Biographical Record of Dutchess County, NY published by J.H. Beers and Co. of Chicago 1887.

From Worden's Machackemack (Deerpark), Orange Co., NY RDC Records, page 192:

The name Vliet appears among the ancient nobility of Holland, who had their surnames nearly all from a village, house or tract of land owned by them or their forefathers, and before each surname placed the little word, "van". The meaning of Vliet is stream or river, Van Vliet - of the stream of river.

Utrecht, the main town of the province of the same name and the fourth largest city in the Netherlands, is situated on the Kromme Oude Rijn and on the river Vecht that subsequently flows into the IJsselmeer.

The town's history is documented as early as 48 BC. The town was granted a charter in 1122. The

town's political importance declined after the principality of Utrecht was taken over by Emperor Charles V in 1528, but it subsequently regained influence during the Dutch struggle for liberation from Spanish rule.

Isaac HAGEMAN. Born 10 Oct 1779 in Harlingen, Somerset Co., New Jersey1 He was baptized on 28 Nov 1779 in Six Mile Run Dutch Reformed Church, Six Mile Run, Somerset Co., New Jersey.14 He immigrated in 1837 to Illinois from New Jersey, along with his second wife Ellen Voorhees, many of his children including his grown son William Brown Hageman and his first wife Aletta Quick Stryker, and many other Somerset families. Isaac died on 15 Nov 184911 in Fairview, Fulton County, Illinois.11 Cause of death: typhoid fever.

The record of Isaac's baptism is in "Six-Mile Run Church Baptisms, 1743-1805: From the Records, " Somerset County Historical Quarterly Vol VIII, 1919.14 The Six-Mile Run Dutch Reformed Church is in Franklin township, Somerset County,

New Jersey.

1779. Nov. 28. Hagemen, Benyemen and Sara--Isaac.

The record of Isaac and wife Maria's membership in the Harlingen Dutch Reformed Church is in Harlingen Dutch Reformed Church membership records: "5/23/1823 Isaac Hagaman, Maria Van Der Veer"

The migration of Isaac with his second wife Ellen VOORHEES is recorded in the book William Oppie of Somerset County,

New Jersey, 1958, p.59:9

Isaac Hageman m. 2nd Ellen Voorhees. These two went to Illinois c. 1837 along with many other Somerset families. The record of his death is in the Dutch Reformed Church at Fairview, Ill., which is the oldest Dutch Reformed Church west of the Alleghenies.

The story of Isaac Hageman's last days, passing, and estate settlement is lovingly told by Sarah C. (Ross) Hageman (wife of Isaac and Maria Vanderveer Hageman's son Andrew Brown Hageman), in a family treasure known as "Sarah's Book,"1900:11

Our little girl [Anna M. Hageman] was born in October [1848] and Aunt Lettie [Aletta Quick Stryker] , William Hageman’s wife came and staid with me two weeks, and we had a good time. She often spoke of it. Andrews people all liked me. We got along together very well. I treated them very well. That Fall we moved into Father [Isaac] Hageman’s house. He boarded with us. I done his work and we had the house nice and comfortable. We lived very happily that Winter. He took a great deal of care of the children.

Andrew had all the work he could do the next Spring. He worked about three months and then he bought three town lots and got rocks and lumber hauled to build a house. He dug the cellar and laid the wall himself, framed it up, raised and enclosed, and floor down and stairway up, but in the Spring he plowed up part of the lots and planted to potatoes, sweet corn, and lima beans, and all kinds of garden truck we wanted. Then done well he worked them up every evening.

That Fall Father [Isaac] Hageman took the typhoid fever and died the 15th of Nov. I also had it and was very sick. Sister Elisabeth came up and Uncle James Beardsley came with her. They came up and Uncle James had it and was very sick. They came up the river on a steam boat. It landed at Copers Creek some miles south of Canton. I don’t know how they got to Canton or how they came from there to our house. Now probably there was a stage or they came out with someone as Canton was our general trading place. It was cold weather... As it was 8 or 9 miles to Pitsfield and I believe 13 to Florence where they took the boat, but mother was worried about us and they came.

Father Hageman’s sale was settled up. Everything sold for what it would bring. Money was scarce and things did not fetch what they ought to.

The following is the will of Isaac Hageman, transcibed from the handwritten original:

On 2 Nov 1778 Benjamin second married the widow Sarah VOORHEES; she was 36.


