He was a son of Harmen Myndertse Van de Bogart, who came over to New Netherland in 1631, as surgeon in the ship Eendracht. (172-4)

Frans was born in New Amsterdam in 1640, came to Schenectady among the early settlers and was killed in the massacre of 1690. His son Claas (and probably the father also) owned a lot in the village on the north side of Front street (near the north gate), having a front of 131 Amsterdam feet on the street and 51 feet on the river. This parcel of ground comprises the lots of the late Gen. Jacob Swits, Henry Rosa, and John McMichael. (172-5)

His farm lay on the south side of the river at and below the Saratoga railroad bridge, and a portion of it still belongs to his descendants. (172-6)
