Bogart Wees was born abt. 1762, and died in 1801, a daughter of Jacob Wees (sometimes spelled Weese, originally spelled Weiss) and his 1st wife (name unknown). Jacob Wees was a son of Francis and Maaria Barbara (Trout) Weiss. He was born in PA October 7, 1733 and died in Randolph County VA (now WVA) May 11, 1826. He is believed to have married at least twice. His first wife, the mother of Bogart Wees, is unknown. He married his 2nd wife Elisabetha Catherina Wilfong about 1775.

(1aaaaa) Clarence M. Westfall and Gertrude (Pyle) Westfall's daughter Marian Antoinette Westfall Yokel was born Feb. 11, 1926 in Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana. and died May 6, 2016 in Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana. Burial: Salem Cemetery, Evansville, Vanderburgh County, Indiana. She married Louis Henry Yokel (1923 - 1987), and they had a daughter Mary Yokel. ------ A Tribute to Marian Antoinette Westfall Yokel - (Tribute to Mom -- the Heart of Her Heart) -- Mom was born Marian Antoinette Westfall, the only child of Clarence and Gertrude Westfall, and arrived on February 11, 1926. At the time, her parents lived in a very small white house on Pfeiffer Road in Evansville. Since they didn’t have a car at the time, the next door neighbor, Mr. Fellwock, provided the ride to the hospital. He was an experienced dad himself (eventually to 11 children), and his own youngest was then only three weeks old. The Fellwock children were cherished friends to Marian. One of Mom’s favorite memories to tell was of being allowed by her mother to walk the short distance up the hill to Stringtown Road, then down Stringtown hill towards the Pigeon Creek Bridge. As she went, she would see her dad walking up the hill from the trolley stop, coming home from work at a local pharmaceutical firm. This little outing always felt like amazing freedom to young Marian. When first grade rolled around, Mom’s world expanded much more! Not only did she enter Stringtown School with many new children, she met Mary Lou Yokel, who would be her dear friend for years to come. Mary Lou’s house was as bustling as Mom’s was quiet, for Mary Lou was one of the 11 children of Ed and Mary Ella Yokel. Going to Mary Lou’s to play was always an adventure with her many active siblings…one of whom was an older brother, Louis. In the summer of 1937, after the famous winter of flooding, Clarence moved his small family to Newburgh when he opened Westfall Drug Store, on the northeast corner of State and Jennings Streets near the riverfront. Mom kept in touch with her ‘second family’, the Yokels, as she continued through school in Newburgh; however, she finished her high school career at Reitz High School, all the way on Evansville’s west side. To accomplish this, she commuted daily on a two part bus trip (each way) in order to graduate from an accredited high school; she had set her sights on college at DePauw University, in Greencastle, IN. Marian planned to explore her father’s world to some extent, and selected Chemistry as her major. By this time, Louis, that older brother of her friend Mary Lou, was headed off to the Army (and eventually to France), and was looking for folks to write to him while he was far away. Marian volunteered willingly. Though there was no formal relationship, Louis kept her letters (which still exist to this day); and when a hospitable French farm family, hoping he would take an interest in their daughter, asked if he had a girlfriend, he replied that there was someone special back home: a pretty girl, with dark curly hair, named Marian. In the summer of 1946, July 27 to be exact, Louis and Marian were married in the old sanctuary of Salem United Methodist Church, and began life together. In 1950, they built a small, very basic, concrete-block residence on some land on Darmstadt Rd; this adjoined some land where Dad’s twin brother and his wife, Ben and Jackie Yokel, built a home and raised their family of five. The plan was to expand that starter home when children came along…and oh, how eager Marian and Louis were for a family of their own. Several years passed, along with heartbreaking disappointments. Finally in December of 1957, by the blessing of adoption, Timothy Louis Yokel arrived to fill loving arms that had been aching for a child. He brought enormous joy to Marian and Louis. Then in 1961, an unexpected baby girl joined the family; Timmy was OK with the arrival of little sister Mary Gertrude, but it was a letdown when she came home and wasn’t big enough to play with him! Time went by; Louis and Marian poured themselves into raising a strong family and facing life’s trials with faith and principles. Tim and Mary grew up. In 1979, Tim’s son Chad Erik Yokel arrived. Chad developed a wonderful personality as he grew, and brought great delight to his grandparents; we were all grateful that Chad had nine years of growing and love before Louis died in 1987. In the years that followed, Marian spent time with Chad whenever it was possible, especially in summer; she helped make it possible for Chad to attend church camp most summers. They became very close; that loving bond stayed strong, no matter how far away life’s changes took Chad. Chad also grew in a cherished relationship with step-mom, Karen. She and Tim, and “Grandma Yokel”, created a loving network that has endured many miles. Meanwhile, Mary met and married Kevin Ellerbusch. Pursuing their hopes of a family (and Marian’s enthusiasm for additional grandchildren) came to a disappointing end. However, God brought unexpected turns in their journey; they have been deeply blessed to have their world stretched and enriched by their “volunteer sons”: Jamal and Daniel Junius, Joe Tramill, and DeAndre Wilson. These loving young men, in turn, became volunteer grandsons to Marian; she has been affectionately nicknamed Momma Yokel, and became another caring figure in their lives. Some people’s lives are steered, appropriately, by the pull of their talents, careers, and interests. Marian’s life was steered by her love of family: family of origin; her own family; the beloved brothers & sisters, nieces & nephews by marriage; her church family at Salem; and the family she collected as God led her to reach out in love to others by volunteering. She showed her love to the fullest extent her frail earthly body was able to in this life, up until that moment on May 6, 2016, when she was welcomed home to the life that has no end. It is now our turn to rise up, and called her blessed. (Tim, Karen, and Chad, Mary, Kevin, and The Guys)

