In 1858, Lewis Ford, conveyed to his daughter, Sarah Tuers, several lots in the Township of Hanover. These lots were located, in part, along Alfred Ford’s line and Edwin Ford’s line, suggesting that they were part of the collective family’s land holdings, at one time considerable in the area.

Albrecht Zabriskie was, among other things, a man of many names.

Born in the Poland/Prussian area in 1638, Albrecht Sobieska grew to manhood under the auspicious albeit warrior-like Prussian Sobieska family and was cousin to the last king of Poland, James III. (However, it should be noted that in that area in those times, the monarch was elected, not an inheritable status. So, though no royal blood ran through his veins any more than if one were related to a president in the United States, he was descended from a family of fierce warriors and strategists.) Albrecht's father as a warrior himself, but the family calling did not so much call to Albrecht as distantly murmur in bored tones, perhaps. That is to say, he was totally uninterested in a vocation which involved wielding a sword on a blood-strewn battlefield. His father wasn't apparently much into acknowledging the lack of war lust in his son, but he was not blind to Albrecht's intelligence, sending him to a Protestant school in Holland with the hopes that he could earn an education as well as preaching the Reformation of the church. Albrecht, however, did not favor the rigid puritanical tenets of the institute and eventually ran away. He travelled without coin or a discernible job, from city to city until being seized by the Prussian authorities to be drafted for their armies. In Amsterdam, he made a disappearing act and escaped aboard a ship named "The Fox", under the name of "Albert Saboriski" (listed in entry as being "from Prussia"). It was August of 1662 and he was heading to the New World. (List of Inhabitants of Colonial New York, pg. 170.)

For thirteen years, Albrecht Zabriskie essentially disappears from record, only to reappear in 1675, when an "Albert Zaborowsky" was reported trading with the Tappans; notably Mamshier, Metetoch and Chechepowas. This remains a fascinating tidbit for me. Not only was he trading with them, he spoke their languages. He had a name they'd given him ("Totlock"). Myself personally, I suspect that he had been living amongst the natives for those thirteen years, thus why no english record of him appears in any official record for over a decade. Also, he may have (mind you, these are speculations on my part) been feeling a bit paranoid about the Prussian government finding him again and forcing him into service. It makes sense to me that he would appear after deciding that they weren't after him and he'd established a niche for himself to exploit. In 1676, we find him at Bergen, New Jersey, where met Machtelt (Matilda) Van der Linden, daughter of Yost Van der Linden, and later married her on December the 17th of that very year. At the beginning of 1676 (January 6th, to be precise), he had negotiated a land deal between the Hackensack sachem Tantaque and a Dutch company between the Hackensack River and the west branch of Overpeck Creek. He continues to do this negotiating for years, under slightly different names. Albert Saberasky. Albert Sabboresco. Albert Saberiscoe.

He gains from his own negotiations, as well. For instance, on June 1, 1702, Orachanap (aka Metachenak), Coovnag and Nomerascon (Tappan Indians) conveyed a tract of 1,200 acres on the southeast side of Saddle River, called Weerommensa, to "Albert Zaborowsky". On March 29, 1708, Albert Zaborowsky conveyed the "full, true and equal half" of this tract to a Thomas Van Buskerk, to what what can assume would at least have been a decent profit (given the evidence of Albrecht's intelligence and savvy).

He died on September 1, 1711 at the age of 73 and was buried at Hackinsack. He left no will and his lands were apparently divided among his children the following summer.

The various aliases he was known as are as follows: Albrecht Zaborowskij, Albert Saboriski, Albrecht Sobieska, Olbracht Zaborowski, Albert Zabriskie, Albert Saboroscoe, Albert Saberasky, Albert Sabboresco, Albert Saberiscoe, Albert Zaborowsky, Albert Zaberoski and "Totlock" (among the Hackensack, Lenni Lenape and Tappan Indian tribes).

Chris Crawford Notes:

With Hannah at Early Sr.’s house in 1850 is a “Margaret Carson,” 22, born in Ireland. Suggestive that this may be Hannah’s sister.

And the 1897 Brooklyn (Lain) Directory lists, GRANGER Anna  M. wid. Jas. F.  h 8 Utica Ave, suggesting that Mary Ann, Hannah, are the same persons.

Bob Granger Notes:
Found in the 1850 census when she was living with Early at 145 Carll Street, also living there was a 22 year-old named Margret Carson living with her (remember that name).  Not finding “Hannah” in other sources, I reasoned that as young she may have re-married.  I did a search on 13 year old Mary A. and turned her up in 1860 living with her mother, this time listed as "Anne M.'.  Her brother James F. was listed as Jas. Frances and was the right age.  But surprise, surprise there was also listed a Wm R. Granger  a  7 year old.  That would mean he was born about three years after James death.  I tried to connect him to some other member of the family, but couldn't.  In the 1870 census the family is still together and this time Hannah is listed as Ann M.  By 1880 Mary Ann has married Joseph Kelty ( transcribed incorrectly as Kelly, see hand written) and Ann and James are living with her at 959 Atlantic ave.  William is gone. 

