Judge William W. Van Ness (1776-1823) built the mansion Talavera in Claverack, NY in 1807, which was bought by war hero John Van Ness Philip around 1860 and has been in that family since - there's a book about it. John VNP (1823-1862) was the son of Henry G. Philip b.1793 and Catherine Douw Hoffman b.1799. Catherine's parent's were Martin H. Hoffman b.1772 and Geertruy Van Ness, who md 10 Jan 1795 at Kinderhook RC. But which Geertruy? There are at least 3:
daughter of General David VN & Cornelia Hermance bt. 1771 Red Hook,
d/o Peter VN & Elbertje Hogeboom bt. 1772 Claverack, or d/o William VN & Elizabeth Coneyn bt.1779 Claverack (this one would make her sister to the Judge).
I would guess d/o Peter, only because Martin & Geertruy had a son Peter, but does anyone know for sure?