His home lot was located at about the present north-west corner of Washington and Market Streets.

Hendrich Van Schoonhoven

Hendrich Van Schoonhoven was born abt. 1600 in Wittsburg, Holland. He married Aeltgen Adiens. The Schoonovers came to America before 1650 and were called Van Schoonhoven. They came from Holland. They were originally 'from' Schoonhoven, the small city on the river Lek (really a Roman canal). The name 'Schoon' meant either clean or safe, 'Hoven' meant haven, or save place. The location on the ancient Roman canal made it a 'safe haven'. The Municipality of Schoonhoven has an area of 208 acres. Its population was, in 1930, 4,477 and in 1936, 4,502. It is situated on the bank of Lek, and was in earlier times an important fortress. The origin of the name is explained in two ways; Cornelius Aurelius called it "Bello-Portus" (beautiful harbor) and claimed that its real name was "Schoonhaven" (schoon is beautiful and haven is harbor.) The emblem of Schoonhoven is four climbing lions on a silver field, of which the first and last are black and the two middle ones are red. Children of Hendrich Van Schoonhoven and Aeltgen Adiens were-Claes/Klaas Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven born in 1629 in Wilsburgh/Utrecht, Holland, and died before March 16, 1661 in Ft. Orange/Albany, New York; Geurt Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven born 1634 in Holland, died 12 Jan 1702, married Maritie Cornelis; and Wouter Van Schoonhoven.

(Note; It is not known with certainty whether Claus and Geurt were really brothers.)

(1) Hendrich Van Schoonhoven and Aeltgen Adiens' son Claes/Klaas Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven was born in 1629 in Wilsburgh/Utrecht, Holland, and died before March 16, 1661 in Ft. Orange/Albany, New York. There is a record of him being in Fort Orange (Albany) prior to 1654. He died 15 Mar 1661. He was buried in the church yard of the Dutch Reformed Church in Kingston, N.Y. He married in 1654 to Cornelia ("Neeltie") Fredrickse. Klaas van Schoonover was a carpenter and also dealt in real estate. In 1657 he held a patent for a lot in Beverwyck (original name of Fort Orange). He had a number of real estate transactions recorded in Ulster County, New York prior to his death. A deed of 1657 records the ground on which the Askokan Reservoir now stands near Kingston as the property of Klaas Hendrick Van Schoonhoven, Dutch immigrant from Wiltaberg (Utrecht, Holland). Cornelia married 2nd Willem Janse Stoll who was killed by the Indians at Kingston. She married 3rd 1664 Albert Gooversen and perhaps moved to New York (Amsterdam).

