The children are mostly seen as DeLong, so Jonas probably had changed the spelling of his name at some point. Both DeLong and DeLange are seen.
1. Arie DeLong
Arie’s wife Rachel Ferguson was born 1737 in Fishkill, Dutchess, New York. Her parents were Richard Ferguson and Eleanor Green. Rachel died 9 Jun 1811 in Beekman, Dutchess, New York. Arie and Rachel had ten children.
This Arie was known as Arie B. since his middle name was Blandina, after his mother, and also as Arie Jonas, because of his father’s name.
“He was taxed in Beekman from Feb. 1759 through 1778 with an assessment of four pounds in 1760 and 1763, five pounds in June 1767, six pounds in June 1770 and seven pounds in 1775 and 1778.
He was on [Ancient Documents] … with Farrington Ferguson, probably his brother-in-law, in 1753 as Arie Sr. He and Ferguson owed Hannah Ter Bush, executor of the estate of John Ter Bush, 20 pounds. Arrie DeLong and Elijah Ferguson were witnesses to this bond.
He was very active in the local Beekman givernment and the town meetings were held at his house almost every other year until the mid 1780s. He was a constable and security for the collector in 1750 and in 1752 he was a constable and a collector. He was also appointed to attend May court that year to represent the precinct. The Colonial Legislature passed an act 7 December 1754 requiring that all elections for overseers of the poor in Beekman Precinct were to be held at the house of Arie Jonas DeLong.
His mark was recorded 1751 as a hollow crop on the right ear and his brand was AL. An action was filed against him in the May court 1756 by Lewis Hunt. DeLong was accused of taking a ‘brown cow, one red cow and one red eyed bull.’ Hunt was suing for damages of 20 pounds. … He was one of the men involved in collecting fines from the Quakers for refusal to bear arms ca. 1757. … Arie DeLong kept an active account at the Sleight store in Beekman and his unnamed son and his Negro were on the account from 1767-1771.
Aryn Jonas Langs was noted on a bond list for a 100 acre farm in lot 10 in 1759. There was no acreage listed and he owed no back rent. … He soon after took a lease near the Clove and the following land land records are from the [Edward Livingston Papers]: ‘Arie Jonas DeLong, in the Conveyance … This farm bears date the first day ofd May 1762. The lives therein are said DeLong, Rachel his wife & Charles his son. The yearly rent is 21 bushels, a couple of hens and one day’s riding. The farm contains 267 acres.’ In 1780, when the estate of Margaret Livingston was distributed, this farm was considered ‘good’, was valued at 300 pounds with anb assessment of 1600 pounds and the terms were ‘reneweable forever.’ The farm was ‘in good order.’
1774, Oct. 14. This day canceled the above lease & gave the above named Arie DeLong a new lease for his farm. Lives the same as in the old lease with a clause to put in a new life if the lesee applies within 3 months after the decease of any of the persons above mentioned. … Yearly rent in the new lease 22 bushels of wheat. …’ DeLong paid rents of 22 bushels … June 1787 and 13 bushels 28 Feb. 1788 …
On 14 Dec. 1790 Will Cockburn surveyed a parcel of land for Arie DeLong which was adjacent to his old farm …
“Arie DeLong’s farm was mentioned in a mortgage of 5 June 1794, as was that of Richard DeLong. …
His farm was mentioned in a deed of 22 March 1802 … and in [a mortgage] 9 May 1816.
On 7 Sept. 1771 William Humphrey Esq. of Beekman took a bond from Peter Nostrant, the father of a natural child born to Margaret Dean at the house of Arie DeLong of Beekman. Margaret had sworn on 22 March 1771 that Peter Nostrant, carpenter of Rombout had the carnal knowledge of her body several times, ‘but in particular on or about the middle of August last in the barn of the widow Mary Bush in said precinct and that Norstrant was the only true father of the child.’ Margaret Dean was ordered to pay to the overseers of the poor of Rombout 9 pence per week if she refused to nurse her child. Area De Long and William Humphrey both signed the documents.
In Oct. 1773 a note was entered in the Beekman Precinct records: ‘Then taken up by Arie DeLong a three year old heiffer colored Brindle with ball’d face mark’d with a crop on the right ear.’ … He was an administrator of the estate of Jacob Stover of Beekman … proved 1781. … In January 1781 he filed a complaint against Albert Adriance of Beekman and Joseph Balding of Rombout for failure to pay 80 pounds they had borrowed 1 May 1776. …
He refused to sign the Association but was granted Land Bounty Rights for service in the 5th (Beekman) Regiment of Militia. In October 1776 he was sent to Exeter New Hampshire with other local Loyalists. While in New Hampshire he lodged at widow Clark’s with Michael Vincent of Clapp Hill in Beekman. He evidently spent several months in New Hampshire for we find him at the meeting of the [Committee on Conspiracies] of 27 February 1777:
‘Application having been made to this Board, in behalf of Arie DeLong, one of the disaffected persons sent to New Hampshire, & who is lately returned to this State by permission, & is now at home indisposed, and the Time limited for his return being Expired, Resolved, that Arie Delong be permitted to remain at home during his present indisposition, & that as soon as he shall be able to travel, he appear before this Board.’
He and his brother Johannes were among the Beekman men who signed a petition in behalf of James Essmond who was sentenced to death in 1778. … In Oct. 1786 Abel Hunt sued Arie and Rachel DeLong in the court of Common Pleas.
He was listed in Beekman in 1790 at 4-2-6 and 5 slaves and was between Herman Rozelle and Peter Sickler the 1st.
He wrote his will at Beekman 4 Feb. 1797 and it was proved 28 March 1798. He named his wife Rachel, sons Richard, Charles, Asa, James and heirs of dec’d sons Jonas and John. Also mentioned were daughters Elinor, Dinah and Hannah. Executors were the sons Richard and James, George Losee and Daniel Uhle. Witnesses were Nathaniel Conklin, Abraham and Anne Adriance and Kourt S. Van Voorhis. There was a codicil dated 18 Jan. 1798. …
“Arie DeLong died 20 January 1798, in his 79th year and was bd. in a family ground in an orchard behind the old hotel in Beekmanville. This area was just east of the intersection of Beekman and Green Haven Roads. …” [Doherty, The Settlers of the Beekman Patent, IV, 171-174; X58-X59]

