a. Note:   BARENT VAN KLEECK born 1677 Albany, died 1750 Dutchess County, New York. His father, Baltus Barents, had purchased land 1697 at Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County, New York. He was listed as Balthzer Van Cleake of Long Rock, Dutchess Co. In 1700, he was Captain of the Militia of Ulster and Dutchess Counties. In 1714, he was a member of the 24 member Colonial Assembly. In 1702, he built the first substantial house in Poughkeepsie. It was torn down in 1835. The stone lintel of the main door had carved "B V K -- T V K -- ANO 1712 G E X J V K" This was broken into three pieces preserved in the basement of the Matthew Vassar home on the southeast corner of Mill and Vassar Streets. BARENT VAN KLEECK married 27 August 1701 at Poughkeepsie to ANTOINETTE PARMENTIER. She was baptized 27 July 1684 at Bushwick, Long Island (the daughter of Mickel Parmentier and Cornelia Damen and grand-daughter of PIETER PARMENTIER and Antoinette Terren).
  The Parmentiers were French Huguenots. Some fled to England in 1520 to escape the massacre. PETER was one of the Manheim Refugees who came to this country with Jan Louwes Bogaart on the SPOTTED COW April 1663, and they were neighbors for many years.
  BARENT AND ANTOINETTE VAN KLEECK had thirteen children, most baptized in the Kingston Dutch Reformed Church. OUR line comes through the 11th child:
  PETER VAN KLEECK baptized 1 June 1725 married 22 June 1746 in First Reformed Dutch Church, Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County, New York to ANNATJEN FREER. The Will of Peter Van Kleeck 25 May 1793 and recored 11 November 1793 lists: wife Anntje and children Peter, Jeremiah, Levi, Cate, Hendricus, Barent, Simeon, Antoinette, Mary, Trientje, and Deborah. ...[18th Century Records of Dutchess Co. by Helen W. Reynolds]
  Peter Van Kleeck born 1725 married Annatjen Freer baptized 5 October 1729 Kingston #3941 (daughter of Zalmon/Solomon FREER and Claartje Westvaal). Claartje was baptized 31 October 1700 Kgn #1199 (daughter of Johannes Westvaal and Marritje Cool). Marritje Cool was baptized 7 March 1666 Kgn #68, daughter of Jacob Barentsen Cool and Marietje Symens. SOLOMON FREER was the son of ABRAHAM FREER who married 1694 to Aeltjen Titsoort. Abraham Freer was the son of the early settler of New Paltz HUGO FREER.
  This is a point at which things get a bit confusing. According to "Tangled Roots and Twisted Branches", there are at least two competing theories as to the parentage of my great great great grandfather, Jeremiah VAN KLEECK (1805 - 1885). Here is what the book has to say:
  According to Dr. Edward Van Kleeck, long deceased, of Albany, OUR Jeremiah Van Kleeck born 1805 was son of Jeremiah Van Kleeck (1755/6 - 1832) and his wife, Antje Van Bommel, who, in turn, was son of Peter 1725 - 1793. Now more recently William T. Van Kleeck, Seattle, Wash. states that "Jeremiah Van Kleeck born 1805 is the son of Peter Van Kleeck born 1773/4" to Barent Peter Van Kleeck and his wife, Hannah DuBois. This Peter VK born 1773 died Sept 1884 Woodstock. (This death date is probably wrong - it would make him 111 years old at death - not impossible, but very unlikely -- RT)
  Peter Van Kleeck 1773 - 1884 married his cousin, Hannah / Antoinette Van Kleeck (daughter of Barent B. Van Kleeck and Tryntje Outwater).
  Proof for this assumption is found in UL. CO. Deed Bk71:pg334 in which Jeremiah and his wife Sally Van Kleeck sign, with Barney Van Kleeck and his wife Hannah E. Van Kleeck, an indenture dated 14 April 1845. No baptism records have yet been found for OUR JEREMIAH. We have only Bible records.
  Barnard Van Kleeck 1800 - 1870 and his wife Hannah 1808 - 1871 are buried in Bushkill Cemetery in Van Kleeck fenced-in plot (the fence was long gone when I visited in 2002 - RT). OUR JEREMIAH buried in Palentown. OUR JEREMIAH VAN KLEECK was born 18 July 1805 Dutchess Co. [Bible Record] and married 10 April 1828 to Sally Every / Avery born 7 October 1809 in Delaware County to URIAH AVERY and Miriam Hill.
