry, in all his right, title and interest in ye pat- 
ent, called ' Ryck Abramsen's Patent.'" He was an Elder in the Dutch (Sleepy 
Hollow) Church, at Tarrytown, N. Y., and was very much respected. 

Ryck's (Richard) Patent covered a large partion of the northern half of the 
Town of Cortlandt, between Verplanck's Point and Peekskill Creek, purchased by 
Richard Abrahamson, Jacob Abrahamson, Teunis De Kay, Sybout Harche, Jacob 
Harche and Samuel De Kay, of New York, from the * Sachoes Indians, through , 
Lieutenant-Governor Thomas Dongan, in the reign of King James II, in 1684. 

The Indian " village " of this tribe was located at the southernmost part of the 
present site of the beautiful city of Peekskill, Westchester County, N, Y,, and 
commonly known as "Lent's Flats." The Chief of this tribe in the year 1682, 
was " Sirham," Southwest of this at Verplanck's Point, were the Meahagh In- 
dians, and still further south bordering on the Croton River, were the Kitchiwangs, 
and it is said that they were all great hunters and fishermen. North of this was 
the sub-tribe, from which this land-grant of 1,800 acres is a portion of the 7,200 
acres purchased from these Indians in 1641, 

A private road passing through this property from the old Post Road on the 
south, running in a northeasterly direction at a point that is now Washington 
Street, was the scene of several incidents in connection with the Revolutionary 

* Sachus, Sachoes and Sackonck, are given as names of Peekskill (correctly Peake's- 
kil), and Magregaries as the name of the stream, though it actually belongs to a stream 
south of Peekskill, as per map of 1776. Sachus and Sachoes are equivalent, and are of 
record as the name of a resident sachem, meaning " black kettle " from Suckeu " black " 
and hoos, " kettle." Magrigaries is an orthography of Macgreory's, from Hugh Mac- 
gregory or MacGregorie, the holder of patented lands subsequently included in Van 
Courtlandt's Manor. The Indian name of the stream is noted in deed of 1695, " called by 
the Indians Paquintuk, and by the Christians Jan Peake's Creek." Paquintuk is an 
equivalent of Pokqueuntuk, and described "a broad, open place in a tidal river or 
estuary." Presumably Peekskill Bay. Sackonck is not the same as Sachoes, or Sach- 
us. The first word is from the same root Suckeu, "black," but the second, Onck, 
stands for "land or place" — Suck'iaug, Suckiauke, Suck'onck. The clan or Indian 
family in occupation here were known as the " Kitchawongs,"a name written in several 
orthographies, which was given them from the name of Croton River, at some point 
east of the Hudson. It describes " strong or rapid water," and is usually met in appli- 
cation to streams which rise in the highlands and flow down rapidly descending slopes. 
The final " j " in the name is an European plural and does not belong to the original. 
Its general meaning is "people " or " tribe." — E. M. Ruttenbbr.

War. This road was a short cut toward Yorktown, and was used by the British 
frequently. It is said that on one occasion the " Red Coats " were in hot pursuit 
of the Continental soldiers, and the Americans thinking that they would be cap- 
tured, turned in this road and with their wagons drawn by oxen, drove into a pond 
of water at the west called " Lents' Pond," and threw their baggage, trunks, &c., 
into this pond. 

On another occasion the British were after the Americans up this road, and 
when at the top of the hill going toward the woods, and about where the present 
Washington Street crosses, the " Red Coats " were at their heels, and one of the 
" Johnnies " on his horse, struck at one of the American soldiers with his sword, 
just glanced his head and cut off one of the buttons from his coat, but thinking that 
the Americans were in large numbers a short distance in the woods, retreated. 
Many other incidents are told by the older Lents who have passed on the " other 
side," to whom the author used to listen with deep interest, and they were delighted 
in relating them. This road passed through a portion of the property of 
Louis Lent and Hercules Lent, brothers, in 1856. At present there is very little 
of it observable — all closed up. Harlan Luther Lent, son of Hercules Lent, oc- 
cupies a small portion of the original Patent, and has an outlet on Washington 
Street.

ii The Lent Family 

The Lents were very numerous in the Continental Army. They voluntarily 
took up arms and fought bravely to free themselves from the yoke of thralldom to 
Great Britain. Sir Henry Clinton said that he could neither " buy nor conquer 
these Dutchmen." This is true, as the proof has been evident in all the genera- 
tions past. They are and always have been a very devout, conscientious, loyal 
Christian class of people — they love the Word of God — it was their daily meat. 

