About Zacharie "Zachariah" Angevine
Zachariah Angevine, a French Huguenot (The Huguenots were members of the Protestant Reformed Church of France) and a immigrant ancestor, was the son of Louis Angevine and Marguerite Chalons. He was born about 1664 in France, possibly at La Rochelle and was a native of Loudun in Poitu. Zachariah married Anastasia Baptist in La Rochelle, France in 1684. Anastasia was born about 1666 in France. During the mid-1680's, the French soldiers were demanding that the French Huguenots in Poitu, France recant their religion. The penalty for not recanting was death or imprisonment so Zachariah and Anastasia decided to flee to Holland. Anastasia died in the spring of 1686 in Antwerp, Belgium while trying to escape. Her infant son also died along the way and was buried near Orgeres, north of Orleans, France.
Zachariah escaped and immigrated to America. He married Marie Naudin 5 March 1690/1 at the French Church in New York City. Marie, the daughter of Andre Sr. and Margaret Naudin, was born about 1676. Zachariah was a tailor. He was made a Freeman in New York City 16 December 1695. He took the Oath of Allegiance (to King William) during May 1696. He resided in New York City until 1701 then went to New Rochelle.
Marie died after 10 October 1715 in New Rochelle, New York. Zachariah died December 1739 in New Rochelle, New York. Both are buried in New Rochelle, New York.
