Coenraet Wiest was naturalized 8 and 9 Sept 1715 (Kingston Naturalizations). Conrad Wust and Maria Abel with 5 children were at Wormsdorff circa 1716/17 (Simmendinger Register). Coenradt Twist was a Palatine Debtor in 1718, 1719 (at Kingsberry), and 1721 [Livingston Debt Lists)]. Conrad Wist was a Palatine not willing to remain on the Manor 26 Aug 1724 [Doc. Hist. of NY, III:724)]. Counrat Wiss made his last appearance on Dutchess Co. Tax Rolls in 1733/34 [Dutchess Co. Tax Lists)].
