&nbsp;&nbsp;Additional information: LifeSketch:On Dec 5, 1654 Hendrick Jans Van Schalckwyck [Hendrick Jansen Ostrom] received 25 mogens of land, back of the Kill van Kull, the site of [later] Bergen New Jersey. There were difficulties with the Indians. The Ostrom family were living there at the time of Tryntie Ostrom [variously spelled] & Arien Pieterse Buys marriage on September 30 1672. In 1687 already an old man, Hendrick Ostrom and a relative by marriage, Baltus Van Kleeck, took a 10 year lease to property on the present site of Poughkeepsie, New York. This was hitherto a completely unsettled area, and by the terms of the lease, Hendrick & Baltus were expected to recruit other settlers to help them break ground. A mortgage of 1691 enumerates several of these people, but at the conclusion of the lease in 1697 only Baltus van Kleeck took permanent title. It is surmised that Hendrick Ostrum may have died. Jan Ostrum is listed among the settlers of 1691. Jan was Hendricks only son, and in 1707 took permanent title to property on which he had been living since 1702. Ante-Nuptial agreement dated June 11 1666. Hendricke Jansen Oosteroem, widower of Tryntien Lubbers, deceased and now betrothed to Gretien Jacobsen. Tryntien Lubbersen left 3 children: Tryntient Hendrickx, Jan Hendrickx, Jannitien Hendricks. Guardians; Jan Aersen Vanderbylt & Gerrit Lubbersen [Flatbush Town Records, Liber D, p 68]
