Jacob Helmick

Jacob Helmick was the father of my gr. gr. gr. grandmother Elizabeth Helmick. Jacob Helmick was born in 1748 in Virginia, he died in 1815. He was the son of Jacob A. Helmick born 1720, and Sarah Schotts. Jacob Helmick fought in the Revolutionary War. He married Barbara Hinkle, the daughter of Jacob and Sarah (Teter) Hinkle. They had 11 children-Adam Helmick, Jacob Helmick Jr., John Helmick, Hannah Helmick, Elizabeth Helmick, Sarah Helmick, Madeline Helmick, Barbara Eve Helmick, Abraham Helmick, Mary Helmick, and Margaret Helmick.

(Note: Some sources say Jacob Helmick's wife was Barbara Hinkle, and other sources say Jacob Helmick's wife was Barbara Borer.)

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

Another source said Jacob Helmick (son of Jacob A. Helmick and Sarah A. Schotts) was born 1748 in Hampshire County, Colony of Virgina, and died June 13, 1815 in Pendleton Co., (W)VA, and that he married Barbara Borer in 1770 in Randolph County, Va., daughter of Jacob Borer and Barbary Tschudi. Jacob Helmick was a prosperous farmer who settled in Hampshire County, (now Pendleton Co., WV) in Tygarts Valley. In the will he made dated June 13, 1815, he leaves the bulk of his estate to his two sons, Adam and Abraham. During the Revolutionary War he served in Captain Stump's Company, Lafayette's Command. In "The Henckel Genealogy" it states that Jacob was probably the son of Jacob A. Helmick born 1712 of Richmond County, Virginia who in turn was the son of John Helmick son of John Helmick born 1682 in Jamestown, Virginia. The Helmick History continues: "The name Helmick has been traced in a history of the Pennsylvania Dutch to near the city of Strasbourg in Alsace, Germany. It is supposed they came over with the large emigration about 1700 to l730 and landed at Philadelphia, PA. Authentic history of our immediate ancestors begins with four brothers who lived on Red Stone Creek near where Uniontown, PA now stands. They all fought in the Revolutionary War." "Early Records of Hampshire Co." contains a will dated 10/19/1778 made by Jacob Borer and probated 11/10/1778. This will lists his wife, Barbary and eight children: Barbary, Charles, Mary Jacob, Elizabeth, Thomas, Martin and Rosanna. Executors are his wife, Jacob Hankel and John Wilson. Sec. are Christopher Ermintrout and Henry Judy. Witnesses are: Jacob Helmick, Jaco Ross and Chrles Bower (Borer). There is also a record in the Hampshire Co. "Index to Land Deeds" showing that Jacob Helmick purchased 100 acres of land from Thomas Lord Fairfax on 3/6/1780, recorded 3/14/1780. The land was located on South Branch. Witnesses were: Robert Stephens, G. Iones, Andrew Wodrow, Job Bacorn and John Bacorn.

It was property embracing rivers and mountains, forests and prairies, and wealth unexplored...pathless wilds, a large portion of which was then ranged only by wild beasts and savage men..." Note by C.N.H. -"It is quite possible that George Washington surveyed the land that later was leased to Jacob Helmick).

(Above information is from the Hacker's Creek Journal Vol. I, II and III published by the Hacker's Creek Pioneer Descendants, Inc. of Jane Lew, WV.)

John Helmick is identified in the Hampshire County 1784 census of Michael Stump, but not in the 1782 census of Abel Randall, suggesting he lived with his father at that time. Indications are his property was on the west side of the South Branch Potomac between Mooresfield and Durgon. He later moved west to the Georgetown area. In 1808 John and Joan deed 111 acres to Edward Whitefor $900. In 1811 John and Mary Ann deed land on Dodson Run to Aiken Lewis. In 1844 deeded 22 1/2 acres to Felix Albert, Little Skin Creek.

