Subject: Re: [DUTCH-COLONIES] Second wife of James Van Derveer,will proved 15 Feb 1810

John Frelinghuysen was cousin of this family on the Schenck side. Of the
children of Jacobus Van Derveer of Somerset Co (m Phoebe Ditmars), two married
Schenck sisters; Lawrence and Elias. Lawrence married Maria Schenck as his
first wife, and Elias married Catherine, Gertrude m Gen. Frederick
Frelinghuysen of Millstone, executor of Elias's will and parent of John, Theodore and
Frederick. Alchie Schenck married Israel Harris a lawyer and judge of Somerset
County, and Helena married Gen. Peter I Stryker a popular physician at
Somerville. The sister's brother, Dr. Henry Schenck, married Eleanor Hardenburgh,
sister to Maria, who married James (Jacobus) Van Derveer. The coincidence
of the deaths of Winchie Van Stay(James's first wife), and Maria Schenck in
1777(Lawrence's first wife), as well as other deaths in that year in this
family prompted me to ask about deaths in Somerset County in 1777 (quite a while
ago). I was trying to determine if there might have been a small pox
epidemic in that year, as troops carrying the disease were moving through the area.
Best wishes, Kris Liddle

Oh! My goodness Pam!!
Many thanks for your response to me AND Cynthia.
I have a comment or two regarding James Vanderveer's second wife, Maria
At the website you provided, Maria's parents are listed as "James
Juffrow Unk". I believe that is erroneous
Based on the super info provided by Kris Liddle, as follows:
...The second Jacobus (James) Van Derveer was proved Feb. 15, 1810.
It names his ... daughter Dinah wife of Daniel Vail,
children of dr. Phoebe, deceased: ...
the Dutch Reformed Church of Bedminster, and
his father-in-law, *Jacob Hardenberg* (deceased).
Executors were *John Frelinghuysen*, ...
I've recently compiled an enormous amount of research on the Frelinghuysen
I suggest the following for the 2nd wife of Jacobus (James) Van Derveer,
I can't claim knowledge of her given name, but since he identifies his
as Jacob Hardenberg, I believe her to be the daughter of Rev. Jacob "James"
and Dinah Van Bergh Frelinghuysen, widow of Rev. John^2 [Theodorus^1]
One of the executors of the will, above, John Frelinghuysen, was probably
[>Frederick^3 <John^2 <Theodorus^1] Frelinghuysen, the grandson of Dinah Van
Frelinghuysen Hardenberg and the great grandson of the immigrant and
(dare I say "notorious"?) Dom. Theodore Jacobus Frelinghuysen.
