Saturday 19th. I worked in the kitchen made tatting mended the stockings.I took a lesson after supper Mr. St. J. came. I helped mother mak a apronfor Clara. I washed [watched?] Harry, Andrew & Melia cut up high. theypretended they were married and they quarreled with & loved each other atlast. M. said something to A. and he dared her to say it out loud and soshe said "I was just wondering why Mr. St. J. & Belle didn't get marriedand then he would have some one to comb his hair & fix him nice like Idid Andrew. I blushed as red. I did not dare to look at Mr. St. J. to seehow he looked. I was as provoced as could be.

NEWSPAPER ARTICLE BY PHILLIP VAN ALSTINE:
FORT RENSSELAER (MARTIN VAN ALSTINE'S HOUSE)
To the Editor of the Fonda Democrat,
Sir:
Prior to 1655 Jan Martense (de wever) and Dirckje Harmense his wife, theancestors of the Van Alstines in this country, were residents of NewAmsterdam.
In 1656 they were residents and property owners at Fort Orange [nearAlbany, NY], and about 1665 removed from Fort Orange to Pompoenick asuburb of Kinderhook and before their death owned large tracts of realestate at that place. Jan Martense died after 1700 and Dirckje, his wife,after 1687. Both are buried at Kinderhook. Jan and Dirckje were theparents of five children: Abraham Jans, Martin Jans, Isaac Jans, LambertJans, and Dorothy who married Jacob Vosburg. Their son Martin Jans wasbaptised in the Dutch church at New Amsterdam, July 18th, 1655.
Jan Martense and his four boys about 1700 took the surname of "VanAelstijn" which they continued to spell as above until about 1740, whenthey changed the spelling to "Van Alstine." Up to 1720 Martin and Isaacwere freeholders at Kinderhook and between 1720, and 1723 the sons Martinand Isaac sold their real estate at Pompoenick and removed to Canajohariewhere they, in 1723, purchased a large quantity of real property andabout 1729 Martin began the erection of the building now known as "FortRensselaer" and completed the same about 1730.
Martin's house has been confounded with Fort Plain several miles distant.Doctor F. H. Root of Rhinebeck, NY, a native of Canajoharie, whose motherwas a Van Alstine, a descendent of Martin Van Alstine, and he adescendent of Johannes Roof whose house was near Martin Van Alstine's atCanajoharie, published an article about Fort Rensselaer at Canajoharie,in the October 1879 number of "The Magazine of American History." Thewriter was well acquainted with Dr. Roof, and after reading his statementin the magazine he saw the doctor and informed him that Martin VanAlstine occupied Fort Rensselaer the early part of 1731, and subsequentlythe doctor informed the writer that he had made a careful examination offamily records, and that the erection of the Martin Van Alstine house wascommenced in 1729 and completed the latter part of 1730.
In a book published by the state in 1897, entitled "New York in theRevolution" is a map of the Schoharie and Mohawk valleys on which map isshown "Fort Plain," at Fort Plain, and the residences of Martin VanAlstine and Johannes Roof at Canajoharie, and the distance approximatelyfour miles.
My ancestor, Colonel Phillip Van Alstine, who commanded the SeventhRensselaer Regiment from 1776 to 1798, and was with his command atSchoharie on several occasions from 1778 to 1781, and had hisheadquarters at Fort Rensselaer wrote his outposts were near Fort Plainseveral miles distant. Dated Spring Valley, NY, February 17th, 1922.

130 Excerpts from: http://www.rag-time.com/fest/bio.htm

He was named after his grandfather, a grocery merchant who also served as a minister at the Methodist church.

By 1900 he had several instrumental works published. Even the great John Phillips Sousa was playing one of his marches with the Chicago Marine Band. At the same time, he was playing ragtime with his road company, "A Wise Member," performing their hit show, "A Ragtime Specialty."

This is particularly shocking, especially in light of his religious background. While ragtime had been developing for many years in barrooms and "sporting houses," throughout its heyday it was considered naughty. Not only was it America's first popular music, it was irreverent, at least humorous and often immoral. It was the first musical genre of young people -- teenagers -- the latest product of the industrial revolution. The dances performed to this music were also considered immoral, and ministers were condemning ragtime from pulpits across America. Now, the minister's bright and talented grandson had fallen under its spell.

