Re: MARIA ACKERMAN, b 1747, Bergen Cty. NJ
I am also searching for clarification of the identity of the wife of Peter/Petrus Bogart.He was bpt. 14 Dec 1746 in Tappan, Orange Co., NY the son of Peter P. Bogart and Rachel Van Horn.Are we talking about the same guy?
According to "The New Harlem Register" by Toler and "History of Harlem" by Riker he married Maria the daughter of William Christie and Catalyntie Demarest.In his will, William Christie names the 4 sons of his deceased daughter Marie as Johannes, Willem, Roelof and Petrus Bogart.Since none of this was contradictory, I accepted it.Recently I found an article by George Zabriskie starting in TAG vol. 43, pg 193 in which he says the wife of Peter was Marie Ackerman.There is no source for this statement.Where did you get your information?
