Gerta Newell, granddaughter of Johonnis, married Martin Wyckoff May 5th 1770. Many of their descendants are found in the country today. Amoung them are found many Gertrudes, the English of Gerta. Martin Wyckoff was a man of wealth, owning a large tract of land extending form Cushatong Mountain to beyond what is now the state road from White House to Flemington. He is said to have owned twenty slaves. The original Martin Wyckoff home is where the late Martin Wyckoff, a great-grandson, lived. The original tract also embraced the land later owned by Cornelius Wyckoff, Jacob Wyckoff,Henry Martin Vorhees,Cornelius Swackhammer and others: also a tract of forest land called the "Big Woods".
