I don't know if you saw my message to Carolee. I have done
extensive research on the Van Slyke line (they were Dutch,
descended from Cornelis Antonissen Van Slyke and his
nephew) Did you visit my website ?

There were several Samuel Van Slykes born in the time
period you gave (1796) with sons Peter. I'm pretty sure
that the one you want is Samuel born ca 1799 to Pieter Van
Slyke and Elizabeth Barheit. This Samuel went to Illinois
and died there Dec 1850. His wife was Elizabeth (surname
unknown to me)

Their son Peter was born in Illnois but died in Kansas. He
is found with his brother George in 1870

If this is the correct Samuel>Peter>Elizabeth, I can take
your Van Slyke lineage back through Samuel's father
(Pieter), grandfather and so on back 6 more generations.

Your line is from Cornelis' nephew Willem Pieterse Van
Slyke who settled in Kinderhook NY. It was Cornelis who
married the Mohawk woman Ots-Toch, not his nephew.

I can also take the spousal lines back several
generations. This is all in the book published Feb. 2005
called "New Netherland Settlers: Willem Pieterse Van Slyke
aka Neef - A genealogy to five generations of the
descendants of Willem Pieterse Van Slyke who settled in New
Netherland (New York) in 1660"
