She Coffin and spirits 25 g. 10 St. Aanspreker 19 g. 10st. She Funerals were a unique event. This is from a 1690burial. She One account says Fitje died 21 Sep 1697 and another says 17 Oct1697. She An Aanspreker was funeral director. Donning the official dress of lowshoes, black stockings, black knickerbockers, a black cutaway coat with along flowing black mantle, white cravat, and a 3 cornered hat (or steek)from which floated a long black crepe streamer and a rosette which showedthe sex and marriage status (s or m) of the deceased (Prominent orwealthy people could have up to 20 aansprekers). All mourners andbearers dressed this way, while the aansprekers also added gloves (whiteor black depending on the sex of the deceased). After the body was laidto rest, the party returned to the sterfhuis, or home of the deceased,for beer, spirits, and food, prepared by the women, who traditionally didnot go to the cemetery. After a short interval, the guestsdeparted.(4). She Flour and milk 6 gl. 5 st. Sundries 15 gl. 5 st. 85 gl. 6st. She Fitje was my first direct ancestor to be buried 'with pall'. This cost was an additional 6 guilders after 1691. First used in 1678, it consisted of '10 El.* of Black Cloth, at 24 gl. per El.(240 gl.) and alinen cover to protect the pall (14gl.)' Cemeteries, located near the Churches, were at Tuers and Bergen Ave. and Vroom St. She was buried at Jersey City, Hudson, NJ. Her married name was Jansen. She In 1679 Fitje was living at 'Ghmoenepaen,' and had 'many children, all of whom were not unjust.' The farm owned by her is marked on the field map as lots numbered 14 and 15. The Labadists, in October, 1679 dined with her. An old lady in Brooklyn told them that Fitje came from Cologne. They have left this quaint record concerning her: 'We found her a little pious, after the manner of the country, and you could discover that there was something of the Lord in her, but very much covered up and defiled.' This is no light testimony to the old lady's religious attainments, considering that it is given by two men who seem to have looked upon all mankind, except that small portion which accepted their own peculiar views, as destined fuel for the everlasting bonfire. She was a member of the Bergen church in 1664.1 She On June 18, 1663, Fitje was among those who verbally requested thatCommunipaw be pallisaded for protection. She was a widow at that point.(YBHSNY 1914 p.28). She was born in 1611 at Cologne, Rheinland, Germany.2 She was the daughter of Hartman Wessels and Preyntje (?).
