13. ALBERT JANSE3 TERHUNE (JAN ALBERTS2, ALBERT ALBERTS1 TERHEUNEN)105 was born before March 25, 1688 in Flatlands, Kings County, New York and died between April 11 and December 18, 1721 in Flatlands, Kings County, New York.106 He married AELTIE GERRITJE VAN VOORHEES107 on October 17, 1708 in the Reformed Dutch Church, Flatbush, New York,108, 109 daughter of GERRIT COURT VAN VOORHEES and WILLEMTJE LUYSTER. She was baptized October 04, 1685 at the Reformed Dutch Chuch, Flatlands, New York. Her mother was Willimtie Pietersen.110

ALBERT JANSE TERHUNE was baptized April 13, 1688 at the Flatlands Reformed Dutch Church, Kings County, New York. In 1719, he was in the Kings County, New York Militia [Documentary History of New York Volume III, pages 183 to 184] His will was dated April 11, 1721 at Flatbush, Kings County, New York and probated December 18, 1721 at Kings County, New York.106

Albert's wife has been the subject of much controversy created by his will106 wherein he refers to his wife Aeltie, his "father-in-law Peter Nevius," and his "brother-in-law Kourt Voorhees ."

  • Most existing family histories and genealogies identify his wife as either Aeltje NEVIUS or Aeltje VAN VOORHEES, daughter of Stephen Court Van Voorhees and his wife, Agatha Jans, or both. All of these conjectures appear to be erroneous in view of existing deed records and Dutch naming conventions.

Their Flatbush Reformed Dutch Church marriage record located in the latest publication of these records by Professor David Voorhees (Holland Society 1998) on page 287 wherein Dominee Antonides records the banns on 01 September 1708 and marriage on 17 October 1708. The entry reads:

"Albert ter Huynen, and Aaltie Voorhees, both born and residing in New Amersfoort."

The children of Albert Jans Terhune and Aeltje Van Voorhees were John, Garret, Ann, Willemptje and Sarah. The names of their children follow traditional Dutch naming patterns with John and Anne named for paternal grandparents and Gerret and Willemctje named for the maternal grandparents. There is neither a son named Stephen, nor a daughter named Agatha or Eva.

Based on the above, Albert Jan Terhune's wife appears to be Aeltje VAN VOORHEES, daughter of Gerret Court Van Voorhees and Willemptje Pieterse Luyster.

  • CLARIFYING "my father in law Peter Nevius" in the will of Albert Janse Terhune106.

Part of a long on going discussion among Dutch-Colonies mail list subscribers is the following notable observation:

  • Date: Sunday, 10 January 1999 12:49:14 Eastern Standard Time
  • From: Cynthia Zuber
  • To: [email protected]
  • Subject: Re: Sarah Terhune, wife of Harmanus Van Barkeloo
  • ...the "Aeltje" who was the spouse of Albert [Jans Terhune] born 1684 and the mother of the Sarah Terhune in question.

    ...I am thinking...the statement, or possibly the translation of "my father-in law, Peter Nevius" is in error.

    This *thought* is based upon the marriage of Jannetje Roelofse SCHENCK, sister to Albert's mother, Annetje Rolofse SCHENCK, to Pieter NEVIUS on 22 June 1684. Rather than father-in-law, Pieter NEVIUS is Albert TERHUNE's "uncle" by his marriage to Albert's maternal aunt..."

    "In-law" in those days did not mean what we use it for today. Paul Drake, J.D. in "What Did They Mean By That" defines in-law as:

    "early, those who were related through affinity, adoption, or any other legal action that resulted in one being considered a part of the family unit" (by "affinity" he means marriage)

    • Finally, there is the same deed, quoted above for his brother Roelof, that proves both wives to be the daughters of Gerrit Coerten Van Voorhees and Willemtje Pieters Luyster.
    • Source: KESKACHAUGE or The First White Settlement on Long Island by Frederick Van Wyck, published in 1924 by G.P. Putnam's Sons, New York and London, The Knickerbocker Press, page 302 to 303.

    In conclusion, we submit that Albert Janse3 Terhune had only one wife, Aeltie Gerritje Van Voorhees.

    ALBERT TERHUNE and AELTIE VAN VOORHEES were married October 17, 1708 at the Reformed Dutch Church, Flatbush, Kings County, New York.112, 113
