Note from the editor of this Livingston Material.

"I am attaching a brief descrioption of the Modified Henry System of
numbering individuals, which I use. This should make the information
easier to interpret.

"The numbering system used in my files is the Modified Henry system. Each
unique number represents the generation (the number of digits) and the birth
order of each individual, as well as his complete ancestry, back to the
first listed progenitor (1. or A.). Starting with immigrant, or first known
ancestor as "1.", the next generation would include: "11.", "12". and "13.",
three children. Where more than 9 children were born in any family, the
letters "a", "b", "c", etc. are used to represent the individual. Where
birth order is unknown, letters at the end of the alphabet are used for the
individuals, i.e. "w", "x", "y" and "z", etc. After each 5 generations, a
"." is placed to make generation counting easier.

My files contain primarily information from secondary and tertiary sources.
Only for generations going back to my great grand-parents have primary
sources been searched. If a question exists regarding the validity of
information, a "?" is shown. If different sources conflict on data,
multiple data is given. It has been observed that some compilers have been
careless in distinguishing between birth and baptismal dates, or between
death and burial dates. This is probably the most common source of


1. The present 2-letter US Post Office abbreviations are used
for states.

2. Months are abbreviated to three letters

3. Periods are usually not used for common abbreviations, eg.
Dr, Rev, Dom, MD, US, etc.

Robert and Alida lived in the Patroon's house, in Albany and on the Greenbush farm. He battled with Maria Van Cortland, wid of ___ Van Rensselaer, over property right at Rensselaerswyck. House on Pearl St (Albany). IMMIGRANT, 1673.

He had a small shipping business in the Netherlands, before emigrating to America, in Apr 1673. He originally arrived from Rotterdam, via Scotland, at Charlestown, MA, arriving Dec, 1673. He met with the powerful Winthrops, who were connected t his father. He met John Hull, the silversmith, who convinced him of the money to be made in the fur trade. He went to Albany, 1674, where he became ingratiated with Rev Nicholas van Rensselaer. He was Secretary to town of Albany, Secretary to Rensselaerswyck. He became First Lord of the Manor of Livingston, 1686, created by Gov Thomas Dongan, originally 2000 acres (Nov 4, 1684), across the Hudson from the Catskills, through which Roeliff Jansen's Kill flowed. He added two more small parcels, and mysteriously by Jul 22, 1686, when the manor was granted, it had grown to 160,000 acres. He was bur in the church, Albany, Apr 21, 1725; Mayor of Albany 1710-1719. He was descended from William, 4th Lord Livingston of Callendar, Earls of Linlithgow. Appointed secreatry to the first Board of Indian Affairs, then town clerk. Collector of the Excise, at Albany. Speaker, Provincial Assembly, May 27, 1718. Family lands increased to about 1 million acres through purchase and marriage by the end of the second generation.

He was an opponent of Leisler, and a leader of the anti-Leislerians, a prominent force in the Albany Convention, which defied Leisler, and the author of an official Jan 1690 letter denouncing the Leisler regime. After the massacre at Schenectady, Feb 9, 1690, they reluctantly accepted Leisler's troops for protection. He was present at the hanging of Leisler and Milbourne, in MYC, May 16, 1691. Gov Sloughter made him victualer of the garrisons at Albany and NYC.

He was a part owner of a brigantine, which returned in 1694, from a Caribbean voyage with a 500 % return on investment. Gov Fletcher ordered the ship siezed, and the owners charged with violations of the Navigation Act (for trading with the French). The charges were dropped when the Grand Jury refused to indict. The Grand Jury chairman, was Livingston's good friend, Capt William Kidd. He had met the new Governor (1698), Lord Bellomont, while in England and realizing that he sided with the Leislerians, Livingston changed sides and became a member of the Governor's Council, when he returned to NYC, along with Abraham de Peyster, Dr. Samuel Staats and Robert Walters (Nicholas Bayard, and Willett being among those dismissed). House at State and Pearl Sts, Albany. He bought Capt. Kidd's house, on Dock St, in NYC and later gave it to Margaret as a wedding present. He was a personal friend of Capt William Kidd, privateer and later pirate and had introduced him to Lord Bellomont (in England), who recommended him to the King. It was Livingston's plan to send Kidd to the Red Sea, as a Privateer, with Lord Bellomont securing the official documents, and Royal backing. In 1696, Kidd set forth in the "Adventure Galley. Kidd became a pirate, and paid for it with his life (hanged May 23, 1701), but Livingston is said to have profitted immensely (some say that Kidd's treasure was buried on Livingston land. In 1701, he was removed as Collector of the Excise, and threatened with confiscation of all his property, including the Manor, because of the questions over £20,000 expenses. His Leislerian enemies turned on him. he was expelled from the Governor's Council. He was saved by the pleas of his Indian friends, and the death of Lord Bellomont. Lord Cornbury re-instated Livingston and purged the Council of the Leislerians. Cornbury also returned the "Mary" to John and Sam Vetch. He built ships at the mouth of Roeliff Jansen's Kill.

