I GIVE THANKS TO ALL THE FOLLOWING RELATIVES AND FRIENDS WHO HAVE HELPED ME IN OBTAINING A LOT OF THE INFORMATION ON THE FOLLOWING RELATIVES.

Thanks to EDISON CANINE for bringing up the Canine Genealogy back in 1935. He was a retired professor from Indiana State at Terre Haute, Indiana. He did a lot of research to start this Genealogy back in 1935. The rest of the Genealogy was brought up to date by ROBERT LLOYD CANINE and his many friends and relatives. The search is never ending. I now have a complete copy of EDISON CANINE'S Manuscript from the Virgo Library in Terre Haute, Indiana...

Thanks to the Encarda 97 CD, for their information and pictures. Thanks to the Mormon Church for their information. Thanks to ROBERT CANINE'S love for putting all this information together, plus getting the opportunity to meet one's relatives and learn how we survived the past. Now the future is in our descendents hands. November 11, 1998. (Still working on Genealogy 4/8/2002...

A special thanks to RALPH AUSTIN CANINE and SUSAN (CANINE) ANDREWS for sending me almost a whole copy of the original Genealogy.

I also received a letter from GERADUS P.M. CONIJN. She has changed her last name to Conyn due to some restrictions with her bank. She is from Holland and there are a lot of Dutch writings in her letter that I am trying to decipher. She says there is no letter Y in the Holland Alphabet.

I want to thank JAN AND BILL SLOCUM for the work and donations of some of the pictures, the marriage certificate of William Canine and Eliza Snyder. Also the picture of Beatrice Canine and her husband and the bio on Beatrice and the information on the Sebring families. And the work on the KIT CARSON genealogy, plus much more. I can not believe that she came up with more information that I did. Also thanks to Bill for all the Jokes.

Also I want to thank ROBERTA CANINE for her information on her family. And some new dates and corrections and donations. My wife an I made a visit to see them in the year of 2001 and they had a lot of interesting stories and took us on a tour of the area of Twin Falls, Idaho.

THE SUEBERING, SEERING, SEBRING Genealogy.

Spelling as we know it today was also not in common practice. Many of our earlier records show the same name for the same person spelled many different ways. Taking a cue from the "SEBRING COLLECTIONS". We assume that our first know ancestor, ROELOEF LUKASEN used the spelling that was first used at New Amsterdam, that is SUEBERINGH. Little is known about ROELOAF SUEBERINGN, except that five of his children emigrated from the Netherlands and settled in New Amsterdam, which is today known as New York. It appears that DAMBERTJE and her husband, Captain Jan Striker, were the first members of the family to emigrate, doing so in 1651 or 1652. Later an older sister, Willemptse and her husband, STEVEN COERTE VAN VOORHEES, and her brother, JAN ROELOFAE SUEBERINGH, emigrated to New Amsterdam on the "DE BONTE COE" (SPOTTED COW), arriving in 1660. The VAN VOORHEES established a large following of descendents, as a look at any large telephone book will attest. Later two more brothers, JACOB ROELOFSE and DANIEL ROELOFSE SUEBERINGH, emigrated to New Amsterdam, married and settled in the New World. As we are direct descendants of JAN ROELOFSE, we will only follow his family line down to the fifth generation leaving out all of the lines of the brothers and sisters.

One can only marvel at the courage these brave souls mustered to cross the great and stormy Atlantic Ocean in a tiny ship not knowing what was in store for them once they reached their destination. When one realizes that ships in the 1660's were not a great deal larger that some of our small fishing vessels and with few if any accommodations to sleep, eat and live. It meant plenty of hardships during a two to two and one half months crossing. Once they landed they had to provide some sort of shelter and find a supply of food. The men had to go to the forest, fell trees and build shelters while the women gathered wild vegetables, roots, and berries to go along with the wild game that the men were sometimes able to obtain.

Our ancestor, JAN ROELOFSE, met and married ADRIANNA POHEMIUS, the daughter of the Reverend JOHANNES THEODORUS POLHEMIUS and CATHRINA VAN DER WERVEN. ADRIANNA was apparently born on the Island of Itamarca in Brazil while her father was on assignment to the Brazilian area by the Dutch Reformed Church while the Dutch had control of Brazil. When the Portuguese took over the country in 1654, the Dutch inhabitants were forced to either swear allegiance to the King of Portugal and accept the Catholic faith or flee. For some reason JOHANNES POLHEMIUS and his family embarked on different ships. The ship bearing his wife and family made it safely to the Netherlands, but the ship JANANNES was aboard, was waylaid by pirates and after several adventures finally arrived at New Amsterdam. JOHANNES found a need for a preacher at this spot and sent for his family. They sailed on the good ship "GULDEEN OTTER", leaving Amsterdam on June 14, 1656 and arriving at New Amsterdam on September 4, 1656. JOHANNES was united with his family after nearly two and one half years.

There were at that time three Dutch settlements on the Western end of what is today known as Long Island. The were called Midwout, Amersfoort, and Brueckelen. Later they became known, respectively, as the villages of Flatbush, Flatland, and Brooklyn. These villages were without a Church or a minister and appearance of JOHANNES POLHEMIUS at that time was most fitting. According to the Dutch Reformed Church records, a Church was built about 1659 and measured 60 X 28 feet and was 14 feet high. This was the first church on Long Island and the Reverend POLHAMIUS was the first minister.

About 1680 JAN ROELOFSE SUEBERINGH (OR Seberinge as he later spelled his name) and his family moved to Bergen, New Jersey. His son ROELOF returned to Midwout sometime around 1700 and married. He also married a second time, but the dates of either marriages are unknown. However, between 1705 and 1709, he moved to the area near Raritan, New Jersey, where he died in 1756. It is reported that his son, CORNELIUS, (1703-1786) inherited the homestead and spent his life at that location. CORNELIUS'S will set forth in the Somerset County Historical Society Quarterly shows his residence as Hillsborough Township in Somerset County.

It is interesting to note that the family stayed in an area of approximately 50 miles in diameter for around 130 years. Of course roads were few and travel was either by horseback or by foot and fifteen miles was a good day's travel by those means.

CORNELIUS and ANNETJE VAN ARSDALEN had four children of record, although there is some evidence that another daughter was involved. The only son, RULOF (1755-1815) was baptized July 20, 1755 and is the tie of the SEBERN and SEBURN families to the SEBRING family.

RULOF grew up and was married and settled in Somerset County. During the Revolutionary War he served as a private in the Somerset County Militia during the period (1775-1783), in the company of Captain COCNRAD TEN EYCK. He is listed by the new surname has not been determined, and lived on the South branch of the Raritan River. After his father's death, he assumed ownership of the 240 acres willed to him by his father. This he farmed until 1793, when he disposed of 100 acres. In 1794 he disposed of the remaining 140 acres. Personal property composed of four horses and two cattle was all that was listed on the tax records for 1794. In 1795 there were no tax entries for RULOF SEBRING. It is assumed that this was the year that he took his family to Kentucky as a RULEF SEBRING, with two horses and four cattle and was listed on the Mercer County, Kentucky, tax roll under the date of June 14, 1795. He was listed as RULEF SEBERN with two horses and five cattle on June 9, 1796 and as REULUF SEBERN with two horses on June 22, 1797.

