Hendrich van Schoonhoven  b abt. 1600 in Wittsburg, Holland M.Aeltgen Adiens

From a message by Roger Schoonover:

I have heard many differing ideas about the Schoonover origin. But there are some more clear facts: the first of the Schoonover line came here before 1650 and were called Van Schoonhoven. They came from Holland, although it would appear that these Euro Schoonhovens had contacts all over the place. In Holland, the 'Van' designated 'from' which would mean that these people were 'from' Schoonhoven, the small city on the river Lek (really a Roman canal). But it does make some sense since ports on the north sea are few and far between. I've heard that in the old language, many hundreds of years ago, the name 'Schoon' was pronounced differently and meant either clean or safe, maybe as a clean escape. Hoven then sounded more like "hav'n", meaning haven, or save place. The location on the ancient Roman canal made it a 'safe haven'.

From a book by Ollie Collett Lunsford:
Mrs. Ollie Lunsford of Elkins, West Virgina, recieved by request, the following data from Her Majesty, Queen Wilhelmina of Holland, on August 4,1942.
The Municipality of Schoonhoven has an area of 208 acres. Its population was, in 1930,4,477 and in 1936, 4,502. It is situated on the bank of Lek, and was in earlier times an important fortress. The origin of the name is explained in two ways; Cornelius Aurelius called it "Bello-Portus" (beautiful harbor) and claimed that its real name was "Schoonhaven" (schoon is beautiful and haven is harbor.) Others derive the name from "Schoon hoven"' meaning beautiful farms, after the many rich farms and estates which suround the town. The emblem of Schoonhoven is four climbing lions on a silver field, of which the first and last are black and the two middle ones are red.

 Children of Hendrich and Aeltgen Adiens may have been, but it is not known for certain:

1. Claes/Klaas Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven was born 1629 in Wilsburgh/Utrecht, Holland, and died before March 16, 1661 in Ft. Orange/Albany, New York.

2. Geurt Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven  born 1634 died Jan 12, 1702.

1. Claes/Klaas Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven (Hendrich Van Schoonhoven) was born 1629 in Wilsburgh/Utrecht, Holland, and died before March 16, 1661 in Ft. Orange/Albany, New York.   From research of Patty B. Myers: "Klass1 Van Schoonover, came to America 1640-48. There is a record of him being in Fort Orange (Albany) prior to 1654. He d. 15 Mar 1661; bur. in the church yard of the Dutch Reformed Church in Kingston, N.Y.; m 1654 Cornelia ("Neeltie") Fredrickse. Klaas van Schoonover was a carpenter and also dealt in real estate. In 1657 he held a patent for a lot in Beverwyck (original name of Fort Orange). He had a number of real estate transactions recorded in Ulster County, New York prior to his death. A deed of 1657 records the ground on which the Askokan Reservoir now stands near Kingston as the property of Klaas Hendrick Van Schoonhoven, Dutch immigrant from Wiltaberg (Utrecht, Holland). Cornelia m/2 Willem Janse Stoll who was killed by the Indians at Kingston. She m/3 1664 Albert Gooversen and perhaps moved to New York (Amsterdam). "

Children of Claes Van Schoonhoven and Neeltie Fredrickse are:

3.     i. Margrietzie Clas Van Schoonover.

4.     ii. Hendrick Claessen Van Schoonhoven, born Abt May 05, 1652 in Fort Orange, Orange, New York; died aft. December 04, 1715 in Kingston, Ulster County, New York.

 

(It is not known with certainty whether Claus and Geurt were really brothers)

 

2. Geurt Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven (Hendrich van Schoonhoven).Geurt Hendricks Van Schoonhoven, born 1634 in Holland, came to America and settled in Beverwyck perhaps as late as the 1650s.  Beverwyck was the name given to the community of fur traders that first emerged along the Hudson River north of Fort Orange during the 1640s. Geurt supported  himself through carpentry.  He rented a dwelling while working out of a "celler with a lean-to shed" - which he purchased in 1663. Later, he owned a house and lot within the Albany stockade.  In 1675 Geurt was farming in Half Moon and in 1681 on Cohoes Island. By the 1860's he had married Maritie Cornelis.  They were members of the Albany Dutch Church. Maritie was born in Europe, came to America and all of her children were born here prior to 1683.   She lived with Geurt in Albany and in his other up-river residences. Their six children also became members of the Albany Dutch Church.  Maritie Cornelis Van Schoonhoven witnessed the baptism of a granddaughter in 1704.  Maritie may have died as late as 1710. 
In August 1700, Geurt Hendrickse made a will calling himself a yeoman of Halfmoon. As was the custom, he acknowledged the suppremacy of God and his own allegience to the king of England. He left his "well beloved wife Maritie Cornelius" his entire Halfmoon estate and also his lot in Albany. She was made executrix. The eldest son Jacob was given one pound and ten shillings as his birthright and son Hendrick was left Geurt's carpenter tools. The sons were to share farm tools. After their mother's death, the sons were to have the Halfmoon and Albany property appraised, and, after six years, divide the proceeds six ways to include their sisters, Margarita, Hendrickie, Geertruy, and Jacomyntie Van Schoonhoven.  Geurt Hendrickse Van Schoonhoven, the New Netherland patriarch died 12 Jan 1702.

