Jurian Westfall

My gr. gr. gr. gr. gr. gr. gr. gr. grandfather was Juriaen Westfall (Westvael) born in 1629. My first recorded Westfall ancestor was Jurian Westfall who came to America in 1642. On August 4, 1642 my ancestor Jurian Westfall (Juriaen Van Westphalen) arrived in New Amsterdam, New York aboard a ship called "The Houttuyn" from Luyderdorp, Holland. He was only 13 at the time. His family had migrated to Holland from Westphalia in Germany in the 1600's. It is not known whether his parents died in Holland or enroute, or he came with other relatives.

He then went up the Hudson River 135 miles arriving at Fort Orange (later Albany) New York on August 11, 1642. He arrived as an indentured servant to killiaen Van Reassalaer. He was placed in the home of Michael Jansen ... Jurian moved south of Albany to Esopus (later Kingston) New York with his friend and fellow indentured servant Evert Pels in about 1653. He was granted 32 morgan (70 acres) of land Sept. of 1654. He married Marretge Jansen in that same year. On Aug. 17, 1659 Jurian and 12 others petitioned Peter Stuyvesant to establish a chuch at Wiltwyck (Esopus was briefly named Wiltwyck and later after British rule called Kingston}. Jurian signed with a three pronged fork of trident mark. The church was established. Numerous records regarding Jurian and his descendants are available in records of the then Dutch Reformed Church of New York.

I found the following information in a book "American Nomads" written by Emily Stowell whose ancestor Jacob Kuykendall married Sara Westfall daughter of Johannes.... The Esopus Indians lived near Wiltwyck and for a number of years they were peaceful, but in 1663 they burned and looted the town. There were 12 men, 2 children, and 4 women killed, and 6 women and 7 children taken prisoner. Jurian and his family escaped harm at the time, but later in 1667 or 1668 Jurian was killed by Indians who were at war with the Esopus Indians while he was guiding a troop of British soldiers.

Jurian married Marretje Hansen Van Nordstrand (or Van Nostrand) in abt. 1653 or 1654. Marretje was born in about 1636 in Nordstrand, Schleswig-Holstein, Denmark (now Germany). Her father was Hans Hansen or Jansen (Hans Hansen Van Nordstrand). Hans was born Bet. 1600 and 1610 on Nordstrand Island, Schleswig-Holstein, Denmark (now Germany), and migrated to New Amsterdam in 1639. Hans was a farmer, and owned a farm in the Flatbush neighborhood located in the borough of Brooklyn in Kings County, Long Island, New York. The community name derives from the Dutch for "level forest" and is presently bounded by Parkside Avenue, Nostrand Avenue, Avenue H and Coney Island Avenue. It includes the southernmost portion of Prospect Park. Marretje's father Hans Hansen Van Nostrand (or Nordstrand) married 1st Rymerig Volkert, and they had these children-Jan, Volkert, Marritje, Simon, and Rommetje Hansen Van Nostrand. His first wife died before 1645, and Hans placed Marritje who was just 9 in the home of a farmer Phillip Garretsen where she learned the art of homemaking. Hans Hansen Van Nostrand married for a second time 29 Nov 1652 at Kingston, NY to Janneken Gerrits Van Loon, and they had these children: Catherine, Gerret, Jan, and Peter Hansen Van Nostrand. The children and descendants of Hans most often spelled their name Van Nostrand, though it often appears recorded spelled a number of different ways, Van Noorstrand, Van Nordstrand, Van Norstrand, Van Noordstrandt. Hans died in 1690 in Flatlands, (Brooklyn), Kings, Co., NY. After Jurian's death Marritje remarried to Jacob Jansen Stoutenburgh. Marritje died after 1670 in Ulster, Kingston County, New York.

Michael Harness Jr. was a son of Michael Ernst (Hörner) Harness, Sr. and his wife, Maria Elisabetha Dieffenbach. They had 13 children. He was a grandson of Joachim Ernst Kraft Horner born about 1660 in the village of Unterowisheim, Germany in the region of Germany known as Baden (today's Baden Wurttemberg). Ernst Horner and three of his children (apparently without wife Appollonia) arrived in New York City in June, 1710 as a part of the Palatine migration from Europe. It is unknown whether Apollonia accompanied her husband and three of their children to America. There is no account of her arrival. She may have died during the journey down the Rhine river to Rotterdam, or in England while waiting for the boat to New York, or more likely on the voyage to America itself. Many other emigrants did die enroute. Joachim Ernst Kraft Horner's three children and their approximate ages at the time of arrival in America were-Anna Margaretha Horner about 20, Johann Conrad Mattheus Horner-15, and Johann Michael Ernst Horner-about 9 who after his arrival in America would become known by a number of surnames, among them Michael/Ernst Harness, Sr. Joachim Ernst Kraft Horner died in August or October of 1710, probably at West Camp, a Palatine settlement on the Hudson river in New York state. His daughter, Margaretha, married a fellow German immigrant, Johannes Kayser, in September, 1710 at West Camp.