A search on William, born in 1853, turns him up married to an Ellen and working as a BRICK MASON.  A quick look at N.Y. vital records turned up a marriage certificate for Willam and Ellen Dowden, married on 28 Apr. 1874.  (Copy in file)  Williams father is listed as James and his mother is listed as Maria Carson.  I wasn't sure about the C in Carson but my wife pointed out the C in Catholic on the first page.  Is the initial "M" for Maria?  Was the Margret Carson in the 1850 census a younger sister?  I found a Margaret Carson that arrived from Ireland on 10 May 1850.  James died in Feb. and the actual census date for 1850 was July.  Could she have been sent for and arrived in that period of time?

Anyway In 1900 Hannah is now Anna M. and caring for three of Mary Ann's children ( Mary Ann passed in 1887, and James F. in 1885).  I can find no further mention of William and indeed Anna states (1900 census) that all three of her children have passed.  Anna herself passes in 1903 and is buried Green-Wood.

Jan Pietersen Haring was born in Hoorn, Holland on December 26, 1633. This date is reported as having appeared in family Bible records and is also in the Haring Family Notebook which appears on the source website, Dutch Door Genealogy.

That his family was from Hoorn was confirmed in 2005 in a communication to historian Firth Haring Fabend from the archivist at the Westfries Archives
in the Netherlands. He says:

"Indeed Jan Pietersz Haring was present in Hoorn on May 25, 1680 when the Hoorn notary Cornelis Nopper wrote his notarial deed. This deed concerned the inheritance of Ariaantje Claas, widow of Cornelis Pietersz
Metselaar, a brother of Jan Pietersz Haring who was one of the successors."

"A metselaar is a brick layer. A 'successor' in this sense means that JPH was one of his brother's heirs. It is amazing that this record survives, as 90% of the seventeenth-century records in Westfries have disappeared."

It's interesting that the surname "Haring" was used to refer to JPH at this date, when surnames were not all that common. Note that he was referred to as "Jan Pietersz Haring of New Netherland". Although he probably only lived in this country for little more than 20 years, he made significant contributions, most especially as the leader of the Tappan Patent group, which acquired 16,000 acres of an area that straddles the present New York/New Jersey line, on the west side of the Hudson River.

Jan Pietersen Haring married Grietje Cosyns as her second husband at Whitsuntide in 1662. Whitsuntide (i.e. White Sunday, from the custom of wearing white on that day) is Pentecost (in Dutch, Pinxster). The
record of this marriage has not been found, and this information is from family records. The Haring Family Notebook is available on the source website. The original is now in the manuscript collection of the Library of the DAR in Washington, D.C. The Notebook states that theirs was the first marriage at the New Dutch Church on Stuyvesant's Bowery in New York. Do. Henricus Selyns ministered both in Brooklyn and at Stuyvesant's Bowery from 1660 to 1664, but it is not known at what date a church building was constructed. There is nothing, however, that contra-indicates the Notebook record of the marriage.

Her parents, Cosyn Gerrits and Vroutje Gerrits, are recorded as members of the New Amsterdam church in the late 1650's. During the time that Domine Selyns ministered on Sunday evenings at Stuyvesant's chapel at the Bowery, Cosyn and Vroutje must have been members there, because it is recorded that they rejoined the New Amsterdam church after Selyns returned to the Netherlands because of the illness of his father. This record appears in the membership lists between the entries for 1664 and 1665. Daughter Grietje Cosyns is listed separately there, and at that time she was already married to Jan Pietersen Haring. On October 28, 1668 JPH himself joined the New Amsterdam church as Jan Pieterszen Hearing, but his
name never appears in the Stuyvesant Chapel records, which are themselves found with the records of the Brooklyn church.

Jan Pietersen's name appears in the records for the first time at the birth of his second child and first daughter, Vroutje, in 1667. The baptism of his first child, his son Pieter, does not appear. It should be noted that his birthdate August 13, 1664, as recorded in the Haring Family Notebook, was after
Do. Selyns had returned to the Netherlands. The last baptism performed by Do. Selyns was July 20, 1664, and the next baptism recorded was October 16, 1666, so there is an obvious gap in those records. JPH and Grietje had six more children (including Vroutje) - a total of four sons and three daughters, all of whose baptisms are recorded in the Dutch Reformed Church records of New York.

Grietje Cosyn had been married previously to Harmen Theuniszen on 19 April 1654. They baptized a daughter Vroutje in 1658, but this child did not survive.