(2a) Claes Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven and Neeltie Fredrickse's son Hendrick Claessen Van Schoonhoven was baptised May 5, 1652 at the Dutch Reformed Church in Fort Orange, Orange, New York, and died aft. December 4, 1715 in Kingston, Ulster County, New York. He was a Carpenter. He and Cornelia are buried in the Dutch Reformed Church, Kingston, the same place his parents are buried. He married 1st Debora Christoffels Davids July 6, 1679. She was baptised Jan 25, 1665 Kingston, NY, and died Dec 4, 1715 Kingston, NY, a daughter of Christoffel "Kit" Davids, born in 1615 or 1616 in England, woodsman, Indian interpreter and whiskey trader and Maria Martens/Maria Martensen, born abt 1633 in Ulster, New York. Their Divorce was Filed Oct 17,1687 in Kingston, Ulster County, NY. Hendrick married 2nd January 1, 1688 to Cornelia Swartwout born March 13,1667, died July 7, 1714 in Kingston Church, New York, daughter of (Sheriff) Roeloff Swartwout and Eva Bradt.

Hendrick's 1st wife Debora was a little over 14 when she married Hendrick who was 27. Despite 8 years of marriage, they produced no children. When she was twenty she had an affair with Peg Leg Perrick or Dirck Adrians Van Vliet and they had an illegitimate son Niclaes Van Schoonhoven. Dirck Van Vliet had one leg. A brother-in-law, Gysbert Krom accidentally shot off Dirck's left leg at a New Year's Eve Party in 1678. A wooden or "peg" leg was the usual artificial limb for the time. In her affadavit Debora states that Dirck would not marry her, but instead, he married another. This would have occurred either before or soon after birth of the child. In 1685, the year in which Niclaas was born, Dirck Van Vliet married Anne Andriesen (baptised 1662), daughter of Andries and Hilletje Hendricks Barentsen. Parents of Dirck Van Vliet were Adrian Gerritsen Van Vliet and Agatha Jans Spruyt. Dirck Van Vliet married Anna Andriesen 4-23-1685 in Kingston, NY. The families of both Dirck and Debora lived in the village of Kingston, and obviously knew one another. The Van Vliet family arrived in New Netherlands on the ship, "Trouw," on 13 June, 1662, and settled at Kingston. Dirck died there in 1702. Over the years the Van Vliet, Schoonover, Krom and Davids (Davis) families intermarried. Later, Debora's grand-daughter, Rebekka, married a Krom who was the grand-son of Dirck Van Vliet. Debora admitted that Hendirck was not the father of her first child and that the father was Derrick Wootin Legg. Debora married in 1692 to Pieter Van Bommel and had the following children-Margaret Van Bommel, married Hendrick Dojo; Marretjen Maria Van Bommel born 1695 in Kingston, Ulster County, NY, married Simon Frere; Marcus Christophl Van Bommel born Jan 9, 1698 in NY; Christoffel Van Bommel born Jan 9, 1698 NY; Elizabeth Van Bommel born May 21, 1701 in Kingston, Ulster County, NY, married Hendrick Ostrander; Pieter Van Bommel born 1704 in Kingston, Ulster County, NY; Debora Van Bommel born Abt 1705, married David Burhans; Antje Van Bommel born 1706 in Kingston, Ulster County, NY; and Pieter Van Bommel born May 7, 1710 in Kingston, Ulster County, NY. Niclaes Van Schoonhoven, baptised February 01, 1685 in Kingston, Ulster County, NY was the illegitimate son of Debora David and Peg Leg Perrick or Dirck/Derrick Adrians Von Vliet. Niclaes was probably raised by Debora's 2nd husband Pieter Van Bommel since he was listed as a step-son in Pieter's will.

