  • Notes 
    • Allthough we believe that Aaron Vanderbilt owned a well known farm in Bergen since stories are told of him chasing kids from his apple orchard, he is no doubt descended from Jan Aertsen Van der Bilt, who settled in New York. Possibly he is the great-grandson of Aris Janse Vanderbilt, born in New Amsterdam, died 1715 in Bergen. He eventually moved to Morris County. A deed was given the 19th of May 1809 by Benjamin Stockton, William Stockton and wife to Aaron Vanderbilt for a farm described at a place called Pigeon Hill in the township of Hanover, in the County of Morris, NJ.

      In the 1860 Census, we find his daughter, Sarah Prior Vanderbilt remarried to John C. Miller, living in Morris with Eliza and Andrew Tuers, her youngest children. Her daughter, Sarah, age 20, is living close by with husband Alfred Knight, age 25. We haven’t explored all of the family history for this area, but Andrew Jackson Tuers, grandson of Aaron, figures in the history of Morris County as the area is developed.

      We have not found proven records as of 2010 for Aert Van der Bilt, however the probable descendancy is below:

      Aris Janse Vanderbilt, son of Jan Aertsen Vanderbilt and Anneken Hendricks, was born April 1651 in New Amsterdam and died 1715 in Bergen, Hudson, NJ. He married Hilletje Remse Van der Beeck, daughter of Rem Janse Van der Beeck and Jannetje Joris Rapalje, 6 Oct 1677. She was born 16 Sep 1653. They had 10 children:

      Jan Vanderbilt, b 1678, m Ida Suydam
      Annetje Vanderbilt, b 1681, d 1681-82
      Jannetje Vanderbilt, b 1682, m Isabrant Van Cleef
      Femmetje Vanderbilt, b 1684, m Gosen Adrianse Ryerson
      Rem Vanderbilt, b 1686
      Hendrick Vanderbilt, b ca 1690, m Neeltje Van Cleef
      Jacob Vanderbilt, b 24 Jan 1692, d 14 Dec 1760, m 1715 Neeltje Denyse
      Aert Vanderbilt, b 1693, m 14 Mar 1717 Sytie Striker
      Jeremyas Vanderbilt, b 19 Oct 1695, d 1750, m 11 Nov 1715 Peternella Wyckoff
