 THIS VERSION OF THE FAMILY TREE WAS PREPARED BY KEITH STEWART BASED ON THE WORK OF ELDON STYMIEST, THE HELP OF JEAN (STYMIEST) ADAMS, CLARA FERGUSON, MAGGIE WEAVER, CAROLYN GEITTMANN, LARRY CORNWELL, SANDY STYMIEST, JOHN STYMEIST, JIM DOOLEY AND OTHERS ALONG WITH MY OWN RESEARCH.

 YOU WILL NOTICE VARIOUS SPELLINGS OF THE STYMIEST (STYMEST) NAME APPARENTLY THE ORIGINAL DUTCH SPELLING WAS "STEYNMETS". HERE ARE MORE VERSIONS I FOUND IN THE BAPTISMAL RECORDS OF THE DUTCH REFORM CHURCH -STYMES,  STEMAN, STEEMAN, STIJMETS, STIMETS, STIMMEIST, STYMEIST, STEINMETS, STEMMITS, STEYNMUTSEN. STEYMETS AND I BELEIVE THERE WERE A COUPLE OF OTHERS I DIDN'T WRITE DOWN. 
 

 FROM WHAT I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LEARN TODATE THE STYMIESTS ARE OF DUTCH ORIGINS, THE FIRST GENERATION I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO FIND BEING "CASPAR STEYNMETS"  WHO CAME TO NEW AMSTERDAM (NEW YORK) IN 1631, HE DIED IN 1702. HE WAS FROM A PLACE CALLED SCHEIDAM, SOUTH HOLLAND WHICH I LOOKED UP AND FOUND TO BE NEAR ROTTERDAM. HE MARRIED JANNETJE GERRITS IN 1652, SHE DIED IN 1670. SHE WAS FROM SUTPHEN, GELDERLUND, HOLLAND, I COULDN'T FIND SUTPHEN ON MY MAP BUT DID FIND GELDERLUND. 
 GIVEN THE DATES OF HIS ARRIVAL IN NORTH AMERICA, THE DATES OF HIS MARRIAGE AND HIS DEATH; I WOULDN'T BE SURPRISED TO FIND OUT HE CAME OVER WITH HIS PARENTS, BUT AT THIS TIME THIS IS ONLY SPECULATION ON MY PART. THIS PART SEEMS TO BE SOLVED NOW AS I FOUND A RECORD SHOWING HIM TO BE BORN IN 1611, THIS WOULD BE REASONABLE  AS I ALSO FOUND OUT THAT HE WAS MARRIED FOUR TIMES. IN ANOTHER FAMILY TREE THEY SAY HE WAS BORN BEFORE 1628 AND POSSIBLY IN BERLIN, GERMANY;  FROM WHAT I CAN SEE I BELIEVE THE 1611 DATE IN HOLLAND TO BE THE CORRECT ONE.