To make matters worse, Egbert himself remembered years later that the show once went broke in Nogales, New Mexico, and he had to play piano in a "honky-tonk" for three months to earn carfare back home. This also happened in El Reno, Oklahoma, where he stayed with the family of the young Brun Campbell for several months.

During those years, he hooked up with Harry Williams, a young man from Minnesota who became his lyricist. In 1901, with less than $10 between them, they took off for New York to seek their fortunes on Tin Pan Alley -- the music publishing capital of the world at that time. Egbert worked as a song plugger for one publishing house, meaning that he would bring new sheet music to stores, play and sing the tunes and try to sell it to the merchants. It was not an easy or well-paying job.

The boys' ship came in around 1903, when their song "Navajo" was granted a spot in a musical "Nancy Brown." The show was a success and the song became a hit. This tune was published twice, both as a song and a piano instrumental. Williams and Van Alstyne were hired by Remick Music Publishing where they continued writing together until 1911. Except for a brief hiatus in the late 'teens, Egbert remained associated with Remick for most of his remaining life. Williams wound up in California, eventually directing movies, and died in 1922.

From 1903 to 1911, Williams and Van Alstyne cranked out hit after hit, making the "charts" each year. They moved to Chicago in 1907, where Egbert remained most of his life. After the team split up, Egbert collaborated with such great songwriters as Gus Kahn and Earle C. Jones and the legendary ragtime pianist Tony Jackson. However, Egbert failed to achieve the height of popularity he enjoyed during the Williams years, although he achieved sporadic success throughout the twenties.

By the 1940's, Egbert was all but forgotten in the music industry. That is, until he was "discovered" by a Chicago columnist lunching at Henrici's. The restaurant was located across the street from the Woods Building in Chicago, where Egbert still worked in the Remick offices.

After the columnist wrote several pieces about him, the Chicago Tribune took enough interest in Egbert to honor him at the Chicago Music Festival of 1950 with a musical tribute. Nearly 1,000 people attended a luncheon in his honor that day. A huge apple tree was plucked from a Marengo farm and shipped to Soldier Field, where it was "planted" for the festivities. A busload of Marengoans witnessed the moment when Egbert rode in seated in a convertible and plucked an apple from the tree, which was the band's cue to strike up "In The Shade Of The Old Apple Tree," which has now sold about 26 million copies. He died a year later.

Since his death, plenty of myths have developed around him, which the facts are proving wrong. The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers states he was born in Chicago in 1882. His birth record, on file at the McHenry County Courthouse, shows he was born in Marengo in 1878. Numerous articles said he wrote up to and exceeding 700 songs. So far, the count is around 400.

A number of sites around McHenry County are said to be the point of inspiration for his song, "Down By The Old Mill Stream." Egbert didn't even write this one. It was written by Tell Taylor. Nor did he write "Pony Boy," which was attributed to him so frequently during his own lifetime that he finally quit arguing about it, according to his surviving daughter-in-law.

Now, he has a reputation in Japan as being a great jazz composer. He hated jazz. He even held a symposium in 1922 denouncing it, saying it wasn't even music.

Most of all, he is largely thought of today (if at all) as being a great ballad writer. Today, with the help of the ragtime community, I am finding that he was much more. He wrote piano rags, marches, waltzes, intermezzos, comic songs and fox trots, even operettas. His classical training and musical ability, combined with his unique capacity for variety made him perhaps the most diversified composer of the time. He left us with a litany of serious music which is not only good, but largely unappreciated.

