Immigrant Ancestors

Adriaen Hendricksen Aten,  born about 1615, possibly at Doesburg, Gelderland, died 1700 Flatbush, Kings County, New York
Note: Kit 318572, owned by Niko Aten, was not a New Netherland settler but descends from Dirk Jans, who lived in the Netherlands as did his descendants. It is thought there is no connection to Adriaen Hendricksen Aten.
