Samuel Demarest is the 8th great-grandfather of Joan Sholl Francis.
"Samuel Demarest was b. 1656, at Mannheim, and m. ab. 1678, Maria, dr. of Simon De Ruine, who survived him. He d. in 1728.
His sons who reached manhood, were: David, b. 1681, (Mattie Debaun); Samuel, (Annetie van Hoorn);
Peter, (Margaret Herring); Simon, b. 1699, (Vrouwtie Herring); and his drs. were Magdalena, b. 1680, (Cornelius Banta); Jacomina, (Samuel Helling and Cornelius van Hoorn); Judith, (Christian Debaun and Peter Dune); Sarah, (John Westervelt); Rachel, (Jacobus Peek); Susanna, b. 1703, (Benjamin van Buskirk). To most of these Samuel assigned portions of his lands before his d. We cannot extend these interesting details, so far, we believe, entirely reliable; but invite some one to fill out the genealogical lines, which, in 1820, were said to embrace seven thousand names!"
