Personal Information and photo links below :
- John (Johannes Vermilye) (see Page 6 of Vermilye book),
birth date unknown. In 1717 Johannes of Forham bought a farm at Yonkers
from William Betts which was close to Kingsbridge, as Betts land was part
of that formerly owned by Elisa Doughty ; later he bought several additional
farms, at death owning 600 acres, which he distributed amongst his children ;
he must have been pretty well off financially, for he and Jacob Dyckman built a
bridge across Harlem River. Will dated 1776, proved 23 April 1782. Johannes married
Sarah Odell, daughter of John Odell, and married a second time to Maritia (X). He
had 12 children probably all by his first wife. His will began "John VerMille, of
Yonkers" and was signed "John Vermilya", wife Martia gets household goods and 70 Lbs
and use of any room in house so long as she remains widow ; which indicates that
in 1776 when the will was made she was still not very aged ; she and Abraham
and Fredrick were made executers.
