      Neeltje (Eleanor) Briese; wife of Adam Douw Fonda; also referred to as "Lavina"; born 18-Mar-1738, died 15-Dec-1820 at 82 years of age; bur. Old Caughnawaga Cemetery, Fonda, New York; Neeltje is the g-g-granddaughter of the infamous Anneke Jans (1605-1663), who emigrated to New Amsterdam with her 1st husband, Roelof Janszen, on the ship "de Eendtacht" (The Unity) in 1630. Anneke was allegedly the granddaughter of William the Silent - (William I, Prince of Orange, 1533-1584 the father of the Dutch Republic). Both Anneke and Roelof were Norwegians by birth, but may have been of Dutch ancestry. They remained in New Amsterdam for a short time and then moved to Rensselaerwyck, on the Hudson, where Jan served as a farm superintendent for the wealthy Killian Van Rensselaer, a Director of the West Indies Company. In 1634, they moved back to New Amsterdam where Jan received a grant of 62 acres of land on the North (or Hudson) River, which is now Manhattan Island. After Janís death in 1637, Anneke married the Domine Everardus Bogardus (the Latinized form of Bogaert) in 1638. Bogardus died in 1647 and in 1657, Anneke moved to Beverwyck (Albany), New York She died in 1663 and is buried in the Middle Dutch Church Yard on Beaver Street, Albany, New York Harperís Magazine in May 1885 had a very full and interesting account of Anneke Jans
