  4. [S880] Dr. Cornelius N. Hoagland, Hoagland Family, pp. 55-64; p. 63, fn 25 "The record of this marriage license is in Book v., p. 148, New York Surrogate’s office. The name as there written has generally been taken to be "' Willett,” and is so printed in the New York Geneal. and Biog. Record. Mr. Riker makes it “ Tellett.” My impression is that she was Sarah Teller, a daughter of William Teller, merchant, of Albany, and half sister to Helena, the wife of Francis Rombouts.—D. H. C."

It contains a record, in his own handwriting, of his birth and the births of his children, and this record he prefaces thus: “ Anno Domini, 1760, in November, copied out of Erasmus of Rotterdam into this Bible."
    In the old family burying grounds, on the farm, and in sight of the homestead, are found the graves of not less than four Christopher Hooglands, who, in succession, have been the owners of this farm. One memorial stone has inscriptions on both sides as follows:
    The Graves of
    Born I699, Died I777,
    And WIFE

    the Angel of Eternal Life.
