The full credit for all the wonderful research of this chapter must be accorded to Professor Pearson; to the aid of the distinguished archivist, the Hon. John Sanders has added his valuable contribution derived from research, personal knowledge and the history that comes reliably down from father to son. Wherever a family has died out and their blood no longer flows here, its name has been left out. It is intended in this chapter to give those families only whose blood still runs in the veins of descendants.

First we give the descendants of the original proprietors.

The Van Curler blood is no longer in Schenectady. Brouer left no children. Van Velsen's whole family was massacred. There is no trace of any descendant of Peter Adrian. De Winter left no children. Catalina Bradt, widow of Arent Andrias Bradt, for whom he was attorney, was the real owner of the premises held in his name, and her her genealogy can be easily traced in these pages. The Schermerhorns, one of the oldest and certainly the most eminent of the early settlers, is mingled with the name of her well known husband.
