    • (1) Epperson, Gwenn F., "Another Low Family of New York and New Jersey," New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, vol. 120, pp. 35-43 (January 1989):

      CORNELIUS PETER Low, son of Peter Low and Rachel Roosevelt, was baptized 14 March 1731, sponsors Cornelis Low, senior, and Margrietje Van Bussan [van Borsum], s.h.v. (BDC II:11). Cornelius P. Low, as he was known, married Anna Haley or Hally in the Reformed Dutch Church on the island of St. Eustatius in the Dutch West Indies. An English translation of this parish register entry reads:

      14 Feb. 1757. Married Cornelis Low, bachelor, from New York, age 26, and Anna Halley, widow of Jan Godlieb Frederics, age 34. (G.S. 38,855, Marriages from 1741 to 1764 in Reformed Dutch Church, St. Eustatius. West Indies, Bk. 252, n.p.)

      Anna was born on the island 23 May 1722 and baptized in the Reformed Dutch Church 28 June 1722, "parents Dirik Halij and Catrina Leverok [Leve??rock]" (Ibid., Baptisms 1709-1740, Bk. 247, n.p.). She married first 11 July 1745 Jan Godlieb Frederics, born 9 August 1706 in Stuttgart, Germany (Ibid., Marriages 1741-1764, Bk. 252, n.p.). He died 9 July 1755 and was buried in the Old Church Cemetery (Dutch Church Cemetery), St. Eustatius. This information was taken from a typescript, "Gravestone Inscriptions?St. Eu??statius, N.A., 1686-1930," transcribed by Hester Garrett and Robert Grode, 1976. No baptisms of children were found for this couple.

      By her second husband Cornelius P. Low, Anna gave birth to a daughter, also born on St. Eustatius, and baptized in the same church. The baptismal entry is as follows:

      8 Feb. 1758. Anna, born 16 Mar., daughter of Cornelis P. Low and Anna Halleij, his wife. Godparents: Doctor Pieter Cuvelje and his wife; Oliver Oijen and his wife; Adolphus Roseveldt and Rachel Low. (Ibid., Baptisms 1743-1765, Bk. 248, n.p.)

      A comment in a letter from Henry B. Hoff, F.A.S.G., who so kindly shared information regarding Americans married on St. Eustatius, states:

      Physical presence at a baptism was not required to be a godparent. Although Adolphus Roseveldt probably was on St. Eustatius in 1758, Rachel Low very likely was not.

      Just a note on Saint Eustatius, which is Sint Eustatius in Dutch, and also called Statia. It is a small island in the Dutch Windward Islands of the Nether??lands Antilles, in the Caribbean Sea. Indeed, it may be called a "speck" in the ocean, as it measures only six miles by three miles and has a total land area of eight square miles.

      St. Eustatius was first colonized by the French and English, then changed hands ten times between 1664 and 1674, yet it grew to be a commercial center, despite the absence of a good natural harbor. By 1780 it had become the main focus of the slave trade and of mercantile exchange in the eastern Caribbean and was known as "The Golden Rock." In 1980 the population was estimated at 1,334. (Encyclopedia Britannica, 15th ed., s.v. "Sint Eustatius")

      Why Cornelius P. Low was living on St. Eustatius at the time of his marriage is not entirely clear. However, as Adolphus Roosevelt was his cousin, it seems logical to assume Cornelius and his relatives were engaged in trading with the West Indies.

      Further supporting evidence is the fact that Cornelius P. Low was later re??ferred to as a "merchant of New York City," and members of his family had been merchants for several generations before him.

      If Cornelius P. and Anna were present as sponsors at the baptisms of his niece and nephew in August and September of 1758 (BDC 11:228,229), ap??parently they left the West Indies shortly after the baptism of their daughter Anna in 1758 and returned to New York City.

