SYMON SYMONSE, the first settler, came early to New Netherland in the service of the West India Company, as boatswain of the ship Prince Maurice. In 1645 he bought a house and lot of Jacob Roy, in New Amsterdam. Soon after he came to Beverwyck, where he purchased or built a house, which in 1654 he offered for sale. He had lately withdrawn from the service of the West India Company, against whom he then held a claim for services of 834 guilders. In 1662, being about to remove to the Esopus, he empowered Johannes Withart to sell his house and lot; but it is evident that he changed his purpose, for in 1663 he hired a bouwery of 25 or 30 morgens, of Gerrit Bancker and Harmen Vedderen, at Schenectady, and still retained possession of his house in Albany as late as 1667. His house and lot in Schenectady, was on the north side of Union Street, 100 Amsterdam feet westerly from Church Street, running through to Front Street, and remained in the family more than a hundred years.

"On Thursday, the 4th instant, about four miles from the city of Schenectady, aside the Mohawk turnpike, sitting under a tree, I discovered Petrus Groot, who was supposed to have been slain in the Oriskena battle under General Herkimer on the 6th of August, in the year 1777. I immediately recognized him, and on conversation with him, he confessed himself to be the person I took him to be. I then carried him to the nearest tavern,* where I left him to be sent to his children and brothers, from whence, however, he departed before day the next morning, and was seen in Albany on Friday. His mental faculties are much impaired, supposed to have, been occasioned by a wound of a tomahawk near the fore part of his head, though he is at most times tolerably rational. His head is bald; the circle or scar of the scalping knife is plainly to be seen on it, and a stab on the side of his neck near his shoulder; has a small scar near his ancle; is a middle sized man, has blue eyes, a long countenance, and stoops much in the shoulders. He speaks English, French, Dutch and Indian, and says he has been last a prisoner among the Indians north of Quebec; had on an old dark grey coat and old brownish pantaloons; has a large pack with him. He refused to go home, as one of his former neighbors whom he saw, would not recognize him, he was fearful his children and brothers would not. He said he would go to the governor's. Being at times deranged, it is feared he will stray too far away for his friends to find him. He is of a very respectable family and connexions. Any person who will take him up and bring him to the subscriber, at Schenectady, shall be well compensated for his care and trouble, and will receive the sincere thanks of his children and relatives, and be the means of relieving this poor unfortunate man from distress by restoring him to his family and friends.
JOHN SANDERS. SCHENECTADY, June 8, 1807.
N. B. The printers in this and the neighboring states are requested to give the above a few insertions in their respective papers, to aid in restoring a poor sufferer to his children and friends, who has been thirty years a prisoner among the Indians. He is now 63 years of age. He was a lieutenant in the militia at the time he was supposed to have been slain."

* The house to which be was taken, was occupied by Simon Van Patten, better known as Cider Simon, from the circumstance of his manufacturing large quantities of cider annually, van Patten identified him by a mark on his leg, occasioned by the bite of a rattlesnake, which he remembered from the circumstance of its having been cured by an Indian applying a leaf through which he sucked the poison with his mouth, leaving it perfectly free from soreness.
