|Death: ||Aug., 1776|
Frances Vliet (1713-1776) Housewife (b. 1713, Six Mile Run, Somerset County, New Jersey, USA - d. August, 1776, Three Mile Run, Somerset County, New Jersey, USA)
Frances was the daughter of Jan Janse Vliet (c1684-1737) and Margaret Blinson (1689-1742).
She married Jacob Wyckoff and after his death married John H. Piatt (1712-1760) in 1739.
With John H. Piatt she had the following children: John Piatt II (1740-1819) who married Jane Williamson on March 27, 1763 and after her death married Elizabeth Young Bear and he died in Pennsylvania; Abraham Piatt (1741-1791) who married Anabelle Andrew in 1769 and he died in Pennsylvania; William Piatt (1743-1791) who married Jemima Quick on June 01, 1774 and died in Ohio; Daniel Piatt (1745-1780) who married Catherine Sherrard on March 17, 1765 and he died in Morristown in New Jersey; and Jacob Piatt (1747-1834) who married Hannah Cook McCullough (1760-1818) on March 15, 1779 and he died in Kentucky.
Her 1980 replacement headstone reads: "In memory of Frances, daughter of Jan Janse Vliet and Margaret Blinson, formely wife of Jacob Wyckoff and late widow of John Piatt, who died August 1776, aged 63 years". The reverse of the stone reads: "Frances Vliet was the mother of Jacob, Margaret and Frances Wyckoff, and of five soldiers of the American Revolution, John, Abraham, William, Daniel and Jacob Piatt. The last three were original members of the Society of the Cincinnati. [This] replaces broken 1776 stone and placed by her 1980 descendants".
Society of the Cincinnati:
The Society of the Cincinnati was organized at the conclusion of the American Revolution, on May 13, 1783, by the officers of the Continental Army. The first President of the Society was General George Washington. Although he declined to take a third term as President of the United States, he remained the President of the Society of the Cincinnati until his death. Eligibility to the society was restricted to officers of the Continental Army and Navy who had served during the Revolution. This included officers from all thirteen original colonies, as well as officers of the French army and navy who had served in America. A hereditary clause was added to the membership rules, allowing the eldest son in the male line, under the laws of primogeniture, to succeed to membership in the society upon the death of the original member. As a result of this hereditary element to the society, it has continued in existence to the present day.
