Birth and deathdates from tombstone in the Fishkill Churchyard.

Not much is known about Ariaantje Oosterhout, but she was evidently descended from a prominent Dutch family. One indication is that she is descended from Anneke Jans Bogardus, who was the wife of Pastor Evarardus Bogardus, the 2nd pastor of the church in New Amsterdam, now New York City. One note I have says that Anneke was 'owner of 60 acres in the business portion of NYC'. This might help explain some references in letters written in the 1860's by her grandaughter Sarah DuBois Dye - "Aunt Sally" - to men who were agents trying to contact heirs in the family to sign releases to that land that had been leased. The land in question was in Lower Manhatten and by the 1860's was worth a lot of money. Further research is needed here, for sure. 1


Ariaantje married Jonathan DU BOIS, son of Pierre (Or Peter) DU BOIS and Jeannetje BURHANS, on 16 Aug 1732 in Kingston Drc. (Jonathan DU BOIS was born on 5 Jul 1704, christened on 3 Sep 1704 in Kingston Drc, died on 5 Jan 1787 and was buried in Fishkill Drc Churchyard.)