(Lewis Co. Land and Property Book, 1853-1871) - (The Helmicks and Mount Gilead Methodist Protestant Church (excerpted from 'Lewis County West Virginia: A Pictoral History of Old Lewis County The Crossroads of Central West Virginia by Joy Gregoire Gilchrist and Charles H. Gilchrist. 1993) - John Helmick and his first wife, Joanna Ryan, had two sons, Daniel and (disputed), before Joanna died. John then married Mary Ann Hacker, the youngest daughter of John and Margaret (Sleeth) Hacker. Mary Ann was born two years after the massacre of her oldest sister of the same name. When John and Mary Ann died, they were buried in a community cemetery on thier farm. The cemetery has since been destroyed except for a pile of rocks that marks the Helmick graves. John and Mary Ann had eleven children.

Methodist Protestant minister with his first pastorage at Mount Gilead church, today called Georgetown United Methodist Church. The first church class was organized in 1834 by Rev. John Clark, and the first meetings were held in homes.The first church building, which also served as a school, was a large hewn-log structure built about 1835 on land donated by John Helmick. It was covered with hand-split shingles and had five or six windows covered by greased paper. It was lighted by tallow candles set in sockets fastened in the walls around the room and two copper candlesticks on the pulpit.Heat was provided first by a "fire box" and then by the "bee gum" type stoves. Seats were pioneer log benches. Charter members of the church were John and Elizabeth Hardman, Richard and Elizabeth Johnson, George I. and Margaret Marsh, Jesse L. Peterson, William and Elizabeth McNemar, Isaac and Elizabeth McNemar, Philip and Sarah Linger, David Wetzel, John McNemar, Anthony Spaur and their families. The log church served the community until 1856 when it was torn down by Robert Clark who used the logs to build his tannery. A frame church, located on the site of the present church, replaced it and served as the place of worship until 1927 when the present structure was built. The Mount Gilead Cemetery abuts the church lot and has served as a burial place for community residents since circa 1835. Mount Gilead has been called the "Mother of Methodism" because of the number of ministers that have come from her congregation. Besides Daniel R. Helmick, there were the Reverends John Hardman, Eli J. Wilson, L.A. McNemar, George W. and William Worth Hudson, George I. Marsh, I.A. Warner, Aaron M. Linger, and Anthony Spaur.All were ordained in the Methodist Protestant Conference. Deed book 1, page 279.In 1865 John H. Helmick (son) deeded 130 from acres on Little Skin Creek from John's estate to C.P. Hudson.Deed Book 2, page 124. In 1865 Daniel Ryan Helmick also deeded another 131 acres from John's estate to C.P. Hudson, Deed Book 5, page 406.

--- (From Ernest Helmick grandson of John Helmick: "John Wesley Helmick" John Westley Helmick, son of Jacob N. Helmick and Barbara Boars, was born May th. 1779 in Randolph County Va. In 1805 he married the daughter of Solom Ryan. " Joan", They had one child. His name was Daniel Ryan Helmick born December 23rd. 1805. Got some information that John and Joan had a child James Helmick that died. Now I have some history on Daniel Ryan Helmick and it will be in his file. Getting back to John Wesley,,,, After his wife Joan died in 1807, he moved from Beverly, Randolph county, to Georgetown, Louis county. There he met the lovely daughter of John and Margaret "Sleeth" Hacker " Mary Ann Hacker the 2nd." John and Mary Ann got married on August 28th 1811 John and Mary Ann settled down between Berlin and Buckhannon along the Little Kanoah River.(Spring Branch) The old house burned in the winter of 1817 and they built a new house about 300 to 400 feet from the old house. The house was built from yellow popular and the weather boards were the same. (siding) The house, barn, grainery, and other buildings are all in good shape today without any paint ever applied. The chimney is as straight as an arrow without the aid of any mortar. It was· mortared in 1984 by Dale Helmick who owns the place or part of it. Some of it· was under water due to the Kanowah Light & Power dam. Dale is the great· grandson of Jacob B. Helmick. John Westley died 1862 and is buried across from the new house or in back· of the old house. Mary Ann Hacker died in the home of her son, Ira Ellis in Hetti, Braxton County, January 22nd 1880. She is buried along side of grandpa John Westley.)