Muscatine county IA – Register of Old Settlers Book One - CENTER GROVE, Fulton Twp., Aug. 5th, 1880. - The following notice of James Schoonover, who departed this life in Fulton township, on the 3d, inst., has been handed us for publication: Mr. Schoonover was born in Randolph county, Va., September 17, 1806. Was in good health and bid fair to live to the good age of his father, who was 104 years at his death. December 26, 1869, deceased married Elizabeth Teeter, and in the spring of 1839 left Virginia for Iowa with his wife and five children, floated down the Kanawha river in a canoe with his family and goods to Parkersburg, took steamboat, unloaded his canoe five times on the way, jumping mill dams as he came to them and exposing himself as no one would dare do to-day. Landed at Rock Island May 15th, 1839; settled on Black Hawk creek, Scott county, where he lived four years; buried his wife while there, April 21st, 1840. Of the hardships the early settler endured we know but little. Having a family of five motherless children to care for, and suffering for months with chills and fever, deranged from those terrible headaches, so that he even lost his reckoning and found himself lost to the day of the week; falling through a temporary bridge over the Black Hawk he broke three ribs. These are some of the trails he had to endure. For his second wife he married Thankful Randall, at Center Grove, and whose wife was killed by the falling house by that tornado that passed through the Grove June 4th 1844. In 1843, Mr. S. settled in Fulton township, or what was then included in Montpelier township, Muscatine county. He had four children by the present wife, only one living Benjamin, who is now on the old homestead, which is a fine, well improved farm of over two hundred acres. The first house he built at the Grove was the one in which the first school in the township was taught, and was used for meetings. It stands to-day shingled by his hands and doing good service. The lumber of which it was made he rafted from Wisconsin pineries. He was interesting in conversation, particularly so in relating incidents that occurred during his frontier life. He was not much of a hunter, yet his wife says one morning before breakfast he killed two deer and one wolf. He gave but little attention to politics, yet the old records of 1845 show that he was then acting as Justice of the Peace in Montpelier township. He was liberal, particularly with his church, where, aside from his family, he will be sadly missed. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. E. C. Haskell, in the Center Grove M. E. Church, of which denomination deceased has been a member for the past 56 years. Having given his heart to God at seventeen years of age. In the death of Father Schoonover the wife has lost an effectionate husband, the children a kind an loving father, the church a faithful co-worker and Christian, the community a good citizen.

E. 1st Regiment, Permanent Volunteers, Republic of Texas Army, under Capt. John McClure. During a fight with Indians, presumably Comanches, Joshua was killed on 30 January 1837 in Gonzales County, Texas. At that time, Gonzales County had not yet been divided into 5 or 6 other counties. Burnet County would have been in an unsurveyed area adjacent to the NW part of Gonzales. It is believed that Schoonover Mountain is where Joshua was killed and buried.

The men in Capt. Benjamin Schoonover's company were also of the Lower Smithfield area, according to tax lists and to the pension application files found for a few of them. Benjamin married Margaret Schoonover before 1767. Benjamin Schoonover (Schoonhoven) and Margaret his wife in 1796 sold their land on Bushkill, Lower Smithfield Twp., then in Northampton Co.