4. Hendrick Claessen Van Schoonhoven (Claes Hendrickse, Hendrich Van Schoonhoven) was bp. May 5, 1652 at the Dutch Reformed Church in Fort Orange, Orange, New York, and died aft. December 4, 1715 in Kingston, Ulster County, New York. Carpenter. He and Cornelia are buried in the Dutch Reformed Church, Kingston, the same place his parents are buried. He married July 6, 1679 (1) Debora Christoffels Davids bp. Jan 25,1665 Kingston, NY, d Dec 4, 1715 Kingston, NY daughter of Christoffel "Kit" Davids, born Sept 3, 1616 in Bischopwyck, Canterbury, Kent, England , woodsman, Indian interpreter and whiskey trader and Maria Martens/Maria Martensen, b.abt 1633 in Ulster, New York d 1671 Marbletown, NY. Divorce Filing Oct 17,1687 in Kingston, Ulster County, NY Hendrick married January 1, 1688 (2) Cornelia Swartwout b. March 13,1667 d.July 7, 1714 in Kingston Church, New York, daughter of (Sheriff) Roeloff Swartwout and Eva Bradt. In 1715, Hendrick registered banns: "HENDRIK KLAASZ SCHOONHOOVEN, widower of CORNELIA SWARTWOUD, and WILLEMJEN DE LANGE, widow of THEUNIS KOOL, born in Kingstown. Banns registered, 4 Dec. 'Withdrawn the same day.'"

Debora was a little over 14 when she married Hendrick who was 27. Despite 8 years of marriage, they produced no children. When she was twenty she had an affair with Peg Leg Perrick or Dirck Adrians Van Vliet.*

*Here follows a note by Don Green on research done by Tony Schoonover:

Circumstantial evidence points to Dirck Van Vliet as the elusive Dirrick "Wootin Legg." Our reasons for this conclusion are as follows. (1) His first name was Dirrick (Dirck is another form of the given name). (2) Dirck Van Vliet had one leg. A brother-in-law, Gysbert Krom accidentally shot off Dirck's left leg at a New Year's Eve Party in 1678. [ Whether or not the shooting happened at a New Year's Eve Party is not certain but the events are documented. Two short accounts relating to the shooting are included here. ] A wooden or "peg" leg was the usual artificial limb for the time. (3) We believe that "wooden leg" is not a proper Dutch surname. As we understand it, Dutch surnames at this time were usually derived from the father's given name (the English influence changed that custom to a single surname running from parent to child, etc.) Wooden leg, therefore, was a kind of nickname, possibly a cruel pejorative nickname. (4) In her affadavit, cited above, Debora states that Dirck would not marry her, but instead, he married another. This would have occurred either before or soon after birth of the child. In 1685, the year in which Niclaas was born, Dirck Van Vliet married Anne Andriesen (baptised 1662), daughter of Andries and Hilletje Hendricks Barentsen. (5) The families of both Dirck and Debora lived in the village of Kingston, and obviously knew one another. The Van Vliet family arrived in New Netherlands on the ship, "Trouw," on 13 June, 1662, and settled at Kingston. Dirck died there in 1702. Over the years the Van Vliet, Schoonover, Krom and Davids (Davis) families intermarried. Later, Debora's grand-daughter, Rebekka, married a Krom who was the grand-son of Dirck Van Vliet. http://genforum.genealogy.com/cgi-bin/pageload.cgi?Gysbert::schoonover::810.html

Book AA, page 66 in the office of the County Clerk of Ulster County, New York, records a complaint of Hendick Claes Schoonover against Debora Christoffels David before the Justice of the Peace 17 Oct 1687. Debora admitted that Hendirck was not the father of her first child and that the father was Derrick Wootin Legg.


"A complaint of Hendrick Claes (Van Schoonhoven) against his wife,Debora, maid before Capt. Henry Beeckman, Justice of the Peace ye 17 Oct in Kingston 1687."