Annetje’s husband Johannes (Hans Jury) Emigh was born 7 Apr 1717 or 30 Nov 1720 in Kingston, Ulster, New York. His parents were Johan Nicholas Emigh b. 1689 in Dannenfels, Nassau, Weiburgschen, Germany and Anna Catherina Mueller b 1693 Staudrum, Germany. The name appears to have originally been Eighme, from Palatine Germany, and is corrupted to Emigh, Emich and Amey. Johannes died 29 Jan 1810 in Half Moon, Saratoga, New York.

5. Johannes DeLong
Johannes’ wife Anna Maria Brill was born May 1737 in Beekman, Dutchess, New York. Her parent were Dewald Brill and Catherine Beck. Anna Maria died in 1804 in Beekman, Dutchess, New York.
Johannes was a lifelong resident of Beekman and was taxed there from Feb. 1759 through 1777 with an assessment of one pound in 1760, two pounds in June 1763, three pounds in June 1767 and June 1770, and five pounds in 1775 and 1778. He signed the Association in Beekman but later refused to lead his company of militia into battle.
He was charged by Catherine DeLong, single woman of Beekman, with having carnal knowledge of her body several times and she was expecting a child. … He was brought before William Humphrey, a Beekman justice, on 20 Aug. 1754, and posted a bond of £30 and his brother Arie posted one of £20. They were both listed as farmers of Beekman. … The Catherine DeLong involved remains unidentified. She was probably a first cousin.
Johannes was a Sleight store customer ca. 1770 and his brother’s son Jonas was on his account. …
Johannes was a Captain in the Colonial Militia and was ordered to assemble his troops by the Continental Congress in September 1775. A report made by Charles Platt noted: ‘Agreeable to the Resolves of Congress, the Committee of this Precinct has waited upon several Captains; Delong, Emaugh and Vincent, who all refused to call their several Companies on the occasion, upon which we gave them Proper Notice by advertising and on the days apppointed waited upon the Several Companies when the following persons were made Choice of Viz. …’ (etc.). Cornelius Van Wyck was appointed Captain in the place of Johannes DeLong, (and was killed just a year later in a skirmish at White Plains …)
John DeLong was paid $8.00 on 2 May 1781 for four days hire of a two horse team at $2.25/day; (eight shillings was deducted for shoeing).
Johannes DeLong was listed in the lease book as having taken over a farm of 226-1/2 acres in lot 22 that the Lane family had farmed for many years. He gave a bond for back rents on 23 May 1783 in the amount of 44 pounds. … The farm was … near the intersection of Dorn and Furnace Roads in present day Town of Beekman. Route 55 is just to the south of the farm.
He was probably the John DeLong who was a witness to the will of Bartholomew Noxon dated 12 Feb. 1784 in Beekman … He was listed in Beekman in 1790 at 2-4-6 and was between John Cornell and George Ralph. In 1799 he was taxed on $3987.50 worth of real property and on personal property valued at $236. In 1800 he was listed at 2-1-1-1-1 and 1-0-1-1-1 and was between Arie DeLong and James Mclees Jr.
His will was written 31 December 1803 and proved 7 Feb. 1804.
‘I Johannes DLong of Beekman town Dutchess County and State of New York being through divine favour of sound memory tho under some infirmity of Body do this thirty first day of the month called December in the year of our lord one thousand eight hundred and three make and publish this my last will and testament in manner and form following.

7. Jannetje DeLong
Some genealogies say that Jannetje was really the daughter of Jonas’ nephew (son of his older brother Frans) Arie Langet b. 1705 in New York City and Annatje Dolson.
I can’t find any direct information about Jannetje’s husband Isaiah Essmond
Jannetje’s brothers Arie and Johannes were among the Beekman men who signed a petition in behalf of James Essmond who was sentenced to death in 1778. Perhaps James was Jannetje and Isaiah’s son.
Children of Isaiah and Jannetje