135 FOR THE FIRST 10 OR 12 YEARS OF HER LIFE SHE WAS VERY HEALTHY, AND ASPLAYFUL AS A KITTEN. AT 14 OR 15, SHE GREW VERY FAST IN HEIGHT, SO MUCHSO AS TO CAUSE ME FEARS FOR HER HEALTH, AND TIME PROVED THOSE FEARS TOHAVE BEEN WELL FOUNDED. AS SHE GREW IN YEARS, SHE LOST THAT PLAYFULNESS,AND WAS A YOUNG WOMAN OF FEW WORDS, STILL SHE WAS NEVER MELONCHOLY ORMOODY; SHE WAS INDEED THE JOY OF THE HOUSE, AND LIGHT OF OUR HOME. BEINGTHE YOUNGEST IT WAS BUT NATURAL THAT SHE WAS DEARLY BELOVED BY US ALL;HER ATTACHMENT TO HER FRIENDS WAS STRONG, AND LASTING AS LIFE; SHEENJOYED LIFE VERY MUCH, AND AT DIFFERENT TIMES DURING HER SICKNESSREMARKED THAT SHE HAD FOUND A GREAT AMOUNT OF HAPPINESS IN LIFE, ORSOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT. SHE WAS FIRM AND TRUTHFUL. I CANNOT REMEMBER OFHER HAVING EVER SPOKEN OR ACTED A FALSEHOOD. IT MIGHT JUSTLY BE SAID OFHER: "SHE WAS TRUTH PERSONIFIED." WITH HER A SECRET WAS LOCKED UP FOREVER - WAS THE LAST TO GIVE EAR TO MERE HEAR-SAY, OR CIRCULATE A SLANDER;WAS FOND OF MUSIC, AND WOULD PLAY AND SING OVER AND OVER, "JESUS OFNAZARETH PASSETH BY","MARY AT THE SAVIOR'S TOMB" AND "ROCK OF AGES" ANDALWAYS SEEMED TO FEEL WHAT SHE WAS SINGING. I DO NOT KNOW OF ONE FOOLISHSONG SHE EVER LEARNED; STILL SHE WAS BY NO MEANS PERFECT, NOR DID SHETHING HERSELF SO. HER FAULT (IF IT WAS A FAULT) LAY ON THE OTHER SIDE.SHE NEVER THOUGHT SHE SAID ANYTHING WORTH REPEATING, OR DID ANY THINGWORTHY OF PRAISE. ABOUT SIX MONTHS BEFORE HER DEATH SHE SAID,"MOTHER, WEARE NONE OF US NEAR AS GOOD AS WE THINK WE ARE." SHE EVER HAD A FEELINGOF SELF DEPRECIATION, COMBINED WITH A NERVOUS SHRINKING FROM BEING MADEAN OBJECT OF GENERAL OBSERVATION; AND THAT DISPOSITION WAS A SOURCE OF NOSMALL ANNOYANCE TO ME DURING HER LONG AND PROTRACTED ILLNESS. WHAT COULDI DO BUT TALK ABOUT HER TO THE HUNDREDS OF CALLS THAT WERE MADE TO KNOWHOW SHE WAS. FINALLY, SHE SAID, "TELL THEM I AM ABOUT THE SAME AND SAY NOMORE ABOUT ME." ONCE AFTER READING JOSIE'S LETTER SHE SAID, "I WISH JOSIEWOULD SAY LESS ABOUT ME IN HER LETTERS AND MORE ABOUT THE CHILDREN."SPEAKING ABOUT GRANDMOTHER, SHE SAID, "I LOVE TO JUST SET AND LOOK ATHER." HER RELIGION WAS SO UNASSUMING, SO RETIRING, THAT IT WAS HARD TOKNOW THE STATE OF HER MIND ONLY AS WE CAUGHT THEM BY SHORT SENTENCES;EVEN AFTER I FELT SHE WAS CONCERNED IN REGARD TO COMING OUT ON THE LORD'SSIDE. I FEARED TO SPEAK TO HER ON THE SUBJECT, LEST HER SENSITIVE NATUREMIGHT BE WOUNDED. I REMEMBER IT WAS MONDAY; SHE HAD BEEN TO NEW CASTLETHAT DAY; AFTER SHE CAME HOME SHE WAS CUTTING OUT SOMETHING SHE HAD GOTAND WAS IN A HURRY TO HAVE MADE, SHE STOPPED AND SAID,"MOTHER THE MEETINGIS GOING ON AT HARMONY. I HAVE A MIND TO GO UP, I DON'T THINK THERE WOULDBE ANY HARM IN IT." I REPLIED NO, AND THERE MIGHT BE A GREAT DEAL OF GOODIN IT. AS I WAS FASTENING HER DRESS I VENTURED TO SAY TO HER, THAT IF SHEFELT LIKE WANTING TO COME OUT ON THE SIDE OF CHRIST, SHE MIGHT BE SURE ITWAS CHRIST'S SPIRIT CALLING HER; THAT THERE WAS NOTHING IN US BY NATURETO MAKE US WANT TO FOLLOW CHRIST. SHE WENT DOWN TO MOTHER'S, HOPING TOMEET JOSEPH THERE, AND GO UP WITH HIM. BUT HE WAS GONE, SO SHE CAME BACKAND WALKED ALL THE WAY UP, A DISTANCE OF FIVE MILES, AND AS IT WASGETTING LATE, I FELT VERY UNEASY ABOUT HER. BUT SHE GOT THERE SAFE, ANDWENT FORWARD AND WAS BAPTISED.
