    Notes 
    • From Zuber Family RootsWeb:
      "Cornelius was born to Jan Van Texel in 1600 in Holland. He came to American after 1611 with Henry Hudson on the 'Half-Moon' as a ward of Hendrick Harmensen. He was selected by the Montauk Chief, Wyandanch, as Commissioner of Peace between Indian tribes prior to 1624 when he married Wyandanch's daughter Catoneras. They had one son, Jan Cornelius Van Tassel. They lived at Eaton's Neck, Crop Meadown on 4 x 6 miles of land Wyandanch had given her."

      "....being one of the first to emigrate when it was decided to occupy and settle New Netherland. He married, shortly after his arrival, the daughter of an Indian chief, at Eider's Neck (now Huntington, Long Island), and one son was born, who was named after his father...."

      "Jan Cornelius Van Texell was the first of that name among the earliest Dutch settlers coming to New Netherlands. He was one of the well-known Van Texell family, of Holland, and emigrated to this country about the year 1630. Sometime after his arrival, Wyandance, Sachem of Long Island , gave him his (Wyandance's) daughter in marriage, she being one of the fourteen Indian women taken into captivity by Ninigret, chief of the Narragansetts, and afterwards ransomed through the good offices of Lion Gardiner."
      "The year of his coming is not known. Though it is thought he must have come over in one of the Dutch vessels which commenced trading with the Indians, shortly after Hendrick Hudson, in 1609 sailed up the Hudson River and could not have arrived in the counry later than 1624; probably he came earlier. It is believed he came here from the province of North Holland, in the Netherlands."