1700, built Manor House, at mouth of Roeliff Jansen's Kill.

In 1710, he worked with Gov Hunter and Queen Anne to settle a large group (ca. 3000) of Palatines in the Hudson Valley (on his land) in order for them to produce naval stores for the British Navy. They were fleeing the effects of the War of Spanish Succession, and the effects of several severe winters in the Palatinate. East Camp and West Camp were set up on each side of the Hudson. Livingston gave back 6000 acres to the Crown, which he claimed contained the right pine trees for making tar. In exchange, he was given the right to provision and supervise the Palatines. The plan was a failure because the immigrants did not have the proper skills and the pine trees were not of the appropriate variety. The Palatines rebelled in the Spring of 1711. The project was a failure. The government subsidization ended in 1712, and the Paltines were left on their own. They eventually moved west into the Mohawk Valley, and some went down to PA.

He went to Quebec to arrange an exchange of prisioners, committed the plans of the fortifications to memory and returned to Boston and committed them to paper for the use of the American Forces.

He was a student of artist Benjamin West in London, but got interested in engineering and studied canal navigation. He worked on submarines and tried to interest the British and French in them. He later turned to steamboats. Chancellor Livingston announced their engagement on board the "Clermont" (originally called the "Hudson River Steamboat"), on its maiden voyage (Aug 1807), just before the boat reached Clermont. One of major inventors of the steamboat (along with John Stevens of Hoboken and Nicholas Roosevelt). Together with Chancellor Livingston, he had a monopoly for steamboat navigation on the Hudson River, until it was ruled unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court. First steam ferry service, NYC to Brooklyn, 1814, with William Cutting. In 1810, Fulton and Chancellor Livingston sent Nicholas Roosevelt to Pittsburgh to survey a route down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers to New Orleans by steamboat, which Roosevelt succeeded in doing. He completed the trip, in 1811, on the "New Orleans", which he built in Pittsburgh. Fulton's third steamboat on the Hudson, "Paragon", built 1811, hit a rock and sank, 1821.

He had patents for a canal dredging machine, a marble sawing device and a flax spinning machine. He interested Napoleon in his submarine and torpedoes. He was commissioned to sink British ships with his submarine "Nautilus", which failed to sink any ships and Napoleon lost interest. His first steamboat, built on the Seine, in 1803, at the request of Robert Livingston, then minister to France, promptly sank.

pages 92:103 Regarding marriage status of Abraham Smith Fulton

(brother of steamboat Robert Fulton):

Abraham Smith Fulton (Robert 1), younger brother of THE

Robert Fulton, born after 1765. Although a genealogy has been

received purporting to be that of a descendant of this man, {10}

no evidence has been found suggesting that Abraham Smith Fulton

ever married or had children...

WARNING! There is another Abraham Fulton with a brother

named Robert living nearby. Abraham & Margaret (Guthrie)

Fulton came to North America ca 1772 and settled at Derry,

Westmoreland Co., PA. They attended the Sewickley Presbyterian

Church and their two sons were Robert, b 1751, and Abraham,

b 1753. Both men served as Rangers of the Frontier ca 1778.

Some researchers have confused deeds and family information

of Abraham, son of Abraham, as referring to Abraham Smith

Fulton, son of tailor Robert Fulton. - Ed.

{10}The Sanner Family in America by Wilmer Mackey Sanner,

unknown publication date, claims that a Margaret S. Fulton, b ca. 1792

was the daughter of Abraham Smith Fulton.

Fulton family group as follows:

1 Abraham FULTON

+ Mary A ------

After 5 years of marriage, he returned to Poland to recover his family estates, as Napoleon had freed Poland. After the Russians pushed Napoleon back, he went to Paris where he spent the next 30 years supporting Polish exiles in their attempts to free Poland. His wife sent him $100/month to support his activities. He claimed to have adopted his step-son, making him a Polish citizen.

[Note: Evelyn Pierrepont and his uncle, Benjamin Waddington, had occupied the brewery and alehouse of the widow, Elizabeth Rutgers during the British occupation of NYC during the American Revolution.