The marriage of Sarah and Benjamin is twice recorded in the Documents Relating to the Colonial History of the State of New

Jersey Vol. 22:

[Page 183]:

"Hegeman, Benjamin, Somerset, and Sarah Suydam 1778 Nov. 2"

[Page 388]:

They had the following children:

1i.Isaac (1779-1849)

ii.Gertrude (1781-1859)

The following is used by permission from Ora Elizabeth Hageman-Burnett and Ethel Marie Hageman-Mellies, sisters and descendants of Isaac and Maria Vanderveer Hageman, Hageman-Pendleton Genealogy, privately published June 1985 and updated November 1995, starting on p. 402:


Benjamin Hegeman/Hageman, the youngest son of Adrian Hegeman and his wife, Maria Vander Vliet was baptized on 31 March 1731 in the Reformed Dutch Church of Harlingen in Montgomery Township in Somerset County, New Jersey.

Benjamin married twice, first about 1755 to Gitty______, who was born about 1736 and died, 6 February1777, and is the mother of his first ten (10) children. He married second, 2 November 1778 (License issued) in Somerset County to Sarah Voorhees Suydam, the widow of Isaac Suydam, (son of Ryck) who died in 1776. Sarah, our ancestor, the daughter of Peter and Mary Voorhees was probably born in November and baptized on 5 December 1742 in the First Reformed Church of New Brunswick in Middlesex County, New Jersey and died 9 January 1839 at age 96 years and two months. She is buried in Pleasant Plains Cemetery in Franklin Township,

(now Franklin Park) in Somerset County, New Jersey, near her daughter, Ann Suydam Brown, wife of Andrew Brown. Sarah and her first husband, Isaac Suydam were the parents of five children. Benjamin and Sarah were the parents of two children, Isaac and Gertrude.

On 8 August 1754, Benjamin's parents, Adrian and Maria Hegeman conveyed one half of the family homestead to him and the other half to his brother, Simon. The homestead was located at Six Mile Run, on the West side of the "Old Indian Path" (now Route 27, Lincoln Highway) and about one mile north of Franklin Village (now Franklin Park). The homestead contained about 350 acres. It is almost certain that Benjamin acquired more land during his lifetime, for in OLDE NEW JERSEY..... page 1084, (Land Records) Benjamin Hegeman from Garret Hoogeland, E.3:251 (acres?) 1765. NEW JERSEY RATABLES. GMNJ Vol. 51:36, among the names listed is Benjamin Hegeman, 6 (Lots) "These men names above written who are tax'd for sundry lots of land are mostly Inhabitants in Summerset County though their lots lays in our Township which causes much trouble for the Asseser & Colector." Benjamin and his older sons, Adrian, Peter, and Benjamin, Jr. are listed on the 1793

Census of New Jersey in the Eastern Precinct of Somerset County. Later his son, Peter who married, Nancy Suydam, lived, owned and died on the homestead.

Found in, NEWSPAPER EXTRACTS, Vol. 25:82, New Jersey Archives. " away from Benjamin Hegeman, of Somerset County, in New Jersey, the 25th of March last, an Irish Servant Man, named James M'Grady, of short Stature, fair Complexion, and has brown curled Hair; Had on when he went away, a light brown Jacket, the sleeves of another cloth, an old homespun Linen Shirt, Leather Breeches, made of Sheepskin, blue yarn Stockings, has near three years to serve, and has been Servant before in Pennsylvania, near Lancaster.

Note: Immigrants from other countries often indentured themselves to serve for a certain number of years, as payment for passage to this country.

Benjamin Hegeman is listed as a Private in the New Jersey State Troops of Sommerset County, New Jersey in the Revolutionary War. (Official Register Of The Officers and Men Of New Jersey In The Revolutionary War, p.625) Note: Margaret Bascom Cron, of Elizabeth, N.J., joined the D.A.R. under Benjamin Hageman, her 3rd Great Grandfather. Her D.A.R. Number is 663593.

At the close of the Revolutionary War, Benjamin Hageman of Six Mile Run proved that he suffered depredations by the British Troops to the extent of [pound sign] 59.19.5.