Apparently along about 1795, the lure of greener pastures in Kentucky took much of the Dutch community away from the New Jersey area. In 1793, PETER CARNINE, husband of CHRISTINA SEBRING, moved to Mercer County, Kentucky and shortly thereafter HARMONUS VAN DERRIPE and CATHERLINE SEBRING and DENNIS VANDINE BICE and ANNETJE SEBRING followed. There is some evidence that these families may have spent some time at the Conwago Settlement in Pennsylvania. When all of his sisters had left for Kentucky, RULOF packed up and moved to Mercer County, too. While methods of travel had improved somewhat from the early 1700's, there were still few passable roads through the wilderness. The family apparently had a wagon and two horses. The children were not too old and probably the older ones walked most of the way from New Jersey to Kentucky. As MARY ANN was born in September 1795 without a doubt PEMMETJS or PHOEBE was heavy with child during the journey. Again we marvel at the fortitude of these people and their willingness to endure hardships to attain the freedoms they so cherished.
As noted above, RULOF SEBRING was entered on the tax rolls of Mercer County, Kentucky on June 14, 1795. He was in Mercer County for the next two tax years, but as not tax record is available for 1798, we just have to guess that he was still there. In 1799 he appears on the Shelby County tax rolls as ROLIF SEBORN. In 1801 he was shown as farming 208 acres of second class land on Floyd Fork. (Floyd Fork runs along the border between Shelby and Jefferson Counties.) At that time he had three horses with one other male under 21, but over 16 at home. This was CORNELIUS, born in 1782. The land in question had been entered, surveyed, and patented by LUKE VAN ARSDALEN. Whether this man was a relative or not is not known, but ROLIF'S or RALPH'S mother was a VAN ARSDALEN. Ralph was shown on subsequent tax rolls as RALPH SEBOURN in 1809. He was shown in the 1810 census as RALPH SEBURN. He died in 1815 and his estate was probated in April 1815. CORNELIUS and RALPH JR were appointed administrators of the estate.

RALPH'S widow, PHOEBE with their two daughters and two sons still at home, continued to live in Shelby County. We find her listed in the 1820 census, but she was missing in the 1830 Census, so we assume that she died during that period. Her youngest daughter married JOHN D. SMOCK in1818 and her other daughter, HANNA, married PETER CARNINE. In 1830.HANNAH was also known to the CARNINE family as "Aunt Mary". In March of 1829 the estate of RALPH SEBURN JR (second son of ROLIF SEBRING) was probated. HARVEY, the youngest son, was appointed administrator of the estate. JOHN V, the third son, had moved to Jefferson County, Indiana, about 1814 and CORNELIUS the oldest son and his family followed about ten years later.

Evidence gathered from the census, tax rolls, probate records, and marriage records, show that the DENNIS VANDINE BICE ANNETJE SEBRING; the HARMONUS VAN DERRIPE CATHERINE SEBRING; and the PETER CARNINE CHRISTINA SEBRING families all moved to Mercer or Shelby Counties about the same time the RULIF SEBRING and his family did. It is therefore evident that the RALPH SEABURN of Shelby County and RULIF SEBRING of Somerset County, New Jersey, are one and the same person.

He and his wife, PHOEBE, raised their family in Shelby County and while burials in that time period are almost entirely without record in the county, it is pretty certain that they were buried there. The oldest daughter MARRY (AUTIE) married JOHN MONTFORT and settled in the county. The eldest son, CORNELIUS, married MARY SMOCK, the daughter of a neighbor, JACOB SMOCK. The second son, RALPH apparently died unmarried. The next daughter HANNA, (also know as Aunt Mary) married PETER CARNINE, a wealthy farmer and a brother in law of her father RALPH. The next son, JOHN V, MOVED TO Jefferson County, Indiana, and married CATHERINE SMOCK, a sister of MARY SMOCK, and another daughter of JACOB SMOCK. The youngest son, HARVEY, married MARY ROBINSON, farmed in Shelby County for a number of years, then moved to Jefferson County, Indiana. Theyoungest daughter, MARY ANN, married JOHN D. SMOCK, a distant relative of MARY and CATHERINE, and moved to Johnson County, Indiana.

NOTES: From THE VAN VOORHEES FAMILY IN AMERICA). Drenthe was the most sparsely populated Dutch province, economically depressed, but with rising taxes. Beginning in 1651, residents of rural soutwest Drenthe began emigrating to New Netherland, where the largest town, New Amsterdam, was about the same in population as Drenthe's largest town of Meppel (ca.1,200). Steven Coerte with his wife, children aged 22,10, 8, 6, 4, 2 and son-in-law, Jan Kiers, sailed on the ship de bonte koe (the Spotted Cow) on 15 April 1660. They were not venturing into the unknown: already in New Netherland were his wife's brother Jan and her sister Lambertje, wife of Jan Strycker, and several relatives of Strycker. In fact there were 19 people from southwest Drenthe in New Netherland before the Bonte Coe brought 39 more. In 1662, another 23 arrived. By 1664 there were 108, most of them on western Long Island, others along the Hudson River Valley as far north as Fort Orange (Albany), and a few as far south as Delaware.

Steven Coerte at various times in Drenthe had rented farms in Ruinen, Hees, Oosterboer, and Meppel. He went from leasing a fourteen acre farm at Foorhees to being a landowner, buying a farm in New Amersfort six months after his arrival in New Netherland. No penniless immigrant, he paid 3400 guilders. By 1675 he had 30 morgens (63 acres), 15 cattle, 4 horses and 2 hogs. He is listed on the assessment roll of Amersfort in 1676 and 1683 with 55 morgans of land. His son Coert had an even larger farm, as would the other sons in time. In short, life on the American frontier was probably better than in the Dutch back country, with larger farms and higher wages. He andhis wife were members of the Flatbush Ref. Ch. In 1677. He was sometimes listed as Steven Koert Van Voorhees.

NOTES: THE TALL SYCAMORE OF THE WABASH (Quote). Therefore, it is peculiarly significant that as one of the men who was to represent the interests of the west in legislative councils for the remainder of the century, Voorhees should have been born into a typical frontier family with its traditional background at a time when these issues were slowly taking shape.

The ancestry and early life of Daniel Voorhees are representative of thousands of his fellow Buckeyes and Hoosiers. He came of hardy pioneer stock. Starting with the migration of the Van Voorhis family from Holland and their settlement in the environs of New Amsterdam, his forebearers had helped to make American history.

His great-great-grandfather, Peter, had fought in the Revolution and his great- grandfather, Stephen was one of the band of colonists who fought under Washington/s command at Princeton and Monmouth. His grandfather, Peter, had been born in New Jersey, but early in life had joined the migration to Kentucky where he settled about 1790 near Harrodsburg.

In 1796, Peter married Lemma Van Arsdale, who had been born at Bryants's Station, a Kentucky fort built as a defense against the Indians. Her father had fought at Blue Licks and elsewhere under Daniel Boone. In 1798, while Peter and Lemma Voorhees were living in Mercer county, Kentucky, Daniel's father, Stephen, was born. The family moved in 1805 to Butler County, Ohio, where Stephen lived in his younger days.

In 1822 Stephen Voorhees married Rachel Elliott, a woman of Irish descent who,s birthplace was in Baltimore County, Maryland. She was a tall, dignified and reserved woman with dark hair and eyes. She was an educated person who took it upon herself to teach her own children. Many people believe that Daniel Voorhees inherited his impassioned oratory and ardent temperament from this side of the family, probably from his mother's brother, Arthur Elliott. To Stephen and Rachel Elliott was born on September 26, 1827, their fourth child, Daniel Wolsey Voorhees.

Soon, However, the family continued in the great migration of the period, moving when Daniel was but two months old, to a farm located in Van Buren township, Fountain County, in western Indiana, about twenty miles from the Illinois line and ten miles from Covington, a section of the state that had been settled for some time.
They lived in a log house for about four years and it was replaced by a brick house, the first in the community.

