West of the Salt


Domine Cozine's Widow Misidentified
-Affects Brouwer and Demarest Family Lines-

We have been writing our book, West of the Salt, for several years. However, we have
continued researching associated families. Recently we came across a problem in current
genealogies dealing with Domine Cornelius Cozine which we felt needs addressing. An error
as to the correct identity of his second wife also affects other families, such as the Demarests
and the Brouwer/Brewers.

Reference is made to the will of Domine Cornelius Cozine, Sr. (pages 49-51, West of
the Salt), dated 5 Aug 1786, also available online with Ken Heindl's post to the Dutch-
Colonies mail list of Aug 2000.
We will focus on two details of this will:

The identification of his second wife is simply “Mary,” together with the
specifications of her inheritance.

His direction to executors to provide an “outset” (usually monies and/or goods
upon marriage) to “Elizabeth Venordir.” This individual is otherwise unidentified
and uncorrelated with Domine Cozine.
So there are these two uncertainties in Cozine's will that are also incorrectly presented in
existing genealogies.

With regard to Cozine's second wife, “Mary,” the Rev. Demarest wrote in 1884:

“His [Dom. Cozine] wife, Maria Brewer was the daughter of one of the colonists
She upon his death went to Haverstraw, N.Y. where she married David S.
Demarest of Hackensack, N.J.”

Rev. Demarest was notable for researching and writing a marvelous historical paper
detailing the Dutch colony that established what has come to be known as Conewago in York
(now Adams) County, PA. The colony was first populated in 1767 and mostly migrated
further west by the mid-1790s. Demarest wrote his paper in 1884 when “Conewago” and the
Dutch colonists were but a dim memory. Many subsequent genealogies have copied
Demarest and specified Mary to be a Brouwer or Brewer.

We recently became aware of documents, legal court evidence that disputes and
obsoletes Demarest's identification of Mary (Maria) Brewer as Cozine's second wife and
identifies the family of the recipient of the “outset” Elizabeth Venordir ! It is as follows:

Dauphin Co., PA Deed Book H, Vol. 2, page 430
John Yurry and his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Mary, wife of Rev. Co. Cozine,
dec'd” of the town of Haverstraw in the County of Orange, N.Y. appoints Joseph
Brinkerhoff of York Co., PA their attorney to receive whatever due them from
[Cozine's] estate.


West of the Salt

Dauphin Co., PA Deed Book H, Vol. 2, page 429
Mary Cozine, widow of Cornelious Cozine married David Demerest, Bergen Co,
Oct 4, 1790, came before the court and said she appointed Jacob Vanorden--no
more David Van Orden of Orange Co NY her attorney in the estate of the said
Cornelious Cozine dec 'd, David Beatty. EX. On August 1, 1787, she while a
widow, empowered David Van Orden her Ex.

The significance of these Dauphin Co., PA records cannot be overstated. They reveal
that Mary, second wife of Cornelius Cozine, Sr. was widow Mary Van Orden, prior to her
marriage to Cozine. She was not Mary Brewer, since her daughter Elizabeth was a Van Orden.
They also reveal that “Elizabeth Venordir” (recipient of an outset in Cozine's will) was in fact,
the daughter of Mary Van Orden, Cozine's second wife. Elizabeth was a teenager (born
1769) living in the home of her stepfather Cornelius Cozine and her mother, Mary. So...

Elizabeth was genealogically a Van Orden and

Elizabeth was a daughter of Mary and a prior Van Orden husband...

Hence, Mary was a Van Orden widow (not Brewer nor even a Westerfield widow)
But, what was the maiden name of the widow Mary Van Orden? Armed with the above data,
it didn't take long to locate the following marriage record that identifies her as Mary Koning
(not Mary Brewer), along with baptismal records of their children, including Elizabeth in 1769
(recipient of an outset in Dom. Cozine's will).

Marriage Record:

Records of the Reformed Dutch Churches of Hackensack & Schraalenburgh, NJ,
(Holland Society of New York 1891), Part 2, pg. 50,
[1760] 31 May Stephen Van Orden, y.m.; Mary Koning, y.d.

Baptismal Record:
Schraalenburg DRC, Bergen Co., NJ - 29 Jan 1769;
Elizabeth; Stephen Van Orden and Mary Koning;
wit: Johannes Westervelt. Magdalene Christi

The Van Orden attorneys, David and Jacob, appointed by Mary (Koning) Van Orden Cozine
Demarest to represent her inheritance from Domine Cozine's estate, were brothers of her
first husband, Stephen Van Orden, deceased.

To summarize, Mary (Koning) Van Orden was the second wife of Domine Cornelius
Cozine; and her 5th child by her first husband Stephen Van Orden was Elizabeth Van Orden
(baptized 08 Jan 1769, died 13 Sep 1856). Unfortunately, Rev. J.K. Demarest, in writing his
paper about Conewago, apparently failed to consider the fact that Domine Cozine had a son,
Cornelius Cozine Jr., and that son had married a Mary Brewer (baptized 22 Apr 1755, died
after 1796). Also Cornelius Jr and his wife, Mary Brewer, a much younger couple, had four
children born, all baptized in Conewago. However, Rev. Demarest was correct in stating that
the Domine's widow, Mary, married David Demarest and moved to New Jersey (but she was
not Mary Brewer). We do not wish to convey any real criticism of Rev. Demarest, because he
contributed so much fine historical work in the area of the early Dutch settlers of Conewago.


