Van Slyck

There were two early settlers of Beverwyck of this name; Willem, whose descendants settled below Albany, in Columbia County and elsewhere, and Cornelis Antonissen, alias "Broer Cornelis," so called by the natives. The latter is said to have married a Mohawk woman by whom he had several children: Jacques; Marten Mouris; Hilletie and perhaps Lea. Marten was in Beverwyck in 1661; gave name to the island (now Van Slyck's) lying in the Mohawk, west of Schenectady, and d. probably early in 1662; Hilletie, m. Pieter Danielse Van Olinda, and was often employed as the provincial interpreter for the Five Nations; Lea, m. first, Claas Willemse Van Coppernol, and secondly, Jonathan Stevens. "Broer Cornelis," d. in 1676. By reason of his eminent services rendered in bringing about peace with the natives, he received a patent for a large tract of land at Catskil; he also owned land near Cohoes.

JACQUES, son of Cornelis, was b. in 1640 at Canajoharie; his Indian name was Itsychosaquachka; he was also sometimes called Aques Cornelyssen Gautsh. The Mohawks gave him half of the island in the Mohawk lying immediately west of the city; also land five miles above the city on the south side of the river. In 1671 he was one of the two licensed tapsters in the village. His wife was Grietje, dau. of Harmen Janse Ryckman of Albany; after his death in 1690, she m. Adam Vrooman, Feb. 21, 1691/2. His will was made May 8, 1690. The following children were living in 1697; Harmen, eldest son; Susanna, m.