He did not like working on a farm. He was more interested in his schooling and his father being a scholar, soon discovered that his son was destined for something else. His father was hoping his son would go to college and become a minister. His father, Stephen, was a man of means and sent his son to Asbury in 1845. He studied for four years, with a creditable record. The was a member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, the Delta chapter having been established in 1845. He was likewise a member of the Philological Society from the year of his entrance into Asbury.

Most of his studies consisted of declamations, original essays, orations and debates. In his early years of college, Daniel powers as an orator were apparent. After he graduated Daniel began to study law in the offices of Lane an Wilson in Crawfordsville, Indiana. The company had built up a lucrative business. Another milestone in the career of Voorhees was his marriage to Anna Hardesty in 1850, as the culmination of a college romance. She was the daughter of Reese Hardesty, one of the founders of Asbury, and had just graduated from Mrs. Larrabee's academy for young ladies, in Greencastle.

Voorhees decided to strike out on his own, so he opened a law office in 1850 in Covington. His reputation was heard around and Edward Hannegan, a local lawyer who had already served two terms in the House and one in the Senate, asked Voorhees to join him as a partner. He rapidly made a reputation for himself and in 1853, was appointed by Governor Joseph A. Wright as prosecuting attorney for the circuit criminal court in which he resided.

He served some time in this office and was then appointed the United States District Attorney for Indiana by President Buchanan in 1858. In 1860, he was elected to Congress. He served until 1897. For two weeks prior to his death he was ill, but he continued work on the manuscript of, "The Public Men of My Times, hoping that he might live to complete the task in order that his daughter might profit financially thereby he completed the sections on Kossuth, Lincold and Grant the evening preceding his death. He finally died on April 10, 1897 at his home on Maryland avenue in Washington, D.C., just a stone throw from the Library of Congress, fo whose erection he had been largely responsible. The burial was made at Terre Haute, Indiana.

He left four children, two of them engaged in the law practice, Reese N. Voorhees in New York City and Charles S. Voorhees, a former delagate from the Territory of Washington, in Spokane. The third son, James Paxton Voorhees, was a sculptor and author in New York City. The sole daughter, Hallie Voorhees was a hostess of her father, since her mothers death.

Note: This is just a small portion of the Van Voorhees, Voorhees, Voorhis family. I have sent for the complete Genealogy.

A VISIT TO HEES, A PART OF THE NETHERLANDS IN THE PROVINCE OF DRENTHE.

Because of a very tight schedule, my family and I were limited to two days in the Province of Drenthe, early in July, but we were able to have the thrilling experience of finding the very house which was the home of our common ancestor 300 years ago in the village of Hess.

After leaving Amsterdam my family and I drove over the great dyke to the northern region of the country. At Assen, I met a Mr. WERKMAN, RYKSARCHIVARIS, who kindly showed me the records of our family that were available in his office. The earliest records are found in a volume entitled, "Lidmaten, Gedoopten Howelijken, 1682-1766." Mr. Werkman informed me that around 1600 the three farms, Voorhees, Middlehees, and Achterhees, were turned over to the Province of Drenthe. According to his information, these three farms were not owned by the family of Steven Coerten, but the family lived on them and paid taxes (rent), to the Province. In a tax book, dated 1700, the name Jan Coerten is mentioned as a taxpayer in Voorhees -evidence that he was a member of the family.

Mr. Werkman furnished me with a map of the Province of Drenthe. It is quite detailed and shows the village of Hees, Located about two kilometers southeast of Ruinen. At Ruinen we visited Rev. K. Mulder, Herv. Pastorie of the church, some knowledge of the history of our family, but had no records of the church. We were informed that a Mr. J. Poordman, Lindeiside 100, Meppel, Holland, was the author of a book dealing with the life of Steven Coerten. However, we were unable to locate Mr. Poordman.

As we approached the village of Hees, we were amazed to see the sign, "Hees" at a road intersection. As far as we could tell there were only two houses in the vicinity, one of which was referred to by the natives as, "Voorhees". We found living in this house, a quaint, thatched roof abode. A farmer, Mr. De Heer H. Joosten, and his family. He was very polite and happy to show us about the place. It appears that a portion of the house is original and that the newer sections have been added during the years. It was quite difficult for me to communicate with Mr. Joosten because of language limitations, but he did tell me a legend that I pass along to you. He said that the story is told in this part of Drenthe, that early in the 17th century, Steven Coerten found in a mound nearby, some silver that had been buried by the Spanish and that it was with funds so obtained that Steven Coerten was able to come to America.

MEMORIES OF THE VORHEES

By Elva Voorhees-Minish. 1971

John (K)'s wife, Margaret Canine, had come to Iowa with her parents and seven brothers and sisters from Indiana. First settling on a farm eight miles east of Crawfordsville. November 2, 1852 they moved to Mahaska County, Iowa settling on a farm of 180 acres on the Keokuk and Des Moines State Road near Pella. They had driven through from Indiana with two wagons and one carriage, bringing eight cows with them. Margaret drove the carriage. The farm had a small house on it, with one room frame with a shed kitchen. When they moved in, the other family had not moved out, they had four children. A big snow fell and stayed on all winter, and the two families and the 12 children lived together for four weeks. Margaret had two other brothers born after the family moved to Iowa.

John K and Margaret Van Voorhees had eight children. Mary Jane lived only one and a half years; John Koert, my tather who married Allgenett Ryan; Elbert Stotoph Dumont who married Mary Ellen Seltzer; Lucinda Alice, who lived only one yeaar; Dora Ellen who first married Samuel J. Kent and then John McCrea; Frank Canine who married Nellie Croll; Melvan Ryearson, who married Ora Gay Chrisman; and Fred who first married Grace Kimmell the Ellen E. Van Buskirk.

John Koert, my father, was named after his father and grandfather. The latter made his home with his son. To lessen the confusion of names, my father was always called by his initials, J K, his father John (K) he used this initial to make his name look better, he thought; and his grandfather was John.

John (K) my grandfather, was a large handsome man who was always admired and looked up to in the community. He owned a large farm between Pella and Oskalooosa and always carried a large herd of black Angus cattle and raised many good horses. Near neighbors were the Ruans, Smiths, and his in-laws the Canines.

When JK was thirteen years old, his father made a great many bricks from clay found on the farm with which he planned to build a large house. In 1871, one hundred years ago, a very large house, 66' by 54' was built and finished late that year. This house still stands and one can still see in the slate roof on the front of the house, the numbers of the year it was built. He also built a brick house for his father-in-law, just down the road a little way. Two years before, John Smith built a fine large wooden house about one mile south. This one had a cupola on the top with six windows on each of the four sides from which one could see for man miles.

For some reason or other, a spite story got started about these two men, that Voorhees built a larger, more elaborate house than Smith because Smith had received the prestige because of his new home. An article in the Des Moines Register about 1950 told this story in detail, showing the two homes. You will find this story copied elsewhere in this brochure. With an etching of the Smith home made for Iowa Power, by Wm. J. Wagner, a spite story hangs with the picture.
These stories always made my mother, Allgenett Ryan Voorhees, very angry for she says there wasn't an once of truth in them. She should have been qualified to know for the Mr. Voorhees was her father-in-law, she lived in that neighborhood for a number of years, and one of Smith's daughter's married her brother. She says her father-in-law did not make the new home just because Mr. Smith had, but because they needed one this large. Mr. Smith and Mr. Voorhees were very good friends and neighbors.

The front double doors of the Voorhees house opened into a hall with a beautiful curved walnut banister up along the long flight of stairs around the corner and along the length of the upstairs hall. The parlor was at the side of this hall in the middle front of the second floor; beyond this the parlor bedroom. A back stairs led up to the boys bedrooms from the sitting room and back-back stairs led up to the hired help quarters. The sitting room was in the middle front of the first floor, a large dining room-kitchen, pantry and large summer kitchen was back of this. There was a large low closet back of the cook stove, used as a boot closet, warm and dry. On the other side of the house were two bedrooms, one for John (K) and Margaret and one for daughter, Dora. The front porch wrapped across the front and both sides of the house, while out in the back was a very large porch, at least 12' by 30', where much of the family life took place in the summer.