I OFTEN FOUND THE BIBLE HAD BEEN MOVED WHILE I WAS OUT, AND WHEN SHEBECAME TOO WEAK TO GET IT FOR HERSELF SHE WOULD ASK ME TO GET IT FOR HER,AND FINALLY WHEN SHE BECAME TOO WEAK TO EVEN READ IT FOR HERSELF, SHESEEMED INTERESTED IN HAVING ME READ IT TO HER. ON SATURDAY BEFORE SHEDIED SHE SAID, "MOTHER, THEE HASN'T READ ANY TO ME TO DAY." I IMMEDIATELYREAD SOME PASSAGES I HAD PREVIOUSLY SELECTED.
SOME SIX MONTHS BEFORE HER DEATH SHE ASKED "IF CHARLEY HADN'T SOME NICEBOOKS AND PAPERS IN HIS DRAWER." I GOT THEM FOR HER. AFTER LOOKING THEMOVER, SHE SAID, "THIS IS A NICE ONE." IT WAS POETRY ON HEAVEN, THE LASTLINE OF EACH VERSE WAS, "BUT WHAT MUST IT BE TO BE THERE?" ALTHOUGH HERVOICE WAS VERY WEAK SHE READ IT THROUGH TO ME. I TRUST THOSE LINES WILLEVER BE DOUBLY DEAR TO ME. WAS IT NOT SINGULAR THAT CHARLES' LAST SUNDAYSCHOOL BOOK WAS ON HEAVEN; AT ONE TIME I READ TO HER THAT BEAUTIFUL HYMN,"DO I LOVE THE LORD OR NO! AM I HIS OR AM I NOT." SHE SAID WITH MORE THANUSUAL EARNESTNESS THAT "IT WAS SO TRUTHFUL." IN A CONVERSATION ON WHAT ITTOOK TO BE PREPARED FOR HEAVEN, I TOLD HER ALL WE COULD DO WAS TO HAVEFAITH IN GOD, THROUGH CHRIST. SHE ANSWERED, "YES, BUT TO GET THAT FAITH."I ASKED HER IF SHE DID NOT NOW OFTEN TRUST GOD FOR THINGS, SHE ANSWERED"I USED TO BE AFRAID IN THE DARK, AND I THOUGHT OF THAT, AND WAS NEVERAFRAID AFTERWARD." SOME DAYS BEFORE HER DEATH, I WAS REGRETTING THAT SOMUCH OF HER PRECIOUS TIME WAS TAKEN UP LISTENING TO CONVERSATION THAT WASOF NO PROFIT. "WELL," SAID SHE, "I CAN'T BE ALL THE TIME COMMITTINGMYSELF TO HIM." SHOWING BY THAT EXPRESSION THAT MUCH OF HER TIME WASSPENT IN THAT WAY. ONE TIME SHE RECEIVED A LETTER FROM JOSIE, TELLING HERHOW SHE HAD DOUBTED HER HEART BEING A FIT TEMPLE FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TODWELL IN, THAT SHE HAD FOR A LONG TIME LOOKED UPON GOD AS A STERN JUDGEINSTEAD OF A KIND FATHER. I SAID TO HER, CARRIE, I DON'T THINK THEE ISTHAT WAY, I THINK WHEN GOD SAYS "ASK AND YE SHALL RECEIVE, SEEK AND YESHALL FIND, KNOCK AND IT SHALL BE OPENED UNTO YOU," THAT THEE BELIEVES ITAND WITH A LOUDER, AND FIRMER VOICE THAN USUAL SHE SAID "YES." SHE WASOPPOSED TO REV. OWINS' MANNER OF PRAYING FOR HER, THAT SHE SHOULD GETWELL, WITHOUT SAYING THE LORD'S WILL BE DONE, AND ASKED ME "HOW THAT WASABOUT THE WOMAN THAT PRAYED HER SON SHOULD GET WELL." I TOLD HER HE WASAFTERWARDS HUNG. SHE SAID THAT WAS THE WAY OWINS PRAYED FOR ME, AND I HADA MIND TO STOP HIM." SOME TIME AFTERWARDS SHE CORRECTED IT BY SAYING,"NO, I DIDN'T INTEND TO STOP HIM, BUT I THOUGHT ABOUT IT MEANING THAT,MOTHER." SHE SEEMED CVONTENT TO BE IN THE LORD'S HANDS. AT ONE TIME SHESAID "THERE WERE SO MANY THINGS TO BE THANKFUL FOR, SHE HARDLY KNEW