      Preceding her husband in death, the following notice of Anna appeared in The New York Gazette and the Weekly Mercury of 12 October 1772:

      Mrs. Ann Low, wife of Cornelius P. Low, of NYC, Merchant?died Oct. 4 [1772] in her 51st year and was buried in family vault in New Dutch Church Yard (REC. 102:99).

      A joint will for Cornelius Peter Low and Anna Halij was located in papers of the West India Company filmed at the Rigsarkivet, Copenhagen, Denmark by the Genealogical Society of Utah (G.S. 426,945, Various Civil Letters and Documents of West India Company, 1772 to 1775, Bk. 790, #20).

      It seems obvious the couple had property on both St. Eustatius and the Danish island of St. Croix, which necessitated probate of the will following Anna's death in 1772. The original, written in Dutch, was made on St. Eustatius 9 November 1757, just nine months after their marriage and two months prior to the birth of their only child Anna. It was recorded there 15 May 1765. Later the will was translated twice into Danish and confirmed 8 June 1773 and 30 September 1774 at Christiansted, capital of St. Croix. An abstract of the will follows:

      On 9 November 1757 about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, Cornelis Pieter Louw and Anna Haleij, married people living on St. Eustatius, do make this their last will and testament to dispose of their worldly goods.

      If Cornelis should die without children by this marriage, 1,000 pieces of eight to his mother Rachel Low, living in New York. In case Anna dies first without children from this marriage, 1,000 pieces of eight to her brother Peter Haleij and 1,000 to her sister Sara Halij, wife of Joseph Loe.

      If both die without legal heirs, 30 pieces of eight to the Protestant poor on St. Eustatius.

      To the longest living of the universal heirs all the property. If this couple leaves a child by this marriage, the longest living heir shall be obliged to clothe and support this child; and teach the child to read, write, and learn a trade; until the child reaches twenty-five years of age, or enters into marriage, or any other honorable condition.

      s/Corn. P. Low, Ann Halleij

      Witnesses: Anthony Spruit, William Irvine

      Recorded: 15 May 1765 on St. Eustatius

      A report from William 0. Pederson, Danish researcher of Salt Lake City, Utah, commissioned to research the Low will at the Rigsarkivet, confirms the claim Anna was the only child of Cornelius P. Low by his wife Anna Haley. It says, ". . . the estate of Anna Low who died in New York, referring to the will of 9 November 1757, . . . also mentioned a daughter Anna Low, who at age 15 was in New York" (Christiansted Byfogedarkiv: St. Croix Registrerings??og Vurderingsprotokoller 1773-7, p. 9).

      Continuing his father's business, Cornelius P. Low became a prominent mer??chant in New York City and, like many merchants, he owned a ship to carry on his trade. In the "Journal of the New York Council," on 18 October 1759: "Cornelius Peter Low, of New York, merchant, owner of the brigantine Re??becca, 12 guns, petitions for a commission for Isaac Hardtman as a commander of said brigantine" (CEM 705). According to Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary (1973, p. 138) a brigantine is a "2 masted square-rigged ship differing from a brig in not carrying a square mainsail."

      Perhaps the most interesting and complex feature of Cornelius P. Low's life was his numerous land transactions, one of which provided the necessary link to Capt. Peter Low, the Revolutionary War soldier of New York and New Jersey, proving Cornelius was his father; but more about him later. Apparently Cornelius P. Low speculated in large tracts of land, which lie later used to secure bonds and mortgages to finance his shipping trade. In colonial times this was a high-risk business, depending largely on chance. Sometimes his ventures were profitable. However, at other times, when Cornelius could not repay his loans, the land was seized and sold by sheriffs' sales, as will be shown later.

      On 11 May 1764 Cornelius P. Low of New York City petitioned for a water-lot and leave to build a pier on the East River (Icon. 6:472). Perhaps in the meantime he embarked on another voyage, as he gave his wife Anne Low his Power of Attorney, "to enter into any contract or agreement with the Corporation of the City of New York concerning granting of the water Lot, which I have lately petitioned for." The Power of Attorney was recorded 18 June 1767 (G.S. 888,344, New York County Deeds 38:3).