The third floor of the house was actually a high attic. Round windows were spaced around the outside walls. In between some of these were pipes through the wall, behind which were placed beehives. The bees could come in and out, making their honey. When Grandma wanted honey, someone simply went up into the attic, removed the back of a hive and helped themselves. The top of the attic was flat, reached by a trap door. Originally, the house top had a railing around it with round sphere-like tops capping the corner posts. These were also around the front porch. Some of these can still be found in the attic, along with the original outside shutters. These were veery heavy and at least two inches thick.

All of the woodwork on the inside of the house had to be made by hand with hand-powered tools. Much of the window wood work was grooved and had fancy designs on it. The carpenter stayed all winter in the Voorhees home, receiving his board, room and washing, and only got the sitting room finished. The upstairs parlor, front hall and parlor bedroom were to have more elaborate woodwork made. But when it had taken so long to make the sitting room woodwork, Grandpa John (K) said, No! This is good enough for anybody and so you make the rest of the house like the sitting room.!

The Voorhees family was of Holland descent, but had been in the United States a good many years, coming west f rom New York and New Jersey in the very early times. Grandpa always needed more help to run his big operation. He would pay the transportation (boat and rail) for Dutchmen to come to Pella from Holland and live and work to repay this money back to him. Many young farmers in later years would give credit and thanks to grandpa for their start in the United States. The newest "green Dutchman", (as the boys called them), always sat next to grandpa at the table, so he could help them and also teach them the English language. He would hand them bread, say the word and they repeated it. Needless to say the Voorhee's boys did their share of making life miserable for these green hands. There was a large ice house adjoining the back of the wood house, which joined back of the house. This was always filled from the Skunk river each winter with the help of the neighbors. In the summer the young folks enjoyed many freezers of home made ice cream. My sister, Stella, who was the same age as her uncle Fred Voorhees, told about having ice cream on Sunday afternoon. Everyone gathered on the large back porch to help make it. One Sunday the Voorhees boys dished up a large bowl of it, gave it to one of the new Dutchman, along with a large spoon. They told him to take a big spoonful, because it was very good. Of course, when he obliged the cold went to his head. Dropping the dish, he grabbed his head and ran out into the orchard crying, "you kilt me, you kilt me."

My sister and I visited the country cemetery nearby. A very large evergreen tree grew beside Grandma's, (Margaret Canine Voorhees), John (K)'s wife) parents' graves. Stella told how as a little girl (she spent many summers with grandma, who seemed to enjoy her namesake, Stella Margaret), she and grandma drove up to the cemetery with the horse and buggy with a little tree to plant on her parents graves. This was the same tree. When great grandma died they had tried to get word to her sister in Ohio. But since no word had been received, they were having the funeral and were about to finish, when someone called out, "Here comes the livery team from Pella on a dead run." The sister had arrived! They opened the casket; the sister knelt beside it in grief. It had started to snow and Stella said she remembered how she thought it strange that it didn't' melt on great grandmas'' face. Stella rode along with Grandma to an uncle'' home where the Ohio sister was going to stay. When they got out of the surrey the Ohio aunt'' pocket book, (called a purse today), flew open and what a wonderful time Stella had helping to pick it all up and touching all the lovely strange things.

One amusing story concerns Grandma's old Rhode Island Red rooster. It was getting old, but had always been a fighter. The boys got tired of warding him off while they were working. One day Frank became very provoked with the old fellow, picked him up and wrung his neck then threw him behind the wood house, knowing his mother would scold him for killing her favority rooster. Toward evening while choring, imagine his surprise, when from behind the wood pile, the old rooster came walking out, shaking himself as if to get his bearings.

Grandma was a fine housekeeper and managed her home and family in the best manner. But she always had a neighbor girl or one from Pella to live in and work for a small wage. These girls learned to keep a good house, cook and sew, but never were they allowed to set and waste time. Always there was sewing, mending, knitting or if that was all done, carpet rags to sew or quilts to piece.

In 1898, Granpa had a stroke while out in the field working and died shortly afterwards. The older boys were gone and the younger boys coundn't seem to manage the farm and stock. In two years, grandma decided to sell out and move to Pella and be a "lady". So the lovely brick house was sold and out of the family.

Grandma wanted to be a town lady all the way and even wanted to be buried in the town cemetery. So she had grandpa moved from the country cemetery to the one in Pella. Later she married a widower, Mr. Gardener, a nice, quiet gentleman without much money. He did not live too many years. She got so she needed someone to look after her, so she visited around in her children's homes for a few years and finally lived with her son, Frank, and his wife, Nellie, until she died in 1921. She had become entirely blind in her last years.

NOTE: There are many more stories, additional notes and pictures of the old home and writings about some of the people that bought these homes and lived in them and where their relatives now live in them. This green bound book called, "VOORHEES GENEALOGY", is being held by Willard Canine, who lives in Des Moines, Iowa. (dated this date, October 7, 2000 by Robert Canine who lives in Phoenix, Arizona, who was born in Des Moines, Iowa.) It has a lot more reading than I wanted to add to the Canine Genealogy, but I wanted to at least let you know about some of our relatives and how they lived back then.

DESCENDANTS OF THOMAS QUICK (CUYCK)

2. THEUNIS THOMAZEN QUICK. (Thomas Quick Cuyck). Born. Abt 1600 in Naarden, N. Holland. Died. April 19, 1666 in New York City, New York. He married BELITJEGEN JACOBUS on March 09, 1625 in Narrden N. Holland, Netherlands. Born. Abt 1604 in Naarden, Netherland, Holland. Died. abt 1675 in New York, New York.

NOTES: THEUNIS THOMAZEN QUICK, (The record of this marriage can still be found in The Naarden Church in Holland). sometimes signed his name; THEUNIS THOMASEN QUICK DE MATZELAER VAN NARRDEN, when translated, literally means THENUIS the mason from Naarden. He is first mentioned in New Amsterdam, when they had their daughter, HILLEGONDE, and was baptized in the New Amsterdam Dutch Church on November 23, 1640. How long they had been in America then is not known, but there is a record in the Dutch Church in Naarden, Holland of baptism of a daughter, the eldest child in July 23, 1628. Record of birth of all other children, except Jacob is to be found in New York.

So it was sometime between the years, 1628 and 1640, that they came to New Amsterdam. In proof that our first ancestors in down town real estate, in the heart of what has since, become the center of the financial and business district of New York City. We find many transactions gleaned from Stoke's Iconography of Manhatten, Island, all of these on record in Archives of New York. Purchases of real estate and Deeds found in the (Lieder A. Deeds, N.Y. Co.), togeather with discriptions of same. February 22, 1659. Among early settlers on Whitehall street, in 1645, THEUNIS THOMASSEN VAN NAARDEN, was granted a lot on the present southeast corner of Whitehall and Markerfield streets, having a front on Whitehall street of about 100 feet. (Valentine's History of N.Y.). This is the site of the present, Produce Exchange building in New York City, New York.

THEUNIS THOMASSEN QUICK, being a mason by trade, had a hand in the construction of old Trinity Church, that still adorns the landscape on one of the most prominet corners of down town New York City. His grandson, CORNELIUS QUICK, had a contract for supplying the stone for the edifice. (Stone's Icon., Vol 4, Page 393), February 17, 1696. Cornelius Quick and Isaac Anderson agree with the vestry of Trinigy Church, to cut and bring stones from Monnius Island, for the period of one month, beginning next week, at one shilling and 3 half-pence a load. They will continue as long as necessary, for ye building of ye Church. THEUNIS QUICK had several grants of land from Bovernor, Peter Stuyvesand. He took the oath of allegiance, on October 26, 1664, at intervals, between,1640-1648. (This couple had five children.