WHERETO BEGIN." I REMARKED THAT I HARDLY KNEW WHAT ONE THAT HAD BEEN SICK SOLONG WOULD FIND TO BE THANKFUL FOR. SHE SAID, "WHY, IT IS JUST ME THATHAS THINGS TO BE THANKFUL FOR; YOU ARE ALL GOOD TO ME, AND ARE ABLE TOGET ME EVERYTHING I WANT. SUPPOSE IT WAS M. G., THEY COULDN'T ATTEND TOHER AS YOU DO TO ME." SHE SEEMED WORRIED ONCE ABOUT A YOUNG ACQUAINTANCETHAT HAD MADE A PROFESSION OF RELIGION, SAYING TO ME, "M. TOLD ME HOWMANY DANCES SHE HAD BEEN TO," AND SAID, "I ASKED HER IF SHE THOUGHT ITWAS RIGHT." SHE REMARKED TO ME ONE DAY, "MOTHER, THEE ALWAYS SAID I WOULDDIE OF CONSUMPTION, AND I ALWAYS WANTED TO." AT ANOTHER TIME SHE SAID, "IDON'T THINK I AM SO BAD AS OTHERS DO, THERE HAVE BEEN SO MANY PRAYERS FORME; UNLESS THERE IS SOME GREAT REASON WHY I SHOULD NOT RECOVER, I THINKHE WILL CHANGE;" THUS SHOWING HER GREAT FAITH IN PRAYER, AND A FULLBELIEF THAT GOD WOULD DO WHATEVER WAS FOR THE BEST. SHE FELT HERSELF TOBE A BURTHEN TO ME. I TOLD HER I WOULD WILLINGLY WAIT UPON HER AS LONG ASI LIVED IF SHE COULD ONLY BE SPARED TO US. SHE ANSWERED. "I WOULDN'T WANTTO BE BAD LONG." AND HER WISH WAS GRANTED, FOR SHE SEEMED TO SUFFER BUTLITTLE TILL THE LAST THREE OR FOUR DAYS, AND THEN ONLY AT INTERVALS.ABOUT TWO WEEKS BEFORE HER DEATH AS I WAS TAKING HER UP IN THE MORNING,SHE LOOKED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND SAID, "WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY IT IS! LETME SET HERE AND LOOK AT IT A WHILE. HOW PRETTY THAT FIELD LOOKS!" I FELTIT WAS HER LAST LOOK AT THE BEAUTIES OF EARTH. I BELIEVE SHE PITIED USFULL AS MUCH AS HERSELF - GETTING ME TO TAKE HER OUT OF BED, SAYING "PAPAHATES TO SEE ME IN BED." AS NEAR AS I CAN REMEMBER, THREE WEEKS BEFOREHER DEATH, SHE ASKED ME"IF SHE COULD HAVE CHARLES' PENKNIFE FOR THREE ORFOUR DAYS? THAT SHE DIDN'T THINK IT WAS WRONG; THAT SHE WOULDN'T MINDPEOPLE USING HER THINGS." AFTER KEEPING IT IN HER HAND FOR AN HOUR OR SOWITHOUT SPEAKING, SHE SAID, "SOMEWAY, I LIKE TO HAVE SOME OF CHARLES'THINGS ABOUT ME." ON THE MONDAY PREVIOUS TO THE MONDAY ON WHICH SHE DIED,SHE WAS QUITE SLEEPY, AND SLEPT MOST OF THE TIME TILL THREE O'CLOCK,BREATHING DEEP AND HEAVY, SO MUCH SO THAT I AROUSED HER AND TOOK HER OUTON THE LOUNGE. WHEN SHE WENT TO BED THAT NIGHT SHE APPEARED HAPPIER THANI HAD SEEN HER DURING ALL HER SICKNESS. SHE SAID, "HOW GOOD IT WAS TOHAVE A PLEASANT BED TO LIE UPON, WHILE SO MANY HAD NO BED ON WHICH TOLIE; I DO SO PITY THE POOR. JUST THINK OF THAT POOR OLD MAN AT THE COALBANKS WITHOUT EVEN A BLANKET! I SAID SOMETHING ABOUT THEIR LACK OFJUDGMENT. SHE SAID "YES, BUT THEY ARE TO BE PITIED FOR NOT KNOWING HOW."I SAID LET US BE THANKFUL. SHE QUIETLY SAID "I DO, I AM." AFTER LAYINGSTILL FOR SOME TIME SHE SAID, "WHEN THEE GETS UP I WANT THEE TO TAKE MEUP, I DO SO LOVE TO BE WHERE YOU ARE, I SO LOVE TO SEE YOU GOING ROUND,AND I LOVE TO BE WHERE PA AND SAMUEL ARE." FOR SEVERAL MONTHS SHE HADDISLIKED TO HAVE ME OUT OF HER SIGHT, TELLING ME TO LEAVE THE DOOR OPENWHEN I WENT INTO AN ADJOINING ROOM. IT