Jan Danielse — Daniel's oldest son, was born about 1670, in Schenectady; he married Angnieta Vedder in 1700; he died 20th Jan., 1756. He probably never lived in the village except during Indian invasion, though as an active soldier in the militia it might have been necessary for him to put his family with friends for safety while the men did yeoman's service as scouts. The writer has been unable to locate his village lot, if he had any.

In 1695/6 he was one of Lt. Bickford's party of volunteers (162-1) who chased and captured a squad of deserters from the garrison.
