The following notes from the late John D. Baldwin (50+ year Delong researcher). (More info on the couple may be found on husband's memorial.../rd)

1703 - The marriage intentions of Frans with Maritje Van Schaick were recorded Albany D.R. Church July 31, Frans recorded as born Esopus, Ulster Co., resident of NYC, Maritje born at and resident of Kinderhook (in today's northern Columbia County). At that time, Kinderhook included what is now Stuyvasent so perhaps the Van Schaicks lived near the Hudson.

The marriage took place Sept. 6 at Gerrit Van Esch's house. Elizabeth McDonald advised that Van Esch lived at Greenbush which was on the West side of the Hudson north of Kinderhook and just south of Albany in today's Albany County.

Maritje, born as late as 1788-9 (upwards of 70 in 1758) and of Kinderhook, was no doubt daughter or granddaughter of Claes Van Schaick of that place. Claes' widow was born ca 1635. Their age difference argues for granddaughter, not daughter, yet Maritje named her second son Niclaas which in patronymic style would be for her own father. (Frans and Maritje followed patronymic procedures in naming oldest son for the paternal grandfather, but seemingly did not do so with their daughters. The first daughter was named for the father's mother rather than mother's; it is unlikely an earlier daughter named for Jannetje could be fitted into the known chronology.)

1759-62 - death of Mary.
