There are a LOT of people in Ulster County at this time named Andries DeWitt. Can’t always tell which is being referred to in a particular document. But since the following will names both Andries and Charles DeWitt, Esq., it is possible that the Andries in question (from Napanoch, a hamlet down by Wawarsing) is this one:

In the name of God, Amen. I, Philip
Lavinus, of Rochester, in Ulster County, being weak. I
give to my negro man, “Harry,” his freedom. I leave
all the rest of my real and personal estate to my trusty
friends, Andries De Witt, of Neponogh, in said County,
Provided, nevertheless, that if my said negro man Harry
shall properly obtain his freedom, according to law, and
be baptized and become a member of the Christian
Church, and shall be every way quallified to receive a
title; in such case it is my desire that the said Andries De
Witt convey the said estate to him. I make Andries De
Witt, Dirk Hoornbeck, Matthews Cartreght, executors.
Dated April 20, 1771. Witnesses, Arie Oosterhout,
Hendricus Oosterhout, Charles De Witt, Esq. Proved,
November 27, 1771.

from New-York Historical Society Collections, Vol. VIII [1899], “Abstracts of Wills on file in the Surrogate’s Office, City of New York, 1771-1776 (available at and in other places online). “Neponogh” is Napanoch, a hamlet in the town of Wawarsing, in the southwest corner of Ulster County, New York.

Baptismal and Marriage Registers of the Old Dutch Church of Kingston, Ulster County, New York (formerly named Wiltwyck, and often familiarly called Esopus or ’Sopus), for One Hundred and Fifty Years from their commencement in 1660. Transcribed and edited by Roswell Randall Hoes, Chaplain U.S.N., corresponding secretary of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, etc. New York 1891; original publication De Vinne Press, New York; available today from Higginson Book Co., Salem, Mass., 508-745-7170. Detailed information about baptisms has been filled in through the end of 1687, marriages through 1701. More information is available. Records begin 1660. Other baptisms may have taken place in Hurley and other locations nearby; also from time to time itinerant ministers would travel through and perform various rites, not always entered in the books.

Thomas Grier Evans, The De Witt Family of Ulster County, New York (reprinted from the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, October 1886), New York: Trow’s Printing and Bookbinding Co., 201-213 East Twelfth Street, 1886. Available online from Evans’s work, reprinted in 1886 up to the point where it left off in Volume XVIII of the Record, was continued in 1890 (Volume XXI, commencing on p. 185) with additional names and family numbering. The reprinted portion includes names of descendants to the fourth generation; the extension shows their descendants, the fifth generation, with considerable further biographical information on some. This later addition to Evans’s work (he also published details on other families that intermarried with DeWitts in Ulster County, including Crispells, Bruyns, and others) extended into Volume XXII (January 1891, pp. 3-6). (I include here links to some publicly available copies of the individual issue and articles from the Record, but a better way to get access to it and a wealth of other genealogical resources, in addition to supporting genealogical research in general, is to join the NYGBS itself.)

Marbletown, New York, baptism records at

Napanoch Church Records should be somewhere (possibly titled Wawarsing). And sure enough, the Kerckelick Protocoll voor de Gemeynte van Wawarssinck (Church Record for the Congregation of Wawarsing), starting with the church’s dedication on 20 October 1745, was collected and transcribed separately by both the Holland Society and the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, which published the results in the Record, Volume 50, 1919 (available at, starting on Page 7 with a brief history of the church and of the transcription efforts. The NYGBS transcription is edited by Royden Woodward Vosburgh; he refers in his introduction to Dingman Versteeg’s 1898 transcription for the Holland Society. (Also worth a look: The Wikitree One Place Study of Wawarsing Hamlet, which gives a good concise history of the place with genealogy in mind, mentioning family names, some historical points of interest, and neighboring villages.) The transcription was extensive, running through all four issues of the Record in 1919 and on into Volume 51 in 1920. The very first baptism recorded in the record is that of MVDW 135 Ruben, the son of Egbert DeWitt (MVDW 24, one of the founders of the congregation) and Maria Nottingham. Wawarsing church records can be found in New York Genealogical and Biographical Society Record, Vols. 50 and 51 (1919 and 1920), transcribed and edited by Royden Woodward Vosburgh (thanks WikiTree for this note).
