About Jacob Janse Jacobse Schermerhorn

http://www.nysm.nysed.gov/albany/bios/s/jascher5468.html Jacob J. Schermerhorn, Jr. by Stefan Bielinski

[Jacob J. Schermerhorn, Jr. was born in December 1685] ..... He was the eldest son of Rensselaerswyck-based skipper Jacob Schermerhorn, and his wife, Gerritje Van Buren Schermerhorn.

Jacob Jacobse Schermerhorn, born about 1662, was master of the Sloop "Star," plying between Albany and New York from 1681 to 1684, and his brother Cornelius was subsequently master of the same vessel. The "Star" was probably the property of his father, Jacob Janse, and was used in connection with the latter's trading and exporting business.

Jacob Schermerhorn settled in Schodack, after his marriage, on property belonging to his father. In the will of Jacob Janse Schermerhorn, dated May 20, 1688, the following is stated: "I do freely remit and discharge my son Jacob Schermerhorn who lives upon my farm at Schodack of ye rent which he is owing for ye same and which will be due to ye day of my decease, not willing that my executrix or administrator shall any way molest him, the said Jacob Schermerhorn, Jr., or his heirs for ye same." In the subsequent division of the property, in 1700, Jacob Jacobse Schermerhorn came into possession of the property referred to, and his descendants retained the original farm until it was sold in 1836, by Barent C. Schermerhorn in the sixth generation.