SEEMED STRANGE TO ME THEN, ANDDOES YET, HOW I COULD HAVE ENJOYED HER AS I DID, KNOWING I MUST SOON PARTWITH HER, BUT IT IS A GREAT JOY TO ME NOW THAT I SHALL SOON MEET HERAGAIN. AFTER THAT HAPPY MONDAY NIGHT HER APPETITE FAILED HER, AND WHATSHE DID EAT CAUSED PAIN; SHE SANK SO GRADUALLY THAT WE DID NOT REALISESHE WAS SO NEAR HER END. DURING SUNDAY SHE LAY MOST OF THE TIME AS IFASLEEP, BUT SAID IN THE EVENING SHE HAD NOT BEEN SLEEPING, AND THAT SHESUFFERED A LITTLE ALL DAY. IN THE AFTERNOON I WROTE TO JOSIE, TELLING HERTO COME HOME BY WEDNESDAY, AND REMARKED, I WAS AFRAID MABEL WOULD ANNOYCARRIE. SHE HEARD ME AND SAID, "MABEL WON'T ANNOY ME ANY." IN THE EVENINGSHE SEEMED INCLINED TO SLEEP, SO PAPA AND I LAY DOWN LEAVING HER ON THELOUNGE, TO BE CARED FOR BY IRENA, JOSEPH AND CALL, BUT I ONLY HAD LAIN ASHORT TIME TILL SHE CALLED ME, TELLING ME WHEN I CAME TO HER "THAT SHEBELIEVED IT WAS HER NERVES, FOR SHE WAS SO MUCH BETTER WHEN I WAS NEARHER," AND ASKED ME "IF I COULDN'T LAY ON THE LOUNGE BEHIND HER." SO I LAYDOWN BEHIND HER. SHE THEN WISHED THE REST TO GO TO BED WHICH THEY DID,BUT SOON SHE ASKED ME TO TURN HER, WHEN SHE TOOK OUT THE WORST SPELL SHEEVER HAD, CRYING OUT IN AN AGONY OF PAIN, "DEAR PAPA, DEAR PAPA," SEVERALTIMES OVER AND SEEMED IN TOO GREAT PAIN TO QUIT IT EVEN AFTER HE CAME TOHER, AND HAD TAKEN HER IN HIS ARMS. SHE HAD SEVERAL SPELLS DURING THENIGHT BUT NONE SO VIOLENT. SHE ASKED US IF "WE DIDN'T THINK IT WASINFLAMMATION?" AND IT IS LIKELY IT WAS. PAPA AND I WAITED UPON HER ALLNIGHT. SOME TIMES SHE WOULD HAVE ONE ARM AROUND EACH OF OUR NECKS AT THESAME TIME, AS I WOULD BE BATHING HER, AND BE HOLDING HER IN DIFFERENTPOSITIONS. SHE SLEPT NONE DURING THE NIGHT, HER NERVES SEEMED ALL AROUSEDAND HER VOICE STRONG. I THOUGHT SHE OUGHT TO HAVE SOME MORPHINE ORSOMETHING TO CAUSE HER TO SLEEP, AND SHE SAID, "SHE WOULD LIKE TO HAVESOMETHING," SO PAPA STARTED TO TRY TO GET SOMETHING TO EASE HER, BUT HEHAD ONLY BEEN GONE A SHORT TIME WHEN SHE TOLD ME TO "RUB ONE OF HER FEETTHAT IT WAS NUMB." AFTER I HAD RUBBED IT FOR SOME TIME SHE TOLD ME "NOTTO RUB IT ANY LONGER THAT IT WAS NUMB STILL, BUT FOR ME TO STRAIGHTENTHEM DOWN," AND THEN TOLD ME "TO TAKE HER IN MY ARMS," WHICH WE DID BYRAISING HER AND SITTING BEHIND HER WITH OUR ARMS AROUND HER. AS SOON ASSHE LEANED BACK, I SAW SHE WAS DYING, AND SAID CARRIE, THEE IS DYING,JESUS HAS COME AFTER THEE AT LAST. SHE SAID "LAY ME DOWN," AND THENCROSSED HER HANDS ON HER BREAST, AND BREATHED QUITE EASY FOR ABOUT FIVEMINUTES, BUT THEN HER EYES SET, AND SHE SAID "I CAN'T SEE." AFTER ITHOUGHT SHE WAS PAST SPEAKING, SAMUEL PUT HIS HAND UPON HER FOREHEAD ANDSAID "SISSY, DOES THEE SUFFER MUCH?" SHE ANSWERED "OF COURSE;" AND THESEWERE HER LAST WORDS. A FEW MORE DEEP DRAWN BREATHS AND SHE WAS GONE. NOTA MOAN; NOT A STRUGGLE; NOT ONE WORD OF REPINING AGAINST THE DEALINGS OFPROVIDENCE, HAD EVER ESCAPED HER LIPS; THE THOUGHT OF DEATH CAUSEDNEITHER FEAR NOR JOY, AND THUS SHE DIED, FEB. 23, 1874, AGED 19 YEARS, 6MONTHS AND 23 DAYS.

