Information on Jacob Westfall

From Dennis Peterson (peterson_dennis@att.net):

The data you have from Walter Westfall is very WRONG.
a) Jacob Westfall was born on Minisink Island in the Delaware river next to Montague NJ. It is about 10 miles south of present port Jervis, NY. He was not C: in Minisink. This church wasn't built til 1741. Til then the Kingston Church sent missionaries and circuit riders to handle marriages and christenings. Jacob's C: is listed in the Kingston, NY Dutch Reformed Church records. (begun 1661).
b) Jacob didn't have two wifes. The Maritje Cuddebeck listed was his mother. He did not have Benjamin, Cornelius, and Christina. He had 8 children and all are listed in order on my Find-A-Grave memorial. Note that son William was christened in 1735 and not the others. William was the first and as Jacob born 1715 he was twenty years old so must have wed at age 19. As William only one christened, Jacob must have left for VA before 2nd child born. I recall seeing a record of Jacob doing road work in 1740 so its documented he was there by then.
