Phillip Ryley, of the city of New York, came here about 1742, and had the following lineage:

James Van Slyck Ryley, son of Philip, born October 3d, 1761, married, August 19th, 1792, Jannetje, daughter of Isaac Swits. He died January 8th, 1848, aged eighty-six years, leaving several daughters, one of whom married the distinguished divine, Rev. John Ludlow, D.D., for many years provost of the University of Pennsylvania.

Mr. Ryley was for many years associate judge of the Court of Common Pleas of Schenectady County; for a long time postmaster of this city, and was, on several occasions, employed as commissioner and interpreter by the United States Government to negotiate treaties with the northwestern tribes of Indians, for which position he was peculiarly fitted, having been, during his early life, a well-known trader among them. He also served several years as sheriff of Schenectady County.

Alida, daughter of Philip, born July 15th, 1743, married Gerrit R. Van Vranken.

Gertrude, another daughter, born October 3d, 1744, married William Rogers, Jr.
