b. 15 January 1698/99, d. December 1759, #1105
Pop-up Pedigree
Relationship=2nd cousin 8 times removed of David Kipp Conover Jr..

     Abraham Van Horne was also known as Abraham Van Horn. He was also known as Abraham Mattys Cornelissen. Abraham Van Horne was born in 1698/99 at New York. He was baptized on 15 January 1698/99 at Dutch Reformed Church, Brooklyn, Kings County, New York; Sponsors were Nickolaes Brouwer and Jannetje Brouwer. He was the son of Matthys Cornelissen and Fytie Brouwer. Abraham Van Horne resided at at Monmouth County, New Jersey, circa 1710. He married Annetje Cowenhoven, daughter of Cornelis Willemse Van Kouwenhoven and Margaretta Schenck, circa 1719. Abraham Van Horne and Annetje Cowenhoven resided at at Monmouth County, New Jersey, between 1719 and 1724. Abraham Van Horne and Annetje Cowenhoven resided at at Hunterdon County, New Jersey, circa 1724. Abraham Van Horne died in November 1759 at White House, Hunterdon County, New Jersey, at age 60. He died in December 1759 at age 60.

Abraham Van Horne, son of Matthyse Corneliussen and Fytie Brouwer, was baptized in the Dutch Reform Church, Brooklyn on 15 Jan 1699[1]; died at Whitehouse N.J. in Nov of 1759. He married at Freehold N.J. in 1719 Antje (Ann) Covenhoven, daughter of Cornelius W. and Magaretta Schenck Covenhoven. Antje was born ca. 1702. She died at Whitehouse N.J. on 12 Dec, 1759.

Abraham's father bought land in Middleton Township, Monmouth Co. New Jersey and deeded one half of the Middleton land to each of his two sons.

In 1722 Abraham sold his half of the property and purchased 490 acres of land in Readington Township, Hunterdon Co., New Jersey through which ran Rockaway Creek. This land was in 490 acres of “L” shape. Here he developed a grist mill and saw mill on the banks of the creek. About 1750 Abraham Van Horne built the first tavern in the area. It was on the road from Clinton to Somerville where it crossed Rockaway Creek (now route 22). Because the building had white plastered walls it became known as the "White House". The name also was given to the village which sprang up around the tavern. It's location on this early trail immediately led to it's being a favorite stopping place for travelers and later for stage coaches of the Easton-New Brunswick Turnpike. By the time of the Revolution it's popularity had been well established. The homestead built about 1757 by Abraham Van Horne is about one hundred yards farther down Rockaway Creek from the site of the tavern and is still occupied (March 1976).

After conducting Antjie Van Horne's funeral service, Rev. Muhlenberg made this note: "17 Dec 1759. Had to bury the deceased wife of Abraham Van Horne, who himself died only recently. Both died of a contagious kind of pox. The youngest son, his wife, and his negroes are still sick with the pox. I preached at the home in English on Psalm 90:12 and read the customary prayers in English at the grave. I also prayed for the sick in the home."

Abraham Van Horne Jr. operated the tavern after his father's death, probably through 1776. His "petition to keep a tavern" dated May 1776 with it's long list of witnesses required by law to prove a properly run establishment, is preserved in the New Jersey Archives in Trenton. [2]

The oldest house and landmark of Whitehouse is a complete wreck. In Whitehouse proper there used to stand a curious looking old building which was noted by every stranger who visited the town. The structure tumbled down Wednesday and is now a heap of bricks. The house was known as Washington's Headquarters, for the general once stopped here for a night's entertainment. An aged citizen who died some forty years ago left a journal in which was an account of his staying there the same night that General Washington was there. Stage coaches were then in vogue and some thirty or forty persons were accommodated that night and the time was spent very pleasantly dancing, etc. The house was painted white and gave the name Rockaway River. [3]

Stones from the tavern's foundation are said to be in the retaining wall about the old cemetery located not too far from the tavern's original site.[4]

Shirley Van Horne Walburn a descendant of Hiram Arthur Van Horne son of Willard Putman Van Horne went to New Jersey ca 1993 and told me that Abraham and his brother Cornelius were the first founders of the Dutch Reform Church in New Jersey. Which one I do not know.