John was one of five known children born to William Hacker (1690 - 1772) and Ann Turner Dillon Hacker (1707 - 1772). His siblings were: William Hacker, born 1739; Elizabeth Hacker, born ca. 1741, married John Freeman; Nancy Ann Hacker, born ca 1745, married James Keith & Col. Claypool; and Mary Polly Hacker born 1747, married John Bush. John married Margaret Ann Sleeth in 1765 in Loudon Co., VA. She was the daughter of John and Mary (Wallace) Sleeth.

When John moved and located his family on Hacker's Creek in 1769, he brought his parents with him and took care of them until they died; the father in 1772 aged 92 years and the mother in 1778. This family was the first family to live on Hacker's Creek, and their second child, William, was the first white child born there. John served "under the command of Captain James Booth who commanded a Company of Militia in defense of that part of the Western frontier of West Augusta which now comprises the Counties of Harrison and Lewis. He served two long years (1782-1784) with George Rogers Clark on his campaign against the British at Kaskaskia and Vincennes. He served at various times as a magistrate and sheriff. He was appointed by the Harrison County court, together with John Waggoner and Jacob Cozad, to represent the county at the Greenville Treaty in 1795. John's Will was written, signed and witnessed in Lewis Co., VA on 18 March 1822, and it lists all eleven of his children.

On September 26, 1776, Cornelius Bogard signs petition in Tygart Valley asking for 3 companies of Rangers to protect settlers from expected incursions by Indians. Cornelius Bogard settled on the west side of the Tygart Valley River about 3 miles north of Beverly, Augusta Co. (now Randolph Co.), (W.) Virginia, before 1778. He had left his settlement sometime prior to 1780 and assigned his rights to Daniel Westfall. (Land Commission records of 1780, published by Katherine Gentry Bushman in Augusta Historical Bulletin). On November 3, 1780, Cornelius Bogart survey of 380 acres of land in then Augusta Co., Virginia, adjoining William Cassety. This land was on Files Creek east of now Beverly, Randolph Co., (W.) Va., the third land grant up the creek. (Certified by Augusta land commision 5/15/1784; Augusta Grants, bk 1 pg 135, WV Auditors Office) 1782 tax list of Monongalia Co., (W.)

(Randolph County Power of Attorney bk 1) NOTE: According to researcher Rick Brown, Cornelius Bogard, who had been appointed sheriff of Randolph County, VA in 1793 “fled on a fast horse across the Ohio river to Ross County, Ohio in 1798 a step ahead of the law and died there in 1800.” It is not clear what Bogard had done to cause his flight from Virginia to Ohio.

(Note: Bogard/Petty Connection - Contributed by Rick Brown, 1048 Orr Road, Chillicothe, Ohio 45601 - 1-614-642-2876 ----- This article discusses the maternity of Cornelius Bogard who lived m Hardy and Randolph Counties of West Virginia and died in 1800 in Ross County, Ohio. The subject of Cornelius' maternity is an area of disagreement among many Bogard researchers Some believe that Cornelius is the son of his father's first spouse and others the son of his second. It is a fact that there is a baptismal record that states that one Cornelius Bogard was baptized in 1723 the son of Gysbert Bogard and Catrina Decker. It is also a fact that Gysbert Bogard married second to a widow woman named Elizabeth Petty. The path of Gysbert Bogard to Hardy County is not at all certain. It is thought that he was born in New York and then moved into Hampshire County (now Hardy County) in the 1740's. There could be evidence that he might have lived in New Jersey or Pennsylvania before coming to West Virginia, but the fact is that he moved to West Virginia, and that be died there m 1778. Did his spouse come with him? Or did she die in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, or on the journey? We do not know. The fact is that Gysbert was in West Virginia and so were his children.