"-----is yt (that); ye sd [stated] Hendrick Claes comes in his own person and saith yt his wife hath declared yt shee is a ----- and therefore ye said Hendrick Claes by ye reason yt shee is a -----."


"Jurian tunis, brother-in-law of Debora Davis, being sworn testyfieth he was by and heard ye wife of Hendrick Claes say it; she wold bee from his husband and then hir husband said to her --- yt if shee wold carray hir selfa as an onest wooman he would take hir and live with hir as a man and wife ought to doe and furdr saith nott."


"William Demyr being sworne testefyeth yt he heard Debora say yt; shee wold nott live with her husband noo longer ye reason was asked hir and she declared yt shee was nott worthey to live with him and yet ye foalt was not in him butt in hir and yet Dirrick Wooden Legg mislead her."

"Ye wife of Matthis Blanshan [nee Margriete Schoonover & sister of Hendrick] reported these following words of which Debora had declared to hir, Dirrick Wooden Legg is the father of hir child and when she was with child Dirrick Wooden Legg was going to be married she went to him and said yt as he had taken away hir repation hee should give it to hir again whereupon he gave hir bad words -------- Hendrick Claes did severall times promis to forgive hir all her fformer ffalts in caes shee wold promise yet shee wold live with him hereafter as an onest woman shold doe with hir husband where upon she said:yet shee noever did love him and connot love him and ffurder sath nott."

 

 

Hendrick made a will soon after he married Cornelia and before any of his legitimate children were born. He gave Debora's  son "an English Schillling." From research of Patty B. Myers:

Will dated November 12th, 1688

      I Acknollig [acknowledge] before ye After mentioned witnesses that Cornelia Swartwout my Espoued [espoused] and truly belouwed [beloved] Brid [bride] is and schal bee [shall be] And Remain the Only herris [heir] of my whole Estaet And if it Schold [should] please God to giueue [give] Childeren to her and that she after my Death Shold Com to remarry than Schall ye hallif [half] of ye Estaet Remaen inviolable to ye Children that hauf [have] been procreated and Agriment Alder bout ouer [agrement ?other about our] Children Schall Equilly inherit as well sons as Doghters only ye Eldest son Schall haufe [have] an Engelish Schilling And furdher to hinder And Scham All manner of troubbel that might Arrise by ye same So Schall be Give unto the Recerdit [recorded] Basterd Child named Claes whoes modder is called Debora an English Schilling.

Note: More on the colorful Christoffel Davids, often called "Kit Davids:" Christopher (Kit) Davids and Cornelia de Vos

Also from "Davis Family Genealogy Notes" http://www.dotwebb.com/aegenealogy/DavisGenealogy.html :

Christopher "Kit" was born 3 Sep 1616 in Bishopwyck, England. He died 1680[sic] in Marbletown, Ulster Co, NY. He worked as a traper, an Indian interpreter, and a farmer. He was known for his "lawlessness" and was jailed many times for such crimes as contempt, spreading rumors among the Indians, beating up neighbors and servants, and selling brandy to the Indians. On one occasion he was in court for being hit in the head with a pair of tongs, and on another occasion he was there for striking another man with a tankard. He came to Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1636, and lived on the island of Manhattan for a year until he got "into trouble with one of his neighbors." He then moved to Ft Orange (Albany), where he stayed from 1638-1652. A Dutch Trading Post had been established in Ulster Co, but there wasn't a white settlement in that region until Kit and three other Brits came there in 1652. He built several log cabins around Kingston and Esopus, and held large tracts of land. His 1st wife Cornelia DeVos died in 1657, and he remarried to Maria [Martens or] Martensen, ... in 1659. Children of Kit & Cornelia:  Arriantje (b 1645),  David (b ?),  Joris (b 1653), Marritje (b 1655), Jan (b ?) Children of Kit & Maria: Isaac (b 1661), Abraham (b 1662), Debora (b 1665)

Young Nick the Bastard was baptized with the Van Schoonhoven family.

During the 1720s, he was operating a sawmill at Tomhannock. Like most of his neighbors, Jacobus served in the Albany County Militia. He was a lieutenant in a ranger company in 1703 and later, in 1715, commanded a company of the militia drawn from Niskayuna and Halfmoon, as appears by his signed muster-roll. Later he was captain of the militia company drawn from Niskayuna and Halfmoon. A captain needed to be a man of means as he was responsible for raising and outfitting his company. Then his expenses could be reimbursed.