NEELTJE CORNELIS on March 24, 1655 in New Amsterdam, New York. Born. Abt 1634 in Naarden, Holland. Died. abt 1710 in New Amsterdam, New York. (They had 5 children).

NOTES: JACOM THEUNISZEN QUICK was called the "runner" and he sometimes he signed his name DE LOOPER. His name appears frequently in court and notarial records at Albany during these years. Fernow states that in 1674, Jacob had a residence on the West side of Broad Street in New York, between Wall and Veaver streets, and was designated as a "baker", showing that he was a baker, or had a bakery business there in addition to his many other interests. Jacob was frequently referred to as Van Narrden, making it reasonable to believe that he as well as his sister, WEYNTJE, was born in Naarden, Holland Jacob was married in the Dutch Reformed Church, at New Amsterdam on March 24, 1655, to NEELTIE CORNELIS, a daughter of GUILLIANE CORNELILIE, the ancestor of the Cornel family in America. Jacob took the oath of allegiance in 1664. He was given a large tract of land. Over 4000 acres in Somerset County, New Jersey. Deed signed by his Majesty, George II. This deed also carried signatures of Tribal marks of Indian chiefs of the Deleware Tribe, one of the Figure of a Wolf, another the Figure of a Turtle. This deed is still in possession of Jacob.

4. THEUNIS (TEUNIS) JACOBSON QUICK. (Jacob Theuniszen Quick, Thenis Thomazen Quick, Thomas Quick Cuyck). Born. Abt 1663 in New York, New York. Died. April 25, 1739 in New York City, New York.

They resided in the North Ward, tax lists 1685-1699. The New York Sun of April 09, 1838, records together with photographs, the coming to light of the large silver bowl made for Teunis and his good wife, by a Dutch Silversmith, CORNELIUS KIERSTEDE. The bowl bears the inscription, or rather the initials of its owners, thus, T,Q,V. It is now in the possession of the New York Metropolitian Museum.

5. PETRUS QUICK. (Theunis (Teunis) Jacobson Quick, Jacob Theuniszen Quick, Thenis Thomazen Quick, Thomas Quick Cuyck). Born. November 02, 1707 in Harlingen, Somerset, New Jersey.

THE DEMAREST FAMILY GENEALOGY
Generation No. 17.

DAVID DES MAREST (DEMAREE). ( Jean Des Marets, Francois Des Marets, Jacques Des Marets, Jacques Des Marets, Jean Des Marets, Baldwin VIII. Des Marets, Baldwin VII. Des Marets,Baldwin VI. Des Marets, William Des Marets, Baldwin V. Des Marets, Baldwin IV. Des Marets, Baldwin III. Des Marets, Baldwin II. Des Marets, Baldwin I. Des Marets, Jean, Baron of Bousis). Born in 1620, a French Huguenot in Beauchamp Picardy, France. Died. October 16, 1695 in Hackensack, Bergen, New Jersey. Married MARIE SOHIER on July 24, 1643 on Island of Walcheron, Zealand. Born. 1620-1623 in Nieppe, Hainault, France.

NOTES: He and his wife and four children (who were born in Manneheim, Germany) came to America in 1663 in the ship, "Bontekou" or called the "Spotted Cow". He joined the Frency Colony in New Amsterdam. In 1677 he purchased from the Indians 4000 acres of land in Bergen County, New Jersey, on the Hackensaack River and the Carteret heirs perfected his title to it. His purpose was to found a pure French Colony and to preserve both the language and the customs of the French, but being surrounded by the Dutch, neither the French language nor the Church survived. In 1696 this church with its distinctively French organization was broken up by the absorption process.

The last French pastor, M. Daille, removed to Boston and the tide of Dutch immigrants swallowed up all that was distinctively French in the Colony. The seventeen century finds these Huguenots and the Dutch Reformed already in New York, on Long Island and in Northern New Jersey, and both branches of the Raritan. Industrious, enterprising and honest, they rapidly transformed the wilderness into fruitful fields, and blooming orchards and gardens. The Dutch Reformed Church in America was the fruit of their religious system. They brought their Church, red with the blood of Martyrs, with them from beyond the Ocean, and the peaceable fruits of righteousness everywhere began to appear. The Huguenots became so thoroughly incorporated with the Dutch colonist as in large measure to lose national identity. The Dutch was the language of the Church and of social life, till long after the Flag of Holland had ceased to wave over the colonies. A new Holland had arisen along the Hudson and the Raritan, and the customs language, religion and habit of the Mother Land. AA century of progress followed. The Dutch Reformed in New Jersey had a kind of common center at New Brunswick. But some force, was it inbred antipathy to the dominant Briton? Was impelling the Dutch to the Westward. We are concerned with those Dutch Colonists, who about 1765 began to pour from New Jersey into the extreme West of the, then civilized world, York County, In South Eastern Pennsylvania. And there they laid the ffoundation of those communities, one day to be famous in the annals of the Keystone State.

These Settlers, it is known, formed the famous Conewago Colony. The Demarasts came from Bergen about 1771. The first baptism took place in 1768, the last May 14, 1793. The last year of the war was a distressing one for the Conewago colonists. The crops failed and the cattle perished. In 1768, the Indians burned 35 houses and terrified the people. (Penn. Archives, Vols. X.XI and XII). In 1780 fifty heads of families had gone to Mercer County, Kentucky, by 1800, Conewago was so depleted could hardly furnish any congregation for the Sunday service. The Dutch were too late to take up good lands in Kentucky, they had to purchase. But the Dutchman does willingly relax his hold on terra firma. Very soon the new colonists were looking out for new lands and purchasing them. The old County records of Mercer County has noted the date of recording purchases of land made by PETER DEMAREE in 1791 and SAMUEL DEMAREE in 1792. You will notice that the name has now become DEMAREE instead of DEMAREAT, spelling it as it is pronounced. To go back to DAVID DES MAREST the forebearer of the Demaree family in America, he took a prominet part in the political doings of the day. He was a delegate to the Provincial Assembly at New Netherlands. He and his wife made their joint will at New Haarlem in 1672. (NOTE: I have a Pedigree chart showing the DEMAREST family going back as far as to the year of, 1017 and the name of BARON OF BOUSIS. The name has been changed many times).

THE CONYN GENEOLOGY

THE CONYNE FAMILY IN AMERICA
(Copied from the book by: Marilyn E. (Conyne) Kraul)

In the early 1600's Holland posed an immediate threat to the other European powers by sending Henry Hudson (an Englishman) on a quest to discover a waterway across North America. In 1609, he sailed up a broad and encouraging river that was to carry his name, and although he did not discover a route to the Pacific, he did claim and important section of land right in the middle of England's holdings.

By 1624, the Dutch West India Company had sent people to America, and the settlement of the Hudson River Valley had begun. New Amsterdam (New York) was established on the coast and Fort Orange (Albany), was built upriver as a fur trading post. The small empire was to establish a lucrative trade in valuable pelts.

During its existence of only forty years, New Netherlands grew slowly, as it was difficult to get Dutch burghers to leave comfortable homes in Holland. Blessed with religious toleration and a good agricultural system, very few wished to exchange them for life under the patroon system of the New World. By 1664, England had taken over the colony and renamed it New York in honor of the Duke of York.

