I am working on this line of Bont/Bunt/Bunte/Bunce/Bunch/Buntje/Buntz/Bunts, etc. It is quite an undertaking. Do you have anything new? I`ve found some interesting information in The History of Greene County New York by J.B. Beers and Company 1884. And am working to sort it out. I`d love to compare information and get your feedback.
Of particular interest in this section of the book; The Conradt Aaron Flaack Estate part of which is in the village of Athens. Conradt born 6 Sep 1713 died 4 May 1789, aged 76 yrs and 4 months, ran a ferry across the Hudson River. He was burried in the Eoiscopal Church buring ground. In his will recorded in surrogate`s office in Albany, he left his estate to his daughter Lucretia and son Hermanus. In 1796 his estate was divided among his heirs.
Conradt Flaack`s estate consisted of Lot 126, purchased of Petrus Van Loon, deed dated 1 July 1761 and a one-eighth share of undivided lands bought of John Van Loon, deed dated 7 Oct 1757. The whole contained 23 5-7 acres.
At the time of the division of the estate, the daughter Lucretia, who had married Casper Clough (or could be Claw, etc.), and the son Hermanus Flaack were both dead, and their shares were divided among their children, as follows: children of Lucretia Clough; Cathrine, Abraham, John, Annaatje (wife of Hermanus Bont), Leah (wife of John G Van Hoesen), Lucretia (wife of Albert Van Hoesen) and Richard; the children of Hermanus Flaack were Richard, Annaatje (wife of William Dow) and Conradt.
Annaatje (daughter of Lucretia nee Flaack Clough or Claw, etc.), wife of Hermanus Bont (could be Bunt, etc.) being dead, her share went to her children; Richard, Jacob, Conradt, Jane, Hermanus and Catherine.
I believe these may be the Bunts siblings that we are researching. They have the right names but do the dates coincide? I`d love some input!!
Thank you for all the research you have done the the family thus far!
Sincerely, Valerie nee Bunts Olsen