Gysbert's second spouse was Elizabeth Petty. As stated earlier she was widowed, and her spouse was Mr. Petty. The question here is where did this husband die? We know they were Pennsylvanians. Did he die in Pennsylvania, in West Virginia, or on the journey? We do not know. It would be nice to know where Mr. Petty and Mrs. Bogard died. It is my "two cent" theory that both Gysbert and Elizabeth came to West Virginia as married people and their spouses died after arriving in West Virginia, but that does not matter as this moment. The question is who is the mother of Cornelius Bogard, Catrina Decker or Elizabeth Petty.? This article will answer that question. Gysbert had two sons, Ezekiel and Cornelius. Ezekiel Bogard settled in Franklin County, Ohio. He died there in 1807 Ezekiel's brother, the subject of this article, settled in Ross County, Ohio. Cornelius died a few years before his brother arrived in the state. Their homes were 30 minutes apart by today's highways and vehicles.

It is my opinion and that of David Armstrong of Elkins, West Virginia that Gysbert Bogard had four sons, two by Catrina Decker mad two by Elizabeth Petty. We believe that the two sons by Catrina Decker, named Cornelius and Ezekiel, died young, maybe at the same time as their mother, Catrina. Gysbert named his second two sons after his first two deceased sons. These are the sons that we know as Cornelius and Ezekiel mentioned in many records of West Virginia and Ohio. The reasons that we believe this to be true will follow in this article. David did research into the naming of children of many Dutch families. It is not uncommon to name children after deceased siblings. I have personally run across these many times in my twenty plus years of genealogical research. David found two separate accounts of this in the Bogard family. The following is an abstract from a letter to me from David Armstrong dated July 17, 1996: Enclosed find family group sheets on two Bogards, one on Jacob Bogard who married Nelly Kuykendall, brother of our Gysbert, and one on another Gysbert Bogard, this one of Bucks County, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, a very distant cousin if a relative at all. I fell into this Gysbert Bogard of Bucks County when I was poking around looking for Pettys, or for a Gysbert and Elizabeth Bogard in Pennsylvania about when we think ours was there. This Gysbert is definitely a different guy, his baptisms and will are cited on the sheet, but it is the children on both the Jacob and Bucks County Gysbert group sheets that are important to his mystery. Look at them carefully Do you see what I see? Jacob Bogard named two daughters Sara. This sheet is from my research in the published baptisms as cited. And look at the Bucks County Gysbert sheet, He named two daughters Maritje and two daughters Sara, in the same order. My first thought was do we have the same or two different Gysbert Bogards? But his will mentions son John A by the first wife Marritje etc..... So we have good, solid evidence of another Bogard naming kids after their own apparently deceased siblings. And when compared to the wording of the will of Hampshire County Gysbert this sheet takes on added importance. Hampshire County Gysbert said that his eldest son was Cornelius and his youngest son was Ezekiel. This matches the birth order in the 1723 and 1738 baptisms in New York for the sons of Gysbert and Catrina Decker Bogard. But it does not necessarily mean the sons in 1776 (will of Gysbert) are the same sons from 1723 and 1738. What if Bucks County Gysbert had referred in his will to "my eldest daughter Marritje and her younger sister Sara?" He didn't, but if he had he would have been talking about two daughters who had older deceased siblings of the same name and birth order. So the sons mentioned in the will of Gysbert Bogart in Hampshire County, could be the sons of the same Gysbert who had sons of those names born 1723 and 1738, but still not be the same sons. This whole thing makes perfect sense in my mind, but am I getting it down intelligently on paper?

