About Daniel Litscho

"Daniel Litschoe, sergeant in the service of the West India Company, was stationed at Parahyba, Brazil, when, about 1646, he married Anna Claes Croesens, the young widow of Jan Jansen Swaartveger. She had a little son, Hermanus, then three years old. the boy was born in the neighboring province of Rio Grande do Norte (Natal), at the "Castel" or fort. Swaarrtveger, undoubtedly, was also a soldier.

Daniel must have been transferred to New Amsterdam soon after his marriage, for his only child, Anna, was baptised there, June 6, 1647 (Baptisms in Dutch Ch..,NY). Daniel was still in the Company's employ, but in the ensuing March, he is found among the tavern-keepeers of the town.... He kept an orderly tavern until his death, which occurred between Dec 6, 1661 & April 6, 1662, when his widow was required to file an inventory of his property.

Their daughter, Anna, married William Peartree, who was the mayor of the city in 1701-1707." (car)