(Note: BENJAMIN SCHOONOVER (ca. 1741 IN NJ - 1813, Ulysses Town, NY) AND MARGARET SCHOONOVER, HIS WIFE (ca.1735 IN NJ - bef. May 1812, Walpack, Sussex Co, NJ), OF WALPACK AND LOWER SMITHFIELD, AND THEIR SMITH DESCENDANTS Based on research Ms. Marsha E. Smith.-----------Benjamin Schoonover was son of Nicholas (Niclaes) and Peternella (Westfall) Schoonover. Benjamin's baptism 12 July 1741 was recorded at the Dutch Reformed Church, Walpack Twp., Sussex Co. NJ. The will of Benjamin's father, Nicholas Schoonhoven of Walpack, written Jan 1759 with codicil 6 Oct 1761, bequeathed to wife Pattenella / Peternela, son Hendricus (eldest: the house and lot deeded to him); sons Peter (third son), James, Benjamin, Ezekiel, and Joseph, and daughters Sarrah and Mary. Estate to be divided among the children. Wife to have use of all estate while widow, 40 pounds if she remarry [West Jersey wills 12:235, 59S-W, proved 28 Sep 1764]. Note that this Nicholas did not therefore die ten years later (about December 1, 1774) as stated in the Schoonover Master Tree [#16], and most likely died in the Walpack vicinity rather than in Orange Co., NY. The will of Margaret's father, Hendricus Schoonover of Walpack, written 20 Apr 1767, bequeathed to wife Hanah, sons Henry (oldest), Rodolph and John, and to daughters Rachel, Cornelia, Margaret, Elisabeth, Catherine and Mary, and to various others (grandchildren), among them Johanna daughter of Benjamin Schoonover [West Jersey wills 155S - W; proved 4 Oct 1771]. We have not found documentation of Margaret's date of birth in Minisink region church records. Her mother is believed by Schoonover and Montanye researchers to have been Johanna (Decker). The Moravian missionary, Brother Sven Roseen, repeatedly visited the area of Lower Smithfield, (now) Monroe Co., PA and went across the river to Walpack, Sussex Co., NJ. Translation of the portions of Roseen's diary between July 1748-July 1749 is reprinted in The Dansbury Diaries 1748-1755 (Camden, ME: Picton Press, 1994). "Dansbury" was the name of the settlement that later was named Stroudsburg. The missionary repeatedly mentions Nicholas Schoonover and his wife and family, and once mentions Nicholas' son Benjamin. He also mentions Henricus Schoonover (Nicholas' brother) and their neighbor Benjamin Smith and Catherine his wife. All had varying degrees of sympathy toward the views of the United Brethren, except for Nicholas' wife, who Roseen states was steadfast adherent to the Reformed Dutch church. Roseen mentions the visit in 1748 to Walpack of Abraham Smith, son of Lt. John Smith of "Shenandoe," calling Abraham son of Nicholas Schoonover's sister. The gossipy Roseen mentions comment by Benjamin Smith on 10 acres conveyed to the Brethren by Nicholas Schoonover and one Brink for a school; Roseen wrote that Smith told him this was "really" part of Smith's land [Diaries p. 94, June 29 1749]. Candace E. Anderson has abstracted early records of Northampton Co., PA, which at the time included Lower Smithfield. In her first volume, Ábstracts of Deeds . . . 1752-. . .1773 (Apollo, PA: Closson Press, 2000) she includes abstracts of documents bearing various dates preserved within an unpaginated book in the Northampton County Clerk's office.On Anderson's p. 179 she lists a plat of 10-3/4 acres in Walpack Twp., then in Hunterdon Co., NJ, adjacent the Delaware River on the west, on the N and E next to Nicholas Scoonhoven's land and on the South to Company land. Written on the plat is some ownership history.The 10-3/4 acres was part of a 500-acre tract "Marah" conveyed (in part?) in Oct. 1725 to Nicholas Scoonhoven and Thomas Brinck, and (part?) to Joseph Kirkbride in June 1746. Then N. Scoonhoven, T. Brink and Benj. Smith conveyed a plot on the bank of the Delaware "where the schoolhouse was" to Jos. Powell, David Brice, and Joseph Shaw (no date given).The latter three men are among the United Brethren who had responsibility for the Smithfield-Walpack area, according to related material about the Moravian mission reprinted in Dansbury Diaries. Then 23 May 1765 Nath'l Serdie [sic in abstract, identified as Brother Seidel in _Dansbury Diaries_] of Bethlehem PA made an agreement with James Vandemark of Walpack allowing Vandemark to occupy the schoolhouse for four years.The reason for this document's filing in Northampton Co. records seems to relate to the last entry on the plat, which states that Thomas Shaw (one of the four grantees of the schoolhouse lot) left Walpack in April 1747, his first wife was May [sic] Jones and his second was lost at sea in Oct. 1747. Accompanying the plat was a list of "Members of Shaw's Church," including (of Walpack) Nicholas Schoonhoven and wife, Rudolph and Dorothea Scoonhoven, Henry and Hanna Scoonhoven, Benj. and Cathar. Smith.The undated list also mentions Joseph Powel and James Burnside in Walpack, 1746. On 8 Sep 1764 Aaron Dupui and Jemmima his wife, of Lower Smithfield Twp., agreed to convey 205 acres on McMicles Ck. in Lower Smithfield to Jacobus Schoonhoven of Walpack Twp., Sussex Co., West New Jersey (land originally patented to Dupui in 1762) [recorded 20 Apr 1768, Northampton Co. PA deeds B1:153-156, Anderson p. 86].Then 12 Mar 1767 Jacobus Schoonoven of Walpack Twp. and Hannah his wife agreed to sell to Benjamin Schoonoven of Lower Smithfield Twp., 118 acres in Lower Smithfield, already possessed by Benjamin, part of a larger tract conveyed to Jacobus by Aaron Dupui and wife Jemmima; witnesses: Joseph Montanye and Peter Scoonhoven [also recorded 20 Apr 1768, Northampton Co. PA deeds B1:156-157, Anderson p. 86]. Benjamin Schoonoven, administrator on the estate of Peter Vandermark of Lower Smithfield Twp., requested an audit of accounting in Northampton Co. PA Orphans Court, 11 August 1774.The estate included 93 acres adjoining Samuel Drake and Jacob Minor. [Candace E. Anderson, _Genealogical Abstracts of Orphans Court Records Volumes A-E_; this in Vol. D.; Anderson omits original page numbers; Anderson's p. 83].

