    Notes 
    • From the article by Darlene Ruch-"after the birth of their first child in 1694,Jan and Eva moved to Hackensack, New Jersey. On June 9, 1708, he purchased a large tract of land extending from the Hackensack River to the Saddle River. In1720, he purchased 362 acres in Singac Brook (now Preaknes). Jan was the Justice of the Peace for Bergan County during the years 1720, 1721, 1723-27, and 1731."
    • "The Berdan line comes from French and Dutch Huegenots who settled in New Jersey after arriving in New York Port (New Amsterdam) in 1682. Jan Berdan was his name and he married a lady from a prestigious family. She was Eva van Sicklen and daughter of Fernandus van Sicklen and Eva Antonis Janse van Salee. Eva Antonis in turn was born of Anthony Janse van Salee and Grietje Reyniers. The fun starts with Anthony’s father, Jan Janse van Haarlem, who was a Dutch buccaneer on the Moroccan coast headquartered in a town called Salee. Anthony was born in Salee of Jan Janse and a Moroccan concubine (an honorable position in those days). Never know who’s going to show up in your lineage. Jackie Kennedy comes from the same line. Her father was called “Black Jack” for a reason. Tre’ cool, huh." --e-mail from Robert Clark (Lucille)
