    In the fall of 1662 Jan Joosten Van Meteren settled in Wildwych (now Kingston, Ulster County, New Jersey) and dwelt many years in that vicinity, which included the towns of Hurley, Middletown, and Esoppus. He is not noted in the activities of that community until the seventh of June, 1663, the date when the Minnisink Indians made an attack on the village and its vicinity raiding and burning the settlement of Hurley and Kingston and carrying away women and children in captivity. Among the latter were Jan;s wife and children, Jooste Jans being one of them s well as Catherine DuBois, the wife of Louis DuBois, and their daughter Sarah. whom Jooste Jans Van Metern later married. These were taken to the fastness of Catskill Mountains and remained in captivity for months, but were rescued on the eve of torture by DuBois, and Captain Martin Kreiger's company of Manhattan soldiers; the trainband finally rounded up the Indians and defeated them on September 3, 1663. In connection with this tragic experience the following statements is quoted:" About ten weeks after the captive of the women and children, the Indians decided to celebrate their own escape from pursuit by burning some of their victims and the ones selected were Catherine DuBois, and her baby Sara. A cubical pile of logs was arranged and the mother and child placed thereon: when the Indians were about to apply the torch, Catherine began to sing the 137th Psalm as a death chant. The Indians withheld the fire and gave her respite while they listened; when she had finished they demanded more, and before she finished the last one her husband and the Dutch soldier's from Amsterdam arrivesd and surrounded the savages, killed and captured some, and otherwise inflicted terrible punishment upon them, and released the prisoners. Captain Kreiger's Journal which gives a general account of the expeition of rescue, unfortunately does not mane him, but it is elsewhere stated that it was due to Jooste Jan's three months' association with the Indians, during his captivity, that gave him the knowledge of their habits, trails, plans and war feuds with other tribes, and so impressed him with a desire for their adventurous life.

    Jooste married Sara DU BOIS daughter of Louis DU BOIS and Catherine BLANCHAN on 12 Dec 1682. Sara was born about 1655.
