    • Notes 
      • "...she was the daughter of Jan Corneliszen and Sophia (Martense) Damen,
        and her father's uncle, Jan Damen, owned the Wall Street section of lower
        Manhattan, ...in the 20th Century the most valuable real estate in the
        world. Michael adapted well to the heterogeneous culture of the
        metropolis peopled by Dutch, French, and English immigrants; while still
        in his twenties he was a magistrate at Brooklyn in 1679 (and again in
        1691), ...serving also as a Lieutenant in the Foot Guard.

        He and his wife sold their mill at Bushwick in 1695, and their home there
        in 1699, (NYGBR-54), joining his father at Kingston; not long thereafter
        they settled at Poughkeepsie. The 1714 Census shows their household as
        composed of one male over 60, two males 16 or over and one under 16; one
        female between 16 and 60, two under 16, and two slaves. Since Peter (3)
        then had his own domicile, the two males were presumably Jan and Michael
        Jr., with Damen (3), the youngest, under 16.
