For many years now I have been looking for the origins of my great x 6 grandmother, RACHEL BAREE who married JEREMIAH MARTINE (b 1734 Phillipsburgh, Westchester Co NY). During their married life they lived in Orange & Rockland Co NY, specifically in the towns of Kakiat/New Hempstead, Haverstraw and possibly Clarkstown.
What I do know about RACHEL is this: She was likely born in New York. She likely had a sister named SUSANNAH/SUSANNA BAREE who married WILLIAM FELTER, and who had two children (twins?) born in Clarkstown, WILLIAM FELTER Jr and SUSANNAH FELTER born Nov 14, 1762. There was also a possible brother, ISAAC BAREE/BERRAY, who was on a list of enlisted men, Revolutionary War, 2nd Regiment, Orange Co NY. His likely sisters both married men from Orange/Rockland Co NY, and at least one of those, WILLIAM FELTER, was also in the 2nd Regiment.
RACHEL BAREE & JEREMIAH MARTINE had the following children, all born Haverstraw NY:
--JOHN MARTINE b 1762 m MARIA STEVENSE/STEVENSON
--SUSANNAH MARTINE b 1763 m JOHANNES VANDERBILT
--DANIEL MARTINE b 1764 m GRIETJE VANDERBILT
--ISAAC MARTINE b 1766 d 1813 m GEERTJE "CHARITY" CAMPBELL ( my g X 5 grandparents)
--RACHEL MARTINE b abt 1770, no further info
--JEREMIAH MARTINE Jr b 1774, no further info
--ABRAHAM MARTINE b June 6, 1776 m SARAH SALLY VANDERBILT, buried Clarkstown NY DRC cemetery
--REBECCA MARTINE (unverified) b 1770s, no further info
Although French in both surname & origin, most if not all of these children were members of the Dutch Reformed Church and were baptized & married in that church. JEREMIAH MARTINE's parents JOHN/JEAN MARTINE Jr b 1690 and EVA AEFJE MABIE, were also members of the Old Dutch Reformed Church at Sleepy Hollow, formerly the manor church of Phillipsburgh, by June of 1732.
The first names "Isaac" and "Susannah" did not appear in previous generations of the MARTINE family.
