Note: Dorothy Koenig to me November 20, 2008 Dorothy Koenig <email@example.com> Dear Barbara, It turns out that you have a DOUBLE Reyniersen descent because Maria (Van Anglen) Anderson's parents -- Cornelius Van Hengelen (1736-1795) and his wife Sarah Reyniersen (1740-1784) -- were first cousins. The immigrant couple -- Arent Theunissen Van Hengel and his wife Tryntie Reynders -- came from Hengel in the present province of Gelderland, the Netherlands, in 1653 with their 3 eldest children and settled on Staten Island. Some in the family kept the toponym "Van Hengel" as their "surname", and the descendants of their eldest son, Reynier, assumed the patronymic "Reyniersen". Here is the line of descent forMaria's father, Cornelius: Arent Theunissen Van Hengel and Tryntie Reynders Reynier Arentsen Van Hengel and Jannetje Aukes Van Nuys Auke Reyniersen Van Hengel and Ida Vonk Cornelius Van Hengel (1705-1775) and Mrs Maria Baird Cornelius Van Hengelen (1736-1795) and Sarah Reyniersen Maria Van Anglen and Simon Anderson Here is the line of descent for Maria's mother, Sarah: Arent Theunissen Van Hengel and Tryntie Reynders Reynier Arentsen Van Hengel and Jannetje Aukes Van Nuys Auke Reyniersen Van Hengel and Ida Vonk Reynier Reyniersen (1696-1773) and Geertje Volleman Sarah Reyniersen (1740-1784) and Cornelius Van Hengelen Maria Van Anglen and Simon Anderson Reynier was the eldest son of Auke and Ida; Cornelius -- brother to Reynier -- was Auke and Ida's 5th child. I have xeroxed from the Reyniersen Genealogy those pages about the family groups of your ancestors, and I will put them in the mail for you today by priority mail so that you can receive them sometime early next week. As you know, "A Genealogy of the Reyniersen Family" was published in 1997. In May 2005 one of the authors -- Arthur P. Rynearson -- published a hardcover, 328-page "Addendum". On the title page he gives his home address. NO email address is given. "Please address all correspondence to Arthur P. Rynearson 316 Edwards Drive Fayetteville, NY 13066 Include a self-addressed, stamped envelope if an answer is desired." It would be your very good fortune if Mr. Rynearson had a copy of his book to sell you. If he has none, he might agree to xeroxing the whole book for you. Good luck! Dorothy
