Broer Cornelis by reason of his eminent services in bringing about peace and ransoming prisoners in the hands of the Indians, "which well known services should of right be duly acknowledged," — received a grant of lands at Katskill in 1646. (188-4)

In 1640 he lived near Cohoes falls; he died in 1676. (188-5)
