Cornelius' surname should have been COURTRIGHT. His father's name appears in church records as "Louwerens JANSEN". Following the Dutch naming custom of the time, his children were called "LOUWE" which was subsequently shortened to "LOW". This later name was adopted by his children as their surname rather than COURTRIGHT which most of the others in the COURTRIGHT family used. In 1728 Cornelius purchased 230 acres of land in Somerset County. He and his famuily later moved to a farm near Neshanic. His will which was dated 3/24/1763 and probated 8/16/1763 names his wife, Judith; sons, Derick, Cornelis, John and Garret; and daughters; Marytie, wife of Abraham BODINE (a bible record says Cornelius BODINE); Judith, wife of Johannis VAN NEST, and Antje. Neither Gysbert nor Catalyntje are mentioned.
