Am not sure about access to original documents but have several sources with information about the Damen family from, for example,"Register of the Early Settlers of Kings County, Long Island New York" and "Documentary History of the State of New York Vol II" arranged by Hon. Christopher Morgan. Do you have access to a good genealogical library? Check out Damen family on Google . May give you some sources for information if you haven't already looked there. Good luck with your search.