The writing was the smallest I've ever had to read,the ink light in spots, and the hand-writing not always as we formletters today. The punctuation was often missing and few capital lettersat the beginning of sentences. Some words were spelled differently fromtoday - for instance 'staid' rather than 'stayed'; compounds usuallyspelled as two words. I have left out the editor's 'sic' and typed theentries as I saw them. Done around February, 1994.]

Jan came to Wildwyck [Kingston] New York and his name appears on Albany court records 4 Apr. 1656, then in October the same year, he is found living in Beverwyck [Albany]. Jan became a trader, and on 1 May, 1658 he purchased the yacht HOPE from Pieter Lourensen.

He and his wife were fined on several occasions for selling beer to the Indians, and once he was fined for selling brandy "after the ringing of the bell and during the sermon". Jan's wife was in charge during her husband's many absences and she often gave mortgages, made sales and bought land, always signing as "Derckien Hermanse" which means Derckien, daughter of a man named Herman.

On 10 Feb. 1657 Andreis Harpersn gave to Jan Martense alias de Wever, a right and title to a house bought at auction from Jurriaen Theussen/Tappen.In 1660 Jan mortgaged his house, lot and garden in the village of Beverwyck to Nicholas de Meyer and Jan Bastiaensen Van Gudsenhoven, owing the former 576 guilders in beaver skins and to the latter 1042 guilders, 2 stivers and 8 pennies. Jan's Albany real estate was held until 7 Feb. 1694 when he sold it to Mees Hogeboom for 15 pounds. This property was described as being without the north gate, bounded west by the street to Rensselaer's mill, north by the creek, east by the Marselis property and south by the road to the river.