II. ABRAHAM van LENT, born March lo, 1674, was the eldest son of 
Ryck (i) Abrahamson van Lent and his wife Catrina. He was a Deacon in the 
Dutch Church (Sleepy Hollow), at Tarrytown, N. Y., and retired August 28, 1724. 
He married Anna Catherine, daughter of Adolph Meyer, from Ulfen in Westholia, 
in 1698, (born, 1677), who settled in Harlem. She died July 21, 1762. Children :

the act for shutting up the Port of Boston, without declaring our abhorence of 
measures so unconstitutional and fraught with destruction. 

" By the 7th resolution Colonel Abraham Lent was made Chairman of a com-

ment to New York. He thereby proposes to send a Captain and set of officers 
for a Minute Company, and requests an explanation of the order, which he ap- 
pears to have misunderstood. 

" A draft of an answer to Col. Lent was read and approved of and is in these 
words : ' Sir — We received yours of yesterday and have only to observe, that only 
a lieutenant's party was to be taken from your Regiment, and as for your Minute 
Men, we would remind you, that there can be no such thing, unless a company is 
regularly formed. Therefore, advise you to send down with all convenient speed 
the thirty-five men wrote for with a First Lieutenant and Ensign with non-com- 
missioned officers in the same proportion. We are, &c.,

"August I, 1776, I 'listed as a private soldier (but did duty as clerk) in Col. 
Jacobus Swarthout's Regiment in Gen. Geo. Clinton's Brigade for 5 months' ser- 
vice under command of Stephen Duryea, Capt. 

" We marched from Fishkill, Dutchess County, and now State of New York, 
to Kingsbridge, and there was stationed until the retreat of our army from Long 
Island, then ordered to White Plains and was at the battle that was fought there 
by Gen. McDugal. After the Btitish left there, we were ordered to Peekskill, 
and from thence to Fort Constitution, and remained there until my term was out, 
which was the last day of December, 1776. Then returned home. 

"Jan., 1777, received an appointment as Ensign in the standing army under 
Thos. Lee, Capt., John Larnce, Lieut., and was in the expedition of Gen. Heath 
to Fort Independence, near Kingsbridge, which appointment I resigned in March 
following (1777) and accepted appointment of First Lieutenant under Hendrick 
Wycliff, Capt. 

" Jacobus Skutt, 2d Lieut, in a detachment to consist of 200 men, command- 
ed by Morice Place, Major, to guard the forts in the Highlands, viz : Fort Mont- 
gomery and Fort Constitution, which service commenced the first day of April, 
1777, and ended the last of July, being four months, and being dismissed, returned 
home the ist of August, 

" Some time after Gen. Gates came on to go and take the command of the 
Northern Army, Col. Hughes made application to Col. Derict Brinckerhoff for a 
guard to go with him to Albany, and there being eight of us who had no com- 
mand at that time, I, among the rest, volunteered and went with him to Albany, 
and after our return home the British came up the North River and Capt. Dor- 
land and myself joined a detachment of Col. Derict Brinckerhoff's Regiment of 
Militia, commanded by Major Swarthout and marched to Peekskill to join Gen. 
Putnam, to prevent the enemy from landing on this side of the river. But when 
Fort Montgomery was taken the whole of his regiment turned out and we remain- 
ed with them in service until the enemy left the river and returned to New York, 
which was some time in November. In 1778, when the fort was building at West 
Point, I went as a First Lieutenant with the militia to assist in building it, and 
continued there six weeks by relieving other officers of same grade.

ated on the Old Post Road, and known as the "Abraham Hilliker Farm," at 
Buchanan, N. Y. He was the son of Daniel (365) and Catherine (Brown) Lent. 
Mr. Lent comes from a long-lived and patriotic lineage. His father was a 
Captain of the United States Army of the war of 181 2, and his grand-father, 
Hendrick Lent, was a brave soldier of the Revolution. He had httle chance for 
education. He had to work from his youth, as most boys did in those early days. 
After living for several years in the house where he was born, his parents removed 
up the road, opposite the Alexander Muirhead house, now owned by Mr. Amos 
O. Lent. In the Winter of 1826, when but ten years of age, he removed with 
his parents to Orange, N. J. There were no railroads in those days, and they 
crossed the river in a sleigh, on the ice and thence across Rockland County to 
their new home. About fifteen years of his life were spent in New Jersey. 
While there he did odd chores, worked on a brickyard and wheeled bricks and 
finally learned the trade of house-carpenter and builder, which he has always fol- 
lowed, either alone or in partnership. In 1841 he removed to Peekskill, N. Y., 
and with his wife and two unmarried daughters, Susan M. and Mary Louise, re- 



THE HUDSON RIVER. 