West of the Salt

Our research has failed to identify the parents of Mary Koning. However, Frank Van
Orden's genealogy research may already have answered this question. He identifies her
parents and siblings, as well as the children she had by her husband, Stephen Van Orden.

Frank Van Orden indicates that Mary was the daughter of Arie Koning and his wife,
Elizabeth [Conraed] Hartje, married in 1719 in Rockland Co., NY. He lists 8 known children
born between 1720-1738: Jacob, Conrad, Pieter, Margrithje, Leuntje, Elizabeth, Marya (b.
1736, Tappan) and Antje. Marya, born in 1736 looks like a very good "fit". Based on her
1760 first marriage to Stephen Van Orden as a "young woman", we estimated that her birth
was no later than 1742. Frank's web site does not include sources, so we will leave
documentation to prove or disprove this lineage to others. His work can be seen here:

The Marriage of Stephen Van Orden and Mary Koning

Stephen Van Orden (1735-1771) and Mary Koning were married 31 May 1760 at
Schraalenburgh Dutch Reformed Church in Bergen Co., NJ. He died before 18 Aug 1771
when their youngest child, Marytje was baptized at Schraalenburg DRC with the notation as
to parents: "Marytje Van Orden, widow of Stephen Van Orden.” Stephen and Mary (Koning)
Van Orden had the following children: Rachel, Peter S., Jan S., Elizabeth,* and Marytje.

* This Elizabeth (5th child, above) was the Elizabeth living in the Cozine household with the
Domine and her mother, Mary, at the time of the Domine's death. These children and their father
are discussed further below in Ancillary Data.
The Marriage of David Sam Demarest and Mary Koning

Four years after the death of Domine Cornelius Cozine, Sr., his widow, Mary (Koning)


Van Orden Cozine married her husband, David Sam Demarest on 04 Oct 1790.
Schraalenburgh DRC records show that David and Mary witnessed the baptism of their
mutual grand-daughter, Margrietje Demarest on 14 Nov. 1790, witnesses: David Sam
Demarest and Maria Koning, his wife. They again witnessed the baptism of a mutual
grandson, David on 25 Jan 1796. The parents of both children were David D.6 Demarest
(son of David Sam5 Demarest) and Marytje Van Orden (daughter of Maria Koning)!

In addition, on 08 Mar 1795, Mary Koning and her 3rd husband David Demarest
witnessed the baptism of Maria Van Orden at Tappan DRC, parents: Peter S. Van Orden and
Margrietje Haring, witnesses were David Sam Demarest, Maria Demarest [nee Koning,
paternal grandmother and namesake].

Ancillary Data


West of the Salt

The Facts about Mary5 Brewer (Daniel4, Abraham3 Brouwer, Peter ADAMSE2, Adam PIETERSE1)
and her husband, Cornelius Cozine, Jr.

Mary5 Brewer/Brouwer and her husband, Cornelius Cozine, Jr. baptized four children at
Conewago DRC between 1776 and 1783: Antie, Daniel, Sarah and Cornelius III. They are
listed in the 1783 Tax List of Straban, York Co., PA. This family migrated to Mercer Co., KY
between 1783 and 1786. There they purchased a farm, as previously indicated in West of
the Salt, Cozine Section, pp. 45-64. Unfortunately, Cornelius Jr. died between February and
May 1787, leaving his wife Mary (Brewer) and 4 children, all of whom were named in his will
(recorded in Mercer Co., KY Will Book 1, p. 12), as well as, Mercer Co., KY Guardian bonds for
several years. These 4 were the grandchildren of Dom. Cornelius Cozine Sr., who had died
one year earlier in August of 1786.

About nine months later, on 10 Jan 1788, Mary Brewer Cozine married (2nd, not 3rd)
Samuel Demaree Jr. (son of Samuel Demaree and Leah Demarest) in Mercer Co., KY; and
they relocated to Shelby Co., KY. before 1790 when tragedy struck. Young Daniel was killed
and his sister, Sarah, was kidnapped by Indians. Mary Brewer did not travel back to New
Jersey, marry David Sam Demarest there, bury him, then scurry back to Kentucky in time to
marry Sam Demaree, Jr in January 1788! In addition, Mary had four young children by her
late husband, Cornelius Cozine, Jr. that have to be accounted for. Furthermore, as noted
above, David Sam Demarest, of New Jersey, was still alive in 1796, welcoming his
grandchildren into the world. Unfortunately, more than a few current genealogies continue
this impossible fiction as fact. Hopefully this paper will help correct these misconceptions.

Stephen5 Van Orden (John4, Andriese3, Jan2, Pieter1)

Mary Koning's first husband, Stephen5 Van Orden, was born 02 May 1735 in
Hackensack, Bergen Co., NJ. His parents were John4 [Andriese] Van Orden and Rachel [Wouter]
Van Schyven. He was baptized 22 June 1735 at Schraalenburg DRC, Bergen Co., NJ,
witnesses were Stephen Terhune & his wife, Lydia [Demarest]. His siblings were: Andries,
Wouter, David, Leah, Rachel, and Jacobus.

As noted previously, Stephen married Marytje Koning 31 May 1760; both listed as
young and single. He and Mary had 5 children, all of whom were baptized at Schraalenburg

i. Rachel Van Orden, b. 13 May 1761 d. 05 Jan 1830, Mercer Co., KY.
ii. Peter S. Van Orden, b. 14 Aug 1763 d. 09 Nov 1846, Rockland Co., NY.
iii. Jan S. Van Orden, b. 08 Jul 1766 d. 21 Apr 1837, Rockland Co., NY.