She also said she was able to enter Abraham's house in White House, New Jersey. In the fireplace was carved in one of the stones 1757. The first two Abraham's are buried 20 yards from the house.


Abraham Van Horn, Owner, White House Tavern
By Paul E. Van Horn, 76-43

Abraham Van Horn, owner of the White House Tavern, White House, New Jersey, was christened 15 January 1699 in the Dutch Reform Church in Brooklyn, New York[5] the son of Matthys Cornelissen who arrived in Long Island in 1663.

Matthys married Fytie Brouwer Hendricks, widow of Evert Hendricks (Van Gelder) in the Flatbush Dutch Reform Church, 20 February 1692.[6] She was the daughter of Adam Brouwer and Madalina Jacobus Verdon of Gowanus, Long Island.[7]

Matthys Cornelissen owned land in Brooklyn and eventually purchased 223 acres of land in Middletown Township, Monmouth County, New Jersey from Obadiah Bowne, son of Capt. John Bowne of the famous Monmouth Patent.[8] He eventually deeded half of the Middletown land to each of his two sons. This may have been the reason why Abraham and brother Cornelius and their half sister Sarah moved to Monmouth County about 1718.

There, Abraham married beautiful Antje Covenhoven,[9] daughter of Cornelius W. Covenhoven and Margaretta Schenck who also came from Long Island.

Through “A Facsinating Deed of 1722, “Abraham sold his half of the property to Richard Salter of Middletown.[10]

Abraham then purchased 490 acres of “L” shaped land in Readington Township, Hunterdon County, through which ran Rockaway Creek.[11] It was part of a tract owned by Willocks, Bud & Logan.

In addition to adding to his land holdings, due to the great Dutch driving tradition of “LAND FOR THE SONS”, he developed a grist mill and saw mill on the banks of Rockaway Creek, and a large Tavern.

Charles S. Boyer in “Old Inns and Taverns of New Jersey.” has this to say in his book,[12] “The village of White House, located at the confluence of two branches of the Rockaway River, ten miles northeast of Flemington, was from the early days noted for its taverns. There were two of them before 1785, both with well established reputations, but neither of which is standing today.

The earliest of these taverns was built by Abraham Van Horn Sr. about 1750 and was on the road from Clinton to Somerville where it crossed Rockaway Creek. (Now Route 22) Because of its WHITE plastered walls it became known as the “WHITE HOUSE,” a name also given to the village which sprang up around the tavern. It’s location on this early trail immediately led to its being a favorite stopping place for travelers and later for stage coaches of the Easton-New Brunswick Turnpike, so by the time of the Revolution, its popularity had become well established. Van Horn kept this tavern until he died in November 1759, after which it was carried on by his youngest son, Abraham Jr.”

The Abraham Van Horn Homestead which is still lived in, is only about 100 yards farther down Rockaway Creek from the site of the Tavern and dates from 1757.[13]

Abraham Jr. must have operated the tavern through 1776, because his “Petition to keep a Tavern”, dated May 1776, still remains in the New Jersey Archives in Trenton.[14] The long list of witnesses required to prove a properly run establishment is very interesting.

All this must have been good training for Abraham Jr. when he became Forage Master for Washington’s Army during the encampment at Morristown, New Jersey.

Abraham Sr. and Antje were blessed with 3 sons and 4 daughters, all of whom married into fine local families.