I found the following information about Michael Harness Jr. and the Indian raid that resulted in his death on the internet at this website- http://home.comcast.net/~harnessfamily/History.htm

Michael Harness, Jr. (Born about 1725 in Tulpehocken Creek Settlement, PA, and killed in Indian raid August 20, 1763 in Hampshire County, VA). He was the son of Michael Ernst (Hörner) Harness, Sr. and his wife, Maria Elisabetha Dieffenbach. They had 13 children. Michael Harness Jr. was married to Catherine Westfall. Michael Harness, Jr. was killed by Indians in 1763 in Welton's Meadow on Loony's Creek in colonial Hampshire County, VA. Family tradition says that Michael was interred in the family cemetery on a hill just above Fort Harness, but no trace of that cemetery has ever been found. Michael's widow, Catherine Westfall, later married Abraham Kuykendall. According to Terry Gruber, a Hampshire County historian, the Indian raid that resulted in the death of Michael Harness, Jr. was one of a series of Indian raids that took place in colonial Hampshire County, VA during Pontiac's War of 1763-64. After the French surrendered to the British in 1763, a series of strong, semi-coordinated attacks broke out on the Ohio frontier at the instigation of the Ottawa chief, Pontiac. In spite of the fact that there were no reporters present, Indian raids occurring in Virginia were frequently reported in Benjamin Franklin's newspaper, the Pennsylvania Gazette. The following report concerning the death of Michael Harness, Jr. and others during the Indian raid is from from the October 16, 1763 edition of that newspaper.

WILLIAMSBURGH, September 16, 1763 An express arrived in town yesterday, with letters to his Honour the Governor from Col. Stephen, by which we have the following advices, viz. That a Party of Indians attacked 6 men in Weltonmeadow, on Loonycreek, the 20th of August, about XI at night; when they killed Michael Harness and Jonathan Welton, wounded Joab Welton, and took one Delea Prisoner. The Indian that wounded Joab Welton was upon the point of repeating the stroke with the tomahawk, and killing him, when the savage was shot by one Delea, brother to the prisoner of that name; on his discharging his piece, he was attacked by several Indians at once; the first that made up to him he knocked down with his gun, but the savages wresting it out of his hand, he knocked down another with a tomahawk, which he carried under his belt. By this time the Indians had jostled him to the place where his brother lay tied; upon seeing him taken prisoner, he immediately dropt all thoughts of further resistance, and gave himself up, expecting likewise to be taken prisoner; but they hurried him away to the Indian that was shot, tomahawked him, scalped him, and wounded him with a knife, leaving him for dead, but the poor man crawled to some hay, and covered himself up, where he was found next morning perfectly in his senses, told the whole affair circumstantially, and lived two days afterwards. On receiving this intelligence, Col. Stephen ordered Major Wilson and Captain Collins of the Hampshire militia to raise two companies of voluntiers, and pursue the enemy, as soon as they could possibly provide themselves with Provisions. Major Wilson took the rout of Loonycreek; and Capt. Collins being ordered to reconnoiter the head branches of Pattersoncreek, he fell in with the Majorparty at the foot of the Allegheny mountains. After communicating intelligence, they thought it advisable to pursue the Indians over the mountains; accordingly, on the 30th of August, after a pursuit of 120 miles, over as rugged mountains as can be found, they came up with them on a branch of the Monongahela. Being on fresh tracks in the evening, Major Wilson was certain that their encampment was at no great distance; he therefore detached parties different ways in the night, to listen for horse bells, or see if they could discover fire: the noise of the bells directed them to the encampment, and before day they had crept within 30 paces of the enemy, and surrounded them. The orders were not to fire until it was light enough to see all the births where the Indians lay; but a big fellow rising to make up the fire, one of the party fired at him a little too soon, which brought on the engagement. This is to be attributed to the young mans eagerness to revenge the death of his father, who had been killed and scalped by the savages. Major Wilson, however, routed the party, took 3 Indian scalps, wounded many more, and took 11 rifles and 2 smooth barrel guns from them, with all their war equipage, and retook a number of horses. They likewise released Delea the prisoner, and got back the three scalps taken in Welton Meadow.
