Michael Parmentier appeared on the census of 1714 at Dutchess County, New York; listed as Maghell Pallmatir with his wife, 2 daughters under the age of 16 and 2 slaves. He died circa 1729 at Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County, New York. From Dan Stifflear, 914 Valley View Circle, Palm Harbor, FL 34684 Michael Palmatier, only known son of Pierre Palmatier and Antoinette Terrin, was born about 1654 in Belgium. His father was originally from the city of Courtrari, Belgium (Van Kleek-LeRoy Genealogy, Manuscript Department, #8179), NY Genealogical and Biographical Society, NY City). Michael, age 9, came to America with his father in April 1663 on the ship 'De Bonte Koe' (The Spotted Cow). Michael married Neeltje/Cornelia Damen about 1679. She was the daughter of Jan Corneliszen and Sophia (Martense) Damen. Her father's uncle, Jan Damen, owned the Wall Street section of lower Manhattan. Michael was a magistrate at Brooklyn in 1679 and again in 1691. He also served as a Lieutenant in the Foot Guard. He and his wife sold their mill at Bushwick in 1695 and their home there in 1699 (NYG&BR, Volume 54), joining his father at Kingston. Not long thereafter they settled at Poughkeepsie. The 1714 census showed their household in the latter place, as composed of one male over 60, two males 16 or over and one under 16; one female between 16 and 60, two under 16, and two slaves. Since son Peter then had his own domicile, the two males under 16 were presumably Jan and Michael Jr., with Damen, the youngest, under 16. When Michael bought a farm at Poughkeepsie in 1699, it covered the whole upper part of the present city of Poughkeepsie. He was one of the first 3 magistrates in Dutchess County, a prominent man, whose children married into many important families. After about 1760 branches of the family migrated to other parts of NY . Michael and Neeltje were alive as late as 1724. Their death dates do not appear in any known record, but Michael probably died about 1729 and Neeltje about 1738, both in the Poughkeepsie area. For the Damen connection, see VAN BLARCOM FAMILY, in NYG&BR, Vol. 97. Michael and Neeltje were the parents of 9 children: 1. Peter, baptised 13 June 1680 at New Utrecht, Long Island, NY. 2.
