Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 7, 1753
Orange County
New York, USA
Death: May 13, 1826
Ontario County
New York, USA

Birth date may be date he was baptized. Sometimes within days of birth other times much later. Family trees on line have him born in differnent counties in New York, so hard to say which is true.

No stone found for him (read note below). Listing has him dying 9 days after his wife Katherine on May 13, 1826 at age 72.

Son of Benjamin and Annatjen (Van Aken) Westfall.

Written by a decendent or person who has him in their tree. Per Scott Allen: "Cornelius Van Aken Westfall came from Orange County to Phelps, Ontario County, New York. He was among the early settlers and took up a very large tract of land. He brought slaves with him to clear the land and work the plantation". (I would say large farm).
