l8o Editorial, Obituary. [July,


We have been watching with much interest the quiet, steady, unosten-
tatious labor of our friend and correspondent, Mr. Ralph Lefevre, editor of the
New Paltz (N. Y.) Independent. He has been collecting data of the early
freeholders of the New Paltz Patent, which he has published for some time in
his paper, besides many historic articles of much interest and value. Of the
families already published we notice Bontecoe, Lefevre, Hasbrouck, Dubois^
Relje, Bevier, Freer, and others. Mr. Lefevre has obtained possession of some
papers which originally belonged to Hugo Freer, one of the patentees, among
which is a certified list of the freeholders in 1712. It is his intention, we
believe, to publish these valuable documents in the columns of the Independent
and we take this occassion to express our appreciation of his public spirited


Dyckman. — At Orange, N. J., January 11, 1901, William Henry Dyckman,

the son of Treadwell, and Mary Van Winkle Ketcham of this city, where he

which subsequently conferred upon him the Master's degree. In 1864 he
received the degree of LL.B. from Columbia University, New York. Subse-
quently he had an office as lawyer at 99 Wall street. He was a member of a
number of societies and clubs. While living at Yonkers, N. Y., he was much
interested in the affairs of that city, representing the Third Ward in its Com-
mon Council, 1880-1882. A daughter, Mrs. Thomas W. Talmadge, resides at
10 E. 63d street. New York. The foregoing statements were found in the

TVT "^"^ '^st meeting of the season 1900-01, was held on the evening of Friday
May 10, but a wild storm prevailed, and the meeting was sparsely attended!
Mr. Isaac Townsend Smith presented an address on "The Treatment of

most prosperous one in every department of the Society's work, and we hope
that the ensuing period will be the same. The members elected at the last

The Librarian wishes to announce that the Library will be closed to all
during the month of August, but during July and September it will be available
to members only, on presentation of a visiting card. This arrangement is
made necessary by the annual cleaning, cataloguing and renovating which
have contributed so materially to the improvement of the Library
