    Notes 
    • "Jan joined the Bergen, N. J. (Reformed) Church, in June 1682, and his wife became a member October 1, 1683, by certificate from Midwout, Long Island. The couple moved up to Poughkeepsie where some of their children were born, and where most of them lived, and where Jan was Elder, elected June, 1716. The loss of the (Poughkeepsie?) (Reformed) Church baptismal records, 1645-1764, precludes an accurate record of many descendants."
      A Gerrit Willems "Oosteroom" was at Rensselaerwyck in 1633, but does not again appear.
