Rebecca, testator's widow, died about Nov. 15, 1755. Johannes and Sarah had children, but were also deceased before 1759. Ann's husband was Jacques Denys; perhaps she was also deceased in 1759, when the Court in New Jersey directed a settlement of the estate of legacies, which Hendrick as surviving Executor, still had in hand. An execution followed against Hendrick, who, like Benjamin, plaintiff in the suit, resided at Six-Mile Run, Somerset Co., N. J.]. Hereinafter cited as NJ Wills v.3 1751-1760.

  • John Emans is claimed as a son of Andries Imans first by T. G. Bergen in Register in Alphabetical Order of the Early Settlers of Kings County, Long Island (1881), but no evidence for this claim is given. This belief has since been generally accepted in other accounts of John Emans, however, acceptable evidence is lacking. Andries Imans' age is not known, while John Emans was an adult, probably over the age of 25, by 1652. The sons assigned to Andries Imans by Bergen are in actuality, John Emans' sons. This is evidenced in John's will of 1714.19

Also states that John married as his second wife, Neeltje Cranen, but this is incorrect, as John's second was identified in his will as Engeltje (identified as Engeltje Lourense, widow of Jan Van Cleef).

They show exact 37/37 as well as 36/37 marker matches indicating they are tightly related (very few people achieve this close level of a match) and 35/37 marker matches which also indicates a close relationship. It is believed that Brewer children, related to John/Elsie Brewer, were taken in by the Rose and Embody families and they took those surnames as their own.
