John Henry Gesner1

b. 24 September 1749, d. 10 June 1833
  • John Henry Gesner was born on 24 September 1749.2
  • He was baptized on 3 December 1749 at Tappan Reformed Church, Tappan, New York; sponsors Jan Ferdon, & wife Brichye, in name of Henry Ludlow, & wife, Mary.2
  • He married Ann Onderdonck, daughter of Andros Onderdonck and Sarah Remsen, on 18 September 1771.3
  • John Henry Gesner died on 10 June 1833 at Nyack, Rockland Co., New York.4
  • John Henry Gesner is on the list of signers of the Orangetown Resolution of 1775, but he appears to have not taken any part in the Revolutionary War. The Gesners of Nova Scotia and New York, pp.20-21 gives an account of events during this period that effected John Henry Gesner's life. He lived at Nyack, New York and ran a pettiauger on the Hudson River. Some unfavorable encounters with the British, who confiscated his boat, forced Gesner and his family to remove to New York City for some time, where he worked in a saw-mill. After the war the family went to Nova Scotia, but returned to Nyack, New York sometime prior to 1797.4
  • John Gesner was deposed on 17 Sep 1832 in Rockland County, New York before Peter Smith, J.P. of Orange town, "in which place John Gesner lives." John Gesner states that he is 83 years old and is the legal son of Famaiche, the daughter of Adolph Brower, sister of Nicholas. He states that according to "frequent and repeated conversations of his parents and relatives inhis younger days and according to his best knowledge and memory doth believe that said Adolph Brower was the son of Jacob or Jacobus Brower and Annette Bogardus."5

Nicholas Gesner1

b. 10 December 1765, d. 1858
  • Nicholas Gesner was born on 10 December 1765.2
  • He was baptized on 26 January 1766 at Tappan Reformed Church, Tappan, New York; sponsors Elisabet Gisner, wife of Jacob Conkelin, Jr.2
  • He married Gracie Post, daughter of Abraham Post and Rebecca Gracey.1
  • Nicholas Gesner died in 1858.3
  • Nicholas was a mechanic and shipbuilder. He invented a loom for weaving the Dutch double-faced blankets and bed covers. As a young adult he taught school near his home, was frequently called upon to draw up legal papers for his neighors, and was a surveyor. His diary covers a period of twenty-one years from 1830 until 1851, and in 1912 was housed at the Palisades Library. In 1811 he was first a major in Lieut. Col. Blauvelt's regiment of Rockland County, New York, and in 1816 was promoted to colonel in the 160th NY Regt. As early as 1798 he had held the rank of ensign in the Rockland County militia.4
  • Nicholas Gesner and Robert Pitcairn exchanged a series of letters in the early 1850s regarding the status of the lawsuits against the Trinity Church Corp. In the letters Nicholas Gesner speaks of the length of time (over twenty years) and the cost (one number mentioned being $9000) he has invested in the efforts, and his disatisfaction of how nothing has come of it all.5
  • In February 1857 Nicholas Gesner resided at Orange, Rockland Co., New York.
  • In the 1840's, Nicholas Gesner, and other family members spent considerable time and money in an effort to recover possession of the Trinity Church (NYC) property. Apparently, Nicholas believed he was descended from the fabled Anneke Jans, wife of Dom. Everardus Boargdus, through their daughter Anneke Bogardus who married Jacob Brouwer. The Gesner family mistakenly believed that Adolphus Brouwer, father of Femmetje Brouwer, Nicholas Gesner's mother, was a son of Jacob Brouwer and Anneke Bogardus. This incorrect descent continued at least through 1912, when it was published in The Gesners of Nova Scotia and New York.
    A defense of the Brouwer ancestry of Nicholas Gesner as a response to the publication of "Anneke Jans Bogardus and Her Descendants," by J.R. Totten, was submitted by Anthon T. Gesner, author of The Gesners of Nova Scotia and New York, and can be found in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record 57 (1926): 81-84.
  • Nicholas Gesner left a diary (1829-1850) which is available at the Palisades Library. An account of the diary (not the actual diary itself) was written by Alice Munro Haagensen and published in South of the Mountains, vol. 34, no. 2, 1990.6