426. BY E. A. LENT. 



TTT is a charming valley where 
1^ The lordly Hudson flows ; 
Green, terraced hills are set about; 

The cool wind comes and goes; 
The meadows spread their emerald slopes 

Down to the river's edge, 
And, in between, the rocks jut out 

In many a seamy ledge. 

And, here and there, adown the hills, 

A rippling streamlet sings 
A song that has no need of words 

To tell of pleasant things; 
Of grottoes in the far, dim woods ; 

Of pools, moss-rimmed and deep. 
From whose embrace the little rills 

In daring venture creep. 



It floweth deep and strong and wide— 

This river of romance. 
Along whose banks, on moonlit nights, 

The Highland fairies dance; 
And if the watcher will but look 

The glass of fancy through. 
He'll see a phantom Indian skim 

The waves with birch canoe. 

The traffic of a world goes up 

And down the river's breast. 
And either bank upbears a track 

That binds the East and West; 
Lighthouses guard the rocky points; 

The Beacon towers high. 
To mark the place where watch-fires burned 

To warn when foes were nigh .

a large freeholder in Ryck's Patent, which he inherited from his father. Where 
the Peekskill depot of the Hudson River Railroad is now located, was a part of 
the river front. The houses in that vicinity at that period were very few and 
scattering. His farm house was located on the highway, on the south side, just 
at the break of the hill. The Revolutionary soldiers in passing through here, 
took many advantages and committed their dastardly looting, and on three dif- 
ferent occasions destroyed his personal property, which the following, in his own 
handwriting, will show. It is presumed all this took place while he was in the 
field shouldering his musket to help free the country, as he is recorded as having 
enlisted in the War of the Revolution, in the Lme :

grand-son James, that my son John, have one hundred feet front adjoining the 
brick-yard aforesaid, and on the north side thereof, and the length one hundred 
and fifty feet back, and all the personal property, such as horses, cows, hogs, 
sheep and every other kind of personal property, excepting household goods, and 
one good milch cow, I will to my son Abraham, (and the one good milch cow 
before excepted), I will to my son John, his heirs and assigns forever. And I 
will and bequeath that the above said household goods I will and order that they 
be equally divided between my daughters. I will and order that likewise the saw 
mill be equally shared and occupied between my sons Abraham and John and 
their heirs, during the continuance of the said mill, and all the remaining part of 
my farm being east of the brook above mentioned, I will and order that it be 
equally divided between my sons Abraham and John, and to be disposed of in the 
same form and manner as is there directed to my landed property on the east 
side of the highway before mentioned, and to my loving wife, " Chrechy," I will 
and order that she have the full privilege of my present habitation, as far the laws 
of this State established, and likewise the full privilege, direction and advantage 
of my live stock, and also all other personal property during her remaining my 
widow, and my negro boy, Joseph, I will and order that he remain with my 
loving wife, to be at her pleasure and direction during her remaining my widow, 
and 

" Lastly — I do hereby nominate, constitute and appoint David M. Hyatt, and

homestead on Bowery Bay. The quaint dwelling was among the first erected, with 
uncouth illustrations of Scripture in Holland tiles. "To this day," says Mr. Lente, 
" I feel the cultural effects of that Bay, with its ever changing moods and manners, 
Hke a living, sparkling thing. But oh, the searching climate of Winter and Spnng, 
it went to the marrow of my bones, and is there yet." His house was headquarters 
for ministers, and the numerous " agents " then in vogue. Among the ministers 
were Rev. Dr. John Scudder, a stalwart man every way, and ancestored of all the 
Missionary Scudders. His two sons, Joseph and Samuel, were Mr. Lente's 
classmates in the Seminary. 

Not having strength enough for farm work, Mr. Lente began a course ot 
study with Rev. G. J. Garretson, pastor of Reformed Church, of Newtown, L. I., 
prepared for college at Erasmus Hall, Flatbush, L. I., and entered Sophomore 
Class of Rutgers' College, September, 1839. After graduation in 1842, without 
special honors, but with, perhaps, the average standing of the Class, instead of 
entering on a seminary course with most of the class — among whom were two of 
the four Talmage brothers — selected teaching, and opened a Classical School in 
the Village of Newtown, and afterward was assistant to Rev. R. D. Van Kleek, 
at Erasmus Hall, Flatbush, Long Island. He entered the Seminary at New 
Brunswick, N. J., in the Fall of 1847 ; graduated in 1850; ordained by North 
Classis of Long Island in Fall of same year, and accepted invitation of Reformed 
Church, of Coxsackie Landing, N. Y., to supply their pulpit for four months fol- 
lowing January i, in absence of the pastor, Rev. S. M. Woodbridge, for health in 
Florida. 

December, 1851, he was pastor of Reformed Church, at Napanoch, N. Y. 
Health failing, he retired in the Fall of 1854. After a year's rest he took the 
pastorate of Collegiate Church of Rosendale and Bloomingdale, Ulster County, 
N. Y. After passing through a long siege of illness, both to himself and child, 
Edward Prime, which told on his nervous system, he resigned and was declared 
" Emeritus " by Classis. In the Spring of 1864 he removed with his family to 
the quiet village of Washingtonville, Orange County, N. Y. Here he supplied 
churches as offered him at different times. Blooming Grove and Bethlehem and 
others as desired. Here he resides with his son, and has resumed his old manner 
of life. 

Mr. Lente married Catherine, daughter of Col. John White, of Scotchtown, 
Orange County, N. Y., the ceremony being performed by Rev, E. D. G, Prime,

DUTCH CHURCH, MONTROSE, N. Y. 

The old Dutch Church on opposite page, obtained its charter from the Synod 
of New York. The first meeting-house was built on Montross' Point, on the 
King's highway, between Verplanck's Point and Crugers. The Church owned a 
large parsonage there and erected a building for worship. People began to settle 
on the " post road," a short distance to the east, and it was thought best to 
change the location of their meeting-house, and the church voted to buy land and 
erect a new and larger building, which they did, locating it where it now stands, 
on an elevation of about 25 feet above the road-bed, on the west side of the 
" post road," a short distance from the Montrose depot of the New York 
Central and Hudson River Railroad. To the south on the same grounds adjoin- 
ing the church, (Cedar Hill Cemetery) stretches the greenness of God's acre, 
where the founders of this church are gathered to their last long repose. Here 
lie their ashes. Most if not all of their descendants are dead or have removed 
to distant points. The people still worship in this old church regularly. The first 
entry made on the records of the church was June 3, 1729, Abraham Lent as 
Deacon. The following lines of the poet are appropriate : 



" I've worshipped there for many a year— 
Although at last my steps were slow, 

The old church where we praised the Lord 
From whom all blessin's flow ! 

I jest can't help the heartbeat— the mist that's 

roun' my eyes— 
For there I read my title clear to mansions in 

the skies : 
An' there, in years that had their tears, I fovind 

salvation free — 
And know that sweet, amazin' grace that 

saved a wretch like me. 

I knowed the " amen corner "—I knowed the 
"anxious seat "— 



An' when the organ shook the walls, or died 

in music sweet, 
Like a little child a-dreamin', I closed my old 

eyes there, 
An' my soul went up to heaven on the wings 

of love an' prayer. 

There was sweetest consolation in the holy, 

heavenly calm 
That led us into Gilead, where we found the 

healin' balm. 
'Twas there we glimpsed the beauty of a better, 

brighter sky. 
That bent o'er Canaan's happy land, where our 

possessions lie."

* A gentleman of the Lent family speaking of this place, his dignity being touched, 
expressing his feeling, says : " This Church is situated in a locality made pitiably fa- 
mous by Irving's unjustifiable caricatures, and a sturdy community well worthy of 
dignified and humble treatment. Intended, perhaps, only for pleasantry, this un- 
called-for misrepresentation has done much to preserve the historic salutary influence of 
the Holland emigrants. They never stole Indian lands ; never waged a King Phillips' 
war ; never seized Indians and sold ship loads into West Indies slavery, nor had any 
hand in the spoHation of Acadia."

*From the Spring of 17S2, to August, 1783, troops were encamped upon " Fishkill 
Plain," near the village of that name. The most convenient landing place on the east 
bank of the Hudson was upon a long, low point of land, formed to the north of the 
mouth of Fishkill Creek, known as " Presquile," and here, according to the tradition of 
the locality, under two large oak trees, George Washington always mounted and dis- 
mounted his horse as he started to and returned from the camp. One of these trees was 
blown to the ground on the loth of August, 1881 ; the other one still stands. The story 
of Washington's connection with these two oaks seems to be abundantly substantiated. 
The Commander-in-Chief was often accompanied on these excursions from his head- 
quarters at Newburgh to the Camp at Fishkill, by his Adjutant-General, William Den- 
ning, whose son, also William Denning, at that time fourteen years of age, was some, 
times allowed to join the party. The incident of the period made impressions upon the 
boy, not easily effaced ; and many years later, in 1822, after a life of travel and adven- 
ture, he returned to the Hudson and purchased from a member of the Verplanck family 
the point of land and the old oaks, still associated in his mind with the Commander-in- 
Chief of the American army, and the first President of the United States. The daugh- 
ter of William Denning (2d) still lives, and until 1S90 inhabited the old mansion built on 
" Presquile" in 1S13. To her we are mdebted for these facts, and her life and that of 
her father span the years which separate us from the days of Washmgton and the 
Colonial army.
