Andrew Kip’s service as “Major” may have come after the Revolution. He was a Captain in Lt. Col. Commandant Andrew Heermance’s regiment which was active after 1783 [MMCA p. 291]. During the Revolution he was definitely a Private, having been given Land Bounty Rights for the 6th Dutchess regiment of militia.
Andrew (Andries) Kip was born May 18th, 1762 to John Baptist Kip and Catharina Heermans. John Baptist Kip was a son of Roeliff Kip, father of Igness, making Andrew the nephew of Patriot Igness Kip and brother of Patriot Garret Kip. His grandfather Roeliff’s brother Isaac was the father of Patriot Dr. Isaac Kip (see Kip abridged family tree on p.19).
Andrew married Sara Kip (born c. 1773 a daughter of Jacob (1742) and Claartje Heermans) and they had children John 1801, James 1803, Catherine 1806, Andrew 1806, Edward 1811, Jane Eliza 1815, Clarissa, and Sarah—some of whom are buried in the Reformed Church ground and some in the Rhinebeck Cemetery to the south. He was an elder of the church in 1821 and 1825. In 1799, he owned pew #6 with his brother Garret. Andrew died June 24th, 1843 in Rhinebeck.
