Jacob Gerritszen1

b. 14 October 1646, d. between 9 June 1708 and 19 September 1709
  • Jacob Gerritszen was baptized on 14 October 1646 at Reformed Dutch Church, New Amsterdam; sponsors Hendrick Pieterszen, Engel Mans, Claes Cornelis.2
  • He married Christina Cresson, daughter of Pierre Cresson and Rachel Claes, circa 1673.1

  • Also known as Jacob Gerritsen de Haes.3
  • Also known as Jacob Gerrits Haas.
  • Also known as Jacob Garrison.
  • Jacob Gerrits appears as a resident of New Utrecht in Aug 1667. In 1668 he and his brother John mortgaged their wheat crop. In 1671 Jacob is listed as a debtor to the estate of Asser Levy. On 10 Oct 1674 Jacob and Zeger Gerritse (same patronymic but not related) received a patent for 72 acres of land south of the Fresh Kill on Staten Island (this was made during the brief period of time when the Dutch regained control of the colony. Once the English regained control the land grants issued during this period were apparently disgarded, and there is no evidence that Jacob or Zeger received this land). In 1675 Jacob is on the assessment roll at New Utecht, Long Island with 24 morgens of land. He is not on the 1676 assessment at New Utecht and must have moved to Staten Island at this time. In 1677 he received one of the New Lots at New Utrecht and sold it to Gysbert Thysen and Thys Jansen. Jacob's other lands at New Utrecht were sold on 14 May 1680. In 1688 he was a Justice for Richmond County, and sold land to Leonard Berryman. The two were llater associated in a land deal in Salem County, New Jersey. In Feb 1690, "Jacob Gareson Hause," was recorded in an action by the Richmond County Commissioners. Jacob moved his family to southern New Jersey in about 1691, and he is first referensed there in April 1694 in a survey of land adjoining "land surveyed for Thomas Budd,now in possession of Jacob Garrassen" along Cedar Creek branch. Thomas Budd deeded 600 acres to Jacob in 1696. Jacob sold 300 acres to Leonard Berryman in 1698 and the remainder of the original 600 acres in two deeds in 1703. At this time he moved to Autuxit or Turkey Point, Salem County (now in Cumberland Co.) and acquired more land. In 1707 he was on the Grand Jury in Salem County.4
  • His will was dated on 4 September 1705 Called Jacob Garrison of Cohansy, Salem County, New Jersey. Names wife Christina, and son Abraham to have his plantation after the death of his mother or when 21 years of age. Named grandson Isaac, son of son Isaac, lately deceased, and Isaac's wife Lidian. A codicil was made on 8 Jun 1708. On 7 Jan 1709 Garret, Peter, Jacob and John Garrison signed a release to their mother Christian of all rights and claims on the estate left by their father, Jacob. This witnessed by Fridrick Garrison, and sworn to at Burlington on 19 Sep 1709 when the will and codicil were proved.5

  • Early in his life Abraham Gesner was involved in commercial shipping ventures, then at the age of twenty-eight went to London to study surgery and medicine at Grey's and St. Bartholomew's Hospitals. After receiving his degree he returned to Nova Scotia and settled at Parrsboro on the Bay of Fundy. Having an interest in geology and mineralogy, he published in 1836, Remarks of the Geology and Minerology of Nova Scotia, and two years later was appointed Provincial Geologist of New Brunswick, and moved to St. John, New Brunswick, where he established the "Gesner Museum," later purchased by the Natural Historical Society of New Brunswick. He later returned to Cornwallis, Nova Scotia, and published, New Brunswick, With Notes for Emigrants, and Industrial Resources of Nova Scotia. Meanwhile he continued his practice in medicine, and experimented with electricity, constructing and electric engine which was driven by a voltaic battery. In 1850 he moved to Sacville, and in 1852 to Halifax, Nova Scotia. After meeting Lord Dundonald, Admiral of the B.N.A. Station and the discoverer of illuminating gas, the two worked at extracting burning oil for lamps from the asphaltum of Pitch Lake, Trinidad. Dr. Gesner then went on to extract illuminating oil from coal which he patented in 1854 as "Kerosolene" in the U.S. (patent nos. 11,203; 11,204; 11,205 U.S. Patent Office, June 27, 1854.

  4. [S1005] Find A Grave, online www.findagrave.com. , searched May 28, 2007; bio by "bigwoo", :"“The Father of Kerosene.” Although a medical doctor, his love for geology led this Canadian to revolutionize the energy industry. Beginning in his childhood on the Nova Scotia coast, he collected and studied fossils and rocks becoming a self-taught geologist. In the mid-1840s he began experimenting with coal looking for an alternative illuminant to whale oil. By distilling lumps of coal he was able to develop a clear liquid that when lit with a wick produced a bright light. He called the new fuel “kerosene”. His discovery was a success and he moved to Long Island, New York where he established the North American Kerosene Light Company. His company eventually became a part of Standard Oil Company and he returned to Canada to teach at Dalhousie University. His work, “A Practical Treatise on Coal, Petroleum and Other Distilled Oils” published in 1861, is recognized as a standard in the industry. In 1933, Imperial Oil Company erected a tombstone at the geologist’s grave in his honor.". Hereinafter cited as Find A Grave.