Benjamin Schoonhover was among those in Capt. Timothy Jayne's Northampton Co. Militia company who took an oath of allegiance to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, in Smithfield, on 7 August 1777.[_Northampton Co. Miscellaneous Public Records 1767-1779_, following p. 225; abstract by Anderson, this entry on her p. 202].In the _PA Archives, 5th series_, Vol. VIII, p. 560 ff. are transcripts of Capt. Benjamin Schoonover's company pay rolls for 1778, 1779, 1780, 1781 and 16 Apr 1782. He was discharged 26 May, 1782.In Northampton County, returns of Officers of the 6th Battalion of Militia of Northampton Co., June 18, 1777, Benjamin Schoonover was listed as 2nd Lieutenant, Capt. Samuel Hover's Company, serving under Colonel Jacob Stroud [_PA Archives 5th Series_. VIII:425]. Anyone interested can track the majority of men in Capt. Schoonover's Company in Lower Smithfield Twp. by means of tax lists and the 1790 US Census. In a letter datelined Lower Smithfield, Northampton County, Septem'r 27th, 1778, several of those in charge of the militia outline dire circumstances: "Above us in Deleware & upper Smithfield, a fine Contry near thirty miles in length, is almost Evacuated, the people moved over to new Jersey for safety; & in this Township there is only a Guard left at Cornl. Stroud, whoes times is almost expired & will soon return home, & unless they are replaced with others we shall lay expos'd to the Ravages of the savages." [John Van Campen, John Chambers, Sub Lt., Benjamin Van Campen, Sub Lt., Nicholas Depui and Jacob Stroud, Cornl. to George Bryan, Vice President of the Supreme Executive Council; _Pennsylvania Archives First Series_ VI:767].It seems likely that this evacuation to New Jersey was an opportunity for Benjamin and Margaret Schoonover's daughter, Johannah Schoonover, to meet the family of the widowed Keziah (Pelton) Smith, including her son, Platt Smith. Documentation of disposition of these families has not been found, but some may have been taken in by inhabitants well away from the Delaware River, between the settlements of Hope and Hackettstown. The Smiths at this time lived in the vicinity of Vienna, Independence Twp., present Warren Co., NJ.

Tax assessment rolls for Lower Smithfield Twp., Northampton Co., PA, including those for both State and Federal assessments, are held by the Northampton County Clerk. Some are detailed itemizations, some give only an assessed valuation, some just list the tax owed.They were read and most generously shared from microfilm of the documents by Fran W.All valuations and tax assessments are in pounds-shillings-pence, presumably ‘Pennsylvania money' of the time.Note that 'James' was frequently substituted by English-speakers for the first names of men known as 'Jacob' in their home communities. The Peter and 'James' Schoonover in the tax lists are most likely older brothers of our subject Benjamin.Rodolphus / Dolphus / Dolves Schoonover in these assessments was probably Margaret's brother of the same name, who was about the same age as Margaret's husband Benjamin. Some Benajah Mundy and Casparus Vanauken are mentioned here because they had children who married children of Platt and Johannah (Schoonover) Smith. For 1779 Benjamin Schonover was assessed on 100 acres, of which 45 acres was cleared and 8 acres sown, and on 3 horned chattles, 3 horses and 5 sheep.Dolphus Schonover was assessed on 200 acres, of which 60 acres were cleared and 15 sown, and on 6 horned chattles, 4 horses and 8 sheep. Peter Schonover had 56 acres, 30 cleared, 5 sown, as well as 4 horned chattles, 3 horses and 5 sheep.James Schonover had 188 acres, 40 cleared and 12 sown, 5 horned chattles, 3 horses and 7 sheep.None of the Schonovers were assessed on a trade or occupation. Neither Platt nor John Smith were listed, nor was Benajah Monday. For 1780 Benjamin Schoonover was assessed on a valuation of £115.11.2, Dolphus Schoonover not found listed. Peter Schoonover's assessed valuation was £23.11.3, and James' was £51.11.2.Again there was no listing for Platt or John Smith, nor for Benajah Monday. For 1783 there were two different tax assessments listed, not clear from the documents whether they were State or Federal. Benjamin Schoonhover owed £2.15.6 and £1.17.6, Dolphus owed an illegible amount and £4.11.9. Peter's taxes were £1.18.3 and £1.5.3, and James' were £3.15.9 and 2.10.9. Platt Smith was assessed £0.4.0 and £0.2.0, John Smith owed £10.12.6 and £6.12.6. Benajah Monday owed £0.7.0 and 0.5.0.)

