Am trying to track down info on the line of Anneke Jans who owned large tracts of land in what is downtown Manhattan today. Anneke Jans was born Anneke Webber and was the great-grandaughter of the ruling sovereign of Holland at that time. She emigrated in about 1600. She was married to Roeleff Jansen and their children were:
and by her second husband Dominie Everandus Bogardus:
William, Cornelius, Jonas and Peter Bogardus
I am a descendent of her nephew Wolfert Webber, who came to America in 1633. He had a son, Samuel - killed by indians in 1716, married to Deborah ?. Their son John married Magdaline Weare and then Elizabeth Jepson. John's daughter Mary Webber married Larzens Rowe - their daughter Martha Rowe married John Cole - they were my great, great, great grandparents.
I'd appreciate any info on this line.