The first Conyne immigrant, Leendert Phillipse Konyn, born in Amsterdam, Holland in the early 1600, his oldest son was born in 1625. Leendert's marriage to Agnietje Caspers is well confirmed, though no date is suggested. While it is generally thought that they were married before coming to the New World, it is not proven, and there are confusions which it might be well to clear up, though they are beyond the s cope of this stucy. Angietje Caspers was undoubtedly the mother of most or all of Leendert's children; one source reports a second marriage to Agnietje Comertje Van Alen, daughter of Lawrence Van Alsan Jr, who with wife Albertje are found in the Albany church list of 1683-1700, but, though the name somewhat fits Leendert's accepted daughter, Commertje, discrepancies need to be resolved before this statement can be accepted.

Leendert Konyn is said by some to have come as a junior officer on a ship from Holland, but authentication has not been discovered. Nor do we know his connections with the West India Company, rather that with Rennslaerswyck, but further investigation is needed for any certainty. He is said to have been a master tailor, but in 1670, he accepted an apprentice job to learn the trades of carpenter and mill wrighting; Cornelis Willemsen van den Bergh was witness to the contract. Leendert Phillipse and his wife settled near Fort Orange, the town thereby later to be called Beaverwyck, some time in the 1640's. The name of the town was later changed to Albany by the English. (I use the Conyne spelling of the name, although it varies in the records as Konyn, Conyn, Conyne, Conine, and Connine. It was even incorrectly listed as Canine on the U.S. Government Census of 1790. The old Dutch records generally use the Konyn spelling, and Casparus Conyn of Claverack noted in his will a land boundary line being, "the great hickory marked with a K." The use of C and K was interchangeable in spelling the name.

The family seems to have been well accepted by a "clique" of middle class families of Dutch culture, if not always completely Dutch in origin. Many of them appear in the membership lists of the Albany Dutch Reformed Church, whose published records begin in 1683. Intermarriages in these families and a small range of others similarly placed appear in the course of migration of their descendants, but again, the task is beyond the scope of this report. Date offered here are from readily available, but possibly incomplete information.

The side of the family that moved west along the Mohawk River to Fort Hunter, Caughnawaga, Johnstown, Fonda, etc., routinely spelled the name Conyn or Conyne, while those who remained in Eastern New York used the Conine spelling. There is another Conine family descended from Derrick Conine who arrived here in the middle 1700's. It has been recorded that Coney Island in New York was named, "by the Dutch in honor of a man named Conyn." Be that as it may, "coney" is also another name for rabbit, and that island could have had plentiful supply of rabbits!.

The primogenitor of the Conyne family in America was LEENDERT PHILLIPSE CONYN, son of Phillip of Holland. He arrived in New Amsterdam prior to 1645, having been born in Ghent, District of Flanders, Netherlands or Holland. He was a master tailor in Beaverwyck (Albany) and married Agnietje Casperse. Early records of Albany state that in 1661, he paid seven and a half beavers (pelts) for a silver beaker, and in 1687 sold a house and lot on Brewery Street (now South Broadway) for the sum of twelve hundred three and twenty guilders, eight styvers in beavers. Leendert and Agnietje had eight children that we know of, possibly more.

NOTES: DIRCK PHILLIPSE CONYN in the Sebring record the marriage date is given as June 1812. Mrs. Forney thinks the latter date may be more nearly correct. Possibly by this marriage comes the relationship with the Bergen family, through which the Carnine ancestry was traced back through Holland to Finland. (See parcel). Children of Dirck Conyn or Derek Konyun and Rachael Conyn are listed the same in the Albany record as in the Sebring record, except as to the spelling.

NOTES: DIRCK PHILLIPSE CONYN and RACHAEL ANDRIESSEN VAN VECHTEN moved to Piscataway, New Jersey in 1711. During at least the periods from 1734 to 1745, Dirck resided in the Bound Brook, New Jersey, area. Although they were married in the New York Dutch Church, they were members of the Raritan (Somerville, Somerset County, New Jersey) Dutch Reformed Church congregation by 1714 or earlier.

NOTES: PIETER (PETER) PIETERSE CONYN was an early settler in the Johnstown area, and in 1772 was appointed by Governor Tryon as judge in the first court of general quarter sessions held at Johnstown. As one of the first elders of the Caughnawaga Dutch Reformed Church, he was burried beneath the church, along with its first pastor, Thomas Tomeyn.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF PETER CONYN

In the name of God, Amen. I Peter Conyn of the Mohawk river in Tryon County. "I leave to my eldest son, Petrus, a silver cup marked P.W., for his birthright"; also the land whereon I now live, stretching north until 100 yards, north of a small creek or run of water, a little south of the house where Giles now lives, which 100 yards is to be taken half way between the land of Harman and John Wemp, and then to be taken right across my land. I leave to my son John all the land I have bought lately of Jeremiah Quackenboss, lying on the south side of the Mohawk river, with the house, barn and grist mill, "except 100 along the Rane" (run?), from the land of the Heirs of Johannes Quackenboss to Aries creek. I leave to my son Abraham all the rest of my land, north from the land of my son Petrus and 100 acres on the south side of the river above reserved; also the land which I shall yet purchase from John Butler. I leave to my three sons my saw mill standing on the land given to my son John. I order that the barn which I hae agreed to have built by Peter Myndert and David Quackenboss, shall be built on my son Abraham's land, and my sons, Petrus and John, shall build for my son, Abraham, a house 30 feet long and 24 feet wide; and they are to cause to be cleared each 5 morgens of land, for my son Abraham, if he is married or requires the same.

I leave to Ariantie, daughter of my daughter Alley, 60 pounds. I leave to my daughter Deborah 60 pounds and a Negro man, and furniture, the same as my daughter Alley has had, and a cow "and a pan to warm the bed," and a silver tablespoon. I leave to my two daughters all my wife's linen, and two cows and my pewter and pots. I leave to my son Petrus my silver watch. To my son John, my large Bible. To my son Abraham my desk. I leave all my books to my 5 children, and the rest of my Negroes to my sons, when of age. My other sons are to maintain my son Abraham, "and give him learning". "If my daughter Alley, who has married Adam Zielen, shall live without him (he has now left her), she shall live in the house of Robert Spenner, with a good garden, to be kept in good fence, and she is to have each year, during her loneliness, 6 scheppels of wheat, 3 of corn, 3 pounds of wool, 12 loads of wood, and a cow." If her husband shall come and live in peace for one year, then my sons shall pay her each ten pounds. I leave to my sons all my farming tools, and when my son Abraham is married he shall have a new wagon, etc. I leave to my sons all my lands at Schenectady, lying on John Wemps island, and the land between Wilson and Abell and Hanses's Patent. My wife Rebecca is to stay in full possession of all my estate. I make Christopher Yates and my brother Myndert, and Andrew Wemple, executors.

Dated, March 19, 1733. Witnesses, Hendrick Hansen, Simon Veeder, John Wemple. Proved in Tryon County, September 5, 1774, before Bryan Lafferty.

HOUSES IN ALBANY COUNTY
Conyn-Van Rensselaer House
Town of Claverack, Columbia County, New York.

Plate 20

A house associated with the Conyns and Van Rensselaers stand a little east of Humphreysville in Columbia County. It consists of two architectural units, which present the familiar story of a smaller, temporary dwelling, built first and followed by a larger, permanent home as convenience permitted. In this instance a stone house of crude workmanship forms the rear wing of a wel built house of brick, two stories in height, with a gambrel roof.

The Dutch familyu of Conyn was founded at Beaverwyck about 1655 by Leendert Phillipse Conyn, whose descendant, Casper Leendertse Conyn, moved down to Claverack early in the eighteenth century, dying in 1727. The stone wing of this house was perhaps built by a son of Casper Leendertse and the brick house by the third generation. In one gable ind of the brick house is a tile, marked: K K 1736; and in the other a tile, marked: L K 1766, the initials supposedly representing father and son or husband and wife. The letters K K ae equivalent to Kasper Konyn, C and K being interchangeable at the time.

