Marc, Just another little note on Anthony Jansen. The article was talking about the large purchase of lands by Antonie Jansen(Van Salee) I list the quote from an article written in Benjamin F. Thompson, History of Long Island. 3rd Ed. New York, 1918. Vol IIII page 109 as a footnote on bottom of page. *There is an existing tradition that this Antonie Jansen Van Salee was by birth a Moor, and came from a place called Salee on the coast of Africa, which caused the addition to his name, to distinguish him from another person of the same name. As there is no known reason why the Dutch governor should make so extensive a grant to a native of Africa, it may be more probable that he may have been a Dutchman, who, for puposes of commerce had resided at Salee, and thus aquired the above distinction. He is said to have been a man of prodigious strength; and William a brother of his, is reported to have carried ten bushels of wheat from his barn to the house, a distance of fifty yards, and then upstairs to the garret.