      On 11 December 1766 Cornelius P. Low of the City of New York, mer??chant, and Anne his wife sold to Robert Murray of the same city, merchant, for ??1,600 two lots situated in the East Ward. They also sold a lot lying under water in the East River, which was docked out and built upon by Robert Murray. This land had been granted to Cornelius P. Low by the Mayor, Al??dermen and Commonalty of the City of New York by indenture dated 28 Oc??tober 1765 (Ibid. 39:220).

      Then on 29 June 1771 Cornelius P. Low bought two tracts of land from Augustine Provoost (G.S. 463,352, Albany County Mortgages 3:321), who held a Power of Attorney to act on behalf of George Croghan, Esquire, Deputy Superintendent of Indian Affairs for the Northern District of North America (G.S. 463,350, Albany County Deeds 9:117). Croghan was also Provoost's father-in-law. One tract was then in Albany County, on the south side of the Mohawk River and the north side of Otsego Lake, containing 5,061 acres. It was part of a patent for 100,000 acres granted George Croghan and ninety-nine other men on 30 November 1769 (G.S. 945,299, Land Patents of New York 14:466). This patent now covers parts of the towns of Otsego, Burlington and New Lisbon in Otsego County.

      On 17 June 1788 this land was made subject to a sheriff's sale for default on a mortgage

      . . . by virtue of a writ . . . issued out of the Supreme Court of Judicature for the State of New York . . . in favour of Cornelius Glen and Barent Bleecker . . . for two hundred and ninety-five pounds six shillings and four pence against the Goods & Chattels Lands and Tenements of the said Cornelius P. Low in the district of Old England County of Mont??gomery and State of New York and exposed to sale for the Sum of three hundred and ten pounds unto Henry Kip and Henry H. Kip being the highest sum that was bid for the same (G.S. 506,494, Montgomery County Deeds 3:60).

      The sheriff's sale could have marked the end of this land transaction, as far as the Low family was concerned. However, it just so happened that Henry Kip's wife was the former Helena Low, sister of Cornelius P. Low. On 20 Oc??tober 1790 Helena Kip, widow and sole devisee of Henry Kip, deceased, and Henry H. Kip (probably a son) sold the land to Richard Cary and Ann his wife of New York City, son-in-law and daughter of "Cornelius P. Low, late of the Town of Greenburgh in the County of Westchester," for ??425, but with a stipulation that the property was to be held

      . . . in trust nevertheless to and for the only proper use of the heirs of him the said Richard Cary party hereto on the body of her the said Ann the wife of the said Richard Cary for??ever whether the same are already begotten or to be begotten (G.S. 1,023,764, Otsego County Deeds A:79).

      Further conditions stated that the Carys were to sell a 300-acre farm on the property to Edward Thursten of Stonington, Connecticut and to let out on leases renewable from time to time or sell up to 3,000 acres including the farm. They were also to retain for themselves the consideration money of ??425 plus interest and all costs and charges. The overplus money, if any, was to be held in trust for their heirs. Thus this land in Otsego County stayed known as "Low's tract." However, over the succeeding years the 5,061 acres were sold off to various persons in smaller parcels.

      The other tract in Otsego County, formerly owned by the Low family, was smaller. It contained 1,045 acres of 18,000 acres in what was first called the "Township of Belvidere." This "township" was established by the original patent issued to George Croghan on 29 June 1770 (G.S. 945,299, Land Patents of New York 15:254). However, the township no longer exists and the original patent now falls largely within the Towns of Cherry Valley and Roseboom.

      The book Lists of Patents of Lands, & C. To Be Sold in January, 1822 for Arrears of Quit Rent (F. E. Brownell, ed., Albany: E. and E. Hosford, 1937) gives this description of the property (p. 7):

      This patent is called Belvidere, and the greatest part of it is in Otsego Co.; the residue is in Schoharie. It is divided into 2 tracts of 9,000 a. each, each of which is subdivided into 9 lots of 1,000 a. each.

