Mark Hardin was born on Staten Island in 1681 and he died in Prince Wm Co., VA in 1735(I have a copy of his will.) He married a woman named Mary, supposedly Hogue, but there is much controversy over the identity of his wife. She is the daughter of William Hoge and Barbara Hume and was born ca 1690. I do have quite a bit of info on these families, but I would like to know the proper identity of Mark Hardin's wife.

Immigrant: Van Benthuysen , Paulus Martense
Name of Ship: ?
Arrival Date: before 13 August 1654

Origin of Immigrant: Possibly Rijnsburg diocese, Benthuizen, The Netherlands.
Immigrant's Date & Place of Birth: Estimated to be 1624 or 1625.
Immigrant's Date & Place of Death: He was ninety two years of age when he died and was buried in Greenbush, opposite of Albany in 1717.
Immigrant's Spouse: Catherine Van Kleeck
Source of Information: Source: The Van Benthuysen Genealogy, by Alvin Seaward Van Benthuysen and Edith M. McIntosh Hall, published in 1953 by Wilson Engraving and Printing Company, Clay Center, Kansas
Immigrant's Children: Marten Pauluse Van Benthuysen who married Feitje Boorsboom
Barent Van Benthuysen who married first, Aeltje Elting, second, Jannetie Van Wagenen and third, Margaret Leg.
Baltus Pontese Van Benthuysen who married Lydia Dally (my lineage)
Catrina Van Benthuysen who married Jacobus Turk
Gertrude Van Benthuysen who married first, .... Becker, second, James Parker and third, Robert Teuwise Van Deusen
Maritie Van Benthuysen who married John Careny.

Notes: It is believed that Paulus Martense Van Benthuysen arrived in New York or New Netherland in 1654, when we have our first record of him. It is not known whether he settled in New Netherland or any other place before his arrival in Albany, NY in 1654. He married Catherine, a daughter of Barent Baltus Van Kleeck of Flatbush. Catherine was born in Holland about 1639 and came to America in 1654 with her father and his five other children. It is believed that he immigrated from near Haarlem, Holland. Paulus was a wheelwright and sashmaker during his early days in the colony. It is assumed that he had some social status as he was invited to the funeral of Jeremiah Van Rensselaer, Director of Rensselaerswyck Colony on 17 October 1674. He later engaged in farming and may have been involved in the Albany real estate field. He is shown in 1694 and 1695 as Inspector of Supplies for Albany County. --------------------------------------------------

Notes: Jean le Comte , a French Huguenot, arrived in New York with his wife and one son, and in the company of relatives, Isaac See and Nicholas de Vaux, reportedly on the same ship as Sir Edmond Andros, the first English Governor of New York. Jean was soon taken with a fatal illness and died nine months later. The name 'de Graaf' is the Dutch translation of the French 'le Comte', both meaning "the Count". The family name was later anglicized to DeGraff & DeGroff. His son, Moses (aka Moses le Count), (1) married Maria le Blank, by whom he had Samuel, bp.12 May 1680, of whom there is no further record. Early death of his wife prompted Moses to move to Ulster County, NY. He (2) married Hester le Maistre (daughter of Claude le Maistre and Hester du Bois) about 1683. Children were: Maria, bp. Kingston, 19 Jul 1685; m. 1701 to Christian DeYo Jan, bp. Kingston, 6 Mar 1687; m. Maria Peacock Esther, bp. Kingston, 23 Dec, 1688 Susanna, bp. New York, 7 Jan 1691; m.
