Johannes Westfall

My gr. gr. gr. gr. gr. gr. grandfather was Johannes Juriaen Westfall born in 1660 in Foxhall Manor, Ulster City, New York. He died about 1725 in Minisink, Orange County, New York. He was the son of Juriaen and Maritje (Hansen Van Nordstrand) Westfall, the first of our Westfall family to immigrate to America. He married Marritje Jacobsen Kool (or Cool) January 28, 1682 or 1683 in Kingston, New York. She was baptized 7 Mar 1666 in Kingston, Ulster, New York. She had three older brothers, Symen, Barent (who died young), and Barent, and another brother, Arent, who was probably her twin. She was the daughter of Jacob Barenson and Marritje (Simons) Kool.

In 1696 Johannes and 18 others including his brothers Symen, Nicholas, and his widowed sister Rymerick Quick bought land from the Minsi Indians along the Delaware River near the New York/New Jersey line. The land lies principally in Deerpark Township, Orange County, New York. Johannes was among those who obtained a deed from a group of Native Americans for land in the Minisink area. This land is believed to be located in between the present-day cities of Westbrookville and Port Jervis, Orange County, New York. The peaceful Minsi Indians were one of the three tribes of the Lenni Lenape people. About 1699 Johannes and his family moved to what was called the Minisink settlement. They were among the first white people to live in the area. Johannes oldest son Jurian and his friend Jacob Kuykendall hunted and trapped with the Minsi Indians as youths, and later traded with them. Jurian married Jacob's sister Styntie Kuykendall and Jacob married Jurian's sister Sara westfall. They raised their families and farmed there in the Minisink Valley along the Delaware River at peace with the Indians for many years. Jurian had the first apple orchard in the area, and Jacob established the first trading post. Three of Jurian's sisters married into the Dutch Kuykendall family.

Johannes and Marretje (Kool) Westfall had 13 children-Jurian George Westfall, Maretje Maria Westfall, Rebecca Westfall, Janneetje Westfall, Sara Westfall, Jacob Westfall, Abel John Westfall, Nicholas Westfall, Klaartjen Westfall, Rymerick Westfall, Helena Westfall, Rachel Westfall, and John W. Westfall.

(1) Johannes and Marritje (Kool) Westfall's son Jurian George Westfall was born in 1684 Kingston, New York. He died in 1753 in Pennsylvania. He married first Styntje Christina Kuykendall. His 2nd wife was Marytjen Maria Koddebek.

------------------

STYNTIE or CHRISTINA, the first child, a daughter of Luur Jacobsen Van Kuykendaal and wife Grietje Aertze Tack, grew up with her parents about fifteen miles from Kingston, New York. She married Jurian Westfall, about 1710; the baptism of their first Child took place in 1711. Jurian and his wife, Christina Van Kuykendaal, lived nearly eleven miles below the present site of Port Jervis, on the Delaware river, in Sussex County, N. J., adjacent to what was then called the "Big Minisink Island." Here Jacob Van Kuykendall and his brother-in-law, Jurian Westfall, lived on part of a tract of land they had bought jointly from Thomas Stevenson, of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, containing 500 acres. They sold a part of this tract to a man named Johannes Westbrook, and divided the remainder between them. The plat of the old original village of Minisink, made April 7, 1725, shows the names of both Jacob Kuykendall and Jurian Westfall and also that of Jacob's brother, Mattheus. Just what time they might have moved on to this place is not known, but it may have been any time between 1714 and 1725, but was probably nearer the first named date. The marriage of Jurian Westfall and Styntie Kuykendall was the first intermarriage of the two families. By this marriage Christina had three children, viz: Johannes, baptized June 24,1711: Jacobus, baptized February 8, 1713; Jacob, baptized June 8, 1715. Christina must have died soon after the birth of this child Jacob, for her husband, Jurian Westfall, married the second time to Marytje Koddebeck, August 20, 1717. Both Cuddebacks and Westfalls intermarried with Kuykendalls afterwards many times From: Kuykendall, George Benson "History of The Kuykendall Family Since Its Settlement in Dutch New York in 1646 With Genealogy,etc" (Portland, OR, 1919)

Samuel Westfall's obituary - From Geneva Gazette 3 March 1871 - Death of Samuel Westfall, Esq. of Phelps - Again we are admonished how sudden is the approach of the King of Terrors. Another citizen has been called to his final resting place. Friends have gathered again to bid adieu to one of their number. Solemn, impressive, yet oh, how sure is death! On Tuesday morning the 21st inst., Mr. Westfall arose, performed the usual work about the premises as he had been accustomed to do, and went out to his woodhouse to saw wood. He cut a few sticks and split the same, and commenced piling them, when suddenly he was noticed by his little grandchild who was present to fall over backwards. The child immediately ran into the house and told his grandmother and aunt that "his grandpa had fallen over backwards and could not get up." They proceeded at once to the woodhouse and found him lying on the ground. They raised him up but he breathed but a few times and was dead. Mr. Westfall had not enjoyed good health for a number of years, yet his death at the time was unlooked for. He lived to see a large family of children grow to man and womanhood, and but a few weeks since to see one of his daughters buried. He was a farmer by occupation, having inherited a portion of his father's estate, which, when a young man he entered upon, and resided till the time of his death. His father was summoned to the boundary line between this state and Canada as a militiaman in 1812, and in the skirmish at Kingston, Canada, lost his life. Mr. Westfall was thoroughly imbued with Democratic principles, as was his father before him; and but few men in his position and standing were more intelligent, more ready to defend the faith that was in him. As a neighbor he was respected, as a parent much revered, as a citizen and one of the pioneers of the town highly honored. His wife and several children survive him. His funeral was attended from his late residence on Friday, the 24th inst., by a large concourse of citizens and friends assembled on that beautiful springlike day to pay him the last tribute of respect and honor.
