    Notes 
    • (1) Hull, Robert W., Thomas Theunissen Quick and Rymerick Jurians Westfall of Ulster County, in The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol. 139 (2008), pp. 27-31:

      There is genealogical information of long standing in print on the Westfall and Quick families, but the published families are not entirely correct or complete, particularly concerning women. This article presents corrections, several based on land records.

      • A 1902 article in the RECORD about Jurian Westfall named six of his children, five of whom had baptisms at Kingston, Ulster County. It carries forward only the additional child, daughter Rymerick, who married Thomas Theunisse Quick, apparently because it is her name, given in both patronymic and surname forms in the baptisms of some of their children, that establishes her as Jurian's daughter. Eight of the nine Quick children have baptismal records at Kingston. The additional child, Antje, married Hendrick Decker, which is supported by their marriage and the baptisms of five children at Kingston. The article does not include a tenth child, Beletje Quick (named for her grandmother, Beletje Jacobs, mother of Thomas Theunisse Quick), who had two illegitimate children baptized at Kingston.

      • A footnote in Gustave Anjou's 1902 Ulster County Probate Records states that Antje Quick died before her husband Hendrick Decker, and that Hendrick married two more times and had additional children. Instead, as shown below, she was called a widow in 1718 and was still living in 1746, about forty years after Hendrick's death, when she joined the church at Machackemeck (Deer Park) in Orange County.

      • The 1942 Quick Genealogy states that Thomas Theunisse Quick (Theunis) died before 11 October 1698 [he died before 8 June 1696] and that Rymerig was living as late as 9 November 1716 [she was still alive 10 May 1718]. It, too, omits Beletje and assigns her illegitimate children to Elletje [ignoring the illegitimacy and stating that Elletje married a Quick, but omitting Elletje's one illegitimate child, her marriage, and her one legitimate child]. The genealogy repeats Anjou's errors concerning the deaths of Antje Quick and Hendrick Decker.

      • David Riker's 1998 Genealogical and Biographical Directory to Persons in New Netherland omits Rymeric as a child of Juriaen Westfall, but correctly lists Rymerick, daughter of Jurriaen Westvall, as the wife of Thomas Quick. It, too, omits Beletje and repeats Anjou's errors.

      DOCUMENTS

      Members of the Westfall and Quick families appear in records in New York and New Jersey, including land records related to an area that was in dispute between the two, but was ultimately determined to be in New Jersey.

      • January 1696. Johannes Westphalen, Thomas Quick, Teunis Quick, Class Westphalen, Simeon Westphalen, Hendrick Decker, and Dirck Van de bergh and others received a patent to purchase land in Minnisink Country.

      • 8 June 1696. "Dirk vanderburgh . . . Johannis Westphalen Claes Westphalen Svmon Westphalen the widdow of Thomas Quick Teunis Quick," among others, purchased land "in Menising [Minisink] and Maggakemock [Machackemeck]" from a group of Indians.

      • 28 7ber [September] 1700. Several "Natives Indians" sold land "named by the natives Megaskotanie, otherwise commonly called or known by the name of Kansjoor" to "Rymerigh Quick of Munbackis in ye County of Ulster wideow."

      • 29 May 1701. "Rymerigh Quick of Monbackis in the county of Ulster widdow of Thomas Quick deceased Teunis Quick of Neepenagh in said County husbondmen and Jurian Quick of Monabackus aforesd husbondmen . . . whereas the sd Rymerigh Quick together with the sd Teunis Quick and Jurrian Quick children of sd Thomas Quick deceased lawfully begotten on and by the body of sd Rymerigh Quick" joined in selling land in Monbackis along Rondour Kreek to Barent van Benthuysen of Kingstowne. All three signed by mark.

      • 18 April 1713. Johannes Westphalia, Claus Westphalia, Simon Westphalia, Tunis Quick, Remora Quick, and Cornelius Dutcher purchased from Thomas Stevenson 2000 acres in the Western Division of the province of Nova Caesaria New Jersey]. At one point in the deed, it says "Tunis & Remora his Mother."

      • 8 July 1717. Jan Jansen Decker of the Western Division of New Jersey confirmed to Antje Decker, widow of Hendrick Jansen Decker, 400 acres in New Jersey, Western Davison, along the Delaware River, near Maghackemeck Creek. He confirmed "unto the heirs of said Hendrick Jansen Decker by name Thomas Decker Johannis Decker Geertie Decker Femmetie Decker Grietie Decker & Sara Decker." The land, "known by the Indian name of Magachkemeck," had been purchased by Jan Jansen Decker in 20 June 1713.

      • 10 May 1718. Indenture between "Rymerigh Quick of Rochester in the county of Ulster & Province of New York in America widdow Jurian Quick & Rebecca his wife of the same place Johannis Quick and Breghje his wife of Orange County Antje Decker of the same place widdow Beeltje Quick of Rochester aforesd Hilletje Quick of the same place Nicolas Schoonhoven & Wyntje his wife of the same place" sold to Phillip Dubois of the New Paltz in Ulster County 125 acres on the north side of Rondout Creek, known by the name of Mombackhouse, excepting the burying place of the meeting house of Rochester, the ground belonging to the saw mill, and ground sold to Dirck Westbroeck. All parties, including spouses, signed by mark. Eldest son Teunis and youngest daughter Geertje did not participate in this deed, suggesting both were deceased at the time.

      • 18 September 1746, Machackemeck. These in presence of Jacob Westfael, respected elder of Machackemech, upon sufficient confession of faith and live, were received as members of our Reformed Low Dutch Church: Thomas Decker and his wife Jenneke van Nimwegen; Jacobus Rosenkranz, Antje Quick, Beeletje Quick, Maria Koddebeck.

      These land records, in conjunction with a examination of the church records of Kingston and Machackemeck (Deerpark), Orange County, especially in relation to Beletje, Elletje/Hilletje, and their illegitimate children, create a more complete genealogy.