Ultimately, this property passed from kasper Konyn to his daughter (or grandaughter), Cornelia, who married in 1800, Jeremiah H. Van Rensselaer (Son of Henry I. Van Rensselaer). The house remained in the family of Jeremiah and Cornelia Van Rensselaer until 1884. It is now owned by Cornelius H. Evans of Hudson, New York.

To the exterior of the brick house alterations have been made that give it the appearance of a house of recent date. A fretted cornice, the front porch, the windowglass and shutters are all nineteenth century details and under each of the marked tiles in the gables a modern hand has painted in large figures: 1 7 6 6.

Inside, this house retains some of the atmosphere of its first estate. There is some original woodwork and relation of floor space to ceiling height is such as to impart a livable, domestic quality. Thee is an early staircase with wainscoted side in the central hall. The property has long been known as Locust Dale, from trees in front of the house, said to have been planted in 1765.

NOTES: ANDREW CARNINE: Was descended from the sturdy Dutch defenders of religious and political freedom. The family is of French Muguenet descent who fled to Holland during the sixteenth century. The Albany, New York records show that the progenitor of the Carnine family in America was Leendert Phillipse Conyn (Leonard Phillipe Conine). Dates of birth and of coming to America are unknown. His name was found on records to Beaverwyck, New York, dated 1655. He died in?

After the war, he joined the Conewago Colony, where here remained until about 1793.
When he, with many others, moved to Mercer County, Kentucky and later to Henry
County. Near Harrodsburg. Kentucky is the, "Old Mud Meeting House", originally the Dutch Reformed Church, of which, Andrew was a trustee. The deed to the site was made to John Van Bryck, Issac Van Nuys and Peter Carnine, as trustees of the organization. This indenture made this, 22 day of December, Anne Domini. One thousand eight hundred, between David Adams and Elizabeth, his wife, of the County of Kentucky and the Commonwealth of Kentucky, as of the one part, and John Verbryck, Issac Venice and Peter Carnine, agents and overseers and their successors, of the reformed Church on the dry fork of the Salt River in Mercer County of the the other part. Witnessed, that the said David Adams and Elizabeth, his wife, for and in consideration of the sum of four pounds, ten shillings, Virginia currency, in hand, well and truly paid by the said John Vanbryck, Isaac Vanice and Peter Carnine, the receipt whereof, he, the said David Adams both hereby acknowledge and also doth hereby acquit, discharge and exonerate the said, John Vanbryck, Issac Vanice and Peter Canine as agents and over seers and their successors of the said, Reformed Church, forever, all that Messuage, survey and Parch of land situate, lying and being in the County of Mercer and the Commonwealth of Kentucky, on the dry fork of Salt River.

"Beginning at two elms on the brink of the dry fork, thence down the same N 29 degrees, W twenty poles to two Water Beeches, two Buckeyes and a Hickory on the bank of said fork, Hence, S and twenty-five poles to a stake between an Ash and Hackberry, thence 11 degrees E, twenty four poles to the beginning. Containing three acres of land together with the appurtenances, to have and to hold all and singular the premises, together with the appurtenances belonging to the said John Vanbryck, Isaac Vanice and Peter Carnine and their successors, as agents and overseers of the said Reformed Church, for the sole benefit and use of the said, Reformed Church, as use and behoof of the said Reformed Church, forever and the said, David Adams and Elisa, his wife, against themselves, their heirs and assigns and against all persons whomsoever, the said premises and every part and parcel thereof, with the appurtenances for the said, John Jvanbryck, Isaac Vanice and Peter Carnine as agents and overseers for the said, Reformed Church, for a place of divine worship, but for no other purpose shall sufficiently warrant and forever defend by these presents. They affixed their signs and seals.

This was probably the first freehold of the Dutch Reformed Church west of the Allegheny. This was one of the earliest churches in Kentucky. It was called the "Mud" house, as its walls were of sturdy uprights, interlaced with sticks and mortar. Thus we see that our progenitors have been a race of pioneers. But to return to, "The Old Mud Meeting House", there is now in possession of the Van Bices of Iowa. One of the subscription papers, used in soliciting the wherewith, that, "We cannot say funds", with which to launch this church enterprise.

CHURCH SUBSCRIPTION 1800.

We, the subscribers, promise to pay to the managers of the New Dutch Reformed Church, on the Dry Fork of the Salt River, the following sums in trade. Such as shall be put opposite our names, on or before December 31, one thousand and 8 hundred, the said trade to be delivered at Peter Carnine's on Salt River. John Smock: One-second-rate cow. Issac Van Arsdale: one-second-rate cow. Wermadus Van Bryck: one-second-rate cow. John Conniger: one second rate cow and one ewe lamb. Henry Banta: one three-year heifer and ten bushels of rye. Peter Carnine: 3 pounds sterling in trade. Cornelius Van Nuys: 24 pounds in trade. John De Mottes: 15 pounds in trade. Henry Vanderveer: One two-year-old heifer. Peter Demotte: a fat steer. Lawrence Demotte: one fat steer. Peter Van Nuys: one heifer. Abraham Van Arsdale: 20 pounds in trade. Simon Van Arsdale: 18 pounds in trade.

These things give us a glimpse of live entirely unfamiliar to us on the frontier in the early days, when there were few roads, no markets, no railroads, nor telegraph, in which the graces of hospitality and neighborliness came into full bloom and the virtues of industry and initiative and self reliance were continually fostered and reached fruition. According to Collins history of Kentucky. Harrodsburg is the oldest town in Kentucky and in 1800, it had only 124 people. The title deed was dated December 1800. The building is located on dry fork, at Salt River, about four miles from Harrodsburg. Later its walls were weather boarded. The building still stands on a little hill in the rear of the old cemetery. Andrew Carnine was granted 1 thousand acres of land for Revolutionary War Services. Here he reared his family and accumulated quite a little property.

THE CONINE FAMILY GENEALOGY

These Conine family sections are written with data compiled and provided by SHEILA ANN (CONINE) FORESTER, who has conducted extensive genealocial research, and also from either published sources. The Dutch government sent HENRY HUDSON (an englishman) in 1609 to discover a water way across America. He obviously did not find this waterway to the Pacific, but did discover the region of New York Harbor and the river that bears his name, and claimed the land for the Netherlands.

The Dutch influence in the New York area is still very evident in geographical names. KILL IS THE Dutch word for creek and some area waterways still retain that designation, e.g., KILL VAN CULL. Staten Island and Barnegat still retain the Dutch spelling. Other Dutch geographical names have been anglicized such as Sandyhook from the original Dutch Sandt Hoeck. Jonas Bronc, who married a Conine, owned a 500 acre "bouwerie," or estate, in the northern part of present day New York City and, hence, the anglicized name, Bronx, for this area. Another New York landmark whose name was anglicized from the original Dutch spelling is Coney Island, which is said to have been named by the Dutch in honor of a man whose last name was CONYN.

The JACOB CONINE Family

5. JACOB CONINE. (Dirck Phillipse Conyn, Phillip Leendertse Conyn, Leendert Phillipse Conyn, Phillip (Conyn) Konyn.) Born. December 03, 1739 in Morris County, New York. Died. April 1, 1821 in Muskingum County, Ohio, where he moved in 1807. His will, signed on May 11, 1820, mentions his sons and daughters. He is buried in the back yard of a family named Wollard in Irvill, Muskingum County. MARY CLOVER on May 24, 1764 in New Jersey. Born. September 15, in Holland.

