    Steven Coerts/Koerts Van Voorhees came to America when he was 60 (1660). He landed in New Ams terdam, NY. He was married twice, while still in Holland. The name of his first wife has no t been found in any records. There is a record of the first wife giving birth to his first th ree children. The second wife is the mother of his younger children. The ages of the family c ome from the ship's records, so they may not be correct. (There are ages for six children, bu t seven children came to America.) There were two daughters who were named Hendrickje---one b y each wife. The older Hendrickje was married to Jan Kiersen when she came to America in 1660 . The younger Hendrickje also arrived in America in 1660, and was the first wife of Albert Al bertse TERHUNE. Albert Terhune married two more times after Hendrickje's death.

    Steven Koerts acquired the equipment for the brewing business, so he probably opened a busine ss in Brooklyn, New York, then called the Flatlands (Flatbush).
    By 1677, Steven and his wife, Willempje, were recorded as members of the Dutch Reform Churc h in the Flatlands.
    Steven was appointed a magistrate in 1664, and in th same year, along with Elbert Elbertse ST OOTHOFF, represented Nieuw Amersfoort in the Provincial Assembly.
    In October 1667, Steven, along with others, patented the town of Flatlands. [BARTHOLFz.FTW]
