bullet  General Notes:

Sources for the Oosterhout family are a letter from William Bogardus dated Jan 24, 1995, Homer C. Osterhout's typewritten manuscript of 1954, the MILLER genealogy which is appended to THOMAS, a compilation of the descendants of Jan Jansen Van Oosterhout. Marriages of the children are generally based on THOMAS.

Confusion when it comes to the son(s) Peiter Jans and Jans, for THOMAS shows well that there were two sons, showing marriages and children. Dates in THOMAS are confused however. MILLER shows Jan Peter bapt. 5 Nov 1666 with no Pieter. OSTERHOUT shows Jan bapt 5 Nov 1666 with only indications that there *might* be another child named Pieter.

Walter Thomas' work published by the Ulster Genealogical Society is a descendant report of Jans Jansen, but the dates are not as complete as the other two sources. It, however, references church records for further research. It is updated by Ms. Prehn the Ulster County Genealogical Society. The work by Prevost at the back of the update conforms to the history in OSTERHOUT. Records of Prevost appear to be based on the records of the Dutch Reformed Church at Kingston, although there are not reference numbers as in THOMAS. 1 2 3
