      Jooste Jans' early life, aside from his adventures, while yet a small boy, with the Indians in 1663, has not been revealed, but may be assumed to have been pretty much the same as that of other youths, until the time of his engagement to marry was published in the banns of the Reformed Dutch church at Kingston, on the 18th of November, 1682, and which was followed by his marriage announcement in this wise: "Jooste, Jans, J. M. of Meteren, born in Gelderland, residing in Mormer [Marbletown] and Sara du Bois, J. D. of Kingston, residing in the Nieuw-Pals [New Paltz] married in the Pals, 12, December, 1682."

      SARA DU BOIS was the daughter of Louis du Bois and Cathrine Blanchan, his wife. Sara was baptized at Kingston, September 14, 1664. They had issue:
