was, however, restored to favor in 1669 by
Governor Lovelace, who appointed him one
of the overseers of New Dorp (Hurley). In
the same year he was granted the privilege of
setting up tanning vats and a brewing house.
He was one of the petitioners for the ap-
pointment of a minister, who could speak both
Dutch and English ; served as a mustering
officer : on April 5, 1670, was a sergeant in
Captain Henry Pawling's company of militia,
and in 1673 was captain of a company com-
posed of men from Hurley and Marbletown.

He died at Hurley, February 27, 1679, and
in 1685 his widow was granted three hundred
and twenty acres of land on account of his
public service. Children: Arie, Heyman,
Jan, Albertse, Ikee, Maritje, Neeltien, Jan-
nitje, Aert, Annatje, Guert.

(H) Jan Albertse, third son of Albert Hey-
man and W'yntje (Allard) Roosa, resided in
Hurley, New York. He married Hillegond
VVillems \^an Buren. The family came from
Holland and was known by the name of Wil-
liams. He was a town officer, October 19,
1708.

(HI) Albert Jansen, son of Jan Albertse
and Hillegond (Williams) Roosa, resided in
Hurley, New York, where he received deeds
for land March 24, 1724, and September 27,
1742. He was elected colonel of the Hurley
militia, April 5, 1720; fence viewer in 1721 ;
trustee, 1722-27-32-37. In 1738 his name ap-
pears on the muster roll of a foot company
commanded by Captain Cornelis Wynkoop.
He married, in 1709, Rebecca Schepmoes, bap-
tized at Kingston, New York, November 6,
1687, daughter of Derick and Marye (Wil-
liams) Schepmoes. They had children bap-

(IV) Abraham, second son of Albert Jan-
sen and Rebecca (Schepmoes) Roosa, was
baptized March 23. 1718, in Kingston, New
York, and probably resided at Hurley, which
was under the ecclesiastic jurisdiction of
Kingston. Because of the remoteness of resi-
dence it is apparent that many members of
this family were not recorded at Kingston.
The banns for the marriage of Abraham
Roosa to Elizabeth Rutsz were published
June 17, 1744, at Kingston, and they were
given a certificate July 8, following, but the
date of marriage is not in the church records.
She was baptized November 15, 1724, ac-
cording to the Kingston church records, and
was born at Rosendaal, daughter of Tacob and
Lea (Nienwkcrk') Rutsz. The baptism of
three of their children are recorded at Kings-
ton. Albert, April 7. 1745; Lea, April 12,
1747; Jacob. December 31, 1749. It is prob-
able that their parents removed about this time
to a remote section of Ulster county, or to
Orange county.

(V) Isaac Abrahamsc. son of Abraham and



Elizabeth (Rutsz) Roosa, was a soldier in the
revolutionary army. He first was a private
in the Albany Company Militia, Second Regi-
ment; he was commissioned September 20,
