Quote: "Catalyntje De Vos was three times married, first to Bratt (by whom she had: Aefie, married to Claas Frederichse Van Petten; Ariaantje, married first Helmer Otten; second, 1676, Reyer Schermerhorn; Andries, killed by the Indians, 1690; Cornelia, born 1655, married Jan Poutman; Samuel; Dirk). Second to Barent Janse Van Ditmar, who was killed in 1690. And third, in 1691, to Claas Janse Va Bockhoven. Her will was made in 1699, but she lived till 1712. In the latter year a division of her estate was made between the following parties, by Agreement dated August 11th.: Anne, Arent Bratt (son of Andries), Samuel Bratt, Dirk Bratt, Claas Van Petton and Eva (Aefie), "Syn-wyf", Reyer Schermerhorn and Arianetie his wife, Arant Pootman in behalf of Victor Pootman, David Pootman, Maria Pootman "wyf Van Steven Cofooy", Cattolina Pootman "wyf of Cornelius Post Children of Cornelia Brat, "housewife" of Johannis Pootman, etc." End quote.
NOTE: Thus it will be seen that Pootman was connected with the leading families of Schenectady Patent, particularly the Shermerhorns and Bratts. In the division above mentioned among the signers were Cornelius Pootman and David "Potman" The deed was recorded May, 1715, at albany, and may be found in book I.