[The Old Mine Road was probably the first wheeled-vehicle road in this country, built three hundred years and perhaps more ago by the pioneer Dutch settlers for access to the mines of the Minisink country. It extended from Esopus (now Kingston), New York, and Sussex and Warren Counties in New Jersey, to the Delaware Water Gap. (C. G. Hine, The Old Mine Road, Rutgers University Press, New Brunswick, N.J., 1909.)]  They made their homes in the Minisink area of the upper Delaware River Valley, Sussex Co., NJ. In 1747 they were attached to the Moravian Church of the Upper Delaware Valley, Walpack. (Tedford E. Schoonover, Our Family History, Schoonover, Kar, Robinson, Hayes, p. 5.)"

Albany alderman. 1st Reg Land Bounty Rights."Although he had practiced the carpenter's trade and was an aspiring landholder, by the 1750s, Dirck had established himself as skipper of the sloop "Rising Sun" carrying cargoes between Albany and New York City. Over the next decades he was a well-known Hudson River slooper - hauling country produce downriver and returning with valuable cargoes on behalf of Albany merchants ,,,. Like his father, Dirck B. Van Schoonhoven was prominent in the Albany County militia. In 1755, he was commissioned an ensign in the Rensselaerswyck company. He served the city government as well - being appointed firemaster for the Third Ward in 1750 - first documenting a long-term connection to the Albany government that culminated in his election as assistant alderman in 1766. In 1766, he joined a number of Albany people in opposition to the Stamp Act by signing a "constitution" of the Albany Sons of Liberty. Ten years later, he was running errands for the Albany Committee of Safety and was sent with a crew to serve as a carpenter at Ticonderoga. While not distinguished in any particular way, Dirck Bradt Van Schoonhoven was a well-known Albany personage during the 1770s and could be counted on to lend his support on behalf of friends and neighbors. After the war, he received a land bounty right for service to the American cause. Abandoning the river trade, he seems to have retired to his Watervliet home. His only recorded public act of the post-war period was to sign an Antifederal petition in 1788. He died in August 1795 at the age of seventy five and was buried from the Albany Dutch Church where he was a lifelong member."

Much of this information is suspect:
"He is buried in the charch yard, under a large tree, at Mount Zion church on Lower Cheat, located about 5 miles East of Elkin, WV, Randolph Co" Mrs Ollie Lunsford. The Lunsford account seems to have been adopted by descendants of this line. But, there is some confusion that still remains. For example, in A history of Randolph County, West Virginia by A.S. Bosworth, 1916 there is this on page 381: The Schoonover Family. This pioneer family is of German ancestry, Benjamin Schoonover was born in Connecticut in 1755 and settled at the mouth of Horse Shoe Run in Randolph, now Tucker County. A few years later he moved to Shavers Fork. His children were Joseph, David, Henry, Daniel, and Amy.

Clarence Lee posted this new info on http://genforum.genealogy.com/schoonover/ :
"Benjamin Schoonover signed for Aaron Hand on a land survey 10-25-1785 Hampshire CO VA. Ephram son of Aaron Hand sold this land 1805 as a resident of Bourbon Co KY. Ann wife of Aaron had remarried Jeremiah Prather. Aaron was stated to be deceased.
It seems Aaron was from NJ/NY and would be a contempary of Benjamin. Ephram was under 45 on the 1810 census but over 45 on the 1820 census. This now provides a conncetion between Benjamin and the Hand family. Aaron may be a brother to a James Hand, also in Hardy/Hampshire Cos. Both removed to Montgomery Co Ky before 1800 or earlier with perhaps a Jeremiah Hand."

101. Christopher (Stoffel) Krom/Crum Schoonover (Rebekka Van Schoonhoven, Niclaes, Hendrick Claessen, Claes Hendrickse, Hendrich1 Van Schoonhoven) was born Abt May 1762 in Machackeneck, Orange County, NY, and died August 30, 1829 in Tippecanoe County, Indiana. He married Jane Chandler or Janache Decker, daughter of Johannes Dekker/Decker.

New research by Don Green:

        Back in the 1970s, it was Joseph Bachman who put me onto the trail of Christopher Krom Schoonover, my 3d gr-grandfather. At the time, Joe suggested that the maiden name of Jane might be "Chandler" because she had given that as the middle name to one of her sons. but I have gone back to the Minisink region's baptismal records and using the processs of elimination, I now believe that our "Jane" is a DEKKER/DECKER rather than a CHANDLER. More specifically, I believe that she is Janache, daughter of Johannes Dekker/Decker, Jr. To confuse matters more, Johannes had two "Janes," one by his first wife and one by his second wife. Our Janache's mother is Maragietje Gomar; the second Jane is Jenneke, daughter of Sarah Hornbeck. Janache was born in 1764; Jenneke was born in 1772.

