The following is the Van de Bogart stock, thoroughly colonial and Revolutionary. His people now living are as follows:

Surgeon Van de Bogart left surviving him two sons and one daughter.

Myndert, his oldest son, born May 3d, 1648, married Helena, daughter of Jacob Janse Schermerhorn, and sister of Ryer Schermerhorn, Sr. He came to Schenectady in 1680, and was a very active partisan in Leisler's time, who appointed him justice of the peace in 1690.

In 1686, in company with Robert Sanders of Albany, he purchased 12,000 acres of land in Dutchess county, including the site of the city of Poughkeepsie, and soon after removed with his family and settled upon the tract.

Fraus, youngest son of Surgeon Van de Bogart, born August 26th, 1643, married Ametje Tyerkse, and settled at Schenectady in 1680, where he was killed February 9th, 1690, by the French and Indians. His widow, March 25th, 1692, married Philip Harris of Albany.

Fraus left surviving him two sons, Class and Tjerk.

Class, the oldest son of Fraus, married December 31st, 1699, Barbara, daughter of Tekel Heemstreet of Albany.

He lived on the north side of Front, opposite the north side of Church Street, where the residence of Henry Rosa, Esq., now stands. Takerus died in 1799, a Colonial and Revolutionary soldier, among the best of the military engineers of his day.

Class, another son of Class, born June 11th, 1727, married August 8th, 1752, Rachel, daughter of Joseph Yates. He left four children: Nuna, born September 12th, 1753, married to Abraham Lighthall; Fraus, born February 23d, 1755; Joseph, born November 21st, 1756, and Class Frausen, born March 4th, 1759.
