The first Ostrander in America (Pieter Pietresen Ostrander, bpt. July 1657 in the Amsterdam Lutheran Church) was four years old when he arrived on the Dutch ship De St. Jan Baptist in August 1661 with his mother Geesje Jans, sister Tryntje Pieters and stepfather Arent Teunissen.

There were no Ostrander ancestors on De Bonte Koe (the Spotted Cow)in 1660. The Bonte Koe myth is an old legend that was disproved more than a decade ago. Go to for details