      With the help of a patent map, supplied by the Otsego County Real Prop??erty Tax Office, and various deeds found in Albany, Tryon, Montgomery and Otsego counties (the four jurisdictions through which this land has passed), the most correct location for the Low property seems to be lot No. 1 in the "Second Township of Belvidere," currently in the Town of Roseboom.

      Sometime between the date of Croghan's patent and the following deed of this land to his son Peter, Cornelius P. Low purchased the above stated tract containing 1,045 acres, although his deed of purchase has not been located. It is possible the deed is still in possession of the family and was not recorded. This "deed of gift" to his son Peter was signed "Cornl. P. Low" and witnessed by William and "Rebeck" Angel. It was recorded 20 February 1807 and begins as follows (G.S. 1,023,767, Otsego County Deeds H:260):

      This indenture made the twenty-eighth Day of April, one thousand seven hundred and eighty four between Cornelius P. Low of the County of Somerset and State of New Jersey of the one part and Peter Low of Bedminister in the County and State aforesaid only son of the said Cornelius P. Low of the other part . . . for and in Consideration of the Natural love and affection, which he the said Cornelius P. Low hath and beareth to the said Peter Low, as also for the better maintenance and Support, livelyhood and preferment for him the said Peter Low. . . .

      This deed is another good example of the valuable genealogical information which can be obtained by researching land records. At times they may pro??duce the only evidence by which a line can be proved. This is especially true of "deeds of gift," such as the one above, which precede or supersede a pro??bate, explaining why a will was not necessary, or an heir was omitted.

      Since family records give the birthdate of the Peter Low who owned the land in Cherry Valley as 4 January 1750; and the marriage date of Cornelius P. Low, "bachelor," to Anna Haley on St. Eustatius was 14 February 1757, some seven years later; a discrepancy occurs which requires consideration.

      Perhaps Peter was informally adopted by Cornelius P. Low, because he had no male heirs by his wife Anna Haley. Many times orphan children were taken in by members of the family and treated like their own without going through formal adoption proceedings.

      In fact, just such a thing may have happened in this case. Margrieta Low, Cornelius P. Low's sister, married her first cousin Cornelis Low, son of Jo??hannes Low and Sara Provost (MDC 177). They had five children, one of whom was Petrus Low, baptized 17 October 1750 (BDC II:162), close enough to the birth of the Peter in question. Sometime between 2 February 1764, when Margrita Louw sponsored a baptism as wife of Corns. Louw (BDC 11:271), and when he was mentioned as deceased in his father Johannes's will in 1774 (WNYHS 9:256), Cornelis died intestate at a relatively young age. Nothing further has been found regarding his children. Could Peter Low have been informally adopted by Cornelius P. Low to take the place of the son he never sired?

      Another scenario may also be written for the mystery surrounding Peter Low's parentage. Just because Cornelius P. Low claimed he was a "bachelor" in 1757 does not make it true. Perhaps he was married at age eighteen without pa??rental consent (twenty-one being legal age). Therefore, his father may have had the marriage dissolved and sent Cornelius to a plantation on St. Eustatius to forget the matter. There Cornelius met and married the widow Anna Haley who was nine years his senior. However, this was a mutually profitable union, since it joined two well-to-do families with many interests in common, the Haleys who were planters and the Lows merchants.

      Before returning to New York City in 1750, the paternal grandparents of Peter, the child of Cornelis P. Low's first union, may have turned him over to foster parents in New Jersey to learn farming. In fact this incident may have precipitated their move. This would also account for Peter's becoming a farmer instead of a merchant like most members of the Low family.

      Of course, the possibility still exists that Peter was an illegitimate son of Cor??nelius P. Low. Unless further information comes to light, it will be impossible to say which if any of these solutions is correct. It is hoped this article will speed a break-through. Anyone having well-documented evidence is invited to con??tact the author.

