About Theophilus Stoffel Dircksen Langestraet

Dick Stoffels Langesstraet immigrated to the New World in 1657 when he was 17 years old! He landed in Neiuw Amsterdam of Neiuw Nederlands, which later came to be called New York City under British rule in 1687.

Our birth and death dates show Dirck as living for 101 years. This is rather unlikely, given the times. Our dates also show that his son Aaron was born when he was 69 and his son Stoffels when he was 72 years old.

There may well be an error here. While this is possible, it needs more investigation!!! -------------------- Stoffle Dircksen Longstreet was the son of Dirck Stoffelse Langstraat and Katerina Van Lieuwen. Stoffle Dircksen Longstreet was born circa 1666 at Flatlands, Kings County, New York. He married Moyka Lane, daughter of Gijsbert Thyssen Laenen and Jennike Smith, circa 1695. Stoffle Dircksen Longstreet died between 1739 and 1741 at Shrewsbury, Monmouth County, New Jersey. He died at farm on the Manasaquan River, New Jersey. His estate was probated on 1-Mar-1741