Here is my reasoning and evidence. We know that our Jane was born in 1764 from evidence in Christopher's Pension Record. From the ages of the two older sons, we know that the marriage would have taken place in abt 1783-84, soon after Christopher was discharged from the Continental Army at Newburgh,NY. He returned home right after his release and spent some time with his family. The odds are that he married someone he already knew in the small communities of Machackemeck,NY or Walpack,NJ, only a few miles apart (that is what they did in those days given their limited "social geography"). By the process of elimination in the baptismal records (Minisink Valley Reformed Dutch Church Records, 1716-1830 by Vosburgh, editor), I have found only one Jane, among the several Dutch variations, born in the period, 1763-66, whose age matches that of our Jane, and that is JANACHE DEKKER/DECKER. And she is the only Jane in that period for whom I can find no record of marriage and/or descendants.

Janache disappears from the records after her birth. Some genealogists have concluded that she died as a child, but I find no evidence of that. She and Christopher would have been married in abt 1783 or 1784 after he was discharged from the army in 1783. I have been unable to find a record of Christopher's and Jane's marriage, but there is a gap in the Machackemeck marriage records from 1777 to 1785 because of the burning of the church by the British and the lack of a clergyman during that period. Finally, it should be noted that Jane gave the name "Decker" to her third son, Isaac Decker Schoonover. The middle initial "D" is found with second son, Solomon D. Schoonover, and my best bet is that the "D" also stands for "Decker." As for Chandler Schoonover, there are no Jane Chandlers in the baptismal records of either the Minisink or Kingston areas. I believe that Chandler was named after a neighbor, Josiah Chandler, who was located 10 households from Christopher's farm in the Census of 1810 in Warren County, PA. The name may have been given in gratitude for some act of kindness.

Cortwright July 22, 1847.From the research of Patty Myers: "Ed was a great speculator and was always ready to trade anything that he owned, if he could get the best of the bargain. He started in business as a storekeeper on Hector Hill (North Barton), near where the Methodist Episcopal church now stands. He ran the business successfully until the Southern Rebellion broke out, when he sold out and bought a farm one half mile west of the village of Smithboro (now owned by Fred Manning) and turned his attention to farming. He was not successful with grain raisint it was too hard work for him. He put up a store and ran that business during the Rebellion very profitably. He then sold the farm and moved to Tioga Center and commenced storekeeping in his father's store. ...Ed held the office of Justice of the Peace for many years to the satisfaction of the whole community. He also studied to be a physician and did some home practice which gave him the name "Doctor Ed." He was getting along nicely when he had a stroke which ended in his death. When Ed passed away, Tioga Center lost one of its most enterprising men and a good citizen.  Early records of the Town of Tioga reveal that Ed was also Superintendant of Town of Tioga Common Schools from 1842 to 1857. During this period he also laid out and surveyed several roads for the town."

152.

He married (1) Susannah (Van Etten) Lane. (2) Anna Margaret Garriss b June 10, 1795 PA d December 14, 1874. Research notes by Bob Schoonover (RBobJim@aol.com) Nicholas appears to have had a second wife -- Anna Margaret Gariss.  No direct proof of this marriage has been found but the following facts support this theory: 1.  The will of Leonard Gariss notes that his daughter Anna Margaret Gariss
was born 10 Jun 1795 and was married to Nicholas Schoonover. (source: Leonard Gariss will written 29 Jul 1830.) 2.  Nicholas Schoonovers brother Ezekiel Schoonover married Barbara Gariss, the sister of Anna Margaret Gariss.  Ezekiel Schoonover and her brother Philip Gariss were named as executors of Leonard Gariss will. 4.  The 1850 Illinois census shows Nicholas (born in 1775) living with his unmarried son Philip (born in 1819) and Margaret age 55 (and therefore born in 1795.)  Three years later, in 1853, Philip married Hannah SPINNER. (source: 1850 census for Cass Co. and Mason Co., Illinois.) 5.  The 1860 Illinois census shows Nicholas and Margaret living with his married son Lewis (born in 1821) and his wife Catherine. (source: 1860 census, Cass Co., IL)6.  Nicholas first wife Susannah does not appear in any Illinois census.7.  Nicholas son George Garess Schoonover was born in 1817. The middle name Garess could be a spelling variation of his mother Anna Margarets maiden name Gariss/Garris.

Children of Nicholas Schoonhoven and Susannah Lane are:

342 i. Jacob B. Schoonover, born December 12, 1799 in Walpack, Sussex County, NJ.
