Hi Connie and Gladys,
Actually, Johannes de la Montagne was the son of Jean de la Montagne who arrived in New Amsterdam with his wife, Rachel DeForest in 1637. Jean was a well known physician in N.A. See Riker's History of Haarlem. I would be very interested in finding out more about Eckerson/Montanye and Lozier/Losier. I am a descendant of Johannes and Jean de la Montagne, and of Abraham Losier and Annietje Eckerman. I think Annietje was the d/o David and Angenitje Vanderbeck. My Eckerman line would look like this - although I have little documentation for it:
Thomas Hugesson and Sarah Brout/Bray (Could this be Brice?
Jan Thomaszen + Appolonia Swits
Jan Eckerson + Maria Jans Vanaernam
Thomas J. Eckerson and Maria DesMarest
David and Angenitje Vanderbeck
Annatie Eckerson and Abraham Lozier.
Many generations later a Lozier married a Montanye.
I did not know there was a Montanye/Eckerman connection. Could someone clarify this?
The DesMarest family also shows up with the de la Montagnes.
