"Wageningen is one of the prominent towns of Holland, located on the banks of the River Rhine, in the Province of Gelderland, and is noted as a summer resort. The family in this country has descended from two distinct pioneers, so far as we know in no way related. The first was Aert Jacobsen, who came over about 1648 and settled in Bethlehem, New York, and later in Esopus. The Van Wagenens of that section are his descendants.
"Gerrit Gerritsen, of Bergen fame, arrived in New Amsterdam with his wife Annetje Hermans, December 23, 1660, and settled in Communipaw. He soon took a leading part in public affairs."11