On 28 March 1662 Jan was raising corn and grain in Wildwyck. Anna Blom demanded payment of 20 beaver skins from him, as did Herman Vedder who demanded 100 schepels of oats. Harmen seized the grain belonging to Jan and the parties agreed about a future settlement. The following spring Jan was back in Albany, selling to Goosen Gerritse Van Schaick 7 head of cattle for 580 guilders payable in beaver skins.

By 25 April 1663 he owned land at Esopus [Kingston]. On 11 June 1667 Jan patented land near Hurley. On 10 Sept. 1684 both parcels of land sold to the heirs of Cornelius Wyncoop. On 7 June 1663 the Indian massacre of Wildwyck occured, and Jan Weever signed on to a military company as a cadet.

Next Jan became a tenant of Volkert Janse Douw and Jan Tomassen Mingael on the Island Schodack. In the summer of 1671 it was recorded that milk and butter had been stolen from the farm of Jan Martensen at Catskill. Around this time Jan was found living at Kinderhook, where with Hendrick Meesen Vrooman, he was made supervisor of roads on 10 Feb. 1670. On 21 Feb. 1671, Derckien Hermanse BOERTGENS, Jan's wife, acknowledged owing Goosen Gerritse 318 guilders or beaver skins, for which she pledged her "winter wheat, house, barn, ricks, land, and soil behind Kinderhook".

On 31 May 1671 Jan purchased from Robert Orchard and Jannecken Donckers "a certain parcel of land lying behind Kinderhook, adjoining to the south Dirck De Sweed [aka Dirk Hendrickse Bye] to the west Jacob martense and the kil and easterly a little brook dividing the same from the land of Andries Hanse [Sharp]" for the sum of 70 beaver skins. Derckine Hermanse acknowledged her debt to Jan Bruyns for that amount and promised to pay "thirty next spring, 1672, and the remaining forty beaver skins also in the spring". In default of this payment, she promised to pay as interest 4 beaver skins a year and if she could not pay in beaver skins then with good winter wheat "at beaver and market price, therefore pledging specially her land and bowery behind Kinderhook".

On 7 Feb. 1675, Herman Bastiaensen Visscher was given a contract to build a house at Kinderhook for Jan Martensen, and later on 14 March 1676 he received pay for building a barn and clearing land.

In 1683 the records of the Albany Dutch Reformed Church show that Jan Martensen, his wife and all of his children except Herman, were members. In Sept. 1682 Derckien de Wever was paid for board and care of Jan Cornelissen. Again in Sept. 1684 Jan Martense was paid 135 guilders for three months board of Jan Cornelissen.

On 16 June 1697 Jan de Wever was a resident in the Rensselaerswyck colony with two children and no women in his family. It would appear his wife was dead at this point, and whether the children were grandchildren or children is not known. Tradition states that Jan died about 1698 and both he and his wife were buried under the church at Kinderhook.

The surname VAN ALSTYNE does not appear until 1689 in Albany church records. Prior to that date, Jan used the patronymic Martensen, meaning son of Marten. His children used Janse or Jansen, meaning son of Jan. The surname has been found as Van Alstyn, Van Valsteyn, Van Aalstein, Van Aelstein and VAn Alstyne. Herman Jansen continued the name without the Van, and in some cases it became Alston.
