About Moses Depuy (du Puy), Sr.

New Amsterdam Immigrant

The name of Moses DEPUIS is included on a list of persons who took the oath of allegiance at Ulster County, N.Y., 1 September 1687.

Leroy Beck DePUY, DEPUY/DEPUE FAMILY HISTORY (1984), p.8;

Kenneth Scott and Ken Stryker-Rodda, DENIZATION, NATURALIZATIONS AND OATHS OF ALLEGIANCE IN COLONIAL NEW YORK, pp.25,86-87.

Moses, youngest son of Nicholas DEPUY and Catryntje de VOS, married Maritje WYNCOOP, daughter of Cornelis WYNKOOP and Maria Janse LANGENDYCK, and took up a large tract of land in the vicinity of Rochester, Ulster County, New York. There is a tradition that Moses DEPUY was about to set sail in command of a ship, and pending the loading of the vessel he visited Kingston and met Miss Maria WYNKOOP, fell in love at first sight, abandoned his contemplated voyage, and courted and married her. Moses and Maria (WYNCOOP) DEPUY were the parents of Nicholas DEPUY. Nicholas DEPUY, son of Moses, was the pioneer settler in Smithfield, Monroe County, Pennsylvania where he bought, in 1725, 3000 acres of land from the Indians.