On February 6, 1800, Benjamin Hageman and Sarah, his wife of Somerset County, deeded woodland in Middlesex County to Andrew Brown for [pound sign] 72.11.0; on May 12, 1801-deeded property to Abraham DeHart of Middlesex County for $223.60. Note: research done by EWH and found in the Hageman File at Rutgers University by Margaret Cron and June Wick and sent to me in 1991. Benjamin Hageman died 11 June 1804 at Six Mile Run and was buried there in the Hageman Family Cemetery, about 300 yards west of his parents home along the fence line. Benjamin's first wife, Gitty, and his daughter, Anna, his parents and probably others were buried there. Their neighbors were the Stryker's and their family cemetery was on the other side of the fence. It appears that around 1936 any stones left in the Hageman Cemetery were put in the Stryker Cemetery and the soil in the Hageman Cemetery was tilled. There is a stone in Elm Ridge Cemetery in the family plot of his son, Benjamin, Jr., in memory of Benjamin Hageman, died 11 June 1804 in 71st year of age; Gitty Hageman, died Feb. 6, 1777 41st year; Anna, dau. of Benj. & Gitty, died Feb. 1777, age 18.

Benjamin B Hageman [signature]

DOLIS or Dollius, Nyse or Denyse, Adrian, and Jacobus Hegeman, of the Raritans and vicinity of New Brunswick in 1703, were sons of Denyse and Liurstia Hegeman, of Flatbush, and grandsons of Adrian, the emigrant, who came over in 1650 or 1651 and settled in Flatbush.

The subject of this sketch is a grandson of Benjamin Hegeman, and a great-grandson of Adrian Hegeman, who served in the Revolutionary war. The former occupied the old homestead of the family at Six-Mile Run, where John Garretson now resides. His first wife, Gertrude, bore him five sons and three daughters. The sons were Adrian, Benjamin, Peter, Simon, and William. Ann died aged eighteen; Mary married Jacob Skillman; and Jane, Cornelius Waldron. For a second wife he married the widow Sarah Brown[error: one of Sarah's daughters married a BROWN, but Sarah was born VOORHEES and first married a SUYDAM-- webmaster], and had a son, Isaac, and a daughter, Gertrude, who married John Nevius. He died June 14, 1804, over seventy-three years of age, and was buried on his own farm. His first wife died Feb. 6, 1777.

Benjamin, father of our subject, was born on the old homestead in 1762. He married Magdalene, daughter of Bernardus and Leah Garretson, in 1809, and had two sons, Bernardus G., born Jan. 5, 1810, died April 14,1864, unmarried, and Benjamin B. Mr. Hageman died Feb. 15, 1829, aged sixty-seven. His wife died April 19, 1814, aged forty years five months and twenty-four days.

Benjamin B. Hageman was born on the north-eastern half of the old homestead, where Henry P. Cortelyou now resides, March 2, 1812. When two years of age his mother died, and he was taken to the old Garretson homestead at Middlebush, where he now resides, and which has been in the possession of the descendants of that family since Feb. 14, 1756. He grew up on the farm and attended the common school of his day. In February, 1845, he married Jane Ann, daughter of Samuel V. T. and Catherine (Smith) Van Wickle, of Middlesex County, and for sixteen years engaged in farming operations near Somerville. March 20, 1861, he returned to the Garretson homestead in Franklin township, erecting his attractive residence the same year. His barns were built in 1876-77.

Mr. Hageman is of a quiet and unostentatious temperament, and, while he has always taken a deep interest in events transpiring around him, he has kept aloof from the strifes and contentions of public life. He is a Republican in politics, and a member of the Reformed Church of Middlebush. He is recognized as a man of integrity in all the relations in life, and enjoys the confidence and respect of all. His children are Garretson, a graduate of Rutgers College in 1868, residing on the home farm, engaged in surveying and civil engineering and notary; and Samuel Van Wickle, a graduate of Eastman's Business College, Poughkeepsie, N. Y., in 1874.

Sarah VOORHEES.12 Born about 1742. Sarah was baptized in New Brunswick, New Jersey on 5 Dec 1742.

Sarah first married Isaac SUYDAM, son of Ryck SUYDAM of Six Mile Run. Isaac died in 1776.

On 2 Nov 1778 when Sarah was 36, she second married Benjamin HEGEMAN.

Third Generation

Adriaen HEGEMAN. Born on 4 Mar 1685/86 in New Amsterdam, New York (Flatbush, Jamaica, Kings Co., New York). One source has his birth date 14 Mar 1686. Adriaen was baptized in the Reform Church, New Amsterdam on 14 Mar 1685/86. Witnesses were Joost Hegeman, Jacobus Hegeman and Femmetie Rems. Adriaen died in Six-Mile Run, Somerset,

New Jersey on 8 Aug 1754; he was 69. Occupation: farmer. Alias/AKA: Adrian/Aaron HAGAMAN.