Mrs. Rutgers sued Joshua Waddington as agent for his uncle Benjamin and Evelyn Pierrepont, for damages under the Trespass Act, passed by NYS. She was the aunt of Egbert Benson, NYS Attorney General. Alexander Hamilton represented the US Government which claimed that the Treaty of Parios, which forbade claims against Britain or British subjects, resulting from the war, superceded NYS law. Hamilton won the case and the widow Rutgers lost.

They revised and codified the laws of the NY colony. He was a historian and close Livingston friend, writing of the politics of the Revolutionary Era. He was a member of the NY Triumvirate, with William Livingston and John Morin Scott. He replaced his father, as a member of the King's Council, in 1767. He was the last Chief Justice of NY under the British (appointed by the king, and sworn in May 4, 1780.) He was a reluctant Tory, wanting England to treat her colonists properly, but remaining loyal. He had given Washington the use of his residence, when he entered the city in 1776, while he retreated to his country seat in Haverstraw. He was held under house arrest at Livingston Manor, at The Hermitage, then banished to NYC in 1778. He was present when George Washington met with Sir Guy Carleton, at the DeWint House, in Tappan, NY, in May of 1783, to discuss the withdrawl of the British Forces from NYC. He recorded those events. He went to England, with his son, William, then to Canada, becoming Chief Justice of Quebec and later, Lower Canada (Sep 1, 1785), under Sir Guy Carleton, Governor. His Memoirs have been published. He arrived in Quebec on Oct 23, 1786, and was joined by his wife and children, who had remained in NYC. In 1752, he published Laws of New York from 1691 to 1751, Inclusive. In 1757 he published in London, his History of the Province of New York, from the First Discovery to the Year MDCCXXXII. His youngest brother was Joshua Hett Smith, at whose house in Haverstraw, Rockland Co, NY, now the site of The Helen Hayes Hospital, Benedict Arnold and Major Andre met to discuss the betrayal of West Point. He and another brother also had homes in Haverstraw.

This line covers your BANCKERS except for the familiesof Henry, Edward and James. I cannot connect him. John BANCKER, Jr. appears to be # 12537.5., but I donít see why he is a Jr. I could be that Henry BANKER is from the second, unrelated BANCKER family, from Westchester Co, NY, rather than the Albany family.

I hope this helps you place these families. I can send you my entire BANCKER and BEEKMAN Family files, in Word for Windows 95 (7.0), if you can read them, and think that they might be useful.

Here are some possibilities for Henry BEEKMAN:

13536. Thomas beekman, bp. Aug 15, 1753; d. ca. 1786; m. Sarah Mathews. Gentleman of Ulster County. 2nd Lt, Lasher's Rgt, NY Militia, Jun-Dec 1776. Cornet, 2nd Continental Dragoons, Jan 1777. Lt Oct 1777-1778. [nephew Thomas Beekman].

I would like to find out more about the KANE family. I am trying to find the family of DeLancey KANE. Could C. V. S. KANE be Cornelius Van Schaick KANE?

Your listing came through fine. I have searched for information on the links of these individuals, and have som guesses. I will review the information tonight and try to present it in an intelligible form. I've been out the last two nights to Genealogical meetings, so am behind on my E-Mail responses.

Thanks for the information. This is great.

Dear Bob,

The book review editor at the NEHGS ( just sent me some

additions and corrections, including these, which you might want for your


"Vault 152: There is an account of the Gilbert Robert Livingston and Henry

Beeckman families in The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record 84

(1953): 104-7, 85 (1954): 234-37, 88 (1957): 43-48. The Rev. Gilbert

Livingston Smith was the son of William Mather Smith and Helen Maria

Livingston. Martha Kane and Gilbert Robert Livingston were married 30

September 1779. Dr. James Augustus Washington married Anna White Constable,

daughter of John Constable and Susan Maria Livingston. All the Beekmans

named should be Beeckmans. The still-born child of Mrs. N.B. Graham should

be listed as a child of Mrs. Henry Beeckman (H.B.) Graham.

With all best wishes, Scott C. Steward"

"Yes, I am descended from the Beeckmans (through Gilbert Livingston Beeckman

and Margaret Atherton Foster), and related to Ann Lefferts Mason (she was a

first cousin of my ancestress, Anne Beekman Finlay) and (by marriage) to

Mary Isabella (Young) Steward. (By the way, the Beekmans and Beeckmans were

distinct families; Henry Beeckman was descended from Marten Hendrickse

Beeckman, while his wife was a descendant of Wilhelmus Beekman.) I would be

very interested in the fate of the wall plaques, and would be glad to help

out however I can. Please feel free to send on my Beeckman paragraph to Mr.

