He died about 1667, and letters of administration were issued to his son Jurrian August 2nd, 1703. (Book of Deeds VI, page 199, in Albany County Clerk's office, State of NY, USA). At this time the following heirs were living, namely: Jurian the oldest son; Jacob Volkert; Anna, wife of Laykas Gerrites; Styntie, wife of Jan Tysgoes; Maria, wife of Hendrick Coenraetse; Catherine, wife of Frank Harding, and Johannes, who was an old man, living at Claverack in the year 1724.

The deed was executed 7th January, 1704, and recorded in Deed Book D, page 282,3,4,5, at the Albany County Clerk's office, State of NY."
