Interesting facts
g The "de Duyster" appendage apparently was added because supposedly there were several Englishmen named Williamson in the colony and so "de Duyster" (the Dutchman) was added to the surname of our Jan to distinguish him from the others.
g Alternate spelling of his last name is "Willenszen", which translates to "William's son"
g A book that examines the history of early settlers of the area where Jan resided is: Walter Kenneth Griffith, The New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol. XL No. 3, July, 1909, New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, 226 West 58th Street, NY, pages 185 - 190.

Sept. 1, 1689, in Kingston, Ulster, N.Y.
