captain. He was a brewer. He married, May 3, 1730, Arri-
aantje Schepmoes, bom November 12, 1706, died March 26, 1779,
daughter of Derrick and Grietje (Tappen) Schepmoes. She was
baptized, in Kingston, November 17, 1706. She was descended
from Jansz I. Schepmoes, who took a lot in New Amsterdam,
May 18, 1643, and an other, July 6. Her sister, Anna, baptized
September 3, 1704, married Johannes Jansen, and was mother
of Margaret, who married Johannes Wynkoop [95]. Derrick
Schepmoes died February 21, 1725, and his wife, March 3, 1743.

"Miss Peggy Wynkoop" [516], great-aunt of the compiler, left
to him, in 1862, an old Dutch Bible, Dordrecht and Amsteldam
(sic), 1 7 14, in German text, folio, with brass clasps, containing
quaint illustrations. On a fly-leaf, at the back of the book, is
the inscription, " Ariaentie Schepmoes Haer Bijbelannoye 1725."
Then follows an entry of her birth, in 1706, and other entries,
made by her son Dirck, down to 1779, the date of her own
death. The record closes with an entry of Dirck's death, in
1796. On a flyleaf in the front of the book is the record of
Evert 's birth and marriage, and of the births and deaths of his
children, down to 1746. Accompanying this book was a loose
sheet giving Dirck's own family, 1754-61.

Capt. Evert's last will, dated December 19, 1750, unrecorded
and unproved, is in the possession of the compiler. It described
him as of Kingston, and a brewer, and mentioned his wife " Ari-
antje," his sons Derick and Cornelius, and his brother-in-law,
Johannes Jansen. It made provision for his son Cornelius, in
the terms following : " I do hereby direct that he shall be edu-
cated and brought up, out of my estate, and not inferior to
what my son Derick hath had, both as to education and assis-
tance." He gave the executors power to sell the estate, with
this limitation : " Except the orchard and ground lying along the
Green Kill Road, which I bought of the heirs or devisees of
Tunis Tappen, deceased, and my low land over the Esopus
Creek, which I have lately bought of Maj. Hardenbergh and
his children, which two parcels of land are not to be sold, and
I do hereby devise and bequeath the same unto my said two
sons, share and share alike." He appointed his brother-in-
law, Johannes Jansen, David De Lametter, and his son Derick,
executors.

His tombstone stands in the yard of the First Reformed Dutch

baptized January 29, 17 16, son of Christoffel and Cornelia (Vas)
Tappen, who were married April 21, 1715, in Kingston, the
record describing Christopher as bom in Albany. Petrus Tap-
pen and "Chaetje" Wynkoop were witnesses at the baptism of
Mattheus, son of Mattheus Ernest and Anna Maria Bomper.

December 7, 1747, mentioned his wife Tjatje, his children,
Christopher and Cornelia, his brother-in-law, Evert Wynkoop,
and his cousin, Johannis Wynkoop. A child was born after the
date of the will. A copy of this will has come into the hands of
the compiler, certified as follows: "A true copy of the last Will
et Testament of Petrus Tappen. Evert Wynkoop, Johannis
Wynkoop."

A petition for partition recited that Hezekiah, Tobias, and

138. Wilham Wynkoop, Major, (Tobias 40, Evert 4, Cornelius
I,) baptized March 4, 1753, Kingston: died about 80 years of
age, according to one account, and 89, according to an other.
He married Charity Schermerhorn.

Major William was in the battle of Stillwater, in the autumn
of 1777. Nile Frost Wynkoop [780] wrote of him as follows:
"I have heard him tell of the doings there. He said that
General [Benedict] Arnold was under arrest, when the British
and Indians were driving our army back. Arnold mounted his
horse and rode to the front, and meeting his men, gave the com-
mand 'About face' — and they obeyed him, with cheers. They
drove everything before them, until they met the British cavalry,
under General [Simon] Frazer. Then Arnold ordered up twelve
of the best riflemen, and said, pointing at Frazer, ' He is a host
in himself; let me see him no longer.' The fall of Frazer dis-
heartened the British cavalry, and our army was victorious."

Major William, in 1797, was ordered by John Jay, Governor
of New York, to take command of Col. Baldwin's regiment, and
fit them for active service. The commission was preserved, and
fell into the possession of Nile Frost Wynkoop.

William removed to Chemung, in 1783, when his daughter
Hannah was only five years old. The experiences of his family



56 Wynkoop Genealogy

are related by Alonzo Ilus Wynkoop [777], as follows: "I
recollect hearing my mother relate the incidents of the journey
from Esopus to Wilkes-Barre, by wagon, through a wilderness,
and from Wilkes-Barr6 to Tioga Point, now Athens, Penn., by a
flat-boat, up the North Branch of the Susquehanna, more than
one hundred miles, and by canoes up the Chemung, to a neigh-
borhood of Indians, who brought vension to them in abundance,
and treated them kindly. A hunter, who lived with them,
thought it a small matter to kill and bring in a deer, before
breakfast. But there were no mills, and the first wheat that her
father raised was taken by him down the river, in a canoe, to
Wilkes-Barre; and the canoe, containing the fiour, was pushed
home again,* up-stream, more than one hundred miles. In the
second year, Major William built a mill on Wynkoop 's Run,
where Alonzo lived afterward. The mill-stones were worked
from rocks near Towanda, Bradford County, Penn. The early
settlers came many miles to this mill." Nile Frost Wynkoop
[780] adds, that when William had reached Tioga Point, more
than two thousand savages were there, making a treaty with the
white men.

Certificates of survey of land in Chemung County, N. Y., were
granted as follows: Nov. 4, 1788, of survey for William Wyn-
koop, of lot No. I, in the town of Chemung, on the north side
of the Tioga River, 515 acres of land: Nov. 5, 1788, of survey
for Nathan Dennistown, William Wynkoop, and eight other
persons, of lot No. 138, in the town of Chemung, 6400 acres of
land. Certificate was made by James Clinton, Baldwin, Che-
mung County, February 22, 1792, that lot No. 138 was laid out
for the persons mentioned above. ^^4

Charity Schermerhorn was called Alida by Bradley Wynkoop
[635], and her name appears as "Gerretche," in the record of
baptism of her daughter Annatche. She died in October, 18 12,
in Newtown, now Elmira, Chemung County. [Schermer =
sword-fencer.]

Charity had married ist, Van Steinberg, and had a

daughter Eleanor, who was known in the Wynkoop family as
"Aunt Nelly," and who married, July 22, 1790, Guy Maxwell.
The marriage was in Pennsylvania, for the officer, who came to
perform the ceremony, lived in that State, and the couple walked

across the border, to get within his jurisdiction.'ss It seems that
she was known by her step-father's name; for French's Gazette,
page 220, states that the first marriage in the town of Chemung
was of Guy Maxwell and NeUie Wynkoop. After all, that
marriage was not in Chemung, and the bride was not a Wynkoop.
