    [The biography of CYRUS T. VANARTSDALEN of Newtown township, Bucks county, born in Northampton township April, 1823, claims an 8 generation line of Van Artsdalen descent. As no documentation is offered, this should be regarded with caution.]
    "The paternal ancestor of the Van Artsdalens, who bore their patronymic, was Simon Jansen Van Artsdalen, who emigrated from Holland in 1656 ,and settled in Flatlands, Long Island, where he married Pieterje Claesen Wycoff. who had accompanied her brother to New Netherlands in 1636. Simon Jansen Van Artsdalen was a magistrate of Flatlands. 1661-1686. and a deacon of the Dutch church there. He died in 1710, leaving several sons and daughters: among the former was Cornelis Symonse Van Artsdalen, born in Flatlands in 1665. and died there in 1745. He was thrice married, first to Tlletje Reinerse Wizzelpenning. second, on March 16, 1687, to Aeltje Willemse Couvenhoven, born December 14. 1665, daughter of Willemse Gerretse Covenhoven and Altie Brinckerhoff, and granddaughter of Gerret Wolfertse Couvenhoven, who had emigrated from Holland with his father in 1630, having been born in Holland in 1610. Cornelis Symonse Van Artsdalen married third, Maretje or Mary Dirckse, on May 2, 1691. By the three wives he had ten children: Aeltje, Jacobus, Dirck, Petronella, Maria,' Abraham, Jannetje. Jacobus, who married Alice, daughter of Jacob Hogcland, of New Jersey, Philip, John, and Simon, born August 16, 1697. Cornelis Symonse Van Artsdalen purchased a farm of his father at Gravesend, May 7. 1700, and is supposed to have lived thereon until 1726 when he sold it to his brother John and removed to Somerset county, New Jersey. / He was active in building the Dutch church there, and was prominent in the affairs of the community. It is possible that he returned to Long Island prior to his death, as his will is registered at the surrogate's office at New York in 1745, though dated at Somerset in 1738."