(Note: From - The Hissem-Montague Family Website - http://balder.prohosting.com/shissem/Hissem_William_Hissom_Branch.html -- Walpack Church - The site of the first church of the Walpack congregation was within the Walpack Bend of the Delaware river, about a mile west of the present-day village of Flatbrookville, in the township of Walpack, Sussex county, New Jersey, near the fork of the road leading down to Rosencrantz ferry. On the other side of the river, in Northampton county, is the Walpack ferry. This site was upon the Old Mine Road which connected the original copper/zinc mines in the Minisinck with New Amsterdam. The original deed for the ground, containing four acres, upon which the church was erected was made by Thomas Brink and Nicholas Schoonhovan, in the tenth year of His Majesty, King George, 1 February 1737.)

(2) Hendrich van Schoonhoven and Aeltgen Adiens' son Geurt Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven was born 1634 in Holland. He came to America and settled in Beverwyck perhaps as late as the 1650s. Beverwyck was the name given to the community of fur traders that first emerged along the Hudson River north of Fort Orange during the 1640s. Geurt supported  himself through carpentry.  He rented a dwelling while working out of a "celler with a lean-to shed" - which he purchased in 1663. Later, he owned a house and lot within the Albany stockade. In 1675 Geurt was farming in Half Moon and in 1681 on Cohoes Island. By the 1860's he had married Maritie Cornelis. They were members of the Albany Dutch Church. Maritie was born in Europe, came to America and all of her children were born here prior to 1683. She lived with Geurt in Albany and in his other up-river residences. Their six children also became members of the Albany Dutch Church. Maritie Cornelis Van Schoonhoven witnessed the baptism of a granddaughter in 1704.  Maritie may have died as late as 1710. In August 1700, Geurt Hendrickse made a will calling himself a yeoman of Halfmoon. As was the custom, he acknowledged the suppremacy of God and his own allegience to the king of England. He left his "well beloved wife Maritie Cornelius" his entire Halfmoon estate and also his lot in Albany. She was made executrix. The eldest son Jacob was given one pound and ten shillings as his birthright and son Hendrick was left Geurt's carpenter tools. The sons were to share farm tools. After their mother's death, the sons were to have the Halfmoon and Albany property appraised, and, after six years, divide the proceeds six ways to include their sisters, Margarita, Hendrickie, Geertruy, and Jacomyntie Van Schoonhoven. Geurt Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven, the New Netherland patriarch died 12 Jan 1702. Children of Geurt Van Schoonhoven and Maritie Cornelie were-Jacobus Van Schoonhoven, born abt May 1684, married Susanna Bradt; Hendrick Van Schoonhoven, died bef 27 Apr 1707; Margareta Van Schoonhoven, died bef 19 Aug 1700; Hendrikje Van Schoonhoven, married Pierre Benoit 14 Dec1696; Geertruy Van Schoonhoven, married Willem Hunt 27 Oct 1700; Jacomyntie Van Schoonhoven, married Abraham Van Deusen/Deurse 23 May 1697.

Like most of his neighbors, Jacobus served in the Albany County Militia. He was a lieutenant in a ranger company in 1703 and later, in 1715, commanded a company of the militia drawn from Niskayuna and Halfmoon, as appears by his signed muster-roll. Later he was captain of the militia company drawn from Niskayuna and Halfmoon. A captain needed to be a man of means as he was responsible for raising and outfitting his company. Then his expenses could be reimbursed.
