Hi, I read your e-mail, on Paulus Jurckse and I thought this information might help.
Indicates that the Jurckse family originated from Texel, the largest island in the West Frisian Islands across the Waddensee from t he mainland of Holland. Paulus was seen in Rensselaerwyck, New York, (on the east bank of the Hudson River, south of Albany) on 08/13/1642. Paulus was a servant for the family of Maichael Jansz and married his daughter Christina(Styntie) Janse. By 1658 he lived in Esopus, Ulster County and later, Albany.
