Earliest American Ancestors od Sommerset Families"

"Hageman, -- Adriaen Hegeman came from Amsterdam about 1650 and resided at Flatbush Long Island. He was born about 1639 and died April 1672; married Catherine ?." (we now know was Margits-SMH) "He was town clerk, auctioneer and, in 1664, county sheriff. His sons were Joseph, hendrikus, Jacobus (all born Holland), Abraham, Denuyse, Isaac, and Benjamin. The family of Denuyse, or dennis (who died 1748), settled in Somerset. Name spelled in this country both Hageman and Hageman."

The line then goes back from (Frans) Hendrikus Hegeman and Catrina DeDeutscher to (Frans) Adriance Hegeman and Antje Ruwaaert (or Rugaard) back to Joseph Adrianse hegeman and Femmetje (Phebe) Remsen Vanderbeeck back to Adrian Hegeman and Catharine Margits.

 Jospeh Hagerman married to Susanna Labar (born abt 1785-1880) we think is the daughter of Abraham Labar and Mary Long . Joseph Hagerman was born in 26 December 1776 NJ and died in PA Stroud Township25 May 1823. he apparently died of Typhoid according to a story by his son who shows Susanna's parents as Abraham Labar and mary Long. I now have the death will fragment of John Long which shows his daughter Mary was married to Abraham Labar and another daughter was married to William Labar. Abraham Labar lived in Upper Mt. Bethel in the census data. I think he moved further west in PA before he died. The son of Joseph Hagerman and Susanna labar named Francis was a stagecoach maker and became well to do in Mt. Bethel, Northampton Co. PA. The son Francis Hagerman was buried in the same place as his mother Susanna is buried at what used to be Mt. bethel cemetery but is now the Slate Museum.

3.   Francis (“Frank”)5 Hegeman (Hendrick4, Frans3, Hendrick2, Adriaen1), of Poughkeepsie, Dutchess Co., carpenter, was bapt. 13 Feb. 1742/3 in the Poughkeepsie Dutch Church,[273] living 1780. He m. before March 1766, Abigail Thorn,[274] b. ca.1745, d. 22 Nov. 1815, aged 70 years, a member of the family of Samuel Thorn, of Cortlandt Manor. She was possibly related in some way to her husband’s stepmother, Catharine (Van Wyck) (Ter Boss) Hegeman, whose mother was a Thorne.
     His wife, as “Abigail Thorn, wife of Frans Hegeman Jr.,” is listed as a member of the Poughkeepsie Dutch Church in March 1766. “Frenck Hegeman” and “Ebbe Thorn” served as sponsors at the baptism of Stephen, son of Peter and Ann (Thorn) Monfort, on 16 June 1771 in the Dutch Church of Poughkeepsie. They also served, as “Francis Hagemen and his wife,” at that of Joseph, son of Ezekiel and Phoebe (Thorn) Palen, on 19 April 1778 in the Dutch Church of New Hackensack. The two Thorn women were doubtless Abigail’s sisters. These baptismal records, together with those of Francis’ own children, place him at Poughkeepsie in 1771-71, and at New Hackensack in 1778-80. He was probably the “Francis Hageman” who appears in all the surviving tax lists of Rombout Precinct between 1774 and 1779,[275] and who signed the Association Test on 15 Aug. 1775.[276] According to Dickinson, citing part of Driggs’ Hegeman manuscript which we have not seen, “Francis Hegeman was a carpenter in Poughkeepsie who served in the American forces during the Revolution.” This statement is supported by the fact that a “Francis Hagaman” was a private in Brinckerhoff’s regiment of Brower’s company of the New York State Troops.[277]
     Known issue (order partly inferential):
  1. Catharina Hegeman, bapt. 26 Jan. 1772 in the Poughkeepsie Dutch Church, no sponsors being named in the record. She was apparently the one of this name who d. by 1815, having m. (as his first wife) 3 April 1791 in the Poughkeepsie Dutch Church, Robert Hoffman, Jr., b. 6 March 1769 and bapt. 30 March following in the Poughkeepsie Dutch Chuch, d. 31 Aug. 1827 aged 57 at Poughkeepsie, “survived by a large family,”[278] son of Lieut.-Col. Robert Hoffman, of Poughkeepsie, by the latter’s wife Sara van Alstyne.[279] However, the names Francis and Abigail do not appear among her chidldren. Whoever was the Catharine Hegeman who married Robert Hoffman, he was certainly the same man who married secondly 26 May 1814 in the Poughkeepsie Dutch Church, Mrs. Sarah (Berger or Burger) Williams,[280] for their daughter Amelia (b. 1815) was baptized in 1817 along with Robert’s son John by his first marriage. Robert Hoffman also had a son Josiah Ogden born in 1818. “Sarah Burger wife of Robert Hoffman” became a member of Poughkeepsie Dutch Church in 1816, and she probably outlived him as the name of “Sarah Hoffman widow of Robert Hoffman” appears without date in a later membership list. Known issue, mainly per Hoffman genealogy (all baptisms being in the Poughkeepsie Dutch Church):
    1. Robert Hoffman (III), b. 28 July 1791, bapt. 14 Aug. following (no sponsors named).
    2. Sarah Hoffman, b. 26 Sept. 1793, bapt. 17 Nov. following (no sponsors named).

  1. No doubt you have seen my research. I consider Francis Hagerman, Sr.'s ancestors yet a mystery. I was just over to Sussex and Hunterdon Co. a week ago. I have confirmed where he lived at in Centerville/Knowlton. When is the last you were researching him?