      Cornelius P. Low did not confine his land purchases to New York and New Jersey. On 18 February 1775 he bought 3,000 acres in Meath township, now in the Town of Fairfield, Franklin County, Vermont, from Josiah Willard of Winchester, New Hampshire for ??162 (G.S. 945,276, [Secretary of State] Deeds of N.Y. 20:50). However, there is no record of a resale. The land was in an uninhabited wilderness fifteen miles from the border with Quebec, Canada, the first white settlers not arriving until 1787. Doane has this to say concerning the history of Fairfield (Gilbert Harry Doane, ed., Some Early Records of Fair??field, Vermont, Burlington 1938, p. 3):

      We do not know when a white man first looked over the wooded valley, cast of St. Albans Hill, which was to become the fertile fields and pastures of Fairfield. But it was probably sometime in the eighteenth century, when the French from Quebec used to pass back and forth through the territory now known as Vermont to their outposts on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain. We do know from records in the New York Archives in Albany that surveyors were in this part of Vermont in 1772 and 1774 to survey lands granted by the Governor of New York to Lord Townshend, Josiah Willard, Capt. Henry Gordon, Luke Knowlton and others.

      Where Cornelius P. Low waited out the Revolutionary War is not clear. On 1 May 1775 he was chosen as one of the two men representing New York City on the Committee of One Hundred. This was a body of Freemen and Freeholders which met 22 May 1775 and formed a provincial council to con??sider their growing problems with Great Britain (Refug. 1049).

      Nothing further was located concerning Cornelius P. Low during the war years. However, this is understandable, as New York City was held by the British from 16 September 1776 until 26 November 1783, and New Jersey was almost constantly under siege throughout the entire war. His son Capt. Peter Low volunteered for service from Bridgewater Township on 23 June 1775, and Cornelius owned property in Millstone Township, both townships being in Somerset County but at almost opposite ends.

      After the war, on 14 May 1785, "Cornelius P. Low of Millstone . . Gen??tleman," sold to Peter Van Doren of the same place, yeoman, for ??1,430, 520 acres of land situated on the east side of Millstone River in the County of Som??erset. This deed was signed "Corns. P. Low" and witnessed by Garret Vorhees and Benjamin Stover. It was recorded 4 December 1798; however, his deed of purchase was evidently either not recorded or was among records destroyed in the war (G.S. 903,788, Somerset County Deeds B:68).

      Unfortunately, the one source which could have answered the question con??cerning Cornelius P. Low's residence during the Revolutionary War, a "census" compiled from New Jersey tax ratables covering this time period, includes three townships whose lists do not begin until 1784. On one of these appears the name of Cornelius P. Low, in Somerset County, Eastern Precinct, 1785-86 (Kenn Stryker-Rodda, Revolutionary Census of New Jersey [Cottonport, La.: Poly??anthos, Inc., 1972], List 111:6).

      Following the war the property of loyalists was confiscated and sold by the Commissioners of Forfeitures, and Cornelius did not pass up this opportunity to obtain some of the best, most prestigious real estate in New York. On 9 September 1785:

      No. 74. Sold to Cornelius P. Low of the City of New York, Gentleman: all that certain Mansion House, Mills, Stables & Farm or Parcel of Land in the Manor of Phillipsburgh . . . known and distinguished heretofore as the place of residence of the late Frederick Philipse, Esquire . . . (REC. 60:170).

      This purchase contained 320 acres, reserving out six acres for various pur??poses; also two lots of woodland, No. 12 and 13, containing 33 acres each. The land was located in Westchester County. Says Harry F. Yoshpe in Dispo??sition of Loyalist Estates in Southern New York (New York: Columbia University Press, 1939), p. 73:

      . . . Cornelius P. Low never occupied the manor house and farm for which he had paid ??14,520. On 12 May 1786 he mortgaged the property to William Constable, leading mer??chant of New York. The latter by indenture bearing the date of 29 April 1796, sold to Jacob Stout, "Gentleman" of New York City, for ??13,000 the manor house, mills, stables and three hundred and twenty acre farm which Low had mortgaged.

