Tryntie (Catharine) Slot, or Sloat. He was born at Hackensack, N. J.f in 1705; and was baptised March 18, 1705, the witnesses being David De Maree and Abeltie Slot. [These dates are from the records of the Reformed Dutch Church, Hackensack, N. J.]

Anne Magdalene Valleau and Lucas Lozier were living at Hackensack at the time of their marriage, but at different periods of their wedded life they resided in the city of New York. In the year 1749, when her mother's will was made, they were living in that city, and later returned to Bergen County, N. J.

Anne Magdalene and her husband united with the Reformed Dutch Church, Schraalenburgh, N. J., on confession of faith, June 10, 1750. Lucas Lozier was made a freeman of New York City, June 21, 1757,* and when residing there he and his wife were attendants at the Reformed Dutch Church. They eventually settled at Hyde Park, Dutchess County, N. Y., about 1762, at the time Dr. John Bard began improvements at this place.

Anne Magdalene and Lucas Lozier had no children. They frequently acted as sponsors at the baptisms of the children of their relatives and friends, as shown by the records of several churches, f Mr. Edward Braman of Hyde Park, N. Y.,

to Harlem (he was one of its pioneers) from the island of St. Christopher, West Indies. He was attended by his young sister Jeanne; neither of them being married. This was about 1656 or 1657.

Francois Le Sueur who left the town of Harlem early in 1663, was the ancestor of the families of Leseur and Lozier, now mostly seated in New York City, and Bergen County, New Jersey. Francois first lived in Flatbush, after coming to Manhattan, and in 1659 married Jannetie, daughter of Hillebrand Pietersen, of Amsterdam, in which year Jannetie's brother, Pieter Hillebrands, was captured by Indians at Esopus, but this did not deter her from removing there with her husband. Before going from Harlem, he sold some of his effects, and his wife bought "a litte bed," etc., at Sneden's sale. Le Sueur's sister, Jeanne, went with them to Esopus, and there married, in 1668, Cornells Arents Viervant, of Utrecht, Holland; they left one child, Cornelia. Viervant and his wife returned to Harlem, and after his death she married William Innis. Le Sueur was living in 1669, but on November 30, 1671, his widow bound out her son Hillebrand, eight years old. He was engaged bv the deacons, in 1673, to ring the bell at 5 gl. a year. Afterward the widow married Antoine Tilba, and by him had children also. Those by Le Sueur, all but the first, born at Esopus, were: 1. Jannetie, born 1660, who married Jan Postma (now Post), and Thomas Innis; 2. Hillebrand, born 1663; 3 and 4. John and Jacob, born 1665; 5. Nicholas, born 1668. Hillebrand married, 1688, Elsie, daughter of Jurian Tappan, but soon died, leaving apparently but one child, Jannetie, born 1689, who married William Elting. Hillebrand's widow married Abraham Delamater, previously of Harlem. John, of Kingston, married Rachel Smedes, in 1686, was an elder of the church and quite dist1nguished; he had Jannetie, born 1687; John, born 1689; Catharine, born 1692; etc., of whom the first married Abraham Low. Nicholas, whose branch of the family write their name Lozier, married at New York City, May 8, 1691, Tryntie, daughter of Pieter Jansen Slot (Sloat). He afterwards left Kingston (Esopus), and settled near Hackensack, where he married, in January, 1709, Antie, daughter of Derick Banta. Nicholas Lozier had fifteen children, Ariz.: Hillebrand, born 1695; Peter, born 1697; John, born 1699; Mary, born 1701; Antie, born 1703; Lucas, born 1705; Jacobus, born 1707; Benjamin, born 1708; Tryntie, born 1710; Hester, born 1711; Rachel, born 1714; Jacob, born 1719; Abraham, born 1721; Leah, born 1723; Margaret, born 1726. These intermarried with the Demarests and others. In Ulster County, New York, the French pronunciation of the name was, for a time, tolerably preserved in the form of "Lashier," but it is now extinct there, though the blood runs in the Post family and others.

"The Banta Genealogy" by Theodore M. Banta, p. 33,says: "Antie Banta married, January 26,1709, Claes (or Nicholas) Lozier, b. 1668, son of Francis Le Sueur, whose first wif&jvaa Tryntie Slot. She joined the church at Hackensack, 1708. ^

"A Genealogical History of Hudson and Bergen Counties, New Jersey," by Cornelius Burnham Harvey, 1900, states that Nicholas Lozier had twenty children, viz.: "Anthony, Jannetie, Peter, Hildebrand, Jacon1ina, Mary tie, John, Antie, Lucas, Jacobus, Benjamin, Catharine, Hester, Rachel, Dirk, Jacobus, Abram, Lea, Margaretta, and Maria."

sends the following: "Madam Lesier having no children, 'brought up a girl,' (I never heard who she was), and this girl afterwards married a man named Luke Schultz. When she returned to New Jersey to live she left this couple in her house to take care of the place, but Schultz managed so badly that she concluded to sell, after a few years, and did so. What became of Schultz and his wife I do not know, but when I was a boy, a disregarded old book still remained in the house, with the boldly written name of Luke Schultz in it."

The house of Madame Lesier, mentioned in this account, stood just north of the boundary line at Hyde Park, between the old Braman farm and Placentia (a family country place), originally all on one great tract of land belonging to Peter Fauconnier. Madame Lesier built this house, which was of stone, and which at an early date was called "Belgrove," she, perhaps, giving it this name. A part of it stood until 1894. The land it was erected upon was lot No. 2 of the Hyde Park Patent, belonging to her, Anne Magdalene Valleau, the wife of Lucas Lesier (commonly called Madame Lesier). This lot, in November, 1799, was purchased by Cyrus Braman from Phineas Eames. Lucas Lester died at Hyde Park, at the time of the Revolution, when his widow returned to New Jersey, where she was living when she sold her property.*

The date of Mrs. Lozier's death has not been ascertained.

Peter Theodoras Valleau

Peter Theodorus, a son of Peter and Magdalene Valleau, was born April 28, 1716, and was baptised September 27, 1716, the witnesses being Peter Fauconnier, his grandfather, replacing Theodorus Fauconnier, his uncle, then absent, and Elisabeth Jannetie, his aunt, present at the time.f He married Elizabeth Anthony, who was born in 1717. They had twelve children, viz.: John, Andrew, Steven Cummins, Samuel, Samuel 2nd, Jacob, Mary, Magdalene, Theodorus, Marguerite, and two others whose names are unknown.

Peter Theodorus Valleau, lived in Bergen County, N. J., of which he was made Sheriff in 1753; his bond of £800 for the said office, dated July 25,1753, was signed by himself, Henry Van de Linda, and Peter Valleau.

Peter Theodorus Valleau removed to the Province of New York, where he died in 1761. His wife died November 2, 1805, and was buried at Trinity Church, New York City. win §