Jan Pietersen Haring served as a schepen - the Court Minutes of New Amsterdam for 1674 read as follows:

"From the nomination made by the Outside People beyond the Fresh Water, the W:Court with the approbation of the Honorable Governor General, have elected and confirmed as Magistrates for the ensuing year:
Jan Pietersen Haaring,
Adriaen Cornelissen, Old Schepens
Jacob Pietersen de Groot,
Wolphert Webber, New Schepens
Which aforesaid Magistrates are hereby authorized and empowered, after having taken the customary oath at the hands of the W:Court here, to govern the Outside People in their district according to the instruction granted them to this effect: - further regulating themselves according to all such orders and instructions as shall in addition be given them from time to time. Done, City Hall of the City N: Orange 2nd October 1674.

Schepens received a salary and were entitled to the Great Burger Right, which meant they could run a business, carry on a trade, vote and run for office. They were empowered to give final judgment on all cases involving sums of less than a hundred guilders and had full power in all criminal cases.

There is a record in the Andros Papers dated 1676 of a group of men applying for land which reads as follows:

Then in the Andros Papers in 1677/78 there is a note
referring to:

"The Land of Wolford Webber and Jon: Peterson Hering knowne by the Name of The Land Hills"

("Land Hills" should properly read "Sand Hills".)

This brief reference does confirm that the "Jno. Peterson: wheelemaker" of the previous application for land was indeed Jan Peterse Haring, and that the land was granted.

JPH's father-in-law Cosyn Gerritsen is known to have been a wheelmaker, and whether JPH learned the trade from him, or had apprenticed to learn it earlier is not known.

JPH's most significant accomplishment was as the head of the group of 13 families who purchased the land known as the Tappan Patent. The deed to purchase the land from the Indians was in 1681/2, and the final grant was in 1686. Unfortunately JPH died without settling on the land. His widow married Daniel DeClark, a man 12 years her junior, in 1685. The house in Tappan most commonly known as the DeWint House was built for Grietje by her third husband, with the date 1700 over the door - it is the oldest house
standing in Rockland County.

Jan Pietersen Haring died on December 7, 1683.

Robert Granger III holds the family records for this side of the Granger family, and has provided primary information, to include burial circumstances, which may be considered unusual, but where friends helped one another.

When Robert Sr. passed suddenly in 1935 there was no money to purchase a plot.  Mrs. Brauch, a neighbor of Mary Schaum (mother of Elizabeth) gave her husbands plot to Elizabeth.  Mrs. Brauch's family had a large plot and she chose to be buried with them.  When Elizabeth died in 1946 my father had the head stone cut the family decided to honor Mr. Brauch and make sure that he was remembered.

In a similar case Charles Schaum (father of Elizabeth) and Genevieve (2yr. old daughter of Elizabeth) are also buried in Lutheran cemetery (now All Faiths) in a plot that was purchased by Otto Klauhammer in 1892.  There is no headstone on this plot I have the deed.  Klauhammer arrived in this country in 1883 and married in 1889.  I find no connection of any kind on this one.  One mystery solved another not so much.

I have reason to believe that Mary Schaum and at least one of her daughters are also in Lutheran.  I have to get there and check with the office.

I also found Harriet (sister of Thomas).  She married John Thomas Shearer and lived out her life in Brooklyn and Queens.  I will forward a family group sheet when I can.

The first settlement of Jersey City (Bergen) was at Communipaw, which stretched roughly from what is now Johnston Avenue on the north to Caven Point on the south, where an indentation of New York Bay called South Cove or Communipaw Bay (now filled in by the railroads and developed as town houses) reached up to what became Phillips Street, just east of Central Railroad of New Jersey tracks, along the waterfront. The Massacre at Communipaw, refers to a violent massacre of 80 natives by the Dutch in retribution for a single murder of a colonist by a member of the local tribe, for which the tribe had already paid atonement, but would not bring forward the perpetrator. It is here that one of the original progenitors of our family nearly met with death. William Kieft, a notoriously cruel, and vicious tyrant, who at the time was Director General, on the night of 24 Feb 1643 hatched a plan to attack a peaceful gathering of Indians who had sought refuge in Pavonia from attacks by the Mohawks. (Krieft was the Director General for the United New Netherlands Company from 1638, until relieved by Peter Stuyvesant in May 1647).