In the Court records of Hampshire County, West Virginia, Elizabeth (Petty) Bogard mentions 100 acres that belonged to her by will in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. In further searches two powers of attorney statements are found in the records of Randolph County, WV. These powers of attorney documents are back to back in the records. The first one is written by Cornelius Bogard, giving John Petty power of attorney, to act on land for him in Pennsylvania. The second is written by Cornelius Bogard as power of attorney for Ebenezer Petty to give power of attorney to John Petty to act on land in Pennsylvania. The documents read as follows: Cornelius Bogard to } Know all men by this Presents that John Petty } I Cornelius Bogard of the County of Ran- Power of Attorney } dolph and Commonwealth of Virginia have for divers causes me hereunto moving Con- stitute appoint and confirmed John Petty of the County of (sic) and State of Pennsylvania my true and Lawful attorney to Act and do for me and in my Name and behalf in all cases and actions either in Law or equity so for as may be necessary for the obtaining my part and proportion of a certain tract or parcel of land lying and being in the County of and State of Pennsylvania late the estate of Elizabeth Bogard deceased Demised to her by the late Will and Testament of (sic) and now deceased in equal parcenary to the aforesaid John Petty and Joseph Petty and Ebenezer Petty my half Brothers and Sons of the said Elizabeth Bogard and to me Cornelius Bogard and Ezekiel Bogard my Brother and further to sell Transfer aline enfeoff and convey unto my purchaser my said part and proportion of the aforesaid Tract or parcel of Land and also further to Constitute and appoint one more attorney to act and do for him and me in all cases causes and actions either in Law or equity touching or in anywise concerning the premises and I the said Cornelius Bogard do by Virtue of the presents Ratify and confirm whatsoever my said Attorney or Attorneys may or will act or do at any time and at all times conducting with and according to the Powers hereby invested in him or them as fully effectually and intirely as that I was actually and personally present in the Execution of the same actions and doings and in Witness of the premises I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 22nd Day of January 1790.

Cornelius Bogard attorney in fact for Ebenezer Petty SEAL Signed Sealed and acknowledged } in open Court } Teste John Wilson, Clerk Cornelius Bogard gives a power of attorney (Randolph County, WV power of attorney book 1) to his "half brother" John Petty on Feb. 22, 1790. In his power of attorney it states "the Estate of Elizabeth Bogard deceased demised to her by the late will and testament of (sic) and now deceased in equal parcenary to the aforesaid John Petty and Joseph Petty and Ebenezer Petty my half Brothers and sons of Elizabeth Bogard and to me Cornelius Bogard and Ezekiel Bogard my Brother and further sell transfer aline entooff and convey unto any purchaser my said part and proportion of the aforesaid tract or parcel of land…" The other power of attorney of Ebenezer to his brother John Petty is a similar document and almost exact. In fact, it was written by Cornelius Bogard as an attorney in fact for Ebenezer. Ebenezer must have given his half-brother Cornelius a power of attorney to write a power of attorney for him. He (Cornelius, power of attorney for Ebenezer) states that John Petty, Joseph Petty, and me Ebenezer Petty brothers and Cornelius Bogard and Ezekiel Bogard are half-brothers and sons of the said Elizabeth Bogard. Some say that Cornelius made a mistake and recorded half-brother instead of stepbrother when talking about the relationship of himself to John, Joseph and Ebenezer Petty. And that Cornelius made another mistake when they said Elizabeth Bogard was their mother instead of stepmother. I do not believe this to be true and that Cornelius was simply giving his half brother authority to do what needed to be done to the Pennsylvania lands that his mother inherited.

There is a will of an Owen Jones in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania recorded in Will book H page 470, that mentions Elizabeth Petty. This is the only Elizabeth Petty in the abstracted index of the Philadelphia wills. The following is the abstract of this will that I found in the Abstracts of Philadelphia County (Pennsylvania) Wills, page 212, in the Ft. Wayne Public Library, Ft. Wayne. Indiana: Jones, Owen. Merion, Philadelphia County, Tanner, Jan 16, 1747/8. Jan. 28, 1947 H. 470. Exec. wife Ann and Mary Meredith. Daughters in law: Mary Meredith, Margaret Casilbury, Pisillow Howell, Abigail Davis, and Elizabeth Petty. Beneficiary: Thomas Thomas (servant). Trustees: Stephen Evans and Henry Pawling. Witnesses: John Calahan (his mark), Eve Beinor (her mark). This Owen Jones owned 100 acres in Merion Township of Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Elizabeth Petty mentions having and interest in 100 acres in Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. Also, there happens to be a John Petty owing 500 acres in White Marsh township, which borders Merion Township to the East. David Armstrong continues in his letter of July 17, 1997. It should not be assumed that the presence of the power of attorney documents in the debate is the only problem with the maternity of Cornelius Bogard of Randolph County. In fact there are multiple problems with assuming that Randolph County Cornelius is born in 1723 and a son of Catrina Decker. To begin with, if we assume that Randolph County Cornelius is that old we must assume..... That 1723 Cornelius left no known record until he was in his 30 's in 1762. That he did not marry until he was 47 years old about 1770. That he joined the army in 1775 at age 53, and served in some capacity through the 1790's, and rode to Ohio as a captain at the age of 67 in the 1790's. That he was appointed sheriff of Randolph County at age 72 in 1793, while his successors and predecessors were in their 40's. That he fled on a fast horse across the Ohio one step ahead of the law in 1798 when he was almost 80 That would be a remarkable series of assumptions! No, it is clear to me that Randolph County Cornelius (there is only one here according to the tax lists) was a younger man born about 1750 to Elizabeth Petty, and married Sarah about 1770.

