ber 8, 1766 ; m. 2d Mary Austin, November 25, 1797.
ii. Marritje* ; bap. June 19. 1748.
iii. Abraham 4 ; bap. September 12, 1750.

12. Henry. 4 This maybe the Henry Braser who received £14 10 sh.
July 18, 1755, for going express from Pokeepsie to Albany and Norwalk,
and September 2, 1755, received £7 10 sh. for going express to call the
assembly at Albany ; but he was young at that time. There is more
reason for supposing he was the second lieutenant in the company of
Prussian Blues, Col. Lasher's regiment, N. Y. militia, who voted to enter
the service of Congress against the king in 1776. There was a Henry
Brass, Jr., commander of a polaque, 6 guns, in March, 1761, of which
Lewis Pintard was owner. He m. Lucy Clark February 6, 1764 ; they
had :

i. Abraham 5 ; b. July 26, bap. August 10, 1766.
ii. Elizabeth 5 ; b. January 21, bap. February 19, 1769.
iii. Lucy 5 ; b. November 18, 1770 ; bap. January 3, 1773, N. V.

15. vii. Jacob 6 ; m. Sarah Black.*
viii. Susan 5 ; unmarried.*
ix. Sarah 5 ; m. Geo. Black, brother of Sarah Black Brasher.*

13. Abraham was a gunsmith, made freeman November 3, 1747; m.
July 13, 1758, Helena, daughter of Cornelius and Hester (Cannon)
Kortright. Helena was b. 1739, and d. November 3, 181 9. Hester was
daughter of John Cannon. Abraham died at Morristown, N. J., 17S2,
and was buried there. Their children were :

i. Judith 5 ; b. May 29, 1759 ; m. Col. Fitch Hall, Boston, and
d. October 20, 181 1.

ii. Cornelius 5 ; b. October 28, 1760; d. August 29, 1 76 1.

iv. Elizabeth 5 ; b. September 2, 1766 ; m. John Pintard; d. Octo-
ber 13, 1838.

v. Abraham 5 ; b. February iS, 1769; d. December 17, 1769.

vi. Hester 5 ; b. July 6, 1770; d. Septembers, 1771.

i853-
x. Abraham 5 ; b. December 19, 1777; d. 1813.

14. Abraham 1 was a saddler, made freeman New York, February 9, 1769.
I believe him to be the second lieutenant in Lasher's grenadier company,
1776, member of the Committee of One Hundred, and the New York
Provincial Congress, 1775, called colonel in 1776-7, and representative
in the Legislature, 1777-83.

15. Jacob 5 and Sarah Black had issue ;
Benjamin" Brasher.

Charles" Brasher.

* i.-v. are from the records ; vi.-ix. are from information furnished by the family.

Wm. Price" ; d. young.

Ida Brasher 6 ; m. Albert Matthews. She is Regent of the D. A.

R., at Hillsboro, Ohio, and has one child surviving, Helen

Brasher' Matthews.

Elizabeth 6 Brasher remembers her grandfather, who was called Captain

Henry and came to Ohio in 1790, and settled near Cincinnati, just over

the Indiana line.

There are some names among my notes that I cannot place in this
genealogy, but believe them to be of the family, so I add them for preser-
vation.

Hendrick Bresser, Kingston, N. Y. ; m. Jannetje Terwilliger. They
had : Een, bap May 20, 1733 ; Meads Brasier, m. Elizabeth Dash, Octo-
ber 23, 1770; Francis Brasier, m. Elizabeth Beekman ; she was born
August 30, 1738, and died November 9, 1810.

Thomas Brazier, doorkeeper of the Legislature 1719-22, paid for
express to Connecticut, June, 1719, by Gov. Hunter £11 sh. 17 d.5.
July 19 asked appointment as gunner at Fort George, N. Y., and October
22 was paid £6 for services by Gov. Burnet.

Philip Brazier or Brasher m. Hester Ling December 1 1, 1766. This
man was a lawyer, Asst. Alderman 3d Ward 1 799-1 800, Alderman 1802,
and Alderman 2d Ward 1803-4. There were probably two of this name,
for one was adjutant of Col. Lasher's militia regiment at same time with
Lt. Abraham above. There was also a representative in the New York
Legislature with this name from New York in 1816, 1822-3, 1826-8,
and from Kings Co. 1834-5. Philip Brasner had a book plate made by
Maverick.

9. Femmetje 3 Van Borsum (Hermanus 2 , Egbert') was baptized at Brook-
lyn, March 20, 1681. She married first Jan Meldrum (or Milldrum)
May 4, 1704 (N. Y. Gen. and Biog. Rec, Vol. I, p. 26), and by him
had two children who were baptized in the Reformed Dutch Church at
New York, as follows :

i. Anna Catharina 4 , bap. 'March 4, 1705; sponsors, Frans Van

Dyck and Wybrug Van Borsom.
ii. Johannes 4 , bap. February 6, 1707; sponsors, Philipus Van
Bossum and Wyburg Van Bossum, widow.

Femmetje 3 Van Borsum married second Alexander Clarke, January
13, 1 7 1 4 (Reformed Dutch Church, New York City), by whom she had
four children. Alexander Clarke was made a freeman in New York
City, April 24, 1716. He was then a mariner. On February 24,
1725-26, about the time of the birth of his first son, a deed was made to
Alexander Clarke by Philipus Van Borsum, his brother-in-law, conveying
a lot on the south side of Wall Street, which was part of the land deeded
by Annetje Van Borsum to her son Hermanus, October 1, 16S4. A
house was built upon this lot, which was directly opposite the First
Presbyterian Church. Here Alexander and Femmetje Clarke lived. The
property remained in the Clarke family until March 25, 1793, when
Femmetje's grandchildren sold it to Edward Livingston for ^"850. The
entrance to the New York Stock Exchange now stands upon this lot.
(Liber 49 of Cons, page 159 N. Y. Reg.) In the deed of this property
the grantors refer to the (act that this lot was conveyed by Phillip Van
Borsum to their grandfather, " Elisher" Clarke. In the records of the
old Mayor's Court of New York there appears to have been a judgment
recovered, April 24, 1720, against the heirs of Elias Boudinot by Alexan-
der and Femmetje Clarke for "goods sold." From this it may be in-
ferred that Alexander Clarke gave up the sea and became a merchant.

Femmetje Van Borsum died November 15, 1760, in the eightieth year
of her age, and was buried from her house in Wall Street in the burying
ground of the Old Dutch Church in Garden Street, New York City, in
accordance with her wish. This appears by an entry made by her son
John Clarke in her family Bible. This Bible is now in possession of her
great-great-great-great-grandson. Henry Schieffelin Clark, of New York
City. The time of Alexander Clarke's death is uncertain.

Alexander Clarke and Femmetje Van Borsum had the following chil-
dren, all baptized in the Reformed Dutch Church, New York City :

i. Anna Catharina 4 , bap. December 2, 1719 ; sponsors, Philip-
pus Van Bossum and Margretje Van Bossum, his wile.

23. ii. Catharina 4 , bap. July 22, 1722 ; sponsors, Philippus Van
Bursem and Wyburg Van Borsum.