The following is from History of Hunterdon and Somerset Counties, New Jersey, compiled by James P. Snell, 1881:13

[Note: Please read the part about who Benjamin's first and second wives were with caution, as it contains some mistakes. Also,

Isaac Hageman did not die in Harlingen as Snell writes below, but rather he removed to Fulton Co., Illinois with his second wife

Ellen Voorhees and died there. -- Webmaster]


[p. 804]

As early as 1703, Dollies, Denice, Adrian, and Jacobus Hageman, grandsons of Aaron* [footnote at bottom of page reads: *Aaron Hageman and Catherine, his wife, came from Holland, resided in New Amsterdam a short time, and then settled at Flatbush in 1661. He died in 1672.the emigrant, appear to have located at Six-Mile Run and its vicinity. Adrian married Maria, a daughter of John Vleet, whose lands joined his on the north, purchased land, and built a house where John Garretson resides, on the Somerset side of the old path. He had sons---Hendrick, Adrian, Joseph, Simon, Jacobus, and Benjamin---and daughters,---Gaertie, who married Joh Manley; Mary, Adrian Hageman; and Catherine, Samuel Waldron. He was buried about 300 yards west of his dwelling, along the line between his and the old Stryker property, where his wife, Mary, and others of the family were also buried. In his will, proved July 27, 1762, he left his real estate to his sons Benjamin and Simon,---to Benjamin, the parts on which the buildings were; to Simon, that part where Henry P. Cortelyou now lives.

Benjamin's first wife's name was Sarah, and they lived on the homestead. His children were Mary, who married Jacob Skillman; Jane, Cornelius Waldron; and Gertrude, John P. Nevius, who removed to Western NewYork; Adrian, who married Frances Wyckoff and lived and died at Six-Mile Run; Benjamin (2d), who married Lena Garretson, of Middlebush.

Simon married Ida Suydam and moved to Ohio; William had three wives, and lived and died at Three-Mile Run; Isaac married Maria Van Derveer, and lived and died at Harlingen; Peter married Nancy Suydam, lived, owned, and died on the homestead. He had three children,---Sarah, who lived and died single; Benjamin, who moved to Dayton, Ohio, and married there. He was captain of a rifle company raised in Franklin township, and was a brave officer. He was afterwards appointed major of the Second Battalion, Third Regiment, of Somerset Brigade, commanded by Col. Barcalow. Adrian, the first settler, was succeeded on the homestead by his son Benjamin, he by his son Peter, he by Abraham Bodine, he by Hoppock, who enlarged and remodeled the old house, and he by John Garretson, who owns and has resided on the property for about twenty years.

The farm of ex-Sheriff Voorhees, lying in the rear of the homestead, extending to the Middlebush road, and first settled on by Ryke Suydam, then containing 158 acres, was a part of the original Hageman tract. In 1766, Simon, the son of Adrian, lived in a house built on his half of the old tract, on the site now occupied by Henry P. Cortelyou. Although singular, nothing further has been traced connected with his family or his children. He was succeeded on the place by Benjamin (2d), son of Benjamin (1st), who married Lena Garretson, of Middlebush, and who resided on it until his death. He was succeeded by Dr. Wilkins, who built a new house thereon; he by Henry P. Cortelyou, now residing on the property, who enlarged the house, improved the outbuildings, and made many other important changes, among which is the large and beautiful lawn with its many green trees, from which it has been very appropriately named "Greenlawn Farm." Aaron Hageman came in possession, and owned for a time the rear parts of the tract which extended to the Middlebush road, and built on it. It is now owned by Abraham Voorhees, president of the State Bank, at New Brunswick. Henry Bound owned and lived on a part lying near the middle of the old tract, which has had the following owners: Adrian


(1st), his son Simon, Benjamin (2d), Abraham Voorhees, Henry Bound, and Henry P. Cortelyou, now residing on the homestead part.

On 1 May 1713 when Adriaen was 28, he married Maria VAN DER VLIET, in Flatbush, Long Island, New York.5

They had the following children:

i.Hendrick (1713-)

ii.John (1717-1796)

iii.Margarieta (1719-)

iv.Peter (1722-)

v.Simon (1724-1799)

vi.Barnet (1727-)
