      From "The History of Kingston, New York", by Mariu s Schoonmaker, 1881:
      "Hendrick Jochemsen Schoonmaker was a native of Hamburg, in Germany. The
      precise time of his arrival in this country is not known, bu t he came in
      the military service of the Dutch West India Company, and was li eutenant
      'in the company of his noble Honor the Director General.' It is cer tain
      that he was there as early as the year 1654, for there is a record of hi s
      advance of money in that year to Governor Stuyvesant 'in time of need'.
      H e was an innholder at Fort Orange, and acquired the title to
      considerable rea l estate. He owned, besides other lots, a lot on the
      east corner of what is now Broadway and State Street. In the fall of
      1659 his company was ordered t o Esopus for the defence of the settlers in
      their troubles with the Indians. He was there in 1660, and at the
      expiration of his enlistment he settled at Esopus. A short time
      afterward, in 1662, when the burghers organized a compa ny of militia at
      Esopus, he was appointed lieutenant under Thomas Chambers as captain.
      Hendrick Jochemsen married Elsie Janse, daughter of Jan Janse Breest ede
      and widow of Adriaen Petersen Van Alcmaer. He died about 1681, and his
      widow, September 26th, 1684, married Cornelis Barentsen Slecht.
      Hendrick left four children, Jochem Hendrick, Egbert, Engetje, and

      From "Scandinavian Immig rants in New York", by John O. Evjen, 1972, page
      212 (from the chapter on Dan ish immigrants):
      "Elsje Jans, from 'Breestede' (Bredstedt), a daughter of Jans Jansen and
      Engeltje Jan van Breestede, came with her parents to New Netherla nd in
      1636. She was married, on May 17, 1643, to Adriaen Pietersen van Alcma r,
      widower of Grietje Pietersen.
      The Council minutes of that period tell us how Adriaen wooed and won her
      as his wife. It appears that Elsje was in the service of Cornelis Melyn
      of Staten Island. She left the service before her term had expired, in
      order to marry Adriaen. Melyn was much displeased at th is, and brought
      suit against Egbert Woutersen, her stepfather, 'husband and g uardian of
      Engel Jan, her mother', for damages on account of Elsje's marriage
      Elsje appeared in court on September 11, 1642, and testified th at 'her
      mother and another woman had brought a young man to Staten Island.' She
      claimed she had never seen him before. They desired that she should
      ma rry him. She declined at first, but finally consented. 'She concluded
      her t estimony by returning in court the pocket-handkerchief she had
      received as a marriage present.'
      Five days later she made the declaration that she sent for Adriaen
      Pietersen, and that on his coming to Staten Island she accompanied hi m on
      board his yawl.
      A week later, Melyn and the Fiscal had Pietersen before the court,
      charged with Elsje's abduction. Pieterson was ordered to bring h er into
      court, deliver her to Melyn, and receive her again from him 'on givin g
      security for the payment of the damage Melyn may have suffered.' [New
      Yor k G&B Record, VII, p.117]
      After the death of Adriaen Pietersen, Elsje married Hendricksen
      Jochemsen, of Esopus. After his death she married Cornelis Baren tsen
      Slecht (Sleght), who was in New Amsterdam in 1662, and at Wiltwyck
      (Es opus) in 1664."

      From "The Early History of Kingston & Ulster County", by Marc Fried:
      "On Th ursday, June 7, 1663, between eleven and twelve o'clock, when
      nearly all the men were at work in the fields, a large number of Indians
      began entering Wild wyck from different points, in bands, dispersing among
      the dwellings in a see mingly friendly manner, under pretense of bartering
      a little maize and some b eans. The visitors had been in Wildwyck about a
      quarter of an hour when some people on horseback rushed through the mill
