Jan Johannes DeLong

Jan Johannes DeLONG (1690- 1763) was Alex’s 8th Grandfather; one of 512 in this generation of the Shaw line.

Jan Johannes DeLong was born in 1690 Rochester, Ulster, New York. His parents were were Adrianus DeLANGE and Rachel Jansen PEER.  He married Anna Magdalena WEISER 29 Sep 1712 Kingston, New York.  Jan died 1763 in Greene, NY.

Anna Magdalena Weiser was born in 1692 in Großaspach, Bocknang, Württemberg, Germany.  Some records say she was born 1696 in Hoog-Duytlsand Germany.  Hoog dytsland, or “hoog duitsland,” is not a specific place.  It was the Dutch pastor’s rendering of “Hoch Deutschland,” or High Germany (as contrasted with the “Low Germany” of the North Sea coastal regions. Her parents were Johann Conrad WEISER and Anna UEBELE.  Anna died 1760 in Rochester, Ulster, New York.

One Jacbous DeLong cousin baptized in 1720/21 died as an infant and the other lived to have a family.  Genealogists are divided about which is which so I’ll show it both ways.

1. Jacobus DeLange was baptized 6 Aug 1721 in Kingston, NY.  His sponsors were Henrik Bras and Geertruy Paarsen, probably maternal relatives..  His parents were Jonas DeLONG and Blanda (Blandina) PEERSON.

2. Jacobus DeLange was baptized 12 Oct 1720 in Poughkeepsie, NY.  His sponsors were Jacobus  Van Den Boogaard and Grietjen de Mon.  His parents were Jan Johannes DeLONG and Anna Magdalena WEISER.