The author of this history believes that Elizabeth Petty and Gysbert Bogard had children. I believe that they had at least two sons. These are the sons that Gysbert mentioned in his will, Cornelius and Ezekiel, the youngest. This is also the belief of several other Bogard researchers including David Armstrong of Elkins, WV. We have collected much data on this family. We believe with the available information we have collected from this time we must make a conclusion. The mother of Cornelius Bogard, sheriff of Randolph County, who fled to Ross County, Ohio in the late 1790's and died there in 1800 was Elizabeth Petty, spouse of Gysbert Bogard.

I [Rick Brown] welcome all correspondence on this matter, but please do not send me any copies of published histories, pedigrees, or group sheets that contradict this as I have seen them. I would however welcome any new, original evidence that disproves any of this. The Allegheny Regional Family History Society Post Office Box 1804 Elkins, West Virginia, 26241 arhfs@yahoo.com)

Anthony De Hooges

Anthony De Hooges was born 1620 in Holland and he died 1655 in Albany, Albany County, New york. He married in 1647 at Rensselaerwych, New York Eva Bradt born 1632 or 1633 in Holland, died 1689, Hurley, Ulster County, New York. Their daughter Eleanora De Hooges was the mother of Margrietje "Margaret" De Duyster (my gr. gr. gr. gr. gr. grandmother who married Jacob Westfall, my gr.gr. gr. gr. gr. grandfather.

Anthony De Hooges was born December 14, 1620 in Noord, Amsterdam, Holland, and died October 11, 1655 in Albany, NY. He was the son of Johannes De Hooges and Maria Tijron. He married Eva Bradt October 01, 1647 in Albany, NY. Eva Bradt was born Bef. January 09, 1632/33 in Amsterdam, Holland, and died 1689 in Hurley, NY. She was the daughter of Albert Andriessen Bradt and Annetie Barentse.

Anthony De Hooges's parents' Johannes and Maria had their banns published 21 Mar 1608 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Johannes was a bookkeeper and shareholder for the West India Company and the son of Jan de Hooges and Catharina de Draijere of Mechelen, Belgium. Johannes's father, Jan de Hooges was born abt. 1555 in Mechelen, Belgium, and his mother Catharina de Draijere was born abt. 1560 in Mechelen, Belgium. Johannes's wife Maria was baptized 7 Feb 1576 in Antwerp, Belgium, the fourth of eight children born to Antoni Tijron and Catharina Daneels. Her parents' Antoni and Catharina were married Jan 1574 in Antwerp and had a son, Johannes or Hans, baptized there 31 May 1572.

(Note: Here is another source from the Lineage keepers Site with more information about Anthony De Hooges's parents - Anthony De Hooges's parents were JOHANNES DE HOOGES and MARIA {TIJRON} DE HOOGES, who were married on March 21, 1608. The evidence suggests that Johannes was not only a shareholder in the West India Company but its bookkeeper as well, which would help to explain how his son Anthony was able to get a similar post in New Netherland. Johannes was born in the lace-making city of Mechelen, Belgium, probably during the 1590s. His parents were JAN DE HOOGES and CATARINA {DE DRAIJERE} DE HOOGES. Maria was born in Antwerp, Belgium, perhaps in about 1599-1600; her parents were ANTONI TYRON and CATHARINA {KARNEELS} TYRON. We know nothing more about either of these two lines, but according to the Dutch Genealogical Bureau their names indicate that they too most likely came from Belgium. One source has estimated that Antoni was born in 1570 and that Catharina was born in 1575, but these are only estimates. It was presumably from Antoni Tyron that Anthony de Hooges derived his (for the Dutch) rather unusual given name, which he himself often spelled Antonio. The name suggests a possible link between the Tyron/de Hooges family and the Spanish soldiers and officials who occupied the Low Countries (Belgium and the Netherlands alike). These soldiers and officials were there in plenty of time – as early as 1555 – to have intermarried with the Tyrons before Antoni was born, and some of these men remained in the Low Countries instead of returning to Spain. It seems possible, therefore, that Anthony de Hooges had some Spanish blood, but there is no documentary evidence that this is the case.)

