Terhune Family

Generation Four

With this generation, in the early to mid 1700s, more of the descendants of Albert Terheunen, the immigrant, sought greener pastures. Many of them went to New Jersey, others to Pennsylvania. From New Jersey and Pennsylvania, in the late 1700s, their children and grandchildren went to Kentucky, Virginia, and Ohio. In the early 1800s, cheap, fertile land in Indiana and points west became available and alluring to the next generation. This generation, the fourth, we trace only those descendants who remained in Gravesend and Flatlands, Kings County, New York. The only fourth generation Terhune remaining in Gravesend or Flatlands was Albert Roelofse Terhune.

JAN/JOHN ALBERTSE TERHUNE was baptized April 06, 1767 at Gravesend Reformed Dutch Church. According to Teunis G Bergen's, Genealogies of Long Island Families in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society Record Volume II page 139 "John born 1766 and died June 29, 1842 single. He owned and occupied the Gravesend side of the ancestral farm. He was a surveyor and for many years, Supervisor of the town of Gravesend and one of the most influential citizens of Kings County."

The sons of Albert4 Roelofse Terhune, viz. Jan/John and Roelof had no children; Isaac had no surviving sons, and Abraham wrote in his will only of his wife and a daughter, Marie. In June 1842, Albert's last surviving son, Jan/John Albertse5 Terhune died. Thus marking the end of Terhune land ownership in Flatlands and Gravesend. The 1850 census shows only one Terhune, Ann (Ammerman) Terhune, widow of Abraham Albertse Terhune, living with Willemptje Lott (possibly her granddaughter) in Flatlands, Kings County, New York.