Dirck Straatmaker lived on the bluff near where the old Central Railroad crossed the Morris Canal. The morning after the Indian massacre of Feb.25, 1643, Dirck and his wife went to the scene, along with an English settler to plunder what they could. She was carrying her son Jan, who was less than a year old. The fact that there is no record of his baptism at New Amsterdam suggests that they might have been new arrivals. The soldiers, who accompanied them there, had to leave and warned Dirck of the Indians, but he replied, ”There is no danger. If there were a hundred savages, none of them would hurt us.” As the soldiers were leaving they heard a shriek, and upon returning found Dirck mortally wounded, his wife dead, and the Englishman alive with the only weapon among them. Although this was the beginning of a period of unrest that cost the Dutch many more lives well into 1645, the child was saved and was raised by Classie Teunis in New Amsterdam.
Ref: 1. N.Y. Genealogical and Biographical Record,Vol.56, pg.262
2.FHL Book #-974.7/B2N

Jan was raised by Classie Teunis, (possibly the widow of Romeijn Teunis), in New Amsterdam after his parent's death. On 19 Feb 1659 Classie Teunis asked the Orphanmasters for money owing to her for boarding him for 16 years (MOM-1-74).

Jan joined the Bergen church 30 Dec 1665 and seems thereafter to be a resident of Bergen, till he moved to Tappan, on 14 Jan 1666. He married Geesje Gerrits the sister of Guert Gerrits. This was the second marriage recorded at Bergen.

On 24 Mar 1686 he was one of the Tappan Patentees and built a house there in 1700. On 18 Mar 1698 he gave a quit-claim to the tract at Communipaw owned by his father.

In about 1680 John Stratmaker from a New Jersey settlement, was one of 14 men who joined with Manhattan Bouwery resident John Pietersen Haring to purchase land from the Tappaen Indians in what became known as the Tappan Patent. Among the others were two Blauvelts, three Smiths, two De Vries, and Claes Manuel from the Bouwery, along with four other men from New Jersey settlements: Cornelius Cooper, Garret Steynmets, Ide Van Vorst, and Staats De Groot. The Tappan Patent lay from north to south from the valley between the Hudson River on the east (not on the river) and the Hackensack River on the west. It was entered by boat from the Hudson up the Tappan Creek. The settlers plan was to avoid the English port duties in New York by trading from the Hackensack River. This plan began to be thwarted by 1684 as the Common Council of New York began the appeal to the New York governor to include East Jersey land in the New York territories. The dispute with the English over this land went on through various divisions of the land until 1769 as the land was surveyed, conveyed, and titled to the founding families heirs.

HIs life was chronicled in Tappan by the following events:

He witnessed the Baptism of Joanna Steynmets, daughter of Caspar Steynmets and Jannetje Gerrits 29 Dec 1667. (Ber 22)

Re. Tappan Patent, 1683: "The remaining five shares belonged, one share each, to people from settlements on the west side of the Hudson - Bergen (Jersey City), Ahasymus (Weehawken), and Hoboken. They were Ide Van Vorst, Cornelis Claesen Cooper, Garret Steynmetz, Jan Straatmaker [John Stratmaker of Hobogen, NJ], Staats De Groot." "Tappan 300 Years", W. Talman, et al; Tappantown Hist. Soc., Tappan, NY, 1988, pg. 20

In 1683, the County of Orange, named for William of Orange (King William III), which included present-day Rockland County, was formed. In 1686 the Town of Orangetown was created by a royal grant in the Tappan Patent. Shortly after 1686, the few inhabitants in lands northward were united with it for the purpose of assessment and court jurisdiction.

We have conflicting information regarding Jacob Young Turse’s parents. The Blauvelt Genealogy has his father, Lawrence, as son of Jacob Toers and Aaltje Blauvelt, which we believe is correct, but the Ackerman Genealogy has Laurence married to Ann Ackerman, which we believe is incorrect for this line. We show Ann or Hannah Ackerman married to Laurence Tuers, s/o Abraham Toers and Rachel (not verified - please notify us if this record needs to be edited).

We have Jacob’s Bible in our files. It gives the spelling of his name as TURSE, while much of the family continued to use the TUERS form of the name. This same spelling was taken by Aaron TURSE family of Westwood, NJ, although name variants appeared in public records until after 1890.

Jacob Y. Turse’s Bible gives his birth date as 6 July 1822, a considerable variance from the RDC Paramus Baptism Record.

1850 Census Washington Township, Bergen, NJ 31 Aug 1850, lists Jacob Tures, age 27, Farmer, and Caroline, age 24. Dwelling #939.

Other members of household: Jane, age 17, Cordelia, age 1, Harry Jackson, age 6 (Black) born New Jersey.

1860 Census, Washington Township, Bergen, NJ 7 July 1860 lists Jacob’s age as 37. Living with him are wife Caroline, age, 35; son John H, age 6; servant, Betsy Vreeland, age 30; John Storm, age 7; and, Laborer, C...illegible Post, age 49.

We have seen John J Tuers in other databases given as son of Joseph Tuers and Gertrude Welsh, but this is in error, since we have very accurate records of this family from their heirs.