Children of Anthony De Hooges and Eva Bradt were-Marichen De Hooges, born Abt. 1648, died Abt. 1690, married 1st Henrick Bries, married 2nd Jacob Lockerman in 1696; Anneken De Hooges, born Abt. 1650 in Albany, NY, died 1688, married Waarner Hornbeck; Catrina De Hooges, born Abt. 1652, married Harmen Rutgers 1688; Johannes Antonie De Hooges, born 1652 in Beverwyck, Albany, NY, died Abt. 1695 in Hurley, Ulster, NY, married Margaretia Post December 04, 1675 in Old Dutch Church, Kingston, NY, NY, born Bet. 1645 - 1663 in Priesland, Hurley, NY, died Bet. 1691 - 1752; Eleanora De Hooges, born Abt. 1655, married 1st William De La Montagne May 19, 1673 in Kingston, NY, married 2nd Cornelis De Duyster Abt. 1692, born Bet. 1639 - 1672, died Bet. 1697 - 1756.

(1) Anthony and Eva (Bradt) De Hooges's daughter Marichen "Maria" De Hooges was born about 1648, Albany, Albany County, New York. She married 1st Hendrick Bries, and married 2nd Jacob Lookerman.

(2) Anthony and Eva (Bradt) De Hooges's daughter Catrina De Hooges born after 1647 in Albany, Albany County, New York, married Harman Rutgers. They had 4 children-Harmanus Rutgers born 1685, married Catherina Meyer; Anthony Rutgers born after 1688; Elizabeth Rutgers born after 1688; and Elsje "Elsie" Rutgers born after 1670, married 1st David Schuyler, and married 2nd Petrus Vas.

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

(1a) Harmen Rutgers and Catrina De Hooges' daughter Elsje "Elsie" Rutgers was born in Manhattan during the early 1670s. On January 1, 1694 she married David D. Schuyler in the Albany Dutch church. At least six of her children were baptized there between 1695 and 1715. Like her husband, she was a prominent church member and a frequent baptism sponsor. David D. Schuyler died in 1715 at age forty-six - leaving her with several small children. In 1722, she married Reverend Petrus Vas in the New York City Dutch Church. Gerardus Duyckinck painted her portrait the next year. She was still alive in 1752.

Elsje's 1st husband David Davidtse Schuyler was born June 11, 1669, and died December 16, 1715 in Albany. He was the son of David Pieterse Schuyler and Catalyntje Ver Planck. He married Elsje Rutgers January 01, 1693/94 in Dutch Church, Albany, NY. David Davidse Schuyler grew up in his father's house on Market Street near the north gate of the Albany stockade. One of the leading Albany fur traders and landholders, David's father died in 1690 when the young man was twenty-years-old. In 1694, he married Elsie Rutgers, the daughter of a prominent Manhattan merchant. The couple had six children all of whom were baptized in the Albany Dutch church where both parents were members. Like other seventeenth-century Albany Schuylers, David Davidse built his fortune in the fur trade and was a prominent Albany merchant residing in the first ward. His status was recognized when he was elected assistant alderman in 1697. On behalf of the Albany government, several times he carried documents to the governor in New York. In 1699, he was elected first ward alderman and served for many years. He was an active council member and often was sent into the Indian country and to Canada on city business. In 1705, he was appointed sheriff of Albany city and county. He served for a year and he was appointed mayor of Albany in 1706. During his mayoralty, Albany began to develop its landed interests at Schaghticoke. Superceded as mayor by Robert Livingston, Jr., David Schuyler was elected alderman for the first ward in 1710. He was re-elected for the last time in September 1715. Perhaps because of the early death of his father and a relatively short life-span of his own, this third son was unlike other prominent Schuyler family members in that he did not acquire extensive investment lands. However, he would have been a partner in the Kaydaderosseras patent had it been confirmed before his untimely death.

