Daniel DuBois is the first record Baptism in the New Paltz Church records, the date being April 28 1684 in the Reformed Dutch Church at New Paltz, Ulster County, New York.


In 1705 Daniel DuBois built the "Old Fort". The old stone house is still standing on Huguenot Street, and on April 10, 1968 it was purchased by the DuBois Family Association from the heirs of Louise Berry Dingman, a descendant of Daniel and Maritje (LeFevre) DuBois.

Daniel DuBois was a freeholder of New Paltz, Ulster County, New York in 1728.


His will is dated August 16, 1729 and states as follows:

"Let out beginning be in the name of God. "Be it known to all those whom it shall concern that today, the sixteenth day of the month of August in the year One thousand Seven hundred and twenty nine, I the undersigne Daniel DuBois, a resident of New Paltz, in the county of Ulster, in the Province of New York, in America, being well in body and mind, for which God be praised, seeing that the day and hour of death is uncertain to us God having hidden from us the time and the moment which he has reserved in His adorable Providence Therefore, I have wished here to declare by these presents, my last Will and Testament in form and manner following: I dissolve, I revoke, I annul and make void every other Testament which I have made or passed, either by word or by writing: it shall be null and of no effect. But this is and shall be my last Will & Testament & none other. And thus I recommend my soul to God my creator. As for temporal goods, which it has pleased God to give me much more than I deserve, as lands, houses, barns, orchards, pastures, and heritage, horses, cattle and other domestic animals, gold, silver, coined or otherwise, tin cooking utensiles, iron tools, and all other utensiles which belong to my property, I give and devise as follows:

FIRST. It is my wish and desire that all my lawful debts be paid at a suitable time by my executors hereafter named.

SECOND. It is also my wish and express desire that my wife Maritje shall live in the full possession and enjoyment of all my property real and personal after my death to enjoy it
peacably during her widowhood without her being obliged to give account of it to my children or to any person whatever. But in case she shall happen to marry again, she shall have a third revenue of all my lands, also she shall have one negress, three or four cows, three horses and all the furniture of my house, during her life; and after her death they shall return and shall belong to all my children in general, to be equally divided and shared among and between them. Therefore it will be necessary to take an inventory.

THIRD. I give and it is my wish that my eldest son Benjamin shall have for his right as eldest son all my cavalry equipments except the horse without claiming for that reason any other things.

FOURTH. I devise and it is my wish to give all my property, real and personal, to my six children - Elizabeth, Benjamin, Mary, Simon, Rachel, and Isaac, to them and their heirs (exept what is above disposed of ) to be equally shared among those six, each one of them to have an equitable part or portion.

FIFTH. But if my wife should have other children during my life they shall share and have part in the inheritance with the aforesaid heirs here named, each one of them and among them equally a just part or portion.

SIXTH. If I shall have a posthumous child, then it must share in all inheritance justly and equally.

SEVENTH. I wish and desire that if any of my heirs wish to sell or change any parts or portions of their inheritance, they shall give preference in the matter first to their brothers and sisters, but if one of my heirs shall happen to die without heirs then his part of the inheritance shall be divided equally between all my other heirs the survivors.

EIGHTH. I appoint and establish for executors of this my Testament and last Will, my brother Philip DuBois, my uncle Jacob Hasbrouck, and my brother Pierre Cantine and thus I wish and desire that the said Testam

Pierre Cantine was his wife's half-brother.
