Notes for Luur Jacobsen Van Kuykendall: The following was taken from Kuykendall & Neuffer Genealogy firstname.lastname@example.org
Born in Fort Orange, New Netherlands, on May 29, 1650, Luur grew up as the colony was being firmly established on the banks of the Hudson River. His early years were spent in Esopus County (now Kingston, New York) and Rochester, especially after the death of his father Jacob in 1655 and Luur's mother Stynje was married to Claes Teunissen in 1657/8. The area was being rapidly populated by Protestant Dutch who established the Dutch Reform Church in 1642 and built the first school the year Luur was born.
In 1680, Luur married Grietje Artze Tack (1663-1720), daughter of Annette Ariens and Aert Pietersen Tack of Kingston. The couple had eleven children, eight of whom were baptised in the Dutch Reform Church in Kingston and the nineth in 1700 at the church in Minisink on the Delaware river near present day Port Jervis, New York. Port Jervis was a sparsely settled area south of Kingston, at the point at which the borders of present day Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey meet. There two more of Luur and Grietje's children were born and baptised. Luur and Grietje died after 1720 in Minisink.
Spelling of first name also shown as Leur and whole name shown as Leur Jacobsen Van Kuykendall.
