Note: 3- Tzjerk, so of Claas van den bogaart & Anna van Vorst, witnesses: Harmanus van den Bogaart & Catarina van den Bogaart. (Note: Claas is the short form of Nicholas).
Source found in the Schenectady, NY, history library: Richard Allen Shepherd, Sunnyvale, CA: The Dutch name "Tjerk" is pronounced "Cherrick" in Dutch & the spelling gradually evolved to Cherrick in English. Tjerk VDB died in 1835 in Genessee County, NY. He married Sarah Adams & had a daughter, Nancy who was b. 14 Apr. 1790, 4th Ward Schenectady, m. Mar 9 1806 in Alexander, Genesee Co., NY & who died 19 Sep 1880 in Genessee Co., NY. (I wrote to this person but never heard back).
My comments: Cherrick VDB would have been no more than 4 yrs. old when his father (Nicholas) died. Anna Van Vorst VDB, his mother, remarried two or three years later to John Kemp, sometime prior to 1761. Cherrick would have been about 7 yrs. old when his step-brother, Joseph Kemp, was born in 1761 in Schenectady, NY. John Kemp would have virtually raised Cherrick and his younger siblings. John Kemp, his wife Anna Van Vorst VDB Kemp, Cherrick's younger brother, Francis VDB, & the 5 Kemp children, left the Ballston/Schenectady area of New York State & moved to Ontario, Canada, in 1784. John Kemp, 3 of his sons, & step-son Francis VDB had fought for the British during the American Revolution. Cherrick VDB would have been 30 years of age in 1784. It is not know what he did during the Revolution but I did not find him on the British Army muster rolls. Cherrick VDB was on the 1790 US Census shown living in 4th Ward Schenectady (present day Glenville) NY, area. Glenville is very near Schenectady. Beers Gazeteer, written in 1890, (see below), states that Cherrick & Sarah's son, Joseph VDB, was born in Charleston, Montgomery County, NY, in 1787. I believe this is an error & it should read Charlton, New York. Charlton is a small town located mid-way between Ballston & Schenectady. Joseph Kemp, Cherrick's step-brother, was married in Ballston in 1787 but it was noted on this marriage record that he was actually from Charlton.

Source: Shelley Fox- I am sending something to you that was written by Electa O’Hara, who lived in Sikeston, MO. She sent this to my husband Ron in 1986, she passed away in (I think) 2001, I looked it up but can’t remember off the top of my head and she would have been in her 90’s. Tjerk, a son of Nicolaes and Anna Van Vorst (the second wife), was baptized at Schenectady Dutch Reformed Church March 5, 1754. He is the ancestor of Lillian O’Hara. These records to this point were compiled by Howard McConville and published in a Journal of the Schenectady County Historical Society, Volume 9, No. 4, June of 1966. Tjerk did not remain in Schenectady or nearby so it is not known when he married, but in 1816 according to Beers 1788-1890 History of Genesee County, New York, page 165, he bought land near the town of Alexander from the Holland Land Company. By this time Tjerk had changed his name from the Dutch spelling and pronunciation to Cherrick. According to Beers, he married Sally Adams of Schenectady and the children were Nicholas, Francis, Nancy, Polly, William, James, Margaretta, John, Cherrick, Abram and Joseph. Where the family lived during the time between Schenectady and Alexander is nor fully known, but Joseph was born according to a bible record in Charleston, Saratoga County, 9/02/1787 and died 9/03/1865, and census records of 1790, Tjerk (Cherrick) is listed in Ballstown, Albany County, not far from Schenectady. He died at the age of 83 years according to Beers. The VDB’s owned farms around Alexander and a tavern inn in Alexander. Sally Adams VDB, according to two of her great granddaughters was related to the John Quincy Adams family. Cherrick’s son Nicholas is the ancestor of Lillian O’Hara.
