Re: ORSERS in Westchester Co. NY
I am evidently a victim of Aertsen/Orser confusion.
I'm having a problem with this statement by MacKenzie, and perhaps you can explain it to me:
"William Aertse, son of Aert Willemazen and Wyntje Elberts, born in New Amsterdam about 1640 married Styntje Nagel in 1677. He is recorded a freeman of New York Nov22 1698, a victualer by trade." so far so good.
"About or shortly after 1703 he and his family, except Aert, settled in Philpsburgh on a leasehold just below that of Joseph Hitchcock. William died before May 1716 and the leasehold was occupied in 1723 by his oldest son John.
His descendants have been known variously as Aertse, Arser, Auser and Orser. Most of them were descended from his son Evert."
This appears to say that the Orsers descent from an Evert
who was son of William and Steyntje Nagel.
I have them descended from Evert who married Wyntje De Vouw/De Voe, with which you and others on this list seem to agree, but I don't have this Evert as the son of William and Steyntje Nagel. I have this Evert who married Wyntje as the son of Evert and Mayken Hercksx Cronkheyt, bpt. 9 November 1690 NY DRC, and this Evert son of Aert Williamsen and Wyntje Elbertse.
So I probably need straightening out.If you could briefly outline how it goes from Aert Williamsen and Wyntje Elbertse, I'd appreciate it very much.
Regards and my thanks,
