Johannes Clute, ancestor of all the Clutes in the county, who settled in Niskayuna in 1684, has the following lineage:

Johannes Clute settled in Niskayuna in 1684, on lands he received by will from his rich uncle, Captain Johannes Clute of Albany. He married Baata, daughter of Gerrit Van Slichtenhorst and granddaughter of Brant Arantse Van Slichtenhorst, who was director (head man), of the colony of Rensselaerwyck in 1646, and whom, I have had occasion to remark, proved to be a foeman worthy of Governor Stuyvesant's most bitter animosity. She was also the granddaughter of the indomitable Colonel Philip Pieterse Schuyler. In 1692, her husband Johannes, being a prisoner in Canada, this remarkable woman, with great adroitness, managed all his business affairs.

Johannes Clute died November 26th, 1725, and was buried in Niskayuna. He left surviving him three sons and five daughters. Clute is a prominent name in Schenectady.
