GENEALOGY: Possibly the son of Nicholas Bogardus and Rachel Smedes (baptized January 29th, 1738 at the Dutch Church in Kingston), Everardus married May 31st, 1770 Arriantje Hoogteeling and they had children Benjamin 1771, Wilhelmus 1772, Nicholas 1774, Phillip 1776, Everardus 1778, Blandina 1780, Petrus 1785, Abraham 1786, and John 1787. Everardus was a deacon of the Reformed Church in Rhinebeck in 1771 and an elder in 1777 and is listed in the census in Rhinebeck in 1790. He might have been a second-great-grandson of the famous Dominie Everardus Bogardus, the second clergyman in all of New Netherland who died in the famous shipwreck with Director Willem Kieft in 1647. He purchased the Traphagen Inn in 1769, which during the war was known as the “Bogardus Tavern”. His son Benjamin took it over when he died in 1799. Today we call it the Beekman Arms.