Abraham Sr. died in November 1759 and Antje a month later. Here are the notes the minister made after conducting Antje’s funeral service,[15] “17 December (1759) had to bury the deceased wife of Abraham van Horn, who himself died only recently. Both died of a contagious kind of pox. The youngest son, his wife, and his negroes are still sick with the pox. I preached at the home in English on Psalm 90:12 and read the customary prayers in English at the grave. I also prayed for the sick in the home. On the way home I visited the aged Ludewig Schmidt.”[16]

Abraham Sr.s Will dated 29 December 1758 and probated 5 December 1759, distributes his expanded land holdings saw mill and grist mill among his children and grandchildren.[17]

The family line started by this wonderful couple, now numbers many hundreds scattered throughout this country and Canada. One of the most notable members is Sir William C. Van Horn whose branch of the family moved to Illinois. He started as a telegrapher with the Milwaukee Road. He progressed with the Company and was eventually selected to build the Canadian Pacific Rail Road across the Western Plains and through the Canadian Rockies. His amazing exploits were crowned with success and he became President of the Canadian Pacific and was knighted.

Many years ago, his daughter Adaline, kindly invited me to tea at the Sherbrooke St. mansion in Montreal. I was thrilled to see Sir William’s large collection of original Rembrandts and ship models. There were also a number of his paintings which he painted at night from memory.

The following summer I was invited to the summer estate on ministers Island, New Brunswick. The island was about a mile wide and three miles long, connected to the mainland by a gravel roadway which disappeared from view with each rise of the tides, as did his large swimming pool.

Here he raised prize white belted Dutch cattle. The island is now an exclusive Canadian summer resort of excellent homes.

The thrilling story of the building of the Western part of the Canadian Pacific R.R. is ably told by Canadian author Pierre Burton in his book “The Last Spike”[18] and other books he has written about the Railroad which are very popular in Canada and are now available here.

Other family notables would include Owen D. Young, past President of General Electric Co. and benefactor of Van Hornsville, N.Y. His mother was a Van Horn.

I had the honor of introducing their son Philip Young as the medalist at the Holland Society of New York banquet at the Plaza Hotel, 10 November 1965 as the former Ambassador to Holland.

Each branch of the family is equally proud of their people as am I. I greatly admire my grandfather William B. Van Horn and his wife Anna Lockard who on the family farm near Huntington Mills, Penn’s., raised 10 children including 6 boys, of which two became excellent farmers, one a teacher, one a school principal, and two doctors, one of which was my father.

I spent most of my life in the Life Insurance business and eventually started and became President of The American Life Insurance Co. of New York, now owned by Transamerica Corp., and has 3/4th of a Billion of Life Insurance in force.

One of my sons Paul Jr. is an orthopedic surgeon of the Princeton Orthopedic Group and Peter is a manufacturing jeweler in Mountain View, California.

I’m especially pleased that my favorite ancestors, Abraham Van Horn and his lovely bide, Antje Covenhoven have enabled me to become a member of Flagon & Trencher. I’m sorry to admit that the culinary arts so successfully commercialized by my tavern keeper ancestor have not descended to me through the male line.

Note: Fred Sisser III has kindly sent me a copy of the Hunterdon County Tavern Application, Vol. 8:1069, in which Cornelius Tunison petitions the court for a license stating that he has rented the white house for a term of three years at the heavy rental of 25 lbs per year and that it is well known that it has been kept as a publick house for 40 years past. (This proves that it was started as a public house in 1744, since the application for license was dated April 16, 1784.)

Dear David,

First I’d like to thank you for making your work available for other researchers to look at!! I recently dove back into my Sutphen line and I’ve come across what I think may be an inaccuracy in the generally accepted line. I have had for many years one set of my 6xgreat-grandparents as Derick Sutphen and Margaretta Couwenhoven (bap. 5 Dec 1714, d. 11 Sep 1794), daughter of Cornelis Couwenhoven and Margaretta Schenck. I show they were married in 1731 and have the following list of children for them:

John – b. 1732, died young
Mary – b. 1747 – d. 1 Jul 1826 m. 1765 Jacob Van Arsdalen (you have her birth date as 1744)
Phoebe – b. 8 May 1853 – d. 5 Aug 1888 (unmarried)
John – b. 14 Jul 1756 – d. 27 Jul 1823 m. 22 Mar 1785 Lydia Baker
Sarah – b.? d.? m. ? Freeman
Naomi – b. 1756 – d. 11 Oct 1803 m. 1776 William Tone
David – b.? – d. 1831 m. Elizabeth ?
Joseph – b. Sep 1762 – d. 27 Jan 1824 m. 1782 Rhoda or Rhonda ?
Daniel – b.? – d. AFT 1795
Rebecca – b. ? – d. AFT 1795

I think this agrees with the most commonly accepted pedigree. I am descended through John and Lydia (Baker) Sutphen and originally was trying to find Lydia Baker’s parents, but I got sidetracked (grin) by the problem I’m writing you about. I am starting to believe that Margaretta was only the mother of the John Sutphen born in 1732 and that Mary Howell was a previously unknown 2nd wife and was the mother of the remainder of the children. I came across a record on ancestry.com in the US and International Marriage Records showing Derick Sutphen born 1712 marrying Mary Howell also born 1712, but no marriage date is given. I’ve always thought it was odd that there was a 15-year gap between John in born 1732 and Mary in 1747, but didn’t take the time to look into it further. Now that I’m looking at it, here is my line of thought:

The gap of 15 years between the first child John in 1732 and the second child Mary in 1747 is odd.
Derick Sutphen’s will (I have NOT seen a copy of this yet) is said to give his wife’s name as Mary
My John Sutphen who married Lydia Baker had a daughter named Mary Howell Burrows Sutphen (my 4xgreat-grandmother) who married Jacob Kirkpatrick. (Previously I had thought that the Howell and Burrows might be a connection to Lydia, but now I’m wondering if it doesn’t refer in part to John’s mother)
If Margaretta were born the same year she was baptized (1714), she would have been 48 years old when Joseph (b. 1762) was born. Not unheard of, but again, unusual for those days.
I have also read that the tombstone for Derick Sutphen’s wife in the Tennant Churchyard Cemetery reads Mary not Margaretta. Again, I have NOT seen a picture of this or any type of “official” document.

On your data, you have 2 Derick Sutphen’s listed with the same baptism date - 6 Apr 1712 … Derick Sutphen, son of Jacob Sutphen and Antje Bennet and Derick Sutphen, son of Derick Sutphen and Grietje Aertse Van Pelt. You show Derick Jacobse Sutphen as marrying Margaretta Couwenhoven and Derick Derickse Sutphen you show as marrying Jannetje Voorhees. I believe that your birth and marriage dates on Derick Derickse Sutphen may be incorrect. I believe he was born in 1722 in married in 1749.

I guess at this point my questions are:
1) Do you have any information that would refute the Mary Howell theory?
2) Do you know of anyone actively working on the same line?
3) Do you know of anyone who has access to the Freehold-Middletown Dutch Reformed Church records? (I think it may be the Marlboro Dutch Reformed Church now sometimes called the Old Brick Church. I got a little confused reading through some of the New Jersey sites and I’m stilling sorting that out in my head)
4) Do you know of anyone who has access to Derick Sutphen’s will or the will of any of the children?

Thank you so much for reading through all this and for any help you can give me. I’d be happy to share my information with anyone who is interested!

Sincerely,

Nancy Prachar

Hi again David,

One more thing I wanted to add was that I just came across the death notice for Mary Sutfin in the History of Old Tennenth Church by Symmes and the record reads:

Derrick Sutfin died June 27, 1796 in his 84th year
Mary Sutfin died Sep 11, 1794 in her 73rd year, wife of Derrick
Phebe Sutfin died Aug 5, 1777 in her 24th year, daughter of Derrick and Mary

I think this is another point for the Mary Howell theory since if Mary “Sutfin” died in 1794 at the age of 73, she would have been born in 1721 far later than Margaretta.

Thanks again for any input you might have!
Nancy.