NOTES: JACOB CONINE was 12 years old when he started learning a trade, the tanning of leather and the making of shoes and other leather items. Throughout the war, Jacob and his family lived about ten miles from Morristown, New Jersey, which was the military capital and winter home for George Washington's army during two years of the Revolutionary War. Most of the Army was located in an area called Jockey Hollow, which was closer to the Conine family residence than it was to Morristown.

Most readers are probably familiar with the hardships at another winter home for the army, Valley Forge. But conditions, hardships and deprivations at Jockey Hollow were worse than at Valley Forge, plus these were wounded and defeated troops fleeing from their rout at Long Island. There were only a limited amount of residents that were allowed to continue to live in this area. Only the most loyal and needed people were allowed to remain (millers, blacksmiths, and tanners). Most readers are probably familiar with the hardships at another winter home for the army, Valley Forge. But conditions, hardships and deprivations at Jockey Hollow were worse than at Valley Forge, plus these were wounded and defeated troops fleeing from their rout at Long Island. There were only a limited amount of residents that were allowed to continue to live in this area. Only the most loyal and needed people were allowed to remain (millers, blacksmiths, and tanners).

Because of the concerns about British spies, George Washington forced the inhabitants to sign an oath of loyalty to the new country on February 14, 1777 or leave within thirty days. This decree was strictly enforced. These residents were under great pressure by the army to meet their demands and were required to supply the army with most of the things they needed. The people also took in, fed, and cared for the wounds of the injured soldiers. Schools and churches were opened as hospitals. Food, shoes and uniforms for half starved, half frozen, barefoot soldiers were necessary.

It was at this time that Jacob Conine became an asset. In 1779/81, he and his family accepted a contract from the US Government for 2,000 pairs of handmade shoes. Jacob Conine conduct during the war qualified him to be named a PATRIOT of the American Revolution. After the war, while George Washington was President, Jacob was invited to come to the White House. Since Jacob and George had become good friends during the war, Jacob decided to attend the party.

George Washington purportedly gave Jacob and his wife, Mary, several gifts: a silver ladle made by Paul Revere to honor Jacob and Mary Conine for sheltering Patriots; a collapsible telescope that Jacob received from George Washington a pewter teapot, a gift to Susannah (Jacob and Mary's daughter) from Thomas Jefferson; a sewing cabinet, a gift to Susannah from Benjamin Franklin; and a china tea set that was a wedding gift to David and Susannah (Conine) Vandenbark from George and Martha Washington, some of which are now in a museum.

For his part in the war, Jacob Conine was deeded five hundred acres of land in Licking Township, Muskimgun County, Ohio ( in what is now the Dillon Dam area). Hisdaughter, Susannah, and his son in law, David Vandenbark, moved to this land in 18801. Jacob sold his home property in New Jersey in 1805 and was in Licking Township near the Vandenbarks in 1807.

In 1998, there were only 579 households bearing the Conine name in 43 states.

NOTES: Waveland Independent, Feb. 13, 1903 JOEL GARNETT DEERE passed away between four and five o'clock, Monday afternoon at the family residence, 4 miles north of Waveland and near Bluff Mills. Mr. Deere had been sick for about two months with obstructive jaundice, thought to be caused by a growth on the liver. He discovered the first symptoms of his illness at the time of visiting his daughter. Mrs W. T. Whittington, of this city about the first of December. He was a man of vigorous constitution, and had never been sick, except with some stomach trouble, until his fatal illness. All hopes of his recovery was abandoned.

Several weeks ago and his physicians and family could only watch and wait, and make his last hours as comfortable as possible. He said, when first taken sick, "this will be my last sickness." He realized the struggle was against him and patiently to his sufferings, but longed for the end, and knew his family and friends up to the time of his death. Mr. Deere was of German descent. The grandfather to the country about the close of the 81th century, settling in Virginia. His father entered the War of 1812 at the age of 22. His mother was a member of the Old Garnett family of Virginia and a lovely character. His father located in Indiana, near where the mill now stands, when Joel was about a year old, and entered a section of government land.

Immediately after completing their cabin, the father, full of enterprise, even for pioneer days, proceeded to construct a grist mill, saw mill, woolen mill and a general store. The fire of 1887 destroyed the plant at a loss of $20,000. The firm of Canine and Deere, composed of William Canine and Joel G. Deere, was one of the best known in this part of the country. They were sturdy men and good citizens. The mill was quickly rebuilt after the fire and stands where one of the first mills in the county was built by his father, 73 years ago. Deere's Mill is a family word in Montgomery, Parke and Fountain Counties. Not withstanding the loss on account of the fire, he had considerable property at the time of his death and owned over 500 acres in Brown Township.

Perhaps the largest factor in his success was that he was absolutely an honest man. Many men are honest as the world uses the term, but of him it may be said in its largest and broadest sense, he was an honest man. He was elected County commissioner on the Republican ticket in 1888, but he did take kindly to the burdens and perplexities of the office and refused a renomination. His acts as an officer were always frank and above suspicion. In 1849, he was married to Mary E. McGrigg who survives him. They had 10 children, 7 sons and 3 daughters, all of whom are living except one daughter. All his children were with him during his last sickness, and watched with the mother in her devotion to her stricken companion of 54 years. Mr. Deere was the last member living of his family. He was a mason and a member of the Baptist Church, with which he united after he was 60 years of age, although he had always believed in and supported the church and was a man of deep religious conviction. The funeral services were held at Old Union Church at 11 o'clock, Wednesday morning conducted by Rev. SK Fuson. The whole community will share with the family in the loss of Joel G. Deere, for it may be truthfully said of him that he was a strong, sturdy, upright man, a pioneer, full of those qualities which go to make up good citizens. W. T. Whittington in the Crawfordsville Journal. He was a miller in 1850, a master miller in 1860 and a farmer in 1870 and of course a good business man. Buried at the Old Union Cemetery, Waveland, Montgomery County, Indiana.

NOTES: Waveland Independent, march 13, 1925 Charles H. Deere, who has been seriously ill following a breakdown some months ago, developed acute pneumonia on Sunday and died early on Monday morning. Funeral services at the Christian Church on Wednesday afternoon were in charge of Rev. E.E. Moorman, pastor of the Frankfort christian Church, assisted by Revs. J.B. Johnson and John Deere. Jesse Mitchell, R.H. Hodgkin, W.Y. Durham, T.S. Banta, John Sharp and Henry Fullenwider acted as pall bearers by Mr. Deere's request.

Burial in Union cemetery. Mr. Deere was the son of Joel and Mary McGrigg Deere and was born on the Old Deere homestead, south of Bluff Mills, May 13, 1858. He grew up on the farm, obtaining such education as was afforded by the schools of that day. He engaged in farming and married Miss Alice L. Canine. Two sons were born, who survive him: Irvine Deer of Crawfordsville and Alonzo of Waveland. Mrs. Deere died in 1888. He quit farming and engaged in stockbuying. In 1889 he united with the Freedom Baptist Church. Throughout his life Mr. Deere has been a man of the strictest integrity, more than honest, and always courteous. His business made him a wide circle of acquaintances who always became friends. The warmth of this regard was evidenced by a crowded church on Wednesday, the many floral offerings, but more than all by the universally kind remarks made. He will be greatly missed. He served one term as township assessor, and was a member of the town board at the time of his last illness. Besides his wife and sons, he is survived by an adopted daughter, Mrs. Audrey Mount of North Salem; by four grandchildren; Wendell, Josephine, Helen and Charles Hugh Deere; by four brothers; John of Morristown, Tennessee; George of Crawfordsville and albert and Stephen of Browns Valley; by one sister, Mrs. W.T. Whittington, and one foster sister, Mrs. John Whittington of Cayuga.
