About Alexander "Sander" Boijer

See The Swedish American Genealogist (1998) ISSN 0275-9314, New Sweden Settlers, 1638-1664, Part 6 (1654, continued), p. 140:

(citing Gehring, 1:3, 6, 12-16, 19-20, 272, 361-362) In May 1654, Rising reported that Sander Boyer was considered a "malicious and hateful man," but, since he had a Swedish wife, he was allowed to stay at Fort Trinity. (citing Rising's Journal, 161, 167.) Sander Boyer made purchases from the company store from 6 July 1654 to 10 November 1654 and sold his tobacco crop to the store on 18 May 1655. (citing Jungh, 81;Von Elswick, 134.) He then returned to Manhattan where his two sons,Samuel and Peter, were baptized 1 December 1655. (citing Baptisms, NewYork Dutch Church, 40). By the end of that month he had returned to Fort Casimir, where he remained. Stuyvesant granted him a lot near the fort in 1656 and he was still living 18 February 1661, when he sought restitution of land sold to Jacob Alrichs, deceased, which had not been paid for. (Citing several references in Gehring and in the NYHM: Register of Solomon Lachaire, 11, 26-27) B

"Boyer was survived by one known son, Jan (John) Boyer, and one known daughter, Joseyn. (Citing NCR, 1:247, 398, 480, 2:71.)
