He was in Schenectady as early as 1684, and a resident here as late as 1706.

In 1684, the patentees of Schenectady conveyed to him a parcel of land in the Woestyne behind the flat of Daniel Janse Van Antwerpen; after holding this farm 20 years, he reconveyed it to the patentees of the town, Feb. 1, 1702/3, and soon after probably left the township. The patentees sold this land Dec. 31, 1705, to Jan Danielse Van Antwerpen.(127-7)
