Cornelius BRINK (1730 – 1793) was Alex’s 7th Grandfather; one of 256 in this generation of the Shaw line.
Cornelius Brink was born 25 Jan 1730 in Kingston, NY. His parents were Jacob BRINK and Annetje POST. He married Annetje Jannetje WINNE 17 Mar 1751 in Kingston, NY. Cornelius died 7 Sep 1793 in Plattekill or Marlborough, NY.
Annetje Jannetje Winne was born Sep 1733 in Kingston, NY. Her parents were Pieter WINNE and Antje MERKEL. Annetje died in Saugerties, NY.
The village land of “Saugerties” was obtained from Esopus Indian Kaelcop, chief of the Amorgarickakan Family. Governor Andros purchased the land on April 27, 1677, for the price of a piece of cloth, a blanket, some coarse fiber, a loaf of bread, and a shirt. The village was incorporated in 1831 as “Ulster,” but it changed its name to “Saugerties” in 1855. In 1710, during the Palatine immigration, over 3,000 German Palatines were sent here by the English Crown to manufacture naval stores, tar, and turpentine.
In 1730, a subdivision of the town called “Katsbaan” was established. The Palatine settlers and Dutch settlers built a stone church in Katsbaan in 1732.
13 Children of Cornelius and Annetje: baptized at the Katsbaan Church, and one at Kingston, for a total of 14 children.

Egbert Brink was one of the assistant trustees of the town of Marbletown in 1738 and his name appears as one of those who organized the Reformed Dutch Church of Marbletown in 1743. He lived to be one of the signers of the Articles of Association of the patriotic citizens of Ulster county on the 9th of Jyne, 1775. Preceding his residence in Marbletown he lived in the town of Hurley where he served as one of the 146 trustees of that town in 1727. He was an elder in the Marbletown church in 1747.
However, today’s sources say that Cornelius and Marretje’s son Jacob (1764-1843) married Elizabeth DuBois (1766 – 1847)

Mareitje’s godparents were Jacob Brink, Marretje Brink.
Some sources say that the Marretje Brink that married Johannes Wolfen was born Sep 1753 Kingston, Ulster, New York, not 3 Oct 1761.

Two William Brinks married in the early 1800’s in the Kingstone RDC. One married Harriet Post 25 Jan 1801 and the other married Maria France 20 Apr 1806. Since Harriett was living with her sons James and Cornelius in the 1850 census, it seems to me that these were two different men. Some genealogies have one wife and others have the other, I haven’t seen proof one way or the other. I would guess their ten children are a combination of the two marriages. Any input is appreciated.
