From "The Kouwenhoven, Stoothoff and Verbryck Descendants of Aeltie Cornelise Cool," the private research of Richard A. McCool, June A. McCowan & Dorothea E. McCowan:17

3-005. Garret(3) Elbertse Stoothoff (Aeltie2 Cornelise Cool), born 26 January 1648, Flatlands, Kings County, Long Island [IGI], baptized 4 May 1653,24 died 30 March 1730,24,25 married on 10 August 1684 Johanna Nevius, baptized 11 March 1668, New York City, died 1734, aged 66, daughter of Johannes Nevius and Adriaentje Bleyck.24 By the terms of his father's will, of which the subject was Administrator, Garret(3) received Bergen's' Island, now known as Bergen Beach, in Brooklyn, Kings County, Long Island. Among transactions following on the Administration of his father's estate, we note the sale of land to Martin Schenck, of Flatlands, of "all that farm in New Lotts at North side of the towne as same are layd out and numbered 1 & 2 great in all 20 morgen," dated 27 November 1693 and "signed in the presence of John van Dykehuys," his brother-in-law.26 On the same day Roeloff Martinse Schenck conveyed a farm in the Paerdegatt to John Stevense and John Stevense and Femmitie Aukes his wife, convey to Roeloff Martinse Schenck, farm and lots at New Lotts, "at the North side of the towne, soe as the same layd out by the towne, No. 4-5-6 & 7. . .." In the following month, that land was transferred by Roeloff Martinse Schenck, "as a free gift," to Gerratt Roeloffson Schenck, signed "in the presence of John van Dyckhuys and Peter Cortilleou.27 These appear to be transactions calculated to settle claims among the progeny of Aeltie(2) Cornelise Cool.

Garret(3)'s will was dated 5 November 1722 and named his "wife Johanna, daughter Altie, son Gerrit, daughter Arintie, daughter Sarah, daughter Helena, son Elbert, sons Petrus, Cornelius and Wilhelmus and son Johannis.25

Honeyman states that Garret(3) Stoothoff was married first to Willemtje Pieters Monfoort, supposed daughter of Pieter Monfoort and Sarah de Plancken, but this is corrected in the NYG&B Record:122 as a faulty conclusion formulated upon a misreading of church records.

In Keskachauge (p. 389), Frederick van Wyck discusses an indemnity bond regarding the suit filed by certain descendants regarding Bergen's Island, dated 20 April 1764.31 Several of the descendants listed here are party to this bond.

Garrit(3) Elbertse Stoothoff and Johanna Nevius had issue (order per Honeyman):

+4-028. Elbert(4) Stoothoff, probably born in 1685, died 19 September 1756, married, banns 28 March 1714, Johanna Lupardus.

4-029. Arintie(4), or Adrianna, Stoothoff, stated by Honeyman to have been baptized 6 August 1686 and to have died before 1735. Perhaps the Adrianna baptized in 1686 is the first of this name in this family group, who, having died in infancy, is succeeded by a sister of the same name, born in 1687. Record exists of an Adrianna Stoothoff, born 11 January 1687, died 18 August 1761, who married 20 June 1707 Harmanus Hoagland, born 18 February 1681, son of Christoffel Hoagland and Catherine Cregier.28,29 Harmanus Hoagland was married first to Alida Jansz van Dyck and married second in 1707 Adrianna Stoothoff.32 Honeyman offers no explanation for his statement that Adrianna Stoothoff died before 1735, though this is likely a reference to the indemnity bond regarding the suit for Bergen's Island, for she is not included. The issue of Adrianna(4) Stoothoff and Harmanus Hoagland are given as: Christopher(5) Hoagland and Alida(5) Hoagland, no stats, married Jacobus van Arsdale. Christopher(5) Hoagland, born 2 April 1708, died at Flatlands, Brooklyn 18 January 1766, married Neeltje Voorhees, daughter of Albert Coerten van Voorhees and Sarah Willemse Cornell.30 Other Hoaglands, probably additional children to those mentioned by Honeyman, are also parties to the Bergen's Island suit, to wit: Martinus Hooghland, Gerrit Hooghland, Heeleena Hooghland, Elbert Hooghland and Harmanus Hooghland (perhaps the husband). Christoffel, or Christopher(5) is mentioned, but not Alida(5).

4-030. Altie(4) Stoothoff, probably born 1688, nfi.

+4-031. Johannis(4) Stoothoff, born 1690, died 1 June 1730, married Neeltje(5) Schenck.

4-032. Sara(4) Stoothoff, born 1692, ndd, married 29 March 1717 Lawrence Williamson.

4-033. Helena(4) Stoothoff, born 1694, died 1726, married 26 April 1715 Roeloff Lucasse van Voorhees, son of Lucas Stevense van Voorhees and Jannetje Minnes Johannes. Their children: Luke(5) van Voorhees; Jannetje(5) van Voorhees; Gerret(5) van Voorhees, baptized 1 April 1722; Roelof(5) van Voorhees, baptized 8 March 1724; and Johanna(5) van Voorhees, baptized 4 December 1726.

Honeyman states that Roelof Lucasse married second Margareta Cortelyou, by whom several additional children were born. However, Albert L. Stokes states that he married secondly, about 1730, Neeltje, "widow of Johannis Stoothoff, his brother-in-law" and further identifies her as the daughter of Martin Schenck. This is clearly the brother of Helena(4) Stoothoff, Johannis(4), who had died at about this time.

Stokes also states that Roeloff Lucasse married a third time "by bond dated 5 December 1745" Margareta Cornell, who "has not been identified." Stokes notes that Roeloff had six children by Helena(4) Stoothoff and three by Neeltje Schenck.33

The indemnity bond regarding Bergen's Island lists the names: Johanna Voorhees; Roelf Voorhees and John Voorhees.

4-034. Johanna(4) Stoothoff, born 1696, died 1735. This child is enumerated by Honeyman but does not appear in the Bergen abstract of her purported father's will of 1722, therefore, if a child of the subject couple, then surely by that date.

+4-035. Cornelius(4) Stoothoff, baptized 1698, died March 1781, suppose married Maria Cortelyou.

+4-036. Petrus(4), or Peter Stoothoff, born February 1700, died 20 April 1727, married as her first husband Margaret(5) Albertse Voorhees.

+4-037. Wilhelmus(4) Stoothoff, born 30 May 1705, died 14 February 1783, married Aeltie(5) Albertse Voorhees.

4-038. Garret(4) Stoothoff, born 25 September 1714, ndd, married Catherine Roelofsen. Lived Raritan, New Jersey. He is probably the Garret who was a party to the Bergen's Island indemnity bond mentioned above, therefore alive in 1764. Nothing further at present.

On 10 Aug 168417 Gerret Elbertse married Johanna NEVIUS.2,24

They had the following children:
9 i. Adriana (1686-1761)
ii. Cornelius Gerretse2 (1698-1781)
iii. Wilhelmus Gerretse2 (1705-1783)
iv. Altie2
v. Sara2
vi. Helena2
vii. Gerret Gerretse2
viii. Elbert Gerretse2 (-1756)
ix. Johannis Gerritse2 (-~1730)
x. Petrus Gerretse2 (-1728)

for Elbert STOOTHOFF:

From "The Kouwenhoven, Stoothoff and Verbryck Descendants of Aeltie Cornelise Cool," the private research of Richard A. McCool, June A. McCowan & Dorothea E. McCowan:17

4-028. Elbert(4) Stoothoff (Garret3 Elbertse Stoothoff), probably born in 1685 at Flatlands, died 19 September 1756, Six Mile Run, New Jersey, married (banns 28 March 1714) Johanna Lupardus, baptized 20 January 1695, Dordrecht, Nederland, died 19 September 1756, daughter of Dominie Wilhelmus Lupardus and Cornelia van Wesel.34 Elbert(4) is described by Rosalie Fellows Bailey as being of Somerset, New Jersey and Flatlands, Long Island.35 Two sons are listed by William J. Hoffman, FGBS, in his article on the Lupardus-Van Noortwyck-van Wesel families appearing in the New York Genealogical & Biographical Society's Record Vol. LXVIII, reprinted, as above, in Genealogies of Long Island Families, Vol. I:567-576, but no other children. The Hoffman article was published in 1937. Wilson V. Ledley's typescript on this family group, dated 1960, lists these sons, but adds other children as well.36 The compilers include Ledley's list, though inadequately sourced and note that, with the exception of the name Abraham among the children, the others follow the usual Dutch naming conventions.

The will of Elbert(4) Stoothoff, dated 7 September 1756 and proved 18 November 1756, mentions his children Johanna, wife of Abraham Hoogland; Cornelia, wife of John Hoogland; grandson Elbert Stoothoff, and granddaughter Anatje Stoothoff.

Elbert(4) Stoothoff and Johanna Lupardus had issue:

+5-031. Gerrit(5) Stoothoff, born 13 August 1715, died 1 August 1746, married Lammetje Strycker. Named for his grandfather Stoothoff.

+5-032. Wilhelmus(5) Stoothoff, born 1716, died 14 February 1783, married in Somerset County, New Jersey, 4 May 1741 Sarah(5) Stoothoff. Named for his grandfather Lupardus.

5-033. Johanna(5) Stoothoff, nbd, ndd, married 6 May 1741 Abraham Hoagland. Named her grandmother Johanna Nevius.

+5-034. John(5) Stoothoff, born 25 April 1726, died 25 January 1798, married Sara _______. Named for his uncle Johannis(4) Stoothoff.

5-035. Cornelia(5) Stoothoff, nbd, ndd, married John Hoagland. Named for her grandmother Cornelia (van Wessel) Lupardus.

5-036. Adrianna(5) Stoothoff, nbd, ndd, married 1753 Peter Dumont, baptized 3 November 1734, son of John Dumont and Annatje Hoogland. They had ten children. Adrianna(5) is named for her aunt Arintie(4), or Adrianna Stoothoff, perhaps Hoagland.

5-037. Abraham(5) Stoothoff, nfi. His name cannot be sourced from among his immediate ancestors, perhaps signaling that he does not belong to this family group.

+5-038. Elbert(5) Stoothoff, born circa 1719, will proved 21 March 1758 Ida, perhaps Beekman. Teunis G. Bergen, "Register of the Early Settlers of Kings County, Long Island New York," New York: S. W. Green's Son, Printer, 1881. Baptized in the New Amsterdam Dutch Reformed Church on May 4, 1653.

He was a major, commissioned by Governor Slaughter.

Garret's will dated November 5, 1722 named his "wife Johanna, daughter Altie, son Gerrit, daughter Arintie, daughter Sarah, daughter Helena, son Elbert, sons Petrus, Cornelius and Wilhelmus and son Johannis.

Religion: Reformed Dutch [1677]
