      ARIE (2), comes next in the family of Luur Jacobsen Van Kuykendael. He was baptized in Kingston, N. Y., June 8, 1694. He grew to manhood in the Minisink region, but we have very little account of him, and the family, after the fall of 1735, when his daughter Margrita was baptized at Kingston. Arie married Margritje Quick, the daughter of Thomas Quick, Sr., who located in very early times, on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware river, near the present site of Milford, where he built a mill and residence. While he was living there, the Indians made a raid upon the settlers, and found the old gentleman and two of his sons out some distance from the house. They made an attempt to escape, but the old man, being rather fleshy and heavy, the Indians rapidly gained upon them, and it soon became evident that they were to be overtaken. He told the boys to leave him to his fate, saying that if they stayed to help him, all would be killed. Finding the Indians about upon them, they heeded the urging of their father and fled. The Indians killed the old man, cut off his head and rolled it about over the ground, kicking it about in a most shameful manner. This inhuman treatment so shocked and horrified Thomas, Jr., that he ever afterward had an inveterate hatred toward all Indians, and vowed vengeance upon the whole race, and killed an Indian at every opportunity.

      He finally succeeded in killing the murderer of his father. When old and upon his death bed, he expressed regret that he had not been able to kill an even hundred Indians in his life time. It was said he had killed over ninety.

      The earliest settlers of Minisink, of which we have any record, located there as early as 1694, and yet seventy-five or eighty years later, during the Revolutionary war, the country was still regarded and called "the frontier," and it is so mentioned in the reports of military operations in that country.

      The Kuykendalls who were in that war and applied for pensions, all speak of their services as "guarding the frontier," or "spying and ranging on the frontier."

      One cannot but notice how slowly the frontier moved westward during the earlier days of the settlement of the country. After settlements had become somewhat dense in Kentucky, Tennessee. Indiana, and Texas, where many of the Kuykendalls settled, the advance of civilization westward was much more rapid, and inside of seventy years, the populous cities of Omaha, Denver, Seattle and Portland had started. In the very early colonial days the struggle between civilization and wild beasts and Indians was often evenly balanced. Brawn and physical force was with the savages, but brain power, which conquors worlds and makes civilization, was with our forefathers.

      The children of Arie Van Kuykendall and Margrita Quick were:

      CLARA, baptized Feb. 25, 1722;

      ANNAATJE, Feb. 16, 1724:

      JOHANNES, July 31, 1726;

      MARGRITA, baptized Sept. 7, 1735.

      All of these children were baptized at Kingston, N. Y.

      No living Kuykendall, so far as known, has been found today who traces his ancestry back to Arie. It was but a short time after the baptism of Arie's daughter, Margrita, that the Kuykendalls began to migrate to Virginia, and inasmuch as he had no other children baptized in the old home country, we might reasonably infer that the Arie family went to Virginia along with some of the others. It is altogether probable that if he remained at his home on the Delaware, he would have had other children born there and a record of their baptism would have been found. He was only forty-one years old at the time of Margrita's baptism. As to the subsequent history of Arie we are wholly in the dark. The name Arie does not seem to have been carried down, or at least not in that form. The name Ira Kuykendall appears among the Ks that lived in Eastern Pennsylvania, whose ancestors lived on the Delaware.
