      (2) The compiler has not found a record of Matheus' baptism. Matheus was born sometime during the approximately six-year period between the birth of his brother Johannes (about September 30, 1688) and the birth of his brother Arie (about June 8, 1694).

      Mattheus Van Kuykendael (2), was born about 1690, the sixth in the family of Leur Jacobsen Van Kuykendaal. His name does not appear on the baptimal registers of the Dutch Reformed Church. His birth came between that of Johannes, baptized 1688, and Arie baptized 1694. Genealogists who have given attention to the matter, have generally placed his birth at 1690. His marriage record as found in the Dutch records reads:

      "1715 March 27.

      "Mattheus Van Kuykendael, j. m. born in Raycester (Rochester) and Jannetjen Westphael j. d., born in Kingston and both residing in Menising (Minisink), banns registered 13 March."

      Their children were baptized either in Kingston or at Accord, which was near by, except Peter, who was baptized at Deerpark. Our fathers seem to have preferred to go to the more distant church, for the baptism of their children, rather than to the newer and smaller churches in the Minisink region, perhaps because the older ones of the family had spent their youth there, or because they had to make trips to Kingston and Rochester (now Accord) every year anyhow. The baptism of children was made a much more formal proceeding those days, and much more importance was attached to it as a ceremony. The names of the children of Mattheus are here given.

      SYMEN, baptized June 24, 1716; PETER, baptized Jan. 28, 1719 at Deerpark, N. Y.
      JACOBUS, baptized Oct. 22, 1721, at Kingston, N. Y.

      ELIZABETH, baptized Jan. 16, 1726, at Raycester (now Accord), N. Y.

      ELIZABETH, baptized Oct. 6, 1728, at Kingston.

      Mattheus was a farmer, and his land was adjacent to the plat of the hamlet of Minisink, lying on the Jersey side of the river Delaware, while the land of his brother Jacob joined the village plat below. Probably Matthew's brother Jacob had by this time mostly given up the hardships and exposures of Indian trading, which he had earlier followed. He was now about forty-three years old and had quite a large family. The last baptism in Matthew's family before they left the Delaware valley, was that of his daughter Elizabeth, baptized, as seen above, October 6, 1728; his brother Jacob's son, Nathaniel, was baptized the same day and same place. The next notice we have of Matthew is in Virginia.