Children of David Schuyler and Elsje "Elsie" Rutgers were-Catrina Schuyler, born 1694; David Schuyler, born 1697, married Elizabeth Marschalk April 30, 1719 in Dutch Church, NYC; Hermanus Schuyler, born 1700 in Albany, died December 08, 1748 in NYC, married Jannetje Bancker December 01, 1722 in Dutch Church, Albany, NY, born August 28, 1701, died April 16, 1757 in New York City, NY; Catharina Schuyler, born November 25, 1694 in Albany County, New York, died Aft. 1747, married 1st Igneas Dumond November 13, 1725 in Kingston, Ulster Co., NY, married 2nd Jacobus Dumond October 24, 1741 in Kingston, Ulster Co., NY; Myndert Schuyler, born 1711, married Elisabeth Wessels June 18, 1735 in Dutch Church, NY, NY.

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

(2aa) Thomas and Margriet (Decker) Quick's son Thomas Quick was born in 1734, and died abt. 1795 or 1796. Thomas Quick was called the "Indian Slayer", having murdered 99 people, all Native Americans, including women, young children, and whole families, using revenge as his excuse. James E. Quinlan wrote, "...We have seen and conversed with several aged men who were acquainted with him...They describe him as having been six feet in height; and taken altogether, rather a raw-boned man; his cheek bones were high; his eyes gray and restless; his hair, before it had been silvered by age, was of a dark brown. He was not in the habit of talking very much-in fact, was taciturn and very quiet in his demeanor. His features were grave and dignified, and seldom relaxed into a smile. He was quite temperate, and seldom drank alcoholic liquors, except cider, of which, like all of Holland blood, he was very fond. Tom was taken sick, and was never afterwards able to go from the house of Rosenkrantz, where he died of old age in the year 1795 or 1796. He was buried on the farm of Rosenkrantz. Notwithstanding the assertion that Tom had a beautiful daughter who bore the pretty name of "Omoa," the Indian Slayer was never blessed with wife or child."

The legend goes that in 1756 while Thomas Quick and one of his sons and his son-in-law were working by the river, farming or cutting wood for their mill, they were attacked by Indians from a nearby woods. The Quicks, having no weapons, ran for their lives for the house. The elder Quick was heavy and old (about 66 years old). His sons grabbed him by the arms and tried to hurry him along. He begged the boys to abandon him and flee. One of the sons was wounded by a bullet. The boys at last had to leave their father. The boys escaped by crossing the frozen Delaware River into New Jersey. But they were able to see the Indians kill and scalp the elder Quick and cut a pair of silver buckles from his trousers. One of his sons, Tom Quick, pledged he would revenge the death of his father. He was about 22 years old at the time.

August 28, 1989, the small town of Milford, PA, the seat of Pike County government, erected a monument to honor Tom Quick, the legendary 'Indian Slayer'. This memorial stood along the streets of Milford for over 108 years, until its panels were vandalized in December 1997. Insurance proceeds were designated to pay for the monument's repair, but a successful protest led by Native Americans both near and far kept it from being re-erected. However, this past September, the Milford Borough Council voted unanimously for its restoration and planned its rededication for this coming spring. The Tom Quick monument was originally donated by and "the inscriptions…were made under the direction of Hon. Wm. Bross, of Chicago," (Milford Dispatch, 9/5/1889) a descendant of the father. "And to the efforts of one man, principally, was the success due. Rev. A.S. Gardiner worked persistently and indefatigably, against public sentiment, it may be said, to erect a monument to 'Tom Quick, the Indian Slayer,' and he has succeeded." (Milford Dispatch, 8/29/1889)