      Ernest Freeland Griffin further adds this bitsof history in his Westchester County and Its People?A Record (New York: Lewis Historical Publishing Co., 1946), 1:216:

      Phillipse Manor Hall on the Nepperhaen is located at Warburton Avenue and Dock Street, Yonkers. The Nepperhaen has disappeared under the city's pavements where it runs con??cealed in a conduit. The building was sold successively to Cornelius P. Low, William Con??stable, Jacob Stout . . . [etc.]. It was sold in 1868 to the City of Yonkers for a City Hall. It was used for that purpose until 1908. . . . In 1908 the house was purchased by the State of New York, through the generosity of Mrs. William F. Cochran; and the American Scenic and Historic Preservation Society became its custodian.

      Cornelius P. Low of the City of New York, Esquire, made his will there on 17 December 1790. Since he had already provided for his son Capt. Peter Low through a "deed of gift," consisting of 1,045 acres in Otsego County, Cornelius did not mention him in his will. Instead he left the bulk of his estate to his daughter Ann, who had married c.1778 Lt. Col. Richard Cary or Carey of Charlestown, Massachusetts, appointed aide-de-camp to Gen. George Washington on 21 June 1776 (John C. Fitzpatrick, ed., The Writings of George Washington from the Original Manuscript Sources, 1745-1799 [Washington: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1913], 5:164-5).

      This portion of Cornelius P. Low's will provides some interesting insights into his character:

      I grant her [Ann] full power to make her last will, notwithstanding being under a cover??ture; if she die without making a will, my estate to go to her children, under the laws of New York State, on condition that they take the name of Low instead of Cary. (WNYHS 14:188)

      During colonial times a married woman could not own real property or make a will. She was considered to be under "coverture" to her husband. A Treatise on the Law of Wills by John R. Rood (Chicago: Callaghan & Co., 1926) has this to say (p. 108):

      By the common law the marriage operated as an absolute gift by the wife to her husband of all her chattels then possessed or afterwards acquired and which the husband should re??duce to his possession during coverture; and he might dispose of her chattels real, and had them to himself if he survived her without disposing of them; which was inconsistent with her power to bequeath them to another.

      Whether a father could legally grant his married daughter these rights is not known. However, the conditions of Cornelius P. Low's will indicate he did not favor his son-in-law and felt constrained to protect the interests of his daughter and grandchildren, as did his sister Helena Kip, when she deeded land to the Carys in trust for their children in 1790. A paragraph from The History of Springfield, New York by Kate M. Gray (Cooperstown, 1935) seems to support this supposition (p. 162):

      In later years Colonel [Lt. Col.] Cary met with financial reverses and was "put on the limits" as the penalty of unpaid debts, being an exile from his home in Springfield and ob??liged to remain within the bounds of Cooperstown.

      As it turned out, her father's concern was unnecessary, as Ann Low Cary outlived her husband by twenty-four years and made a will dated 10 July 1827 which was probated 20 October 1845 in Otsego County (G.S. 947,168, Otsego County Wills 7:204).

      As executors to his will Cornelius P. Low named William Patterson, Esq., a United States Senator; Cornelius C. Roosevelt; Cornelius Low, son of his brother Peter; and Samuel Low, son of his brother John. Witnesses were John Abeel, Andrew Bostwick, and Justus B. Smith.

      Cornelius died 3 January 1791 and was buried next to his wife Ann Haley or Hally in the family vault in the New Dutch Church yard (DDC 176). His will was probated 29 July 1791 in New York. On 2 August 1791, the executors having refused to serve, the Court appointed Ann Cary, late Ann Low, of New York City, daughter of the testator, to administer the estate (WNYHS 14:188).