Protzmann; is he also a Beeckman descendant?"

So I now have two Beeckman informants, which is great. The other vaults

should be so lucky! Best - Anne


SENT - 6/16/99




Dear Scott,

Thank you for your prompt reply. This does settle things in my mind as to why the Marble Cemetery BEEKMANs were descendants of Marten BEECKMAN, even though they were LIVINGSTON and BEEKMAN (Willem) descendants.

I guess this doesnít settle the question of the proper spelling of the surname, though. I believe that BEECKMAN would be a Dutch spelling while BEEKMAN was probably German. However, many Dutch families in America eventually dropped the "CK" spelling in favor of "K". This happened to my BLANCK family, making it difficult to find modern descendants of Juerian BLANCK, as opposed to many BLANKs known to have come directly from Germany.

I would guess that the best spellings to use in Anne Brownís book would be the spellings used in the records and on cemetery monuments, as they are most likely the spellings used by the families of those individuals.

In discussing the genealogy of these families, the BEECKMAN vs. BEEKMAN origins should be made clear.

Can you give me the line of descent of your Henry BEECKMAN from Marten BEECKMAN. I havenít been able to make the connection from the data I have.

I am attaching a copy of my BEEKMAN Family file, which contains what I have on the Albany BEECKMANs. I use the Modified Henry System of numbering, so that each individualís number shows his ancestry in the line being presented, as well as his birth order in each generation (when known). If you have any questions, please HOLLER! I have added your line from Willemus BEEKMAN and Gilbert LIVINGSTON.

Please note that these are works in progress, and are not meant to be complete. The degree of completeness reflects the amount of time that I have spent and the interest and that I have had in that line.

If you would like copies of my LIVINGSTON and SCHUYLER Files, I can send them too.

Pleased to meet another cousin.

Dear Bob:

I am descended from both the Beeckmans and the Beekmans, since Henry

Beeckman married Catherine McPhaedris Livingston, a descendant of Wilhelmus

Beekman as follows:

Wilhelmus Beekman = Catherina de Boogh

Henry Beekman = Johanna (Lopers) Davidson

Cornelia Beekman = Gilbert Livingston

Robert Gilbert Livingston = Catherine McPhaedris

Gilbert Robert Livingston = Martha Kane [11361.y.]

Catherine McPhaedris Livingston = (2) Henry Beeckman

Gilbert Livingston Beeckman = Margaret Atherton Foster

Margaret Atherton Beeckman = Campbell Steward

Gilbert Livingston Steward = Anne Beekman Ayer (a descendant of Wilhelmus

Beekman's son Gerardus)

Campbell Steward = Barbara Fairfax Glidden Bell

Scott Campbell Steward

If you look in the Record article on the descendants of Gilbert Livingston,

you will find mention of my father (b. 1934), under the entry for the family

of Henry and Catherine McPhaedris (Livingston) Beeckman.

I would be very interested in seeing what information you have. The Beekman

genealogy is rather patchy -- good on some things, not on others. There are

a number of good articles in the Record on various branches.

All best, Scott

Your message to Anne Brown was forwarded to me as I am interested in these

families and have been helping her with some of the genealogy of the

Permanent Residents of NY Marble Cemetery.

It was my feeling that the BEEKMANs and LIVINGSTONs buried there were

probably descendants of Gilbert LIVINGSTON, or close relatives, through

subsequent marriages with BEEKMAN cousins. You have stated that these

BEEKMANs were actually BEECKMANs, descendants of Marten BEECKMAN of Albany.

I do not have enough information on these lines to confirm or deny this from

my records.

If your Gilbert Livingston BEECKMAN is indeed a descendant of the LIVINGSTON

clan, then we are cousins, through Pieter TJERCKS (SCHUYLER), the Dutch

ancestor of the wives of the two immigrant Robert LIVINGSTONs. Can you tell

me more about your connections, and how Gilbert Livingston BEECKMAN fits

into the BEECKMAN and LIVINGSTON families? I am willing to share my

BEEKMAN, LIVINGSTON and SCHUYLER files, and any others of interest.

My data is kept in Word for Windows 95 (7.0) text format, employing the

Modified Henry System of numbering, making it very easy to trace family

relationships within a given line.

I have a copy of the NYG&B RECORD article on the descendants of Gilbert

LIVINGSTON, but do not have any BEEKMAN/BEECKMAN articles.

Are you familiar with the published genealogy on the descendants of Willem

BEEKMAN? I came across a copy in the Huguenot Library in New paltz last

summer, but did not have much time to spend reading it.

Hoping to hear from you soon.
