Notes for @@#Steven Van Vorhees:
'The Van Voorhees Family, Vol 1, 1984
Steven Koerts was the ancestor of the Van Voorhees family in the New World, regardless of later variations in spelling. Even he sometimes signed his name Steven Koerten. Steven Coerten has often been used in genealogical writings; today he is by tradition referred to as Steven Coerte.
Aged sixty at the time of arrival in Nieuw Amsterdam, he was born near Hees in the Province of Drenthe in 1600.
Having arrived in Nieuw Amsterdam, Steven Koerts took time to look around and apparently had the means to do so and to maintain his family in the interim. It was not until November 29, 1660, seven months after his arrival, that he purchased from Cornelis Dircksen Hoogland nine morgens of corn land, seven morgens of wood land, ten morgens of plain land and five morgens of salt meadow in Flatlands, with the house and house plot in the village of Amersfoort en Bergen (Flatlands) with a brewery, brewing apparatus, kettle house and casks with appurtenances for three thousand guilders (Flatbush Records, Lib. B. p. 37). (A morgen is about two acres of land.)
Since he acquired all the equipment it is assumed that he followed the brewing business. That he entered into the religious and civic affairs of his community is without question. He was appointed a magistrate in 1664 and on March 19, 1664 with Elbert Elbertse (Stoothoff), represented Nieuw Amersfoort in the Provincial Assembly. (Brodhead's History of New York, p. 67). In October 1667 Steven Coertes with others, patented the town of Flatlands.
Unfortunately, the Flatlands Reformed Church has few early records, but Steven Coert and his wife are listed as members of the Church in 1677. In 1673 the Flatlands Town Records were destroyed by fire, wiping out much evidence of land transfers. Steven Coerte apparently acquired several tracts around Flatlands; they passed to his descendants when he died at Flatlands on February 16, 1684 at the ripe age of 84.

Holland Society Year Book, 1902, p. 13:
Captain Pieter Lucasz sailed his little ship "De Bonte Koe" (the Spotted Cow) between Holland and Nieuw Amsterdam regularly, but the arrival on April 15, 1660 is of special interest, as among the passengers were: "Steven Koorts From Drenthe, wife and seven children aged 22, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2. Jan Kiers, farmer and wife from Drenthe."

From newsletter of the Van Voorhees Association; Vol 6, No 1; 1988: The name of the first wife was found on the marriage certificate of daughter of Marchien. She was mentioned on the certificate as a daughter of "Steven Cours and the late Aaltjen Wessels."

Steven with his firstwife, Aaltjen Wessels, is Ronald Bennett's direct ancestor through his Father's Bennett side. Steven with his second wife, Willemptje Seubring, is Ronald Bennett's direct ancester through his Mother's Banta side.
