12. ROELOF JANSE3 TERHUNE (JAN ALBERTS2, ALBERT ALBERTS1 TERHEUNEN)79 was born before October 1686 in Flatlands, Kings County, New York and died in 1761 in Flatlands, Kings County, New York. He married MARIKE GERRETJE VAN VOORHEES May 06, 1706 in Flatlands Dutch Reformed Church, Kings County, New York,80, 81 daughter of GERRIT COURT VAN VOORHEES and WILLEMTJE LUYSTER. She died after February 20, 1753.70

  • His wife has been confused with another woman sharing the same given name and patronymic. He did not marry Marika Gerretje WYCKOFF! She was the daughter of Garret Pieterse and Catherine (NEVIUS) WYCKOFF.

Virtually ALL published family histories and genealogies claim that Roelof married Marretje Gerretse WYCKOFF, daughter of Garret Pieterse Wyckoff and Catherine Johannes Nevius, when in fact, he married Marretje Gerretse VAN VOORHEES, daughter of Gerret Court Van Voorhees and Willemptje Pieterse Luyster and sister of Aeltje Van Voorhees, wife of Roelofs brother, Albert Jans Terhune.

Roelofs and Marike's known children are:42

i. Albert
ii. Gerret
iii. Antje
iv. Willemptje
v. Christina
vi. Marya
vii. Aeltje
viii. Margrietje

In the absence of baptismal records, their birth order is based on marriage records. Note the absence of a daughter named Catherine.

Roelof and his Van Voorhees wife repeat three of the five names of children born to his brother Albert and his Van Voorhees wife (see page 3), Gerret, Ann and Willemptje. Only Jan or John is missing to complete the four probable grandparents. Chances are that he died young, therefore he doesn't show up in Roelofs will and other records.

  • The following baptism at the Flatlands Church in 1752 identifies Roelofs wife as "Matje Voorhees" and NOT a WYCKOFF.
    • Source: http://olivetreegenealogy.com/nn/church/flatlands1.shtml cites Onderdonks manuscript in the Long Historial Society, page 157 Baptismal Records of the Church of Flatlands Child, Date, Parent, Parent, Witnesses

      Roelof March 8 1752, Albert Terhunnen, Roelof Terhunnen and wife Matje Voorhees"[emphasis added]

      Comment: This would be the baptism of Roelof's grandson, Roelof son of Albert. This child, Roelof, received a gun and great Bible according to his grandfather Roelofs 1753 will.42

      • Finally, there is a deed that ties Roelof Jans Terhune to Marretje Van Voorhees, daughter of Gerret Court Van Voorhees:
      • Source: KESKACHAUGE or The First White Settlement on Long Island, by Frederick Van Wyck.

      Pages 302 to 303 [Van Wyck is tracking Van Voorhees land transfers]: "...Coert Stevense the patentee married, prior to 1666 Marretje Gerrits [Van Couwenhoven], sister of Neeltje... their five sons were Steven, Albert, Gerrit, Cornelis and Johannes... by the deed dated October 9, 1699 (Liber 2 of Conveyances, page 205), ...Coert Stevense the patentee and Marretje conveyed to "Garrett Coerte" the tract between the Strom Kill and the "broken lands or Kill thereby."

      "Gerrit Coerte, by his will... dated October 1, 1703 and proved September 23, 1704, devised all his property to his wife Willemke for life, provided that if she should remarry she should only possess for life the messuage of about 45 morgens with half the meadow and the rights and privileges belonging; all the "land lying after the said messuage commonly called Bashhurys hooke lying by ye Stromkill," after his wife's remarriage, he directed should be taken into possession by his 'overseers,' for the benefit of his children, Maricke, Coert, Alke, Peter, Hendrick, Steven and Gertie': all his property, after his wife's death, he gave to his same seven children in equal shares. (Liber 7 of Wills, page 173, New York County)

      "Willemke married Peter Rose sometime before July 1, 1706. (See a lease of that date, Liber 3 of Conveyances, page 70)

      Alke or Altie married, October 17,1708, Albert Janse Terhune, (Early Settlers... page 299) Gertie or Greetje married Gerret Van Aersdalen (Ibid, page 378) and Marike married Jan Remsen (Ibid), but before the date of the deed next mentioned she had married Roelof Terhune."

      "By deed dated June 10, 1711, Roeloff Terhuynen and Marike his wife, and Albert Terhuynen and Aetkie his wife, after reciting that there was a certain messuage, - describing the one by the Strom Kill in substantially the same language as the language of the deed from Coert Stevense the patentee and Marretje to Gerrit Coerte - and other property, describing it, "with the rights and privileges of commons within said township, said messuage containing" about 168 acres, and reciting that the land described was late in the possession of Gerret Coerte, late of Flatlands, deceased, and was bequeathed by him 'to his six children in equal proportions,' with other recitals, conveyed to 'Coert Van Voorhuys' two equal sixth shares in the lands and rights of common mentioned in the recitals. (Liber 3 of Conveyances page 230)" [emphasis added by Barbara Terhune]
